Pat: WELL, IN AN

EXTRAORDINARY MOVE TO SEEK

PEACE THE GOVERNMENT OF

ISRAEL RELEASED 1,000

TERRORISTS, CRIMINALS,

PALESTINIAN THAT HAD BEEN

HELD IN THEIR PRISON, IN

EXCHANGE FOR ONE ISRAELI

SOLDIER.

DID IT BRING PEACE?

NOT ON YOUR LIFE.

PALESTINIAN TERRORISTS

LAUNCHED DEADLIED ROCKET

ATTACKS ON ISRAELI CIVILIANS

THIS WEEKEND.

ISRAEL SAID THEY'RE GOING TO

DEFEND THEMSELVES, SO THEY

HIT BACK, TARGETING THE

TERRORISTS WITH AIR

STRIKES.

Terry: THE WEEKEND

ISSUES RAISED CONCERNS THAT

ISRAEL COULD SOON BE AT

WAR.

Reporter: THE ISRAELI

PRESIDENT SAID ROCKETS FROM

GAZA ARE LIKE A PALESTINIAN

WAR.

KILLING ONE ISRAELI, LEAVING

MANY IN SHOCK, AND DOING

EXTENSIVE DAMAGE.

ONE OF THE ROCKETS HIT HERE

IN THIS PARKING LOT, NEXT TO

AN APARTMENT BUILDING IN

ASHTOD, 22 MILES FROM THE

GAZA STRIP.

RESIDENTS HERE SAY THEY ARE

TERRIFIED.

IT HAS BEEN REALLY TENSE

AND REALLY SCARY.

YOU JUST DON'T KNOW WHERE IT

IS GOING TO COME FROM.

Reporter: THE ISRAELI

ARMY RELEASED THIS VIDEO,

SHOWING WHAT IT SAYS WAS

PALESTINIANS PREPARING TO

LAUNCH A ROCKET AT ISRAEL.

ISRAELIS FOUGHT BACK.

THE ISRAELIS DEFENSE

FORCES ACTED AGAINST THE

LAUNCH OF ROCKETS INTO

ISRAEL.

Reporter: ISLAMIC JIHAD

CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY FOR

MOST OF THE ROCKETS.

BUT EXPERTS SAY THE TERROR

GROUPS TAKE ORDERS FROM

HAMAS.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAYS

HAMAS IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE

VIOLENCE.

HAMAS HELD SHALIT CAPTIVE,

AND SOME SAY NOW THAT HE IS

OUT, ISRAEL SHOULD ACT MORE

AGGRESSIVE AGAINST HAMAS AND

GAZA.

THIS COMES AS PALESTINIAN

CONTINUE THEIR UNILATERAL

BID FOR STATEHOOD AT THE

UNITED NATIONS.

ISRAEL SAYS THE MOVE WILL

LEAD TO INSTABILITY AND

POTENTIALLY TO VIOLENCE.

ISRAELI LEADERS ARE CALLING

ON THE PALESTINIANS TO

RETURN TO THE NEGOTIATING

TABLE.

BUT MANY PEOPLE BELIEVE

PEACE TALKS ARE UNLIKELY

NOW, AND ARE CONCERNED THAT

ISRAEL IS IN FOR TROUBLED

TIMES AHEAD.

JULIE STAHL, CBN NEWS.

Pat: SOME TIME AGO WHEN

ISRAEL GAVE UP GAZA, I SAID

IT WAS A TRAGIC MISTAKE.

BECAUSE GOD SPEAKS TO THOSE

WHO DIVIDE HIS LAND, AND

GAZA IS PART OF HIS LAND.

AND I KNOW THEY DIDN'T WANT

IT BECAUSE IT IS A SEA BED

OF POVERTY.

BUT BY GIVING GAZA TO THE

PALESTINIANS, ISRAEL GAVE

THEM A LAUNCHING PLATFORM

FOR ROCKETS THAT HIT DEEP

INTO ISRAEL.

AND NOW THEY'RE DOING IT.

SO SIMON IS A DECLARATION OF

WAR.

ARE THEY GOING TO WAR?

AND WHO GETS WORK?

THE INNOCENT.

THE PALESTINIANS STIR UP

TROUBLE, AND THE POOR PEOPLE

PAY.

AND IT IS HARD TO TARGET

YOUR PARTICULAR FOES AND

LEAVE OUT WHAT THEY CALL

COLLATERAL DAMAGE.

IT IS A SAD THING, BUT IT

LOOKS LIKE IT IS COMING.

LEE WEBB HAS THE REST OF OUR

TOP STORIES FROM THE CBN

NEWSROOM.

