TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

SURVEILLANCE AND SECURITY.

MORE ABOUT THE N.S.A.

TRACKING PROGRAMS, AND WHAT

THEY COULD MEAN FOR YOUR

PRIVACY.

Wendy: PLUS, AS THE

SYRIAN CIVIL WAR WAGES ON,

WE'LL LOOK AT A NEW U.N.

PROPOSAL TO BRING AID TO THE

MILLIONS OF SUFFERING.

Mark: AND A GROUP THAT

IS TEACHING TERRORISTS, LIKE

THE BOSTON MARATHON BOMBERS

ABOUT JIHAD.

NO ONE, THEY SAY, IS

LISTENING IN ON YOUR PHONE

CALLS.

GOOD EVENING, I'M MARK

MARTIN.

Wendy: AND I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

THAT IS WHAT PRESIDENT OBAMA

IS ASSURING THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE, THAT AS THE WHITE

HOUSE SPENT MUCH OF THE DAY

DEFENDING SHOCKING NEWLY

DISPOSED GOVERNMENT SPYING

PROGRAMS.

Mark: THE SHEAR SCOPE

OF THE SURVEILLANCE IS

MIND-BOGGLING TO MANY.

DALE HURD HAS MORE.

Reporter: THE TOP

SECRET DOCUMENT OBTAINED BY

THE "WASHINGTON POST" SHOWS

THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY

AND THE F.B.I. ARE TAPPING

DIRECTLY INTO THE CENTRAL

SERVERS OF NINE LEADING U.S.

INTERNET COMPANIES,

MONITORING AUDIO AND VIDEO

CHATS, PHOTOGRAPHS, E-MAILS,

DOCUMENTS, AND CONNECTION

LOGS THAT ENABLE ANALYSTS TO

TRACK FOREIGN TARGETS.

THE N.S.A. TECHNICALLY,

IS CAPABLE, UNDER THIS

ARRANGEMENT, OF PULLING

ANYTHING IT WANTS.

Reporter: THE PROGRAM

BEGAN UNDER PRESIDENT BUSH.

IT WAS EVEN THE PREMISE FOR

THE MOVIE "ENEMY OF THE

STATE" 15 YEARS AGO.

THE GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN

IN BED WITH THE ENTIRE

TELECOMMUNICATIONS AGENCIES

SINCE THE '40s.

THEY CAN GET INTO YOUR BANK

STATEMENTS, COMPUTER FILES,

E-MAIL, LISTEN TO YOUR PHONE

CALLS.

Reporter: THE N.S.A.

DENIED THE PROGRAM JUST

THREE MONTHS AGO.

DOES THE N.S.A. COLLECT

ANY TYPE OF DATA ON ALL ON

MILLIONS OR HUNDREDS OF

MILLIONS OF AMERICANS?

NO, SIR.

Reporter: THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION DEFENDED THE

PROGRAM, SAYING THAT

INFORMATION GATHERED AMONG

THE PROGRAM IS AMONG THE

MOST VALUABLE AND IMPORTANT

FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE WE

COLLECT.

BUT THIS IS WHAT PRESIDENT

OBAMA SAID ABOUT THE PROGRAM

UNDER PRESIDENT BUSH WHEN HE

WAS A SENATOR.

NO MORE ILLEGAL

WIRETAPPING OF THE AMERICAN

CITIZENS.

NO MORE NATIONAL SECURITY

LETTERS TO SPY ON CITIZENS

WHO ARE NOT SUSPECTED OF A

CRIME.

Reporter: SOME CALL IT

A CRITICAL TOOL AGAINST

TERRORISM.

WITHIN THE LAST FEW

YEARS, THERE WAS A DOMESTIC

CASE THAT WAS THWARTED

BECAUSE OF THEIR ABILITY TO

DO THIS.

Reporter: PRIVACY

ADVOCATES ARE OUTRAGED.

IT IS SWEEPING.

