Well, welcome, ladies and gentlemen,

to this edition of the "700 Club."

Are you as confused as I am about all of these delegates--

how many delegates it takes, how many

for each state, how much is proportional, how much is

winner-take-all, how many you need, how many superdelegates

there are?

I mean, it is so baffling.

I think they set it up that way so nobody

would know if he ever won it.

Well, anyhow, today-- today is the real Super Tuesday.

And Donald Trump is moving to lock down

the Republican nomination with victories in Ohio and Florida.

But he's got tough competition in Ohio from Governor Kasich.

Well, and Hillary Clinton is trying

to hold off a challenge from Senator Bernie Sanders, who's

been gaining on her in some states.

Dale Hurd has this look at today's important primaries

and the race for the White House.

DALE HURD: It's a day that could be the critical turning

point in the race for president-- contests in five

states, including the delegate-rich, winner-take-all

states of Florida and Ohio.

This is a place I want to win.

This is the place.

This is going to do it.

DALE HURD: GOP front runner Donald Trump

was going to Ohio overnight attacking its governor

and his rival John Kasich.

The two are neck and neck in the polls there.

Kasich cannot make America great again-- can't do it.

If Trump loses Ohio, some experts

think that, when the Republicans meet in Cleveland,

it could be a contested convention.

If Kasich loses Ohio, he's likely out of the race.

But the Stop-Trump movement was in full effect.

This country's not about us tearing one another down.

DALE HURD: Rivals spent Monday reminding

voters of the recent violence at some of Trump's rallies.

Oh, look.

A Bernie Sander's sign!

Don't worry.

You're not going to get beat up at my rally!

The one difference between this and a Donald Trump rally

is I'm not asking anyone to punch you in the face.

There's no violence.

There's a love fest.

These are love fests.

DALE HURD: In Florida, Senator Marco Rubio

is determined to claim victory in his winner-take-all home

state despite polling behind Donald Trump in some cases

by more than 20 points.

In Charlotte, North Carolina, Democratic front runner Hillary

Clinton was blaming Trump for the violence at his rallies.

I do hold him responsible.

I think if you go back, now, several months,

he's been building this incitement.

DALE HURD: Clinton holds a wide lead in Florida and North

Carolina.

But recent polls show a tight race in Missouri and Sanders

narrowing her advantage in Illinois and Ohio.

Dale Hurd, CBN News.

You know, that violence-- I was listening

to one commentator who said that the violence--

the one person who attacked, he tried to jump the fence

and rush the stage.

You remember?

He wasn't some bystander who suddenly had been

activated by Trump's rhetoric.

He was a long-time leftist whose mother

is a professional leftist agitator.

And the whole question that we were dealing with

was somebody who was a professional agitator.

These aren't just people off the street who say, oh, I'm

disturbed because of the rhetoric.

And for Hillary Clinton to make like they were, that

just in ingenuous, I think.

Don't you?

Well, do you think-- I mean, one has to wonder,

when you watch that, who-- who sent or planted these people to

create this kind of chaos.

And is that out of fear for Trump's position?

Well, who knows.

I mean, you think that the-- if the left thinks

he's going to lose, then why do they attack him?

TERRY MEEUWSEN: Exactly.

And you know, it doesn't make any-- any sense.

But the last thing that I can remember

about really serious violence was in Chicago

under Mayor Daley when there was an anti-war protest

against Lyndon Johnson and, you know,

all that went along there.

And there was violence.

And police were throwing-- you know,

arresting people in hotel rooms.

And the demonstrators were throwing

bags of urine out of windows on top of the police.

And it was a bloody mess.

So folks, this is par for the course.

But these are not just peaceful people.

Just like the ones who went to Ferguson, Missouri,

they were professional agitators.

And you find these black people from New York City going down

the Missouri and then leading a riot and then saying, well,

look here's police brutality.

We're concerned about it.

Well, that isn't spontaneous.

And it's-- you know, it's planned.

And that's one of the keys of the left.

You know, that-- that's the playbook

of the radical initiatives that have been followed out

by Obama and the left.

I mean, you know, they have a playbook.

You know, here's what you do to take power.

Well, you just were talking about how confusing it is

to people who don't know the behind the scenes aspect--

That's right.

--of it on top of all that you mentioned

about the superdelegates and all of that business.

I mean, the whole thing is just crazy.

Well, you-- you need to spend a lot of time thinking about it.

And even if you have, you can't understand what's going on.

Well, in other news, a surprising

move by Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

My guess is that he was running out of money.

And this is a face-saving way because he can't

stand the heat any longer.

And he says, who needs Syria?

I'm losing my shirt.

But John Jessop has that story.

Pat, President Putin has ordered

the withdrawal of Russian military forces from Syria.

The move comes before a new round

of peace talks between Syria's president

Bashar al-Assad and opposition forces.

But Putin made clear Russia will maintain its naval facility,

air base, and some troops in Syria

after a nearly six-month campaign in that country.

