The Watchman: Terror in San Bernardino - December 8, 2015

On this week's edition of The Watchman, we examine the Islamic terrorist attack in San Bernardino and what's next in ISIS's war against America. Read Transcript


Erick: AND WELCOME TO

"THE WATCHMAN."

WELL, THE HORRIFIC ISIS

TERROR ATTACK ON PARIS IS

JUST A FEW WEEKS OLD, AND

NOW WE'RE PICKING UP THE

PIECES FROM AN

ISIS-INSPIRED ATTACK RIGHT

HERE ON AMERICAN SOIL.

TWO ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, A

HUSBAND AND WIFE TEAM,

MURDERED 14 PEOPLE IN SAN

BERNARDINO LAST WEEK.

AND, FOLKS, WE HAVE

ENTERED A DANGEROUS NEW

PHASE HERE ON AMERICAN

SOIL.

THE SAN BERNARDINO

JIHADIST MASSACRE MARKED

THE DEADLIEST ISLAMIC

TERROR ATTACK ON AMERICAN

SOIL SINCE 9/11, EVEN

DEADLIER THAN THE FORT

HOOD ATTACK AND THE BOSTON

BOMBING.

SYED FAROOK WAS AN

AMERICAN-BORN JIHADIST WHO

TRAVELLED TO SAUDI ARABIA

AND MET HIS WIFE, TASHFEEN

MALIK, A PAKISTANI NATIVE.

AND HE THEN BROUGHT HER

BACK TO CALIFORNIA.

SOME HAVE SUGGESTED THAT

THE WIFE ACTUALLY

RADICALIZED THE HUSBAND,

WHICH WOULD BE AN

INTERESTING TWIST.

WE MAY NEVER KNOW THE

ANSWER TO THAT.

BUT WHAT WE DO KNOW IS

THAT TASHFEEN MALIK

PLEDGED ALLEGIANCE TO ISIS

ON HER Facebook PAGE

JUST BEFORE JOINING HER

HUSBAND IN MASSACRING 14

PEOPLE.

WE ALSO KNOW THAT SYED

FAROOK WAS IN TOUCH WITH

PEOPLE WHO THE U.S.

GOVERNMENT HAS

INVESTIGATED FOR TERROR

TIES.

AND HE REPORTEDLY REACHED

OUT TO THE

AL-QAEDA-AFFILIATED

AL-NUSRA FRONT IN SYRIA

AND al-SHABAAB.

SYED FAROOK AND HIS WIFE,

TASHFEEN MALIK, WERE READY

AND WILLING TO GET

INVOLVED IN THE JIHAD.

AND LO AND BEHOLD, WHEN

AUTHORITIES RAIDED THEIR

HOME, THEY FOUND AN

ARSENAL OF AMMUNITION AND

PIPE BOMBS.

SO WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY HAD

PLANNED BEYOND THEIR

ATTACK ON THE CENTER WHERE

FAROOK WORKED.

NEVERTHELESS, DESPITE

OVERWHELMING EVIDENCE

PRETTY EARLY ON THAT THIS

WAS AN ISLAMIC TERRORIST

ATTACK, THE MAINSTREAM

MEDIA AND THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION SPENT DAYS

WRINGING THEIR HANDS OVER

THE MOTIVATIONS BEHIND THE

ATTACKS, AND WHETHER IT

WAS JUST A CASE OF

WORKPLACE VIOLENCE.

SEE NO ISLAM; SPEAK NO

ISLAM.

JUST AS IN THE IMMEDIATE

AFTERMATH OF FORT HOOD AND

THE BOSTON BOMBING.

BUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE,

AH-HAH, AREN'T STUPID.

SO PRESIDENT OBAMA

DELIVERED AN OVAL OFFICE

ADDRESS ACKNOWLEDGING

THAT, YES, SAN BERNARDINO

WAS A TERRORIST ATTACK.

BUT IN TERMS OF STRATEGY

TO FIGHT ISIS AND THE

GROWING JIHADIST THREAT ON

AMERICAN SOIL, NOTHING

NEW.