IT IS NOT WHAT I WOULD

EXPECT OUT OF THE UNITED

STATES.

I THINK THEY'VE REVOKED

MY PRIVACY RIGHTS BY DOING

THAT.

IF IT PREVENTS ME FROM

GETTING BLOWN UP, I'M ALL

FOR THE GOVERNMENT DOING

WHAT THEY REASONABLY SHOULD

DO.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE HAS DENOUNCED THE

DISCLOSURE OF THE SECRET

PROGRAM, SAYING AMERICA'S

SECURITY WILL SUFFER.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: STEVE MOTLEY IS

THE FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF

LESS GOVERNMENT, AND JOINS

US NOW FOR MORE ON THIS.

THE ADMINISTRATION SAYS

THESE SURVEILLANCE TACTICS

ARE PROTECTING AMERICA, BUT

OTHERS THINK THEY'RE JUST

INVADING AMERICA'S PRIVACY.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

WELL, I DON'T SEE HOW YOU

JUSTIFY A SWEEPING 3-MONTH

GRAB OF EVERY SINGLE PHONE

CALL OF THE LARGEST CELL

PHONE PROVIDER IN THE

COUNTRY AS SOME SORT OF

TARGETED, EFFECTIVE WAY TO

PROTECT AMERICA'S PRIVACY.

I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A

POLITICAL, VERSUS NATIONAL

SECURITY JUXTAPOSITION.

WE HAD EVIDENCE APLENTY ON

THE BOSTON MARATHON BOMBER,

AND WE IGNORED IT, RIGHT?

FOR POLITICAL REASONS,

BECAUSE HE IS A MUSLIM,

RUSSIA IS TELLING US HE IS A

PROBLEM, AND WE DIDN'T DO

ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

MEANWHILE, WE'RE TOLD

THEY'RE SWEEPING 113 MILLION

PHONE RECORDS FOR THREE

MONTHS IN THE INTEREST OF

NATIONAL SECURITY.

I WOULD ARGUE WHEN WE HAVE

EVIDENCE FOR NATIONAL

SECURITY AND WE DON'T DO

SOMETHING FOR POLITICAL

REASONS, MY CONCERN IS

THEY'RE COLLECTING

113 MILLION AMERICANS' PHONE

RECORDS FOR POLITICAL,

RATHER THAN NATIONAL,

SECURITY REASONS.

Wendy: I WAS TALKING TO

SOME FOLKS THIS MORNING, AND

THEY SAID IF THIS SO-CALLED

GOVERNMENT OVERREACH IS

GOING TO KEEP US ALL SAFER,

THEY'RE OKAY WITH IT.

THEY DON'T HAVE ANYTHING TO

HIDE.

I DON'T WANT TO LIVE IN A

COUNTRY WHERE THE GOVERNMENT

CAN KICK DOWN EVERY DOOR IN

THE HOPES OF CATCHING PEOPLE

DOING STUFF.

DODO YOU WANT TO BE AT HOME

DOING SOMETHING WRONG AND

HAVE THE FEDERAL POLICE OR

GOVERNMENT KICK THE DOOR IN

AND SAY OH, YOUR OKAY.

Wendy: DO YOU THINK

THIS WILL WAKE PEOPLE UP TO

THE ENORMITY OF WHAT THEY'VE

LOST IN TERMS OF THEIR

PRIVACY AND PERHAPS CAUSE A

PUBLIC BACKLASH.

WE'VE BEEN IN A DOWNWARD

ANTI-FREEDOM AND DECAY GOING

BACK 100 YEARS.

WE'RE RIGHT THERE.

I'VE BEEN THINKING FOR A

WHILE NOW, WITH THE

INTERNET, GOD'S GIFT TO

FREEDOM IS THE INTERNET, AS

FAR AS I'M CONCERNED,

CERTAINLY IN AMERICA.

I THINK WITH THE ADVENT OF

THAT, WITH ALTERNATIVE

MEDIA, GOD BLESS RUSH

LIMBAUGH FOR INVENTING TALK

RADIO.

