SENTIMENT IN THE WORLD.

JOHN WAAGE EXPLAINS IN TONIGHT'S

TOP STORY.

REPORTER: AS RIOTS CONTINUE

TO ERUPT, THE TRANSFORMATION

FROM SO-CALLED ARAB SPRING TO

UGLY MUSLIM WINTER IS DROPPING

IN INFLUENCE AROUND MUCH OF THE

GLOBE.

MOST RECENT SERIOUS GLOBE,

PRE-PLANNED ACTED OF TERROR THAT

RESULTED IN U.S. AMBASSADOR TO

LIBYA WAS BLAMED BY WHITE HOUSE

SPOKESMAN JAY CARNEY. WE

WERE NOT AWARE OF AN ATTACK WAS

PLANNED OR IMMINENT.

IT TOOK MORE THAN A WEEK FOR

THE WHITE HOUSE TO ADMIT IT WAS

PLANNED.

WHAT HAPPENED IN BENGHAZI WAS

A TERRORIST ATTACK, WE WILL NOT

REST UNTIL WE HAVE BROUGHT TO

JUSTICE, THE TERRORIST WHO

MURDERED FOUR AMERICANS.

MEANWHILE THE PERSIAN GULF --

IRAN FLAUNTS NUCLEAR PROGRESS.

ISRAEL'S PRIME MINISTER,

NETANYAHU WON'T GET A MEETING

PERHAPS BECAUSE OF HIS REPEATED

WARNINGS THAT THEY WON'T

TOLERATE IT.

JOHN WAAGE, CBN NEWS.

JOINING US NOW IS TOM DOYLE.

TOM IS VICE PRESIDENT OF E 3

PARTNERS AND AUTHOR OF THIS NEW

BOOK CALLED DREAMS AND VISIONS.

TOM, IN YOUR OPINION, ARE EITHER

OF THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

TALKING ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON

IN FOREIGN POLICY IN THE MIDDLE

EAST?

I DON'T THINK SO.

ISRAEL IS FACING A CRISIS, THEY

HAVEN'T FACED SINCE 1967, THE

SIX-DAY WAR.

THIS IS AN ISSUE LARGELY

IGNORED.

YOU TRAVEL A LOT THROUGHOUT

THE MIDDLE EAST, YOU HEARD THE

EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT MORSI SAY IT

IS VITAL THAT THIS U.S. RESPECT

THE ARAB WORLD.

IT DOESN'T SURPRISE ME

BECAUSE OF THE TAHRIR SQUARE.

WE HAVE HEARD BIBLES BURNED AND

SPIT ON THEM.

YOU HEAR NOTHING ABOUT THAT.

ARAB SPRING IS TURNING TO THE

ARAB WINTER.

WE DIDN'T SEE IT COMING.

WE KNOW THERE IS A LOT OF RES

LESTNESS.

WERE YOU HOPEFUL IT WOULD

BRING ABOUT DEMOCRACY?

A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE.

THEY THOUGHT IT WOULD.

THERE WAS GOOD HEARTED MODERATE

MUSLIMS, CHRISTIANS SAYING THEY

HOPED SOMETHING GOOD WOULD

HAPPEN.

YOU HAVE WRITTEN THE BOOK

DREAMS AND VISIONS.

IS JESUS' AWAKENING THE MUSLIM

WORLD?

YES.

MORE MUSLIMS HAVE COME TO FAITH

IN CHRIST IN THE LAST 10 YEARS

THAN THE LAST 14 CENTURY.

WE ARE FINDING 50 PERCENT OF

MUSLIMS WE MEET THAT ARE JESUS

FOLLOWERS SAY IT STARTED WITH A

DREAM.

GIVE US AN EXAMPLE.

A YOUNG WOMAN THAT LIVED IN

THE WEST BANK.

SHE HAS JESUS DREAMS.

NOBODY IN HER VILLAGE THAT WAS A

BELIEVER.

SHE WAS ASKING JESUS WHAT DOES

THIS MEAN?

NEXT DREAM WAS A HOUSE.

SHE SAW THIS HOUSE.

IT WAS VERY DISTINCT.

SHE TALKED TO HER FRIEND AND

SAID HOW DO I GET TO THIS HOUSE.

HAVE YOU SEEN IT.

SHE SAID IT WAS IN THE NEXT

VILLAGE.

A MAN SAID COULD I HELP YOU?

SHE SAID A HAD A DREAM ABOUT

THIS HOUSE.

HE INVITED HER INSIDE AND LED

HER TO CHRIST. WE DON'T TALK

MUCH ABOUT ISRAELIS AND JEWS TO

CHRIST, SHOULD WE FOCUS ON THAT?

