TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" THE

SETTLEMENT SHOW DOWN, LATEST ON

ISRAEL'S PLANS TO BUILD ON LAND

PALESTINIANS CLAIM AS THEIR OWN.

PLUS WORRY IN WASHINGTON AS

THE FISCAL CLIFF DRAWS EVER

CLOSER.

AND HOW GOING UNDERGROUND

PREPARES FIRST RESPONDERS FOR

DISASTERS THEY HOPE WILL NEVER

HAPPEN.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING

EVERYONE I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

BRITAIN AND FRANCE THREATENING

TO RECALL AMBASSADORS.

ISRAEL'S PLAN WILL BUILD ON

LAND PALESTINIANS CLAIM IS PART

OF A FUTURE PALESTINIAN STATE.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS TONIGHT'S TOP

STORY FROM ISRAEL.

REPORTER: ISRAEL SAID IT

WOULD BUILD MORE THAN 3,000 NEW

APARTMENTS IN AREAS KNOWN

BIBLICALLY AS JUDEO JUDEO AND

SAMARIA.

ISRAEL SAYS THE VOTE ABGAITED

AGREEMENTS THAT PA AND ISRAEL

MADE TO EACH OTHER IN THE OSLO

ACCORDS.

NETANYAHU SAID IT WAS WAGING A

STRUGGLE AGAINST THE VERY

EXISTENCE AGAINST ISRAEL.

WE DON'T, NEITHER THE BRITISH

OR FRENCH BUILD.

WE DON'T EXPECT ANYBODY TO TELL

US WHAT TO DO.

ANOTHER PART OF THE

CONTROVERSY TO EXPAND THIS MAALE

ADUMIM LOCATING OUTSIDE

JERUSALEM.

PALESTINIAN LEADERS AND MEDIA

REPORTS SAY THE EXPANSION WOULD

CUT THE WEST BANK IN TWO.

THE WEST BANK WOULD BE ABOUT 10

MILES WIDE AND CONNECT THIS

JEWISH SUBURB TO JERUSALEM.

BAN KI-MOON AND SEVERAL

OTHERS CALL THE LAND OCCUPIED.

ISRAEL HAS THE NATURAL RIGHT AND

TERRITORIAL CLAIMS ON IT.

MEANWHILE PALESTINIAN PRESIDENT

ABBAS DECLARED PALESTINE A STATE

AND PLANS TO RECONCILE NOT WITH

ISRAEL BUT HAMAS AND GAZA STRIP.

HE SAID ONE DAY THE ETERNAL

CAPITAL OF THE STATE OF

PALESTINE.

AFTER THE U.N. VOTE AND ISRAEL'S

RESPONSE, THE BATTLE OVER THE

FUTURE AND FATE OF JERUSALEM IS

TAKING CENTER STAGE IN THE WORLD

ARENA.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, MAALE

ADUMIM.

JOHN WAAGE HAS SPENT YEARS

COVERING THE MIDDLE EAST IN OUR

JERUSALEM BUREAU.

AS A MATTER OF FACT IS RETURNING

TO ISRAEL FOR A TRIP NEXT WEEK.

JOHN, EXPLAIN ABOUT THIS LAND WE

ARE TALKING ABOUT?

LEE, THIS IS LAND RATHER THAN

A SETTLEMENT, IT IS A SUBURB OF

JERUSALEM.

WE ARE TALKING A FIVE MINUTE

DRIVE, TEN MINUTES TOPS IF YOU

HAVE TRAFFIC.

HILLS IN THE JEW DAYIAN HILLS.

GOVERNMENTS OF ISRAEL FOR THE

LAST NEARLY 20 YEARS HAVE TAKEN

THE E1 CORRIDOR AND STATE THIS

IS THE PART OF THE CITY OF THE

MAALE ADUMIM.

IT IS PART OF THE CITY OF

JERUSALEM WHICH IS A VERY

DESIRABLE PLACE TO LIVE.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO THE

ISRAEL

ISRAELIS?

THE CITY NEEDS TO EXPAND

OUTWARD.

THERE IS NOWHERE FOR THE CITY TO

GROW LITERALLY IS ON THE BORDER

OF THE WEST BANK, OUTSIDE

GOVERNMENTS, U.N., EUROPEAN,

SOMETIMES UNITED STATES SAYS YOU

CAN'T PUSH THERE, THAT IS

PALESTINIAN LAND.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO THE

PALESTINIANS?

THIS E1 CORRIDOR WOULD DIVIDE

NORTHERN WEST BANK FROM SOUTHERN

WEST BANK.

