THERE IS AN IMPORTANT DEBATE

IN WASHINGTON RIGHT NOW THAT

MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW

ANYTHING ABOUT.

AND IT COULD AFFECT HOW GOOD

YOUR INTERNET SERVICE IS AT

HOME AND AT WORK.

Wendy: THAT'S RIGHT.

THE QUESTION IS: WHAT'S THE

BEST WAY FOR THE WEB TO

OPERATE SO THAT EVERYONE HAS

THE BEST INTERNET POSSIBLE.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS THAT

STORY FROM WASHINGTON.

Reporter: EACH DAY THE

INTERNET BECOMES MORE

INTEGRAL TO THE WAY WE LIVE,

LEARN, AND DO BUSINESS, AND

THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS

COMMISSION HAS BEEN TRYING

TOTO FIGURE OUT HOW THE

INTERNET SERVES EVERYONE

EQUALLY, SO THAT NO BUSINESS

OR WEBSITE IS ABLE TO MOVE

FASTER OVER THE NET THAN ANY

OTHERS.

THE IDEA IS KNOWN AS NET

NEUTRALLITY.

WITHOUT NET NEUTRALITY,

PROVIDERS COULD GIVE CERTAIN

SERVICES TO CERTAIN

COMPANIES.

Reporter: BUT THE

F.C.C. THREW OUT THE NET

NEUTRALITY RULES.

BUT THE COURT GAVE THE

COMMISSION SOME GUIDANCE ON

HOW TO REWRITE THE RULES

WITHOUT LOSING IN COURT

AGAIN.

THE COMMISSION PLANS TO

RELEASE THOSE RULES NEXT

WEEK, AND THE CHAIRMAN SAYS

EVERYTHING IS ON THE TABLE.

IT IS REALLY INTEGRAL AS

THESE SERVICES OF INTERNET

BECOMES SO ESSENTIAL IN OUR

LIVES, AND NOW IS REALLY THE

TIME FOR THEM TO ACT.

Reporter: DERRICK AND

OTHER ADVOCATES FOR NET

NEUTRALITY WAS THE F.C.C. TO

RECLASSIFY THE INTERNET IN

FEDERAL LAW, SO THE INTERNET

WOULD BE CONSIDERED A

TELEPHONE, GIVING THE F.C.C.

FULL AUTHORITY TO REGULATE

IT.

CRITICS SAY IT DOESN'T

BELONG IN TODAY'S MODERN

TECHNOLOGY.

IT IS TECHNOLOGY THAT

WOULD HAVE BEEN FAMILIAR TO

GROVER CLEVELAND.

Reporter: INSTEAD OF

PUTTING THE INTERNET INTO

THE SAME CATEGORY OF PHONE

AND WATER SERVICE, HE ARGUES

THE AGENCY NEEDS TO STAY OUT

OF IT AND LET THE FREE

MARKET DETERMINE THE

FUTURE.

THE INTERNET IS DYNAMIC,

INNOVATIVE, CONSTANTLY

CHANGING AND COMING UP WITH

NEW IDEAS.

THE F.C.C. IS NONE OF THAT.

THE F.C.C. IS SLOW.

IT'S BUREAUCRATIC, AND IT

DOESN'T COME UP WITH NEW

IDEAS.

Reporter: HE COMPARES

IT TO THE HIGHWAY,

INCREASINGLY IN CONGESTED

AREAS, PEOPLE ARE GIVEN THE

OPTION TO PAY MORE TO GET

WHERE THEY'RE GOING MORE

QUICKLY IN SO-CALLED FAST

LANES.

HE SAYS IT MAKES SENSE FOR

FASTER INTERNET SERVICE

PROVIDERS TO BE ALLOWED TO

DO THE SAME THING.

CUT DEALS WITH COMPANIES

THAT WANT THEIR COMPANY

PRIORITIZED INTO A FAST LANE

INTO YOUR HOME.

UNLESS YOU BELIEVE THAT

MONEY IS AN ILLEGITIMATE WAY

TO ALLOCATE RESOURCES, THIS

IS TOTALLY UNOBJECTIONABLE.

IT SERVES COSTUMERS IN NEED,

AND THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO

OBTAIN IT IN THE

MARKETPLACE.

Reporter: BUT ADVOCATES

FOR NET NEUTRALITY ARGUE IF

COMPANIES CAN PURCHASE A

FASTER LANE INTO PEOPLE'S

HOMES, THE SMALLER, START-UP

COMPANIES WON'T BE ABLE TO

COMPETE.

