The Watchman: Terror Wave Against Israel

On this week's edition of The Watchman, we examine the latest Palestinian terror wave against Israel and how ISIS and its supporters could use similar tactics here in the West. We also break down why Russia is getting involved militarily in ... ... Read Transcript


Erick: AND WELCOME TO

"THE WATCHMAN."

WELL, RUSSIA IS IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

FOLKS, THIS IS A MASSIVE

GAME-CHANGER, TO SEE THE

RUSSIANS, A MILITARY

POWERHOUSE, WITH A MASSIVE

NUCLEAR ARSENAL, OPENINGLY

ALIGNING THEMSELVES WITH

ISLAMIC TERRORISTS IN THE

FORM OF HEZBOLLAH AND IRAN

ON THE SYRIAN BATTLE

FIELDS.

SO WHY SHOULD YOU CARE

ABOUT THE RUSSIAN BEAR

DRIVING INTO THE MIDDLE

EAST?

MY CBN NEWS COLLEAGUE DALE

HURD TAKES A CLOSER LOOK.

Reporter: SINCE THE

BEGINNING OF RUSSIA'S

MILITARY BUILDUP IN SYRIA,

WORLD LEADERS ARE

WONDERING WHY VLADIMIR

PUTIN IS REALLY UP TO.

YES, PUTIN WANTS TO RESCUE

HIS ALLY, BASHAR

al-ASSAD, FROM LOSING A

BLOODY CIVIL WAR, AND

RUSSIA WOULD LIKE TO HANG

ON TO ITS NAVAL FACILITY

IN THE SYRIAN PORT OF

LATAKIA, BUT IS THAT ALL

HE IS AFTER?

WE DON'T TRULY

UNDERSTAND YET WHAT IT IS

THAT RUSSIA IS GOING TO DO

IN SYRIA.

Reporter: WHAT

EXPERTS DO KNOW IS THAT

VLADIMIR PUTIN COULD

CREATE A LOT OF TROUBLE IN

THE MIDDLE EAST.

BUT IN THE PROCESS, HE

COULD ALSO BOOST THE

AILING RUSSIAN ECONOMY, AN

ECONOMY THAT IS STILL IN

THE TANK FROM LOW OIL

PRICES AND FROM WESTERN

ECONOMIC SANCTIONS OVER

RUSSIA'S ANNEXATION OF

CRIMEA.

AND DESPITE PUTIN'S

EFFORTS TO DIE FER DIVERSIFY THE

ECONOMY, IT STILL LIVES OR

DIES WITH ENERGY PRICES.

THE RUBLE IS VERY

SENSITIVE TO THE MOVES OF

OIL PRICES.

IF OIL BECOMES CHEAPER,

THE RUBLE DOES THE SAME.

Reporter: PUTIN HAS

TAKEN A BIG GAMBLE WITH

THE PUBLIC AT HOME BY

GOING INTO SYRIA.

POLLS SHOW MOST RUSSIANS

OPPOSED SENDING TROOPS TO

SYRIA.

BUT PERHAPS PUTIN REALIZES

BY MOVING INTO SYRIA, HE

CAN PROTECT ASSAD, AND

BOOST THE RUSSIAN ECONOMY

AND HIS STANDING AT HOME.

RUSSIA'S MILITARY BUILDUP

AND BOMBING CAMPAIGN IN

SYRIA HAVE REVIVED THE

SO-CALLED SECURITY

PREMIUM, A SMALL RALLY IN

OIL PRICES, BASED ON THE

FEAR OF SHORTAGES IN OTHER

PARTS OF THE WORLD BECAUSE

OF WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

A BIG ESCALATION IN

FIGHTING COULD MEAN A BIG

ESCALATION IN OIL PRICES.

RUSSIA IS ALSO COMPETING

WITH THE SAUDIS FOR ENERGY

COSTUMERS.

AND THE WAR IN THE MIDDLE

EAST MAKE SAUDI SUPPLIES

LOOK LESS RELIABLE.