President Obama: IF

WE'RE TO SUCCEED IN

DEFEATING TERRORISM, WE

MUST I ENLIST MUSLIM

COMMUNITIES, RATHER THAN

PUSH THEM AWAY THROUGH

SUSPICION AND HATE.

IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY

TO REJECT RELIGIOUS TESTS

ON WHO WE ADMIT INTO THIS

COUNTRY.

Erick: FOLKS, NEWS

FLASH: NOTHING IS GOING TO

CHANGE BEFORE PRESIDENT

OBAMA LEAVES OFFICE IN

JANUARY 2017.

HE WILL NOT SAY RADICAL

ISLAM.

HE WILL NOT DESTROY ISIS.

AND HE WILL NOT CONTAIN

ISIS.

HE WILL CONTINUE TO

EMBRACE THE IRANIAN REGIME

AND ISOLATE ISRAEL.

ISIS IS RAMPING UP ITS

ACTIVITIES AROUND THE

WORLD.

IN THE PAST MONTH AND A

HALF, IT HAS DOWNED A

RUSSIAN AIRLINER OVER

EGYPT, CARRIED OUT MAJOR

ATTACKS IN BEIRUT AND, OF

COURSE, PARIS, AND NOW WE

HAVE TWO ISIS SYMPATHIZERS

WREAKING HAVOC IN SAN

BERNARDINO.

THE GOAL IS TO TURN

AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN

CITIES INTO GUERRILLA WAR

ZONES, WHERE YOU SEE A

PARIS OR CALIFORNIA-STYLE

ATTACK ON A REGULAR BASIS.

ARE WE READY FOR THAT AS A

COUNTRY?

I DON'T THINK WE ARE.

SO NOW, MORE THAN EVER, WE

NEED TO LEAN ON THE LORD

GOD ALMIGHTY.

HE SAYS , I WILL NEVER

LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU.

IF YOU'RE NOT WALKING WITH

THE LORD, FOLKS, THIS IS A

GOOD TIME TO START.

THERE IS NO POLITICAL

MESSIAH COMING AROUND THE

CORNER IN 2016, BUT THERE

IS A LIVING MESSIAH, THE

LORD JESUS, WHO WE CAN PUT

OUR HOPE AND TRUST IN.

UNLIKE THE POLITICIANS

HERE IN WASHINGTON, HE

WILL NEVER LET YOU DOWN.

A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE ASKED

MY ABOUT TASHFEEN MALIK,

WHY A WOMAN, EVEN AMERICAN

AND EUROPEAN WOMEN, WOULD

WANT TO JOIN ISIS.

I REPORTED ON THIS

PHENOMENON LAST YEAR AND

CBN NEWS.

GET READY FOR THE GIRLS OF

JIHAD.

FOR MONTHS BEFORE SHANNON

CONNELLY'S ARRESTS, F.B.I.

AGENTS MET WITH HER

REPEATEDLY.

THEY WARNED HER THAT HER

PLAN TO TRAVEL WITH SYRIA

AND HELP ISIS WAS

ILLEGALLY.

CONNELLY, HOWEVER, THAT

MADE UP HER MIND.

SHE WANTED TO LEAVE HER

SUBURBAN DENVER HOME TO

MARRY AN ISIS MEMBER SHE

MET ONLINE.

AGENTS STOPPED HER AT

DENVER'S AIRPORT BEFORE

SHE COULD CARRY OUT HER

PLAN.

BUT THERE ARE MANY MORE

LIKE HER.

LAST MONTH THREE TEENAGED

GIRLS WERE DETAINED BY

TRYING TO MAKE THEIR WAY

TO SYRIA.

BUT HUNDREDS OF OTHER

YOUNG WOMEN FROM WESTERN

COUNTRIES HAVE MADE IT TO

THE ISLAMIC STATE,

MARRYING ISIS FIGHTERS,

AND EVEN FIGHTING

ALONGSIDE THEM.

I HAVE A HUGE CONCERN

REGARDING THE WOMEN GOING

BACK BECAUSE THAT'S,

AGAIN, A PART OF BUILDING

A NEW SOCIETY.

