Chris: THIS WEEK ON

"JERUSALEM DATELINE,"

REVELATIONS THAT ISRAEL

PLANNED TO ATTACK IRAN'S

NUCLEAR FACILITY THREE

TIMES.

WHAT IMPACT WILL IT HAVE

AFTER THE U.S. AND SIX

WORLD POWERS SIGN THEIR

DEAL WITH IRAN?

> PLUS, WE TAKE TO THE

STREETS TO SEE WHAT IERTLE

ISRAELIS THINK.

AND THE SHI'ITE/SUNNI

DIVIDE, IS IT FRACTORING

THE MIDDLE EAST?

> HELLO, AND WELCOME TO

THIS EDITION OF "JERUSALEM

DATELINE." I'M CHRIS

MITCHELL.

COMING TO YOU THIS WEEK

FROM JERUSALEM'S LARGEST

OPEN AIR MARKET.

AND IT IS FULL OF SIGHTS

AND SOUNDS, AND LATER IN

THE BROADCAST, JULIE STAAL

WILL BE TALKING TO SOME OF

THE PEOPLE IN THE MARKET.

> FIRST, AN AHUD BARACK

OBAMA HAD A STUNNING

REVELATION.

HE AND ISRAELIS PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU WERE PREPARED TO

ATTACK IRAN THREE TIMES,

BETWEEN 2010 AND 2012,

WHEN HE SERVED AS DEFENSE

MINISTER.

THE REVELATIONS CAME WHEN

ISRAEL'S CHANNEL TWO

PLAYED AUDIO RECORDINGS.

BARACK OBAMHE SAYS TWO CABINET

MINISTERS, CURRENT DEFENSE

MINISTER MOSHIALAN, AND

THE CURRENT INFRASTRUCTURE

MINISTER BACKED DOWN FROMh

THE PLAN.

THEY QUESTIONED BARACK'S

VIEW OF THE EVENTS AND WHY

THE MILITARY SENSOR

ALLOWED THE RECORDING TO

BE PLAYED THAT REVEALED

ONE OF THE COUNTRY'S

DEEPEST SECRETS.

THE RECORDING CAME FROM

INTERVIEWS BARACK

CONDUCTED FOR A BOOK ABOUT

HIMSELF CALLED "MY LIFE'S

WARS," AND IT WAS SUPPOSED

TO BE OFF THE RECORD.

THE REVELATIONS COME AT A

SENSITIVE TIME, WHEN MANY

WONDER IF ISRAEL IS STILL

POISED TO ATTACK IRAN

AFTER THE RECENT NUCLEAR

AGREEMENT.

IN THE MEANTIME, AS

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

PREPARE TO VOTE ON THE

IRANIAN NUCLEAR DEAL, THE

A.P. RELEASED THE TEXT OF

THE A SECRET AGREEMENT

BETWEEN IRAN AND THE IAEA.

IT SAYS IRAN WILL PROVIDE

PICTURES AND SAMPLE FROM

THE PARCHAN MILITARY SITE,

THE SITE WHERE MANY

BELIEVE IRAN IS DEVELOPING

A TRIGGER FOR AN ATOMIC

BOMB, AND THEY CONTINUED

THEIR WAR OF WORDS AGAIN

ISRAEL.

THE HEZBOLLAH CHIEF SAID

WE BELIEVE WITH CERTAINTY

THAT ISRAEL, THIS

CANCEROUS TUMOR, IS HEADED

FOR EXTINCTION, AND THAT

PALESTINIAN AND JERUSALEM

WILL BE RETURNED TO THEIR

PEOPLE.

AND A MEDIA OUTLET

ASSOCIATED WITH IRAN'S

REVOLUTIONARY GUARD

RELEASED AN VIDEO ON

YouTube SHOWING AN

IRANIAN INVASION OF

ISRAEL.

JULIE STAAL TALKED TO SOME

PEOPLE HERE IN THE MARKET

ABOUT HOW ISRAEL SHOULD

DEAL WITH IRAN.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

THINK ISRAEL SHOULD DO

REGARDING IRAN?

I THINK IRAN SHOULD NOT

HAVE THE POWER TO BE

DESTROYING NATIONS.

IN SOME WAY, ATTACK

THEM.

