YOU'VE HEARD THE PHRASE

TWO-STATE SOLUTION.

THE PRESIDENT TALKED ABOUT

THE TWO-STATE SOLUTION.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAID HE

WAS NO LONGER FOR A

TWO-STATE SOLUTION.

AND HE SAID, YEAH, I WAS

JUST TALKING, BUT REALLY I'M

FOR IT.

WHO WILL BE ISRAELIS

NEGOTIATE WITH TO GET A

SECOND STATE?

WHO IS IN CHARGE?

WILL THEY NEGOTIATE WITH

HAMAS, WHICH IS A TERRORIST

ORGANIZATION IN CONTROL OF

GAZA THAT HAS SWORN TO

DESTROY ISRAEL?

WILL THEY NEGOTIATE WITH

MAHMOUD ABBAS, THE LEADER OF

THE PALESTINIAN STATE,

SUPPOSEDLY, A TERRIBLY

CORRUPT ORGANIZATION?

WHO HAS THE POWER TO

NEGOTIATE.

WELL, WE'VE GOT AN EXCLUSIVE

FROM OUR TEAM OVER IN

JERUSALEM TO TELL YOU

EXACTLY WHO THE PLAYERS ARE

AND WHAT WILL HAPPEN.

AS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

SEEMS GEARED UP FOR A FIGHT

THAT THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND.

Terry: CHRIS MITCHELL

BRINGS US THE STORY FROM THE

WEST BANK IN ISRAEL.

Reporter: MAHMOUD ABBAS

HAS LED THE FIGHT FORpp

PALESTINIANS SINCE THE 2004

DEATH OF CHAIRMAN YASSER

ARAFAT.

IN ADDITION TO LEADING A

LEADERSHIP OPENING, ARAFAT

LEFT BEHIND SECRET BANK

ACCOUNTS, FILLED WITH A

BILLION DOLLARS OR MORE IN

PUBLIC FUNDS AND

INTERNATIONAL AID TAKEN FROM

HIS OWN PEOPLE.

AS ABBAS TOOK OVER,

PALESTINIANS HOPED FOR

CHANGE.

WHEN HE CAME TO POWER, HE

SPOKE ABOUT REFORMING THE

SECURITY SERVICES AND THE

JUDICIARY.

IT MEANS THAT HE RECOGNIZED

THAT THERE IS CORRUPTION.

Reporter: AKMED LIVES

IN A WEST BANK CITY UNDER

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY

CONTROL.

WE HAVE HIDDEN HIS IDENTITY

TO PROTECT HIS LIFE.

WHAT HAPPENED WAS THAT

THEY CREATED WAYS TO COVER

UP CORRUPTION WHEN

COMPLAINTS WERE MADE.

Reporter: ABOUT TWO

MILLION PEOPLE LIVE HERE IN

THE WEST BANK, BIBLICAL

JUDEA AND SAMARIA.

AND WHILE THE WORLD BLAMES

ISRAEL FOR OPPRESSING

PALESTINIANS, SOME SAY THE

PALESTINIANS THEMSELVES ARE

MOST OFTEN THE OPPRESSORS.

MOST OF THE THE

PALESTINIANS KNOW ABOUT THE

CORRUPTION, BUT THE NORMAL

CITIZENS ARE AFRAID BECAUSE

THERE IS TERROR AGAINST

THEM, AND THEY KNOW THEY

CANNOT DO ANYTHING.

AND THEY ARE THEIR FAMILIES

AND CHILDREN COULD BE

SUBJECTED TO DANGERS AND

SEXUAL ABUSE.

Reporter: AKMED SAID

AUTHORITIES LIE ABOUT

PEOPLE, SAYING THEY'RE

DEALING DRUGS OR ACTING

IMMORALLY IF THEY HAVE A

PERSONAL VENDETTA AGAINST

SOMEBODY.

I KNOW IN A CASE THEY

ASKED SOMEBODY TO GIVE FATAH

HIS PAY.

AND HE REFUSED.

AFTER THAT, THE GROUP CAME

INTO HIS HOME AND ABUSED HIM

AND HIS FAMILY AND KILLED

HIM, AND BEAT HIS CHILDREN

VERY BADLY.

