TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH"

OPTIMISM OVER IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM AS NEW TALKS KICK OFF.

WHAT WORLD POWERS ARE EXPECTING.

PLUS SEXUAL ASSAULT IN THE

MILITARY.

PUSH FOR GREATER PROTECTION FOR

THOSE WHO FIGHT FOR OUR COUNTRY.

AND A LITTLE GIRL WAS THE VICTIM

OF THE WORST VIOLENCE AGAINST

CHRISTIANS IN 700 YEARS.

THE REMARKABLE WAY HER PARENTS

RESPONDED TO HER DEATH.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

GOOD EVENING I AM MARK MARTIN.

IRAN AND SIX WORLD POWERS

INCLUDING UNITED STATES APPEAR

TO BE MAKING PROGRESS IN EASING

A STANDOFF OVER IRAN'S NUCLEAR

AMBITIONS.

AS LORIE JOHNSON TELLS US IN OUR

TOP STORY TONIGHT, A DEAL IS A

LONG WAY OFF.

REPORTER: IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM IS THE SUBJECT OF A

TWO-DAY MEETING IN SWITZERLAND.

SANCTIONS ARE WORKING.

IRAN OFFERED TO CAP SOME OF ITS

ATOMIC ACTIVITIES IN EXCHANGE

FOR RELIEF FROM SANCTIONS.

IRAN'S PRIME MINISTER SAYS HIS

COUNTRY IS COMMITTED TO A NEW

APPROACH ON ISSUES.

WE NEED A DIFFERENT APPROACH,

ALL OF US TO GLOBAL AFFAIRS.

IRAN IS CERTAINLY READY TO PLAY

THAT NEW ROLE.

REPORTER: TALKS BETWEEN IRAN,

UNITED STATES, BRITAIN, FRANCE,

GERMANY, RUSSIA, AND CHINA ARE

FAR FROM CONCLUSIVE.

ALTHOUGH, IRAN CONCEDED TO

LIMITING ITS NUCLEAR CAPABILITY,

THEY HAVE YET TO DISCUSS

SPECIFIC STEPS THEY ARE WILLING

TO TAKE.

MICHAEL MAN SAYS THE BALL IS

DEFINITELY IN IRAN'S COURT.

WE HAVE TO GET DOWN TO THE

NITTY-GRITTY AND TALK ABOUT THE

SUBSTANCE OF THE ISSUES AND

HOPEFUL THEY WILL BE PREPARED TO

ENGAGE.

I DON'T THINK ANYONE IS

EXPECTING IMMEDIATE RESULTS.

REPORTER: IRANIAN HARD LINERS

WANT MAJOR SANCTIONS REDUCTIONS

IN EXCHANGE FOR SCALING BACK

THEIR PROGRAM.

WHILE SOME U.S. LEADERS SAY THEY

SHOULD STOP ENRICHMENT

ALTOGETHER.

NEITHER SIDE IS WILLING TO

COMPROMISE.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

ISRAELI LEADERS STRONGLY

OPPOSE A PLAN FOR IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

CALLING FOR TEHRAN TO STOP

URANIUM AT 20% IN EXCHANGE FOR

SANCTIONS RELIEF.

ISRAEL SAYS CURRENT SANCTIONS

ARE HURTING IRAN.

FOR MORE WE ARE JOINED BY SENIOR

INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENT

GEORGE THOMAS.

GEORGE, ISRAEL KEEPS WARNING ON

CUTTING BACK ON SANCTIONS.

REPORTER: BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

SAID IT WOULD BE A HISTORIC --

THEY ARE CALLING FOR A NUCLEAR

TIMEOUT.

ISRAELIS ARE CONCERNED THIS

FREEZES ONLY PORTIONS OF IRAN'S

PROGRAM.

IT DOES NOTHING TO DISMANTLE OR

ROLL BACK THE IRANIAN PROGRAM.

MOST EXPERTS ARE SAYING THEY ARE

WEEKS AWAY AND IRAN HAS CROSSED

THE POINT OF NO RETURN AND NEEDS

A FEW WEEKS TO GO NUCLEAR IF

THEY CHOOSE TO DO SO.

CLEARLY THIS IS WHY ISRAEL IS

VERY CONCERNED.

HOW EFFECTIVE ARE SANCTIONS?

REPORTER: WHEN I WAS IN IRAN,

THE SANCTIONS WERE TOUGH.

NOTHING LIKE THEY ARE TODAY.