MANY JEWS THAT HAVE

QUESTIONS.

A LOT OF TEAMS THAT GO INTO

ISRAEL.

WE HAVE SECULAR JEWS AND EVEN

RELIGIOUS JEWS.

TOM DOYLE, THANKS FOR BEING

WITH US.

BOOK IS "DREAMS AND VISIONS."

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

THANK YOU.

WORLD LEADERS GATHERED AT THE

U.N. GENERAL ASSEMBLY.

ANNUAL MEETING COMES AS WAR

WAGES IN SYRIA, TENSIONS RUN

BETWEEN IRAN AND ISRAEL.

U.N. SECRETARY GENERAL BONN KEY

MOON WARNED MAHMOUD AHMADENIJAD

NOT TO GET INVOLVED IN THREATS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA ADDRESSED THE

ASSEMBLY TUESDAY AND IS PLANNED

TO DISCUSS THE ANTI-MUSLIM

PROTEST IN THE WORLD.

AFTER DISTURBING REPORTS

CLAIMING A GROUP IS FUNDING AN

ISLAMIC TERRORIST GROUP IN

NIGERIA.

PETER WOODING HAS MORE.

A BRITISH CHARITY IS BEING

ACCUSED TO HELPING TO FUND A

MILITANT ISLAMIC GROUP IN

NIGERIA.

BOKO HARAM HAS TARGETED CHURCHES

AND CHRISTIANS AS IT SEEMS TO

SPREAD TERROR ACROSS THE

COUNTRY.

RECENT REPORTS THAT MONEY RAISED

BY THE TRUST FUND FOUND ITS WAY

TO BOKO HARAM HAS CAUSED CONCERN

IN THE UK.

THEY DECIDED TO REPORT THE

MATTER TO THE METROPOLITAN

POLICE AND ALSO THE CHARITY

COMMISSION TO INVESTIGATE THOSE

ALLEGATIONS.

THE FACT THAT BOKO HARAM IS

RESPONSIBILITY FOR HUNDREDS OF

MURDERS THIS YEAR MAKES IT AN

ISSUE OF INTERNATIONALAL

CONCERN.

THEY HAVE BEEN TARGETING

PASTORS AND PRIESTS.

SO CHURCHES, PROTESTANTS AND

CATHOLICS HAVE BEEN DECIMATED

AND MANY INNOCENT LIVES HAVE

BEEN TARGETED.

THEY RAISE MONEY FOR DISASTER

PROJECTS IN AFRICA.

OVER THE LAST 25 YEARS, WE

HAVE WORKED HARD IN THE POOREST

REGIONS OF AFRICA, PROVIDING EYE

CLINICS AND DIGGING WELLS ALL

ACROSS THE CONTINENT.

THE CHARITY DENIES ANY LINKS

TO TERRORIST GROUPS.

WE DENOUNCE VIOLENCE AND

EXTREMISM IN ALL OF ITS FORMS.

NIGERIA PASTOR OF LONDON BASE

CHRISTIAN CONCERN SAYS WHATEVER

COMES TO LIGHT ON THIS MATTER,

HE HOPES IT WILL HIGHLIGHT THE

PLIGHT IN HIS HOMELAND.

AMOUNT OF INFLUENCE THAT THE

INTERNATIONALAL COMMUNITY SUCH

AS THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT HAS ON

THESE ISSUES, I MEAN IT IS HUGE

FOR THOSE THAT ARE ON THE FRONT

LINE.

THEY ARE VOICELESS.

FORGOTTEN.

THEY HAVE CALLED FOR ALL

CHRISTIANS TO PRAY AND ACT, TO

PREVENT ANY RESOURCES GOING TO

BOKO HARAM.

CHRISTIANS SHOULD CONTACT

MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT AND

CONGRESS AND WHAT IS BEING DONE

BY THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT TO

LIST BOKO HARAM AS A PROSCRIBED

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION AND

INSURE NO SUPPORT GOES TO THE

ORGANIZATION TO CARRY ON THE

CAMPAIGN OF VIOLENCE.

NEW STUDY CALLED A GIANT STEP

FORWARD IN UNDERSTANDING THE

ROOT OF BREAST CANCER.

THE GENETICS BASED STUDY USES

BREAST CANCER TUMORS.

THERE ARE FOUR MAJOR TYPES AND

ALL RESPOND TO DIFFERENT

TREATMENTS.

SCIENTISTS SAY THIS

DISCOVER WHICH DRUGS WORK BEST

FOR EACH SPECIFIC TYPE OF TUMOR.