GIVING THE F.C.C. ASPECTS TO

REGULATE THE INTERNET

GUARANTEES IT WILL REMAIN

OPEN.

BUT TUSSO SAYS IT WILL

ULTIMATELY LEAD TO WORSE

INTERNET SERVICE, NOT

BETTER.

F.C.C. VOTES ON THE NEWEST

PROPOSAL NEXT WEEK, AND THEN

THE PUBLIC WILL HAVE THE

CHANCE TO WEIGH IN.

IT WILL BE MONTHS, POSSIBLY

A YEAR, BEFORE ANY NEW RULES

ARE ADOPTED.

JENNIFER WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Gordon: THIS IS ONE

WHERE WE ALL NEED TO BE

INVOLVED IN THIS DEBATE

BECAUSE IT DOES IMPACT THE

FUTURE OF THE INTERNET.

AND IN PARTICULAR, THE

FUTURE OF START-UP COMPANIES

ON THE INTERNET.

IT HAS BEEN A GREAT LEVELLER

IN TERMS OF TECHNOLOGY,

WHERE YOU DON'T NEED A LOT

OF MONEY, YOU DON'T NEED

SIGNIFICANT CAPITAL IN ORDER

TO HAVE A MARKET INFLUENCE.

AND IF THESE RULES GET

PASSED, WHERE COMPANIES WITH

MONEY CAN BUY A PRIORITY

POSITION ON THE INTERNET,

THEN IT CHANGES EVERYTHING.

SO BE VOLVE.

LEARN HO -- SO BE

INVOLVED.

LEARN HOW YOU CAN LOBBY THE

F.C.C. AND LOBBY AGAINST

THESE RULES.

IN OTHER NEWS, THE VENON

BROTHERS ARE SPEAKING OUT

ABOUT WHY THEIR SHOW ON TV

GOT CANCELLED.

Reporter: DAVID VENOM

SAYS A SMEAR CAMPAIGN WAS

RUN AGAINST HIM AND HIS

BROTHER.

HE WAS TOLD BY SOMEONE CLOSE

THAT HE AND HIS BROTHER HAD

A PROBLEM.

THEY CANCELLED THE SHOW ON

WENDY AFTER A REPORT ABOUT

ONE OF THE BROTHER'S

ACTIVITIES AGAIN SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE AND ABORTION.

HE SAYS HGTV MADE A DECISION

ON ONE TINY SEGMENT OF THE

CULTURE.

AND HAD THEY HEARD FROM THE

REST OF THE CULTURE, I THINK

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN

DIFFERENT.

AT THIS TIME, IT IS OVER.

VENOM SAYS HE LOVES GAYS,

BUT HATES THE GAY AGENDA

THAT TRIES TO SILENCE PEOPLE

OF FAITH.

YOU CAN FIND THE STORY BY

GOING TO CBNNEWS.COM.

NIGERIA'S MILITARY SAYS ITS

ARMY IS COMMITTED TO RESCUE

THE 276 SCHOOL GIRLS THAT

WERE KIDNAPPED BY BOKO

HARAM.

BUT THE GROUP IS ON A BIGGER

MISSION, THEY WANT TO TURN

NIGERIA IS A SOVIET STATE.

Reporter: THEY DESCRIBE

BOKO HARAM AS A MONSTER THAT

NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH.

THE GROUP KIDNAPPED NEARLY

300 GIRLS IN NIGERIA, AND IN

A VIDEO RELEASED EARLIER

THIS WEEK, ANNOUNCED IT

WOULD CONVERT THE DAUGHTERS

OF CHRISTIANS AND SELL

THEM.

Translator: THERE IS A

MARKET FOR SELLING HUMANS.

Reporter: ALA SAYS, I

SHOULD SELL.

CBN NEWS TERRORISM ANALYST

ERICK STAKELBECK SAYS THAT

IS NO SURPRISE.

ACCORDING TO THEIR

LEADERSHIP, THIS IS MANDATED

IN ISLAM.

SLAVERY IS LEGAL IN ISLAM,

AND THE QURAN CALLS THIS

KIND OF THING THE SPOILS OF

WAR AND IT IS PERFECTLY

LEGAL.

NOW, DOES THE WORLD STEP IN

IN SOME WAY TO STOP THAT?

