Chris: THIS WEEK ON

"JERUSALEM DATELINE," WE

HEAD INTO THE JIHAD

CAPITAL OF.

Julie: EUROPE,

BRUSSELS, AND IT'S MOST

INFAMOUS NEIGHBORHOOD,

CALL MOLENBEEK.

AND HOW POLITICIANS AND

THE MEDIA HAVE HIT THE

DANGER OF RADICAL

ITLASTIC.

AND A REPORT ON THE SCOPE

OF CHRISTIAN PER

CONSTITUTION AROUNPERSECUTIONAROUND THE WO RLD.

AND A FEEL-GOOD STORY

ABOUT HOW SOME ISRAELI

DOCTORS AND NURSES ARE

SPREADING HOPING AND

GIVING THE GIFT OF LIFE BY

SAVING A CHILD'S HEART.

HELLO, AND WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "JERUSALEM

DATELINE."

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL.

MANY PEOPLE WERE SHOCKED

BUT NOT SURPRISED BY THE

TERROR ATTACKS IN

BRUSSELS.

THAT'S BECAUSE THEY SAY

THE TERRORISTS CAME FROM

AN AREA WHERE RADICAL

ISLAM HAS BEEN ALLOWED TO

THRIVE.

THAT'S WHAT I DSCOVERED

ON MY RECENT TRIP TO

BRUSSELS.

THIS IS THE NEIGHBORHOOD

OF MOLENBEEK, AND IT MAY

LOOK UNASSUMING, BUT

WITHIN IS A HOTBED OF

TERROR.

THREE MEMBERS OF THE

MASSACRE CAME FROM HERE.

AND IT WAS CONNECTED TO

LAST YEAR'S "CHARLIE

HEBDO" ATTACK, AND THE

KILLING OF FOUR PEOPLE AT

THE BRUSSELS' JEWISH

MUSEUM IN 2014.

MOST OF THE BELGIANS WHO

LEFT TO JOIN ISIS, ALSO

CAME FROM MOLENBEEK.

INSTEAD OF BOMBING ISIS,

THE CAPITAL IN FRANCE, IT

SHOULD BE BOMBING

MOLENBEEK.

ONE REASON WHY BRUSSELS

HAS EARNED THE TITLE THE

JIHAD CAPITAL OF EUROPE.

SOME MIGHT THINK MOLENBEEK

IS OUTSIDE BRUSSELS' CITY

LIMITS, AND IT IS NOT.

IT MUST BE VERY

CONFUSING FOR OUTSIDERS.

AND I'VE READ SOMETIMES IN

THE INTERNATIONAL PRESS,

THAT MOLENBEEK IS THE

SUBURB OF BRUSSELS.

SO PROBABLY THE

IMAGINATION OF THE AVERAGE

AMERICAN VIEWER IS

PROBABLY THINKING OF THE

SUBURB.

WHAT IS THE SUBURB?

SOMETHING 10, 15 MILES

OUTSIDE THE CITY CENTER.

BUT IT IS ONE MILE OR SO

FROM WHAT IS CONSIDERED

THE BRUSSELS CITY CENTER

IS.

Chris: A 20-MINUTE

WALK WOULD TAKE YOU TO A

MEMORIAL FOR VICTIMS OF

THE VERY ATTACK THAT

ORIGINATED IN THE

NEIGHBORHOOD.

AND MOLENBEEK IS JUST ONE

OF THE MANY ISLAMIC

NEIGHBORHOODS SPREAD

THROUGHOUT BELGIUM.

WE HAVE SOME PLACES OF

THE CITY OF BRUSSELS,

LAKAN, AND OTHER CITIES,

SO IT IS NOT ONLY

MOLENBEEK, BUT MOLENBEEK

IS ONE OF THE MOST

SYMBOLIC AND

REPRESENTATIVE.

Chris: VIVIENNE

TITLEBALM SAYS WHAT WENT

ON IN MOLENBEEK WAS AN

OPEN SECRET.