WITH ITS NEW AIR BASE IN

SYRIA, RUSSIA COULD

COORDINATE WITH IRAN TO

DISRUPT SHIPMENTS.

SO BY UNLEASHING HIS

MILITARY IN SYRIA,

VLADIMIR PUTIN COULD KILL

TWO BIRDS WITH ONE STONE:

BOTH SAVING AN ALLY AND

REVIVING RUSSIA'S

OIL-BASED ECONOMY.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Erick: THANKS, DALE.

FOLKS, I SAY THIS RUSSIAN

DRIVE INTO THE MIDDLE EAST

IS AN HISTORICAL

GAME-CHANGER FOR A NEW

MAJOR REASONS.

NUMBER ONE, ONCE AGAIN,

RUSSIA REMAINS A MILITARY

POWERHOUSE.

MAYBE NOT TO THE LEVELS,

OF COURSE, THAT IT WAS

DURING THE SOVIET ERA, BUT

THEY'RE RAPIDLY

MODERNIZING AND ADVANCING

AND REBUILDING THEIR

MILITARY AS WE SPEAK.

AND, NUMBER TWO, RUSSIA

HAS A MASSIVE NUCLEAR

ARSENAL.

AND WHAT THAT MEANS -- AND

THIS IS WHY IT IS SO

UNPRECEDENTED -- IS THAT

HEZBOLLAH, AN ISLAMIC

TERROR GROUP WITH PLENTY

OF AMERICAN BLOOD ON ITS

HAND, AND THE IRANIAN

REGIME, INCLUDING THE QUDS

FORCE, FOLKS, THEY NOW

EFFECTIVELY HAVE A NUCLEAR

UMBRELLA IN THE FORM OF

RUSSIA.

THE IRANIANS, HEZBOLLAH,

HAVE TO FEEL VERY

EMPOWERSED AND EMBOLDENED

RIGHT NOW.

THEY HAVE THE RUSSIAN BEAR

BEHIND THEM.

AND RUSSIA, AGAIN, IS IN

SYRIA.

THIS IS RIGHT AT ISRAEL'S

DOODOORSTEP.

YOU KNOW WHAT IS

INTERESTING FOLKS, A LOT

OF PEOPLE ARE SAYING THIS

IS PROPHETIC.

THEY ARE SAYING THAT

VLADIMIR PUTIN AS

DESCRIBED IN EZEKIEL 38

AND 39, HAS HAD A HOOK

PLACED IN HIS JAW THAT HAS

BROUGHT HIM DOWN TO THE

MIDDLE EAST ON THE

DOORSTEP.

CHAPTER 38, CHAPTER 39, IT

TALKS ABOUT A GREAT

CONFEDERATION, A MILITARY

CONFEDERATION COMING

AGAINST ISRAEL IN THE

LATTER DAYS.

IT IS CALLED THE WAR OF

GOG AND MAGOG.

A FUNNY NAME, BUT A LOT OF

SCHOLARS BELIEVE THAT

MAGOG IS ACTUALLY RUSSIA.

THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT A

COUNTRY TO THE UTTER MOST

NORTH OF ISRAEL.

LOOK ON A MAP, FOLKS,

THAT'S RUSSIA.

LEADING THIS INVASION

FORCE, WHICH INCLUDES

PERSIA, WHICH IS MODERN

DAY IRAN.

AND WE NOW HAVE RUSSIA AND

IRAN GETTING CLOSER AND

CLOSER.

AND RUSSIA IS NOW IN THE

MIDDLE EAST.

AND, FOLKS, THEY ARE NOT

GOING ANYWHERE.

THEY ARE THERE TO STAY.

AND AS DALE SAID IN HIS

STORY, LOOK, THEY HAVE

THEIR EYES ON ALL OF THAT

MIDDLE EASTERN OIL AGAIN.

WE LIVE IN BIBLE TIMES.