WHEN PEOPLE INTERVENED, THEY

SAID THIS MAN WAS A OFFICIAL

FROM ISRAEL.

IF SOMEBODY IN THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY WAS TO

STAND IN THE PUBLIC SQUARE

AND CRITICIZE MAHMOUD ABBAS,

THEY WILL BE ARRESTED, MANY

TIMES TORTURED, AND MANY

TIMES THEY DISAPPEAR.

Reporter: AND TO MAKE

THINGS WORSE, THIS

CORRUPTION AND OPPRESSION IS

FINANCIALLY SUPPORTED BY

TAXPAYERS IN THE WEST.

ACCORDING TO A 2014

CONGRESSIONAL REPORT, THE

U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS

COMMITTED MORE THAN

$5 BILLION TO THE

PALESTINIAN SINCE THE

MID-1990s.

YET THE AVERAGE

PALESTINIAN IS STILL LIVING

IN ABJECT POP VERT.

POVERTY.

Reporter: WHILE ABBAS

IS MUSHIN PUSHING FOR A

PALESTINIAN STATE, SOME ARE

SAYING IT WOULD ONLY BE A

DISASTER.

CHRIS MITCHELL, THE WEST

BANK, BIBLICAL JUDEA AND

SAMARIA.

Pat: A STORY WE RAN A

COUPLE OF DAYS AGO WAS THAT

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WAS

THINKING OF GOING DIRECTLY

TO THE UNITED NATIONS TO GET

THEM TO DO WHAT CANNOT TAKE

PLACE, APPARENTLY IN A

BILATERAL AGREEMENT BETWEEN

ISRAEL AND THE

PALESTINIANS.

HOW CAN ISRAEL NEGOTIATE

WITH A PHANTOM.

THERE IS NOBODY IN CHARGE

OVER THERE.

WELL, BENJAMIN NETANYAHU'S

RE-ELECTION HAS THROWN THE

DEBATE OVER A PALESTINIAN

STATE INTO CHAOS.

WENDY GRIFFITH HAS MORE.

Wendy: THANK YOU, PAT.

NETANYAHU HAS DRAWN FIRE FOR

SAYING ON ELECTION DAY THAT

FOREIGN-BACKED LEFTIST

GROUPS WERE BUSING ARABS TO

THE POLLS TO DEFEAT HIM.

MAHMOUD ABBAS CALLED THAT

RACIST.

AND ABBAS NOW SUGGESTS A

PALESTINIAN STATE IS

IMPOSSIBLE.

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS

THREATHREATENED TO CHANGE

HIS SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL AT

THE U.N., THAT'S AFTER

NETANYAHU SAID A PALESTINIAN

STATE WOULD NOT HAPPEN ON

HIS WATCH.

HE SAYS THE BACKING OF A

PALESTINIAN STATE DEPENDED

ON SEVERAL CONDITIONS,

INCLUDING THEM RECOGNIZING

SAFE BORDERS AND A UNITED

ISRAEL AS CAPITAL.

ON THURSDAY, MARCO RUBIO

LAUNCHED A SCORCHING ATTACK

AGAINST THE ADMINISTRATION'S

TREATMENT OF ISRAEL AND

NETANYAHU.

THIS PRESIDENT IS MAKING

AN HISTORIC MISTAKE.

ALLIES HAVE DIFFERENCES, BUT

ALLIES LIKE ISRAEL -- WHEN

YOU HAVE A DIFFERENCE THAT

IS PUBLIC AND EMBOLDENS

THEIR ENEMIES TO LAUNCH MORE

ROCKETS, TO LAUNCH MORE

TERRORIST ATTACKS, AND TO

DELEGITIMIZE ISRAEL'S RIGHT

TO EXIST, AND THIS IS WHAT

THEY'RE DOING.

Wendy: A PALESTINIAN

COUNCIL DECIDED ON THURSDAY

TO PURSUE WAR CRIMES CHARGES

AGAINST ISRAEL AT THE??

INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL?

COURT.?

