TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION IN SYRIA.

A LOOK AT WHAT THE CHURCH IS

FACING IN THE WAR-TORN REGION.

PLUS REMEMBERING THE LIVES

TAKEN BY ABORTION HOW ONE GROUP

IS PUSHING TO MAKE THE NATION

MORE AWARE.

AND PSYCHOLOGIST OF UNCLE SI,

ONE OF "DUCK DYNASTY" BIGGEST

STARS, ALL OF THIS AND MORE

TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH."

GOOD EVENING I AM MARK

MARTIN.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY IS

MEETING WITH RUSSIAN LEADERS IN

SWITZERLAND TO TALK ABOUT SYRIA.

HUGE STOCK PILES OF CHEMICAL

WEAPONS, KERRY IS REJECTING

BASHAR ASSAD'S -- ONE MONTH

AFTER SIGNING CHEMICAL WEAPONS

BAN.

KERRY SAYS U.S. MILITARY STRIKE

COULD STILL HAPPEN IF ASSAD

DOESN'T AGREE TO DISMANTLE THE

ARSENAL PROPERLY.

WHILE THE WORLD FOCUSES ON

BATTLE OVER CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN

SYRIA, CHRISTIANS ARE FACING

INTENSE PERSECUTION FROM

MUSLIMS.

IT IS HAPPENING THROUGHOUT THE

MIDDLE EAST, EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS

THE STORY.

REPORTER: SYRIAN CHRISTIANS

HAVE SUPPORTED ASSAD REGIME

BECAUSE IT PROTECTED RELIGIOUS

MINORITIES OVER THE YEARS.

THOSE DAYS ARE COMING TO AN END.

MANY ANALYST BELIEVE AS YOU

WEAKEN THE REGIME -- THEY WILL

HAVE THEIR SAY IN THE SO-CALLED

LIBERATED AREAS OF SYRIA.

IN THE NORTH AND ELSEWHERE WHERE

THEY ARE IMPOSING ISLAMIC RULE.

THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED IN

EGYPT WHEN THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD TOOK OVER.

EVEN THOUGH THE BROTHERHOOD HAS

BEEN WEAKENED, SUPPORTERS OF

OUSTED PRESIDENT MORSI HAVE

WREAKED HAVOC.

THEY COULDN'T BE LESS THAN A

THOUSAND CARRYING WEAPONS.

IN THE CHRISTIAN DOWN OF

ALDOGA, ANCIENT DOOR VANDALIZED

AND NEARBY CHURCHES BURNED.

WE HAVE FOUR CHURCHES IN THE

AREA AND CAN'T PRAY IN ANY OF

THEM.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IN

DALGA IS IMPOSING ATTACKS ON

CHRISTIANS.

ACCORDING TO THIS AUTHOR, JINJA

WILLING SUBMISSION AND WHILE

FEELING THEMSELVES SUBDUED TO

SAFEGUARD THEIR EXISTENCE.

PAY AN ATTACK, CONVERT OR DIE.

MANY FEAR IT IS WHAT WILL

HAPPEN IN THE CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITY IN IRAQ.

IT PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN

THE HERITAGE AND CULTURE AND

PERCEPTIONS OF TOLERANCE IN

THOSE COUNTRIES HAD TO FLEE

BECAUSE THEY WERE TARGETED BY

RADICAL ISLAMISTS.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

FOR MORE WE TURN TO SENIOR

INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENT GARY

LANE.

WHAT IS THE LATEST FROM THE

CHRISTIAN VILLAGE?

THERE WAS WORD REBELS LEFT

THE AREA.

NOW REPORTS ON THE SCENE, ONE

BBC REPORTER SAID THEY ARE STILL

FIGHTING BETWEEN GOVERNMENT

TROOPS.

STILL INTENSE FIGHTING

PARTICULARLY OVER A HOTEL THAT

THE REBELS HAVE BEEN OCCUPYING.

THERE IS A MOTHER SUPERIOR OF

ONE OF THE CONVENTS THAT SAID

LOOK NONE OF THE CHRISTIAN

SIGHTS HAVE BEEN TOUCHED, STILL

IN TACT, HAVEN'T BEEN DAMAGED

EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE REPORTS

FROM ASSAD AND STATE TELEVISION

SAYING ALL THESE CHRISTIAN SITES

HAVE BEEN DESTROYED BY THE

ISLAMISTS.

TELL US MORE ABOUT THE JIZI

ATTACKS, IS A DEATH SENTENCE FOR

NON-MUSLIMS?

YES, IT IS.

I HAVE MET MANY OF THE

CHRISTIANS IN UPPER EGYPT.

MANY MAKE MILES AN HOUR THAN $5

A DAY.

MANY OF THE ATTACKS IS $29 A DAY

U.S. IF YOU ARE NOT MAKING $5 A

DAY, HOW DO YOU AFFORD THAT?

ESPECIALLY OVER A LONG PERIOD OF

TIME.

IT IS FINANCIAL DEATH.

AS YOU KNOW UNDER ISLAMIC LAW

YOU HAVE THREE CHOICES, CONVERT

TO ISLAM.

IF YOU REFUSE, YOU PAY THE JIZIA

YOU DIE.

WITH THE ATTACKS, ARE THERE

CONCERNS THIS IS GOING TO SPREAD

TO OTHER AREAS?

