IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

GOOD EVENING I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

TERRORIST GROUPS EXILED LEADER

RETURNED TO GAZA THIS WEEKEND

VOWING TO DESTROY ISRAEL.

THAT CAME AFTER HAMAS CELEBRATED

25TH ANNIVERSARY.

WHAT IS FUELLING THE GROUP IS

THE RISE OF MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

IN GAZA AND EGYPT.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS TONIGHT'S

STORY

REPORTER: HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS GATHER TO HEAR KHALED

MESHAAL.

IT MARKED THE FIRST TIME IN 45

YEARS SINCE MESHAAL HAD BEEN IN

GAZA.

HE USED THE OPPORTUNITY TO

PLEDGE ISRAEL'S DESTRUCTION.

[ FOREIGN SPEAKING ]

PALESTINE WILL BE PALESTINE.

WE WILL NEVER SURRENDER THE

LAND, JERUSALEM, RIDE OF RETURN

OR RIGHT TO RESISTANCE.

WE WILL NOT LEAVE ANY INCH OF

PALESTINIAN LAND AND NOT GIVE UP

ON ANY OF OUR RIGHTS.

ISRAELI PRESIDENT SHIMON

PERES RESPONDED TO THE SPEECH.

REAL NATURE OF HAMAS, TO

KILL, TO CONQUER, NOT TO

COMPROMISE THE PEOPLE OF GAZA

CAN REMAIN POOR AND HUNGRY.

HAMAS RALLY, THEY FEEL THEY

WON THEIR RECENT WAR WITH

ISRAEL.

THEY ANNOUNCED THEIR DESIRE TO

REACH A UNITY AGREEMENT WITH

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY PRESIDENT

MAHMOUD ABBAS.

SOME SPECULATE MESHAAL COULD BE

A PRESIDENT OF THE PA.

IN EGYPT, THE CRISIS BETWEEN

MORSI CONTINUED.

MORSI AGREED TO RESEND PART OF

HIS DEGREE BUT DIDN'T AGREE OVER

THE NEW EGYPTIAN CONSTITUTION.

THAT VOTE IS SCHEDULED FOR

DECEMBER 15TH.

OPPONENTS CONTEND THE NEW

CONSTITUTION WILL VIOLATE RIGHTS

OF WOMEN, CHRISTIANS AND

MINORITIES AND LEAD EGYPT

TOWARDS AN ISLAMIST STATES.

THEY HAVE CANCELLED PARTS OF

THE CONSTITUTION.

THE VOTING WILL TAKE PLACE ON

THE 15TH.

WE ARE ALL HERE BECAUSE WE ARE

SAYING NO TO -- NONE OF US WANT

IT TO RULE US.

BOTH MORSI AND HAMAS ARE PART

OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, A

GROUP THAT BEGAN IN 1928 WITH

THE GROUP OF OVERTHROWING

GOVERNMENTS, DESTROYING ISRAEL

AND ESTABLISHING AN ISLAMIC

CALIPHATE.

THEY SEEM DETERMINED TO REACH

THE GOALS, CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN

NEWS, JERUSALEM.

REPORTER: FOR MORE ON THE

SITUATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST, WE

TURN TO SENIOR INTERNATIONAL

CORRESPONDENT GARY LANE.

GARY, THERE IS NO QUESTION HAMAS

AND MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD MAKE

QUITE A POWERFUL ALLIANCE THERE.

HOW VULNERABLE DOES THAT MAKE

ISRAEL?

EXTREMELY VULNERABLE, LEE.

THINK ABOUT YOURSELF AND

PARENTS.

JUST LIKE THE BROTHERHOOD GAVE

BIRTH TO HAMAS.

THE CAMP DAVID ACCORDS WILL

STAND AT LEAST FOR NOW.

THERE IS SUPPORT FROM THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT AND PRESSURE AND

INFLUENCE ON MORSI.

WE HAVE TO WONDER HOW LONG IS

THAT GOING TO LAST?

ISRAELI BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

RESPONDED AND HERE IS WHAT

NETANYAHU HAD TO SAY.

NETANYAHU: WHERE WAS THE

OUTREACH?

WHERE WAS PRESIDENT ABBAS?

WHY WEREN'T PALESTINIAN

DIPLOMATS TO EXPLAIN WHY THE PA

PRESIDENT NOT ONLY REFUSED TO

CONDEMN THIS, BUT ACTUALLY

DECLARED HIS INTENTION TO UNITE

WITH HAMAS.

GARY, HE POSES GREAT

QUESTIONS, WHAT ABOUT THAT?

WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?

IT IS A DOUBLE STANDARD, YOU

DON'T HEAR FROM WESTERN MEDIA.

IT IS ANTISEMITISM.

A DISGUISED AS A LIBERATION

MOVEMENT.

BOTTOM LINE IT IS ANTI-SEMITISM.