> WELL, PRESIDENT OBAMA

HAS MADE?? A DIRECT APPEAL TO??

THE IRANIAN PEOPLE ON A

NUCLEAR DEAL.

THE PRESIDENT TOLD THE

PEOPLE AND LEADERS OF IRAN

IN A VIDEO THAT THE NUCLEAR

TALKS OFFER THE BEST

OPPORTUNITY IN DECADES FOR

THE TWO COUNTRIES TO AGREE

ON A DEAL.

BUT BOTH DEMOCRATS AND

REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS HAVE

SERIOUS QUESTIONS ABOUT THE

TALKS.

CHARLENE AARON HAS THE

STORY.

Reporter: IN A VIDEO

MESSAGE, PRESIDENT OBAMA

TOLD TEHRAN THAT ANOTHER

MOMENT TO PURSUE BETTER

RELATIONS BETWEEN THE IRAN

AND THE U.S. MAY NOT COME

AGAIN SOON.

President Obama: THE

DAYS AND WEEKS AHEAD WILL BE

CRITICAL.

OUR NEGOTIATIONS HAVE MADE

PROGRESS, BUT GAPS REMAIN.

THERE ARE PEOPLE IN BOTH OUR

COUNTRIES AND BEYOND WHO

OPPOSE A DIPLOMATIC

RESOLUTION.

MY MESSAGE TO YOU, THE

PEOPLECH IRAN PEOPLE OF

IRAN, WE HAVE TO SPEAK UP.

Reporter: MIXED

MESSAGES EMERGED FROM

NUCLEAR TALKS IN

SWITZERLAND, WHERE JOHN

KERRY AND HIS IRANIAN

COUNTER-PART HAILED

PROGRESS.

THIS MOMENT MAY NOT COME

AGAIN SOON.

I BELIEVE OUR NATIONS HAVE

AN OPPORTUNITY WE SHOULD NOT

MISS.

Reporter: BUT ACCORDING

TO THE "WALL STREET

JOURNAL," TALKS HAVE

REPORTEDLY HIT A SNAG OVER

ENDING SANCTIONS.

IRAN WANTS U.S. SANCTIONS

LIFTED AS THE DEAL BEGINS TO

TAKE EFFECT, BUT THE U.S.

AND ITS EUROPEAN ALLIES

DEMAND THAT SANCTIONS BE

SUSPENDED OR PHASED OUT OVER

A PERIOD OF YEARS.

CRITICS SAY THE SANCTIONS

HAVE HURT IRAN, WHICH IS WHY

THEY'RE AT THE TALKS, AND

THE SANCTIONS SHOULD NOT BE

EASED.

THE DEAL WOULD REPORTEDLY

ALLOW IRAN TO KEEP SOME

CENTE CENTRIFUGES WORKING.

REPUBLICANS WARN THAT A

POSSIBLE DEAL COULD LET IRAN

DEVELOP NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

AND WILL IT LET IRAN GO

AHEAD AND BUILD THOSE

WEAPONS?

ARE THEY OR ARE THEY NOTúñ

ABOUT TO MAKE A VERY BAD

DEAL, THAT WILL ALLOW THE

IRANIANS, ONE OF THE WORST

REGIMES IN THE WORLD, TO

HAVE THEIR NUCLEAR

INFRASTRUCTURE.

Reporter: AS CRITICS

RAISE SERIOUS QUESTIONS

ABOUT THE PROPOSED DEAL,

MEMBERS OF BOTH PARTIES SAY

CONGRESS SHOULD REVIEW ANY

PROPOSED DEAL WITH IRAN, SO

THEY CAN DECIDE IF IT WOULD

REALLY STOP IRAN'S NUCLEAR

PROGRAM.

IF NO DEAL IS REACHED, IRAN

COULD GO AHEAD WITH ITS

NUCLEAR PROJECTS, AND

CRITICS WONDER HOW SERIOUS

IRAN IS ABOUT STOPPING THE

PROGRAM ANYWAY, DEAL OR NO

DEAL.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS.

Wendy: THANKS,

CHARLENE.

SHE BRINGS UP A GOOD POINT,

PAT.