I DON'T KNOW HOW EXTENSIVE IT

IS IN MALULA.

THEY DON'T HAVE FULL CONTROL.

IN DALGA, THERE ARE 140 FAMILIES

THAT HAVE BEEN FORCED TO PAY

THIS.

THIS IS NOTHING MORE THAN

EXTORTION.

IT REMINDS ME OF MAFIA.

IF YOU DON'T PAY IT, WE'LL BURN

YOUR BUSINESS.

THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE

DOING.

PEOPLE IN EGYPT KICKED THEM OUT.

THEY ARE STILL CONTROLLING THE

CITIES AND VILLAGES IN UPPER

EGYPT.

MANY FEAR IF THE SECULAR

GOVERNMENT IS OVERTHROWN, THEY

WILL BE TARGETED AND CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITIES WILL BE DESTROYED,

SHOULD PEOPLE BE DESTROYED?

LOOK WHAT HAPPENED IN IRAQ

AND WHAT HAPPENED THERE, WE HAD

1.2 MILLION CHRISTIANS THERE

BEFORE THE START OF THE IRAQ

WAR.

NOW TODAY WE ARE LUCKY IF THERE

ARE MORE THAN 500,000.

CLOSER TO 300-400,000

CHRISTIANS.

HERE IS SOMETHING NEW IN EGYPT.

CHRISTIANS ARE BEING KIDNAPPED.

DEMANDS FOR MONEY AND PAYMENT.

IT IS NOT A GOOD SITUATION WHEN

ISLAMIST GET CONTROL OF THE

VILLAGES, THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS.

WE HAVE TO BE PRAYING AND AWARE

AND KEEP THE PRESSURE ON.

ALL RIGHT.

GARY, THANKS FOR STAYING ON TOP

OF IT.

NORTH KOREA IS RESTARTING ITS

NUCLEAR ACTIVITY.

MANY OF U.S. RESEARCH INSTITUTE

SAYS COUNTRY IS BACK AT WORK ON

PLUTONIUM REACTOR.

NEW REVELATION IS NOT A

SURPRISE.

A FEDERAL JUDGE DISMISSED A

LAWSUIT TO REMOVE NATIONAL MOTTO

IN GOD WE TRUST FROM U.S.

CURRENCY.

VIOLATES SEPARATION OF CHURCH

AND STATE.

SUPREME COURT HAS REPEATEDLY

ASSUMED MOTTO'S SECULAR PURPOSE.

JUSTICE FILED A SUIT

REPRESENTING 41 MEMBERS OF

CONGRESS.

JAY SEKULOW SAYS IT IS

REPEATEDLY BROUGHT.

A JUDGE HAS BEEN ORDERED TO

STOP ISSUING MARRIAGE LICENSES

TO GAY COUPLES.

HE BELIEVES STATE'S SAME-SEX

COMING UP, HOW THE JEWISH

HOLIDAY OF YOM KIPPUR RESONATES

AMONG CHRISTIANS.

JEWS AND CHRISTIANS.

IT IS THE CENTRAL PRAYER OF

CONFESSION AND FOR FORGIVENESS

OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE ON YOM

KIPPUR.

IT IS A PRAYER THEY PRAY ON

BEHALF OF ALL THE JEWISH PEOPLE

AROUND THE WORLD.

THE REVEREND SERVES IN THE

OLD CITY AND STUDIED

CHRISTIANITY FOR NEARLY 30

YEARS.

HE SAYS IT RECOGNIZES JEREMIAH

THE PROPHET WROTE, THE HEART IS

DECEITFUL ABOVE ALL THINGS.

ONE THING WE LEARN FROM THE

JEWISH PEOPLE.

IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO SAY YOU ARE

SORRY.

YOU HAVE TO CONFESS, SAY YOU ARE

SORRY, AND AT THE SAME TIME,

TAKE PRACTICAL STEPS TO CHANGE

YOUR BEHAVIOR.

THE BAGROUP SAYS WE SINNED

BEFORE YOU, BETRAYED YOU, WE

SPOKE FALSE LIP -- FALSELY.

I ACKNOWLEDGE MY SINS, DESIRING

TO LEARN WHAT IS YOUR WILL

CONCERNING ME AND RESOLVING TO

DEVOTE MYSELF MORE FAITHLY TO

YOUR HOLY SERVICE.

CHRISTIANS CAN FIND A PARALLEL

BETWEEN YOM KIPPUR AND TEACHINGS

OF JESUS.

WE HAVE A SAYING OF JESUS, IF

YOU BRING YOUR GIFT TO THE ALTAR

AND YOUR BROTHER HAS SOMETHING

AGAINST YOU, LEAVE YOUR GIFT AT

THE ALTAR AND GO AND BE

RECONCILED WITH YOUR BROTHER.

GET YOUR RELATIONSHIP RIGHT WITH

YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD, BROTHER,

FAMILY MEMBER, FORGIVE AND BE

RECONCILED.

ON THE DAY OF ATONEMENT, WHEN

YOU BEGIN TO FAST AND PRAY AND

CONFESS, UM, GOD WILL HEAR YOUR

PRAYER AND FORGIVE YOU AS YOU

HAVE FORGIVEN OTHERS.