MEDIA IS NOT CALLING THEM ON IT,

OUR OWN PRESIDENT ISN'T CALLING

THEM ON IT.

THE EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT IS

GIVING TEMPORARY POWERS TO

ARREST FOLKS IN EGYPT.

WHAT ARE THE IMPLICATIONS FOR

THAT?

IT MEANS MORSI IS NO

DIFFERENT THAN MUBARAK.

HE WOULD ARREST OPPONENTS IF

THINGS WERE GETTING DIFFICULT.

THESE ARE DIFFERENT

OPPONENTS.

WHAT MORSI IS DOING, HES

WANTS THIS CONSTITUTION TO BE

PUSHED THROUGH.

IT IS NOT THE MANDATE HE

BELIEVES HE HAD.

HE WANTS TO GET THIS THROUGH.

HE'LL STOP ANY OPPOSITION.

THE FEAR IT IS RIGGED?

YES.

OBVIOUSLY MANY OF THE

BROTHERHOOD CAN GET PEOPLE FIRED

UP FOR THIS REFERENDUM ON THE

CONSTITUTION.

THEY'LL EVEN DO WHAT THEY CAN TO

INFLUENCE PEOPLE BY GIVING

GIFTS.

WE HAVE SEEN THAT IN OTHER

COUNTRIES.

MORSI HAS RESENDING SOME OF

HIS SWEEPING POWERS, DOES THAT

MEAN HE IS VULNERABLE?

NO HE ISN'T.

THAT IS A TOKEN.

THE PRIZE IS THE CONSTITUTION.

HE CAN GIVE UP SOME OF THOSE

POWERS.

HE IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE

ANYTHING.

THAT REFERENDUM IS GOING

FORWARD.

GARY, THANKS.

WE APPRECIATE IT

FLASHING EVERYWHERE, FLAG WAS

RAISING.

WHEN I BENT DOWN TO GET MY

MEDAL, I THOUGHT ALL THE

SACRIFICES WERE WORTH IT.

THANK YOU, GOD, THANK YOU FOR

BRINGING ME TO THIS MOMENT.

SHE COUNTS THAT MOMENT AS A

MIRACLE AFTER BEING BORN WITH A

LIFE THREATENING BLOOD DISEASE.

ROAD TO VICTORY WASN'T EASY.

IN HER NEW BOOK, "GRACE, GOLD,

AND GLORY, MY LEAP OF FAITH,"SHE

HIGHLIGHTS TIMES EVEN WHEN HER

FAMILY WAS HOMELESS.

I FEEL LIKE GOD WAS ALWAYS

WITH ME.

WHY DID YOU WANT TO WRITE THE

BOOK?

BECAUSE I WANT PEOPLE TO GET

MOTIVATED AND INSPIRED AND

HAPPY.

THOUGH YOU MAYBE GOING THROUGH

DIFFICULTIES, EVERYTHING IS

POSSIBLE.

SHE SAYS THERE WERE TIMES

WHEN IT WAS HARD TO HANG ON TO

THAT KIND OF HOPE.

MY FAITH WAS TESTED.

I REMEMBER CHAMPIONSHIPS I FELL

FIVE TIMES, I WAS GOING THROUGH

AN INJURY.

I LOOKED AT MY MOM AND SAID WHY?

I FEEL LIKE GOD IS NOT THERE FOR

ME.

MY MOM SAID, I DON'T KNOW WHAT

IS HAPPENING, BUT DON'T GIVE UP

NOW.

SHE SAYS HER MOM, NATALIE, A

SINGLE MOTHER AND FAMILY KEPT

PUSHING HER TO KEEP THE FAITH.

I DON'T THINK I COULD HAVE

DONE IT WITHOUT MY FAMILY BEING

BEHIND ME THROUGH THE THICK,

THROUGH THE THIN.

YOU MENTIONED SOMETHING IN

THE BOOK, YOU ASKED GOD, WHY DID

YOU GIVE ME THIS SPECIAL GIFT?

WHY DO YOU THINK HE BLESSED YOU

WITH THIS SPECIAL GIFT?

WHY DID HE CHOOSE ME OUT OF

ALL THE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE?

WHY ME?

I SIT DOWN AND THINK.

HUH.

I THINK GOD HAS A PLAN FOR

EVERYONE.

GOD, YOU KNOW HAS JUST BLESSED

ME THROUGH THICK AND THIN.

BLESSED TO BE IN THIS POSITION.

SHE SAYS KNOWING GOD HAD A

PLAN KEPT HER MOTIVATED.

LIFE.

EVERY TIME BEFORE I COMPETED I

WAS PRAYING TO GOD.

THE GLORY.

COME WITH IT.

MEANWHILE SHE IS LOOKING AHEAD

TO THE RIO GAMES IN 2016 AND A

POSSIBLE SHOT AT ACTING.

FOR NOW SHE WANTS TO USE HER

PLATFORM TO INSPIRE OTHERS, IF
