TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" AS

MORE ROCKETS REIGN DOWN, ISRAEL

STEPS UP.

THE LATEST ON THE UNREST IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

PLUS, REPUBLICANS AND

DEMOCRATS WILL WORK TOGETHER TO

FIND A SOLUTION, FISCAL CLIFF

GROWING AMONG AMERICANS.

WE'LL TAKE YOU ON A TOP

SECRET MISSION IN NORTH KOREA.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING

EVERYONE I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

FIGHTING BETWEEN ISRAEL AND

HAMAS COULD GET WORSE, ISRAEL IS

READY AFTER ANOTHER ROUND OF

MISSILES LAUNCHED TO TEL AVIV.

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAYS THEY

HAVE TO STOP THE ROCKETS.

TALK OF PEACE IS JUST TALK.

JULIE STALL HAS TONIGHT'S TOP

STORY FROM ISRAEL.

REPORTER: HAMAS INTENSIFIED

MISSILE BARRAGE AGAINST SOUTHERN

ISRAEL, MORE THAN 560 ROCKETS

HAVE SLAMMED INTO ISRAEL AND

ANOTHER 300 INTERCEPTED BY IRON

DOME.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THIS.

WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN IF WE

DIDN'T HAVE A SHELTER.

ISRAELI TARGETED 1350 TERROR

SITES IN THE LAST SIX DAYS IN

WHAT THE ARMY IS CALLING PILLAR

OF DEFENSE.

INCLUDING THE OFFICE OF THE

PRESIDENT, MINISTRY, POLICE

COMPOUND TRAINING CAMP.

PALESTINIAN SAY A BOMB KILLED

11 MEMBERS OF ONE FAMILY.

THE BAD PRESS AGAINST ISRAEL

ISN'T FAIR.

EVERY TIME SOMEBODY HOLDS UP

WE HOPE THEY AREN'T.

SOMEBODY NEEDS -- THIS IS A YEAR

AND A HALF, TWO YEARS, NOBODY IS

GETTING IN THE MIDDLE.

I WISH THE YELLING WOULD STOP AT

ISRAEL.

THEY ARE NOT TRYING TO DO

ANYTHING TO THE POPULATION.

IN JERUSALEM, HUNDREDS OF

ISRAELIS GATHERED AT THE WESTERN

WALL TO PRAY FOR THEIR NATION

AND PROTECTION.

THEY PRAYED PSALM 121 WHO HE

KEEPS ISRAEL NEITHER SLUMMERS

NOR SLEEPS.

A POSSIBLE GROUND DEFENSIVE.

SOME WESTERN LEADERS ARE WARNING

ISRAEL NOT TO SEND ISRAELI

SOLDIERS INTO GAZA.

ISRAEL EXPECTS THE WORLD TO

STAND BEHIND ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO

DEFEND THEMSELVES.

WE EXPECT OUR ALLIES TO USE

ALL DEFENSE.

JOINING US NOW TO TALK MORE

ABOUT ISRAEL'S BATTLE WITH HAMAS

IS CLIFF BAY, PRESIDENT OF THE

FOUNDATION OF DEFENSE OF

DEMOCRACIES.

CLIFF, LET ME ASK YOU WHY THIS

IS HAPPENING.

SEEMS FOOL HEART FOR HAMAS TO DO

THIS.

WHAT DO THEY HOPE TO GAIN?

VERY GOOD QUESTION AND HARD

QUESTION TO ANSWER.

AT BASE WE KNOW HAMAS IS TOTALLY

COMMITTED TO THE ANNIHILATION OF

ISRAEL, IT IS IN THE HAMAS

CHARTER.

THEY WILL NOT NEGOTIATE OR SEEK

PEACE OR SEEK A TWO-STATE

SOLUTION.

HAMAS HAS SAID SO AND IN THE

CHARTER.

WHY THEY ARE DOING THIS NOW IS

MYSTERIOUS AND WHY THEY ARE

ESCALATING.

THEY ARE USING LONGER RANGE

MISSILES, M-75S THEY HAVE GOTTEN

FROM IRAN WITH HELP FROM SUDAN

AND POSSIBLY THE EGYPTIANS HAVE

KNOWINGLY ALLOWED TEM TO BE

TRANSPORTED ACROSS THEIR SOIL.

BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE

CREDITABILITY AS A MILITANT

TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.

SECONDLY THEY ARE A SEPARATE

GOVERNMENT FROM WHAT IS IN THE

WEST BANK, YOU HAVE THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY AND ABBAS

IS GOING TO UNITED NATIONS TO

ASK FOR NON-STATE STATUS.

I BELIEF IT WAS THE ISRAELI

DEFENSE MINISTER SAYING THEY

EXPECT THE WORLD TO SUPPORT

ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO DEFEND ITSELF.

DO THE ISRAELI'S HAVE THE WORLD

SUPPORT?

I AM PLEASED TO SAY OF THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

PRESIDENT OBAMA SAID ISRAEL IS

BEING ATTACKED BY HUNDREDS OF

MISSILES AS YOU JUST SHOWED.

ANY NATION, INCLUDING ISRAEL HAS

A RIGHT TO DEFEND ITSELF WHEN IT

IS UNDER ATTACK.

WHAT YOU SEE IS NOT THAT.

THOSE NATIONS THAT DON'T BELIEVE

ISRAEL HAS A RIGHT TO EXIST

DON'T BELIEVE ISRAEL HAS A RIGHT

TO DEFEND ITSELF.

THERE ARE COUNTRIES THAT PURSUE

MORAL EQUIVALENCE.

ISRAEL RESPONDS, AND ISRAEL IS

TO BLAME.

IT IS TOO PREVALENT IN YUR AND

UNITED STATES. CLIFF,

WE'LL STAY IN CONTACT WITH YOU.

THANKS FOR BEING WITH US.

THANK YOU, LEE.

U.S. IS VIOLATING AN

AGREEMENT OVER CAPTION AND

HOLDING OF DETAINEES.

HAMID KARZAI SAYS THEY ARE STILL

BEING HELD BY FORCES.

COMMENTS COME DAYS AFTER THE

START OF NEGOTIATION AND

BILATERAL SECURITY AGREEMENT.

THAT AGREEMENT WILL DETERMINE

U.S. MILITARY PRESENCE IN

AFGHANISTAN AFTER TROOP

WITHDRAWAL IN 2014.

THIS IS JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF

PRESIDENT USING POPULOUS OPINION

IN TALKS WITH AMERICANS.

SOME MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WANT

TO KNOW WHO HELPED CREATE THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TALKING

POINTS ON THE DEADLY ATTACKS IN

LEBANON.

CIA CONCLUDED EARLY ON TERRORIST

WERE TO BLAME.

LAWMAKERS WANT TO KNOW WHO TOOK

IT OUT OF THE STATEMENTS.

U.N. AMBASSADOR SUSAN RICE KEPT

DESCRIBING IT AS A SPONTANEOUS

PROTEST SPARKED BY AN

ANTI-ISRAEL VIDEO.

CIA SIGNED OFF ON THE FINAL

TALKING POINTS.

REPUBLICANS QUESTION WHETHER THE

WHITE HOUSE TRIED TO COVER IT UP

AND HURT THE ELECTION.

NATIONAL SECURITY COUNCIL AND

WOULD HAVE KNOWN AND SHE COULD

HAVE COVERED THE STATE.

SHE LEFT A CLEAR IMPRESSION THIS

WAS A SPONTANEOUS DEMONSTRATION.

I BLAME THE PRESIDENT.

SUSAN RICE WAS A BIT PLAYER.

WAS HE INFORMED WHERE THEY BLEW

A HOLE 40 PEOPLE COULD GO

THROUGH, AUGUST 15TH CABLE WHERE

STEPHENS SAFE WE CAN'T

COORDINATE AN ATTACK?

I BLAME THE PRESIDENT.

SENATOR DIANE FEINSTEIN HEADS

THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE.

SHE DOESN'T BELIEVE THE WHITE

HOUSE ALTARED THE DOCUMENT FOR

POLITICAL REASONS.

BOTH SIDES SAY THERE IS A

GREATER WILLINGNESS TO

COMPROMISE.

MARK MARTIN HAS AN UPDATE ABOUT

TAXMAGEDDON.

REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRATS

AGREE ON AN OUTLINE FOR NEXT

YEAR.