EVERYONE KNEW, WHAT THE

SOCIALIST MAYOR WAS

ALLOWING TO HAPPEN.

THE WAY HE BODES SOCIAL

PEACE WITH SOME MOSQUES

AND SOME IMAMS, SO, YES,

HE ALLOWS FOR THOSE

RADICALS TO EVOLVE IN A

CONTEXT WHERE THEY WERE

NOT THREATENED BY ANY

MEANS AND WHERE THEY COULD

DEVELOP THEIR STRATEGY.

Chris: SHE IS

REFERRING TO PHILLIP

MOREAU.

HE HAS REALLY TURNED A

BLIND EYE TO WHAT HAS

HAPPENED.

THE PARALLEL SOCIETIES,

THE RADICALIZATION, AND

ANYBODY WHO TRIED TO ALERT

THE PUBLIC TO WHAT'S GOING

ON WAS IMMEDIATELY SHUT

DOWN BY HIM.

Chris: BUT MOLENBEEK

IS JUST ONE EXAMPLE OF

RADICALIZED NEIGHBORHOODS

THROUGHOUT EUROPE.

IN THOSE PLACES, YOU

HAVE, FIRST, A VERY STRONG

HOMOGENEOUS POPULATION.

SO YOU HAVE QUARTERS,

AREAS, NEIGHBORHOODS, THAT

ARE ENTIRELY MUSLIM.

AND THEREFORE IT IS ALSO A

COMMUNITY EFFECT BECAUSE

YOU CAN BLEND IN VERY

EASILY.

YOU CAN HIDE, OBVIOUSLY,

LIKE SALAH ABDESLAM.

Chris: A FRENCH

MINISTER RECENTLY CLAIMED

AT LEAST 100 OF THESE

ENCLAVES EXIST IN FRANCE.

THE MOST FAMOUS EXAMPLE

NOW IS BRUSSELS IS CALLED

THE JIHAD CAPITAL OF

EUROPE.

AND I THINK IT IS CORRECT,

BUT YOU CAN ALSO SAY THAT

OF PARTS IN LONDON OR

PARTS IN FRANCE AND PARIS.

TODAY WE HAVE A CLEAR

AND IMMINENT THREAT ON

EUROPE.

Chris:

COUNTER-TERRORISM EXPERT

CLAUDE KAY SAYS THE

NUMBERS ADD UP TO A

MASSIVE THREAT.

OFFICIALLY IN EUROPE,

WE HAVE BETWEEN 7,000 AND

10,000 PEOPLE ALREADY

LINKED TO THE TERRORISTS.

TO THOSE PEOPLE, YOU MUST

ADD PROBABLY 5,000 TO

10,000 FOLLOWERS AT

COULD RADICALIZE AND

BECOME TERRORISTS TONIGHT

OR TOMORROW MORNING.

Chris: AND HE SAYS

EUROPE SHOULD SEE

MOLENBEEK AS A WARNING.

IN BELGIUM OR FLANDERS,

WE ARE NOT YET A MINORITY.

WE HAVE 7% MUSLIMS IN

BELGIUM.

BUT IN SOME CITIES AND IN

SOME AREAS, WE ARE ALREADY

A MINORITY, LIKE IN

MOLENBEEK, FOR EXAMPLE.

AND YOU SEE WHAT IS AS A

RESULT OF THAT: TERRORISM,

JIHADISM, SHAR'IA LAW

INTRODUCED.

YEAH, SO NEVER BECOME A

MINORITY.

Chris: HE RECOMMENDS

LISTENING TO FORMERxox

MUSLIMS.

I KNOW MANY OF THEM,

AND THEY ALL SAY THE SAME:

DON'T LET YOUR COUNTRY

ISLAMIZE BECAUSE ISLAM IS

A VIOLENT IDEOLOGY.

AND THEY CAN KNOW IT

BECAUSE THEY EXPERIENCED

IT.