NOT BY A HUGE FORCE OR

SOMETHING LIKE THAT, BUT

VERY SMALL, AND DESTROY

BASICALLY THE ATOMIC OR

THE NUKES, WHAT THEY HAVE.

NOTHING.

BE CALM.

WE DON'T WANT ANY WAR

ANYMORE.

I THINK ISRAEL NEEDS TO

ATTACK IRAN.

IF ISRAEL WILL DO NOTHING,

SO ANYBODY CAN DO

ANYTHING.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

WAR IS NOT THE ANSWER?

ISRAEL SHOULD GIVE IT

TIME.

GIVE IT TIME AND WATCH.

ISRAEL SHOULD WAIT UNTIL

THE RIGHT TIME AND THEN

COMBINE FORCES WITH THE

UNITED STATES AND DO IT.

THE ISRAELI POPULATION

NEEDS TO LIVE IN

TRANQUILITY.

THEY CANNOT CONTINUE TO

LIVE IN STRESS FOR YEARS

AND YEARS.

I THINK, ACTUALLY, THAT --

LET'S HOPE THAT NEXT YEAR

THERE WILL BE A NEW

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED

STATES WITH A LITTLE BIT

MORE SYMPATHY FOR ISRAEL

AND MAYBE THINGS WILL

CHANGE.

Reporter: WHAT DO YOU

THINK ABOUT THE IRANIAN

PEOPLE?

ISRAEL HAD VERY GOOD

CONTACT WITH IRAN BEFORE

'77, BEFORE THE AYATOLLAH

TOOK OVER.

WHAT I KNOW OF MOST OF THE

COMMON PEOPLE, THEY ARE

VERY NICE PEOPLE, LIKE US,

AND WE WANT TO LIVE IN

PEACE.

I THINK THEY'RE,

UNFORTUNATELY, GOVERNED BY

PEOPLE WHO DON'T CARE

ABOUT THEIR OWN PEOPLE.

SO THEY'RE ACTUALLY --

WELL, THEY'RE -- IT'S NOT

THEIR FAULT.

MY PARENTS ARE IRANIAN.

I'M IRANIAN.

I THINK THAT THE PEOPLE

THERE ARE -- PART OF THEM

MAY BE NICE, AND PART OF

THEM NOT.

BUT, YES, THE

GOVERNMENT -- I THINK THEY

ARE NOT.

Chris: WELL, THE

POWDER KEG KNOWN AS THE

MIDEAST FACES ANOTHER

THREAT, PITTING IRAN

AGAINST ISIS.

ISIS ARE SUNNI MUSLIMS.

AND WHILE THEY FACE COMMON

ENEMIES, THEY ALSO HATE

EACH OTHER.

AND AS ERICK STAKELBECK

REPORTS, THIS HAS MAJOR

IMPLICATIONS FOR AMERICA

AND ITS ALLIES IN THE

REGION.

ONE SIDE LEADS CHANTS

OF DEATH TO AMERICA AND

CALLS THE UNITED STATES

THE GREAT SATAN.

THE OTHER BEHEADS AMERICAN

JOURNALISTS, AND CALLS ON

MUSLIMS TO ATTACK THE U.S.

HOMELAND.

IRAN'S LEADERS AND ISIS

HAVE MUCH IN COMMON:

HATRED FOR ISRAEL AND THE

MIDWEST.

YET IRAN AND ITS PROXY,

HEZBOLLAH ARE NOW FIGHTING

ISIS IN IRAQ AND SYRIA.

IT IS THE MAIN

BATTLEGROUND IN A GROWING

WAR FOR REGIONAL SUPREMACY

BETWEEN SUNNI AND SHI'A

JIHADISTS.

IF YOU LOOK AT THE

MIDDLE EAST TODAY, YOU

COULD BE EXCUSED FOR BEING

REALLY CONFUSED.

WE HAVE SUNNI JIHADIS ON

ONE SIDE WHO DON'T LIKE

THE WEST, BUT WHO ARE ALSO

FIGHTING SHI'A JIHADIS,

AND ON THE OTHER SIDE THEY

ALSO DON'T LIKE THE U.S.,

BUT THEY DON'T LIKE EACH

OTHER.

THIS MAN HAS WORKED FOR

THE F.B.I. AND THE

DEPARTMENT OF TREASURY.

THE SHI'AS AND THE

SUNNIS ARE VERY MUCH AT

LOGGER HEADS.