IN THE SHORT-TERM, ISRAEL

HAS MORE IMMEDIATE

PROBLEMS.

AS I STAND HERE, AT LEAST

10 ISRAELIS SO FAR HAVE

BEEN KILLED IN WHAT IS

BEING CALLED THE

PALESTINIAN STABBING

INTIFADAH.

AND, FOLKS, WHAT WE'RE

SEEING OVER THE PAST

SEVERAL WEEKS IN ISRAEL,

IN JERUSALEM, IN HEBRON,

AND REALLY ALL AROUND

ISRAEL, IS PALESTINIANS,

USUALLY YOUNG MEN,

SOMETIMES YOUNG WOMEN,

RANDOMLY ATTACKING --

MAYBE NOT SO RANDOMLY --

ATTACKING ISRAELIS, WOMEN,

CHILDREN, MEN, WITH

KNIVES, SOMETIMES WITH

GUNS AND ROCKS, BUT THE

MAIN WEAPON HAS BEEN

KNIVES.

AND THEY'VE MURDERED AT

LEAST 10 ISRAELIS IN WHAT

ARE REALLY LONE WOLF

JIHADI ATTACKS.

THE KIND THAT ISIS WANTS

TO CARRY OUT HERE IN THE

WEST AND IN EUROPE, AND

THAT'S WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN

ISRAEL RIGHT NOW WITH THIS

STABBING JIHAD THAT REALLY

SHOWS NO SIGN OF LETTING

UP.

LOOK, FOLKS, THIS FOLLOWS

THE ISIS BLUEPRINT.

WE TALKED ABOUT IT MANY

TIMES HERE ON THIS SHOW.

THESE STABBING ATTACKS,

OBVIOUSLY LOW TECH,

INEXPENSIVE, EASY TO CARRY

OUT.

ONE MAN OR ONE WOMAN COULD

DO IT.

YOU CAN STAB FIVE OR SIX

PEOPLE AND KILL THEM ALL

IN ONE SETTING.

IT IS NOT BRAIN SURGERY.

THESE ARE THE KINDS OF

ATTACKS THAT al-QAEDA

DID, AND NOW ISIS HAS BEEN

CALLING FOR.

THEY CALL THESE ATTACKERS

"CITY WOLVES."

YOU CAN GO INTO A SHOPPING

MAUMALL IN MIDDLE AMERICA

WITH A KNIFE FOR A GUN AND

YELL "ALLAHU AKBAR", AND

MURDER SEVERAL PEOPLE.

IT SHOULD BE NO SURPRISE

THAT ISIS IS PRAISING

THESE ATTACKS AGAINST

ISRAEL, RELEASING

VIDEOTAPES, CALLING FOR

MORE STABBINGS, KILL THE

JEWS.

THIS IS THE MESSAGE THAT

ISIS IS CONVEYING.

I CALL THE STRATEGY, THESE

SO-CALLED "LONE WOLF"

LOW-TECH, INEXPENSIVE

ATTACKS PART OF THE

JIHADIST CHIP-AWAY

STRATEGY.

HERE IS WHAT I WROTE IN MY

2011 BOOK, "THE TERRORIST

NEXT DOOR," 9/11 IS THE

KIND OF EFFECT al-QAEDA

CRAVES, THESE SMALLER

ATTACKS CAN CHIP AWAY AT A

SOCIETY'S CONFIDENCE AND

SECURITY."

THERE IS A GROWING FEAR

AMONG THE U.S.

INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY

THAT THIS IS PRECISELY THE

NEW PROTOTYPE FOR

AL-QAEDA, SMALL,

GRASSROOTS, AND

INEXPENSIVE, WITH SPLINTER

GROUPS EXECUTING ATTACKS.

AND WHILE al-QAEDA

RELEASES A SERIES OF

SMALLER-SCALE ASSAULTS

THAT KEEPS AMERICA

OFF-BALANCE, IT CONTINUES

TO PLOT MORE LONG-TERM

ATTACKS THAT WOULD DWARF

9/11.