DO YOU THINK IRAN IS REALLY

SERIES ABOUT A DEAL?

Pat: OF COURSE THEY'RE

NOT.

THE IRANIANS ARE LAUGHING AT

THIS THINKLESS PRESIDENT WE

HAVE.

THEY KNOW HE IS ON THE RUN

TO DESPERATELY GET SOME KIND

OF AN AGREEMENT.

THEY HAVE THESE

INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC

LAUNCH CAPABILITY ROCKETS.

THEY ARE NOT IN THIS DEAL AT

ALL.

THEY CAN CONTINUE TO BUILD

THESE ROCKETS, AND THEY ARE,

BEFORE LONG, GOING TO BE

ABLE TO MERV THEM SO YOU CAN

HAVE MULTIPLE ENTRY

EXPLOSIVES GOING ON.

THEY HAVE, PROBABLY, ONE

BOMB RIGHT NOW AND THEY'VE

GOT ANOTHER COMING.

AS LINDSAY GRAHAM SAYS, FROM

SOUTH CAROLINA, HE SAYS

THESE SANCTIONS WERE IMPOSED

BY CONGRESS, NOT BY THE

PRESIDENT.

THE PRESIDENT CANNOT

UNILATERALLY LIFT SANCTIONS

THAT CONGRESS IMPOSED.

UNLESS THE CONGRESS GOES

ALONG WITH IT, THE SANCTIONS

WILL STAY IN PLACE.

FURTHERMORE, LINDSAY GRAHAM

SAID VERY INTERESTING, HE

SAID AS FAR AS THE UNITED

NATIONS, IF THEY TRY TO

BYPASS THE CONGRESS AND GO

DIRECTLY TO THE UNITED

NATIONS, WE'LL CUT OFF

FUNDING TO THE UNITED

NATIONS.

SO THEY'VE GOT A PRETTY

HEAVY STICK AND IT IS TIME

THEY START USING IT.

BUT THIS WHOLE THING IS A

CHARADE.

THE IRANIANS ARE LAUGHING AT

US BECAUSE WE'RE GIVING,

GIVING, GIVING, AND THEY

FIGURE, SUCKERS, LET'S GET

SOME MORE STUFF.

THEY ARE RUG TRADERS FROM

THE RUG BIZARRE.

THEY KNOW HOW TO DEAL.

OUR PRESIDENT DOESN'T.

WENDY?

Wendy: HERE AT HOME,

REPUBLICAN SENATE MAJORITY

LEADER MITCH McCONNELL HAS

STARTED AN AGGRESSIVE

CAMPAIGN TO BLOCK PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S AGENDA ON CLIMATE

CHANGE.

THE "NEW YORK TIMES" REPORTS

THAT McCONNELL IS TRYING

TO STOP NEW REGULATIONS FROM

THE ENVIRONMENTALIST

PROTECTION AGENCY.

THOSE REGULATIONS ARE AIMED

AT CUTTING CARBON POLLUTION

FROM COAL-FIRED POWER

PLANTS.

McCONNELL HAS SENT A

LETTER TO EVERY GOVERNOR IN

THE U.S. WITH A LEGAL

ARGUMENT, TELLING THEM WHY

THEY DON'T NEED TO GO ALONG

WITH THE REGULATIONS.

ONE OF THE SUPPORTING

LAWYERS IS LAURENCE TRIBE,

FROM HARVARD, WHO SAYS THE

E.P.A. IS GOING FAR BEYOND

ITS LEGAL AUTHORITY.

PAT, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT

THIS?

Pat: NO QUESTION

THEY'RE GOING BEYOND THIS.

I RAN INTO THIS SOME TIME

AGO IN CALIFORNIA.

THE E.P.A. IS INCREDIBLE.

THEY WANT TO TAKE ALL OF THE

POWER THAT HAS BEEN GIVEN TO

THEM.

IT IS INTERESTING THAT

LAURENCE TRIBE IS HIRED BY

PEABODY COAL, AND HE IS

PROBABLY GETTING FEES IN THE

MIDDLE SEVEN FIGURES.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY ARE,

BUT I IMAGINE IT IS A LOT.