THEY MAY SHARE A HATRED OF

ISRAEL, THEY MAY SHARE

HATRED OF THE WEST,

CERTAINLY SUSPICION OF THE

WEST, BUT THIS

SECTARIANISM IS THE

DOMINANT ISSUE RIGHT NOW.

Reporter: THE MAIN

BATTLEGROUND FOR THE

INTERISLAM CONFLICT IS

SYRIA.

ON THE SUNNI SIDE, THERE

ARE ISIS, al-QAEDA, AND

OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS.

THESE GROUPS HAVE BEEN

KNOWN TO BATTLE EACH

OTHER, HAVE BEEN SUPPORTED

TO VARYING DEGREES BY

VARYING GOVERNMENTS, LIKE

TURKEY.

AND BOTH ARE PROPING UP

THE REGIME OF BASHAR

al-ASSAD.

THE SUNNI-SHI'A CONFLICT

IS ALSO RAGING IN IRAQ,

LEBANON, AND YEMEN.

LEMMON SAYS THE NUCLEAR

DEAL RECENTLY STRUCK HAS

ONLY HEIGHTENED TENSIONS.

PEOPLE ARE ALSO VERY

CONCERNED ABOUT THE IRAN

DEAL, WHICH APPEARS TO BE

SOME TO BE EMBRACING AND

LEGITIMIZING THE ISLAMIC

REPUBLIC OF IRAN.

SUNNI MUSLIMS COMPRISE

ABOUT 85% OF THE WORLD'S

MUSLIM POPULATION, AND

SHI'AS MAKE UP ONLY ABOUT

15%.

THE TWO SIDES SPLIT IN THE

7th CENTURY BECAUSE THEY

DISAGREED OVER WHO SHOULD

SUCCEED ISLAM'S PROFIT

MUHAMMAD.

SHI'AS FELT IT SHOULD BE

SOMEONE FROM MUHAMMAD

DIRECT BLOOD LINE.

SUNNIS DISAGREED.

THEY HAVE BEEN IN CONFLICT

EVER SINCE IN THEIR

INTERPRETATION OF ISLAM.

SUNNI ISIS, FOR EXAMPLE,

CONSIDERS ALL SHI'AS AP

APOSTATES, WHO MUST BE

KILLED.

BUT ELLIOT SAYS THE REASON

RUNS DEEPER.

HE SAYS SHI'A IRAN HAS

SUPPORTED SUNNI GROUPS

AGAINST ISRAEL AND THE

WEST.

WHY ARE ISIS AND IRAN

FIGHTING EACH OTHER?

THEY BOTH HATE AMERICA?

WHY ARE THEY FIGHTING EACH

OTHER?

THE SIMPLE REASON IS

POWER.

HE SAYS THEY BOTH WANT

TO DOMINATE THE REGION AND

ARE STANDING IN EACH

OTHER'S WAYS.

THESE ARE FASCIST

REGIMES ARE ORGANIZATIONS.

AN INTERESTING FACT IS

THE GROWING RELATIONSHIP

BETWEEN ISRAEL AND ITS

ARAB NEIGHBORS IN EGYPT,

JORDAN, AND SAUDI ARABIA.

THEY'RE WORKING VERY,

VERY CLOSELY WITH THE

ISRAELIS BECAUSE THEY HAVE

SHARED INTERESTS AND

SHARED CONCERNS ABOUT THE

JIHADISTS ON BOTH SIDES OF

THIS CONFLICT.

Reporter: IT IS A

CONCERN STARED B SHARED BY THE

UNITED STATES, WHICH

CONTINUES TO BE THE MAIN

TARGET FOR JIHADISTS OF

ALL STRIPES.

Chris: WHILE ISIS IS

SELLING SEX SLAVES.

THE ENVOY ON SEXUAL

VIOLENCE SAYS ISIS HAS

EVEN CREATED A PRICE LIST

TO SELL CAPTURED WOMEN AND

CHILDREN.

THE ENVOY SAYS CAPTURED

BOYS AND GIRLS, AGED ONE

TO NINE, SELL FOR THE

EQUIVALENT OF $165.

ADOLESCENT GIRLS CAN BE

BOUGHT FOR $124.

AND WOMEN IN THEIR 20s

ARE BEING SOLD FOR $85.