THAT'S THE MARKETING THAT

IS GOING ON.

AND A LOT OF WOMEN HERE

ARE FINDING THAT AN

ATTRACTIVE OPTION.

Erick: BOB FLETCHER

IS THE FORMER IS SHERIFF SHERIFF OF A

TOWN WHERE MANY HAVE

JOINED ISIS.

WHILE THEY'RE

RECRUITING MEN, THEY

PROMISE THEM WIVES WHEN

THEY GET THERE.

THEY NEED WOMEN IN THEIR

SOCIETY TO KEEP THEIR

FIGHTERS CONTENT.

IT'S A SCARY THING, BUT

THE WOMEN ARE REALLY BEING

USED IN A VARIETY OF WAYS.

ONCE THEY GET THERE.

Erick: IN SOME CASES,

THESE WOMEN ACT AS MUCH

MORE THAN MERE JIHADI

BRIDES.

A GROUP OF BRITISH WOMEN

REPORTEDLY LEADS AN ALL

FEMALE SHI'A POLICE UNIT.

THEY ENFORCE ISLAMIC DRESS

CODES AND EVEN REPORTEDLY

RUN A BROTHEL, WHERE THEY

PROVIDE SEX SLAVES TO ISIS

FIGHTERS.

SO FAR MOST OF THE ISIS

WOMEN COME FROM EUROPE.

THE NUMBERS INCLUDE AT

LEAST 50 BRITISH WOMEN, 40

FROM GERMANY, AND SOME 60

FRENCH GIRLS AND YOUNG

WOMEN ALL LEAVING THEIR

HOMES TO JOIN THE ISLAMIC

STATE.

THE SO-CALLED POSTER GIRLS

FOR THIS MOVEMENT ARE A

PAIR OF AUSTRIAN TEENAGERS

WHO ARE BELIEVED TO BE

LIVING IN SYRIA AND

MARRIED TO ISIS FIGHTERS.

THE GIRLS ARE REPORTEDLY

PREGNANT AND WANT TO COME

HOME.

al-QAEDA EXTREMISTS,

ISIS, al-SHABAAB, FOR

THE GIRLS, THEY'RE USING

THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE.

Erick: THERE IS A

PRECEDENT FOR FEMALE

TERRORISTS.

DOZEN OF MUSLIM WOMEN FROM

CHECHNYA AND DAGASTAN HAVE

CARRIED OUT SUICIDE

BOMBINGS, BUT ISIS IS

TAKING THINGS TO ANOTHER

LEVEL BY ACTIVELY

RECRUITING WOMEN ONLINE.

ISIS PROMISES THEM

HUSBANDS AND A WONDERFUL

NEW LIFE IN THE CALIPHATE,

IN A PLACE WHERE WOMEN

HAVE NO RIGHTS OR

FREEDOMS.

WE'RE HEARING SO MUCH

ABOUT SYRIAN REFUGEES.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON RECENTLY

SPENT TIME IN TWO SYRIAN

REFUGEE CAMPS IN LEBANON

AND IN FRANCE.

SHE JOINS US AFTER THE

BREAK TO SHARE WHAT SHE

FOUND.

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS

THIS.

STICK AROUND.

Erick: AND WELCOME

BACK.

WHILE WE'RE HEARING SO

MUCH ABOUT SYRIAN

REFUGEES, THEIR IMPACT ON

EUROPE AND AMERICA, AND

THEIR IMPACT ON THE MIDDLE

EAST, OUR CBN NEWS

CORRESPONDENT ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON RECENTLY SPENT

TIME IN TWO SYRIAN REFUGEE

CAMPS, ONE IN LEBANON, AND

ONE IN FRANCE.

SHE JOINS US NOW.

ABBEY, GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HERE.

GREAT TO BE HERE.

Erick: YOU JUST HAD A

VERY INTERESTING TRIP TO

LEBANON AND TO FRANCE.

LET'S START WITH LEBANON

AND THE SYRIAN REFUGEES

FLEEING THERE FROM OVER

THE BORDER.

WHAT DID YOU SEE ON THE

GROUND IN THIS REFUGEE

CAMP IN LEBANON AND WHAT

STOOD OUT?