BUT WHAT HE IS SAYING -- HE

IS A GOOD CONSTITUTIONAL

LAWYER, AND HE IS TELLING

THEM LIKE IT IS.

THE BIG THING FOR

McDONNELL TO DO IN

CONGRESS AND THE OTHER

REPUBLICANS, IS TO HOLD

FIRM.

DON'T GIVE ON ANY JUDICIAL

NOMINEES.

DON'T GIVE ON THE NOMINATION

OF THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL.

DON'T GIVE

SPINE, AND HOPEFULLY THEY'RE

BEGINNING TO DO IT.

> IT IS CRAZY WHAT IS

GOING ON IN SCHOOLS.

YOU SAY, COULD THIS POSSIBLY

BE HAPPENING IN AMERICA?

WENDY, WHAT HAPPENED IN NEW

YORK?

Wendy: A HIGH SCHOOL IN

UP STATE NEW YORK IS

APOLOGIZING FOR RECITING THE

"PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE" IN

ARABIC.

AFTER COMPLAINTS FROM

PARENTS AND STUDENTS, THE

PLEDGE WAS READ IN ARABIC

DURING WEDNESDAY MORNING'S

ANNOUNCEMENT AT PINE BROOK

HIGH SCHOOL.

THE DISTRICT SUPERINTENDENT

TOLD THE TIMES HERALD RECORD

OF MIDDLETOWN, SHE RECEIVED

FROM COMPLAINTS FROM

RESIDENTS WHO HAD LOST

RELATIVES IN AFGHANISTAN AND

FROM SOME JEWISH PARENTS.

I THINK IT IS STUPID

BECAUSE THE PLEDGE IS FOR

AMERICA, AND THE SOLDIERS

FIGHT FOR THAT PLEDGE TO BE

SAID IN ENGLISH.

I THINK IT IS PRETTY

DISRESPECTFUL TO THE

COUNTRY.

EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED

BETWEEN OUR COUNTRY AND

THEM, AND WE'RE SAYING OUR

COUNTRY'S PLEDGE IN THEIR

LANGUAGE.

Wendy: THE PRINCIPAL

APOLOGIZED TO THE STUDENTS.

IT WAS BEING RECITED IN

DIFFERENT LANGUAGES FOR

FOREIGN LANGUAGE WEEK.

THE SOLAR ECLIPSE LASTED

ABOUT TWO AND A HALF MINUTES

UNDER SOME CLEAR SKIES ON

SOME NORWEGIAN ISLANDS.

THE CLOUDS BLOCKED THE VIEW

IN SOME OTHER AREAS.

> IT IS THE FIRST DAY OF

SPRING, BUT THIS YEAR'S

LONG, COLD WINTER REFUSES TO

GO AWAY IN SOME AREAS.

SOME AREAS ARE EXPECTING

SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW

TODAY.

NEW YORK WILL GET UP TO FIVE

INCHES, BUT SOUTH CENTRAL

PENNSYLVANIA, THEY'RE IN THE

BULL'S EYE OF THIS STORM

WITH POSSIBLY UP TO

10 INCHES OF SNOW.

WESTERN MARYLAND COULD GET

AS MUCH AS EIGHT INCHES ON

THIS FIRST DAY OF SPRING.

PAT?

Pat: THE DEMOCRATS ARE

SAYING HILLARY MAY BE WEAK,

SO WHY DON'T WE GO BACK TO

AL GORE AND SEE IF HE COULD

BE OUR CANDIDATE.

HE WOULD HAVE A LARGE GROUP

OF SUPPORTERS FOR THE

ENVIRONMENTAL MOVEMENT.

MOST OF THE COUNTRY DOESN'T

BELIEVE ALL OF THAT

NONSENSE, BUT NEVERTHELESS

THERE IS A CORE OF

CLIMATOLOGISTS.

THEY ARE PEOPLE WHO GO

OUTSIDE AND SEE SNOW, AND

THEY SAY, YOU'RE A CLIMATE

DENIER.

WELL, I DENY GLOBAL

WARMING.
