TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" HILARY

CLINTON HEADS TO THE MIDDLE EAST

THE LATEST ON THE CONFLICT

BETWEEN ISRAELIS AND HAMAS.

PLUS HOW THE ISSUE OF

IMMIGRATION REFORM IS DIVIDING

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AFTER THIS

YEAR'S ELECTION.

AND PULLING THE PLUG ON A

CHRISTMAS TRADITION.

WHY ONE CALIFORNIA CITY WILL NO

LONGER DISPLAY A NATIVITY SCENE.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." A POSSIBLE BREAK

THROUGH TONIGHT IN ISRAELI-HAMAS

CONFLICT.

GOOD EVENING I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

A SEIZE FIRE COULD COME AS SOON

AS TONIGHT.

DIPLOMATIC TALKS HAVE BEEN

UNDERWAY.

ISRAEL INTENSIFIED THE ATTACKS

ON WHAT SOME ARE CALLING THE

LATEST BURST OF VIOLENCE.

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU SAYS HIS COUNTRY WOULD

BE A WILLING PARTNER TO SUCH AN

AGREEMENT, HILARY CLINTON HEADS

TO THE REGION TO HELP USHER IN A

DEAL.

CURRENT CEASE FIRE TALKS TAKING

PLACE IN EGYPT.

ISRAELI MEDIA REPORTING DEFENSE

MINISTER EHUD BARACK THAT ISRAEL

WANTED A 24 HOUR TEST PERIOD OF

NO ROCKET FIRE TO SEE IF HAMAS

COULD ENFORCE A TRUCE.

JOHN WAAGE HAS SPENT YEARS

COVERING THE MIDDLE EAST FROM

OUR JERUSALEM BUREAU, JOHN, THAT

IS THE MILLION DOLLAR QUESTION,

CAN HAMAS ENFORCE A PIECE

AGREEMENT?

YES, I WONDER IF BARACK SAID

COULD OR WOULD ENFORCE.

I THINK ISRAEL REPEATEDLY SAID

THEY HOLD HAMAS RESPONSIBLE

LARGELY BECAUSE HAMAS CONTROLS

THE AREA AREA AND COULD CONTROL

ISLAMIC JIHAD.

THEY ARE WAITING TO SEE IF HAMAS

WILL REIGN IN THE ROCKETS.

IT IS STILL VERY IFY AS OF THIS

HOUR.

A MISSILE HIT CLOSE TO TEL

AV

AVIV, CLOSE TO BEN GEERN

AIRPORT.

IT IS UNACCEPTABLE AS FAR AS

THE ISRAELI MILITARY.

IT IS THE FOJER ROCKETS THAT ARE

REACHING FURTHER INTO ISRAEL

THAN ANY OTHERS HAVE REACHED:

CLOSER THAN IN 2006.

WHEN YOU GET TO REESIONE, YOU

ARE TALKING ABOUT THE HEART OF

THE ISRAELI POPULATION.

IT IS NOT GOING TO WORK TO BE SO

CLOSE TO THE AIRPORT WHERE THE

SECRETARY FLEW IN TODAY.

ISRAEL CAN'T PUT UP WITH THAT.

THAT IS WHY YOU SEE THEM TRY TO

KNOCK OUT ROCKET LAUNCHERS.

ISRAEL HAS BEEN VERY CAREFUL

ABOUT NOT HITTING CIVILIANS IN

GAZA, HAS HAMAS?

RIGHT.

HAMAS HIDES BEHIND THEIR

CIVILIANS.

THEY PUT ROCKET LAUNCHERS WHERE

CHILDREN AND HOSPITALS ARE.

ISRAEL'S SOLDIERS ARE NOT

ALLOWED TO FIRE ON CIVILIAN

POPULATIONS IF THEY CAN POSSIBLY

AVOID IT.

ISRAEL IS OPERATING ON STRICT

GUIDELINES.

THEY DON'T GET CREDIT IN THE

WORLDWIDE PRESS. JOHNS,

WHAT IS YOUR BEST PREDICTION?

I THINK WE ARE GOING TO GET A

CEASE FIRE.

IT IS NOT GOING TO END, WENDY.

ISRAEL'S FOREIGN MINISTER SAID

WE WILL NOT AS THIS GOVERNMENT

WITH TWO MONTHS LEFT UNTIL

ELECTIONS, WE WILL NOT TAKE A

GROUND OPERATION INTO EFFECT

RIGHT NOW.

THAT IS A JOB FOR IF NEXT

GOVERNMENT.

WAS HE SPEAKING FOR THE PRIME

MINISTER?

I DON'T KNOW.

