TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

ISLAM ON THE RISE.

SIGNS THE ARAB SPRING COULD

RESULT IN EXTREME MUSLIM CONTROL

OF THE MIDDLE EAST.

PLUS, DESPERATION IN TURKEY.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE STRUGGLE TO

SURVIVE FOLLOWING THIS WEEKEND'S

EARTHQUAKE.

AND PAYING FOR SCHOOL.

THE PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS HE

WILL BYPASS CONGRESS TO HELP

STUDENTS WITH MASSIVE LOANS.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE

TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH."

THE WORLD WAS

HOPING THE ARAB SPRING WOULD

MEAN MORE DEMOCRACY IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

GOOD EVENING I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

ON SUNDAY, TUNISIA, THE ISLAMIST

CAPTURED MOST THE VOTES.

ISLAM, NOT DEMOCRACY WILL

DOMINANT THE REGION.

CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS.

REPORTER: WHEN MOHAMMED DIED

14 CENTURIES AGO, THE MUSLIM

WORLD NEEDED SOMEONE TO TAKE THE

PROPHET'S PLACE.

THE CANDIDATE WAS THE LEADER

OF ISLAM.

FOR 400 YEARS THE ISTANBUL

WAS THE POLITICAL CENTER OF THE

MUSLIM WORLD.

FOR HERE THEY RULED THE EM POIR

FROM 1517 UNTIL THE EMPIRE FELL

AFTER WORLD WAR I.

IN 1924, THE TURKISH LEADER

OTTER SINCE THEN MANY DREAMED OF

ITS RETURN.

THIS CAN BE DONE UNDER THE

LEADERSHIP UNDER ONE, WHO HE

HIMSELF, ONLY CAN DECLARE A HOLY

WAR, A JIHAD.

SOME BELIEVE IT WILL PROCEED

THE ISLAMIC MESSIAH.

MANY MODERN ISLAMIC GROUPS SHARE

THE GOAL OF RESTORING, INCLUDING

TALIBAN, HAMAS, AND THE GRAND

DADDY OF THEM ALL, THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD WAS SET UP

IN 1928, AND SPECIFIC MISSION

WAS TO RE-ESTABLISH JUST FOUR

YEARS LATER.

THEIR GOAL REMAINS TO SET UP ONE

WORLD ISLAMIC GOVERNMENT.

BROTHERHOOD HAS A FOOTHOLD IN

EGYPT.

IT BECAME THE COUNTRY'S MOST

ORGANIZED POLITICAL PARTY.

WHAT THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

WOULD LIKE TO SEE IS A STRONG

POWERFUL ISLAMIC WORLD

GOVERNMENT ARMED WITH NUCLEAR

WEAPONS WHETHER PROVIDED BY

PAKISTAN OR IRAN, DOESN'T

MATTER.

THEY WOULD BE GRADUALLY

ELIMINATING CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH

GOVERNMENTS.

ANOTHER POTENTIAL POWER

PLAYER IS TURKISH PRIME MINISTER

ERDAWAN.

I THINK THIS IS WHAT IS

BEHIND HIM WANTING TO SEND THE

TURKISH NAVY TO HAVE A PEACEFUL

FLOTIL

FLOTILLA.

HE IS DREAMING ABOUT THE

RE-ESTABLISHMENT OF THE CALFIT.

HE CAN EASILY PUSH THIS AREA

INTO GREAT WAR.

THREAT OF WAR LEAD MANY TO

SAY THE SO-CALLED ARAB SPRING IS

A MISNOMER I WOULDN'T CALL IT

AN ARAB SPRING.

CBN NEWS, CHRIS MITCHELL,

TURKEY.

ERICK STAKELBECK JOINS US.

THIS NEW TO ME, WHAT KIND OF

THREAT WOULD A RESTORED CALLFIT

POSE TO THE REST OF THE WORLD?

LEE, PICTURE ALL OF ISLAMIC

NATIONS UNITED INTO ONE

POLITICAL, ECONOMIC, AND

MILITARY FORCE, IRAN, EGYPT,

TURKEY, SAUDI ARABIA, JORDAN,

SYRIA, PUTTING ASIDE SUNNI, SHIA

DIFFERENCES TO CREATE ONE GLOBAL

ISLAMIC SUPERSTATE UNITED TO

TAKE ON ISRAEL AND THE WEST.

THAT IS WHAT THE CALSTATE IS,

LEE.

SUCH A UNITED FORCE COULD WREAK

IN THE MIDDLE EAST, AGAINST THE

WEST WITH THE U.S. BEING THE

MAIN TARGET.

ERICK, DO YOU THINK THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION RECOGNIZES THIS

THREAT?

THEY ARE HELPING TO LAY A NEW

GROUND WORK, NO. 1 IN IN EGYPT

BACKING OUSTING OF HOSNI

MUBARAK, PAVING WAY FOR MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD.