"THE TERRORIST NEXT DOOR,"

WAS RELEASED IN MAY 2011,

EVEN BEFORE ISIS EVEN

EXISTED, BUT WHAT ISIS HAS

DONE IS TAKEN THIS

CHIP-AWAY STRATEGY AND

THEY'VE GONE FORWARD WITH

IT IN A MAJOR WAY.

WHAT ISIS WANTS TO DO IS

ESSENTIALLY TURN AMERICAN

AND EUROPEAN CITIES INTO

GUERRILLA WAR ZONES.

LIKE ISRAEL IS FACING

RIGHT NOW, WHERE YOU HAVE

CONSTANTLY THIS CHIP-AWAY,

LONE-WOLF, SOLO ATTACKS ON

A REGULAR BASIS IN

AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN

CITIES.

AND IT CAUSES ECONOMIC AND

PSYCHOLOGICAL DAMAGE.

THE ISRAELIS ARE MUCH

BETTER PREPARED FOR IT IN

DEALING WITH IT THAN WE

ARE.

WE ARE NOT PREPARED HERE

IN THE UNITED STATES.

IN MIDDLE AMERICA, IN SOME

OF THE SLEEPY CITIES AND

TOWNS IN OUR GREAT

COUNTRY, WE'RE REALLY NOT

EQUIPPED OR PREPARED TO

HANDLE THAT KIND OF

REGULAR ONSLAUGHT OF

ISLAMIC TERROR ATTACKS.

LET'S FACE IT, FOLKS.

AGAIN, THIS IS WHAT ISIS

IS CALLING FOR.

NOW, A FEW THINGS TO

REMEMBER HERE: CAN THEY

BRING THIS STRATEGY TO

FRUITION HERE ON AMERICAN

SOIL?

BEFORE YOU SAY, ERICK

STAKELBECK, YOU SCARE

MONGER, KEEP THESE FACTS

IN MIND: WE'VE SEEN FORT

HOOD, THE BOSTON BOMBINGS,

AND AN ATTACK IN

CHATTANOOGA, AND AN

ATTEMPTED ATTACK IN MAY,

AND ON OCTOBER, WE SEEN AT

LEAST 16 U.S. CITIZENS

ARRESTED FOR PLOTTING

ATTACKS ON AMERICAN SOIL

OR TRYING TO JOIN ISIS.

THE F.B.I. DIRECTOR MADE A

STUNNING STATEMENT A FEW

MONTHS AGO, SAYING THAT IN

ALL 50 STATES WE HAVE

INVESTIGATIONS ONGOING

INTO ISIS-RELATED ACTIVITY

RIGHT HERE ON AMERICAN

SOIL.

SO WHAT THE F.B.I.

DIRECTOR IS SAYING THAT IN

EVERY STATE IN THE UNION,

WE HAVE A NETWORK OF ISIS

SUPPORTERS AND

SYMPATHIZERS.

THE BARBARIANS ARE NOT

JUST AT THE GATES.

THEY ARE IN SIGHT THE

GATES.

IT IS NOT JUST STAKELBECK

SAYING THIS.

THE HOUSE HOMELAND

SECURITY COMMITTEE, RIGHT

HERE ON CAPITOL HILL IN

WASHINGTON, D.C., RECENTLY

RELEASED A REPORT SAYING

THAT AT LEAST 250 U.S.

CITIZENS HAVE ATTEMPTED TO

JOIN, OR HAVE JOINED,

ISIS.

THEY HAVE LEFT THEIR

COMFORTABLE HOMES HERE IN

THE MOST PROSPEROUS

COUNTRY IN THE HISTORY OF

THE WORLD.

THEY'VE TRAVELLED OVERSEAS

TO IRAQ AND SYRIA TO JOIN

ISIS.