IT IS SLOW, IT IS STEADY, IT

IS INCREMENTAL, BUT I THINK

WE MAY BE IN THE 100 YEARS

OF TRYING TO RESTORE WHAT WE

HAD WHEN WOODROW WILSON WAS

ELECTED, WHICH HE BEGAN TO

WHITTLE AWAY AT.

IT IS A LONG-ARKING TREND,

BUT I THINK WE'RE AT THE

VERY BEGINNING OF IT.

I THINK THIS HORIZON THING,

ALONG WITH THE INTERNET

COMPANY, WILL BE A HUGE

WAKEUP CALL TO ALL OF US.

Wendy: ALL RIGHT,

SETON, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

WE W APPRECIATE YOUR IN

SIGHT.

THANK YOU.

Mark: 170,000 JOBS WERE

ADDED TO THE U.S. ECONOMY,

DESPITE A RISE IN

UNEMPLOYMENT.

UNEMPLOYMENT ROSE FROM 7.5

TO 7.6% IN APRIL.

YET EMPLOYERS HAVE ADDED AN

AVERAGE OF 155,000 JOBS IN

THE PAST THREE MONTHS.

LAST MONTH'S GAIN ALMOST

MATCHES THE AVERAGE 12-MONTH

INCREASE OF 172,000 A

MONTH.

THE ECONOMY HAS GROWN AT AN

ANNUAL RATE OF 2.4% THIS

YEAR, BUT ECONOMISTS ARE

CONCERNED THAT SPENDING CUTS

AND HIGHER SOCIAL SECURITY

TAXES WILL SLOW THE RATE

NEXT QUARTER.

Wendy: A SENIOR I.R.S.

OFFICIAL HAS APOLOGIZED TO

CONGRESS FOR WASTING

TAXPAYER DOLLARS AT AN

EMPLOYEE CONFERENCE.

THE I.R.S. SPENT -- GET

THIS -- MORE THAN $4 MILLION

AT A TRAINING EVENT IN

ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA, THREE

YEARS AGO.

THE PERKS INCLUDED TICKETS

TO MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

GAMES, AND $64,000 WORTH OF

GIFTS FOR ATTENDEES.

AND THEY SPENT $50,000 TO

PRODUCE A STAR TREK VIDEO,

AND ANOTHER VIDEO OF I.R.S.

AGENTS DANCING.

THE HOUSE OVERSIGHT

COMMITTEE DARRELL ISSA

CALLED THE SPENDING

MALICIOUSLY SELF-INDULGENT.

THE I.R.S. AGENT FACED THE

WRATH OF CONGRESS TODAY.

I HAVE LOOKED AT THAT

VIDEO OVER AND OVER AGAIN,

AND I SWEAR I DO NOT SEE THE

REDEEMING VALUE.

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?

WERE YOU THINKING THIS WILL

NEVER BE SEEN?

FRANKLY, IT WAS NOT

APPROPRIATE AT THAT TIME,

NEITHER, MR. CHAIRMAN, AND

THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS

IT'S EMBARRASSING.

AND I APOLOGIZE.

Wendy: THAT HEARING WAS

ACTUALLY YESTERDAY, NOT

TODAY.

THE I.R.S. SPENT $49 MILLION

ON 225 EMPLOYEE CONFERENCES

OVER THE PAST THREE YEARS.

BUT THEY HAVE CUT CONFERENCE

SPENDING DRASTICALLY IN THE

LAST YEAR.

Mark: I HOPE SO.

PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HIS

CHINESE COUNTER-PART ARE

MEETING TODAY TO DISCUSS

FUTURE RELATIONS OF THE

COUNTRIES.

IT IS THE BEGINNING OF TWO

DAYS OF TALKS IN

CALIFORNIA.

ON THE AGENDA WILL LIKELY BE

NORTH KOREA'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAMME AND THE ECONOMY,

ALONG WITH AN EMPHASIS ON

CYBERSECURITY.

