TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

POLITICS FIRST, WHY CRITICS

SAY THE PRESIDENT'S NATIONAL

SECURITY TEAM ISN'T UP TO

THE JOB.

Wendy: PLUS, A WIND IN

THE HOUSE OF ISLAM.

HOW GOD IS BRINGING MUSLIMS

TO FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST.

George: AND THE MIDDLE

EAST IS OIL-RICH, BUT

WATER-DRY.

HOW ISRAEL KEEPS THE TAP

FLOWING EVEN IN A DROUGHT.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT

ON "NEWSWATCH."

POLITICS PUTTING AMERICA'S

NATIONAL SECURITY AT RISK?

GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE, I'M

GEORGE THOMAS.

Wendy: AND I'M WENDY

GRIFFITH.

THERE IS A GROWING CONCERN

OVER ONE FOREIGN POLICY MESS

AFTER ANOTHER FOR THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION.

CRITICS SAY THAT'S BECAUSE

THE PRESIDENT'S NATIONAL

SECURITY COUNCIL IS MORE

POLITICAL THAN BIPARTISAN.

AS JENNIFER WES JENNIFER

WISHON REPORTS IN OUR TOP

STORY, IT ALL PUTS THE

SAFETY OF OUR NATION AT

RISK.

Reporter: AFTER THE

LATEST QUESTION TO PLAGUE

THE WHITE HOUSE, MANY

AMERICANS ARE WONDERING: DID

THE PRESIDENT KNOW SERGEANT

BOWE BERGDAHL MAY HAVE

DESERTED HIS POST?

WAS HE WARNED ABOUT THE

NATIONAL SECURITY

IMPLICATIONS OF RELEASING

FIVE HIGH-RANKING TALIBAN

OPERATIVES?

AND COULD HIS WHITE HOUSE

ANNOUNCEMENT WITH BERGDAHL'S

PARENTS HAVE BEEN A

POLITICAL SMOKE SCREEN TO

REDUCE HEAT OVER THE

VETERANS AFFAIRS' SCANDAL.

SOME ANALYSTS PLACE BLAME

FOR THE PRESIDENT'S FOREIGN

POLICY PROBLEMS AT THE FEET

OF HIS COUNCIL.

WE HAVE ABOUT THE MOST

POLITICAL NATIONAL SECURITY

COUNCIL WE HAVE EVER SEEN.

Reporter: PAUL WORKED

CLOSELY WITH PRESIDENT

BUSH'S TEAM.

THE COUNCIL IS MADE UP OF

THE PRESIDENT, VICE

PRESIDENT, CERTAIN CABINET

SECRETARIES AND INTELLIGENCE

OFFICIALS, ALONG WITH THE

PRESIDENT'S NATIONAL

SECURITY ADVISORS, CHIEFS OF

STAFF, AND OTHER INSIDERS.

IT'S PURPOSE: OFFER LOYAL

OPPOSITION ON HEAVY

AGENDAS.

BUT SOME SUGGEST THAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S COUNCIL IS

IN CONSTANT CAMPAIGN

CAMPAIGNING.

THERE ARE A LOT THAT HAVE

A LOT OF POLITICAL

EXPERIENCE AND CAMPAIGN

EXPERIENCE.

THAT'S WHAT THEY SPEND MORE

OF THEIR CAREER DOING.

Reporter: BEN RHODES

BEGAN WORKING WITH OBAMA AS

A SPEECH WRITER ON HIS FIRST

PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN.

TOMMY VITOR WHO LEFT LAST

YEAR ROSE QUICKLY FROM HIS

RANKS AS A VAN CAMPAIGNER.

AND HE MADE THIS GAFFE

REGARDING THE BENGHAZI

TERROR ATTACK.

DUDE, WE TALKED ABOUT

THIS TWO YEARS AGO.

Reporter: ACCORDING TO

BONICCELI, HE SAYS IT IS THE

AFTER NATHAN OAFTERMATH OF

A POLITICAL PROBLEM.

THEY'RE WRITING E-MAILS

TO EVERYBODY SAYING BLAME IT

ON A VIDEO.

Reporter: OVERALL,

AMERICANS DON'T LIKE WHAT

THEY SEE.