WHY SHOULDN'T WE BELIEVE

THESE PEOPLE?

WE ALSO BELIEVED FORMER

COMMUNISTS WHO SAID THE

SAME ABOUT COMMUNISM.

WELL, THE SAME GOES FOR

ISLAM.

WE SHOULD LISTEN TO THE

PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCED IT.

Chris: WEEKS AGO IN

THAT NEIGHBORHOOD WAS A

REVELATION.

THEY AREN'T TELLING US THE

TRUTH.

THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE IN

EUROPE HAVE BEEN SAYING

AFTER THEY FOUND OUT THEIR

GOVERNMENTS AND NEWS MEDIA

HAD BEEN COVERING UP THE

ACTIONS OF SOME OF THE

IMMIGRANTS IN THEIR

COUNTRIES.

AND THOSE ACTIONS INCLUDE

CRIME, CHAOS, AND

TERRORISM.

DALE HURD BRINGS US THIS

SHOCKING REPORT.

Reporter: WE NOW KNOW

THERE HAS BEEN A COVERUP

BY GOVERNMENTS IN THE

MEDIA IN WESTERN EUROPE

ABOUT THE POTENTIAL DANGER

OF IMMIGRATION FROM THE

ISLAMIC WORLD.

IT WAS A CONSPIRACY

INVOLVING POLITICIANS,

POLICE OFFICIALS, AND

JOURNALISTS.

EUROPEANS WERE PROGRAMMED

BY A RELENTLESS MEDIA

CAMPAIGN TO BELIEVE

IMMIGRATION WAS GOOD, AND

CRITICISM OF IMMIGRATION

WAS RACIST.

MONTHS BEFORE THE DEADLY

ISLAMIC TERROR ATTACKS IN

BELGIUM, LEFT-WING

DEMONSTRATORS WERE PLAYING

DEAD IN THE STREETS,

PROTESTING FOR MORE

IMMIGRATION FROM THE

MIDDLE EAST AND AGAINST

STRONGER BORDERS IN

EUROPE.

STRONGER BORDERS THAT

MIGHT HAVE SAVED THE LIVES

OF 34 PEOPLE KILLED IN

BRUSSELS LAST MONTH.

NO MORE WALLS IN

EUROPE!

Reporter: THE LEFT'S

MANTRA HAS BEEN NO WALLS,

NO BORDERS, BUT MANY

EUROPEANS NOW REALIZE THEY

WERE SOLD A BILL OF GOODS

ABOUT OPEN BORDERS AND

IMMIGRATION.

IN MEDIA COMPAIGNS LIKE

THIS, IT WAS MEANT TO

CONDITION EUROPEANS TO

FEEL BADLY ABOUT OPPOSING

IMMIGRATION.

THEY HAVE ALWAYS HAD A

PROBLEM WITH ARROGANCE.

ESPECIALLY THE NEWS.

ALL OF THE BANKERS AND

POLITICIANS.

THERE ARE SOCIAL BENEFITS

ABUSES, AND STEALING

HONEST PEOPLE'S JOBS FOR

PEANUTS AND STEALING

PEOPLE'S LIVES.

Reporter: VOICES WHO

WARNED ABOUT THE THREAT

FROM OPEN IMMIGRATION WERE

EITHER BRANDED RACIST OR

SIMPLY IGNORED.

THIS BELGIAN LEADER WARNED

CBN NEWS A YEAR AND A HALF

AGO THAT THE BELGIUM

GOVERNMENT WAS TOO SOFT ON

MUSLIM EXTREMISTS, AND

MORE ATTACKS WERE COMING.

I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN

SAY IT RIGHT IN ENGLISH,

BUT IF YOU WANT TO EAT

WITH THE DEVIL, YOU NEED A

VERY LONG FORK.

I THINK THERE IS NO FORK

LONG ENOUGH TO EAT WITH

ISLAM.

