Efrem: TODAY ON

"NEWSWATCH"...

WHEN YOU SEE THE

DEVASTATION, IT IS A

MIRACLE THERE WERE NO

DEATHS.

Efrem: SEVERE STORMS

SWEEP ACROSS THE UNITED

STATES.

WE'LL SHOW YOU THE DAMAGE

AND WHERE MORE BAD WEATHER

IS EXPECTED.

IT'S THE HAIFA.

I WAS NOT AFRAID.

DEATH WAS WITH ALL OF US

AT ANY TIME.

Efrem: PLUS SHE FACED

THE DEATH SENTENCE FOR HER

FAITH.

WHY SHE SAYS QUESTIONING

GOD WAS NEVER AN OPTION.

> AND SAYING SORRY, HOW

BRITISH CHRISTIANS ARE

MAKING AMENDS FOR

PREVENTING THOUSANDS OF

JEWS FROM REACHING THEIR

BIBLICAL HOMELAND.

*

Efrem: THANKS FOR

JOINING US HERE.

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

SEVERE STORMS PUMMELLED

THE EAST COAST OVERNIGHT,

LEAVING NEARLY A HALF

MILLION PEOPLE WITHOUT

POWER.

DOWNING TREES AND RIPPING

HOMES APART.

STATES OF EMERGENCY

DECLARED FOR SOME PARTS OF

THE NORTHEAST.

OUR CAITLIN BURKE IS ON

THE STORY.

Reporter: THE SEVERE

WEATHER SYSTEM RESPONSIBLE

FOR CREATING DAMAGE ACROSS

THE MIDWEST ON MONDAY

MOVED INTO THE NORTHEAST

ON TUESDAY NIGHT, JUST IN

TIME TO DISRUPT THE

EVENING COMMUTE.

VIOLENT STORMS KNOCKED OUT

POWER TO MORE THAN HALF A

MILLION PEOPLE, AT ONE

POINT LEAVING MORE THAN

700,000 IN THE DARK.

IN PHILADELPHIA, WIND

GUSTS OF CLOSE TO 70 MILES

PER HOUR WERE RECORDED AS

THE STORM MOVES THROUGH,

DAMAGING HOMES AND RIPPING

TREES FROM THE GROUND.

IT WAS THE CRAZY WINDS.

THEY WERE COMING STRAIGHT

DOWN THE STREET.

I WAS ACTUALLY ON MY

PORCH.

IT WAS SCARY FOR A COUPLE

OF MINUTES.

IT WAS AWFUL.

THE SKY GOT REALLY DARK.

ALL OF THIS RAIN, WIND.

IT JUST DEVASTATED OUR

BACKYARD.

OUR NEIGHBORS, THE

SHINGLES WILL GLOWING OFF

AND THE TREES WERE FALLING

DOWN.

Reporter: IN THE

MIDWEST, RESIDENTS ARE

CLEANING UP FROM MONDAY'S

STORMS, EMBRACING FOR MORE

SEVERE WEATHER.

AN EF-3, AND EF-2 STORMS

TOUCHED DOWN IN ILLINOIS.

IT IS A MIRACLE THERE

WERE NO DEATHS OR

LIFE-THREATENING INJURIES,

WHEN YOU SEE HOW

DEVASTATING THE STORM WAS.

WE'RE VERY BLESSED IN THAT

REGARD.

Reporter: COLE CITY,

ILLINOIS, SAW THE WORST OF

MONDAY'S STORMS, WHERE THE

EF-3 TORNADO TOUCHED DOWN.

THERE ARE CARS UPSIDE

DOWN AND TREES ON HOUSES.

ALL OF THE GLASS JUST

EXPLODED, LIKE A BIG

VACUUM, AND BOOM.

Reporter: TODAY, A

NEW SET OF STORMS EXPECTED

TO HIT THE MIDWEST.

FORECASTERS WARN THEY

COULD CONTINUE THROUGH THE

END OF THE WEEK.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: THE PENTAGON

IS SENDING U.S. MILITARY

FORCES INTO FORMER

SOVIET-BLOCKED NATIONS.

THE FORCE CONSISTS OF 250

TANKS, ARMORED VEHICLES

AND OTHER EQUIPMENT.

ASHTON CARTER ALSO PLEDGED

U.S. AIRCRAFT AND OTHER

FORCES TO A NATO REACTION

FORCE.