A POLL SHOWS ONLY 41%

APPROVE OF THE PRESIDENT'S

HANDLING OF THE NATIONAL

SECURITY POLICY.

JAMES JONES LEFT AFTER JUST

TWO YEARS, REPORTEDLY

FINDING THE POLITICS

UNBEARABLE.

AND A WALL STREET JOURNAL

COLUMN REPORTED THAT FORMER

CAMPAIGN MANAGER AND ADVISOR

DAVID BLUFF, WAS CALLED AT

ONE POINT TO HELP DISCUSSING

POSSIBLE MILITARY

INVOLVEMENT IN SYRIA.

CONVERSELY, ACCORDING TO BON

ICCELI, THEY DON'T HAVE

RELATIONS WITH THE

MILITARY.

EVEN DEMOCRATS AGREE THAT

THERE IS A BUBBLE AROUND THE

PRESIDENT THAT I WON, IT IS

MY WAY.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S FOREIGN POLICY

TEAM HAS WORKED HARD TO

DEFINE ITSELF AS THE

ANTI-BUSH ADMINISTRATION,

TAKING THE POSITION THAT THE

POWERFUL U.S. SHOULD TAKE A

STEP BACK, ALLOWING OTHER

INTERNATIONAL BODIES ARE

COUNTRIES TO TAKE THE LEAD,

A STRATEGY THAT HAS CREATED

A VACUUM.

IT LEADS TO VLADIMIR

PUTIN DOING WHAT HE WANTS TO

DO, AND THE CHINESE RATTLING

THE SEA.

I DON'T EXPECT A CHANGE, AND

I EXPECT HIM TO CONTINUE

DOWN THIS PATH, AND WE'LL

PROBABLY HAVE A LOT MORE OF

BUNGLING.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S TRADE FOR FIVE

TERRORISTS FOR BOWE

BERGDAHL, SAYS IT IS A MOVE

HE MADE ON A 2008 CAMPAIGN

PROMISE.

George: MEANWHILE, THE

LEADERS OF TWO CONGRESSIONAL

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEES HAVE

EMPLOYER QUESTIONS ABOUT THE

PRISONER SWAP THAT SET FIVE

TALIBAN PRISONERS FREE.

DIANNE FEINSTEIN HEADS THE

SENATE INTELLIGENCE

COMMITTEE, AND REPUBLICAN

MIKE ROGERS SHARES THE

COMMITTEE.

THEY WANT TO KNOW WHY THE

ADMINISTRATION DID NOT PRESS

FOR A WIDER SETTLEMENT WITH

THE TALIBAN TOç RELEASE THOSE

HIGH-RANKING CAPTORS.

INCLUDING SEEKINGç UNITY WITH

THE AFGHAN GOVERNMENT.

THIS WAS THE WRONG

MESSAGE AT THE WRONG TIME

AND WE'RE GOING TO PAY FOR

THIS DECISION FOR YEARS.

WE NEGOTIATED WITH THE

TERRORIST NETWORK, AND BY

THE WAY, IT HAPPENED BEFORE

THE ELECTION EVEN OCCURRED.

THIS WEEKEND -- THIS WEEKEND

THE TALIBAN TRIED TO

ASSASSINATE ONE OF THE

POLITICAL LEADERS, ABDULLAH

ABDULLAH, WHO IS RUNNING FOR

OFFICE IN AFGHANISTAN.

I THINK THIS WHOLE SORT

OF DEAL HAS BEEN ONE THAT

THE ADMINISTRATION HAS KEPT

VERY CLOSE.

AND IN THE EYES OF MANY OF

US, TOO CLOSE.

George: MEANWHILE,

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN

KERRY DEFENDED THE DEAL AND

SAID WHILE THE TALIBAN

LEADERS MIGHT GO BACK TO THE

BATTLE FIELD, THE U.S. CAN

AND WILL TAKE ACTION AGAINST

THEM.

THE PAKISTANI TALIBAN

ATTACKS RESPONSIBILITY FOR A

DEADLY ATTACK ON AN

AIRPORT.

THEY USED MACHINE GUNS AND

ROCKET LAUNCHERS.

AFTER SEVERAL HOURS OF

FIGHTING, THE POLICE FINALLY

REGAINED CONTROL.

