CEASE-FIRE AGREEMENT BETWEEN

ISRAEL AND HAMAS STARTING

TONIGHT.

GOOD EVENING I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

IT DIDN'T COME EASY ESPECIALLY

AFTER A TERRORIST BOMB WENT OFF

IN A BUS IN THE HEART OF ISRAEL.

OUR JERUSALEM BUREAU REPORTS, A

COMPLETE CEASE-FIRE AS LONG AS

HAMAS STOPS FIRING ROCKETS FROM

GAZA.

HAMAS CONTINUES TO FIRE ROCKETS

DESPITE THE NEWS OF A PEACE

DEAL.

JULIE STALL REPORTS ON THE

LATEST.

REPORTER: HAMAS CLAIMS

RESPONSIBILITY WHILE DIPLOMATIC

EFFORTS CONTINUE TOWARDS A

CEASE-FIRE.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAID ISRAEL

IS IN A BATTLE TO SAVE LIVES.

IF THERE IS A LONG TERM

SOLUTION THROUGH DIPLOMATIC

MEANS, WE PREFER THAT, IF NOT I

AM SURE YOU UNDERSTAND ISRAEL

WILL HAVE TO TAKE WHATEVER

ACTION IS NECESSARY.

CLINTON SAYS ISRAEL'S

COMMITMENT TO SECURITY IS

UNWAVERING.

IT IS E SENSUAL ESSENTIAL TO

DEESCALATE THE ROCKET FIRE.

ROCKETS FIRED IN RISHON

LEZION.

WE UNDERSTOOD SOMETHING

HAPPENED NEARBY.

PALESTINIANS SAY 120 PEOPLE

KILLED IN GAZA AND HUNDREDS OF

OTHERS WOUNDED.

HAMAS EXECUTED SIX SUSPECTED

COLLABORATORS.

THE ARMY RELEASED THIS VIDEO

SHOWING AN ABORTED BOMBING

MISSION BECAUSE CIVILIANS ARE IN

THE AREA.

FOR NOW THE BATTLE RAGES, CBN

NEWS, CHARLENE ISRAEL, RISHON

LEZION, IZ ISRAEL.

PAT ROBERTSON SPOKE WITH

CHRIS MITCHELL ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB." THEY DISCUSSED THAT AND

HAMAS'S GREATER AGENDA.

PAT, IT IS THE UNTOLD STORY.

WHAT IS HAMAS TRYING TO DO?

THEY WANT TO DESTROY JEWISH

STATE AND KILL JEWS.

PART OF THE CHARTER SAYS, DAY OF

JUDGMENT WON'T COME UNTIL THE

MUSLIMS KILL THE JEWS.

THERE WILL COME A TIME, HERE IS

A JEW, COME AND KILL HIM.

THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO DESTROY

THE JEWISH STATE, ESTABLISH A

CALL FIT.

THAT IS THE CONTEXT OF THIS

CONFLICT.

WE TALKED ABOUT THE ROCKETS OR

THE IRON DOME.

THIS IS A BATTLE OF

CIVILIZATIONS, ISRAEL IS ON THE

FRONT LINE.

PAT: DO YOU THINK IT IS A

FANT FOR THEM TO TEST ISRAELI

DEFENSES?

PART IS IRAN.

MIDDLE EAST HAS CHANGED, PAT.

HAMAS FEELS EM BOLDEN BECAUSE OF

THE CHANGES.

YOU HAVE EGYPT, MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD PRESIDENT.

THEY ARE GETTING LOGISTICAL

SUPPORT FROM EGYPT.

YOU ALSO HAVE THE EMIR OF GUTTER

FROM THE GULF STATES VISITED

HAMAS.

FIRST STATE LEADER TO VISIT

HAMAS.

TURKEY ACCUSED OF ETHNIC

CLEANSING.

