TONIGHT HOW EGYPT IS DIVIDED.

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE SPENT

BILLIONS OF DOLLARS THIS

WEEKEND, HOW MUCH MORE ARE

AMERICANS EXPECTED TO SPEND THIS

CYBER MONDAY.

TAKE YOU TO THE BOMB SHELTER

CAPITAL A PLACE IN ISRAEL

NICKNAMED ROCKET TOWN.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING

EVERYONE I AM LEE WEB.

EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT MOHAMMED

MORSI TELLS TOP JUDGES IN HIS

COUNTRY HE WAS WITHIN HIS RIGHTS

TO ISSUE A DECREE GIVING HIM

EXTREME GOVERNMENTAL POWERS.

MORSI'S MOVE HAS LEFT EGYPT

DEEPLY DIVIDED.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS TONIGHT'S TOP

STORY.

REPORTER: FOR DAYS THEY WANT

MORSI TO STEP DOWN OR RESEND

DECREES.

THE POSITION IS OBVIOUS.

THERE IS NO NEGOTIATION.

POLITICAL POWERS WILL NOT MEET

WITH PRESIDENT MOHAMMED MORSI

UNTIL HE HAS CANCELLED THE

CONSTITUTIONAL DECLARATION.

NO ONE CAN REVERSE OR CHANGE

ANY OF THE DECISIONS.

THIS PUTS HIM IN CONTROL OF ALL

BRANCHES OF EGYPT'S GOVERNMENT,

EXECUTIVE, LEGISLATIVE AND

JUDICIAL.

MORSI CLAIMS HIS DECREES ARE

TEMPORARY.

MANY POLITICAL LEADERS DISAGREE

LIKE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE WINNER

MOHAMMED.

EGYPT'S STOCK MARKET LOSS

WHILE MANY MORSI DEMONSTRATORS

DEFENDED HIS ACTION.

CHRISTIAN LEADERS WITH DREW

DRAFTING A NEW CONSTITUTION.

THEY OBJECTED TO THE ISLAMISTS.

HERE IN JERUSALEM ARE

CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT MORSI'S

ACTIONS MEAN BETWEEN ISRAEL,

EGYPT AND THE REST OF THE MIDDLE

EAST.

MORSI HELPED BROKER A

CEASE-FIRE.

HIS LATEST ACTIONS LOOK LIKE HE

IS TRYING TO ESTABLISH AN

IRANIAN-STYLE RELIGIOUS STATE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CAB CAN BE NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

DESPITE THE TURMOIL IN EGYPT,

LEADERS ARE WORKING ON DIRECT

TALKS BETWEEN ISRAEL AND HAMAS.

THEY AGREED TO A CEASE-FIRE LAST

WEDNESDAY.

HAMAS WANTS ISRAEL TO END THE

GAZA BLOCKADE.

GAZA RESIDENTS CAN'T GET

BUILDING MATERIALS.

ISRAEL WANTS END OF SMUGGLING IN

THE TUNNELS.

A LAW PROFESSOR AND AUTHOR JOINS

US.

IN YOUR ESTIMATION, WHAT IS THE

BIGGEST THREAT FACING ISRAEL?

FIRST OF ALL, THANKS FOR

HAVING ME ON THE SHOW.

COUPLE OF THREATS, ONE IS EGYPT

TO WEAR.

TWO IS THE HAMAS, THERE IS A

CEASE-FIRE.

ARMS WILL BE COMING THROUGH THE

TUNNELS.

OBVIOUSLY THE IRANIAN QUESTION.

TAKE ALL THREE, A COMPLICATED

TRIANGLE.

CAN WE EXPECT THE EGYPTIANS

TO BE HONEST BROKERS?

COMES DOWN TO MUTUAL

SELF-INTEREST.

THE ANSWER IS YES.

IF THE EGYPTIANS DETERMINE THEY

DON'T HAVE A SELF-INTEREST

MOVING THE CEASE-FIRE FORWARD,

PROBABLY NOT.

THAT IS HOW THEY BEGAN EGYPT TO

WEAR.

YOU LIVE IN EGYPT, WHAT DO

ISRAELI CITIZENS ON THE STREET

THINK?

DO THEY WANT AN HONEST DEAL HERE

ON THESE GOEGS

NEGOTIATIONS.

LIFE GOES ON, WANT TO SEE IF

THE EGYPTIANS WANT TO BE THE

HONEST BROKERS YOU MENTIONED.