ISRAEL WANTS A CEASE FIRE, TOO.

HAMAS WILL TOO.

IF YOU GO BACK TO HAVING BIGGER

ROCKETS BUILT, ISRAEL IS GOING

TO HAVE TO LAUNCH A GROUND

OPERATION UNLESS HAMAS CHANGES

THEIR TUNE.

JOHN WAAGE, WE APPRECIATE

YOUR INSIGHTS.

LEE?

HUNDREDS OF MISSILES HAVE

BEEN FIRED INTO ISRAEL DURING

THIS WEEK LONG CONFLICT.

THE COUNTRY'S IRON DOME DEFENSE

SYSTEM HAS PROVEN A VALUABLE

ASSET.

JULIE STALL HAS MORE.

INTERCEPTING SOME 350 ROCKETS

THAT WOULD LIKELY HAVE HIT

POPULATED AREAS.

MAJOR SHALLICAR SAID THE

SITUATION WOULD HAVE BEEN CRAZY

WITHOUT IT.

PEOPLE ARE SCARED.

YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT HALF OF

ISRAEL UNDER TERRORIST THREATS.

THE BIG CENSUS, THIS IS

UNIMAGINABLE, 150 MILLION

AMERICANS WOULD BE UNDER THREAT.

SYSTEM 80-90% EFFECTIVE IN

SHOOTING DOWN ROCKETS.

SOME ARE GETTING THROUGH

INCLUDING THIS ONE THAT HIT A

SCHOOL IN ASHGALON.

THIS WAS A DECISION MADE BY

THE COMMAND IN ORDER TO MAKE

SURE PEOPLE DON'T GET HIT.

CHILDREN WHOSE PARENTS THAT

NEED TO WORK ARE BEING TAKEN

CARE OF.

MY MOTHER IS A DOCTOR.

THEY DO THAT BECAUSE SHE CAN'T

GO AND LEAVE THE CHILDREN ALONE.

A MULTIPLE LANGUAGE CALL

CENTER IS HELPING THE POPULATION

TO COPE WITH PHYSICAL AND

EMOTIONAL CHALLENGES.

WE ARE STRONG.

JULIE STALL, CBN NEWS,

ISRAEL.

PALESTINIANS CONTINUE TO PUSH

FOR INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION AT

THE UNITED NATIONS.

LAST WEEK PRESIDENT OBAMA

REPORTEDLY ASKED ABBAS NOT TO GO

THROUGH THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY.

HE IS CONFIDENT HE'LL SUCCEED.

SOME BELIEVE IT CAN CAUSE

TROUBLE FOR ISRAEL AND THE U.S.

PALESTINIANS ARE NOT JUST

CHALLENGING THE ISRAELIS, THEY

ARE CHALLENGING THE UNITED

STATES HAVING TO MAKE TOUGH

DECISIONS, HAVING TO VETO THAT

WASN'T SMACK IN THE MIDDLE OF

THE ARAB SPRING.

TRYING TO SCUTTLE THIS WITH THE

PALESTINIANS GOING AROUND SAYING

THE UNITED STATES IS THREATENING

US, AGAIN A CHALLENGE TO THE

UNITED STATES.

A VOTE IS EXPECTED NOVEMBER

29TH.

BRITAIN IS THE LATEST WESTERN

NATION TO RECOGNIZE SYRIAN

OPPOSITION FORCES AS

REPRESENTATIVE OF THE SYRIAN

PEOPLE.

BRITISH FOREIGN SECRETARY

WILLIAM HAGUE RECOGNIZED IT

TODAY -- THAT AGAINST SYRIAN

PRESIDENT BASHAR ASSAD.

U.S. HAS RECOGNIZED SYRIAN

FORCES.

THEY NEED TO SERVE THE BEST

INTERESTS OF ALL SYRIANS.

FBI CHARGED FOUR CALIFORNIA

MEN SUSPECTED OF INSPIRING TO

KILL AMERICANS AND DESTROY U.S.

TARGET OVERSEAS.

ONE SERVED IN THE U.S. AIR

FORCE.

PRELIMINARY HEARING SET IN

DECEMBER, THEY COULD FACE A

MAXIMUM OF 15 YEARS IN PRISON.

FEDERAL JUDGE REJECTED HOBBY

LOBBY FOR EXEMPT OF MANDATE OF

'OBAMACARE.' THEY RULED THEY

WERE ONLY INDIRECTLY BURDENED BY

THE MANDATE'S REQUIREMENT.

EVERY AMERICAN INCLUDING FAMILY

BUSINESS OWNERS SHOULD BE FREE

TO LIVE AND DO BUSINESS

ACCORDING TO THEIR RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS.