THEY ARE TOTALLY CRIPPLING THE

NATION FROM THE OIL INDUSTRY,

IMPORT/EXPORT BUSINESS, BANKING

BUSINESS, IRANIANS ARE FEELING

THE SQUEEZE.

THEY HAVE COME TO THE TABLE.

ALL OF THIS IS ABOUT BUYING

TIME.

WE ARE TALKING ABOUT WEEKS HERE,

POTENT SHLLY MONTHS.

TALK ABOUT HASSAN ROUHANI?

REPORTER: SINCE HASSAN

ROUHANI CAME TO POWER, HE IS CUT

OF THE SAME CLOTH.

HE MAY NOT LOOK, AND SOUND LIKE

MAHMOUD AHMADENIJAD, THE MAN

THAT RAN IRAN FOR EIGHT YEARS

WHO WAS BELLIGERENT SAYING THE

HOLOCAUST WAS A MYTH.

HASSAN ROUHANI DRESSED

DIFFERENT, SPEAKS GOOD ENGLISH

AND KNOWS HOW TO PLAY THE MAIN

STREAM MEDIA AND DID WHEN HE

CAME TO THE UNITED STATES A FEW

MONTHS AGO.

LET'S BE CLEAR, THIS MAN WAS

HAND PICKED BY THE TOP RELIGIOUS

CLERIC IN IRAN.

IMAGINE BEING IN THE UNITED

STATES AND SOMEBODY SAYING A

CANDIDATE A, B, C, AND D ARE THE

ONLY FOLKS YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM.

HASSAN ROUHANI WAS SELECTED BY

THE HIGHEST LEADER ISLAMIC

CLERIC IN THE COUNTRY.

TO THINK THIS MAN IS NOT CUT OF

THE SAME CLOTH, YOU ARE CRAZY.

DO YOU THINK IRAN AND OTHER

WORLD POWERS ARE GOING TO REACH

A PLAN?

REPORTER: THERE IS A SENATOR

FROM TENNESSEE BOB CULLKER SAYS

THEY WILL CURTAIL ANY DEALS.

ATMOSPHERE IS SHOWING THAT,

IRANIANS WILL GET SOME REPRIEVE

FROM THE SANCTIONS.

GEORGE THOMAS THANK YOU FOR

YOUR INSIGHTS.

REPORTER: YOU ARE WELCOME,

SIR.

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY

WILL BE BACK IN ISRAEL TOMORROW

FOR AN ADDITIONAL MEETING WITH

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU.

KERRY PLEDGED AMERICA WILL SENT

75 MILLION DOLLARS TO AID TO

PALASTINIAN HOPING TO BRING

MIDDLE EAST PEACE TALKS.

HE WARNED MORE VIOLENCE WILL BE

THE RESULT OF BEING UNWILLING TO

MEET.

THE UNREST ISN'T COMING FROM HIS

COUNTRY.

I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR

PROGRESS.

I SEE THE PALASTINIAN CONTINUING

TO CREATE ARTIFICIAL CRISES AND

AVOID AND RUN AWAY FROM THE

STARK DECISIONS NEEDED TO MAKE A

GENUINE PEACE.

KERRY MET WITH JORDAN'S KING

ABDULLAH THE 2ND.

LEAVES ONE MORE FOR THE EXPERTS

TO CONFIRM DESTROYED.

UNITED NATIONS ARE WORKING ON

ABINSTRUCTION OF SYRIA'S

ARSENAL.

THEY USED PHOTOS TO VERIFY THE

DISMANTLING AND A BIG STEP TO

ELIMINATE THE WEAPONS BY 2014.

PAKISTAN TALIBAN HAS CHOSEN ITS

NEXT LEADER, THE MAN WHO PLOTTED

THE SHOOTING MALALA HAS BEEN

PICKED TO HEAD THE GROUP AND

QUICKLY RULED OUT ANY PEACE

TALKS WITH THE PAKISTANI

GOVERNMENT.

THIS IS LESS THAN A WEEK AFTER

THE U.S. DRONE STROKE KILLED THE

COMMANDER OF THE PAKISTANI

TALIBAN.

A NEW GAY RIGHTS PASSED WITH

BIPARTISAN SUPPORT.

PREVENTS EMPLOYERS FROM USING

SEXUAL ORIENTATION AS THE BASIS

FOR HIRING, FIRING, COMPENSATION

OR PROMOTION.

EXEMPTS RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS

AND MILITARY.

BILLS CHANCES IN HOUSE ARE SLIM.

SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER SAYS IT

WILL CREATE COSTLY FRIVOLOUS

LAWSUITS.