BUT 18 PEOPLE, INCLUDING THE

10 GUNMEN, WERE KILLED.

THE TALIBAN SAYS THE ATTACK

WAS REVENGE FOR THE DEATH OF

A TALIBAN CHIEF WHO WAS

KILLED IN A DRONE STRIKE

BACK IN LAST NOVEMBER, AND

WARNS MORE ATTACKS ARE

COMING.

Wendy: LAS VEGAS POLICE

ARE STILL TRYING TO PINPOINT

A CLEAR MOTIVE FOR THE

SHOOTING SPREE THAT KILLED

TWO OF THEIR OWN OFFICERS

SUNDAY.

THERE ARE REPORTS THE AMBUSH

WAS POLITICALLY MOTIVATED,

THE SHOOTER SHOUTED "THIS IS

THE START OF A REVOLUTION"

BEFORE OPENING FIRE.

CAITLIN BURKE HAS DETAILS.

Reporter: THE AMBUSH

HAPPENED ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON

AT A LAS VEGAS PIZZA SHOP.

IT IS A TRAGIC DAY.

IT IS A VERY, VERY DIFFICULT

DAY.

Reporter: OFFICERS

ALLEN BECK AND IGOR SOLDO

WERE EATING LUNCH WHEN A

COUPLE WALKED IN AND AIMED

FIRE.

OFFICER BECK WAS A SENIOR

PATROL OFFICER WITH A WIFE

AND THREE CHILDREN.

SOLDO JOINED THE FORCE IN

2006, AND HE WAS MARRIED

WITH A BABY.

ONE OF THEM DID ATTEMPT TO

FIRE BACK.

I SAW THEIR GUNS IN THEIR

HANDS, AND HE TOLD ME TO

TELL THE COPS IT WAS A

REVOLUTION.

Reporter: THE LAS VEGAS

REVIEW IS REPORTING THAT

POLICE ARE LOOKING INTO A

POSSIBLE LINK INTO THE WHITE

SUPREMACY.

THE COUPLE IS SAID TO HAVE

DRAPED THE MURDERED OFFICERS

WITH A FLAG AND A YELLOW

BANNER, A COILED SNAKE, AND

THE WORDS, "DON'T TREAD ON

ME."

THE SUSPECTS TOOK THE

OFFICERS' WEAPONS AND

AMMUNITION TO THEM ON THE

WAY OUT THE DOOR, AND MADE A

STATEMENT SOMETHING TO THE

EFFECT OF, THIS IS A

REVOLUTION.

Reporter: FROM THERE

THE MAN AND WOMAN RAN ACROSS

THE STREET TO A WAL-MART AND

SHOT AND KILLED A THIRD

PERSON.

OFFICERS CAUGHT UP WITH HIM

AT THE BACK OF THE STORE.

THAT'S WHERE POLICE SAY THE

TWO CARRIED OUT A SUICIDE

PACT.

A SHORT TIME LATER, MORE

SHOTS WERE HEARD.

THE FEMALE SUSPECT SHOT THE

MALE SUSPECT AND THEN TOOK

HER OWN LIFE.

Reporter: LAS VEGAS

POLICE SPENT MOST OF THE

NIGHT SEARCHING AN APARTMENT

FOR EVIDENCE, AS THEY

STRUGGLED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT

MOTIVATED THE DEADLY

ATTACK.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

George: THE PRESIDENT

IS BY PASSING CONGRESS AND

HAS TAKEN EXECUTIVE ACTION

YET AGAIN, THIS TIME ON

BEHALF OF A POTENTIALLY

IMPORTANT MID-TERM VOTING

BLOCK.

TODAY OBAMA ANNOUNCED HE

WILL ALLOW MILLIONS MORE

STUDENT LOAN BORROWERS TO

TAP INTO THE FEDERAL PAY AS

YOU EARN PROGRAM.

IT ALLOWS FORMER STUDENTS TO

CAP THEIR LOAN PAYMENTS AT

10% OF THEIR MONTHLY

INCOME.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THE

LATEST.

President Obama: IN A

21st CENTURY ECONOMY, A

HIGHER EDUCATION IS THE

SINGLE BEST INVESTMENT YOU

CAN MAKE IN YOURSELVES AND

YOUR FUTURE.