THE ROLE OF THE UNITED STATES

MOVING FORWARD AND HOW IS HAMAS

GOING TO ENFORCE CEASE-FIRE ON

ITSELF.

REMEMBER THEN GAZA IS ALSO

ISLAMIC JIHAD.

CAN HAMAS INFLUENCE THEM?

PROBABLY MORE QUESTIONS THAN

ANSWERS.

WE TALKED AT THE BEGINNING OF

OUR PROGRAM ABOUT MOHAMMED MORSI

AND TAKING THESE EXPREEM POWERS.

THE COUNTRY IS IN SHAMBLES.

DID MORSI OVERESTIMATE HIS

POWER?

INTERESTING, WHOLE POINT OF

THE ARAB SPRING WAS TO UNDO MUM

BARIC.

THESE EXTRAORDINARY POWERS HE

HAS GIVEN HIMSELF MAY HAVE

OVERSTEPPED AND SURPRISED BY THE

JUDICIARY AND REACTION IN THE

STREET WHICH IS WHY HE WOULD

QUESTION THE MEETING WITH THE

NATION'S JUDICIARY.

WILL HE HAVE TO STEP DOWN?

HE'LL SURVIVE.

THERE IS A VESTED AMERICAN

INTEREST THAT HE STAY IN POWER.

I NEED NOT TELL YOU IT IS

UNSTABLE.

HAVING MORSI STEP DOWN WILL

INCREASE INSTABILITY.

THANKS FOR HAVING ME.

IN OTHER NEWS TONIGHT, ISRAEL

EHUD BARACK IS QUITTING

POLITICS.

ISRAEL IS HOLDING ELECTIONS IN

JANUARY.

HE IS A FORMER PRIME MINISTER.

HE HAD BEATEN CURRENT PRIME

MINISTER, BENJAMIN NETANYAHU IN

1999.

HE IS LEAVING POLITICS TO SPEND

MORE TIME WITH FAMILY.

IT IS CYBER MONDAY.

THIS YEAR STARTED EARLY,

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER: ONLINE SHOPPERS ARE

EXPECTED TO SPEND MORE THAN A

BILLION DOLLARS TODAY TAKING

ADVANTAGE OF CYBER MONDAY DEALS.

IT IS PREDICTED TO BE THE

BIGGEST ONLINE SHOPPING DAY OF

THE YEAR, DEEP DISCOUNTS AT

MIDNIGHT.

THIS YEAR MANY OF THE DEALS

STARTED EARLY.

SO MANY DEALS OFFERED

WEDNESDAY ALL THE WAY THROUGH

THE WEEKEND AND SOME OF THE

MONEY HAS BEEN SPENT.

SEVERAL MAJOR RETAILERS

STARTED BLACK FRIDAY, TARGET,

WAL-MART AND KOHLS OPENED ON

THURSDAY NIGHT.

IT PAID OFF.

SPENDING $432 PER PERSON.

THAT TOTALS 59 BILLION DOLLARS

SPENT OVER THE HOLIDAY SEASON,

AN ALL TIME HIGH.

I ACTUALLY DIDN'T GET ANY

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING DONE.

BOOTS, SHOES, APPLIANCES,

LUGGAGE.

DEALS BROUGHT OUT THE WORST

IN SOME SHOPPERS.

EVERYBODY STARTED GOING

CRAZY.

COPS GOT CALLED IN.

IT WAS A MAD HOUSE.

IN MASSACHUSETTS, A MAN LEFT

HIS GIRLFRIEND'S TWO-YEAR-OLD

SON IN A CAR WHILE HE WENT

SHOPPING FOR A NEW FLAT SCREEN.

POLICE FORCED THEIR WAY INTO THE

CAR.

HE WAS TAKEN TO A NEARBY

HOSPITAL FOR PRECAUTIONS.

THE MADNESS WILL PAY OFF FOR THE

ECONOMY.

NATIONAL RETAIL FEDERATION

ESTIMATES OVERALL RETAIL SALES

IN NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER WILL BE

UP 4.1% THIS YEAR.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

MAD RUSH.

BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU HAS TIPS

FOR CYBER MONDAY SHOPPERS.

TRUST THE SITE YOU ARE BUYING

FROM.

KEEP AN EYE ON THE SITE'S

PRIVACY POLICY.