LAWMAKERS ARE DEMANDING CHANGE

ON HOW THE MILITARY DEALS WITH

CASES OF SEXUAL ASSAULT.

AS KATELYN BURKE REPORTS, THE

CHANGES ARE BEING CALLED FOR

AFTER THE DISCOVERY OF TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF VICTIMS WHO NEVER

CAME FORWARD.

REPORTER: LAST YEAR ALONE,

ESTIMATED 26,000 CASES OF SEXUAL

ASSAULT IN THE MILITARY.

OF THOSE, ONLY ABOUT 3500 WERE

REPORTED.

SENATOR KIERSTON IS TRYING TO

PASS LEGISLATION.

TOO OFTEN THESE BRAVE MEN AND

WOMEN ARE IN THE FIGHT OF THEIR

LIFE.

IT IS NOT ON SOME FAR OFF

FOREIGN SOIL.

IT IS IN THEIR OWN RANKS AS

VICTIMS OF HORRIFIC ACTS OF

VIOLENCE.

REPORTER: IT WILL TAKE THEM

OUTSIDE THE CHAIN OF COMMAND

GIVING MILITARY PROSECUTORS

RATHER THAN THE VICTIMS THE

POWER TO DECIDE WHICH CASES TO

MOVE FORWARD.

THERE IS NO ACCOUNTABILITY

BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN BROKEN UNDER

THE CURRENT SYSTEM WHERE

COMMANDERS HOLD ALL THE CARDS AS

TO WHETHER A CASE WILL MOVE

FORWARD OR NOT.

REPORTER: MILITARY LEADERS

SAY THEY MUST BE IN CHARGE OF

POLICING THEIR RANKS.

STILL LAWMAKERS SAY THAT HASN'T

BEEN EFFECTIVE.

TEA PARTY FAVORITES RAND PAUL

AND TED CRUZ ARE BACKING IT.

FORTY-SIX SENATORS ARE ON BOARD.

COMING UP, THE POWERFUL

WAYBILLY GRAHAM WILL CELEBRATE

HIS BIRTHDAY.

BILLY GRAHAM WILL CELEBRATE HIS

BIRTHDAY.

WELCOME BACK, EVANGELIST

BILLY GRAHAM TURNS 95.

SOME PREDICT COULD BE HIS

LARGEST EVER, CRUSADE.

JOHN JESSUP SAT DOWN WITH

GRAHAM'S SON, FRANKLIN TO EXPECT

THE MOST POWERFUL MESSAGE GRAHAM

HAS EVER DELIVERED.

REPORTER: HE CALLS THE

TELEVISED SERMON TRULY ANOITED.

IT BURDENS MY HEART TO SHARE

THIS MESSAGE.

IT IS LIKE YOUR GRANDFATHER

TALKING TO YOU AND HIS EYES

PIERCE THROUGH THE TV SET TO THE

HEARTS OF THE PEOPLE.

IT IS THE MOST POWERFUL MESSAGE

I HAVE HEARD MY FATHER GIVE.

REPORTER: THE CRUSADE IS

CALLED MY HOPE, AMERICA.

THIS IS THE FIRST BROADCAST TO

HIT THE STATES.

A NIGHT WHEN 200,000 VOLUNTEERS

OPEN UP THEIR HOMES TO FRIENDS,

AND NEIGHBORS TO WATCH HIS

TESTIMONIES.

AFTER THE TELECAST, HOME HOSTS

WILL SHARE HOW JESUS GAVE THEM

HOPE AND INVITE OTHERS TO MAKE A

LIFE CHANGING DECISION.

IT IS MY HOPE AND MY PRAYER

AND FATHER'S PRAYER, MANY TENS

OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ON

NOVEMBER 7TH WILL CONFESS THEIR

SINS TO GOD, ASK FOR HIS

FORGIVENESS AND BY FAITH BELIEVE

IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.

REPORTER: GRAHAM WILL TAKE

PART IN A BIRTHDAY PARTY IN

ASHFORD, NORTH CAROLINA.

CONSIDERED ONE OF THE WORLD'S

MOST ADMIRED MEN, PREACHER, IN

SEPTEMBER HE WROTE TO IRAN'S NEW

PRESIDENT ASKING FOR THE RELEASE

OF AMERICAN PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI.

I SAID DADDY, THERE IS A PASTOR

IN IRAN AND IN PRISON BECAUSE OF

HIS FAITH.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF YOU

WOULD BE WILLING TO WRITE A

LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT OF IRAN

TO ASK FOR HIS RELEASE HE IS

GOING TO BE IN NEW YORK.