AND WE'VE GOT TO MAKE SURE

THAT INVESTMENT PAYS OFF.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S EXECUTIVE ORDER

OPENS UP THE "PAY AS YOU

EARN" PROGRAM, ALLOWING

POTENTIALLY MILLIONS MORE

YOUNG PEOPLE TO

PARTICIPATE.

THE PROGRAM LIMITS PAYMENTS

ON STUDENT DEBT TO NO MORE

THAN 10% OF MONTHLY INCOME.

STUDENT LOAN DEBT IS A HUGE

ISSUE FOR MANY.

NATIONALLY, IT IS NEARLY

$$1 TRILLION, HIGHER THAN

CAR LOANS AND EVEN MORE THAN

CREDIT CARD DEBT.

I DO 100%.

I'M FUNDING IT ENTIRELY

THROUGH FEDERAL LOANS.

Reporter: YOUNG PEOPLE

MADE UP AN IMPORTANT PART OF

THE PRESIDENT'S VOTING BLOCK

IN 2008 AND 2012.

THERE IS CONCERN THEY MAY

NOT TURN OT FOR THIS YEAR'S

MID-TERM ELECTIONS.

ACTIONS LIKE THIS LATEST

EXECUTIVE ORDER COULD HELP,

AS WOULD LETTING COLLEGE

GRADS WITH HEAVY DEBT

REFINANCE THEIR LOANS.

CRITICS SAY OBAMA IS GOING

TOO FAR IN EXERCISING HIS

POWER.

EXECUTIVE ACTIONS IN RECENT

MONTHS INCLUDE THE BERGDAHL

DEAL, INTO RESTRICTIONS ON

CARBON EMISSIONS, AND AN

INCREASE IN MINIMUM WAGE FOR

WORKERS UNDER NEW FEDERAL

CONTRACTS.

JUST WHO WILL PAY FOR ALL OF

THE STUDENT DEBT RELIEF IS

ANOTHER CONCERN.

THE REFINANCE LEGISLATION

WOULD BE FUNDED BY NEW TAXES

ON SOME HIGH-INCOME

INDIVIDUALS.

HEATHER CELLS, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: NEED AN IMMUNE

SYSTEM BOOST?

A NEW STUDY FINDS THAT

FASTING FOR ABOUT THREE DAYS

COULD ACTUALLY REGENERATE

YOUR ENTIRE IMMUNE SYSTEM.

FASTING DIETS HAVE BEEN

CRITICIZED IN THE PAST, BUT

SCIENTISTS AT THE UNIVERSITY

OF SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA HAVE

DISCOVERED FASTING SEVERAL

DAYS CAN TRIGGER THE BODY TO

START PRODUCING NEW WHITE

BLOOD CELLS.

THEY ALSO BELIEVE IT COULD

LEAD TO HEALTHIER AGING,

BETTER RESULTS FROM

CHEMOTHERAPY AND HELP PEOPLE

WITH AUTOIMMUNENITY

DISORDER.

George: THEY HAVE

DELAYED GRANTING BENEFITS TO

GAY COUPLES WHO MARRIED LAST

DECEMBER.

MORE THAN 1,000 SAME-SEX

COUPLES WERE MARRIED.

THE U.S. SUPREME COURT

ISSUED A STAY OF THE RULING

JUST 17 DAYS LATER, LEAVING

THOSE COUPLES IN A LEGAL

LIMBO.

THE JUDGE SAID H UTAH MUST

RECOGNIZE THOSE BENEFITS,

BUT THE 10th CIRCUIT COURT

IS APPEALING.

Wendy: A FRESH BREATH

DRAWS WOMEN OUT OF DARKNESS

INTO THE LIGHT.

George: POPE FRANCIS

SAYS HE HOPES HIS PRAYER

SUMMIT WITH ISRAELI AND

PALESTINIAN LEADERS AT THE

VATICAN WILL HELP BRING

PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

HE SAYS TOO MANY CHILDREN

HAVE BEEN KILLED BY WAR.

HE SAYS PEACE, QUOTE,"CALLS

FOR THE COURAGE TO SAY YES

TO ENCOUNTER A NO TO

CONFLICT."