THE U.N. ENVOY, WHO IS A

MUSLIM, SAYS ISIS

SOMETIMES SELLS THE GIRLS

BACK TO THEIR FAMILIES FOR

THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.

NOW THE ISLAMIC GROUP IS

SAYING THE RAPING OF

NON-MUSLIMS IS PART OF

ISLAMIC RELIGIOUS

PRACTICES.

> UP NEXT, EXPERT NINA

SHAY EXPLAINS WHAT IS

HAPPENING TO THE

CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE

EAST, AND WHAT IS BEING

DONE TO HELP THEM.

Chris: WELCOME BACK

TO "JERUSALEM DATELINE" IN

THE ISRAELI MARKET.

A LARGE NUMBER OF

CHRISTIANS ARE AMONG THE

MANY REFUGEES THAT FLED

ISIS AND OTHER ISLAMIC

GROUPS.

NINA SHAY SPOKE ABOUT THIS

ONGOING CRISIS RECENTLY IN

OUR WASHINGTON, D.C.

STUDIO.

Chris: NINA, THANKS

FOR BEING WITH US.

GREAT TO SEE YOU AGAIN.

GREAT TO SEE YOU,

CHRIS.

THANK YOU.

Chris: IT HAS BEEN

OVER A YEAR SINCE ISIS

TOOK OVER MOSUL, AND HOW

WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE

SITUATION, ESPECIALLY FOR

CHRISTIANS, IN THAT PART

OF THE WORLD RIGHT NOW?

WHAT WE'RE SEEING IS

CHRISTIANS ARE BEING TOLD

BY ISIS AND OTHER REBEL

GROUPS THERE THAT THEY

HAVE TO PAY A TAX OR ELSE

CONVERT OR ELSE FLEE OR

DIE.

SO THE TAX IS A RUSE.

THE TAX KEEPS INCREASING

UNTIL THEY CAN NO LONGER

PAY IT, AND THEY HAVE TO

EITHER GIVE OVER THEIR

CHILDREN AND THEIR WIFE OR

DIE, BE KILLED.

SO THE MEN ARE KILLED BY

ISIS.

THEY'RE BEHEADED, THEY'RE

CRUCIFIED, THEY'RE

OTHERWISE SLAUGHTERED, AND

THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN ARE

SOLD INTO SLAVERY.

AND IT'S SEX SLAVERY.

BUT THEY'VE ACTUALLY --

ISIS HAS PRINTED PRICE

LISTS FOR CHRISTIAN WOMEN,

STARTING WITH AGES ONE

THROUGH NINE.

AND THEY'RE THE MOST

EXPENSIVE.

Chris: HOW MANY

CHRISTIANS RIGHT NOW HAVE

FLED AND ARE LIVING IN

SAFE AREAS LIKE KURDISTAN,

AND HOW MANY ACTUALLY ARE

STILL UNDER THE SWAY OR

JURISDICTION, SO TO SPEAK,

OF ISIS?

THE CHRISTIANS, THE

150,000 OF THEM OR SO,

125,000 -- THE NUMBERS ARE

SOMEWHAT SOFT -- ALL FLED.

THEY WENT TO KURDISTAN,

SOME WENT TO JORDAN, SOME

WENT TO LEBANON.

THEY'VE CONTINUED TO LEAVE

THE REGION FAMILY BY

FAMILY.

THERE IS PROBABLY LESS

THAN 100,000 IN KURDISTAN

NOW FROM NE NINEVEH, THE

NORTHERN PROVINCE THAT WAS

ATTACKED A YEARS AGO.

Chris: YOU'RE TRYING

TO RELOCATE SOME OF THESE

CHRISTIANS?

YES.

THEY HAVE BEEN MENDICANT

FOR THE LAST YEAR.

WHEN THEY WENT INTO EXILE,

THEY WENT INTO SAFE HAVENS

THAT WILL NOT GIVE THEM

RESIDENCY STATUS OR GIVE

THEM WORK AUTHORIZATION.

SO THEY HAVE NO MONEY.

SO IT IS A VERY BLEAK

PICTURE.

AND WE DECIDED FOR SOME OF

THE MOST NEEDY CASES, THEY

NEED TO START THEIR LIVES

OVER.