THE POLITICS HAS CHANGED

DRAMATICALLY IN HAMAS'S FAVOR

AND JORDAN AS A POSSIBLE STATE

THAT COULD FALL TO MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD, SYRIA COULD FALL TO

A MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD-LIKE

GOVERNMENT.

ISRAEL FINDS ITSELF IN AN

UNSTABLE SITUATION.

THERE IS A REGIONAL WAR.

ISRAEL'S AMBASSADOR TO THE

U.S. SAYS CONFLICT WILL STOP

ONLY WHEN HAMAS STOPS FIRING

ROCKETS.

THEY PLACED CEASE-FIRE TALKS IN

JEOPARDY.

AMBASSADOR OREN, THANK YOU

FOR YOUR TIME.

PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU IN HIS

MEETING WITH SECRETARY CLINTON

SAID ISRAEL HAS TO TAKE WHATEVER

ACTIONS NECESSARY.

SECRETARY CLINTON TALKED ABOUT

URGENT NEED FOR DEESCALATION?

FIRST OF ALL, WE AGREE THERE

IS URGENT NEED FOR DEESCALATION.

HAMAS HAS FIRED 1500 ROCKETS,

200 TODAY ALONE.

TWO PEOPLE KILLED TODAY.

FIRED 800 ROCKETS AT US.

NO QUESTION OF DEESCALATION.

IT HAS TO BEGIN WITH HAMAS TO

STOP THE ROCKETS.

THEN WE WILL DISCUSS A LONG-TERM

SOLUTION.

THAT WILL MEAN NO MORE SMUGGLING

OF IRANIAN ROCKETS INTO THE GAZA

STRIP.

AND THE TERRORISTS WILL NOT BE

ABLE TO OPEN FIRE ON ISRAEL.

HOW LIKELY IS IT DO YOU THINK

THERE WILL BE A GROUND ASSAULT?

WHAT SCENARIO DO YOU SEE

HAPPENING FOR THAT TO BE LIKELY?

I CAN TELL YOU, I AM FROM

JERUSALEM, PROPHECY IS NOT

NECESSARILY MY STRONG POINT.

I CAN TELL YOU IF THE TERRORISTS

DO NOT STOP SHOOTING, WE WILL

HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE ALL

THE NECESSARY AND LEGITIMATE

MEANS TO DEFEND OUR CITIZENS.

THAT IS WHAT ANY COUNTRY WOULD

DO.

CERTAINLY ANY COUNTRY WITH A

ROUGH NEIGHBOR.

WE HAVE A BOLD CITIZEN'S ARMEY,

CALLED UP THOUSANDS OF

RESERVISTS, THE MINUTE MEN AND

WOMEN OF ISRAEL.

THEY LEFT THEIR KIDS TO DEFEND

THEIR COUNTRY.

ISRAEL HAS BEEN DELIBERATE IN

AVOIDING CASUALTIES.

TALK ABOUT ISRAEL HAS CONDUCTED

ITSELF VS.S HAMAS?

WE VIEW IT AS A FAILURE.

WE ARE FIGHTING AN ENEMY THAT

VIEWS KILLING CIVILIANS ON OUR

SIDE A VICTORY.

AMBASSADOR, OREN, ANYTHING LS

YOU WANTED TO ADD?

I WANT TO THANK YOUR VIEWERS.

WE HAVE NO BETTER FRIENDS.

YOUR PRAYERS ARE DEEPLY

APPRECIATED.

IN HEBREW, [ FOREIGN SPEAKING ]

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

EXTENDED INTERVIEW AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

LATER IN THIS NEWS CAST, YOU'LL

SEE HOW CBN IS HELPING THEM FIND

SHELTER.

AAA SAYS TODAY IS THE BUSIEST

TRAVEL DAY OF THE YEAR.

OTHER PROBLEMS, A SHORTAGE OF

RENTAL CARS IN NORTHEAST, ROUGH

WEATHER IN NORTHWEST, A MAJOR

PROTEST AT LOS ANGELES

INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

THIS IS PART OF THE FRONT.