JEWISH, CHRISTIAN, AND

MUSLIM PRAYERS WERE OFFERED

IN THE VATICAN GARDENS.

SHIMON PERES AND PALESTINIAN

PRESIDENT MAHMOUD ABBAS BOTH

ATTENDED THE EVENT.

Wendy: NORTH KOREA HAS

DETAINED ANOTHER AMERICAN

TOURIST.

HE HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AT

56-YEAR-OLD JEFFREY EDWARD

FOLEY, A CHRISTIAN FROM

OHIO.

NORTH KOREAN AUTHORITIES SAY

THEY'RE INVESTIGATING ACTS

INCONSISTENT WITH THE

PURPOSE OF A TOURIST

INVEST.

VISIT.

THERE ARE REPORTS HE MAY

HAVE LEFT A BIBLE IN HIS

HOTEL ROOM.

HE IS THE THIRD U.S. CITIZEN

TO BE DETAINED IN NORTH

KOREA.

NIGERIA IS THE MOST VIOLENT

COUNTRY IN THE WORLD FOR

CHRISTIANS.

THE WEST AFRICAN NATION TOPS

THE "OPEN DOORS" TOP THEM

VIOLENT LIST.

"OPEN DOORS" REPORTEDLY

NEARLY 2100 CHRISTIAN MURDER

IN NIGERIA, WITH MORE THAN

3600 CHURCHES DESTROYED.

AND THE SPOKESPERSON SAYS IT

IS GETTING WORSE.

WE'RE SEEING IN 2014, THE

SECULAR AND NATIONAL AND

INTERNATIONAL NEWS IS

COVERING WHAT IS GOING ON

BECAUSE IT IS GETTING MORE

AND MORE HORRIFIC.

WITH THE KIDNAPPING OF THESE

GIRLS AND OTHER HORRIBLE

ATTACKS AGAINST CHRISTIAN

COMMUNITIES.

Wendy: CIVIL WAR AND

ISLAMIC ATTACKS AGAINST

CHRISTIANS CAUSED SYRIA TO

GAIN THE NUMBER TWO SPOT.

AND EGYPT IS NUMBER THREE ON

THE MOST VIOLENT COUNTRIES

FOR CHRISTIANS' LIST,

FOLLOWED BY MEXICO,

PAKISTAN, COLOMBIA, INDIA,

KENYA, AND IRAQ.

YOU CAN LEARN MORE ABOUT

THIS REPORT BY LOGGING ON TO

THE GLOBAL LANE BLOG AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

George: WHEN IT COMES

TO PERSECUTION OF

CHRISTIANS, ISLAMIC NATIONS

TOP THE CHARTS.

BUT THERE IS ANOTHER TREND

MOVING THROUGH THOSE

NATIONS.

MISSIONARY DAVID GARRISON

HAS WRITTEN A PROFOUND BOOK

ABOUT THE HUGE NUMBER OF

CHRISTIANS COMING TO LIFE IN

THE ISLAMIC WORLD.

THAT BOOK IS CALLED "A WIND

IN THE HOUSE OF ISLAM."

RECENTLY I HAD A CHANCE TO

SPEAK WITH HIM ABOUT IT.

WHAT DID YOU DISCOVER IN ALL

OF THESE INTERVIEWS, WHEN

YOU TRAVELLED AROUND THE

WORLD?

GEORGE, WHAT WE

DISCOVERED IS GOD IS AT WORK

IN THE MUSLIM WORLD.

HE IS DRAWING THOUSANDS UPON

THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS TO

FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST, FROM

ONE END OF THE MUSLIM WORLD

TO THE OTHER.

George: INTERESTING,

YOU DESCRIBE IN YOUR BOOK

HOW THERE IS A BREAKTHROUGH

THAT IS HAPPENING.ç

SOMETHING SPECIAL IS

HAPPENING REALLY SINCE THE

20th AND 21st CENTURY.

WHAT HAPPENED FOR THE 13

CENTURIES?

SEVERAL CENTURIES MUSLIMS

AND CHRISTIANS WERE

INTERACTING WITH EACH OTHER

ON A DAILY BASIS.