Reporter: AND THE

MULTI-CULTURAL CHARADE HAS

CRUMBLED, IN COLOGNE,

WHERE THEY TRIED TO COVER

UP SEX ATTACKS, AND IN

SWEDEN, WHEN THE POLICE

AND THE MEDIA COVERED UP

LARGE-SCALE SEXUAL

ASSAULTS AT THE SUMMER

MUSIC FESTIVAL IN

STOCKHOLM LAST YEAR.

AND IN BRUSSELS, WHICH

BECAME A HOME TO SOME OF

THE MOST DANGEROUS

TERRORISTS IN EUROPE.

MUSLIMS MAKE UP ALMOST

HALF OF BELGIUM'S PRISON

POPULATION.

JEWS EVERYWHERE LIVE IN

FEAR.

THIS DIDN'T JUST HAPPEN,

BUT IN MANY CASES THE

INFORMATION ABOUT IT WAS

EXPRESSED.

SWEDEN HAS BEEN NOTORIOUS

TO CENSORING THE PROBLEMS

OF IMMIGRATION.

NEWSPAPERS OBSCURED THE

FACES AND CHANGED THE SKIN

TONE OF CRIME SUSPECTS

WITH IMMIGRANT

BACKGROUNDS, BUT SHOWED

THEIR FACES IF THEY WERE

WHITE, NATIVE VEEDZ.

SWEDES.

THE SWEDISH POLICE EVEN

HAD A SPECIAL CODE WHEN

HANDLING IMMIGRANT CRIME:

291.

CODE 291, THIS IS NOW

IN EVERY NEWSPAPER, AND

THEY'RE REPORTING THIS.

THE POLICE WERE TOLD TO

COVER UP ANY CRIME

RELATING TO THE REFUGEES.

DO NOT TELL THE MEDIA.

DO NOT LEAVE A PAPER

THREAT.

AND APPARENTLY WE'RE

FINDING OUT NOW THERE WERE

HUNDREDS OF VIOLENT

CRIMES.

Reporter: SOME SWEDES

HAVE BECOME SO FRUSTRATED

WITH THE CENSORSHIP, THEY

GO TO SOCIAL MEDIA TO GET

THE TRUTH OUT THEMSELVES.

HEY, WELCOME TO SWEDEN.

THIS IS THE NUMBER ONE

RAPE CAPITAL OF EUROPE.

Reporter: A LOT OF

SWEDES ARE ANGRY.

THEY REALIZE THEY'VE BEEN

LIED TO.

AND SOME ARE WONDERING

WHAT ELSE ARE THE

GOVERNMENT AND MEDIA

HIDING FROM US.

YOU HAVE A LOT OF

PROBLEMS THAT WERE NEVER

REPORTED UNTIL A FEW,

LITERALLY, DAYS AGO.

BUT THEY DECIDED IT WAS

AGAINST THE IDEOLOGICAL

AGENDA.

THEY COVERED IT UP.

Reporter: THE MAN WHO

FOUND EVIDENCE THAT ONE OF

SWEDEN'S LARGEST PAPERS

COVERED UP THE SEX

ASSAULTS IN STOCKHOLM IS

JOURNALIST CHANG FRICK.

WHO SAYS JOURNALISTS HAVE

BEEN TOO AFRAID OR NOT

ALLOWED TO REPORT THE

TRUTH.

I READ BOOKS ABOUT WHAT

LIFE WAS IN SOVIET UNION

AND THIS AND THAT,

EVERYBODY WAS CHECKING

EACH OTHER.

THIS IS THE SITUATION WE

HAVE GOT IN SWEDEN.

IT IS MORE IN A SOFT WAY.

YOU DON'T GET PUT IN JAIL,

BUT YOU LOSE YOUR JOB.

YOU WILL GET SOCIAL

STIGMATIZED.

Reporter: A PAPER

SAYS THE CLAIM THAT IT WAS

A PART OF A COVERUP IS A

LIE AND IT COULD NOT

CONFIRM THE STORY.