AND GUESS WHAT, THE HOUSE

HOMELAND SECURITY

COMMITTEE SAID THAT DOZENS

OF THESE PEOPLE HAVE

ALREADY RETURNED.

AND THERE IS NO WAY REALLY

TO KEEP TRACK OF ALL OF

THEM.

AND THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION REALLY HAS

NOT COME UP WITH A

STRATEGY, AS OF YET, TO

STEM THE FLOW.

FOLKS, WE ARE IN VERY,

VERY DANGEROUS TIMES.

IT'S GOING TO BE OKAY.

DON'T GET DISCOURAGED.

BE ENCOURAGED BECAUSE GOD

SITS ON THE THRONE.

SO IT WILL BE OKAY.

BUT YOU NEED TO KNOW.

WOULD YOU RATHER KNOW OR

NOT KNOW?

I THINK YOU NEED TO KNOW.

AND AS FOLLOWERS OF JESUS,

FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS,

WE NEED TO BE SALT AND

LIGHT.

AND THE BIBLE SAYS MY

PEOPLE PERISH FOR LACK OF

KNOWLEDGE.

SO NOW YOU KNOW, KEEP AN

EYE ON WHAT IS GOING ON

WITH ISIS AND THIS REFUGEE

CRISIS, AND KEEP AN EYE ON

RUSSIA AND WHAT THEY'RE

DOING AT ISRAEL'S

DOORSTEP.

AFTER THE BREAK, WE'RE

GOING TO TALK MORE ABOUT

ISRAEL AND MORE ABOUT THIS

ONGOING STABBING INTIFADAH

AGAINST ISRAELIS.

WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT

THE TEMPLE MOUNT, WHICH

HAS REALLY KIND OF BEEN

THE EPICENTER FOR THIS

LATEST PALESTINIAN

JIHADIST ONSLAUGHT AGAINST

ISRAEL.

WE'RE GOING TO TAKE YOU ON

THE GROUND TO JERUSALEM,

TO THE TEMPLE MOUNT, AFTER

THE BREAK.

STICK AROUND.

Erick: AND WELCOME

BACK.

JERUSALEM, GOD'S CITY,

MENTIONED HUNDREDS OF

TIMES IN THE BIBLE, IN

BOTH THE OLD AND NEW

TESTAMENTS.

NEVER MENTIONED IN THE

QURAN, NOT EVEN ONCE.

WELL, RIGHT NOW JERUSALEM

IS THE CENTER OF MUSLIM

ANGER AGAINST ISRAEL.

THE PALESTINIANS, AND SOME

SURROUNDING ARAB NATIONS,

ARE SAYING THAT ISRAEL IS

VIOLATING THE STATUS QUO

ON THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

NOW THE TEMPLE MOUNT IS

THE HOLIEST SITE IN

JUDAISM, WHERE HAROD AND

SOLOMON'S TEMPLES ONCE

STOOD.

BUT IT IS THE CURRENT HOME

OF THE AL-AQSA MOSQUE AND

THE DOME OF THE ROYA ROCK, HOLY

SHRINES OF ISLAM.

WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON ON

THE TEMPLE MOUNT?

MY COLLEAGUE, CHRIS

MITCHELL, HAS THAT STORY.

Chris: IT IS ONE OF

THE MOST HOLY AND

CONTESTED PIECES OF REAL

ESTATE ON EARTH: THE

TEMPLE MOUNT.

FOR DECADES ISLAMIC

LEADERS HAVE INCITED

MUSLIMS TO VIOLENCE, BY

TELLING THEM THE AL-AQSA

MOSQUE IS IN DANGER.

FIRST THEY SAID THE

ISRAELIS WERE UNDER MINING

ITS FOUNDATIONS TO MAKE IT

COLLAPSE.

AND NOW THEY ALSO SAY IT

IS A THREAT EVEN FOR JEWS

TO PRAY FOR THE SACRED

PLATEAU.