TAKING OUT ANWAR AL-AWLAKI.

THEN IN TUNISIA.

IN THE FIRST FREE ELECTIONS, A

RADICAL ISLAMIST PARTY ONE.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

SUPPORTED THE ARAB SPRING.

RADICAL ISLAMISTS OR WORSE THAN

THE PREVIOUS GOVERNMENTS TAKING

HOLD.

I THOUGHT I READ A MODERATE

ISLAMIST.

IF YOU SUPPORT JIHAD, AND

EXTERMINATION OF THE JEWISH

PEOPLE, YOU ARE NOT TOO

MODERATE.

THE U.S. GOVERNMENT THINK THE

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, WHO WE ARE

ACTIVELY ENGAGED IN JIHAD, LEE.

AS I SAID, LEE, AN ISLAMISTS IS

AN ISLAMIST, WHETHER THEY ARE

BLOWING SOMEONE UP OR NOT, THEIR

END GAME IS THE SAME, THIS

CALFATE IS THE SAME FOR ONE AND

ALL.

ERICK STAKELBECK.

THANKS FOR YOUR INSIGHTS, WE

APPRECIATE.

> SITUATION IN TURKEY IS

BECOMING DESPERATE.

460 PEOPLE DIED IN QUAKE.

THOUSANDS HAVE NO SHELTER FROM

THE NEAR FREEZING TEMPERATURES.

OPERATION BLESSING IS ON THE

SCENE.

DAVID DARG REPORTS FROM ONE OF

THE BLESSING CAMPS.

OPERATION BLESSING HAS MADE

IT TO THE HARDEST HIT TOWN AND

HERE WITH 170 FAMILIES.

THE COLD IS SETTING IN.

HE WANTS US TO LOOK AT THE

LITTLE KID.

KIDS ALL OVER THE PLACE.

MOOD IS QUITE SOMBER.

THESE PEOPLE HAVE BEEN DISPLACED

FROM THEIR HOMES AND AN

UNCERTAIN FUTURE.

OPERATION BLESSING IS ASSESSING

NEEDS IN SURROUNDING AREA.

TOMORROW WE'LL PURCHASE BLANKETS

AND FOOD, ALL THE THINGS TO KEEP

THEM FED.

GERMAN MEDICAL PARTNER, HUMEDICA

HAS BEEN TREATING PATIENTS.

PEOPLE ARE STILL BEING DRAGGED

OUT OF THE EARTHQUAKE TODAY.

OPERATION BLESSING SUPPORTING

THAT MEDICAL EFFORT.

WE ARE HAVING A BIG IMPACT, DAY

1, ON THE TURKEY EARTHQUAKE.

DAVID DARG REPORTING FROM

TURKEY.

AT HOME, THE OCCUPY WALL STREET

IS BEING FUELLED BY THE SIZE OF

STUDENT LOANS.

YOUNG VOTERS MAKE UP A KEY PART

OF PRESIDENT OBAMA'S BASE.

TODAY IN DENVER, THEY CAME UP

WITH A PLAN TO LOWER THEIR

PAYMENTS.

JOHN WAAGE EXPLAINS.

WE ARE NOT ANTICAPITALIST.

WE ARE ANTIGREED.

NOT ALL STUDENTS ARE AS VOCAL

AS THESE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF

CENTRAL FLORIDA.

COLLEGE COSTS ROSE AGAIN LAST

YEAR.

ONE CONTRIBUTING FACTOR TO

CAMPUS PROTESTS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA TRIED TO

CAPITALIZE WITH STUDENTS TO

CONSOLIDATE LOANS.

OVER THE PASSED THREE

DECADES, COST OF COLLEGE HAS

NEARLY TRIPLED.

THAT IS FORCING YOU, FORCING

STUDENTS TO TAKE OUT MORE LOANS

AND RACK UP MORE DEBT.

PRESIDENT SAY IT IS LOANS ARE

NECESSARY TO HELP THE U.S.

COMPETE GLOBALLY.

OVER THE NEXT DECADE, 60

PERCENT OF NEW JOBS WILL REQUIRE

MORE THAN A HIGH SCHOOL DEPLOMA.

OTHER COUNTRIES ARE HUSTLING TO

OUT EDUCATE US TODAY SO THEY CAN

OUT COMPETE US TOMORROW.

THEY WANT THE JOBS OF THE

FUTURE.

I WANT YOU TO HAVE THOSE JOBS.

PRESIDENT IN FULL CAMPAIGN

MODE BLASTING GOP REPUBLICANS IN

CONGRESS AND ISSUE EXECUTIVE

ARE GOING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WE

ONE OF AMERICA'S FOREMOST POLICY

ADVISERS FROM REAGAN AND BUSH

OF THE WORLD.

SERIOUS DISCUSSION OF FOREIGN

POLICY.

FEATURES.