Reporter: PAT, RELATED

TO THAT, A SAUDI PRINCE HAS

PLACED A $1 MILLION BOUNTY

ON ANY CAPTURED SAUDI

OFFICER.

THE CLERIC PROMISED $100,000

FOR THE CAPTURE OF ISRAELI

SOLDIERS TO BE USED IN

ANOTHER PRISONER SWAP.

IT FOLLOWS THE DEAL WITH

GILAD SHALIT.

A RARE SNOWSTORM KILLED

ABOUT FIVE PEOPLE IN THE

NORTH EAST.

ABOUT 2 MILLION ARE WITHOUT

POWER.

STATES OF MEC EMERGENCY ARE

DECLARED IN PARTS OF NEW

JERSEY.

I CAN'T SAY FOR SURE

THEY'LL HAVE THE POWER EIGHT

DAYS IN THIS AREA; BUT THE

GUYS ARE OUT WORKING.

Reporter: SNOWFALL

TOTALS HAVE TOPPED TWO FEET

IN WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS,

BREAKING ALL PREVIOUS

OCTOBER RECORDS.

A NEW POLL SHOWS REPUBLICAN

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE

HERMAN CAIN BARELY AHEAD OF

MITT ROMNEY IN IOWA.

AND NOW CAIN IS FACING NEW

CHALLENGES.

CAIN WAS ACCUSED OF

INAPPROPRIATE AND SEXUALLY

SUGGESTIVE BEHAVIOR BY TWO

WOMEN.

THE STORY SAYS THE WOMEN

WERE PAID TO LEAVE THE

ASSOCIATION AND KEEP QUIET.

NO SOURCES WERE NAMED.

CAIN'S CAMPAIGN, THOUGH,

DENIED THE ALLEGATIONS AND

CALLS THEM UNSUBSTANTIATED

PERSONAL ATTACKS.

PAT?

Pat: THIS IS THE WAY IT

IS WHEN SOMEBODY WHO IS A

REPUBLICAN STARTS GAINING IN

THE POLLS AND LOOKS LIKE HE

MIGHT BE A POTENTIAL

PRESIDENT.

AND THEN, OF COURSE, THE

LONG KNIVES ARE OUT.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE

POLITICAL LEANEES ARE, BUT I

SUGGEST THEY'RE SO-CALLED

--

Terry: ANYBODY CAN SAY

THAT ABOUT ANYONE.

IT IS SOMETHING TO BE

BATTLED.

Pat: APPARENTLY, THE

STORY IS THAT THE THING WAS

SCHEDULED FOR AN UNDISCLOSED

SOURCE, AND THE WOMEN, IN A

SENSE, GOT PAID OFF.

AND THE NEGOTIATIONS WERE

SEALED.

SO THEY CAN'T TELL WHAT

HAPPENED.

CAIN IS IN A BOX.

HE CAN'T TELL ANYBODY

EITHER, IF ANYTHING DID

HAPPEN.

SO -- BOY.

THAT'S THE KIND OF WORLD WE

LIVE IN.

WE JUST GET USED TO IT.

I DON'T THINK WE SHOULD BE

SWAYED BY THESE THINGS

BECAUSE I DOUBT IF THEY HAVE

MUCH SUBSTANCE.

LEE?

Reporter: PAT, THE

PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IS ONE

YEAR FROM TOMORROW.

AND THE ECONOMY WILL LIKELY

BE THE TOP ISSUE FOR

VOTERS.

IT WAS ALSO THE SUBJECT OF

REGENT UNIVERSITY'S CLASH OF

THE TITANS THIS WEEKEND.

THE DEBATE WAS CALLED

"COUNTDOWN TO COLLAPSE,

SOLVING AMERICA'S ECONOMIC

CRISIS."

Reporter: IT IS CALLED

"CLASH OF THE TITANS"

BECAUSE IT PITS HEAVY

WEIGHTS AGAINST EACH OTHER.

NO GOUGING, NO BITING,

AND NO KICKING.

AND YOU MAINTAIN CIVILITY.

I THINK YOU'LL HAVE A

WONDERFUL DEBATE AND I HOPE

THEY COME UP WITH SOME

SOLUTIONS TO AMERICA'S DEBT

PROBLEMS.

Reporter: BRETT BEAR

MODERATED THE CA DEBATE,

WHICH CENTERED ON THE SIZE

OF GOVERNMENT IN SOLVING THE

ECONOMIC CRISIS.

THE REPUBLICANS WANT IT

SMALLER, LESS SPENDING,

LOWER TAXES, AND FEWER

REGULATIONS.