FIGHT THE FIGHT AND FIGHT THE

CROWDS.

75% OF THE COUNTRY RAIN FREE.

AROUND 43%, 43.6 MILLIONS

EXPECTED TO TRAVEL 50 MILES OR

MORE, LESS THAN 1% INCREASE FROM

LAST YEAR.

THIS HOLIDAY SEASON COULD MEAN

BAD NEWS FOR CHARITIES.

AMERICANS MAY SPEND MORE BUT

GIVE LESS WITH THE CURRENT

ECONOMY.

51% OF U.S. ADULTS WOULD BE MORE

LIKELY TO GIVE A CHARITABLE GIFT

AS A PRESENTED.

THIS YEAR THE PERCENTAGE

DROPPED.

MEANINGFUL GIFTS THAT GIVE TO

CHARITIES THAT HELP OTHERS.

A TEXAS HIGH SCHOOL IS

KICKING OUT A STUDENT FOR

REFUSING TO WEAR A SMART ID

TRACKING BADGE.

JOHN JAY HIGH SCHOOL REQUIRES

STUDENTS TO WEAR THEM.

ANDRIA HERNANDEZ SAYS NEW ID

VIOLATES RELIGIOUS BELIEFS AND

PRIVACY.

SHE WILL BE WITH DRAWN FROM

SCHOOL THIS MONDAY.

THE GROUP'S PRESIDENT SAYS IT IS

A SAD DAY WHEN SCHOOL OFFICIALS

DENY SOMEONE AN EDUCATION SIMPLY

BECAUSE SHE STANDS UP FOR WHAT

SHE BLOELIEVES IN.

A FEDERAL COURT IS BANNING NEW

YORK CITY FROM BANNING SCHOOL

BUILDINGS FOR WORSHIP SERVICES.

THEY HAVE NOT RULED IN THE 12

YEAR OLD CASE.

HOBBY LOBBY TAKEN A NEW STEP

AGAINST 'OBAMACARE' MANDATE.

CHRISTIAN OWNERS HAVE FILED A

FEDERAL APPEAL AFTER A LOWER

COURT DENIED REQUEST.

THEY COULD FACE DAILY FINES UP

TO 1.3 MILLION DOLLARS FOR

FAILURE TO REPLY.

IT IS BY GOD'S GRACE THAT HOBBY

LOBBY HAS ENDURED.

WE SEEK TO HONOR GOD IN A MANNER

CONSISTENT WITH BIBLICAL

PRINCIPLES.

CBN ISRAEL IS STEPPING IN TO

HELP.

HERE IN AMERICA, IT IS HARD

TO FAT OM WHAT IT IS LIKE TO

HAVE ROCKETS FLYING OVER YOUR

HOME.

CBN ISRAEL IS TRYING TO HELP

ONE FAMILY AT A TIME.

THEY HAVE FOUND QUIET SHELTER

FOR THE MOMENT.

THEY HAVE SPENT DAYS WATCHING

ROCKETS FALL AND EXPLODE TOO

CLOSE TO HOME.

LIVING BY THE GAZA STRIP, WE

HEAR THE MISSILES COMING IN AS

WELL AS THE PLANES BOMBING.

IT IS HARD TO SHAKE YOUR KIDS

AWAKE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

NIGHT.

THEY WAKE UP SAY WHAT IS GOING

ON?

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

WE ARE ONLY FIVE SECONDS

AWAY.

WE HEAR THE SIRENS AND FOUR

SECONDS LATER, MISSILES FALL ALL

AROUND US.

MORTERS NEXT TO OUR HOUSE

EVERYDAY.

CBN ISRAEL HAS GIVEN DOZENS

OF ISRAELI FAMILIES PROVIDED

SAFE SHELTER, FOOD AND A QUIET

HOTEL FAR FROM THE BOMBING.

SUDDENLY EVERYTHING IN OUR

LI

LIVES IS CALM.

