George: TODAY ON

CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS, HE HAD

A HUGE IMPACT ON THE WORLD'S

BIGGEST COUNTRY, BUT YOU'VE

PROBABLY NEVER HEARD OF

HIM.

WE CELEBRATE A HERO OF THE

UNDERGROUND CHURCH.

PLUS, STUNNING IMAGES FROM

INSIDE CHINA.

SEE FOR YOURSELF THE AMAZING

REVIVAL TAKING PLACE IN

CHINA'S COUNTRYSIDE.

AND OUR VISIT TO RWANDA, 20

YEARS AFTER THE GENOCIDE

THAT KILLED NEARLY ONE

MILLION PEOPLE IN 100 DAYS.

THIS EAST AFRICAN NATION IS

NOW THRIVING.

A HERO OF THE FAITH ENTERS

ETERNITY.

HELLO, EVERYONE, I'M GEORGE

THOMAS.

MY COLLEAGUE, WENDY GRIFFITH

IS ON ASSIGNMENT.

YOU MAY NOT HAVE KNOWN HIM

OR HIS NAME, SAMUEL LAMB,

BUT HE WAS A HERO FOR THE

CHRISTIAN FAITH FOR MILLIONS

INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF

CHINA.

AND HE PASSED AWAY ON

AUGUST 3rd AT THE AGE OF

88.

HE SPENT 20 YEARS IN THE

CHINESE LABOR CAMPS.

HE WAS ARRESTED IN THE FIRST

WAVE OF CHAIRMAN MAO'S

CRACKDOWNS.

AFTER HE RELEASE, HE FORMED

THE UNDERGROUND CHURCH

HOUSES.

ONE OF HIS FAVORITE THEMES

IS WHAT HE CALLED THE HOLY

PRINCIPLE, "MORE

PERSECUTION, MORE GROWTH."

GARY LANE MET HIM ON ONE OF

HIS MANY TRIPS TO CHINA, AND

HE JOINS ME NOW.

SAMUEL LAMB WAS A

SIGNIFICANT PLAYER AND THE

SO-CALLED UNDERGROUND CHURCH

MOVEMENT.

Reporter: YES, HE WAS,

BECAUSE HE STOOD UP TO THE

CHINESE GOVERNMENT.

HE SAID, NO, WE WILL NOT DO

THAT.

WE WILL OWE OUR ALLEGIANCE

TO GOD, NOT TO THE STATE OR

THE COMMUNISTS.

WE'LL BE OBEDIENT TO THE

LORD AND FOLLOW HIM.

George: HE SAW

PERSECUTION NOT NECESSARILY

AS A BAD THING.

Reporter: NO, HE

DIDN'T.

AND I ASKED HIM ABOUT THAT.

HE SAID, BROTHER GARY, LET

ME TELL YOU.

BEFORE I WENT TO PRISON, WE

HAD 200 MEMBERS IN OUR

CHURCH.

I GOT OUT OF PRISON AFTER 20

YEARS, AND CHURCH HAD GROWN

TO 900 MEMBERS.

THEN THE CHINESE AUTHORITIES

CAME AND CONFISCATED THE

CHURCH, AND THE CHURCH GREW

TO 2,000.

HE SMILED THAT RADIANT SMILE

AND SAID, "PERSECUTION GOOD

FOR CHURCH."

George: DO YOU THINK

THAT IS HIS LEGACY?

Reporter: I THINK THAT

IS HIS LEGACY.

HE USED TO SAY, "MORE

PERSECUTION, MORE GROWTH."

HE REALIZED THE CHURCH WOULD

GROW STRONGER THROUGH THE

PERSECUTION.

George: HE MENTORED

OVER THE YEARS, MANY, MANY

PEOPLE, AND THE CHURCH TODAY

IS EXPERIENCING TREMENDOUS

GROWTH.

Reporter: TREMENDOUS

GROWTH.

MANY, MANY MORE PEOPLE

COMING TO CHRIST.

AND MANY OF THE CHURCHES ARE

NOW ABOVE GROUND.

SOME ARE STILL HAVING

PROBLEMS WITH THE

AUTHORITIES, BUT THE CHURCH

IS THRIVING.