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT

STOOD OUT TO ME, ONE,

THESE PEOPLE ARE FLEEING

HORRIFIC SITUATIONS AT

HOME.

THEY HAVE NOTHING TO GO

BACK TO.

THESE PEOPLE ARE DOCTORS,

LAWYERS, MECHANICAL

ENGINEERS, WELL-RESPECTED

CITIZENS WHO HAVE HAD TO

LEAVE THEIR ENTIRE

LIFESTYLES.

THEY'VE HAD TO LEAVE THEIR

HOUSES, THEIR CARS, THEIR

FAMILIES, AND A LOT OF

THEM LIVE IN COMMUNISTS COMMUNITIES

THAT WERE HUGE FAMILIES --

Erick: MIDDLE CLASS

COMMUNITIES IN SYRIA.

AND THESE ARE PROFESSIONAL

PEOPLE, LIKE YOU SAID, AND

NOW THEY'RE LIVING IN A

REFUGEE CAMP.

AND THEY COME TO

LEBANON AND JORDAN AND

OTHER PLACES, AND THEY'RE

NOT ALLOWED TO GET JOBS

ONCE THEY'RE REFUGEES.

AND THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO

WERE PROFESSIONALS AND

THEY CAN'T WORK AND

THEY'RE COMPLETELY RELYING

ON THE GOVERNMENT IN THESE

COUNTRIES TO HELP THEM.

Erick: OF COURSE, IT

IS A DEPRESSING SITUATION.

NUMBER ONE, WHAT WAS THE

ATTITUDE OVERALL IN THE

CAMPS?

AND WHAT WAS THE VIEW OF

ISIS?

I IMAGINE A LOT OF THESE

PEOPLE WERE FLEEING ISIS.

WAS THERE FEAR OR ANGER

ABOUT ISIS?

THEY'RE MAKING THE BEST

OF WHAT THEY CAN.

THEY ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR

ANY COMPASSION THAT ANY

GROUPS OR GOVERNMENTS THAT

ARE DOING THINGS TO HELP

THEM.

THEIR SENTIMENT TOWARDS

ISIS -- THE ONES WHO STILL

HAVE FAMILY IN SYRIA ARE

VERY AFRAID OF ISIS.

THEY'RE A LITTLE MORE

SKITTISH OF TALKING TO

REPORTERS BECAUSE SOME OF

THEIR FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE

BEEN KIDNAPPED BY ISIS.

IT IS JUST A VERY -- THEY

HAVE -- I THINK IT HURTS

THEM TO SEE THINGS LIKE

THE PARIS ATTACKS AND

STUFF BECAUSE IT IS WHAT

THEY HAVE BEEN DEALING

WITH FOR YEARS AND NOW IT

IS GOING ALL OVER THE

WORLD.

Erick: IT IS GOING

GLOBAL AND WE'RE FEELING

IT HERE.

ABBEY, WHAT WAS YOUR

TAXPAYEREXPERIENCE WHILE ON THE

GROUND?

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE CAN

SAY THAT THEY WERE AT THE

CAMPS.

WHAT WAS THE SITUATION FOR

CHRISTIAN REFUGEES?

THEY DON'T LIVE IN THE

CAMPS BECAUSE THEY FACE

PERSECUTION THERE.

Erick: INSIDE THE

CAMPS?

INSIDE THE CAMPS.

YOU WILL NOT REALLY FIND

CHRISTIANS INSIDE THE

CAMPS.

SO THREE OR FOUR FAMILIES

WILL RENT ONE OR

TWO-BEDROOM APARTMENTS AND

LIVE TOGETHER.

AND THEY HAVE A REALLY BAD

SITUATION BECAUSE A LOT OF

THEM DIDN'T FLEE BECAUSE

THE BOMBS GOT A LITTLE TOO

MUCH TO HANDLE.

THESE PEOPLE WERE RUN OUT

OF THEIR CHRISTIAN

VILLAGES IN SYRIA.

Erick: BECAUSE THEY

WERE CHRISTIANS?