THIS WOULD BISECT IT.

THE PALESTINIANS SAY WE DON'T

WANT TO HAVE TO GO AROUND IT.

IT IS PART OF OUR LAND.

ISRAELIS ARE SAYS THIS IS PRIME

PROPERTY THAT BELONGS TO ISRAEL.

IT IS A TOUGH CONTENTION POINT.

JOHN, YOU BELIEVE THERE IS AN

ULTERI

ULTERIOR MOTIVE.

TIMING IS FORTUITOUS.

AT THE SAME TIME BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU FACES THE VOTERS IN A

MONTH AND A HALF.

I THINK THIS IS PRESSURE PLACED

ON NETANYAHU BY THE PALESTINIAN

GOVERNMENT SAYING IF WE CAN

MINIMIZE THE NUMBER OF SEATS

NETANYAHU HAS THEN WE'LL HAVE A

NEW PRIME MINISTER THAT IS

EASIER FOR US TO DEAL WITH IT.

DO YOU THINK IT IS POSSIBLE?

I DON'T THINK SO.

THE POLLS SHOW NETANYAHU IN THE

LEAD.

WENDY?

THANKS, LEE.

EGYPT'S CONSTITUTIONAL COURT

SUSPENDS INDEFINITELY.

THOUSANDS OF PRO-MORSI

DEMONSTRATORS.

THE COURT POSTPONED A RULING ON

THE LEGITIMACY OF A ISLAMIST

DOMINATED PANEL.

A RULING FROM THE COURT WOULD BE

A DIRECT CHALLENGE TO MORSI WHO

GAVE HIMSELF NEAR ABSOLUTE

POWER.

WHITE HOUSE WARNING SYRIAN

GOVERNMENT ON USING CHEMICAL

WEAPONS ON THEIR PEOPLE.

SUCH MOVE WOULD QUOTE CROSS A

RED LINE.

THERE HAS BEEN INCREASED

ACTIVITY.

SYRIAN'S FOREIGN MINISTER SAYS

ITS GOVERNMENT WOULDN'T USE SUCH

WEAPONS UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE.

SECRETARY OF STATE HILARY

CLINTON SAYS THE SYRIAN

OPPOSITION IS GETTING STRONGER.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU CAN SAY

FOR THE ENTIRE COUNTRY THE AT A

TIPPING POINT.

CERTAINLY SEEMS THAT THE REGIME

WILL BE MUCH HARDER PRESSED IN

THE NEXT MONTH.

WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN JAY

CARNIE QUOTE THE WORLD IS

WATCHING.

HE WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR

HIS ACTIONS.

IT APPEARS IRAN MAYBE WILLING

TO HOLD DIRECT TALKS WITH THE

U.S. ABOUT ITS NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

SUCH TALKS ARE POSSIBLE BUT

WOULD HAVE TO BE APPROVED BY THE

AYATOLLAH KHOMEINI.

IT IS THE FIRST CLEAR SIGNAL

IRAN WOULD CONSIDER ONE ON ONE

DIALOGUE WITH WASHINGTON.

HERE AT HOME A FEDERAL JUDGE

HAS ISSUED A PRELIMINARY

INJUNCTION AGAINST THE

PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE MANDATE

ON BEHALF OF BIBLE PUBLISHER

TINNED L HOUSE REQUIRING

COVERAGE FOR CONTRACEPTIVE AND

ABORTION INDUCING DRUGS.

IT COMPELS THEM TO VIOLATE THEIR

BELIEFS.

THEY COMPARE IT TO BATTLE OF

DAVID AND GOLIATH.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD CLINICS

QUITTING THE GROUP RATHER THAN

BEING FORCED TO DO ABORTIONS.

PRO-LIFER ARE FURIOUS WITH

REPUBLICANS LIKE MITT ROMNEY AND

JOHN MCCAIN.

MARJORIE DANNENFELSER IS ONE

OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD BIG EAST

ENEMIES.

DEDICATED TO ELECTED MORE

PRO-LIFE WOMEN AND NATIONWIDE.

SEVERAL AFFILIATES HAVE QUIT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD RATHER THAN

PROVIDE ABORTIONS BY 2013.

ONE WOMAN IN IOWA COMPLAINED

ABOUT THIS.

OTHER GOINGS ON AND SHE WAS

IMMEDIATELY BOOTED OUT.

NOW SHE IS ACTUALLY HOLDING US

IN OUR DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD

BATTLE.