DADDY SAID ABSOLUTELY.

LET'S DO IT.

REPORTER: HE COMPLETED LATEST

BOOK "THE REASON FOR MY HOPE."

REPORTER: YOUR FATHER WRITES

THE BOOK AND THE PURPOSE IS

ABOUT A HOPE AND SALVATION

THROUGH CHRIST.

HASN'T THAT BEEN HIS MESSAGE

THROUGHOUT HISTORY?

IT IS.

WE ARE IN DANGER OF HELL.

PEOPLE ARE NOT CALLING ON THE

NAME OF AL MIGHTY GOD.

GOD IS A GOD OF JUDGMENT.

HE IS GOING TO JUDGE SIN.

TODAY HE WANTS TO FORGIVE SIN.

REPORTER: GRAHAM SAYS

CONSIDERING HIS FATHER'S AGE AND

HEALTH, THIS WEEK'S CRUSADE WILL

LIKELY BE HIS LAST.

REPORTER: HOW IS HE DOING?

THANK YOU NEW HE IS DOING PRETTY

GOOD?

IT IS REMARKABLE HE IS NOT

ONLY TO WRITE THIS BOOK BUT DO

THIS FILM, THE CROSS.

HE HAS BEEN HARD AT WORK THIS

YEAR DOING TWO MAJOR PROJECTS.

I AM PROUD OF HIM.

I WANT TO LEAVE YOU WITH THE

TRUTH.

HE LOVES YOU, WILLING TO FORGIVE

YOU OF ALL YOUR SINS.

REPORTER: JOHNS JO JESSUP, CBN

NEWS.

OUT WHEN "MY HOPE AMERICA"

AIRS IN YOUR AREA.

UP NEXT, THE PERSECUTED CHURCH

IN EGYPT AND WHY MANY FUTURE

LEADERS ARE WORRIED ABOUT THEIR

HOMELAND.

EGYPT'S OUSTED PRESIDENT

HOSNI MUBARAK WILL RETURN TO

PRISON.

MUBARAK IS CHARGED WITH KILLING

ALMOST 900 PROTESTERS DURING

2011 UPRISING.

THE EVENT LED TO HIS OUSTER.

HIS RETURN TO PRISON IS MANDATED

BY A LEGISLATIVE AMENDMENT.

IT HAS BEEN FOUR MONTHS SINCE

MANY MUSLIMS BLAME CHRISTIANS

FOR THE UPRISING.

EGYPT'S CHRISTIANS FACE ATTACKS

EVERYDAY.

GEORGE THOMAS EXPLAINS THEY ARE

DEEPLY TROUBLED ABOUT THEIR

FUTURE.

JULY 3RD, 2013, AS THE SUN

SETS OVER CAIRO, HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF EGYPTIANS CELEBRATE

IN TAHRIR OR LIBERATION SQUARE.

IT WAS GAME OVER FOR MOHAMMED

MORSI.

THE CHIEF JUSTICE WILL RULE

THE COUNTRY DURING THAT

TRANSITIONAL PERIOD.

MOHAMMED MORSI WAS AN

ISLAMIST LEADER WHO HAD BIG

DREAMS FOR EGYPT.

AS EGYPT'S FIRST

DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED

PRESIDENT, MORSI ALSO LED THE

BROTHERHOOD.

EGYPTIANS HAD ENOUGH.

THEY DEMANDED HE STEP DOWN.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

BELIEVED HE WOULD TURN IT INTO

AN ISLAMIC COUNCIL.

HE IS PARTY OF THE 10% OF

EGYPT'S POPULATION THAT IS

CHRISTIAN.

EVERYONE KNEW WE WERE

PROTESTING AGAINST THE MORSI

GOVERNMENT.

A PROMINENT EGYPTIAN CHRISTIAN

BELIEVES MORSI'S REMOVAL WAS

NOTHING SHORT OF A MIRACLE.

CHRISTIANS FELT LIKE A HEAVY

BURDEN HAD BEEN REMOVED FROM OUR

NATION.

WE COULD NEVER IMAGINE SUCH AN

OUTCOME WAS POSSIBLE.

THEN CAME THE ISLAMIC

THREATS.

STARTED SEEING MESSAGES PEOPLE

SAYING WE ARE GOING TO KILL

CHRISTIANS FOR DEMONSTRATING.

THEY SAID OUR FAMILY, CHILDREN,

HOMES AND BUSINESSES WOULD BE

TARGETED.

EGYPTIAN CHRISTIANS HAD EVERY

REASON TO BE CONCERNED.

THE STREETS WERE QUIET.