IT COULD TAKE YEARS TO LEARN HOW

TO USE THIS NEW KNOWLEDGE TO

TREAT BREAST CANCER.

GIVING AWAY A CAMPUS, WHY ONE

CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY HAS A NEW

PLACE TO CALL HOME.

CHRISTIAN OWNERS OF A

HISTORIC CAMPUS IN WESTERN

MASSACHUSETTS HAVE GIVEN IT AWAY

FREE OF CHARGE.

CAMPUS FOUNDED BY D.L. MOODY.

SINCE 2009, THE GREEN FAMILY

OWNED IT ALSO OWN HOBBY LOBBY.

THE FAMILY ANNOUNCED THEY HAVE

GIVEN THE CAMPUS TO GRAND CANYON

UNIVERSITY.

GRAND CANYON IS A CHRISTIAN

SCHOOL BASED IN ARIZONA.

PRESIDENT STEVE GREEN SAYS GRAND

CANYON'S STRENGTH, GROWTH AND

VIBRANT CHRISTIAN LIFE MADE IT A

GREAT FIT.

THE IDEA TO HONOR THAT

TRADITION AND IMPACT THIS WORLD

WITH A CHRISTIAN PURPOSE IS WHAT

WE WERE HOPING TO DO.

WE BELIEVE GRAND CANYON

UNIVERSITY WOULD BE ABLE TO DO

THAT.

WE WERE VERY HUMBLED.

IT IS AN OPPORTUNITY.

ALSO IT IS GOING TO BE A

CHALLENGE.

A LOT OF WORK TO DO.

CAMPUS ONCE HOUSED THE PREP

SCHOOL FOUNDED BY MOODY IN 1879.

GRAND CANYON EXPECTS TO SPEND

150 MILLION DOLLARS ON

INFRASTRUCTURE WITH THE GOAL OF

STUDENTS ARRIVING IN THE FALL OF

2014.

GAS PRICES DOWN IN THE LAST

FEW WEEKS.

NOT ENOUGH.

THE PRICE OF A GALLON OF GAS

DROPPED LESS THAN A PENNY.

ENDS THE LAST NINE WEEKS.

A SURVEY INDICATED THE AVERAGE

PRICE OF REGULAR GRADE IS $3.83.

IT COMES AS CRUDE OIL PRICE HAS

DROPPED SIGNS THAT SAUDI ARABIA

IS INCREASING SUPPLY.

CENTRAL WASHINGTON, THOUSANDS

OF FIREFIGHTERS HAVE BEEN

WORKING FOR WEEKS TO SAVE HOMES

AND TOWNS.

EVACUATION ORDERS ARE FAR TOO

OFTEN AN OCCURRENCE TO EVACUATE.

I HAVE A CHILD THAT HAS POST

TRAUMATIC STRESS FROM

EVACUATION.

THEY FACE THE HEALTH THREAT.

AIR QUALITY WARNINGS IN EFFECT

FOR WASHINGTON, AND OHIO AND AS

FAR AS WAY AS COLORADO.

UP NEXT, FEDERAL PRISON IN

FORTH WORTH, THE EXTREME CASE

THAT LEFT AN ORDINARY GARDENER

BEHIND BARS.

WELCOME BACK.

GEORGE NORRIS WAS DOING WHAT HE

LOVED WHEN SUDDENLY FEDERAL

AGENTS SWARMED HIS HOME IN A

TERRIFYING RAID.

SOME SAY IT IS ONE EXAMPLE OF

GOVERNMENT OVERREACH.

JOHN JESSUP HAS THE LATEST

SERIES, A NATION OF CRIMINALS.

GEORGE AND KATHY NORRIS ENJOY

A QUIET LIFE AT HOME JUST

OUTSIDE HOUSTON.

ON MOST DAYS YOU CAN FIND GEORGE

PUTTING HIS GREEN THUMB TO WORK

IN THE BACKYARD.

THIS IS YOUR OASIS, IT REALLY

IS.

WHAT STARTED OUT AS A HOBBY

TURNED INTO BUSINESS.

AFTER RETIREMENT GEORGE BEGAN A

NURSERY PICKING UP CUSTOMERS

AROUND THE COUNTRY.

THREE PICK UP TRUCKS FILLED WITH

ARMED FEDERAL AGENTS PULLED INTO

HIS DRIVEWAY. THEY WERE

WEARING BLACK VESTS AND I

THOUGHT I BETTER OPEN THE DOOR.

THE FIRST GUY TOOK HIS ELBOW

UNDER MY NECK AND PINNED ME

AGAINST THE WALL.