George: AND THE

GOVERNMENT SEEMS TO HAVE

RELAXED SOME OF ITS

REGULATIONS OR

RESTRICTIONS?

I WOULD SAY A LITTLE

BIT.

MORE THE PERSECUTION IS

COMING FROM LOCAL POLICE,

AND THERE IS STILL

PERSECUTION ON THE FEDERAL

LEVEL, BUT IT IS NOT THE

SAME AS WHAT SH HE

EXPERIENCED IN THE '50s.

George: I KNOW IT WAS A

PRIVILEGE FOR YOU TO HAVE

MET THIS INCREDIBLE LEADER.

Reporter: AN INCREDIBLE

MAN AND INCREDIBLE LEGACY.

George: CHINESE VAST

COUNTRYSIDE IS EXPERIENCING

A POWERFUL MOVE OF GOD.

CBN NEWS HAS OBTAINED

PICTURES FROM INSIDE THE

COUNTRY OF THIS AMAZING

REVIVAL, INCLUDING FROM

THESE CHINESE WHO ARE

WITNESSING MANY MIRACLES

FIRSTHAND.

HE SAYS THESE VIDEOS ARE

CAPTURED ON HIS HOME VIDEO

CAMERA ARE PROOF THAT GOD IS

MOVING IN CHINA.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME

YOU'RE SEEING PICTURES OF

CHRISTIANS FROM THE VILLAGES

OPENLY EMBRACING GOD.

George: JUAN GAVE CBN

NEWS EXCLUSIVE ACCESS TO

HOURS OF VIDEO AND PICTURES

TAKEN IN DOZENS OF LOCATIONS

ACROSS CHINA.

THEY SHOW ONE THING IN

COMMON: MEN AND WOMEN OF ALL

AGES BEING TOUCHED BY THE

POWER OF GOD.

EVERYWHERE I GO I MEET

PEOPLE WHO ARE MUN HUNGRY

GOD AND HE IS SHOWING UP.

George: JUAN AND HIS

WIFE ARE FULL-TIME

EVANGELISTS.

THEY HAVE CRISS-CROSSED THE

CHINESE HEARTLAND, PREACHING

ABOUT JESUS CHRIST.

LIFE IS OFTEN DIFFICULT.

George: DIFFICULT, YET

SIMPLE IN MANY WAYS.

JUAN SHOWED US HOW PEOPLE

ARE BAPTIZED IN RURAL AREAS

AFTER THEY ACCEPT CHRIST

INTO THEIR LIVES.

SOMETIMES I BAPTIZE THEM

IN A LAKE, AND SOMETIMES AT

THE BACK OF A PICKUP TRUCK.

VERY OFTEN WE HAVE TO

IMPROVISE.

George: IT WAS HERE IN

THE COUNTRYSIDE THAT

CHRISTIANITY BEGAN DECADES

AGO.

MOST OF THE RURAL CHRISTIANS

ARE WOMEN, MEETING IN

GOVERNMENT-SANCTIONED

CHURCHES OR IN SO-CALLED

HOUSE CHURCHES.

THE YOUNG AND OLDER MEN

HAVE MOVED TO THE BIG CITIES

TO MOVE FOR JOBS.

SO MOST OF THOSE WHO ATTEND

THESE SERVICES ARE OLDER

WOMEN.

George: , MIND YOU,

SHARING THE GOSPEL IN CHINA

IS STILL FORBIDDEN.

I WAS ARRESTED HERE A

NUMBER OF TIMES.

THE GOVERNMENT DOESN'T ALLOW

PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN ONE CITY

TO TRAVEL TO ANOTHER CITY.

George: DESPITE THE

GOVERNMENT RESTRICTIONS,

CHINA-WATCHERS SAY WHAT IS

HAPPENING SPIRITUALLY IN THE

COUNTRY IS NOTHING SHORT OF

REMARKABLE.

THERE ARE STILL MASSES OF

CONVERTS EVERY DAY IN THE

COUNTRYSIDE.

IT IS VERY ENCOURAGING.

George: THIS MAN, WHOM

WE'LL CALL PETER, HAS WORKED

WITH CHINA'S UNDERGROUND

CHURCHES FOR DECADES.