CAN IT BE STOPPED?

THAT REMAINS TO BE SEEN.

BUT RIGHT NOW NIGERIA

DOESN'T SEEM TO BE DOING

ENOUGH TO BATTLE AGAINST

THIS GROUP.

Reporter: NOW THE U.S.,

BRITAIN, AND CHINA ARE

INVOLVED IN SENDING TEAMS TO

NIGERIA TO HELP SEARCH FOR

THE GIRLS WHO WERE ABDUCTED

MORE THAN THREE WEEKS AGO.

OUR EMBASSY IN ABUJA IS

GOING TO SEND A CELL THAT

COULD PROVIDE INFORMATION ON

INTELLIGENCE, ON HOSTAGE

NEGOTIATIONS, AND TO HELP

WITH INFORMATION, SHARING

AND VICTIM ASSISTANCE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

LEADERS ACROSS THE U.S. ARE

PRAYING FOR THE GIRLS AND

URGING FELLOW CHRISTIANS TO

TAKE ACTION.

WE ARE HERE TO PRAY FOR

THESE YOUNG GIRLS, WHO ARE

STUDENTS, AND WHO'S ONLY

GUILT WAS TO SEEK

EDUCATION.

IT IS, IN FACT, A BLACK

EYE TO THE BODY OF CHRIST,

FOR CHRISTIANS TO BE

SILENT.

Reporter: A BIPARTISAN

GROUP OF CONGRESS ALSO

SHOWED THEIR SUPPORT THIS

WEEK, PAUSING FOR A MOMENT

OF SILENCE AND PRAYER FOR

THE SAFETY OF THE GIRLS,

AGES 15 TO 18.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: THE DECINDER

DISINTEGRATEING SITUATION IN

UKRAINE HAS INVOLVED IN AN

ANTI-SEMITIC ATTACK AGAINST

JEWS LIVING THERE.

MANY ARE REPORTING ABOUT

ESCAPING TO ISRAEL.

SOME HAVE ALL RIGHT LEFT.

Reporter: 19 UKRAINIAN

JEWS ARRIVED IN ISRAEL THIS

WEEK, AFTER ESCAPING THE

VIOLENCE ENGULFING THEIR

COUNTRY.

OTHERS STILL WAIT AND WORRY

ABOUT RELATIVES LEFT

BEHIND.

I'M FROM GUNAS.

I ARRIVED TO ISRAEL IN 1991

WITH MY FAMILY.

BUT, STILL NOW, I HAVEN'T

FOUND MY AUNT.

SHE IS AGE 86, AND I'M VERY

WORRIED.

Reporter: ALINA WORKS

FOR THE JEWISH AGENCY,

HELPING PEOPLE COME HOME TO

ISRAEL.

FOR THE JEWISH PEOPLE, IT

IS DIFFERENT.

IT IS DIFFERENT IN ALL

CITIES.

THE ONE THING THAT IS

COMMON, THAT WE FEEL THAT

THE JEWS WANT TO GO TO

ISRAEL.

Reporter: IN THE EARLY

1990s, MORE THAN IS

MILLION JEWS IMMIGRATED TO

ISRAEL FROM THE FORMER

SOVIET UNION.

MANY OF THEM FROM UKRAINE.

THAT TAPERED OFF, BUT NOW

IMMIGRATION FROM THE UKRAINE

HAS RISEN MORE THAN 100% IN

THE FIRST MONTHS OF THIS

YEAR.

FRIENDS, ALIN AR AND DARIA,

ARRIVED ON THIS WEEK'S

FLIGHT.

I'M FROM UKRAINE.

THERE IS A DIFFICULT

SITUATION IN OUR COUNTRY.

I LOVE ISRAEL.

I'VE BEEN HERE MANY TIMES.

I HAVE RELATIVES HERE.

THAT'S MY COUNTRY.

IT IS A HARD SITUATION.

EVERY DAY PEOPLE ARE DYING.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS

SAFER NOW TO BE THERE FOR

JEWS.

Reporter: THIS FLIGHT

WAS SPONSORED BY THE

INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN

EMBASSY JERUSALEM, WHICH

BEGAN HELPING JEWS IMMIGRATE

TO ISRAEL MORE THAN 25 YEARS

AGO.

THE EMBASSY HAS ALREADY

HELPED MORE THAN 40,000

UKRAINIAN JEWS COME HOME.

SOME TIMES IT WAS IN TIMES

OF CONFLICT.