BECAUSE THEY WERE

CHRISTIANS.

THEY LIVED IN CHRISTIAN

CITIES THAT WERE -- THEIR

CHURCHES WERE BLOWN UP.

THEIR HOUSES WERE BLOWN

UP.

THEY HAVE NOTHING TO GO

BACK TO, AND THE ONES WHO

COULDN'T ESCAPE QUICK

ENOUGH WERE KIDNAPPED.

SO THEY HAVE FAMILY

MEMBERS IN ISIS CAPTIVITY,

AND IT IS A LOT MORE TENSE

OF A SITUATION FOR THEM.

THEY REALLY NEED PRAYER

AND THEY REALLY NEED

GROUPS TO KIND OF HELP

THEM AND REACH OUT TO

THEM.

BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT

GETTING THE SAME AID AS

OTHER PEOPLE INSIDE THE

CAMPS ARE.

Erick: SO THEY'RE

REALLY ON THEIR OWN.

AND THIS IS OUR BROTHERS

AND SISTERS IN CHRIST.

YOU WERE IN LEBANON, AND

YOU ALSO SPENT TIME IN A

REFUGEE CAMP IN FRANCE.

UH-HUH.

Erick: WE HAVE SUCH A

DEBATE ABOUT TAKING SYRIAN

REFUGEES, AND WHAT DID YOU

SEE ON THE GROUND IN THE

CAMPS.

COMPARED TO THE LEBANON

CAMPS, WHERE A LOT OF

PEOPLE WANT TO RETURN TO

SYRIA, THE PEOPLE IN

FRANCE DO NOT WANT TO GO

BACK.

THEY HEAR WHAT IS GOING

BACK IN SYRIA, AND THEY

DON'T WANT TO RETURN.

WHAT I SAW IS -- I WALKED

INTO ONE TENT, AND THERE

WAS A MAN, ABOUT 30 YEARS

OLD, CRYING, BECAUSE HE

WAS LOOKING AT PICTURES OF

HIS 4-YEAR-OLD AND

2-YEAR-OLD, AND HE REALLY

MISSES THEM.

THEY'RE STILL IN SYRIA

BECAUSE HE THINK THE

JOURNEY IS TOO HARD, AND

HE WANTS TO GET SETTLED

AND SENT FOR THEM.

WE WERE IN WHAT WAS KNOWN

AS THE JUNGLE, AND IT WAS

ONE OF THE WORST CAMPS IN

ALL OF EUROPE.

IT IS IN FRANCE, AND

20 MILES OUTSIDE OF THE

U.K., WHERE A LOT OF THE

REFUGEES ARE TRYING TO GET

TO, BECAUSE THEY SPEAK

ENGLISH, OR THEY HAVE

FAMILY THERE --

Erick: GENEROUS

WELFARE PROGRAMS IN

BRITAIN AS WELL?

UH-HUH.

IT IS A VERY TOUGH PLACE.

FOR SHOWERS -- IT IS NOT

SANITARY AT ALL.

THEY EACH GET ONE SHOWER A

WEEK.

THEY HAVE A FIVE-MINUTE

TIME SLOT, AND THEY SET UP

PORT-A-POTTIES, BUT THEY

DON'T CLEAN THEM, SO IT IS

DISGUSTING.

IT IS A HUGE HUMANITARIAN

CRISIS.

Erick: AND IT IS

FREEZING THERE.

IT IS FREEZING OUT

THERE.

IT IS BAD.

THEY HAVE TO FIGURE OUT

SOMETHING TO HELP THESE

PEOPLE.

BUT THERE ARE CHRISTIAN

GROUPS INSIDE THAT CAMP,

AND THEY ARE HAVING A HUGE

IMPACT ON THE PEOPLE

THERE.

THEY ARE LOVING THEM.

THEY'RE GETTING THEM

BLANKETS.

THEY'RE GIVING THEM FOOD,

AND IT IS REALLY MAKING A

DIFFERENCE.

Erick: THAT IS

ENCOURAGING TO HEAR.

THAT'S WHAT IT IS ALL

ABOUT.

ABIGAIL, THANK YOU.