CBN NEWS AGREED TO CONCEAL

HIS IDENTITY TO PROTECT

HIM.

SO MANY PEASANTS IN SO

MANY PLACES ARE COMING TO

CHRIST IN LARGE NUMBERS.

CHURCHES IN MANY OF THOSE

CASES ARE MATURING AND

GETTING BEYOND SIMPLE

EVANGELISM, AND REACHING OUT

TO UNREACHED PEOPLE GROUPS.

TODAY IS COMMUNIST

CHINA'S NEW AND GLOBAL MAN

MANIFESTO.

George: IT IS A FAR CRY

FROM THE DARK DAYS OF

CULTURAL REVOLUTION.

THIS MAN HEADS THE CENTER

FOR RELIGIONS AT A CHINESE

UNIVERSITY.

AT THAT TIME, ALL

CHURCHES AND MOSQUES WERE

CLOSED, AND NO PUBLIC

RELIGIOUS SERVICE WAS

ALLOWED.

George: CHINESE

GOVERNMENT DATA AND

INTERNATIONAL SURVEYS NOW

REPORT MILLIONS OF CHINESE

PEOPLE FLOCKING TO RELIGIONS

LIKE CHRISTIANITY, BUDDHIST,

TAOISM, AND ISLAM.

BUT IT IS CHRISTIANITY THAT

IS EXPERIENCING THE MOST

DRAMATIC GROWTH.

CBN NEWS OBTAINED THIS MAP,

SHOWING THE STUNNING PICTURE

OF CHRISTIANITY'S EXPLOSION

ACROSS CHINA'S CITIES,

COUNTIES, AND VILLAGES.

IF THE CURRENT TREND

KEEPS AT THE CURRENT PEACE,

I THINK IT IS LIKELY IN THE

NEXT 30 OR 40 YEARS THE

NUMBER OF CHRISTIANS IN

CHINA WILL REACH A HIGH

NUMBER, PERHAPS SIMILAR TO

THE U.S. OR BRAZIL.

George: JUAN SAYS THE

PREACHING OF THE WORD OF GOD

IN THE COUNTRYSIDE IS

USUALLY FOLLOWED BY MIRACLES

AND HEALINGS.

PEOPLE WHO COULD NEVER

WALK BEFORE BEGAN WALKING.

THE BLIND SEE.

I'VE EVEN WITNESSED A MAN

BEING RAISED FROM THE DEAD.

WE SEE AMAZING MIRACLES EACH

TIME WE TRAVEL.

George: JUAN IS A

WALKING MIRACLE HIMSELF.

IN THE LATE '90s, HE AND

HIS WIFE LIVED IN BUDAPEST,

RUNNING A SUCCESSFUL

CLOTHING COUNTRY.

WE WERE MAKING LOTS OF

MONEY AND LIVING THE HIGH

LIFE.

BUT I DIDN'T KNOW THE LORD.

I SOON REALIZED I NEEDED

SOMETHING MORE THAN MATERIAL

SUCCESS.

I EVENTUALLY GAVE MY HEART

TO THE LORD.

George: SIX MONTHS

AFTER GIVING HIS LIFE OVER

TO JESUS CHRIST, JUAN WAS

ATTACKED BY MEMBERS OF A

MAFIA TEAM BASED IN

BUDAPEST.

HE SHOWS US THE KNIFE SCARS

ON HIS BACK, ARMS, AND

STOMACH, THAT HE SAYS SERVE

AS REMINDERS OF GOD'S

PROTECTION AND

FAITHFULNESS.

I WAS STABBED OVER 50

TIMES AND ALMOST LOST MY

LIFE.

BUT I KNOW GOD SPARED ME FOR

A REASON.

George: AND THIS IS IT,

THE OPPORTUNITY TO REACH THE

REMOTE PARTS OF THIS GREAT

LAND, WITH A MESSAGE OF HOPE

AND SALVATION FOUND IN JESUS

CHRIST.

I PREACH IN THE

GOVERNMENT-SANCTIONED

CHURCHES AND HOUSE CHURCHES,

AND IN BOTH PLACES, GOD IS

MOVING IN A POWERFUL WAY.

MY PRAYER IS THAT ONE DAY

EVERYONE IN OUR NATION WILL

HEAR ABOUT JESUS CHRIST.