GEORGE SAYS THAT SEARCHED THE

HOUSE AND TOOK 37 BOXES OF

COUPLE'S BELONGINGS AND

COMPUTER.

THEY TOOK MY PLANT LIST.

THEY COULDN'T CONDUCT BUSINESS

WITHOUT SOME PAPERWORK.

THEY PUT ME OUT OF BUSINESS.

GEORGE SAYS IT TOOK THREE

MONTHS FOR HIM TO FIND OUT WHY

HE WAS A TARGET OF A FEDERAL

INVESTIGATION.

NEARING 70 AT THE TIME THIS

TEXAS GRANDFATHER FOUND HIMSELF

FACING TIME FOR SELLING FLOWERS

SPECIFYINGLY THIS ORCHID.

THEY CHARGED GEORGE WITH

MULTIPLE COUNTS ALLEGINGLY HE

KNOWINGLY PROTECTED A PLANT

SPECIES.

GOVERNMENT POINTED TO A SERIES

OF LETTERS BETWEEN GEORGE AND

PERUVIAN SUPPLIER.

THEY WOULD SAY HOW BAD I WAS

SELLING MY ORCHIDS AT HIGH

PRICES.

GEORGE BLAMES HIS LEGAL

TROUBLE ON A CLERICAL MISTAKE.

THE FLOWERS WERE LEGALLY GROWN

IN A GREEN HOUSE NOT TAKEN FROM

THE WILD.

HE PLEADED GUILTY TO SEVEN COULD

UNDERSTAND OF VIOLATING THE

ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT.

GEORGE RAN OUT OF MONEY AFTER

REMORTGAGING THE HOUSE AND

SPENDING THEIR ENTIRE LIFE

SAVINGS ON LAWYERS.

THAT WAS THE WORST PART OF

IT, TO SAY I AM GUILTY.

I AM TELLING THEM I WAS GUILTY

OF THINGS I WASN'T GUILTY OF.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY CHOICE.

GEORGE SERVED HIS SENTENCE AT

A FEDERAL FACILITY IN FORT

WORTH.

EVERY WEEKEND HIS WIFE DROVE

THERE.

GEORGE'S HEALTH PHYSICALLY AND

EMOTIONALLY ON THE DECLINE.

THE HUSBAND THAT WENT IN THERE

DIDN'T COME BACK THE HUSBAND I

STARTED WITH.

NOT ONLY DID HE LOSE HIMSELF,

BUT I LOST HIM, TOO. KATHY

SAYS GEORGE'S DIABETES, EYE

SIGHT AND HEART CONDITION

WORSENED.

GEORGE'S AGE AND CRIME SHOULD

HAVE BEEN FACTORS AGAINST HIS

DOING TIME. TO WHATEVER

MEASURE THAT INDIVIDUAL DID

SOMETHING WRONG WITH THEIR

PAPERWORK WHETHER IT WAS

DELIBERATE, HE IS NOT A THREAT

TO SOCIETY WHERE I NEED TO BE

SPENDING MY TAX DOLLARS TO

INVEST IN HIS FOOD AND AIR

CONDITIONING AND TELEVISION AND

HIS REMOVAL FROM SOCIETY.

LEGAL EXPERTS POINT TO CASES

LIKE GEORGES TO HIGHLIGHT A

GROWING BODY OF LAW THEY SAY

MAKES AMERICA A NATION OF

CRIMINALS.

CRITICS BELIEVE CONGRESSS

WRITE SO MANY LAWS, IT BECOMES

TOO EASY TO VIOLATE ONE. ALL

OF A SUDDEN THINGS THAT ARE

CIVIL ACTION ARE CRIMINAL

ACTION.

? GEORGE IS EXERCISING HIS

RIGHT TO SPEAK OUT.

HE AND KATHY TRAVELED TO

WASHINGTON TO TESTIFY ABOUT

THEIR DEAL.

IT MATTERS TO US THAT WE SAY

WHAT HAPPENED.

THE WIFE THAT SAYS SHE HAS

LOST A PART OF HER HUSBAND

PROVES THEIR SITUATION THEY LOST

MORE.

THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN I

HAVE LOST.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO HELP GET IT

BACK.

THEY HAVE TRIED TO MOVE ON

AND LEAVING THE ORCHID BUSINESS

ALL TOGETHER.

GEORGE CARRIES THE FEELINGS THAT

IT COULD HAPPEN AGAIN. I

STOPPED DRIVING BECAUSE I WOULD

WORRY I WOULD HAVE AN ACCIDENT

AND LEAD TO A TRAIL BACK TO

PRISON COST US $110,000 THE

FIRST TIME.