NATO ALLIES ARE WORRIED

AFTER RUSSIA TOOK THE

UKRAINE.

CARTER SAYS THE U.S. IS

NOT SEEKING CONFRONTATION

WITH RUSSIA, BUT WE WILL

DEFEND OUR ALLIES IN THE

REGION.

WE WILL STAND UP TO

RUSSIA'S ACTIONS AND THEIR

ATTEMPTS TO REESTABLISH A

SOVIET-ERA SPHERE OF

INFLUENCE.

THE UNITED STATES WILL NOT

LET RUSSIA DRAG US BACK TO

THE PAST.

Efrem: U.S. FORCES

WILL BE SPREAD AMONG

BULGARIA, LITHUANIA,

POLAND, AND ROMANIA.

> ISIS IS CELEBRATING

THE MONTH OF RAMADAN BY

GIVING AWAY FEMALE SLAVES.

THE ISLAMIC STATE LAUNCHED

THE CONTEST THROUGHOUT

THE al-BARAKA PROVINCE.

ON A TWITTER ANNOUNCEMENT,

IT INVITES PARTICIPANTS TO

MEMORIZE THE MOST WAR-LIKE

PASSAGES IN THE QURAN.

ISIS HAS BEEN KIDNAPPING

WOMEN FROM CHRISTIAN AND

OTHER RELIGIOUS MINORITIES

IN THE REGION.

> A NORTH CAROLINA TEEN

HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH

PLANNING TO KILL A LARGE

NUMBER OF U.S. CITIZENS

FOR ISIS.

INVESTIGATORS SAY

19-YEAR-OLD JUSTIN

SULLIVAN WAS TURNED IN BY

HIS OWN FATHER AFTER THE

TIP AN UNDERCOVER AGENT

CONTACTED SULLIVAN, WHO

TOLD THE AGENT HE

CONVERTED TO ISLAM AND WAS

A MUJAHEED.

HE WAS PLANNING TO BUY AN

AR-15 RIFLE TO GUN DOWN

PEOPLE AT A BAR OR

CONCERT.

AUTHORITIES SAY HE ALSO

PLANNED TO USE A

BIOLOGICAL BOMB TO KILL

1,000 PEOPLE.

HE IS BELIEVED TO HAVE

BEEN RADICALIZED AFTER

WATCHING ISIS PROPAGANDA

ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

> ISRAEL WARNED

CIVILIANS BEFORE LAUNCHING

AIRSTRIKES, AND THEN HAMAS

PUT CIVILIANS IN THE WAY

OF THOSE BOMBS.

AND NOW THE U.N. IS

ACCUSING ISRAEL OF WAR

CRIMES.

THE REPORT IMPLIES ISRAEL

DELIBERATELY KILLED

CIVILIANS.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

ISRAEL IS REJECTING THOSE

ACCUSATIONS.

Reporter: ISRAEL SAYS

THE 200-PAGE REPORT WAS

POLITICAL MOTIVATED AND

MORALLY FLAWED FROM THE

OUTSET.

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU BLASTED

THE COUNCIL.

THE UNITED NATIONS'

HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL HAS A

SINGULAR OBSESSION WITH

ISRAEL.

IT HAS PASSED MORE

RESOLUTIONS AGAINST ISRAEL

THAN AGAINST SYRIA, NORTH

KOREA AND IRAN COMBINED.

IN FACT, IT HAS PASSED

MORE RESOLUTIONS AGAINST

ISRAEL THAN AGAINST ALL OF

THE COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD

COMBINED.

Reporter: LAST WEEK

SENIOR GENERALS FROM THE

U.S. AND OTHER NATO'S

COUNTRIES RELEASED THEIR

OWN INDEPENDENT REPORT.

THEY SAID ISRAEL NOT ONLY

MET INTERNATIONAL

STANDARDS REGARDING THE

ARMED CONFLICT, BUT IN

MANY CASES SIGNIFICANTLY

EXCEEDED THOSE STANDARDS.

SOME SAY THAT ISRAEL'S

STANDARD IS SO HIGH IT

CHALLENGES OTHER WESTERN

NATIONS.

DURING THE 50-DAY

CONFLICT, THE U.N.

COMMISSION SAID 1462

PALESTINIAN CIVILIANS WERE

KILLED, A THIRD OF THEM

CHILDREN.