George: INCREDIBLE.

IF THE CURRENT NUMBERS KEEP

AT PACE, CHINA COULD SOON

BECOME THE WORLD'S LARGEST

CHRISTIAN NATION.

ON TO SOME OTHER NEWS.

THE FAMILY OF AN AMERICAN

CHRISTIAN DETAINED IN NORTH

KOREA FOR THE PAST NINE

MONTHS IS RENEWING CALLS FOR

HIS RELEASE, AMID GROWING

CONCERNS ABOUT HIS HEALTH.

KENNETH BAE IS A TOUR

OPERATOR, AND HE WAS

ARRESTED LAST NOVEMBER AND

ACCUSED OF HOSTILE ACTS

AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT.

HE HAS BEEN SENTENCED TO 15

YEARS OF HARD LABOR.

HIS SISTER SAYS HIS RECENT

LETTERS HOME HAVE PORTRAYED

TROUBLING HEALTH

CONDITIONS.

UP NEXT, WE TAKE YOU TO THE

LAND OF A THOUSAND HILLS TO

SEE HOW RWANDA IS MOVING

PAST THE HORRORS OF GENOCIDE

AND BECOMING A THRIVING NEW

NATION.

George: JUST 20 YEARS

AGO, RWANDA WAS IN RUINS

AFTER A BRUTAL GENOCIDE, BUT

NOW IT HAS BECOME ONE OF

AFRICA'S SURPRISING SUCCESS

STORIES.

ONE REASON?

IT IS HOME-GROWN

ENTREPRENEURS, SOME OF WHOM

ARE TRAINED BY A PROGRAM

STARTED RIGHT HERE AT CBN.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM JOINS US FROM

REGENT UNIVERSITY CAMPUS.

Reporter: GEORGE,

REGENT UNIVERSITY IS HELPING

HUNDREDS OF REWA REWANDAN'S

TURN BRIGHT IDEAS INTO

GLOBAL BUSINESSES.

AND FROM RIGHT HERE IN

VIRGINIA BEACH, ITS STUDENTS

AND FACULTY ARE MAKING A

HUGE IMPACT ON THE LIVES OF

PEOPLE MORE THAN 7,000 MILES

AWAY IN KAGALI.

RWANDA WAS ONCE CALLED A

TROPICAL SWITZERLAND IN THE

HEART OF AFRICA.

TODAY THAT BEAUTY HAS

RETURNED TO THE LANDSCAPE

AND TO THE FACES IN THIS

EAST AFRICAN NATION.

WHEN YOU LOOK AROUND IN

TOWN, YOU CAN SEE THE

COUNTRY HAS A DIRECTION.

Reporter: MANY CREDIT

PRESIDENT PAUL KAGAMI FOR

GIVING THE COUNTRY THAT

DIRECTION.

TO WANT A PROSPEROUS

NATION, TO WANT YOUR PEOPLE

TO HAVE OWNERSHIP.

Reporter: IT WAS KAGAMI

THAT LED HIS PEOPLE OUT OF

GENOCIDE IN 1994.

THIS LAND OF A THOUSAND

HILLS, WITH NEARLY A MILLION

PEOPLE KILLED IN JUST 100

DAYS OF ETHNIC VIOLENCE.

DURING THAT TIME, SERGE

RETURNED AND JOINED THE ARMY

IN FIGHTING.

THERE WAS SO MANY

PROBLEMS GOING ON.

AT ONE TIME, YOU HAVE ONE

GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO ARE

KILLING THE OTHER.

AND YOU HAVE ANOTHER GROUP

OF PEOPLE WHO ARE WORKING

LAR HARD TO STOP THE

KILLING AND TO BRING BACK SO

MANY RWANDANS WHO WERE

LIVING OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY.

ONE THING I'M PROUD OF BEING

RWANDAN, WE SOLVE OUR OWN

PROBLEMS.

Reporter: SERGE IS

HELPING BOOST HIS COUNTRY'S

GROWING ECONOMY.

HE OWNERS JAYLIN'S BAKERY, A

SPOT FOR TOURISTS AND

RWANDAN TRANSPLANTS TO

CONGREGATE.