THEY BOOED PEOPLE OUT AND BRAG

ABOUT IT.

IT GULLS, DANNENFELSER HOW

MUCH TAX PAYOR MONEY THAT GOES

TO THE EMPIRE.

IT IS AROUND 300,000 A YEAR.

WE ARE PAYING A MILLION DOLLARS

EVERYDAY TODAY, TOMORROW, THE

NEXT DAY TO RUN THE MOST

PROLIFIC ABORTION PROVIDER IN

THE NATION.

JOHN MCCAIN SUGGESTED THAT HE

AND OTHER REPUBLICANS NEED TO

SHUT UP ABOUT ABORTION.

DANNENFELSER SAY IT IS PRO-LIFE

ACTIVISTS FIRST LAUGHED THEN GOT

OUTRAGED BECAUSE TOP REPUBLICANS

EVEN MENTIONED ABORTION MUCH

LESS FOUGHT IT.

THERE WAS STRICT AND SEVERE

DISCIPLINE, ONLY TALK ABOUT JOBS

AND THE ECONOMY.

SHE SAYS THE SILENCE ABOUT

ABORTION WAS DEAFEN.

EVERYONE THAT IS FIGHTING A

CAUSE SAYS SILENCE IN

COMPLICITY.

ONE OF THE MAJOR WATCH

PARTIES NOVEMBER 6TH WAS

SPONSORED BY DANNENFELSER'S

LIST.

WHEN OHIO CAME THROUGH THERE

WAS A LOT OF CRYING.

WE ARE TALKING ABOUT CHILDREN

SENT TO THIS WORLD EVERYDAY FOR

A PURPOSE.

WE ARE FIGHTING FOR THEM.

TO SEE IT ALL COLLAPSE, OF

COURSE YOU ARE GOING TO BE VERY

SAT.

GUYS MAD, GIRLS CRYING.

ABOUT 2:00 A.M., PEOPLE

GATHERED AND PRAYED AND DECIDED

THEY ARE GOING TO FIGHT ON.

PAUL PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS.

WASHINGTON.

FIRST SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

WEDDINGS IN THE HISTORIC WEST

POINT CHAPEL.

I SPOKE TO CHRIS BY PHONE TO GET

HIS REACTION FOR THE CHAPEL

BEING USED FOR A SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE WEDDING.

WHEN I FIRST HEARD, I THOUGHT

I WAS ANGRY.

THIS ISN'T JUST A WEST POINT

CAPITAL ISSUE.

WHEN ANDREW JACKSON ASKED WHY HE

CARRIED A BIBLE, HE SAID IT IS

THE ISSUES UPON WHICH WE REST.

I THINK NOW THE CHALLENGE IS FOR

CHRISTIANS TO NOT TAKE UP THE

POSITION OF BASHING THE

COMMANDER IN CHIEF AND THE

INSTITUTION BUT RISE ABOVE THAT

AND PRAY FOR OUR LEADERS.

ARMY CHAPLAINS FROM OTHER

POSTS PERFORMED THE CEREMONIES

BECAUSE THE DENOMINATIONS OF

WEST POINT CHAPLINS DON'T ALLOW

THEM TO PERFORM SAME-SEX

MARRIAGES.

A TWO POINT -- DEMOCRATS HOLD

TIGHT TO RAISE TAXES ON HIGH

INCOME AMERICANS.

THOSE ON THE LEFT WANT TO CUT

SPENDING.

REPUBLICANS SAY THEIR PLANS

AREN'T SERIOUS.

CHARLENE ISRAEL HAS THE LATEST

ON THE FISCAL CLIFF.

I THINK THEY ARE SGOING OVER

THE CLIFF.

REPORTER: THERE IS NOW WORRY

IN WASHINGTON THAT THE FISCAL

CLIFF NEGOTIATIONS COULD FAIL

AND TAKE THE COUNTRY OVER THE

CLIFF.

$2,200-$2,400 TAX INCREASE FOR

EACH FAMILY AND PAYROLL TAX CUT

THAT WOULD DISAPPEAR.

ANOTHER 250 IN DEFENSE,

EDUCATION AND FOOD SAFETY

RESEARCH.

THE PRESIDENT'S INSISTENCE THAT

IS THE TAX CUTS BE ALLOWED TO

EXPIRE.

THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN GOVERN

THIS COUNTRY.

THOSE RATES HAVE TO GO UP.

THE PRESIDENT WANTS 1.6

TRILLION DOLLARS IN NEW TAX

REVENUE OVER THE NEXT 10 YEARS.