IT CRITICIZED ISRAEL FOR

DISPROPORTIONATE FORCE AND

FAILING TO CHANGE ITS

TACTICS DURING THE WAR

WHEN CIVILIANS WERE

KILLED, EVEN THOUGH ISRAEL

WARNED CIVILIANS IN

SEVERAL WAYS.

IT IS HARD FOR ME TO

SEE HOW ISRAEL COULD HAVE

DONE BETTER.

WHAT COULD IT HAVE DONE

MORE THAN WARN THE PEOPLE?

WHAT MORE COULD IT HAVE

DONE THAN MAKE PHONE CALLS

TO INDIVIDUALS INSIDE

BUILDINGS ABOUT TO BE

ATTACKED.

Reporter: DAVID

BENJAMIN IS THE FORMER

LEGAL ADVISOR FOR THE GAZA

STRIP.

WHILE THE REPORT SAYS

HAMAS LAUNCH MORE THAN

4,000 ROCKETS AND 1700

MORTERS AT ISRAEL, IT

STOPPED SHORT OF BLAMING

HAMAS FOR STARTING THE

WAR.

IT PUTS THE BLOCKADE

AGAINST GAZA AS BEING THE

ROOT CAUSE.

Reporter: IRONICALLY,

HAMAS ALSO REJECTED THE

FINDINGS OF THE REPORT

BECAUSEOF ITS COMPARISON

BETWEEN ISRAEL AND HAMAS.

I THINK THAT THE FATAL

MISTAKE AND BIG PROBLEM IN

THIS REPORT IS ALL THE

TIME THEY TRIED TO MAKE A

COMPARISON.

Reporter: MARY DAVIS,

CHAIR OF THE COMMISSION,

SAID THEY DON'T HAVE THE

EVIDENCE TO PROVE WAR

CRIMES WERE COMMITTED.

IT IS A GREAT SOURCE OF

REGRET THAT ON THIS

OCCASION WE COULD NOT

TRAVEL TO ISRAEL AND THE

OCCUPIED TERRITORY, TO

MEET THEM FACE TO FACE.

THERE IS A BUILT-IN

PROBLEM.

MOST OF THE DECISIONS TO

ATTACK CERTAIN BUILDINGS

AND TARGETS ARE BASED ON

SECRET INTELLIGENCE.

AND THAT SECRET

INTELLIGENCE, YOU CAN'T

HAVE THE ENEMY KNOWING

ABOUT.

Reporter:

PALESTINIANS INTEND TO USE

THE REPORT WHEN THEY FILE

CLAIMS OF WAR CRIMES

AGAINST ISRAEL AT THE

INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL

COURT.

BENJAMIN SAID IT IS A

GREAT PROPAGANDA TOOL FOR

THEM, EVEN IF IT DOESN'T

HAVE MUCH SUBSTANCE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

Efrem: TURNL TURNING NOW TO

HEALTH NEWS, THE CASE FOR

MEDICAL MARIJUANA MAY BE

OVERSTATED.

THAT IS THE CONCLUSION IN

THE AMERICAN MEDICAL

ASSOCIATION.

IT ANALYZED 79 STUDIES,

INVOLVING MORE THAN 6,000

PATIENTS, AND SAYS THERE

IS NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO

SHOW THE DRUG HELPS MANY

CONDITIONS IT IS SUPPOSED

TO, INCLUDING ANXIETY,

SLEEP DISORDERS, AND

TOURETTE'S SYNDROME.

MEDICAL MARIJUANA IS LEGAL

IN 23 STATES AND THE

DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

> MOST AMERICANS ARE TOO

FAT.

A NEW STUDY SHOWS

THREE-QUARTERS OF MEN AND

TWO-THIRDS OF WOMEN ARE

NOW OBESE OR OVERWEIGHT.

THAT IS AN INCREASE OF

MORE THAN 10% SINCE THE

1990s.

RESEARCHERS AT WASHINGTON

UNIVERSITY'S SCHOOL OF

MEDICINE STUDIED THE

INFORMATION ON MORE THAN

15,000 MEN AND WOMEN,

AGES 25 AND OLDER FROM

2007 TO 2012.

THEY ESTIMATE 67.6 MILLION

AMERICANS WERE OBESE IN

2012, AND 65.2 MILLION

WERE OVERWEIGHT.

> SHE WAS HELD IN A

SUDANESE PRISON, FACING A

DEATH SENTENCE FOR HER

CHRISTIAN FAITH.

NOW ONE YEAR LATER, MAR MARIAM

IBRAHEEM IS FREE TO TELL

HER OWN STORY.