CHINA HAS PUBLICLY DENIED

SPYING ON THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT AND BUSINESSES,

BUT A RECENT PENTAGON REPORT

POINTED AT CHINA FOR A

NUMBER OF CYBERINTRUSIONS.

AND THE CYBER SECURITY FIRM

MANDIANT HAS LINKED A

CHINESE UNIT AGAINST

AMERICAN COMPANIES.

Wendy: THE U.S. IS

LAUNCHING ITS BIGGEST EFFORT

TO BRING AID TO THE MILLIONS

OF STRUGGLING PEOPLE DUE TO

THE SYRIAN WAR.

THEY SAY THE SITUATION IS

GOING DOWN QUICKLY THERE,

AND THEY NEED OVER

$5 BILLION TO FUND

OPERATIONS THROUGH THE END

OF 2013.

THE U.N. ESTIMATES NEARLY

SEVEN MILLION IS CIVILIANS

INSIDE SYRIA NEED HELP, AS

WELL AS MORE THAN

1.5 MILLION THAT HAVE FLED

TO NEIGHBORING COUNTRIES.

FUNDING FOR FOOD AND

MEDICINE REMAINS A TOP

PRIORITY FOR THE U.N.

Mark: FOR MORE OF THE

SITUATION IN SYRIA, WE TURN

TO SENIOR INTERNATIONAL

CORRESPONDENT GEORGE

THOMAS.

THE U.N. IS LAUNCHING THIS

EFFORT TO BRING AID TO

CIVILIANS IN SYRIA.

WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS LIKE

FOR THOSE IN SYRIA WHO HAVE

NOT YET FLED?

George: IT IS

HORRIBLE.

THE REALITY IS YOU HAVE A

SITUATION WHERE MORE THAN

HALF THE COUNTRY IS

SUFFERING.

YOU'VE GOT IMMENSE

DESTRUCTION.

YOU GO TO HOMES, THE SUBURBS

OF DAMASCUS, AND CLEARLY

THERE ARE HOMES THAT HAVE

BEEN COMPLETELY OBLITERATED,

AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS

HAVE MOVED TO IRAQ, LEBANON,

AND JORDAN.

THE ARTILLERY, AND THE

FIGHTING IS SO INTENSE, AND

THEY HAVE NOWHERE TO GO, SO

THE AID IS DESPERATELY

NEEDED.

Mark: THE SYRIAN

OPPOSITION GROUP HAS SAID

THE INVOLVEMENT OF HEZBOLLAH

IS TURNING THIS INTO A

SECTARIAN CONFLICT.

WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR THE

WAR?

George: PEOPLE NEED TO

UNDERSTAND WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT TERRORISTS FIGHTING

ANOTHER TERRORIST GROUP.

YOU HAVE HEZBOLLAH AND IRAN

ON ONE SIDE VERSUS

AL-QAEDA.

SO YOU HAVE TWO TERRORIST

ORGANIZATIONS FIGHTING EACH

OTHER FOR THE CONTROL OF

SYRIA.

SO IT IS A DICEY MIX.

SO THE QUESTION IS WHO DOES

THE UNITED STATES SUPPORT?

Mark: LET'S TALK ABOUT

ISRAEL.

YESTERDAY THEY MOVED TANKS

ALONG THE BORDER ON THE

GOLAN HEIGHTS.

SHOULD ISRAELIS BE CONCERNED

IT IS GOING TO CROSS THE

BORDER INTO THEIR COUNTRY?

George: THEY HAVE ALL

REASONS TO BE CONCERNED.

THE AUSTRIANS HAD ABOUT 390

U.N. PEACEKEEPERS IN THIS

BUFFER ZONE, KEEPING THE

SYRIANS ON ONE SIDE AND THE

ISRAELIS ON THE OTHER SIDE.

THE AUSTRIANS SAID WE'RE OUT

OF HERE.