COMPANY PLANS TO APPEAL THE

DECISION.

MITT ROMNEY'S POOR SHOWING

WITH HISPANICS HAS IGNITED A

STRONG DEBATE AMONG THE PARTY.

PAUL STRAND HAS THE STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

A TINY MINORITY OF

ANTI-IMMIGRATION REPUBLICANS,

THEY HAD TO SHY AWAY FROM

REFORM.

YOU DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT

IT, WHEN MITT ROMNEY GOT ASKED

ABOUT IMMIGRATION, IT WAS VERY

AWKWARD.

WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HANDS?

IT IS A STANCE THAT CAME BACK

TO ROMNEY WHEN HISPANICS TURNED

ON HIM.

THEY WERE OFFENDED BY HIM.

ONLY 27% OF LATINOS VOTED.

RICH LAND SAID RONALD REAGAN

DID UM GALATIANS IMMIGRATION,

WE SHOULD EMBRACE IT NOW.

IDENTITY CARDS, CLEAR PATH TO

CITIZENSHIP, FLEXIBLE GUESS

WORKER PROGRAM THAT LETS

FOREIGNERS COME AND GO EASILY.

THIS IS AN ISSUE THAT CAN BE

SOLVED.

AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE WAY AHEAD OF

WHERE THEIR ELECTED

REPRESENTATIVES.

MOST LATINOS EMBRACE

'OBAMACARE,' BIGGER GOVERNMENT,

MUCH HIGHER MINIMUM WAGE AND SO

ON.

THESE ARE VOTERS THAT

DISAGREE.

I CAN'T DISAGREE WITH HIM

MORE.

AGULAR SAYS DEAL WITH

IMMIGRATION REFORM AND THEY WILL

TURN AROUND.

THEY WILL RECEIVE THE

CONSERVATIVE MESSAGE WELL, THEY

ARE PRO-LIFE AND FAMILY.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

AFTER TWO WEEKS OF

RECOUNTING, ALLEN WEST GIVES UP

FIGHT TO REMAIN IN CONGRESS.

REPUBLICAN CONCEDED TO DEMOCRAT

PATRICK MURPHY.

WHILE A CONTEST OF THE ELECTION

RESULTS MIGHT HAVE CHANGED VOTE

TOTALS WE DON'T HAVE EVIDENCE

THE OUTCOME WOULD CHANGE.

WEST IS KNOWN FOR FIERY SPEECHES

AND OFF THE CUFF COMMENTS

CALLING THE MAJORITY OF

CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS

COMMUNISTS.

COMING UP, HAMAS IN THE

MEDIA.

DAN GAINER JOINS US TO TALK

ABOUT THE TERRORIST GROUP.

AS THE CONFLICT BETWEEN

ISRAEL AND GAZA CONTINUES TO

PLAY OUT, ORGANIZATION HAMAS IS

MAKING PLENTY OF HEAD LINES,

STATE DEPARTMENT AND OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION RECOGNIZE THE

ORGANIZATION AS A TERRORIST

GROUP.

IN AN OPINION PIECE FOR FOX

NEWS, DAN GAINER OF THE MEDIA

RESEARCH CENTER POINTS OUT THAT

RECOGNITION DOESN'T CARRY OVER

IN THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA.

IN MORE THAN 60% NEWS COVERAGE,

TERRORIST IS REPLACED WITH

MILITANT.

WHY IS IT THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA

IS AVOIDING THE WORD?

CBS HAS BACKED OFF ON THIS.

OVER THE WEEKEND CBS

ACKNOWLEDGED U.S. AND ISRAEL

THINK OF HAMAS AS A TERROR

GROUP.

THEY WON'T CALL THEM DIRECTLY.

IT IS THE SAME GARBAGE MORAL

EQUIVALENCY WE GOT DURING THE

SOVIET UNION AND THE UNITED

STATES.

HERE YOU HAVE THE ONLY TRUE

DEMOCRACY IN THE MIDEAST IN

ISRAEL.

NETWORKS WANT TO TREAT THEM AS

EQUAL.

ABC TREATS HAMAS BETTER.

DAN, IN YOUR OPINION, WHAT IS

THE MOTIVATION FOR ALEX MARKWARD

AND OTHERS OF ABC NEWS AND

OTHERS, DO THEY HAVE AN OBVIOUS

BIAS TO THE PALESTINIAN CAUSE?

ABC IS THE NETWORK THAT HAS

THE NETWORK REPORTERS

PRO-PALESTINIAN.