AND TO GRAB A FRESH BAGEL.

IT IS ONLY TWO AND A HALF

MONTHS THAT WE'RE HERE AND

IT IS A SUCCESS.

Reporter: HE BEGAN

WRITING HIS BUSINESS PLAN AS

A STUDENT AT B.B.C.

IT IS A HANDS-ON, 14-WEEK

SCHOOL CREATED BY REGENT

UNIVERSITY'S CENTER FOR

ENTREPRENEURSHIP.

IT CHANGED WHAT I LEARNED

OR KNEW ABOUT BUSINESS.

ONE PARTICULAR THING I

REMEMBER IS THAT THEY TAUGHT

US TO DO BUSINESS NOT FROM

OUR HEAD, BUT FROM OUR

HEART.

Reporter: SERGE IS ONE

OF 200 ENTREPRENEURS WHO

LEARNED TO BUILD A

SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS AT THE

REGENT DEVELOPMENT CENTER

HERE IN RWANDA.

THAT KIND OF SUCCESS HAS

ALLOWED THE SCHOOL TO EXPAND

TO UGANDA AND RWANDA.

THE GOVERNMENT HERE IN

RWANDA THREW THE DOOR OPEN

AND SAID, WE WANT TO BE THE

FIRST.

SO THEY HELPED MAKE THAT

HAPPEN.

WE'RE AMONG THE TOP AND

FASTEST GROWING ECONOMIES IN

AFRICA.

AND A PLACE WHERE DOING

BUSINESS IS JUST

CONVENIENT.

Reporter: JUM BUSCO IS

THE DEVELOPMENT CENTER'S

C.E.O.

HE IS ALSO A GRADUATE, WITH

TWO SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES.

OUR AIM IS TO MAKE SURE

THAT THE GRADUATE HAS

AVAILABLE AND A PROFITABLE

BUSINESS.

Reporter: THE B.B.C.

PAIRS GRADUATES WITH MENTORS

FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

JUM BOSCO SEES AN EVEN

BIGGER LESSON TAUGHT BY THE

SCHOOL.

HOW DO YOU GIVE BACK TO

THE COMMUNITY?

HOW DO YOU SUPPORT THESE

INDIVIDUALS TO REACH THEIR

FULL POTENTIAL.

Reporter: THAT LESSON

COMES TO LIFE BACK AT

JAYLIN'S BAKERY.

THE SHOP IS NAMED AFTER HIS

WIFE, WHO CAME TO RWANDA

FROM CANADA AS A

MISSIONARY.

I REMEMBER THEY SAID IT

IS GOOD TO FIND A BUSINESS

THAT YOU HAVE THE SKILL, OR

YOU KNOW PEOPLE WHO WILL

WORK WITH YOU WHO HAVE THE

SKILL.

AND I REMEMBERED THAT IN MY

OWN FAMILY I HAVE A WIFE WHO

IS AN EXCELLENT BAKER.

IT WAS JUST, LIKE, HERE

IS A GIFT FROM GOD.

THAT'S HOW WE'RE TREATING

THIS PLACE, IT'S A GIFT.

SO WE'RE RESPONSIBLE FOR

THAT.

Reporter: SERGE AND

JENNIFER EMPLOY 20 PEOPLE,

17 OF THEM STRUGGLING WOMEN.

THEY ALL COME FROM

SITUATIONS WHERE THEY WOULD

NOT BE ABLE TO PAY THE RENT,

PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE OR PAY

FOR SCHOOL FEES FOR THEIR

CHILDREN.

THEY EARN A SMALL SALARY

HERE, AND WE HELP THEM OUT

WITH THEIR MEDICAL NEEDS ON

TOP OF THAT.

Reporter: AS THEY LEARN

TO MAKE COOKIES, CAKES AND

CUPCAKES, SERGE AND JENNIFER

WORK --

TO GET THEM TO DREAM.

TO KNOW THEY HAVE A ROLE IN

THE KINGDOM.

IT IS NOT ABOUT MAKING MONEY

AT ALL.

Reporter: THIS BAKERY

IS A MINI BUSINESS

DEVELOPMENT CENTER.

THE SAME SORT OF

FOUNDATION.