COMING UP ON "THE 700

CLUB," ON CBN NEWS, AND

cbnnews.com, YOU'RE GOING

TO SEE MORE FROM ABIGAIL,

MORE OF HER ON THE GROUND

REPORTS FROM LEBANON AND

FRANCE.

THANKS AGAIN.

> COMING UP AFTER THE

BREAK, WHY DOES WINSTON

CHURCHILL MATTER TODAY?

AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHAT

WAS CHURCHILL'S

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD?

MUCH MORE COMING UP AFTER

THE BREAK.

STICK AROUND.

Erick: AND WELCOME

BACK.

WELL, IF YOU WATCH THIS

SHOW ON A REGULAR BASIS,

YOU KNOW I AM A BIG FAN OF

WINSTON CHURCHILL.

HE IS A GUY WHO SAW THE

GATHERING STORM OF NAZI

GERMANY, WHEN IT WASN'T

POPULAR TO CALL IT OUT,

AND HE TOOK IT HEAD-ON,

ENOUGH TO PRESERVE WESTERN

CIVILIZATION AND DEFEAT

THE NAZIS.

WELL, WHAT DROVE WINSTON

CHURCHILL?

AND EVEN MORE IMPORTANTLY,

WHAT WAS HIS RELATIONSHIP

LIKE WITH GOD?

A NEW BOOK -- A GREAT NEW

BOOK, CALLED "GOD IN

CHURCHILL," EXAMINES THE

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN

WINSTON CHURCHILL AND GOD

ALMIGHTY.

MY CBN COLLEAGUE HEATHER

SELLS RECENTLY SPENT TIME

WITH THE AUTHORS.

TAKE A LOOK.

THEY WILL HAVE TO BREAK

US IN HIS ISLAND OR LOSE

THE WAR.

IF WE CAN STAND UP TO HIM,

ALL EUROPE MAY BE FREE.

Reporter: HISTORIANS

CONSIDER HIM ONE OF THE

GREATEST LEADERS OF THE THE THE

MILLENNIUM.

MOST EXPERTS HAVE

CONSIDERED WINSTON

CHURCHILL TO BE AGNOSTIC,

BUT GREAT GRANDSON

JONATHAN SANDS SAYS

CHURCHILL MOVED ON FROM

THE AGNOSTIC DAYS OF HIS

YOUTH.

I DEFINITELY CONCLUDE

THAT MY GREAT GRANDFATHER

HAD A STRONG FAITHMEN FAITH.

IN THOSE DAYS, YOU DIDN'T

TALK ABOUT YOUR FAITH.

HE WAS A PRIME MINISTER.

HE BELIEVED THAT JESUS

WAS THE SAVIOR OF THE

WORLD.

HE BELIEVED IN THOSE

THINGS.

HE BELIEVED IN THE BIBLE

THAT WAS INSPIRED OF GOD.

Reporter: "GOD IN

CHURCHILL," THE AUTHOR

CITED A CONVERSATION

BETWEEN WINSTON CHURCHILL

AND HIS BODYGUARD.

WHILE ON A WALK ONE DAY,

THEY NARROWLY ESCAPED A

BOMB.

CHURCHILL TURNED TO

THOMPSON AND SAID, DON'T

WORRY, THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE LOOKING AFTER ME.

THOMPSON MISUNDERSTOOD

AND SAID, DO YOU MEAN

SERGEANT DAVIS.

AND GREAT GRANDFATHER

SHOOK HIS HEAD AND SAID

NO.

HE SAID, THERE IS SOMEONE

UP THERE WHO HAS A MISSION

FOR ME TO PERFORM, AND HE

INTENDS TO SEE THAT

IMAGINATION PERFORMED.

Reporter: SAMS

DECIDED TO WRITE THE BOOK

AFTER SPEAKING WITH AN

AUTHOR TO TOLD HIM OF

INFORMATION.

IT LED TO MULTIPLE

EXAMPLES WHERE CHURCHILL

PRIVATELY PREFERRED TO HIS

PERSONAL BELIEFS.

ONE DAY CHURCHILL SPOKE

FRANKLY ABOUT JESUS

CHRIST.