Efrem: THE DEADLINE

FOR A POTENTIAL NUCLEAR

DEAL WITH IRAN IS DAYS

AWAY.

A NON-PROFIT IS USING A

SHORT FILM SERIES TO BREAK

DOWN THE DANGERS OF A

NUCLEAR DEAL WITH IRAN.

CBN SPOKE WITH THE GROUP

ABOUT WHAT THIS DEAL COULD

MEAN FOR AMERICA.

WHEN IRAN GETS BILLIONS

AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS AS

A RESULT OF THIS NUCLEAR

DEAL, IT WILL NOT ONLY BE

FUNNELED BACK INTO THEIR

NUCLEAR PROGRAM, BUT BACK

INTO THE TERRORIST

APPARATUS THAT IS HELPING

TO KILL OUR SOLDIERS IN

AFGHANISTAN AND WILL

LIKELY KILL OUR SOLDIERS

IN IRAQ AS WELL.

SO THERE IS A VERY REAL

COST HERE.

Efrem: TO LEARN MORE

ABOUT THE CLARION

PROJECT'S FILM SERIES, LOG

ON TO cbnnews.com.

> THIS WEEK MARKS THE

1,000th DAY SINCE PASTOR

SAEED ABEDINI HAVE BEEN IN

PRISON FOR HIS CHRISTIAN

FAITH.

SUPPORTERS GATHERED IN

WASHINGTON TO PLACE A

THOUSAND FLOWERS IN FRONT

OF THE CAPITAL IN HONOR OF

SAEED AND OTHER IMPRISONED

CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD.

WE CANNOT MOVE FORWARD

WITH AN IRANIAN NUCLEAR

DEAL WHILE PASTOR SAEED IS

IN PRISON, AS WELL AS

THREE OTHER AMERICANS.

WE BELIEVE THAT AS

CHRISTIANS PRAY AROUND THE

WORLD, WE CAN SEE PASTOR

SAEED'S RELEASE.

Efrem: THE REVEREND

IS CALLING ON LEGISLATORS

TO MAKE SAEED'S RETURN A

TOP PRIORITY.

> JUST ONE YEAR AGO

MARIAM IBRAHEEM WAS IN A

SUDANESE PRISON FACING A

DEATH SENTENCE.

HER CRIME: BEING A

CHRISTIAN.

HER ONE-YEAR-OLD WAS BY

HER SIDE AND SHE GAVE

BIRTH TO A SECOND CHILD

INSIDE A JAIL CELL.

I SPOKE WITH HER ABOUT HER

REMARKABLE STORY ON THE

ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF

HER MIRACULOUS RELEASE

FROM PRISON.

MARIAM IBRAHEEM STANDS

CENTER STAGE TO THANK

AMERICAN AUDIENCES FOR

PRAYERS...

FREE MARIAM!

Efrem: ...AND FOR

PROTESTS FOR HER FREEDOM.

JUST A YEAR AGO, IN

MUSLIM-DOMINATED SUDAN,

MARIAM WAS IN PRISON

FACING DEATH.

A COURT SENTENCED HER TO

BE FLOGGED AND THEN HANGED

FOR BEING A CHRISTIAN AND

ALSO MARRYING ONE.

WERE YOU WORRIED YOU WERE

GOING TO DIE IN PRISON?

I WAS NOT AFRAID.

DEATH IS WITH ALL OF US AT

ANY TIME.

Efrem: HER QUIET

COURAGE IS STRONG, SO

STRONG I CAN FEEL IT JUST

SITTING ACROSS FROM HER.

SHE SPENT FIVE MONTHS IN

PRISON WITH HER

ONE-YEAR-OLD AT HER SIDE,

AND GAVE BIRTH TO A SECOND

CHILD INSIDE THE JAIL

CELL.

HOW ARE THE CHILDREN?

MY CHILDREN ARE DOING

OKAY.

THEIR HEALTH IS OKAY,

ACCEPT FOR MAYA.

I'M A BIT WORRIED ABOUT

HER HEALTH IN THE FUTURE,

DUE TO HER BEING BORN IN

PRISON.

Efrem: DO YOU STILL

THINK ABOUT THE TIME IN

PRISON IN SUDAN?

WHAT I SAW IN PRISON,

NOTHING IS FAIR.

EVEN IF YOU HAVE A SMALL

CRIME, THEY WILL GIVE YOU

A BIG SENTENCE FOR IT,

WHICH IS NOT WORTH IT.