WHILE THE DEMOCRATS WANT

BIGGER GOVERNMENT AND EVEN

MORE SPENDING TO SPUR

GROWTH.

WHAT ABOUT THE FAMOUS

OBAMA CARE?

THE TRUTH IS THAT OBAMA CARE

LET'S BUSINESSES, IF THEY

WANT TO, DO SOMETHING

THEY'VE NEVER BEEN ALLOWED

TO DO BEFORE.

THE PUBLIC PLAN?

THAT'S A LOT LESS THAN THE

COST YOU'RE NOW PAYING FOR

WORKERS.

IF DR. SUMMERS IS RIGHT,

AND I THINK HE IS, WE HAVE A

LARGER NUMBER OF PEOPLE

DUMPED IN THE COVERAGE.

WE'LL HAVE A $2 TRILLION TAB

OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS FOR

THIS PART OF THE PROGRAM.

THAT'S WHY WE HAVE TO REPEAL

OBAMA CARE, BECAUSE OF WHAT

DR. SUMMER'S TALKED ABOUT.

Reporter: TONIGHT'S

AUDIENCE HEARD TWO

DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT PLANS

ON HOW TO REVITALIZE

AMERICA'S ECONOMY.

THERE IS ONE THING THESE

TITANS CAN AGREE ON: AMERICA

IS ON A FINANCIAL PATH IS IS

UNSUSTAINABLE, AND THE

STAKES HAVE NEVER BEEN

HIGHER.

Reporter: THIS IS THE

NINTH ANNUAL DEBATE.

HOW DID IT STACK UP AGAINST

THE OTHERS?

Pat: IN MY OPINION, IT

WAS THE BEST WE'VE EVER

HAD.

IT HAD MORE SUBSTANCE.

AND SIMPSON HAD HIS FINGER

RIGHT ON THE STATISTICS THAT

WERE VERY IMPORTANT.

KARL ROVE WAS JUST MASTERFUL

IN HIS GRASP OF THE ISSUES.

LARRY SUMMERS, OF COURSE,

FORMER SECRETARY OF THE

TREASURY, AND FORM ADVISOR

TO THE PRESIDENT, AND THE

MAN WHO WAS THE PRESS AIDE

TO BILL CLINTON.

IT WAS TOP-NOTCH PEOPLE.

AND THE MODERATE DID A

SUBURB JOB.

I THINK WHEN IT WAS

FINISHED, THERE WAS A GREAT

DEAL OF CIVILITY, AND IN MY

OPINION, THERE WAS MORE

COMMON GROUND THAN RANKER

AND DISAGREEMENT.

Terry: DID THEY SOLVE

AMERICA'S ECONOMIC CRISIS?

Pat: NO, BUT THEY'RE

GETTING CLOSE IF THEY LISTEN

TO HIM.

ALAN SIMPSON HAS GOT IT.

SOMETHING THAT WOULD DO THE

JOB.

BUT HE WAS VERY VEHEMENT

ABOUT HIS OPPOSITION TO THE

NATIONAL TAXPAYER UNION.

JUST SAID YOU CAN'T RAISE

ANY TAXES ON ANYTHING, AND

HE SAYS THERE HAS COME A

TIME WHEN WE HAVE TO FIX THE

TAX CODE.

AND THERE ARE TAXES THAT

HAVE TO -- AT LEAST

DEDUCTIONS THAT HAVE TO BE

TAKEN AWAY.

IT WAS A VERY INTELLIGENT

DEBATE, AND I CONGRATULATE

REGENT.

THIS IS SOMETHING I WAS

PRIVILEGED TO PUT IN WHEN I

WAS PRESIDENT OF THAT

INSTITUTION.

WE SORT OF SAID WE CAN'T

AFFORD A FOOTBALL TEAM, SO

WHAT CAN WE DO?

Terry: DEBATE.

Pat: DEBATE IS WHAT WE

DO.

IT IS PROBABLY BETTER THAN

FOOTBALL.

Reporter: MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS ARE URGING

PRESIDENT OBAMA TO CUT OFF

AID TO EGYPT BECAUSE OF

INCREASED PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS.

LAWMAKERS WANT TO SUSPEND A

BILLION DOLLARS IN AIDE

UNTIL THEY ARE FULLY

PROTECTED.

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM ADVOCATES

SAY EGYPTIAN CHRISTIANS ARE

FLEEING EGYPT IN DROVES TO

ESCAPE ATTACKS FROM ISLAMICS

IN GOVERNMENT FORCES.