THEY COULDN'T RIDE THEIR BIKE

OR LIVE BECAUSE OF THE MORTERS

AND MISSILES FALLING ALL AROUND

US. HAVING A CHANCE TO

RELAX IS IMPORTANT FOR THIS

FAMILY.

A DEGENERATIVE ILLNESS LEFT THIS

MAN DISABLED.

WE ONLY HAVE A FEW SECONDS TO

TAKE COVER, WE GET TO THE

SHELTER AND THE KIDS ASK WHERE

IS DAD?

I CANNOT CARRY THE WHOLE FAMILY.

THANKS TO CBN ISRAEL STAYING

HERE HAS GIVEN THEM A MUCH

NEEDED REST.

THIS IS A FRESH AIR FOR US.

THIS IS GIVING US THE

STRENGTH TO CONTINUE ON.

I CAN'T SAY ANYTHING BUT BLESS

YOU AND THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

YOU CAN SEE THE JOY ON OUR

CHILDREN'S FACES.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

YOU HAVE GIVEN US A BREAK.

I CAN'T EXPRESS OUR GRATITUDE.

WE'LL LOOK BACK ON THE DAYS OF

THIS HOTEL AS THE BEST DAYS OF

OUR LIVES.

AND WELCOME BACK, TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WITHOUT

ELECTRICITY PLUNGED INTO THE

DARK FOR DAYS AFTER HURRICANE

SANDY. SUPERSTORM REVEALED

MANY OF OUR ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS

IN BAD SHAPE.

THAT MAKES AMERICA MORE

VULNERABLE TO TERRORISTS.

AMERICA'S LARGEST CITIES ARE

TICKING TIME BOMBS.

PROBLEM LIES IN A POWER GRID

SIMPLY TOO OLD AND CAN'T KEEP

UP.

TRANSFORMERS EXCEED THEIR LIFE

SPAN.

THEY PUT GREATER STRESS ON THE

FRAME WORK NEVER MEANT TO SEE

THE 21ST CENTURY.

IF UPGRADES AREN'T MADE A

PRIORITY, RESULTS CATASTROPHIC,

NOT JUST HERE IN THE CITY, BUT

WORLDWIDE.

WE WITNESSED WEEKS AGO HOW

HURRICANE SANDY BROUGHT THE

WORLD'S FINANCIAL CENTER AND

AMERICA'S LARGEST CITY TO ITS

KNEES.

MULTIBILLION DOLLAR DISASTER

PAILS IN COMPARISON TO WHAT

COULD HAPPEN WITH A COMPLETE

MELT DOWN.

WHEN YOU SAW THE DAMAGE TO

THE ELECTRICAL DISTRIBUTION.

YOU START HEATING UP THE SYSTEM,

EQUIPMENT BECOMES DAMAGED.

NEW YORK'S ELECTRICITY MOVES

FROM POWER PLANTS TO

TRANSFORMERS AT A HIGH VOLTAGE.

THEY TRANSFORM IT, IT IS THEN

SENT THROUGHOUT THE CITY.

IF A SWITCH YARD IS TAKEN OUT.

CONNECTION BETWEEN THE POWER

PLANT AND ALL THE LOCAL LINES IS

LOST.

IT MEANS NO WATER OR STEAM.

THAT HAPPENED DURING SANDY AT

THE 14TH STREET SWITCH YARD.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE THAT HAVE NO ELECTRICITY.

IT IS A VERTICAL CITY HAS NO

WATER.

WE HAVE SEEN THE COLLAPSE OF

FAILURE OF THE STEAM SYSTEM.

STEAM PLANTS RELY ON POWER TO

OPERATE THE PLANT.

SOME HAVE GENERATORS, NOT ALL.

IF THEY LOSE THE STEAM PLANT IN

THE SUMMERTIME, IT IS DIFFICULT,

A LOT OF CUSTOMERS ARE IN

TROUBLE.