INGRID CARLQUEST, A

DISTINGUISHED FELLOW, HAS

BEEN WARNING SWEDES FOR

YEARS THEY WERE BEING

MISLED ABOUT IMMIGRATION.

AND NOW SHE FEELS

VINDICATION.

I'VE BEEN TRYING TO

TELL THE SWEDISH PEOPLE

THIS FOR FIVE YEARS OR

SOMETHING, AND EVERYBODY

SAID, NO, IT CONT B COULDN'T BE

LIKE THAT.

POLITICIANS DON'T LIE LIKE

THAT.

THEY LIE ABOUT LITTLE

THINGS.

JOURNALISTS, THEY COULDN'T

LIE ABOUT THIS.

NO, NO, NO.

NOW EVERYTHING HAS

EXPLODED, AND THERE IS NOT

A LIVING PERSON IN THIS

COUNTRY WHO CAN GO ON

DOING LIKE THIS.

(COVERING EYES).

BECAUSE NOW IT IS OUT

THERE.

Reporter: SWEDISH

IMMIGRATION POLICY HAS NOW

CHANGED, IT WAS FORCED TO.

BUT IF YOU THINK THE

EUROPEAN LEFT HAS LEARNED

ITS LESSON ABOUT THE

DANGER OF OPEN BORDERS,

YOU WOULD BE WRONG.

AFTER THE BRUSSELS ATTACK,

THERE WERE ARTICLES

BLAMING TERRORISM ON

RACISM, AND CALLING FOR

CONTINUED OPEN BORDERS.

AND THERE ARE, OF COURSE,

REFUGEES WHO NEED HELP.

BUT EUROPE'S MISPLACED

GENEROSITY HAS BROUGHT WAR

TO ITS DOORSTEP.

AND SOME BELIEVE THAT

POLITICIANS AND

JOURNALISTS NOW HAVE BLOOD

ON THEIR HANDS.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM BRUSSELS IN

STOCKHOLM.

Chris: COMING UP, AN

IMPORTANT AND ALARMING

REPORT ON THE RISE OF

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION

AROUND THE WORLD, WHEN WE

Chris: WELCOME BACK

TO "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION IS

ON THE RISE AROUND THE

WORLD, ACCORDING TO "OPEN

DOORS U.S.A.."

THE GROUP'S PRESIDENT,

DAVID CURRIE, SAYS MANY

AMERICANS DON'T UNDERSTAND

HOW SERIES THE STATE OF

CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION IS

THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, AND

HE EXPECTS IT TO GET

WORSE.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON BRINGS

US THIS STORY.

Reporter: RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM IS A FAR-OFF DREAM

FOR MANY CHRISTIANS FACING

DAILY PERSECUTION.

THE LIFE OF RELIGIOUS

MINORITIES, AND ESPECIALLY

BELIEVERS AND CHRISTIANS,

ARE MISERABLE IN PAKISTAN.

WE HAVE BEEN PERSECUTED.

Reporter: HORRIFIC

EVENTS, LIKE THE TALIBAN'S

EASTER ATTACK, KEEP

HAPPENING, AND CHRISTIANS

SEE LITTLE TO NO

PROTECTION FROM THEIR

GOVERNMENTS.

THE GOVERNMENTS STILL

ARE NOT DOING WHAT IS

NEEDED IN PAKISTAN.

AND RIGHT NOW IT IS NOT A

MATTER OF FREEDOM; IT IS A

MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH.

Reporter: SEVERAL

EXPERTS ON RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM MET IN WASHINGTON

TO DISCUSS HOW GLOBAL

RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION

AFFECTS THE UNITED STATES.

FORMER CONGRESSMAN FRANK

WOLF SAID THIS IS A

NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE

FOR THE UNITED STATES, AND

CONGRESS HAS GOT TO WAKE

UP AND TAKE ACTION.