USE A CREDIT CARD INSTEAD OF

DEBIT CARD.

IF YOU ARE USING YOUR CELL PHONE

TO SHOP, MAKE SURE THE INTERNET

CONNECTION IS SECURE.

SOME CONGRESSIONAL REPUBLICANS

WILL GO ALONG WITH RAISING TAXES

ONLY UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS.

THEY WOULD RATHER SEE MORE

SPENDING CUTS.

MANY SIGNED A PLEDGE NEVER TO

RAISE TAXES.

NOW SOME ARE WILLING TO PLACE IT

ON THE TABLE IN EXCHANGE FOR

ENTITLEMENT REFORMS.

I WILL VIOLATE THE PLEDGE FOR

THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY IN

DEMOCRATS AGREE.

ECONOMIC SITUATION IS

DIFFERENT.

PRESIDENT OBAMA WANTS TO

RAISE TAXES ON HOUSE HOLDS

EARNING MORE THAN $250,000 A

YEAR.

REPUBLICANS WANT TO ELIMINATE

SOME DEDUCTIONS AND KEEP TAX

RATES THE SAME.

CONGRESS AND PRESIDENT HAVE

UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR TO

AVOID TAX INCREASES AND SPENDING

CUTS THAT SOME ECONOMISTS SAY

WILL LEAD TO ANOTHER RECESSION.

SOME KEY REPUBLICANS WILL NOT

STAND IN THE WAY OF SUSAN PRICE

TO BECOME SECRETARY OF STATE.

SHE BLAMED AN ANIT-ISLAMIC VIDEO

RATHER THAN TERRORISM.

JOHN MCCAIN SAYS RICE SHOULD BE

ABLE TO TELL HER SIDE OF THE

STORY.

THE REAL QUESTION IS WHY DID THE

ATTACK HAPPEN AT ALL?

IT HAS TO BE LOOKED INTO, WHY

THERE WAS SUCH A FAILURE ON THE

PART OF THE ADMINISTRATION IN

LIGHT OF EVENTS THE TWO ATTACKS

ON OUR EMBASSY.

ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT ON BRITISH

AMBASSADOR.

IT MADE BENGHAZI CONSULATE A

DEATH TRAP.

WHY DIDN'T WE HAVE HELP NEARBY

ON 9/11.

IF RICE IS NOMINATED SHE WILL

FACE SERIOUS QUESTIONS ABOUT THE

BENGHAZI ATTACK.

U.S. SUPREME COURT IS REVIVING

LIBERTY'S LAWSUIT AGAINST

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S HEALTH CARE

PLAN.

FEDERAL APPEALS COURT WILL RULE

ON THE CASE.

CHRISTIAN COLLEGE CHALLENGED THE

LAW IN 2010 ARGUING THE BIRTH

CONTROL MANDATE VIOLATES

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

IT RULED THE LAW CONSTITUTIONAL

EARLIER.

THE SCHOOL PETITIONS THE LAW TO

REOPEN THE CASE AGAINST

CONTRACEPTION MANDATE.

COMING UP, WHAT COMES AFTER THE

WITHDRAWAL?

THE LATEST ON AMERICAN'S ROLE IN

AFGHANISTAN.

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS FINALLY

DECIDED ON THE NUMBER OF TROOPS

TO STAY IN AFGHANISTAN AFTER

2014.

THAT NUMBER IS 10,000 TROOPS.

THAT IS WITHIN THE 6-15,000

RANGE RECOMMENDED BY GENERAL

JOHN ALLEN.

DEFENSE ANALYST RECOMMEND 30,000

TO MAINTAIN STABILITY.

WHITE HOUSE BELIEVES 10,000 WILL

SATISFY.

THAT NUMBER HAS TO BE APPROVED

BY AFGHAN PRESIDENT HAMID

KARZAI.

A POLICE ATTACKED TO NIGERIA

FREEING MANY PRISONERS.

MANY MEMBERS OF BOKO HARAM ARE

IMPRISONED THERE.

FEDERAL AUTHORITIES SAID NO BOKO

HARAM PRISONERS ESCAPED.

TWO SUSPECTEDED GUNMAN AND 25 OF

THE ESCAPED PRISONERS HAVE BEEN

RECAPTURED.

LATEST NIGERIAN VIOLENCE COMES

AFTER A CAR BOMBING AT A

PROTESTANT CHURCH.