IF THEY LOSE IN THE WINTERTIME,

NOW YOU HAVE MAJOR RESIDENTIAL

BUILDINGS DEPENDENT.

IT LED TO LOOTING AND CHAOS.

LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS FEAR A

LONGER TERM SCENARIO.

THERE IS SUCH A THING OF GOOD

AND EVIL.

HOW LONG CAN YOU STAY ON YOUR

FEET WHEN YOU ARE TRYING TO

EVACUATE A BUILDING, THE SUBWAY

TUNNELS AND GET TO THE HOSPITAL

AND KEEPING AN EYE ON THOSE

PEOPLE THAT TAKE ADVANTAGE OF

THE ORDINARY PERSON.

THE REAL THREAT OF TERRORISTS.

THEY ARE AMONGST US.

THE MANY MINUTE THEY ARE

PREOCCUPIED ALL THOSE OTHER

THINGS WILL TAKE ADVANTAGE AND

THAT IS WHAT THEY LOOK FOR.

THE ELECTRICITY POWERS THE NEW

YORK CITY SUBWAY SYSTEMS.

IF IT IS THIS ACCESSIBLE TO US,

HAD THE TERRORIST FLOWN TWO

PLANES INTO THIS FACILITY, THE

CONSEQUENCES TO NEW YORK CITY

AND THE NATION WOULD HAVE BEEN

ORDERS OF MAGNITUDE MORE

DAMAGING.

THERE WAS A SOLUTION TO CITY

LEADERS BACK IN 2001, A

CO-GENERATION PLANT, ABLE TO

KEEP UP WITH 21ST CENTURY

TECHNOLOGY.

IT IS A PLACE WHERE WE COULD

ELECTRIFY THE PLANT.

EVEN IF A GRID WENT DOWN, OUR

PLANT WOULD STAY UP AND RUNNING.

ON TOP OF THE PLANT WE ARE GOING

TO PUT A PARK.

IT WOULD HAVE USED PRIVATE

INVESTORS UNDER A PUBLIC-PRIVATE

PARTNERSHIP.

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN CLEAN AND

GREEN.

WE WOULD HAVE CLEANED UP THE

AIR AND WATER.

VICTOR MAINTAINS, POLITICS

AND A LACK OF SUPPORT LED TO A

REJECTION OF HIS PLANT IN COURT.

IF IT HAD BEEN IN OPERATION, IT

COULD HAVE KEPT THE LIGHTS ON

DURING HURRICANE SANDY.

WHAT IS THE HOLD UP IN FIXING

THIS AGING SYSTEM?

CBN NEWS SPOKE WITH NEW YORK

GOVERNOR GEORGE PATAKI.

IT MIGHT NOT BE POPULAR.

CERTAINLY NEVER IS POPULAR WHEN

YOU HAVE AN INFRASTRUCTURE

PROJECT GOING NEAR WHERE SOMEONE

LIVES AND WORKS.

YOU CAN'T FOCUS ON THE ISSUES OF

JUST TODAY.

YOU HAVE TO THINK ABOUT THE

MEANS TOMORROW.

TSZ A BALANCING ACT.

SOME PEOPLE CAN'T DO IT.

VERY OFTEN THE FUTURE NEEDS,

INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS ARE WHAT IS

FORGOTTEN.

NEW VICTOR WILL CONTINUE TO

FIGHT WITH THE HOPE THAT CITY

AND STATE LEADERS WILL GET ON

BOARD BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.

ALL INFRASTRUCTURE EVER BUILT

HAS FAILED.

OLDER INFRASTRUCTURE WILL

EVENTUALLY FAIL.

SOONER THAT WE AUGMENT AND

REINFORCE THIS OLD

INFRASTRUCTURE, THE SAFER WE

WILL BE TO PREVENT THAT DAY OF

RECKONING.

KATELYN BURRINGS, CBN NEWS,

NEW YORK, NEW YORK.

MEDIA, YOU MAY HAVE PARTICIPATED

THINGS.