THEY ARE LEAVING THE GOLAN

HEIGHTS BECAUSE THE FIGHTING

IS GETTING CLOSER AND CLOSER

TO THE ISRAELI BORDER.

THE ISRAELIS ARE MOVING

TANKS TO THE AREA TO SAY,

LISTEN, WE ARE MAKING A

BUFFER ZONE.

DON'T THINK ABOUT ALLOWING

THIS TO SPILL INTO OUR

LAND.

WE WILL HAVE TO RESPOND.

SO OBVIOUSLY THAT IS A BIG

CONCERN.

Mark: GEORGE, IS THERE

ANY END IN SIGHT, OR DO

THINGS HAVE TO GET WORSE

BEFORE THEY GET BETTER?

George: IT IS A HUGE

DILEMMA BECAUSE PARTLY THE

UNITED STATES DOES NOT KNOW

HOW TO DEAL WITH THE

SITUATION.

IF YOU LOOK AT HISTORICAL

ASPECTS, THE UNITED STATES,

IN THE MIDDLE EAST

SITUATION, HAS ALWAYS

INSERTED ITSELF SOMEHOW INTO

THE REGION.

TODAY IT IS TAKING A

HANDS-OFF APPROACH BECAUSE

THEY DON'T KNOW EXACTLY WHAT

TO DO.

SHOULD WE ARM, LIKE I SAID,

THE FREE SYRIAN REBELS?

WHO DO WE SUPPORT IN THIS

FIGHT?

AND SO THAT'S THE

CHALLENGE.

AND I THINK THE OPTION --

ALL OPTIONS ARE NOT GOOD,

BUT TRY TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO

BRING THIS TO A PEACEFUL

RESOLUTION DOESN'T SEEM TO

BE SOMETHING THAT CAN HAPPEN

VERY SOON.

Mark: GEORGE THOMAS,

OUR SENIOR INTERNATIONAL

CORRESPONDENT, THANKS.

Wendy: COMING UP, THE

SYSTEMS ARE CAUSING A WET

WEEKEND FOR MANY ALONG THE

EAST COAST.

Mark: TROPICAL STORM

ANDREA HAS MADE HER PRESENCE

KNOWN IN FLORIDA AND UP THE

EAST COAST.

Wendy: WE'RE FEELING IT

OUTSIDE.

ANDREA IS THE FIRST NAMED

STORM OF THE ATLANTIC

HURRICANE SYSTEM.

FOR MORE, WE TURN TO

KATELYN, REPORTING FROM THE

OCEANFRONT IN VIRGINIA

BEACH.

Reporter: THE WORST OF

TROPICAL STORM ANDREA ISN'T

EXPECTED TO HIT HERE IN

VIRGINIA BEACH UNTIL LATER

THIS EVENING.

BUT AS THE STORM WORKS ITS

WAY UP THE EAST COAST, FOLKS

AND ITS PATH HAVE SEEN HEAVY

RAINS, STRONG WINDS, FLOOD,

AND EVEN SOME TORNADOES.

PEOPLE IN FLORIDA ARE

ALREADY CLEANING UP.

65 MILE-AN-HOUR WINDS,

SENDING RESIDENTS

SCRAMBLING.

THIS DRAMATIC SURVEILLANCE

VIDEO CAPTURED THE MOMENT A

TORNADO RIPPED THROUGH A

POPULAR RESTAURANT IN GULF

PORT.

THIS HAPPENED WHILE WE

WERE CLOSED, THANK

GOODNESS.

NOBODY WAS INJURED.

Reporter: ANOTHER

TORNADO TORE THROUGH

LUXAHASI.

I HEARD IT AND I GRABBED

HER AND WE GOT INTO MY

CLOSET.

Reporter:

METEOROLOGISTS DON'T EXPECT

IT TO TURN INTO A HURRICANE,

BUT MAJOR FLOODING IS A

CONCERN.

FLASH-FLOODING HAS BEEN

ISSUED FROM GEORGIA TO MAINE

FOR MUCH OF THE WEEKEND.