THEY NEED TO BE RESETTLED

IN COUNTRIES THAT WOULD

GIVE THEM WORK

AUTHORIZATION, THAT WOULD

ALLOW THEM TO REBUILD

THEIR LIVES.

I'M WORKING WITH HOLLYWOOD

PRODUCER MARKS BYRPRODUCER MARK BURNETT TO

DO JUST THAT.

Chris: AND WHAT

COUNTRIES ARE LOOKING TO

REPATRIOT THEM IN?

FOR THE ARMENIANS,

ARMENIA, AND THEY'RE

CHRISTIAN.

OR ORTHODOX COMMUNITIES,

WE'RE LOOKING AT ORTHODOX

COUNTRIES, MAYBE GEORGIA,

MAYBE RUSSIA.

AND FOR THE CATHOLICS AND

PROTESTANTS, WE'RE LOOKING

AT THE WESTERN COUNTRIES.

AND SOME COUNTRIES, LIKE

POLAND AND BELGIUM, HAVE

TAKEN IN SMALL NUMBERS,

AND CANADA.

BUT, AGAIN, IT IS

DIFFICULT TO FIND

COUNTRIES BECAUSE THE

NUMBERS OF REFUGEES FROM

THESE TWO COUNTRIES -- NOT

JUST CHRISTIANS, BUT ALSO

THE MUSLIM REFUGEES, IS

OVERWHELMING.

THE DIFFERENCE WITH

CHRISTIANS IS THAT THEY --

UNDERNEATH THE CONFLICT --

THEY'RE NOT JUST RUNNING

FROM A CONFLICT.

THEY'RE RUNNING FROM

TARGETED PERSECUTION

AGAINST THEM.

Chris: GOING FORWARD,

HOW CAN THE CHURCH RESPOND

TO THIS SITUATION?

THE CHURCH OF THE WEST

AND THE FREE WORLD,

LATIN-AMERICA, NEEDS TO

PRAY ALL THE TIME.

NOT JUST ONCE A YEAR, BUT

PRAY EVERY SUNDAY IN

CONGREGATION FOR THESE

PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS.

THEY NEED TO LEARN ABOUT

IT.

AND IF THEY WANT TO HELP

WITH THE AIR LIFT RESCUE,

THEY CAN CONTACT ME AT THE

HUDSON INSTITUTE, HUDSON

HUDSON.ORG.

> THEY NEED TO KNOW THAT

CHRISTIANS ARE FACING

GENOCIDE.

THEY NEED TO HELP THESE

CHRISTIANS.

THEY NEED TO HELP THEM

WITH THEIR PRAYER AND WITH

AID FOR THEM TO LEAVE.

AND IF THEY CAN CONTACT

THEIR POLITICAL

REPRESENTATIVES AND THE

CANDIDATES RUNNING FOR

OFFICE TO SAY THE UNITED

STATES SHOULD TAKE ITS

SHARE OF CHRISTIANS AS

WELL.

Chris: IT IS A VERY

IMPORTANT MESSAGE, NINA,

THANK YOU FOR SHARING IT.

THANK YOU.

Chris: UP NEXT,

BIBLICAL PROPHECY

FULFILLED IN JERUSALEM'S

TRENDY OPEN AIR MARKET.

SUN SHI'A

Chris: WELCOME BACK

TO "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

JERUSALEM'S OPEN AIR

MARKET IS ONE OF THE MOST

COLORFUL AND POPULAR SPOTS

IN THE CITY.

AS CBN'S SCOTT ROSS SHOW

US, RIGHT HERE IN THIS

PLACE, BIBLICAL PROPHECY

IS BEING FULFILLED.

BBAHE YUDA, IT IS

JERUSALEM'S MOST FAMOUS

MARKET, AND LIKE SO MANY

OTHER PLACES IN THE CITY,

THERE IS NOTHING ORDINARY

ABOUT IT.

HERE WE ARE IN THE CITY OF

JERUSALEM.

ABSOLUTELY.

Reporter: AND WE'RE

ABOUT TO CROSS JAFFA ROAD.

ABOUT A MILE AND A HALF

DOWN THE ROAD IS THE OLD

CITY'S JAFFA GATE.

IN THE LATE 1800s A FEW

BRAVE JEWS ESTABLISHED

HOMES HERE, A LONG WAY

FROM THE PROTECTION OF THE

CITY WALLS.