THEY NEED TO PUT THE BRAKES ON

THE COUNTRY FALLING OVER THE

FISCAL CLIFF AT THE END OF THIS

YEAR, 600 BILLION DOLLAR

COMBINATION OF ACROSS THE BOARD

TAX INCREASES AND SPENDING CUTS

SET TO BEGIN IN JANUARY THAT

COULD SEND A FRAGILE ECONOMY

BACK INTO RECESSION.

TWO SIDES HAVE IDENTIFY THE TAX

REVENUE WE ARE WILLING TO

DISCUSS.

NOW IT IS TIME TO TALK ABOUT THE

SPENDING REDUCTIONS.

AGAIN IF WE PASS SOMETHING THAT

DOESN'T SOLVE THE PROBLEM, THEN

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE AS

IRRITATED IN THE FUTURE AS THEY

ARE RIGHT NOW.

JUST TO CLOSE LOOPHOLES, IT

IS FAR TOO LITTLE MONEY.

IT COULD BE, THEY HAVE SAID THEY

WANT IT TO BE REVENUE NEUTRAL.

THE PRESIDENT IS VERY CLEAR THE

HIGHER INCOME PEOPLE HAVE TO PAY

THEIR FAIR SHARE.

AMERICANS ARE SKEPTICAL.

BUSINESS OWNERS AND INVESTORS

ARE SHIELDING THEMSELVES FROM

POSSIBLE HIGHER TAXES NEXT YEAR.

MANY INVESTORS ARE SHEDDING

INVESTMENTS CONTRIBUTING TO

RECENT SELL OFFS OF APPLE AND

AMAZON.

BOBBY JINDAL SAYS IT IS CRUCIAL.

I WAS IN CONGRESS, I

GUARANTEE, IF THEY PUT A

BAND-AID ON THIS, WE'LL BE AT

ANOTHER FISCAL CLIFF CLIFF.

WE NEED STRUCTURE CHANGES, A

SUPERMAJORITY VOTE.

NEW HAMPSHIRE SENATOR TELLLI

AYOT SAID POWER SHARING IS AN

OPPORTUNITY NOT AN OBSTACLE AND

GETTING OUR FISCAL CLIFF HOUSE

IN ORDER IS WHERE WE NEED TO

START.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

SOME OF THE FISCAL CLIFF

SOLUTIONS COULD DECREASE

DONATIONS TO CHARITIES.

THEY ARE SENDING LETTERS TO

OBAMA AND LAWMAKERS URGING THEM

TO PROTECT THE TAX DEDUCTION.

WHITE HOUSE HAS PROPOSED CAPPING

AT 28% AND BIPARTISAN DEBT

REPLACING IT WITH A TAX CREDIT.

STUDY BY DUNHAM AND COMPANY

SHOWS MOST AMERICANS FAVOR THE

CHA

CHARITABLE DONATION AND WOULD

DONATE LESS IF IT WAS

ELIMINATED.

COURT INITIALLY QUESTIONS IF

TINDALE HOUSE WAS RELIGION

ENOUGH.

IT IS A THIRD RULING NATIONWIDE

AGAINST OBAMA CARE PROVISION.

CITY OF SANT' MONICA,

CALIFORNIA DROPPING THE NATIVITY

SCENE.

THEY ALLOWED IT IN THE PARK FOR

MANY YEARS.

ATHEIST SET UP NON-RELIGIOUS

DISPLAYS.

THAT ANGERED THE COMMUNITY.

CHURCHES USED TO SET UP NATIVITY

SCENE HAVE SUED IN FEDERAL COURT

CITING FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

WHY GUN ENTHUSISTS ARE

STOCKING UP AFTER THE

PRESIDENT'S RE-ELECTION.

YOU MAY REMEMBER DURING THE

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES, PRESIDENT

OBAMA SAID HE WOULD CONSIDER

TRYING TO GET A BAN ON ASSAULT

WEAPONS REINTRODUCED.

GUN SALES ARE UP DRIVEN BY

FEARS OF TIGHTER REGULATIONS.

DALE HURD HAS THAT STORY.

REPORTER: NATION'S GUN SALE

IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA PACKED.

GUNS AND AMMO SELLING OUT.

ON THIS TABLE, ALL LEFT WERE A

FEW T-SHIRTS.

MANY, MANY PEOPLE HERE BUYING

GUNS THAN BEFORE.

ANNETTE RUNS THIS WITH HER

FAMILY.