SPEAKER BOEHNER WANTS HALF THAT.

ON FOX NEWS SUNDAY, THE SPEAKER

SHOT DOWN THE PRESIDENT'S PLAN.

THE PRESIDENT IS ASKING FOR

1.6 TRILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF

NEW REVENUE OVER 10 YEARS, TWICE

AS MUCH AS HE HAS BEEN ASKING

FOR IN PUBLIC.

STIMULUS SPENDING THAT EXCEEDED

THE AMOUNT OF NEW CUTS HE WAS

WILLING TO CONSIDER.

IT WAS NOT A SERIOUS OFFER.

ECONOMISTS SAY IF WASHINGTON

CAN'T REACH A DEAL, THE U.S.

ECONOMY WILL FALL INTO A

RECESSION AND UNEMPLOYMENT RATE

WILL GO UP.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

COMING UP, AS REBELS GAIN

GROUND IN THE CONGO, WE'LL SHOW

YOU HOW CHRISTIANS ARE STEPPING

IN WITH AID.

CASUALTIES AMONG AFGHANY

SOLDIERS AND POLICEMAN ON THE

RISE AS THEY GAIN MORE

RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE COUNTRY'S

SECURITY.

300 TROOPS DIE EVERY MONTH.

ON AVERAGE 110 SOLDIERS AND 200

POLICEMAN.

FATALITIES AMONG NATO SOLDIERS

FALLEN STEADILY SINCE THE DRAW

DOWN OF FOREIGN TROOPS IN

AFGHANISTAN.

COMPLETE WITHDRAWAL SCHEDULED

FOR 2014.

TEN PEOPLE DEAD AFTER AN

ATTACK IN NORTHEAST NIGERIA.

GUNMAN ATTACKED A CHURCH AND A

ROGUE CONSTRUCTION GREW.

BOKO HARAM HAS TARGETED

ESTABLISHMENTS IN THAT REGION.

HUNDREDS HAVE DIED BETWEEN THE

TWO SIDES IN THE LAST FEW YEARS.

CHRISTIAN HUMANITARIAN RELIEF

EFFORTS IN CONGO GOING FORWARD.

M-23 RECENTLY CEASED TERRITORY.

A GROUP OF CONGOLEE PASTORS

THAT ARE THE MOST DISTRESSED AND

SEEING THEY ARE INFORMED OF WHAT

CBN IS DOING AND THEY CAN BRING

THEM INTO THE HEAL AFRICA CLINIC

AND BE SERVED.

TO HEAR MORE OF JOHN CASTLE'S

COMMENTS LOG TO TO

GLOBALLANE@CBNNEWS.COM.

UP NEXT, SEE WHERE WORKERS

TRAIN FOR DISASTER.

A NIGHTMARE OVER THE WEEKEND

IN TOKYO, THE CEILING OF A THREE

MILE LONG CONCRETE TUNNEL IT

CAME CRASHING DOWN AND NINE

PEOPLE KILLED.

RESCUE EFFORTS ON HOLD.

IT PASSED A ROUTINE INSPECTION

BACK IN SEPTEMBER.

INVESTIGATORS LOOKING INTO WHAT

CAUSED THE PANELS TO COLLAPSE.

HERE AT HOME WHEN SUCH DISASTERS

STRIKE FIRST RESPONDERS HAVE TO

BE READY TO WORK AS A TEAM.

THAT IS WHY FIRST RESPONDERS

SPEND SO MUCH TIME PRACTICING

FOR DIFFERENT SCENARIOS.

ON TONIGHT'S FOCUS REPORT CHUCK

HOLTON TAKES US UNDERGROUND TO

SHOW US HOW THEY TRAIN.

REPORTER: A TERRORIST EVENT

IN A CROWDED SUBWAY.

RESCUES RUSH IN TO HELP.

FORTUNATELY THIS IS ONLY AN

EXERCISE.

FOR THE TRAINERS IN THIS

SCENARIO, IT DOESN'T FEEL THAT

WAY.

FIRST RESPONDERS TRAVEL HERE TO

THE MOUNTAINS OF WEST VIRGINIA

TO GO UNDERGROUND. WE WILL

TAKE A UNIT THROUGHOUT THE

COUNTRY, SUPPORTED TEAMS,

CIVILIAN FIRST RESPONDERS, WE

WILL TAILER FIRST RESPONDERS,

MOCK HOSTAGE RESCUE TO

EXTRACTION FROM COLLAPSE

STRUCTURES.