I FEEL LIKE IT IS NOT FAIR

AT ALL, ESPECIALLY FOR

WOMEN.

THERE ARE A LOT OF

CHRISTIAN WOMEN WHO ARE IN

PRISON THERE.

AND THEY GET SENTENCED AS

THEY WERE MUSLIMS, AND

THAT'S NOT FAIR.

Efrem: SO THEY COULD

DIE?

IT HAPPENED.

IT'S A LOT.

ESPECIALLY THE CHILDREN

WHO ARE THERE WITH THEIR

MOTHERS.

Efrem: THEY KILLED

THE CHILDREN, TOO?

THEY'RE NOT

INTENTIONALLY KILLING

THEM, BUT THE SITUATION

AND THE DIFFICULTIES IN

PRISON ARE KILLING THEM.

Efrem: MARIAM AND HER

BABIES SURVIVED THE HARSH

CONDITIONS AND REUNITED

WITH HER HUSBAND, DANIEL.

FOR THE JOURNEY TO HIS

HOME IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.

THE TRIP INCLUDED A STOP

IN ITALY FOR AN AUDIENCE

WITH THE POPE.

MANY IN THE WORLD FOLLOWED

YOUR STORY AND WERE

PRAYING FOR YOU.

AND WERE HAPPY TO SEE YOU

MAKE IT TO THE U.S.

IS THERE ANYTHING ABOUT

YOUR STORY THAT WE DON'T

KNOW, THAT YOU WANT US TO

KNOW?

MY STORY IS VERY LONG.

ALL OF THE THINGS THAT YOU

SAW ON THE MEDIA WAS JUST

THE LAST-MINUTE THINGS.

Efrem: IT IS ALSO A

STORY MARIAM AND HER

HUSBAND ARE FIGHTING TO

SHARE THEMSELVES.

PRODUCERS STOPPED PLANS

FOR A MOVIE AFTER THE

COUPLE SPOKE OUT AGAINST

IT.

AND AN ITALIAN JOURNALIST

HAS WRITTEN A BOOK.

BUT MARIAM IS AT WORK

WRITING THE STORY ONLY SHE

CAN TELL.

DID YOU EVER SIT AND ASK

GOD, WHY ME?

WHY ME?

NO.

I NEVER ASKED GOD WHY ME,

BUT I ACCEPTED THE FACT

THAT IT WAS A TEST FROM

GOD.

Efrem: WHAT DID THAT

EXPERIENCE IN PRISON DO TO

YOUR CHRISTIAN FAITH?

BEING IN PRISON

STRENTHENED MY FAITH EVEN

MORE AND MORE.

AND I'M SURE DEEP INSIDE

THAT THE OTHER FIGHT OF

THE ISLAMIC ARE NOT HAPPY

WITH WHAT I DID.

Efrem: MARIAM'S BRAVE

STAND IS BRINGING HER

HONOR IN AMERICA, LIKE

RECEIVING THE PRESIDENT'S

AWARD FROM THE NATIONAL

RELIGIOUS BROADCASTERS

ASSOCIATION.

WHAT DOES YOUR FAMILY AND

YOU NEED MOST RIGHT NOW?

THE MOST THING THAT MY

FAMILY NEEDS IS FOR MY

HUSBAND TO GET EMPLOYED

AND FOR MYSELF TO GET MY

PAPERWORK IN ORDER FOR ME

TO HELP EVERYONE DREAM, TO

LIVE HAPPY, TO LIVE IN

PEACE, AND IN GOOD HEALTH.

THAT'S ALL I ASK FOR.

AND THAT'S WHAT I WANT FOR

MY FAMILY.

Efrem: WOULD YOU GO

BACK TO SUDAN?

I WILL HOPE TO DO THAT

ONE DAY.

Efrem: AND WHAT DO

YOU WANT TO DO THERE?

I WILL DO GOD'S WILL.

IF HE HAS A JOB FOR ME

THERE.

I ALWAYS DREAMED OF

HELPING OTHERS IN SUDAN,

AND I WILL HOPE FOR GOD TO

BRING THAT TO PASS.

ALL I CAN DO IS HELP

OTHERS, JUST LIKE I WAS

HELPED.

Efrem: HER HEART TO

HELP BEGINS AT HOME IN

SUDAN, BUT MARIAM HOPES TO

SOME DAY SERVE PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD.