AND YET TO MOVE FORWARD

NEARLY 12 AND A HALF

CENTURIES BEFORE YOU FIND

THE FIRST MUSLIM MOVEMENT TO

CHRIST.

IN THE FIRST 13 OF THE

21st CENTURY, WE'VE SEEN

69 MOVEMENTS.

THIS IS, INDEED, THE

GREATEST TURNING OF MUSLIMS

TO JESUS CHRIST.

George: AND WHAT DO YOU

THINK IS THE IMPETUS?

WHAT IS HAPPENING?

WHAT IS GOD DOING IN THIS

TIME PERIOD, IN OUR

GENERATION, IN OUR LIFETIME,

THAT PERHAPS HE DIDN'T DO

GENERATIONS AGO?

I LIST IN THE BOOK 10

BRIDGES OF GOD, 10 THINGS

THAT GOD IS USING, BECAUSE

WE'RE HEARING IT FROM THE

TESTIMONIES OF THESE MUSLIM

BACKGROUND BELIEVERS.

THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT

ARE POSSIBLE TODAY, LIKE

CBN, THAT WEREN'T POSSIBLE

20 YEARS AGO.

George: THE INTERNET?

EXACTLY.

GOD IS USING MANY WAYS TO

GET THE GOSPEL TO PEOPLE.

George: IS THERE A

COMMON THREAT THAT YOU SEE

OF HOW GOD IS INTERCEPTING

THE LIVES OF THESE MUSLIMS?

THERE IS A VARIETY.

AND THAT'S WHY WE TALK ABOUT

NINE ROOMS IN THE HOUSE OF

ISLAM.

BUT THERE IS ALSO COMMON

THREADS, THE WORD OF GOD,

THE POWER OF THE GOSPEL, AND

THE ENCOUNTER WITH THE

LIVING CHRIST.

THIS IS NOT A RELIGION THAT

MUSLIMS ARE EMBRACING, OR AN

ETIOLOGY OR CULTURE.

THEY'RE MEETING JESUS, AND

JESUS IS CHANGING THEIR

LIVES.

George: WHAT DOES THAT

WIND LOOK AND SOUND LIKE, AS

IT BLOWS THROUGH THE HOUSE

OF ISLAM?

THAT'S THE GREAT THING.

IT SOUNDS FAMILIAR.

IT SOUNDS LIKE THE SAME WIND

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT

TRANSFORMED MY LIFE AND YOUR

LIFE.

WHEN WE SEE AND MEET AND

LISTEN TO THE LIVES AND THE

STORIES OF THESE MUSLIM

BACKGROUND BELIEVERS, WE

RECOGNIZE A BROTHER AND A

SISTER.

BECAUSE THE SAME HOLY SPIRIT

THAT IN MY HEART AND YOUR

HEART IS CLEARLY AT WORK IN

THEIR HEART AT WELL.

George: YOU HAVE A

SECTION AT THE VERY END

CALLED "OUR RESPONSE."

IN ESSENCE, YOUR MESSAGE TO

THE AMERICAN CHURCH IS WE

SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID OF

ISLAM, MUSLIMS, AND WE

SHOULD NOT BE AFRAID OF WHAT

GOD IS DOING WITHIN THE

MUSLIM WORLD.

TALK ABOUT THAT.

WELL, THERE HAS NEVER

BEEN A TIME OF GREATER

CONFLICT BETWEEN THE HOUSE

OF ISLAM AND THE WEST.

YET AT THIS TIME IS THE

MOMENT WHEN THE HOLY SPIRIT

IS DRAWING MUSLIMS TO FAITH

IN JESUS CHRIST.

I HOPE THAT BROTHERS AND

SISTERS AROUND THE WORLD WHO

RECOGNIZE THE WORK OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT WILL SEE THAT

THIS IS OUR MOMENT TO BE

LOVING AND KIND AND

WITNESSING AND PRAYING FOR

MUSLIMS BECAUSE GOD IS, IN

FACT, DOING A GREAT WORK IN

OUR DAY.

WE NEED TO GET ON BOARD WITH

IT.

WE NEED TO BE A PART OF WHAT

GOD IS DOING.

George: FANTASTIC.

IT IS AN INCREDIBLE BOOK.