ONE TUNNEL SERVES A NEW

PURPOSE TAKING DISASTER

PREPAREDNESS TO A NEW LEVEL.

WE CAN MAKE IT MIDNIGHT,

BARS, SMOKE.

THE ECHO ADDS TO THE REALISM,

YOU'LL HAVE JACKHAMMERS, PEOPLE

CRYING FOR HELP.

TODAY'S OFFICE A SIMULATED

TERROR ATTACK ON A SUBWAY TRAIN.

LOCAL WEST VIRGINIAIANS SERVE AS

VICTIMS.

TRAINING UNIT CAME ALL THE WAY

FROM PORTLAND, OREGON.

THAT IS VERY RARE.

THAT IS WHY WE TRAVELED FROM

PORTLAND TO WEST VIRGINIA.

WE TRAIN ROUTINELY.

YOU DO NOT PUT A RAIL CAR LIKE

THEY HAVE DONE HERE.

OUR JOB WAS TO DO A SWEEP OF

THE SCENE AND LOCATE DEVICES OR

DETERMINE IF WE CAN WORK AROUND

THEM.

WE ARE TRYING TO GET THOSE

FOLKS OUT OF HARM'S WAY WHILE

OUR EOD GUY RENDERS THEM SAFE.

IT WOULD BE A NIGHTMARE

SCENARIO.

IF THEY HAD NEVER WORKED

TOGETHER BEFORE, THEY MIGHT NOT

BE ABLE TO RESPOND EFFECTIVELY.

THAT IS WHY THE TRAINING AT THE

CENTER FOR NATIONAL RESPONSE IS

SO IMPORTANT.

THESE ARE THE GUYS THAT ARE

GOING TO SHOW UP AFTER THE FIRST

RESPONDERS ARE THERE AND ASK FOR

ASSISTANCE.

THESE ARE THE HEAVY LIFTERS.

THEY BRING THE BIG EQUIPMENT AND

PERSONNEL NEEDED TO DO A VERY

LARGE EVENT.

EMERGENCY WORKERS COME FROM

FAR AND WIDE BECAUSE THIS LEVEL

OF REALISM ISN'T AVAILABLE

ANYWHERE ELSE.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE

HAVE HAD LIVE ACTORS.

THEY PROVIDE A SENSE OF REALISM

AND URGENCY.

WE HOPE WE NEVER HAVE TO USE

THIS.

MORE PREPARED WE ARE, THE BETTER

WE ARE IN CASE SOMETHING

HAPPENS.

MILITARY GETS TO USE IT AS

WELL.

A SIMULATED DRUG LAB.

SPECIAL OPERATIONS COME FROM

AROUND THE COUNTRY TO SERVE IN

THIS CAVE COMPLEX BUILT THE LOOK

LIKE THE ONES IN AFGHANISTAN.

DOES NTD LOOK MUCH MORE

REALISTIC THAN THIS.

IN THE MOUNTAINS OUTSIDE

CHARLESTON, WEST VIRGINIA, I AM

CHUCK HOLTON FOR CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, THE WORLD'S LARGEST

LIVING, BREATHING, AND YES,

SINGING CHRISTMAS TREES.

[LAUGHTER].

AND FINALLY THE TALLEST AND

LARGEST HUMAN CHRISTMAS TREES IN

THE WORLD.

WHAT'S MORE, IT SINGS.

[APPLAUSE]

THAT'S RIGHT.

MEMBERS OF A MICHIGAN SCHOOL

CHOIR ARE DEBUTING TALENTS AFTER

MONTHS OF PRACTICE.

67 FEET TALL AND 300 SENIORS.

ONE LUCKY SENIOR CLIMBS ALL THE

WAY TO THE TOP TO SERVE AS

COVETED ANGEL.

IT IS ALWAYS FUNNY IN THE

HALLWAYS HEARING "JINGLE BELLS"

IN SEPTEMBER.

IT IS A SCHOOL TRADITION AT

MONA SHORES SCHOOL IN MICHIGAN.

THAT IS FASCINATING.

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING.

I WOULD LOVE TO SEE HOW THEY GET

UP THERE FROM THE BACK OR IF

THEY HAVE TO CLIMB UP.

I THOUGHT MAYBE THEY WERE

STANDING ON THEIR SHOULDERS.

I HOPE NOT.

THAT WOULD BE SO DANGEROUS.

[LAUGHTER].

THAT WOULD BE TRAGIC,

PROBABLY.

SEE YOU TOMORROW.

GOOD NIGHT.