IT COULD OVERFLOW SEWERS AND

CAUSE CREEKS TO FLOOD.

NEW JERSEY OFFICIALS ARE

TAKING NO CHANCES.

DAMAGE FROM SUPER STORM

SANDY IS STILL ON THEIR

MIND.

ANDREA SHOULD CONTINUE TO

WEAKEN THROUGHOUT THE

AFTERNOON AND EVENING, BUT

THE STORM WILL SOAK MILLIONS

BY THE TIME IT HAS RUN ITS

COURSE.

KATELYN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Mark: THE BATTLE

BETWEEN RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

AND GAY RIGHTS IS SHAPING UP

IN COLORADO.

A GAY COUPLE HAS FILED A

DISCRIMINATION COMPLAINT

AGAINST A BAKERY.

THE OWNER, JACK PHILLIPS,

REFUSED TO SELL THEM A

WEDDING CAKE BECAUSE OF HIS

CHRISTIAN FAITH.

THE COUPLE PLAN TO MARRY IN

MASSACHUSETTS AND CELEBRATE

IN COLORADO, WHERE CIVIL

UNIONS ARE LEGAL.

COLORADO'S CIVIL UNIONS LAW

DOES NOT PROVIDE RELIGIOUS

PROTECTION FOR BUSINESSES.

PHILLIPS COULD FACE A $500

FINE IF HE LOSES THE CASE

AND DOES NOT COMPLY WITH THE

ORDER.

HE COULD ALWAYS GO TO JAIL

FOR UP TO A YEAR.

HIS ATTORNEY SAYS, QUOTE,"IT

WOULD FORCE HIM TO CHOOSE

BETWEEN HIS CONSCIENCE AND A

PAYCHECK.

I JUST THINK THAT IS AN

INTOLERABLE CHOICE."

Wendy: UP NEXT, A

RADICAL MOSQUE IN THE MIDDLE

OF ONE OF AMERICA'S BIGGEST

CITIES.

WE'LL SHOW YOU WHERE.

WHERE.

Wendy: WELCOME BACK.

A FEW YEARS AGO F.B.I.

AGENTS UNCOVERED DOCUMENTS

REVEALING THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD STRATEGY TO

TRANSFORM AMERICA INTO AN

ISLAMIC STATE.

THE KEY PART OF THE PLAN

CALLS FOR AMERICAN MUSLIM

GROUPS TO PROMOTE THE

BROTHERHOOD'S RADICAL

MESSAGE.

Mark: IN TONIGHT'S

FOCUS REPORT, ERICK

STAKELBECK LOOKS AT HOW ONE

OF THOSE GROUPS IS SPREADING

ITS INFLUENCE IN A CITY THAT

RECENTLY EXPERIENCED A

DEADLY ISLAMIC TERROR

ATTACK.

Reporter: U.S.

AUTHORITIES ARE STILL

PIECING TOGETHER HOW THE TWO

BROTHERS BEHIND THE RECENT

BOSTON MARATHON BOMBINGS

BECAME ISLAMIC TERRORISTS.

TAM TSARNAEV HAD TRAVELLED

TO al-QAEDA HOT BEDS IN

RUSSIA, WHERE AUTHORITIES

THINK HE MAY HAVE MET WITH

TERRORISTS.

CLOSER TO HOME, HE AND HIS

BROTHER ATTENDED A MOSQUE

WITH RADICAL TIES.

THE FACT IS THESE FELLOWS

ATTENDED, JUST BLOCKS FROM

THEIR HOUSE, A RADICAL

MOSQUE THAT HAS BEEN THE

CENTER OF CONTROVERSY IN

BOSTON FOR 10 YEARS.

Reporter: CHARLES

JACOBS LEADS "AMERICANS FOR

PEACE AND TOLERANCE," A

GROUP THAT HAS CLOSELY

MONITORED ISLAMIC ACTION IN

THE AREA.