SHE THINKS THE BIGGEST REASON

PEOPLE ARE STOCKING UP IS

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND FEAR OF GUN

BAN.

PEOPLE ARE FEARFUL, BEFORE HE

WAS PRESIDENT, HE SAID A LOT OF

ANTI-GUN THINGS.

NOT EVERYBODY AGREES.

THIS PRESIDENT HAS DONE NEXT

TO NOTHING.

THIS BUYER HAPPY TO GO

THROUGH A GUN CHECK AND WISHED

OTHERS WENT THROUGH OTHER

PRECAUTIONS.

AS FAR AS DEADLY ASSAULT

RIFLES AND YOU CAN TURN AROUND

AND SELL THEM TO ANYONE YOU WANT

AT ANY TIME, THAT IS ASKING FOR

TROUBLE.

AMERICANS ARE BUILDING

ARSENALS OF KNIVES,

COLLECTIBLES, HUNTING RIFLES

EVEN MACHINE GUNS.

I DON'T THINK THERE IS A

LARGE CHARGE OF CIVIL UNREST, OR

A FIRE IN YOUR KITCHEN, BUT MOST

HAVE A FIRE EXTINGISHER IN THEIR

KITCHEN.

175 PEOPLE THIS WEEKEND

ALONE.

EVENT ORGANIZERS HAVE SEEN

INCREASE OF WOMEN BUYING GUNS.

YOU THINK WOMEN WOULD BE

AFRAID OF ROBBERY OR ASSAULT,

SINCE 9/11 WE HAVE SEEN AN

INCREASE.

AN ARIAL OFFENSIVE REACHING

PEOPLE IN NORTH KOREA, THE

UNIQUE METHOD USED TO SPREAD THE

GOSPEL.

PRESIDENT OBAMA ENDING A TOUR

OF SOUTHEAST ASIA WITH A

HISTORICAL STOP IN CAMBODIA.

THE WHITE HOUSE MADE IT CLEAR

THE PRESIDENT'S VISIT IS NOT AN

ENDORSEMENT OF CAMBODIA'S PRIME

MINISTER WHO IS CRITICIZED FOR

AUTHORITARIAN RULE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA VOICED HIS

CONCERNS OVER HUMANING RIGHTS IN

THE COUNTRY.

NORTH KOREA IS CONSIDERED ONE OF

THE WORLD'S WORST OFFENDERS.

CHRISTIANS, THEIR FAITH COULD

MEAN DEATH.

ONE GROUP IS TAKING OFFENSIVE

WITH AN ARIAL OFFENSIVE.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER: JUST BEFORE SUNSET,

A VAN LOAD OF CHRISTIANS FROM

SEOUL HEADS NORTH.

WE CAN'T SHOW YOU THEIR FACES OR

REVEAL THEIR NAMES.

WHAT WE ARE DOING COULD GET

US INTO TROUBLE.

WHERE ARE WE GOING TODAY?

WE ARE GOING HERE, SOME FOUR

MILES FROM NORTH KOREA BORDER

AND CLOSE TO THE ZONE.

DMZ IS ONE OF THE MOST HEAVILY

FORTIFIED AND POTENTIALLY

DANGEROUS PLACES ON EARTH.

WE'LL WAIT AT THE TOP OF THE

STAIRS, SIR.

ONE MILLION TROOPS STAND

READY.

SOUTH HAS JUST AS MANY.

ONE FACTOR THAT COULD RUIN

THIS WHOLE THING IS THE WEATHER.

IT COULD MESS UP THE MISSION.

PETER HAS DUBBED THIS

OPERATION DANDILION.

WE STARTED THIS PROJECT BACK

IN 1991.

JUST AS A DANDILION NEEDS THE

WIND TO SPREAD SEEDS, WE NEED

THE WIND TO SPREAD THE WORD.

ALL THROUGH THESE BRIGHT

ORANGE BALLOONS.

IT IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY

TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL.

TEAM WORKS QUICKLY ALL THE

TIME KEEPING TAGS ON THE WIND

DIRECTION.

PRAYERS ARE WHISPERED OVER EACH

BALLOON.

THEN THE RELEASE.

FEW MINUTES LATER, BALLOONS

BEGIN THEIR SLOW DRIFT ACROSS

NORTH KOREAN AIR SPACE.