TODAY YOU WOULD NEVER

EVEN IMAGINE SUCH A THING,

BUT WHEN THEY MOVED OUT OF

THE OLD CITY, THEY WERE

MOVING TO THESE SECURE

KIND OF NEIGHBORHOODS.

THAT'S WHY THE NAME OF THE

MARKET IS CALLED MAKA

MAKAYUHDA.

Reporter: IT IS

CONSIDERED BY SOME THE

OLDEST HARBOR IN THE

WORLD.

WHO WOULD HAVE BEEN ON

THIS ROAD IN THE RECENT

HISTORY?

SOMEONE LIKE GENERAL

ALLENBY, WHEN HE CAME AND

CONQUERED THIS FROM THE

OTTOMANS.

THEODORE HERZL CAME DOWN

THIS NATION.

DID YOU REALIZE THEY HAD

TO COME FROM JAFFA INTO

JERUSALEM.

WE DON'T KNOW EXACTLY THE

ROUTE THEY TOOK, BUT THIS

WAS THE MAIN ARTERY.

IT CERTAINLY HASN'T

DISAPPEARED OFF THE FACE

OF THE EARTH.

IT HAS HAD A

TRANSFORMATION.

NOW IT IS A PEDESTRIAN

HALL WITH A LIGHT RAIL

GOING THROUGH IT.

Reporter: MY WIFE AND

I JOINED HANA BENHEIM FOR

A WALK AS THEY PREPARED

FOR THE SABBATH.

HABA IS A BREAD THAT

COMES IN SEVERAL DIFFERENT

STYLES.

ONE IS SWEETER THAN THE

OTHER.

ONE IS WITH RAISINS AND

SWEET.

DO YOU WANT IT WITH

RAISINS OR WITHOUT?

WITH RAISINS.

AND TRADITIONALLY YOU

BOUGHT TWO OF THEM BECAUSE

ON A FRIDAY WHEN THE

CHILDREN WERE IN THE

DESERT, THEY ALWAYS HAD A

DOUBLE PORTION.

LET'S GO FIND SOME OLIVES.

THAT'S GOOD AND SPICY.

THE OLIVE IS PART OF

THE SYMBOL OF ISRAEL.

WE HAVE THE MENORAH WITH

TWO ABBREVIATED BRANCHES.

NOT BY MIGHT AND NOT BY

POWER.

AREN'T THEY DELICIOUS?

IT'S GOOD.

ISN'T IT BEAUTIFUL?

EVERYTHING.

AND THEY'RE ORGANIC.

Reporter: DOZENS OF

COUNTRIES AND CULTURES ARE

REPRESENTED HERE, BROUGHT

HERE BY JEWS RETURNING TO

THE LAND.

AN IRANIAN JEW STARTED A

SPICE SHOP IN JERUSALEM IN

1953, AND LATER MOVED HERE

TO THE SHOOK.

TODAY HIS GRANDSONS STILL

RUN THE SHOP.

ALL OF THE MIXES ARE

FROM MY GRANDFATHER.

AND YOU DO ALL OF THE

MIXTURES YOURSELF?

I MIX ALL OF THIS.

THIS IS SPECIAL.

I ADD THE SPICES.

SO THREE GENERATIONS

MIXING SPICES AND SELLING

SPICES HERE IN JERUSALEM

FROM IRAN.

Reporter: AN

ESTIMATED 200,000 PEOPLE

VISIT THE SHOOK EACH WEEK,

RICH AND POOR, YOUNG AND

OLD, RELIGIOUS AND

SECULAR, AS WELL AS JEWS

AND ARABS, SHOP IN THE

MARKET, BUT IT HAS HAD ITS

SHARE OF TRAGEDY, TOO.

WELL, THIS IS WHAT I

CAME TO SHOW YOU.

THAT SAYS "REMEMBER."

Reporter: JULY 30,

1997, SUICIDE BOMBERS

KILLED 16 PEOPLE HERE AND

WOUNDED ALMOST 200.

TERROR ATTACKS IN THE

MARKET VIRTUALLY DESTROYED

BUSINESS, SO THE

MUNICIPALITY REINVENTED

THE SHOOK TO MAKE IT ONE

OF THE TRENDIEST PLACES IN

THE CITY.

HUBIERAS HOW AR HOW ARE WE GOING TO

ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO COME

BACK HERE?