A BUS PACKED WITH EXPLOSIVE RAN

INTO ST. ANDREW MILITARY

PROTESTANT CHURCH.

ABOUT 10 MINUTES LATER A CAR

EXPLODED AS PEOPLE FLED THE

FIRST ATTACK.

NO ONE CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY.

IT IS SIMILAR TO PAST BOKO HARAM

ATTACKS.

THAT IS CAUSING CONCERNS FOR

CHRISTIANS ACROSS THE NATION.

MY BIGGEST WORRY ABOUT THE

SECURITY OF THE CHRISTIANS IN

THE STATE.

I AM WORRIED AT THAT.

EVERY TIME THEY FULFILL IT.

THE APPREHENSION IS ONE DAY THEY

WILL COME TO ATTACK THE

CHURCHES.

BOKO HARAM IS BLAMED FOR

KILLING MORE THAN 760 PEOPLE

THIS YEAR ALONE.

RESCUE CREWS SEARCHING FOR MISS

MISSING FACTORY WORKERS IN

BANGLADESH.

THE FACTORY HAD NO FIRE ESCAPES.

IT MADE PRODUCTS FOR MAJOR U.S.

RETAILERS LIKE WAL-MART.

ACTIVISTS SAY THOSE COMPANIES

SHOULD BE FINED.

THEY HAVE BEEN WARNED AND

HAVEN'T TAKEN ACTION.

THIS IS JUST THE LATEST

EXAMPLE OF POOR FACTORY

CONDITIONS IN BANGLADESH SINCE

2006, MORE THAN 300 PEOPLE HAVE

DIED IN SIMILAR FIRES.

UGANDAN LAWMAKERS SET TO VOTE ON

A NEW ANTI-HOMOSEXUALITY RULES.

THEY ARE CALLING ON PARLIAMENT

NOT TO PASS IT.

UGANDA'S PARLIAMENTARY SPEAKER

WANTS IT TO PASS BEFORE

CHRISTMAS.

IN SEVERAL REGIONS THE DEATH

PENALTY CAN BE IMPOSED.

LIVING ON THE FRONT LINES, HOW

ONE ISRAEL COMMUNITY IS ALWAYS

PREPARED FOR THE WORST.

WELCOME BACK, A CEASE-FIRE

MAYBE IN PLACE BETWEEN HAMAS AND

ISRAEL.

THOSE LIVING IN ISRAELI

COMMUNITY, TOWN IS ON THE BORDER

WITH GAZA.

SCOTT ROSS RECENTLY VISITED TO

SEE WHAT IT IS LIKE TO LIVE

UNDER CONSTANT FIRE.

THEY CALL IT ROCKET TOWN,

BOMB SHELTER CAPITAL OF THE

WORLD.

FOR MORE THAN A DECADE ISRAELIS

HAVE LIVED UNDER ALMOST DAILY

ROCKET ATTACKS FROM THE GAZA

STRIP.

IS THIS REPRESENTATIVE OF WHAT

YOU ARE DEALING WITH?

VERY SMALL FRACTION EXPLODED

HERE AND THE REGION ITSELF.

WE HAD OVER 44 PEOPLE KILLED

OVERALL BY ROCKET FIRE.

OVER 1200 SERIOUSLY INJURED.

AT THE SAME TIME ENTIRE

GENERATION THAT GREW UP WITH

THIS REALITY OF SIRENS GOING ON.

THIS MAN BORN AND RAISED IN

STEROT AND THE CITY'S MAYOR FOR

14 YEARS.

YOU LOVE THIS TOWN AND THE

PEOPLE?

OF COURSE.

DAY BY DAY YOU HAVE TO LIVE

WITH THIS LIFE STYLE, ROCKETS

SHOWERED UPON YOU.

HOW DOES ANYONE ADJUST?

IN 2001 IT WAS THE MISSILE

THAT LAUNCHED TO THIS CITY.

WE HAD MORE THAN 8,000 MISSILES.

THEY LAND ONLY IN THE STEROT.

A LITTLE TOWN, 5.5 SQUARE

KILOMETERS, 25,000 PEOPLE LIVE

HERE.

YOU CAN IMAGINE 8,000, ALMOST

EVERY APARTMENT, EVERY HOUSE IN

THE CITY.

MANY ISRAELIS SUFFER FROM

POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER.