WE LED OUR NORTH KOREAN

BROTHERS AND SISTERS KNOW WE ARE

PRAYING FOR THEM.

THE SCRIPTURES ARE MEANT TO

ENCOURAGE THEM.

IT BEGINS AT THIS UNDISCLOSED

LOCATION IN SEOUL.

EVERY YEAR THIS MAN HAS BEEN

PREPARING EACH BALLOON INTO

NORTH KOREA.

I WAS BORN TO NORTH KOREA.

THIS IS THE WAY TO GET THE BIBLE

BACK TO MY COUNTRYMEN.

FINAL TOUCHES TO THIS BALLOON

OPERATION.

THEY HAVE A HOLE THEY FILL

HELIUM IN, PUT TAPE AROUND IT

AND UP IT GOES INTO THE SKIES OF

NORTH KOREA.

THE HELIUM WILL LEAK AND WHEN

SOMEBODY PICKS IT UP, THEY WILL

READ ALL 16 CHAPTERS OF THE BOOK

OF MARK.

PETER USED THEM TO LAUNCH

THIS FROM THE SEA.

THEY CONTAIN A SMALL RADIO,

BIBLE AND OTHER CHRISTIAN

LITERATURE.

PETER'S GROUP ORGANIZES A WEEKLY

RADIO BROADCAST TRANSLATED IN

SEOUL AND INTO NORTH KOREA.

IT IS LIKE A REGULAR CHURCH

SERVICE AND WORSHIP AND

PREACHING OF THE WORD.

THEY TRY TO JAM OUR SIGNALS.

CBN NEWS OBTAINED SECRET

UNDERGROUND CHURCH MEETINGS

INSIDE NORTH KOREA.

WHEN A NORTH KOREAN ACCEPTS

JESUS CHRIST, HE OR SHE FACES

PERSECUTION AND POSSIBLY DEATH.

PETER GAVE CBN NEWS, THE

EXECUTION OF NORTH KOREAN

CHRISTIANS.

TRYING TO GET PRECISE FIGURES ON

THE NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS IN

NORTH KOREA IS DIFFICULT.

BASED ON DATA GATHERED AND

INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS

GROUPS, WE ESTIMATE

APPROXIMATELY 30,000 PRISONS

HELD IN POLITICAL CAMPS AND

10,000 BELIEVERS IN HIDING

THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.

BACK ALONG A STRETCH OF NORTH

KOREAN, SOUTH KOREAN BORDER,

USING THE COVER OF DARKNESS,

PETER'S TEAM DEPLOYS HUNDREDS OF

BALLOONS AT MULTIPLE LOCATIONS.

TODAY THE WIND CONDITIONS HAVE

BEEN GOOD.

OFTEN THE WINDS CHANGE.

WE HAVE TO WAIT.

WE COME BACK THE NEXT DAY.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY UNTIL

NORTH KOREA IS FREE AND

CHRISTIANS CAN WORSHIP JESUS

CHRIST WITHOUT FEAR.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS, SOME

WHERE, NEAR THE NORTH KOREAN

BORDER.

UP NEXT, MISSING MONEY FOUND

AND RETURNED.

ONE WOMAN'S STORY OF DOING THE

RIGHT THING.

FINALLY IT WAS A DISCOVERY

THAT COULD HAVE HELPED ONE

MASSACHUSETTS WOMAN WITH HOLIDAY

SHOPPING.

IN THE END CHERYL GABOZZI DID

THE RIGHT THING.

I SAW A ROLL OF MONEY.

CHERYL WAS SHOPPING AT A

LOCAL MARSHAL'S STORE.

INSIDE SHE DISCOVERED MORE THAN

SHE BARGAINED FOR, $11,000 MORE.

SHE CAME INTO THE STATION,

TURNED INTO THE BAG.

GLAD HE CAN HAVE A HAPPY

FAMILY.

HE WAS GOING TO HAVE TO SELL HIS

CAR.

GIVES YOU FAITH.

MONEY WAS REPORTED MISSING.

A MAN COLLECTED IT IN CHURCH.

THE MONEY WILL GO TO BUILD A

CHURCH IN GUATEMALA.

PRAISE THE LORD.

ESPECIALLY THIS TIME OF YEAR.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN TEMPTING.

SHE WAS BLESSED AS A RESULT I

AM SURE. AMEN.