EXTREME MOVEMENTS

BELIEVE THAT ISRAEL IS

PLANNING TO BUILD THE

THIRD TEMPLE, AND TO

DESTROY THEIR HOLY SHRINE.

Chris: KNOWN IN

ARABIC AS THE NOBLE

SANCTUARY, IT IS THE PLACE

WHERE TWO CONSECUTIVE

JEWISH TEMPLES ONCE STOOD.

THE SECOND WAS DESTROYED

IN 70 A.D.BY THE ROMANS.

NOW MUSLIM MOSQUES OCCUPY

THE SITE.

THE ONE TO THE RIGHT IS

THE MOST IDENTIFIABLE

MUSLIM SHRINE ON THE

TEMPLE MOUNT.

BUT IT IS THE GREY-DOMED

AL-AQSA MOSQUE TO MY LEFT

THE MUSLIMS CONSIDER IS

THE THIRD HOLIEST SITE.

AL-AQSA WAS FIRST BUILT IN

705 A.D..

IN MUSLIM THEOLOGY, THE

SITE PRECEDES THE JEWS AND

GOES BACK TO CREATION.

YOU KNOW, ADAM, WHEN HE

DESCENDED FROM THE HEAVEN,

HE CAME HERE AND HE PRAYED

HERE.

NO DIFFERENT HERE

BETWEEN SOLOMON AND KING

DAVID -- IT IS ALL THE

SAME.

Chris: TODAY THE

ENTIRE PLATEAU IS REFERRED

TO AL-AQSA.

THEY WROTE THE AL-AQSA IS

IN DANGER, THE HISTORY OF

A LIE.

HE SAYS WHEN MUSLIM

LEADERS WANT TO UNITE THE

MASSES, THEY CLAIM IT IS

IN DANGER.

Through Translator:

THE MATCH THAT IGNITES THE

PEOPLE AND BRINGS THEM TO

THE STREETS AND CAUSES

VIOLENCE IS THIS LIABLE,

AL-AQSA IS IN DANGER, AND

THIS IS DANGER.

Chris: THIS

ARCHEOLOGIST SAYS THERE

HAVE BEEN EXCAVATIONS NEAR

THE TEMPLE MOUNT, BUT

NEVER UNDER IT.

ONE OF THE CORNERSTONES

WAS NEVER TOUCHED.

Chris: HE SAYS IT WAS

MUSLIMS, NOT JEWS, WHO

BEGAN DIGGING IN AN

ATTEMPT TO REWRITE

HISTORY.

SINCE THE '90s, THERE

WERE MANY DESTRUCTIVE

DIGGINGS GOING ON IN THE

TETEMPLE MOUNT, WHICH WERE

NOT FOR ARCHEOLOGICAL

PURPOSES, BUT FOR THE

CONTRARY, FOR DESTROYING

ARCHEOLOGICAL DATA.

Chris: AROUND 2000,

THE ISLAMIC RELIGIOUS

AUTHORITY DUG OF THOUSANDS

OF YEARS OF HISTORY FROM

UNDER THE TEMPLE MOUNT TO

MAKE ROOM FOR A GIANT

MOSQUE.

BARKI HEADED AN OPERATION

TO SAVE ARTIFACTS FROM THE

DISCARDED MATERIAL.

YEARS LATER, ARCHEOLOGISTS

AND VOLUNTEERS STILL SIFT

THROUGH THE DEBRIS.

AMIN al-HUHUSEINI STARTED

IT IN THE 1930s, WHICH

LED TO MUSLIM RIOTING AND

MURDER OF THE JEWS, JUST

THE FIRST OF MANY

INCIDENTS.

DR. YI YITZHAK SAYS THIS.

THEY BELIEVE THAT THE

AL-AQSA IS IN DANGER.

Chris: THEY BLAMED IT

ON A VISITIN VISITING AUSTRALIAN

CHRISTIAN, AND THAT LIE

CONTINUES TODAY.