IN 18 MONTHS TO TWO YEARS,

THEY HAVE A FEASIBLE

BUSINESS PLAN.

AND THEY CAN GO AND

IMPLEMENT THEIR BUSINESS,

AND WE'LL HELP THEM DO THAT

WITH WHATEVER -- IF THEY

SAVE SOME CAPITAL, WE ADD TO

IT.

WHATEVER THAT LOOKS LIKE,

THEY CAN START THEIR OWN

ENTREPRENEURIAL BUSINESSES.

IT IS GREAT THAT THEY WORK

HERE.

I LOVE EACH ONE OF THEM, YOU

KNOW, BUT I WANT THEM TO

MOVE BEYOND ME.

Reporter: IT IS A

CONCEPT THAT CAN ONLY ADD TO

THE COUNTRY'S BEAUTY.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS,

KAGALI, RWANDA.

George: COMING UP,

THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN

CHRISTIANS SHOW THEIR

SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL AS THE

JEWISH STATE WARNS THAT THE

THREAT FROM IRAN GROWS

STRONGER.

George: AND WELCOME

BACK TO CHRISTIAN WORLD

NEWS.

ISRAEL'S PRIME MINISTER,

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU, IS

WARNING THE WORLD OF THE

DANGER OF IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

HE SAYS IF THE WEST WON'T

ACT, ISRAEL WILL.

NETANYAHU SPOKE TO A GROWING

GROUP OF AMERICAN CHRISTIANS

WHO ARE PASSIONATE IN THEIR

SUPPORT FOR THE JEWISH

STATE.

CBN NEWS TERRORISM ANALYST

ERICK STAKELBECK REPORTS

FROM THE CHRISTIANS UNITED

FOR ISRAEL CONFERENCE.

THOUSANDS OF PRO ISRAEL

SUPPORTERS GATHERED IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. THIS WEEK

FOR THE EIGHTH ANNUAL

CHRISTIANS UNITED FOR ISRAEL

SUMMIT.

PRIME MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU SPOKE TO THE CROWD

VIA SATELLITE.

AFTER THANKING THE THEM FOR

THEIR UNWAVERING SUPPORT, HE

WARNED THAT ISRAEL ISN'T THE

ONLY TARGET OF IRAN'S

NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM.

THOSE WEAPONS AREN'T

PREPARED TO LAUNCH AGAINST

ISRAEL.

THEY ALREADY HAVE MISSILES

THAT CAN HIT ISRAEL.

THOSE ARE INTENDED FOR YOU,

TO HIT THE UNITED STATES.

AND THEY COULD HAVE THEM

VERY SOON.

Reporter: THE SUMMIT

ATTRACTED THOUSANDS OF

PRO-ISRAEL HEAVY-HITTERS AND

LAWMAKERS.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE

WORLD ARE REGIMES FROM

TEHRAN, TO THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IN CAIRO THAT

PERMIT OR EVEN ENCOURAGE THE

CONTINUED PERSECUTION AND

MURDER OF CHRISTIANS AND

JEWS.

THE CHRISTIANS IN THE

MIDDLE EAST AND THE JEWS IN

THE MIDDLE EAST ARE STANDING

BECAUSE THEY HAVE A POWER

UNLIKE ANY OTHER POWER ON

THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

THEY HAVE THE POWER OF THE

GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND

JACOB.

Reporter: PASTOR JOHN

HAGGI FOUNDED CHRISTIANS

UNITED FOR ISRAEL, WHICH

INCLUDES MORE THAN ONE

MILLION MEMBERS.

HE IS CALLING ON THEIR

CONTINUED SUPPORT OF THE

JEWISH PEOPLE.

WE MUST STAND WITH ISRAEL

AS THEY STAND AGAINST THE

TYRANNY OF HEZBOLLAH, HAMAS,

IRAN, THE MAKING OF THE

BOMB.

THERE MUST NEVER BE A

NUCLEAR BOMB IN IRAN THAT IS

THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT

GEOPOLITICAL ISSUE FACING

AMERICA AND THE FREE WORLD.

Reporter: DURING THEIR

TIME IN WASHINGTON, THE

MEMBERS ALSO TOOK TO CAPITOL

HILL TO LOBBY LAWMAKERS ON

BEHALF OF ISRAEL.