Although the withdrawal coincides with Syrian peace

talks, the country remains deeply divided.

And terrorist groups are still fighting

to take over the country, which today marks

its fifth year of civil war.

A top ISIS leader has died from wounds suffered

in a US airstrike in Syria.

The Chechen terrorist Omar al-Shishani was easily

recognized by his red beard.

He was one of the more prominent Islamic State leaders,

serving as the military commander in Syria.

Despite some losses, ISIS still controls large amounts

of land in both Syria and Iraq.

Well, in Israel, Christian singer Pat Boone

won an award for his impact on culture in Jerusalem

for writing the title song to the 1960 epic film "Exodus."

Chris Mitchell explains the strong connection

between the singer songwriter and Israel.

CHRIS MITCHELL: Some call the song

Israel's second national anthem.

PAT BOONE: (SINGING) This land is mine.

God gave this land to me.

It came out of the Bible, yeah.

And I knew two things.

One, that everything in the Bible-- from beginning to end--

was written by Jews, about Jews, and for Jews.

Not all Christians even realize that and not all Jews.

What we call the Old and the New Testaments

all are about Jews and about God working with His chosen people

and that we Gentiles can get in on it

if we accept the God of Israel.

CHRIS MITCHELL: The Friends of Zion award

contains the song written in the shape of a harp, translated

into Hebrew.

Boone originally wrote the words on Christmas Eve

on the back of a Christmas card.

That card is now displayed in Israel's Holocaust Remembrance

Museum in Jerusalem, Yad Vashem.

PAT BOONE: I think this song, "Exodus,"

and the privilege I had writing the words for Ernest Gold's

great melody is part of the most significant time in my life

and maybe significant moments, maybe one of the main reasons

I was born.

CHRIS MITCHELL: Boone told CBN News

that this honor is one of the highlights of his life.

PAT BOONE: I can't imagine any other thing in my life,

other than my marriage and my own salvation,

that means as much as this.

The Friends of Zion Museum here in Jerusalem

honors Christian Zionists who gave their lives

to save the Jewish people during the Holocaust

and helped form the state of Israel.

Chairman of the Board Yossi Peled

is a retired IDF general and former government leader.

Born in Belgium in 1941, a Christian family

hid him to keep him safe.

From the age of six months until I became eight years old,

I was raised by a Christian family.

And I was used to go to-- to the way.

I went to the-- to church every Sunday

and crossed myself and crossed the bread before eating

and prayed to Jesus before going to bed.

CHRIS MITCHELL: Peled said he's proud to be part

of the Friends of Zion vision.

It's an-- an outstanding vision about Israel, this nation.

There's not only the-- the story because nothing is new,

basically, in the story.

But it's new in the way they're presented it.

(SINGING) Until I die, this land is mine!

CHRIS MITCHELL: Chris Mitchell, CBN News Jerusalem.

Pat Boone, a long time friend of the "700 Club."

Pat, back to you.

Well, he's a dear friend of mine.

And I am just grateful for him.

But that-- that is a, you know, great song.

That movie "Exodus" was a stirring film

about the return of the Jewish people to Israel

and the struggle they had to go through.

And the theme song, "This Land is Mine,"

that was written so quickly by Pat Boone.

But that-- that may-- you know, you

do a lot of things in your life that stand out.

And that may be one of his highlights.

But he's a terrific friend.

And he is a great friend of Israel, John.

Pat, here at home, severe flooding

is sweeping across the South leaving people

in parts of Mississippi concerned

about their homes being flooded by quickly-rising nearby lakes.

And in Louisiana, flooding left more than 5,000 homes

under water.

In some areas, it topped five feet above roadways.

It's getting where it comes up so

fast you can't prepare for it.

It came up a couple feet just in a few hours.

Between the floods and the hurricanes,

it's-- it's been pretty rough.

JOHN JESSUP: As the waters recede,

residents are trying to get back into their homes.

And Operation Blessing is there to help,

assisting families with gutting homes

or moving debris, restocking personal necessities,

and serving hot meals from a mobile kitchen.

Operation Blessing also has support teams

providing emotional and spiritual support

during this time of recovery.

And Pat, I know that this support is much

appreciated by those in need.

Well, I hope so.

I was down there after Katrina.

And Operation Blessing just didn't fly in

and take pictures and leave.

I mean, they stayed and stayed and stayed.

They were one of the first in and one of the last to go.

And they've made a huge contribution

because of the suffering.

Man, when I think of that Ninth Ward

and what they went through, the awful, awful--

when the levees broke, the flooding.

And now to see other people in Louisiana with that--

we've got some serious weather.

I don't know if it has anything to do with global warming

and what it is.

But there's extreme flooding, now, in the southeast.

Yeah, those folks are made of strong stuff.

Oh, man.

I mean, it's recovery, recovery, recovery.

But they need a hand.

And we're giving it to them.

And thank God we were able to do that, all right?

TERRY MEEUWSEN: Indeed.