THE NEW FLOORS AND THE NEW

CEILINGS, AND EVEN THOUGH

IT DOESN'T LOOK VERY NEW

TO YOU, AND ALSO THE

OPENNESS TO SO MANY OTHER

SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS AND

BISTROS AND EVEN NIGHT

LIFE IS HERE.

SO YOU SEE ALL THINGS WORK

TOGETHER FOR GOOD.

THIS TRAGEDY BROUGHT NEW

LIFE.

WE HAVEN'T EVEN SEEN A

TINY FRACTION OF THE SHOOK

YET.

AND THIS IS CALLED THE

IRAQI MARKET.

SO WE'RE GOING DOWN THIS

WAY NOW.

Reporter: MORE THAN

250 VENDORS SELL

EVERYTHING FROM FRUITS AND

VEGETABLES TO GOURMET

CHEESES, NUTS, AND SPECIAL

BOUTIQUE ITEMS LIKE

FLAVORED TAHINA AND HAVA,

AND SOME OF THE BEST

RESTAURANTS IN THE CITY

ARE HERE.

THIS IS A VERY OPEN

KITCHEN.

THIS IS LAMB.

OOH, WE LIKE LAMB.

Reporter: WE ATE AT

THE AZURA RESTAURANT,

STARTED BY THE OWNER'S

FATHER IN 1952, WITH

TRADITIONAL TURKISH AND

IRAQI FOOD.

> IT IS SO AMAZING, THE

ABUNDANCE OF FOOD THAT IS

HERE.

I MEAN, THE TOMATOES ARE

LIKE THAT, AND THE VARIETY

OF FOOD.

ONE RELIGIOUS JEW SUMMED

UP THE SHOOK FOR US.

HE SAID, IF YOU WANT TO

TALK TO GOD, GO TO THE

WESTERN WALL.

BUT IF YOU WANT TO SEE GOD

AT WORK, GO TO THE SHOOK,

AND THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT WE

SAW.

SCOTT ROSS AT THE MARKET

IN JERUSALEM.

Chris: UP NEXT, A NEW

MUSEUM BEING BUILT IN THE

HEART OF WASHINGTON, D.C.

WILL CELEBRATE THE BIBLE

WITH SOME HELP FROM THE

LAND OF THE BIBLE.

SHIEWK

Chris: WELCOME BACK

TO "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

THE MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE

BEING BUILT IN WASHINGTON,

D.C. WILL FEATURE

ARTIFACTS DIRECTLY FROM

THE HOLY LAND.

IT IS PART OF AN AGREEMENT

BETWEEN THE MUSEUM AND THE

ISRAEL ANTIQUITIES

AUTHORITY.

PAUL STRAND HAS MORE FROM

CAPITOL HILL.

IT WON'T BE READY FOR A

COUPLE OF YEARS, BUT

CONSTRUCTION OF THE

WORLD'S LARGEST BIBLE

MUSEUM STARTED WITH

DESTRUCTION.

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME,

THE DESIGNERS PUT ON

DISPLAY WHAT THE

$400 MILLION MUSEUM OF THE

BIBLE WILL ACTUALLY LOOK

LIKE.

OUR DESIRE IS TELL THE

BIBLE STORY IN SUCH AN

ENGAGING WAY PEOPLE WILL

WANT TO SPEND HOURS IN THE

MUSEUM.

Reporter: STEVE GREEN

NOT ONLY OWNS HOBBY LOBBY,

BUT OWNS THE LARGEST

COLLECTION OF BIBLE ART

FECTS IARTIFACT IN THE WORLD.

WHEN YOU THINK OF THE

WORLD "MUSEUM" YOU THINK

OF OLD AND DUSTY.

BUT WE ARE GOING TO MAKE

IT VERY TECHNOLOGICALLY

ADVANCED.

Reporter: THE MUSEUM

IS SET TO OPEN IN 2017,

JUST A FEW HUNDRED YARDS

FROM THE NATIONAL MALL AND

THE POPULAR AEROSPACE

MUSEUM.

PAUL STRAND, REPORTING

FROM THE FUTURE SITE OF

THE MUSEUM OF THE BIBLE.

Chris: THAT'S IT FOR

THIS EDITION FROM THE

MAHANE YEHUDA MARKET.

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL, AND

WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME ON

"JERUSALEM DATELINE."