AND MORE TROUBLE IN 1996,

THE WORST VIOLENCE BROKE

OUT WHEN ISRAEL OPENED THE

TUNNELS HALF A MILE FROM

AL-AQSA.

AND IN 2004, RAIN, SNOW,

AND A MINOR EARTH TOPPLED

THE ENTRANCE TO THE TEMPLE

MOUNT, AND THAT PROVOKED

AN UPROAR WHEN ISRAEL

TRIED TO REBUILD IT.

WE ASKED MUSLIMS IN ISRAEL

WHAT THEY THINK.

THEY DESTROYED IT -- IT

IS IN DANGER.

THEY ARE DIGGING AND

DIGGING, AND THEY DON'T

FIND ANYTHING.

GOD WILL SAFE IT.

Chris: EXPERTS SAY IT

IS IMPORTANT THE WEST

TAKES NOTICE NOW BECAUSE

MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS

BELIEVE THE LIE IS TRUE.

THEY SAY IF IT BROUGHT

VIOLENCE IN THE PAST, IT

WILL DO SO IN THE FUTURE.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM'S OLD CITY.

Erick: WELL, ISIS,

HEZBOLLAH, al-QAEDA,

WHERE IS THIS ALL HEADING?

I DISCUSSED THIS RECENTLY

IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

THIS IS GOOD STUFF.

STICK AROUND.

Erick: AND WELCOME

BACK.

YOU KNOW, FOLKS, I SPEAK

FOR A LOT OF PRO-ISRAEL

AND COUNTER-JIHAD

ORGANIZATIONS HERE IN THE

U.S.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE

ORGANIZATIONS GOING BACK

MANY YEARS NOW, IS "ACT

FOR AMERICA."

THIS IS A GREAT GRASSROOTS

ORGANIZATION, REALLY AT

THE FOREFRONT OF THE

BATTLE AGAINST ISLAMIC

JIHAD AND STEALTH JIHAD

AND ISLAMISM RIGHT HERE IN

THE UNITED STATES.

I WAS HONORED TO SPEAK FOR

BRIDGET GABRIELLE'S GROUP,

"ACT FOR AMERICA," HERE IN

WASHINGTON, D.C. AT THEIR

ANNUAL WASHINGTON SUMMIT.

al-QAEDA PUT OUT A

20-YEAR PLAN.

WHERE ARE WE ON THIS PLAN?

BETWEEN 2012 AND 2016, THE

GOAL WAS TO ESTABLISH AN

ISLAMIC CALIPHATE.

THAT'S HAPPENED.

IN 2014 ISIS DECLARED A

CALIPHATE.

IT IS A PITTANCE, COMPARED

TO THE CALIPHATES OF OLD,

BUT, STILL, ISIS CONTROLS

SOME 36,000 SQUARE MILES

OF TERRITORY IN THE HEART

OF THE MIDDLE EAST.

THAT IS AN AREA THE SIZE

OF GREAT BRITAIN.

THEY'VE DONE IN IT A

PRETTY SHORT AMOUNT OF

TIME, AND, FOLKS, THAT'S

ASTOUNDING.

THAT'S ASTOUNDING.

NOW, THE PERIOD FROM 2016

TO 2020, ACCORDING TO

THIS al-QAEDA 20-YEAR

PLAN -- FROM 2016 TO 2020,

THEY'VE DUBBED THIS PERIOD

TOTAL CONFRONTATION.

TOTAL CONFRONTATION.

CALL ME CRAZY, BUT IT

SEEMS A LOT LIKE WE MAY BE

HEADING TOWARDS TOTAL

CONFRONTATION BETWEEN ISIS

AND THE GROWTH OF THE

ISLAMIC STATE, BETWEEN

IRAN ON THE CUSP OF A

NUCLEAR WEAPON, WITH OUR

OWN LEADER'S ASSENT.

FOLKS, THIS IS A WINSTON

CHURCHILL MOMENT.