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT

JESUS CHRIST, MONTGOMERY

ASKS CHURCHILL.

AND CHURCHILL SAYS, JESUS

CHRIST WAS UNSURPASSED IN

HIS CAPACITY TO SAVE

SINNERS.

THOSE WERE HIS WORDS.

WE QUOTE THEM IN THE BOOK.

Reporter: HE CREDITS

CHURCHILL'S NANNY WITH

TEACHING HIM THE GOSPEL.

HIS NANNY, ELIZABETH

EVEREST, HAD PUMPED THE

WORD OF GOD INTO HIM.

HE ANALYZED THINGS FROM

THAT PERSPECTIVE.

UPON THIS DEPENDENTS

THDEPENDS THESURVIVAL OF CHRISTIAN

CIVILIZATION.

Reporter: HE CLEARLY

RECOGNIZED NAZIISM AS THE

PIT OF EVIL, EVEN WHEN

OTHERS DID NOT.

HE OPENLY ACKNOWLEDGED

THAT ONLY GOD COULD SEE

BRITAIN THROUGH THE WAR

AND ENCOURAGE THE BRITISH

TO PUT THEIR HOPE IN HIM.

AS THE WILL OF GOD IS

IN HEAVEN, EVEN S SO.

UNLIKE HITLER, GREAT

GRANDFATHER DIRECTED THE

HOPE OF THE PEOPLE TOWARDS

GOD.

WHENEVER HE USED GOD OR

USED A BIBLE QUOTE WITHIN

A SPEECH, IT WAS ALWAYS TO

PUSH THE PEOPLE'S HOPE

TOWARDS GOD.

Reporter: AND

CHURCHILL ALSO MODELED

CHRISTIAN VIRTUES, LIKE

FORGIVENESS.

HE APPOINTED SOME OF HIS

CRITICS TO HIS WAR-TIME

CABINET AND REFUSED TO

VILIFY THE GERMANS.

WHEN HE IS TALKING

ABOUT THE NAZIS, HE

SEPARATES THE NAZIS FROM

THE GERMAN PEOPLE.

HE WANTED FREEDOM FOR THE

PEOPLE OF GERMANY.

AND IT WAS VITAL THAT WE

DIDN'T REPEAT WHAT

HAPPENED AT THE END OF THE

FIRST WORLD WAR, WHERE

GERMANY WAS JUST TOTALLY

PUSHED ASIDE.

Reporter: SAMS AND

HENLEY POINT OUT THAT

CHURCHILL LED FROM A CORE

BELIEF AND DIVINE

DESTNITY.

AS A 16-YEAR-OLD SCHOOL

BOY, HE PROPHECIED TO A

FRIEND THAT LONDON WOULD

ONE DAY BE ATTACKED, AND

HE WOULD LEAD ENGLAND TO

VICTORY.

TO THEN STATE CLEARLY

AND WITH CONFIDENCE, NOT

ONLY IS HE GOING TO BE THE

LEADER, BUT YOU'RE GOING

TO LEAD YOUR COUNTRY AND

YOUR EMPIRE TO VICTORY.

THAT BECOMES ABSOLUTELY

IMPOSSIBLE.

BUT IN THE LIGHT OF

HISTORY IN 1945, YOU SEE

THAT IS ACTUALLY THE CASE.

Reporter: SAMS AND

HENLEY SAY IT IS ALMOST

UNBELIEVABLE HOW MANY

TIMES CHURCHILL ESCAPED

DEATH DURING HIS TIME IN

THE BORR WAR AND LATER IN

WORLD WAR I.

HIS PUBLIC REPUTATION

SANKS AS HE WARNED OF

HITLER AND THE NAZIS.

IN THE END, HITLER'S

ADVANCE THRO THROUGH EUROPE

VINDICATED CHURCHILL,

PERFECTLY PREPARING HIM TO

BECOME PRIME MINISTER.

WHEN I WARNED THEM --

GOD HIMSELF WAS

INTERVENING THROUGH THIS

MAN IN THAT PERIOD OF

HISTORY.