THE U.S. SHOULD WARN EGYPT'S

LEADERS THEIR TRANSITION TO

DEMOCRACY IS DOOMED UNLESS

THEY GRANT CHRISTIANS FULL

AND EQUAL RIGHTS.

BACK-TO-BACK HURRICANES

ATTACKED THE PHILIPPINES.

MANY YEAR AREAS COULD NOT

RECEIVE AID BECAUSE OF

BRIDGES AND ROADS THAT WERE

WASHED AWAY.

CBN WENT TO HELP THE PEOPLE,

SOME OF WHOM HAVE NEVER SEEN

A REAL DOCTOR.

Reporter: A RURAL

PROVINCE IN THE PHILIPPINES

COULD BE CALLED THE GATEWAY

TO TYPHOONS BECAUSE THAT'S

WHERE THEY LAND.

A RECENT STORM WASHED AWAY A

MAJOR BRIDGE.

MAKING IT EXTREMELY

DIFFICULT TO BRING AID TO

AREAS.

DESPITE THIS, CBN TRAVELLED

FOR 16 HOURS IN ROUGH RAIN

TO BRING RELIEF TO VICTIMS

IN THE DISTANT TOWN OF

AURORA.

THE MEDICAL TEAM IS

SERVING MORE THAN 600

FAMILIES IN THIS POOL HALL.

THERE ARE A LOT OF OLD MEN

AND WOMEN, CHILDREN, AND A

LOT OF BABIES.

AND FOR SOME OF THEME, THIS

IS THE FIRST TIME THEY'VE

BEEN ATTENDED TO BY A REAL

FAMILY.

Reporter: LOPOG IS

GRATEFUL THAT HIS FAMILY CAN

GET MEDICAL CARE.

WE CANNOT CROSS THE

RIVERS.

I THANK GOD YOU CAME TO US.

I AM VERY THANKFUL THAT A

DOCTOR CAN CHECK OUR BABY.

THIS IS OUR FIRST TIME TO BE

VISITED BY REAL DOCTORS.

THANK YOU FOR THE

MEDICINES.

YOUR TIME SAVED OUR LIVES.

Reporter: HUMEDICA

PARTNERED WITH CBN TO GIVE

AID TO THE PEOPLE.

WE HAVE A LOT OF PARTNERS

ALL OVER THE WORLD, BUT

WORKING WITH CBN IS REALLY

EASY TO CARE, PROVIDING THE

BASIC FOUNDATION FOR OUR

WORKS AND WE CAN REALLY

FOCUS ON OUR MEDICAL

DISASTER AID.

THEY HAVE A REALLY GOOD

KNOWLEDGE ABOUT THE PEOPLE

WORKING HERE, AND WHAT THE

PEOPLE NEED.

AND ALSO THEY HAVE A -- LIKE

A CHURCH NETWORK.

A LOT OF PASTORS THAT ARE

COMMUNICATING TO THEM.

Reporter: CBN CARRIED

OUT DISASTER RELIEF

OPERATIONS AND MEDICAL

MISSIONS TO 20 OTHER

VILLAGES IN O IN AURORA,

DEMONSTRATING COMPASSION.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: THE APOSTLE

PAUL TELLS US TOP IN TATORS

OF CHRIST -- TO BE IMITATERS

OF CHRIST.

Pat: THIS IS WHAT WE DO

AT CBN, LADIES AND

GENTLEMEN.

AND "OPERATION BLESSING" AS

WELL.

THESE TWO THRUSTS ARE

JUST -- WE'RE HAPPENING

LITERALLY MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE.

IT IS NOT JUST A FEW, IT'S

NOT JUST A HANDFUL.

IT'S MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.

WE'RE SAVING LIVES AND

MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE

LIVES OF PEOPLE.

IT IS AMAZING WHEN THESE

THINGS HIT, IT ALMOST

INVARIABLY STRIKES THE

POOR.

THE DOWNTRODDEN.

THEY'RE HAVING A HARD TIME,

AND THEN A DISASTER COMES OR

AN EARTHQUAKE COMES, AND

WHAT LITTLE SHELTER THEY

HAVE GETS TORN DOWN AND

THEY'RE RIGHT UP AGAINST

DEATH.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

IN THE NAME OF JESUS, WE CAN

REACH OUT A HAND OF

COMPASSION, AND WE'RE DOING

IT.

EARTH'S POPULATION HAS

UNITED NATIONS CHOSE

HALLOWEEN TO SYMBOLIZE THAT

EVENT.

COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD

HAVE BEEN MARKING THE

WORLD.

STARTING WITH THE

PHILIPPINES.

THE U.N. ESTIMATES THE WORLD

MARK BY 2025.