I REMEMBER THERE AREN'T TOO MANY

CARS ON THE ROAD.

NOT TOO MANY PEOPLE WALKING

AROUND.

THEY WERE AT HOME THE EVENING

THAT CHANGED THEIR LIVES

FOREVER.

MY FRIEND WAS SCREAMING

"JESSIE WAS SHOT!"

IT WAS AUGUST 1ST, JESSIE

JUST WALKED OUT OF CHURCH, SHE

WALKED DOWN THIS VERY STREET AND

CAME TO THIS SPOT AND ONE SINGLE

SHOT TO THE HEART ENDED HER

LIFE.

[SHOTS FIRED]

[ FOREIGN SPEAKING ]

JESSIE WAS OUR ONLY LITTLE

CHILD.

SHE WAS A WONDERFUL PERSON.

SHE WAS ONLY 10 YEARS OLD.

WHEN SHE TURNED 10, I COULD

SEE OUR LITTLE GIRL SLOWLY

TURNING INTO A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG

LADY.

SHE WAS MY DAUGHTER, SHE WAS MY

FRIEND.

NO ONE HAS CLAIMED

RESPONSIBILITY.

THEY BELIEVE SHE WAS KILLED

BECAUSE OF HER FAITH.

BECAUSE WE SUPPORTED MORSI'S

REMOVAL, RADICAL MUSLIMS ARE

LIKE BOMBS READY TO EXPLODE

AGAINST CHRISTIANS.

THAT FURY EXPLODED DAYS AFTER

JESSIE'S MURDER.

ON AUGUST 14TH, HOURS AFTER THE

ARMY VIOLENTLY BROKE UP TWO

BROTHERHOOD PROTEST CAMPS IN

CAIRO, MORSI'S SYMPATHIZERS

LAUNCHED ATTACKS AGAINST

CHRISTIANS AND DESTROYED MORE

THAN 200 CHRISTIAN-OWNED

PROPERTIES.

SOME 43 CHURCHES SERIOUSLY

DAMAGED, SHOPS, BUSINESSES, CARS

WERE ALSO TARGETED.

IT WAS THE WORST ORGANIZED

VIOLENCE AGAINST CHRISTIANS IN

700 YEARS.

THIS DOCTOR, RECENT GRAD AND

NATIVE SAID THE GOVERNMENT DID

LITTLE TO STOP THE ATTACKS.

CBN NEWS MET HIM IN CAIRO WHILE

HE MINISTERED TO PASTORS DURING

THE ASSAULT.

MOST OF THE PASTORS AFFECTED

WERE SO POOR.

THE LORD HELPED US TO MEET THEIR

FINANCIAL AND PHYSICAL NEEDS.

THE PASTORS ARE GRATEFUL THAT

PEOPLE IN THE U.S. STOOD BESIDE

THEM DURING THEIR TRIALS.

FOUR MONTHS AFTER MORSI'S

REMOVAL, PEOPLE ARE WORRIED

ABOUT AN ISLAMIC-LED INSURGENCY.

OCTOBER 21ST, MOTORCYCLE RIDERS

PULLED UP AND KILLED FOUR PEOPLE

AT A WEDDING INCLUDING AN

EIGHT-YEAR-OLD GIRL.

THIS IS ENOUGH.

PEOPLE ARE GETTING SICK AND

TIRED OF THIS.

BULLIS AND WIFE RESOLVED TO

-- AFTER JESSIE'S DEATH, GOD

GAVE US A BIGGER DESIRE TO PRAY

FOR CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS.

ONLY GOD CAN OPEN HEARTS AND

EYES TO EXPERIENCE HIS LOVE.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS,

CAIRO.

UP NEXT, SEE WHAT STOLE THE

SHOW AT LAST NIGHT'S "CMA

AWARDS."

THE 47TH COUNTRY AMERICA

AWARDS.

THE BIGGEST WINNER OF THE NIGHT

WAS HOSTS BRAD PAISLEY AND CARY

UNDERWOODS'S 'OBAMACARE' SPOOF.

I STARTED THURSDAY AND ALMOST

DONE.

WHY IS IT SPINNING?

IT DOES THAT.

WHY IS IT SMOKING?

[SINGING] 'OBAMACARE' BY

MORNING, OVER SIX PEOPLE SERVED.

[APPLAUSE].

[LAUGHTER].

THAT IS A CREATIVE.

SHOW-STEALING SONG WAS A

SPIN-OFF BY GEORGE STRAIGHT'S

"AMARILLO BY MORNING QUOTES

SONG.