THIS SEEMS TO BE ANOTHER

OCCASION WHERE JEWS ARE

ENDANGERED IN UKRAINE, AND

THERE HAS BEEN AN INCREASE

IN ANTI-SEMITIC ATTACKS, AND

THEY'RE WANTING TO COME

HOME.

Reporter: CARSON SEES

THIS RETURN AS PART OF

BIBLICAL PROPHECY.

WE DO BELIEVE THAT THE

RETURN OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE

IS FULFILLMENT OF GOD'S

PROMISES TO BRING THE JEWS

BACK, EVEN IN THE HEBREW

PROPHETS, IT SPEAKS OF

GENTILES ASSISTING WITH

THIS.

AND WE SEE OURSELVES IN

SCRIPTURE AS THOSE JEN

GENTILES THAT GOT HAS

BECKONED TO HELP RETURN THE

JEWS BACK TO THE LAND.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

ISRAEL HAS BEEN GETTING

PRAISE FROM AN UNEXPECTED

SOURCE: WRITERS IN THE ARAB

WORLD.

THAT'S THE FINDING FROM A

NEW STUDY BY THE MIDDLE EAST

MEDIA RESEARCH INSTITUTE.

THEY SAY MOST OF THE ARAB

STORIES MAINLY COMPLIMENT

ISRAEL FOR ITS HIGH

TECHNOLOGY, AND THEY SAY

ARAB COUNTRIES SHOULD LEARN

FROM IT.

BUT OTHER WRITERS ALSO

PRAISE ISRAEL FOR ITS

DEMOCRATIC SYSTEM,

EDUCATION, AND REALITY.

AND ISRAEL ALSO ATTRACTS

GREAT JEWISH MINDS FROM ALL

AROUND THE WORLD.

GORDON, THAT IS, INDEED,

UNEXPECTED, BUT FOR ISRAEL,

WELCOME PRAISE.

Gordon: IT IS A WHOLE

LOT BETTER THAN WHAT THEY'RE

USED TO, WHICH IS LET US

DESTROY THEM, DRIVE THEM

INTO THE SEA, WIPE THEM OFF

THE MAP.

THERE WAS A WHOLE LOT OF

PROMISE WITH THE ARAB

SPRING, AND WE'RE NOW

CALLING IT THE ARAB WINTER.

IS THE ARABIC WORLD GOING TO

GO DOWN INTO CHAOS, OR ARE

THEY GOING TO RISE UP INTO

DEMOCRACY.

THE FUNDAMENTAL POINT HERE

IS THAT CULTURE MATTERS.

AND SPECIFICALLY IN YOUR

CULTURE, WHAT ARE YOUR

THOUGHTS ABOUT GOD, AND WHAT

DOES GOD WANT TO DO FOR HIS

PEOPLE?

WHEN YOU GET THOSE THINGS

LINED UP, YOU GET A WHOLE

LOT OF INNOVATION.

A CULTURAL STUDIES CLUB AT

HARVARD UNIVERSITY PLANS TO

HOST A SATANIC BLACK MASK.

IT WILL STAGE THE SERVICE

NEXT MONDAY AT THE IVY

LEAGUE SCHOOL.

A SPOKESPERSON SAYS OF THE

EVENT "IT IS A DECLARATION

OF PERSONAL INDEPENDENCE AS

SOME SEE FROM

COUNTERCULTURAL EDUCATION."

THEY ARE HOSTING IT HAS AN

EXPLORATION INTO RELIGIOUS

CULTURES.

AND THEY RECENTLY TRIED TO

PLACE A MONUMENT NEXT TO THE

10 COMMANDMENTS AT ANDREW

ANDREAN OKLAHOMA

UNIVERSITY.

THERE WAS A VOLCANO THAT

ERUPTED THAT BURIED CROPS

AND IMPAIRING THEIR SOIL.

"OPERATION BLESSING" BROUGHT

IN PEOPLE TO TEACH THE

VILLAGERS HOW TO BUILD

RAISED BEDS.

FAMILIES PARTICIPATE IN

FAMILY WORKSHOPS ON FAMILY

FARMING.

AND THEY PROVIDED ORGANIC

FERTILIZER AND PLENTY OF

GOOD SEEDS TO GET STARTED.

YOU CAN ALWAYS GET MORE

ABOUT "OPERATION BLESSING"

BY GOING TO ITS WEBS,