MAYOR TOOK ME TO A HILL ON

THE EDGE OF TOWN WHERE WE COULD

SEE JUST HOW CLOSE THE GAZA

STRIP IS.

THIS IS THE BORDER, 840

METERS.

SOMETHING LIKE HALF A MILE.

THEY COULD FIRE ROCKETS AT

THESE TOWERS AND KNOCK THEM

DOWN.

YES.

THEY LAUNCH ROCKETS THROUGHOUT

ELECTRIC POST.

YOU SUPPLY GAZA?

THEY LAUNCH THE ROCKETS AND

COMPLAIN THERE IS DARKNESS.

EVERYONE WHO DRIVES IN STEROT

TURNS OFF THE RADIO AND ROLLS

THE WINDOWS DOWN READY TO HEAR

THE COLOR RED SIREN TO MAKE A

MAD DASH FOR SAFETY.

HERE I AM ON A PLAYGROUND

WHERE KIDS COME AND PLAY.

HERE IS A CATERPILLAR.

ANYWHERE ELSE THIS WOULD BE A

NORMAL CATERPILLAR.

THIS IS A BIT DIFFERENT.

THIS IS IN FACT, A BOMB SHELTER.

WHEN KIDS COME OUT TO PLAY, A

SIREN GOES OFF, THEY HAVE 15

SECONDS TO BE PROTECTED FROM

FALLING BOMBS.

HOW DOES THIS ENVIRONMENT

AFFECT CHILDREN AS THEY ARE

GROWING UP?

ONLY YESTERDAY I WAS TALKING

WITH ONE OF MY FRIENDS THAT HER

BOY IS IN OUR KINDERGARTEN.

HE WAS SO PANICKED, SHE HAD TO

COME GET HIM.

HE IS ONLY TWO YEARS OLD.

THIS IS THE SOCIAL WORKER.

WE HAVE TO BE AWARE OF THE

BOMB SHELTER?

OKAY.

NOTHING MOVED ME MORE THAN

MEETING GUOT AAGON.

SHE WAS SHE WAS SITTING AT HOME,

A ROCKET CRASHED THROUGHOUT ROOM

WHERE THEY WERE SITTING.

THE BOMB COMES THROUGHOUT

WALL INTO THE ROOM.

ALL THE ROOF WAS CRUSHED ON US

FROM THE EXPLOSION.

THE GIRL WAS FRIED TO THE

CORNER.

FOUR SHRAPNELS INTO HI HEAD.

IT IS DEEP INTO THE BRAIN.

GUOT WAS IN REHAB.

NEARLY FIVE YEARS LATER, HER SON

IS STILL AFRAID TO SLEEP IN HIS

ROOM.

HE HAS TO RUN TO THE BOMB

SHELTER SOMETIMES THREE TIMES A

NIGHT.

WHY DOES SHE STAY?

IT IS MY COUNTRY, MY CITY.

I WAS BORN HERE.

I LOVE IT.

IF YOU WANT TO MOVE, YOU NEED TO

SELL DOWN.

NO ONE WANTS TO BUY A HOUSE IN

STEROT.

NO ONE WANTS TO COME TO LIVE

UNDER BOMBING.

I HAVE TO YOU WE VERY LOVE THIS

CITY.

HOW DOES IT AFFECT YOU WHEN

YOU HEAR THE ROCKETS LANDING?

THEY ARE STILL SHOOTING THEM

HERE.

EVERY TIME I HEARD THE

SIRENS, IT TAKES ME BACK TO

THEN.

WHEN I GO DOWN TO THE SHELTER, I

AM SITTING AND STOP CRYING EVERY

TIME AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.

DO YOU BELIEVE THAT GOD

PROTECTED YOU?

YEAH.

YEAH.

I BELIEVE THAT.

YEAH.

YOU ARE NOT ANGRY WITH GOD

BECAUSE HE ALLOWED IT TO HAPPEN?

NO.

NO, I THINK NOW WHEN I THOUGHT

BACK THEN IT WAS A MIRACLE.

OH YES.

HE PROTECTED ME AND LEFT ME

FOR MY BOYS BECAUSE AND I THANK

HIM EVERY MORNING.

I NEVER WAS THAT BELIEVER, YOU

KNOW.

NO.

I BELIEVE MORE.

SCOTT ROSS, CBN, STEROT,

ISRAEL.

UP NEXT, CHRISTMAS COMES

EARLY IN THE NATION'S CAPITAL.