IT IS CALLED "A WIND IN THE

HOUSE OF ISLAM."

GOD IS DRAWING MUSLIMS

AROUND THE WORLD TO FAITH IN

JESUS CHRIST.

YOU CAN GET IT WHEREVER

BOOKS ARE SOLD, AS WELL AS

ONLINE.

DAVID GARRISON, THANK YOU SO

MUCH FOR YOUR WORK AND ALL

THAT YOU DO FOR THE KINGDOM

OF GOD.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH,

GEORGE.

Wendy: UP NEXT, STREAMS

IN THE DESERT.

HOW ISRAEL KEEPS THE WATER

FLOWING, DESPITE THE DRIEST

WINTER ON RECORD.

George: AFTER ONE OF

THE DRIEST WINTERS ON

RECORD, WATER IS FLOWING

FREELY IN ISRAEL.

Wendy: AND AS JULIE

STAHL COMPLAINS, IT

EXPLAINS, IT IS PART OF AN

AGGRESSIVE PROGRAM TO TAKE

THE SALT OUT OF THE SEA

WATER.

Reporter: FOR YEARS,

THE GROWING DROUGHT DEPLETED

THE BIBLICAL SEA OF

GALILEE.

IT FORCED ISRAEL TO LOOK FOR

OTHER OPTIONS.

THE ONLY SOLUTIONS,

REALLY, IS BY SEA.

AND THE RECYCLING.

WE MUST INCREASE ORT

ARTIFICIALLY THE QUANTITIES

OF WATER IN THE AREA IN

ORDER TO SURVIVE IN THIS

AREA.

Reporter: WHILE THE

MIDDLE EAST MAY BE OIL-RICH,

IT IS WATER-POOR.

THIS REGION IS VERY AR

RID.

SOME OF THE PREVIOUS WARS IN

THIS REGION STARTED OVER

WATER.

YOU CAN SEE WATER WAS EVEN

PART OF THE HISTORY BETWEEN

ISRAEL AND JORDAN.

Reporter: OSHALOALOM

FELDERS, AND RECENTLY CBN

WAS GIVEN A LOOK INSIDE THE

PLANT IN THE COASTAL CITY OF

MEDERA.

THIS IS A DECONTAMINATION

PLANT.

THE TECHNOLOGY IS

WORLDWIDE.

Reporter: THIS PLANT

CURRENTLY SUPPLIES ABOUT 10%

OF ISRAEL'S DRINKING WATER,

DESADESALI NATEDDESALINATED.

I.D. E. HAS BUILT 400 PLANTS

IN 40 COUNTRIES.

AT ONE TIME IT EVEN SUPPLIED

IRAN, ISRAEL'S ARCH ENEMY,

WITH WATER.

ISRAEL HOPES IT CAN MADE ITS

GROWING WATER NEEDS THROUGH

DESALINATION.

THERE ARE THREE LARGE

PLANTS THAT WOULD BRING THE

DESALINATION IN ISRAEL TO

80%, AND IT WOULD MEET 60%

OF OVERALL NEEDS IN ISRAEL.

Reporter: WITH THE

WORLD POPULATION INCREASING,

HE SAYS COUNTRIES LI LIKE

CHINA, INDIA, AND EVEN SOME

PARTS OF THE U.S., WILL RELY

ON DESALINATION PLANTS FOR

WATER.

AND ISRAEL CAN HELP WITH THE

TECHNOLOGY.

JULIE STAHL, CBN NEWS,

MEDERA, ISRAEL.

George: UP NEXT, AN

AMAZING STORY COMING UP OUT

OF THE TRAGEDY OF THE

SEATTLE SHOOTING.

Wendy: FINALLY TODAY,

HERO OF THE SHOOTING THAT

INJURED AT SEATTLE PACIFIC

UNIVERSITY LAST WEEK.

George: THE COMMUNITY

CELEBRATE JOHN MEASE, THE

STUDENT WHO PEPPERSPRAYED

MAESE IS GETTING MARRIED

LINK, AND STRANGERS ARE

HONEYMOON.

IN ALL, PEOPLE HAVE GIVEN

ABOUT $60,000, TO ALSO COVER

THE FUNERAL CUFTS O COSTS

Wendy: CONGRATULATIONS