TO IMBED MARKWARD IN GAZA, SO

ONE SIDE REPORTING, GIVES THEM

IMPRESSION THEY ARE THOROUGHLY

ON ONE SIDE.

NETWORK NEWS COVERAGE IS

FAVORABLE.

MEDIA USED TO LOVE ISRAEL WHEN

THEY SAW THEM AS AN UNDERDOG.

THEY GET THE POSITIVE PRESS.

HELP ME UNDERSTAND THAT.

IF WE CAN DIG DEEPER.

THE MAJORITY OF AMERICAN JEWS

ARE POLITICALLY LIBERAL.

WHY IS IT THAT THE MAIN STREAM

MEDIA TEND TO SIDE AGAINST

ISRAEL?

I THINK THE MAIN STREAM

MEDIA, TO SOME EXTEND ARE

DISAPPOINTED IN ISRAEL.

I DON'T KNOW IF THEY EXPECT

ISRAEL TO ROLL OVER AND LOSE.

THEY DON'T LIKE THE FACT THAT

ISRAEL IS A VERY SUCCESSFUL

NATION.

THOSE OF US THAT ARE

CONSERVATIVES, I DON'T AGREE

WITH THE POLITICS, THEY ARE

SURROUNDED BY ISLAMISTS OR

DICTATORS, IN COMPARISON, MEDIA

DON'T LIKE THE MILITARY ASPECTS

OF ISRAEL.

THEY CREATED THIS MORAL

EQUIVALEN

EQUIVALENCY, THEY WANT ISRAEL TO

LOSE MAN FOR MAN, WOMAN FOR

WOMAN AS MUCH AS PALESTINIANS.

IT IS INSANE.

IN THE MEANTIME, THANK YOU

FOR YOUR INSIGHT, WE APPRECIATE

YOU FOR BEING WITH US.

NEW ANY THANK YOU, GOD BLESS.

ALREADY LINING UP FOR BLACK

40 INCH LCD ON SALE FOR $149.

SYSTEM FOR $350.

MORE THAN 147 MILLION

AMERICANS EXPECTED TO HIT THE

STORES IN SEARCH OF THE BEST

BLACK FRIDAY DEALS.

SOME HAVE PLANS TO OPEN THEIR

DOORS EARLIER THAN EVER, TARGET,

WAL-MA

WAL-MART, SEARS AND KMART ALL

CASEY ST. CLAIR COLLECTED 350

SIXTIES.

MONDAY THE 24-YEAR-OLD

CITY LEADERS THE CALIFORNIA

HAVE PULLED THE PLUG ON A

NATIVITY SCENE.

THE DISPLAY HAS BEEN ERECT FOR

MORE THAN 60 YEARS.

A FEDERAL JUDGE REJECTED THE

LAWSUIT.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS MORE.

REPORTER: A SERIES OF

EIGHT-FOOT NATIVITY SCENES HAD

BEEN A TRADITION HOWEVER AFTER

SIX DECADES, CITY LEADERS BANNED

THE DISPLAYS.

THE NATIVITY SCENES BLOCKED THE

VIEW AND COST THE CITY TOO MUCH

TO MANAGE THE PRIVATE EXHIBITS.

COALITION OF CHURCHES THAT PUTS

UP THE NATIVITY SCENES DOESN'T

BELIEVE THE REASONS.

THEY CLAIM ATHEIST WHO FLOODED

THE CITY WITH PAPERWORK ARE TO

BLAME.

THEIR FREEDOM OF SPEECH

VIOLATED, A FEDERAL JUDGE BACKED

THE CITY.

THIS AMOUNTS TO AN EROSION OF

FIRST AMENDMENT SPEECH.

ATTORNEYS SAY THE DISPLAYS

CREATE A BURDEN THAT HAD BEEN

GROWING FOR 20 YEARS.

ATHEIST AND SECULAR GROUPS WON

MOST OF THE DISPLAY SPACES.

THE CONTENT WASN'T THE ISSUE,

BUT RESOURCES.

SANTA MONICA CITY HAD TO HIRE

RESOURCES. I THINK IT IS

MORE THAT SANTA MONICA DOESN'T

WANT TO DEAL WITH THE

CONTROVERSY.

I LIKE THE TRADITION OF SHG

THEM OUT. COURT SAYS THE

CHURCHES CAN PURSUE OTHER

OPTIONS.

CHRISTMAS CAROLLING IS STILL AN

OPTION AND DISPLAYS ALLOWED AT

OTHER PARKS.

EFREM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, TREKKING 300 MILES

SEATTLE TO RAISE AWARENESS AND

FOUNDATION.

SANCTUARY IN ELLENSBURG,