HE SAID THE ISLAMIC SOCIETY

OF ISLAM --

THE FOUNDER OF THAT

MOSQUE WAS ABDUL RAMAN

ALAMUDI.

HE IS THE MODEL OF DECEPTION

IN AMERICAN HISTORY.

HE CONVINCED PRESIDENT

CLINTON AND ALSO PRESIDENT

BUSH THAT HE WAS PRECISELY

THE KIND OF MODERATE MUSLIM

LEADER THAT AMERICA WAS

LOOKING FOR.

IN FACT, HE DECEIVED

EVERYONE.

HE IS NOW IN JAIL FOR 23

YEARS FOR GIVING MONEY FOR

FUNDING AL-QAEDA.

Reporter: OTHER

WORSHIPPERS AT THE MOSQUE

HAVE INCLUDED SADIKI, AN

al-QAEDA MEMBER CONVICTED

OF PLOTTING ATTACKS ON NEW

YORK CITY.

AND al-SANA, PLANNING TO

ATTACK A BOSTON SHOPPING

MALL.

A FORMER TRUSTEE OF THE

MOSQUE IS A MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD LEADER WHO IS

BANNED FROM ENTERING THE

UNITED STATES.

JACOB STRESSED IT IS UNCLEAR

WHETHER THE MOSQUE PLAYED

ANY ROLE IN THE TSARNAEV

BROTHER'S RADICALIZATION.

BUT HE VISITED THE MOSQUE IN

2003 AND WAS SHOCKED BY WHAT

HE FOUND.

TELL US WHAT YOU FOUND

THERE FIRSTHAND.

IT IS ELABORATE, AND IT

IS FULL OF FLIERS AND FULL

OF LITERATURE AND THEY CALL

FOR JIHAD AGAINST THE JEWS

AND THE CHRISTIANS.

THERE WAS A SHEIKH GIVING A

CEREMONY, AND THE SHEIKH WAS

AS FANATIC AT THE

MATERIALS.

Reporter: THE GROUP

BEHIND THE CAMBRIDGE MOSQUE

IS CALLED "THE MUSLIM

AMERICAN SOCIETY," OR

M.A.S.

IT WAS FOUNDED IN 1993 BY

MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD MEMBERS.

FEDERAL PRO PROSECUTORS

HAVE CALLED M.A.S., THE

OVERT ARM OF THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IN AMERICA.

THEY ARE DEDICATED TO

ESTABLISHIN ESTABLISHING

SHARI'A LAW WORLDWIDE.

IT OPENED ANOTHER MOSQUE

JUST A FEW MILES FROM THE

CAMBRIDGE LOCATION.

THE ISLAMIC SOCIETY OF

BOSTON CULTURAL CENTER IS

THE SECOND LARGEST MOSQUE ON

THE ENTIRE EAST COAST.

IT COST $15.5 MILLION TO

BUILD, AND MORE THAN HALF OF

THAT MONEY REPORTEDLY CAME

FROM SAUDI ARABIA.

THE ROXBURY MEGA MOSQUE IS

THE SISTER MOSQUE TO THE ONE

IN CAMBRIDGE.

THEY SHARE EXACT

LEADERSHIP.

THEY'RE OWNED BY THE SAME

PEOPLE, THE MOSQUE AMERICAN

SOCIETY, THE TRUSTEES ARE

THE SAME.

THEY MAY HAVE DIFFERENT DAY

TO DAY MANAGEMENT, BUT IT IS

THE SAME.

Reporter: JACOBS SAYS

THE TWO MASS MOSQUES SHARE

THE SAME RADICAL BROTHERHOOD

IDEOLOGY.

YET DEVAL PATRICK, AND

BOSTON MAYOR TOM MENINO,

BOTH ENDORSED THE ROXBURY

MOSQUE WHEN IT OPENED IN

2009.

JACOB'S ORGANIZATION SHOWED

A VIDEO SHOWING GOVERNOR

PATRICK PUBLICLY EMBRACING

AN IMAM.