George: AND ERICK

STAKELBECK JOINS US FROM OUR

WASHINGTON, D.C. BUREAU.

ERICK, ISRAEL HAS BEEN

WARNING ABOUT IRAN FOR

YEARS.

HOW LONG DO WE HAVE BEFORE

SOMEONE HAS TO TAKE ACTION?

Reporter: GEORGE, I

THINK WE'RE REACHING ZERO

HOUR RIGHT NOW WITH THIS

IRANIAN NUCLEAR WEAPONS

PROGRAM.

THE VERY INTERESTING THING

IS THIS NEW IRANIAN

PRESIDENT, GEORGE.

HIS NAME IS ROUHANI.

HIS ELEVATION TO THE

PRESIDENCY IN IRAN HAS KIND

OF GIVEN THIS WHOLE IDEA OF

NEGOTIATIONS AND DIPLOMACY

WITH IRAN NEW LIFE HERE IN

THE WEST.

IN AMERICA, IN EUROPE,

LEADERS HERE ARE SAYING HEY,

NOW THAT ROUHANI HAS

REPLACED AHMADINEJAD, WE CAN

TALK THEM DOWN FROM THE

NUCLEAR HEAD.

GEORGE, IT IS NOT

HAPPENING.

ROUHANI IS A WOLF IN SHEEP'S

CLOTHING.

HE IS FULLY ON BOARD WITH

IRAN'S NUCLEAR WEAPONS

PROGRAM.

RECENTLY HE CALLED

ISRAEL, QUOTE,"A WOUND IN

THE MIDDLE EAST THAT NEEDS

TO BE REMOVED."

WE ARE ABSOLUTELY NEARING

ZERO HOUR.

GEORGE, FROM SPEAKING WITH

ISRAEL OFFICIALS ON AND OFF

THE RECORD FOR THE PAST

EIGHT YEARS, THERE IS NO

WAY, I BELIEVE, THAT ISRAEL

WILL ALLOW IRAN TO ACQUIRE A

NUCLEAR BOMB.

I THINK ULTIMATELY THE

DECISION TO ACT WILL BE UP

TO ISRAEL.

George: ERICK, THE WEST

IS LABELLING ROUHANI AS A

MODERATE, WHAT IS YOUR

TAKE?

WELL, LOOK, THIS IS A GUY

WHO, FROM THE BEGINNING,

GEORGE, WAS CLOSE TO THE

FOUNDER OF THIS WICKED

IRANIAN REGIME, AYATOLLAH

KHAMENEI.

AND HE IS CLOSE TO KHAMMENI,

WHO WANTS TO SEE ISRAEL

WIPED OFF THE MAP.

ROUHANI IS THE SMILING FACE

OF THE IRANIAN REGIME.

IT WAS QUITE INGENIUS ON THE

PART OF THE IRANIANS, THEY

ARE JUST ABOUT NEARING THE

FINISH LINE FOR THE NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

WHY HAVE AHMADINEJAD OUT

THERE, WHO IS RADICAL, WHY

HAVE HIM OUT THERE WHEN YOU

CAN HAVE THE SMILING FACE OF

PRED ROUHANI, WHO WILL TALK

TO THE WEST UNTIL THEY'RE

BLUE IN THE FACE, UNTIL ONE

MORNING WE WAKE UP AND TURN

ON CBN NEWS AND DISCOVER

THAT IRAN JUST TESTED A

NUCLEAR BOMB.

I DON'T BELIEVE THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION HAS THE WILL

TO ACT AGAINST THIS IRANIAN

NUCLEAR WEAPONS PROGRAM.

George: HOW IMPORTANT

IS THE CHRISTIAN SUPPORT FOR

THE JEWISH STATE AT THIS

TIME?

IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT

SUPPORT RIGHT NOW.

AND ISRAELIS ARE STARTING TO

KNOW IT.

I WAS AT THE SUMMIT

RECENTLY, AND THE LOVE FROM

THE JEWISH PEOPLE AT THE

SUMMIT, AND THE REALIZATION

THAT, HEY, THESE CHRISTIANS

LOVE US UNCONDITIONALLY, IT

IS HUGE.