SO GOD WILL INTERVENE IN

OUR HISTORY.

HE WILL RAISE UP PEOPLE

LIKE THAT.

Reporter: SAMS AND

HENLEY SAY SUCH A BELIEF

CAN PROVIDE HOPE TODAY,

WHEN, ONCE AGAIN, THE

WORLD IS IN NEED OF A

STRONG LEADER TO STAND UP

AGAINST THE FORCES OF

DARKNESS.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

Erick: THANKS,

HEATHER.

> COMING UP, PRESIDENT

OBAMA SAYS HIS STRATEGY

AGAINST ISIS IS WORKING.

I DISAGREE.

FIND OUT MY STRATEGY TO

DEFEAT THE CALIPHATE AFTER

THE BREAK.

Erick: AND WELCOME

BACK.

WELL, PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS

HIS STRATEGY TO DEFEAT

ISIS IS WORKING.

I DISAGREE STRONGLY.

THE PRESIDENT REFUSES, NUR

NUMBER ONE, TO PUT ANY

KIND OF SIGNIFICANT GROUND

PRESENCE ON THE GROUND TO

FIGHT AGAINST ISIS IN IRAQ

AND SYRIA.

THAT'S A MISTAKE.

WE DON'T WANT A MAJOR

OCCUPATION OR GROUND

INVASION IN IRAQ OR

SYRIA -- THINK BACK TO

2001 IN AFGHANISTAN, U.S.

SPECIAL FORCES, THE

C.I.A., WERE ON THE GROUND

PROVIDING LEADERSHIP AND

GUIDING THE NORTHERN

ALLIANCE.

THEY WERE ABLE TO ROUTE

THE TALIBAN.

I BELIEVE WE CAN DO THE

SAME TODAY IN IRAQ AND

SYRIA, IF WE WORK WITH THE

KURDS.

FIERCE FIGHTERS, VERY

PRO-AMERICAN, BUT THE U.S.

NEEDS TO BE ON THE GROUND

LEADING THE WAY.

IT DOES NOT REQUIRE 50,000

OR 100,000 AMERICAN

TROOPS, BUT IT DOES

REQUIRE OUR BEST AND

BRIGHTEST, OUR SPECIAL

FORCES, OUR ELITE FORCES,

ON THE GROUND IN A

LEADERSHIP ROLE.

IT WOULD BE GREAT, FOLKS,

IF THE ARAB NATIONS WOULD

DO IT ON THEIR OWN.

IT WOULD BE A GREAT THING.

BUT IT'S NOT HAPPENING.

WE'RE THE LEADER OF THE

FREE WORLD.

WE HAVE A STAKE IN THIS

FIGHT.

REMEMBER AFGHANISTAN

BEFORE 9/11, AND

AL-QAEDA HAD A SAFE HAVEN

TO PLOT AND TO PLAN.

AND 9/11 HAPPENED.

TODAY ISIS HAS A SAFE

HAVEN TO PLOT AND PLAN

ACROSS 36,000 MILES OF

SYRIA AND IRAQ.

AND THEY HAVE THE ADDED

BENEFIT FOR THEM OF

THOUSANDS OF WESTERN

RECRUITS.

FOLKS, THIS IS A DANGEROUS

THING.

THAT SHOWS YOU HOW WE HAVE

A VITAL STAKE IN THIS

FIGHT AGAINST ISIS.

WE NEED TO TAKE A

LEADERSHIP ROLE.

IF YOU CRUSH ISIS

MILITARILY, YOU WILL

DEMORALIZE THE GLOBAL

MOVEMENT AND PUT A DENT IN

THE IDEOLOGY.

THAT'S WHAT WE NEED TO DO.

I DON'T THINK IT IS GOING

TO HAPPEN BEFORE

JANUARY 2017, BUT LET'S

STAY HOPEFUL, LET'S STAY

ENCOURAGED, AND LET'S STAY

IN PRAYER.

THAT'S IT FOR THIS EDITION

OF "THE WATCHMAN."

UNTIL NEXT WEEK, GOD BLESS

YOU AND REMEMBER, NEVER

HOLD YOUR PEACE.