AND ONE OF THE BIGGEST

NEEDS FOR THEIR FAMILY

RIGHT NOW IS A VAN THAT IS

EQUIPPED FOR HER HUSBAND

TO BE ABLE TO DRIVE.

THEY ARE CLOSE TO RAISING

FUNDS FOR THAT.

> THE GOVERNMENT

PREVENTED THOUSANDS OF

JEWS FROM FINDING SAFETY

DURING THE HOLOCAUST.

UP NEXT, HEAR HOW

CHRISTIANS OR MAKING

AMENDS.

Efrem: SOME 70 YEARS

AGO, THE BRITISH

GOVERNMENT PREVENTED

THOUSANDS OF JEWS FROM

REACHING THEIR BIBLICAL

HOMELAND.

NOW BRITISH CHRISTIANS

WANT TO APOLOGIZE AND MAKE

AMENDS.

CORRESPONDENT JULIE STAAL

HAS THIS STORY.

YOU'RE LATE.

I AM TRYING TO SAVE A

JEWISH CHILD.

Q%çr LADY, YOU'RE 10 YEARS

LATE.

JEWISH CHILDREN WERE

BUTCHERED LIKE ANIMALS.

Reporter: THE

RENOWNED MOVIE, EXODUS,

STARRING PAUL NEWMAN,

DEPICTED THE EVENTS THAT

HAPPENED.

THEY TURNED AWAY THOUSANDS

OF JEWS ESCAPING EUROPE.

THIS HAIFA PORT WAS KNOWN

AS "THE DOCK OF TEARS."

FROM 1938 TO 1948, THE

BRITISH PREVENTED MORE

THAN 90 SHIPS FROM DOCKING

HERE.

THEY WERE CARRYING TENS OF

THOUSANDS OF JEWS FLEEING

EUROPE, TRYING TO RETURN

TO THEIR BIBLICAL

HOMELAND.

I'M HERE TO COMMEMORATE

THOSE JEWS WHO SUFFERED OR

DIED AS A RESULT OF THE

SHAMEFUL POLICIES OF THE

BRITISH GOVERNMENT OF THE

DAY.

WE TURNED THEM AWAY,

AND WE PUT THEM IN CAMPS,

AND EVEN SOME OF THEM WERE

RETURNED TO DEPORTATION

CAMPS IN GERMANY.

AND OTHERS WHO WEREN'T

TURNED AWAY FROM THEIR

LAND WERE ACTUALLY

INCARCERATED HERE IN THIS

DETENTION CAMP.

Reporter: THE BRITISH

BASICALLY LOCKED UP

THOUSANDS OF JEWISH

REFUGEES HERE AT THIS÷wú;

DETENTION CAMP.

THEY SPRAYED THE NEWCOMERS

WITH PESTICIDE, SENT THEM

TO SHOWERS, AND SEPARATED

THE MEN FROM THE WOMEN.

IT IS PART OF HISTORY

OFTEN LOST BETWEEN WORLD

WAR II AND THE FOUNDING OF

THE JEWISH STATE.

BUT ROSIE ROSS AND OTHERS

HAVOTHERSDID NOT FORGET.

THERE IS A NEED FOR

PEOPLE FROM BRITAIN TO

REALLY CONFESS AND PREPENT REPENT

FOR WHAT BRITAIN DID

DURING THAT TIME.

Reporter: SOME 200

BRITISH CHRISTIANS, AS

WELL AS JEWISH VICTIMS OF

THAT TIME CAME TOGETHER

FIRST IN THE HAIFA PORT

AND THEN AT THE DETENTION

CAMP.

AS WE HAVE TAKEN UP

CONCESSIONS AND PRAYERS

WITH DEEP SORROW FOR OUR

NATION'S RENEGING ON THE

DECLARATION AND TURNING

OUR BACK UPON THE JEWISH

PEOPLE.

WE KNOW THAT THE PAST

CANNOT BE CHANGED, BUT IT

CAN BE REDEEMED.

Reporter: THE

CHRISTIANS HANDED OUT

BIBLES TO MARK THE

INCIDENT WHEN A BRITISH

SHIP COMMANDER ORDERED THE

BURNING OF ALL BOOKS IN

HEBREW IN YIDDISH,

INCLUDING BIEBLTION.

BIBLES.

SURVIVORS HAD MIXED

REACTION.

IF I FORGIVE THEM, WILL

IT RAISE THE DEAD?