CHURCHILL IN THE LATE

1930s, EARLY '40s, SAW

THE GATHERING STORM OF

NAZI GERMANY.

AND HE CALLED IT FOR WHAT

IT WAS.

HE WAS RIDICULED.

HE WAS CASTIGATED AND

ISOLATED BY FELLOW WESTERN

LEADERS.

TODAY WE HAVE ONE LEADER,

IN MY VIEW, WHO SEES THE

RISING STORM OF ISLAMIC

JIHAD.

AND HIS NAME IS BENJAMIN

NETANYAHU.

[APPLAUSE]

Erick: COMING UP,

SOME FINAL THOUGHTS, AFTER

THE BREAK.

STHOIMEN Erick: AND WELCOME

BACK.

I KNOW MY OPENING

MONOLOGUE MAY NOT HAVE

BEEN THE MOST PLEASANT

NEWS, BUT, LOOK, THERE ARE

STEPS WE CAN TAKE TO

COUNTER VLADIMIR PUTIN AND

TO COUNTER ISIS INFLUENCE.

NOW, I FEAR THAT BEFORE

JANUARY 2017, WHEN

PRESIDENT OBAMA LEAVES

OFFICE, WE'RE NOT GOING TO

SEE THOSE STEPS TAKEN.

WE SHOULD STAND UP TO

VLADIMIR PUTIN IN SYRIA.

RIGHT NOW WE ARE GIVING

HIM FREE REIGN THERE.

NUMBER TWO, WITH ISIS, THE

CALIPHATE, THIS ISLAMIC

STATE THEY HAVE

ESTABLISHED, OVER 36,000

SCARE MILES OF TERRITORY

IN IRAQ AND SYRIA, IN THE

HEART OF THE MIDDLE

EAST -- THAT CALIPHATE

SHOULD BE CRUSHED.

WE CAN DO IT.

WE HAVE THE MOST POWERFUL

MILITARY IN THE HISTORY OF

THE WORLD.

IT WOULD NOT TAKE LONG.

AND, FOLKS, WHEN YOU DO

THAT, IF YOU CRUSH THAT

CALIPHATE, YOU DEMORALIZE

THE GLOBAL JIHADIST

MOVEMENT AND PUT A DENT IN

THE IDEOLOGY.

IT WOULD BE A GOOD THING.

AND REMEMBER, BEFORE

9/11, al-QAEDA HAD A

SAFE HAVEN TO PLOT AND

PLAN IN AFGHANISTAN.

WELL, THEN THEY CARRIED

OUT 9/11.

TODAY IN IRAQ, IN SYRIA,

ISIS HAS A SAFE HAVEN TO

PLOT AND TO PLAN AGAINST

THE UNITED STATES.

AND, FOLKS, THEY HAVE THE

ADDED BENEFIT OF THOUSANDS

OF WESTERN RECRUITS, U.S.

CITIZENS, EUROPEAN

CITIZENS, WHO CAN ENTER

THIS COUNTRY AND MOVE

AROUND FREELY.

THAT IS ULTIMATELY WHY WE

HAVE A STAKE IN

CRUSHING -- NOT JUST

DEFEATING, BUT UTTERLY

CRUSHING ISIS.

WHEN A GREAT EVIL RISES,

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, IT

MUST BE CRUSHED.

THINK OF WHAT WE DID TO

THE GERMAN WAR MACHINE,

THE JAPANESE WAR MACHINE

DURING WORLD WAR II.

IF HISTORY SHOWS US

ANYTHING, IT IS THAT WHEN

SOMEONE ELSE YOU THEY WANT

TO KILL YOU, YOU SHOULD

BELIEVE THEM.

SO, TAKE HEART.

STAY STRONG.

STAY IN PRAYER.

UNTIL NEXT TIME, THANKS

FOR JOINING US.

GOD BLESS YOU.

AND REMEMBER, NEVER HOLD

YOUR PEACE.