AND MONTHS EARLIER, THAT

IMAM HAD ENCOURAGED

WORSHIPPERS TO ENGAGE IN

VIOLENCE.

GRAB ON TO THE

TYPEWRITER, GRAB ON TO THE

GUN AND THE SWORD.

DON'T BE AFRAID TO STEP OUT

INTO THIS WORLD AND DO YOUR

JOB.

Reporter: JACOBS WAS

ENCOURAGED RECENTLY WHEN

GOVERNOR PATRICK DISINVITED

THE IMAM FROM AN EVENT

HONORING THE VICTIMS OF THE

BOSTON MARATHON ATTACKS.

CBN REQUESTED AN INTERVIEW

FROM THE LEADERS OF THE

MOSQUE, BUT THEY DECLINED.

LOCAL MOSQUE SOURCES TOLD

CBN NEWS THAT FOLLOWERS OF

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD HAVE

ALSO TRIED TO TAKE OVER

OTHER MOSQUES IN THE BOSTON

AREA.

DR. MANSUR CALLS IT A

NATIONWIDE PROBLEM.

THEY ARE USING THE

AMERICAN CONSTITUTION, THE

AMERICAN VALUES OF FREEDOM

OF BELIEF AND FREEDOM OF

SPEECH, AND THE AMERICAN

MOSQUES.

Reporter: ERICK

STAKELBECK, CBN NEWS,

BOSTON.

Mark: UP NEXT, MIRACLES

AND MORE.

HOW GOD IS MOVING AFTER THAT

DEVASTATING OKLAHOMA

TORNADO.

.

Mark:

"OPERATION BLESSING" WORKERS

STILL HELPING PEOPLE GET

THEIR LIVES BACK TOGETHER IN

MOORE, OKLAHOMA.

THE AREA HIT BY THAT MASSIVE

TORNADO.

Wendy: YEAH, AND

THEY'RE HEARING STORIES OF

SMALL MIRACLES.

O.B. SPOKE WITH THE PASTOR

ON THE EAST SIDE OF MOORE.

HE SAYS EVEN THOUGH HIS

COMMUNITY WAS DEVASTATED,

THERE HAVE BEEN SOME

POWERFUL GOD MOMENTS.

ONE OF OUR CHURCH MEMBERS

THAT WE LOVE SO MUCH, CINDY,

SHE WAS KILLED IN THE

STORM.

SEVERAL DAYS AFTER WE HAD

HER MEMORIAL SERVICE, I GOT

A CALL FROM A MAN WHO WAS

VOLUNTEERING, WHO WAS

HELPING A FEW BLOCKS FROM

WHERE CINDY LIVED.

AND HE FOUND A BIBLE, A

BIBLE IN A BIBLE CASE, AND

IT HAD CINDY'S NAME ON IT,

AND IT HAD SOME INFORMATION

ABOUT THE CHURCH.

HE DID SOME RESEARCH AND HE

CALLED ME AND SAID, I HAVE A

BIBLE I WANT TO GIVE TO

YOU.

AND SO I CALLED CINDY'S SON

AND HE JUST BEGAN TO WEEP.

THINKING ABOUT HOW SPECIAL

THIS BIBLE WAS TO HIS MOTHER

AND HOW SHE CARRIED IT WITH

HER EVERYWHERE.

Wendy: OH, THAT'S SO

TOUCHING.

WELL, "OPERATION BLESSING"

CREWS CONTINUE TO HELP

RESIDENTS CLEAN UP DEBRIS

AND REPAIR DAMAGE.

Mark: VOLUNTEERS ARE

ALSO OFFERING EMOTIONAL AND

SPIRITUAL SUPPORT THROUGH

HUGS AND PRAYERS.

AND THAT IS SO NEEDED RIGHT

NOW.

Wendy: IT REALLY IS.

THEY'RE NOT OUT OF THE WOODS

YET.

Mark: THAT'S IT FOR

THIS EDITION OF

"NEWSWATCH."