THERE IS NO FORGIVENESS,

NONE.

NOTHING IN THE WORLD CAN

BRING THEM BACK.

I WANTED TO MEET OTHER

BRITISH PEOPLE, TO HEAR

FROM THEM WHAT THEIR

OPINION ABOUT THE EVENT

IS.

AND NOW I SEE IT IS NOT

ONLY AMAZING, BUT ALSO

ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS.

IT IS VERY, VERY

IMPORTANT.

I'M VERY GLAD TO BE IN

THIS EVENT.

Reporter: KEY NOTE

SPEAKER LORD SIMON ISAACS

REDDING SAID THE BRITISH

COURT ON IMMIGRATION

BREACHED THEIR CONTRACT

WITH THE JEWISH PEOPLE.

THAT CONTRACT WAS IN

1917, AND THE TREATY IN

1920, AND THAT WAS ALL

RATIFIED IN THE TREATY OF

1923.

IT IS A CONTRACT THAT

ESSENTIALLY THE BRITISH

GOVERNMENT BROKE.

Reporter: HE SAID

THERE WERE TWO REASON?

PEACE WITH THE ARABS

AND THE LABOR GOVERNMENT.

Reporter: REDDING

HOPES THE BRITISH

GOVERNMENT ADMITS ITS

MISTAKE IN TIME FOR THE

ANNIVERSARY OF THE

BALFORE.

THIS BRITISH COMMANDER OF

FORCES IN AFGHANISTAN SAYS

THERE IS A MESSAGE FOR

TODAY.

NOT TO CONDEMN ISRAEL

WHEN IT SHOULDN'T BE

CONDEMNED, BUT TO STAND UP

AND SUPPORT ISRAEL, AS

ISRAEL SO OFTEN SUPPORTS

US.

Reporter: JULIE

STAAL, HAIFA PORT AND

ISRAEL.

Efrem: AS LONG AS

THERE IS BREATH, THERE IS

TIME FOR FORGIVENESS AND

REDEMPTION.

WE WILL BE BACK.

Efrem: AMELIA EARHART

BROKE THE GLASS CEILING IN

1932 WHEN SHE BECAME THE

FIRST FEMALE PILOT TO FLY

ACROSS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN.

87 YEARS LATER, AN ALL

FEMALE AIR RACE

COMMEMORATES HER

ACCOMPLISHMENTS, AND IT

EXPANDS ABOUT 2400 MIMES.

THE PARTICIPANTS ARE ALL

WOMEN, RANGING IN AGES

FROM 17 TO 90.

RACERS MAKE STOPS AT

CHECK-POINTS IN SEVEN

STATES.

CBN NEWS CAUGHT UP WITH A

PAIR IN THE LONE STAR WHO

CALL THEMSELVES THE TEXAS

STARS.

I STARTED WORKING ON

CARS WHEN I WENT TO

COLLEGE, WITH MY DAD.

AND THEN I THOUGHT I'D TRY

PLANES.

SOMETIMES YOU HEAR THE

PHRASE, "THE SKY IS THE

LIMIT."

THE SKY IS NOT THE LIMIT.

THE SKY IS FOR THE PILOTS.

FOR OUR CAREERS, WE'RE

GOING TO BE SPENDING MORE

TIME IN THE SKIES.

I'D LIKE TO SAY THAT THE

SKY IS HOME; IT'S NOT THE

LIMIT.

Efrem: FOR MORE

INFORMATION ABOUT THE RACE

AND TO TRACK THE PROGRESS

OF THE TEAM, GO TO CBN CBN

cbnnews.com.

TODAY'S WORD IS

FORGIVENESS.

IT BROUGHT SEVERAL POPULAR

SONGS TO MIND LIKE "LET IT

GO JOANN," AND "SHAKE IT OFF."

REMEMBER THIS, FAILING TO

FORGIVE IS A PRISON, BUT

THE PERSON WHO IS LOCKED

UP IS YOU.

SO WHY SIT IN A JAIL CELL

WHEN YOU HOLD THE KEY TO

BREAK FREE.

LET'S FOLLOW THE LEAD OF

THE FAMILIES WE'VE SEEN IN

CHARLESTON THIS WEEK, AND

FREELY GIVE FORGIVENESS,

KNOWING THAT IS WHAT OUR

GOD REQUIRES.

> THAT IS GOING TO DO IT

FOR THIS EDITION OF CBN

"NEWSWATCH."