THE ADMINISTRATION AND

THE CONGRESS HAVE TO DEAL

WITH IT OR ELSE SOME VERY

BAD THINGS ARE GOING TO

HAPPEN IN THE WORLD.

Reporter: WOLF SAYS

HE AGREES WITH THE POPE,

THAT WE ARE IN WORLD WAR

III.

WE ARE IN WORLD WAR

III, AND SO CONGRESS

SHOULD BE DEALING WITH

THIS.

FORGET THE ADMINISTRATION.

HOLD EXTENSIVE HEARINGS,

BRINGING PEOPLE IN,

BRINGING THE BEST

POLITICAL MINDS IN, THE

BEST MILITARY MINDS IN,

AND DEALING WITH THIS.

Reporter: AND HE SAYS

THERE IS AA AN UNDENIABLE

CONNECTION BETWEEN THE

TERROR ATTACKS AROUND THE

WORLD.

THERE IS A CONNECTION

WITH BOKO HARAM, AND THERE

IS A CONNECTION WITH

al-SHABAAB, AND THERE IS

CONNECTION WITH WHAT IS

TAKING PLACE IN LIBYA.

WE SAW WHAT TOOK PLACE IN

FRANCE AND WHAT TOOK PLACE

IN SAN BERNARDINO.

Reporter: THIS WOMAN

STARTED A GROUP CALLED

"HARD WIRED GLOBAL."

WHICH ENCOURAGES PEOPLE TO

FIGHT TO CHANGE LAWS FOR

THE OPPRESSED PEOPLE OF

MINORITY RELIGIONS.

YOU SEE THIS RELIGIOUS

FREEDOM BEGINNING TO

EMERGE.

WHAT WE SAW SINCE WE'VE

BEEN TRAINING LEADERS

THROUGHOUT IRAQ, IS THAT

THEY ARE BEING INSPIRED.

THEY HAVE DEVELOPED A

GREATER APPRECIATION FOR

PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT

FAITHS, AND FOR THE

FREEDOM THAT OTHER FAITHS

PRACTICE THEIR RELIGION.

Reporter: THE

PANELISTS ARE ENCOURAGED

IN THE FACT THEY'RE MAKING

A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES

OF THE PEOPLE THEY'RE

REACHING.

REPORTING FROM THE FAMILY

RESEARCH COUNCIL IN

WASHINGTON, ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON, CBN NEWS.

Chris: YOU CAN FIND

OUT MORE ABOUT PERSECUTION

AND WHAT IS BEING DONE TO

STOP IT ON cbnnews.com.

> UP NEXT...A STORY OF

HOPE AND REDEMPTION FOR A

YOUNG AFRICAN GIRL THAT

Chris: WELCOME BACK.

AS JOURNALISTS, WE OFTEN

TELL A STORY AND DON'T

ALWAYS SEE WHAT HAPPENS

DOWN THE ROAD.

BUT CBN NEWS WAS

PRIVILEGED RECENTLY TO SEE

HOW LIFE-SAVING HEART

SURGERY IN ISRAEL AFFECTED

THE LIFE OF A TANZANIA

ORPHAN.

JULIE STAAL HAS THAT

STORY.

Julie: THAT'S THE

SOUND OF A HEALTHY HEART,

BUT IT HASN'T ALWAYS BEEN

THAT WAY FOR ESTHER, A

14-YEAR-OLD TANZANIAN

ORPHAN.

SHE SUFFERED FROM RHEUM

RHEUMATIC HEART DISEASE AS

A YOUNG CHILD.

CBN FIRST MET ESTHER AS

"SAVE A CHILD'S HEART"

WORKED TO GET HER

LIFE-SAVING SURGERY.

THE DOCTOR MET ESTHER IN

ISRAEL THEN, AND EXAMINED

HER RECENTLY IN TANZANIA,

DURING A "SAVE A CHILD'S

HEART" MEDICAL MISSION.

ONCE SHE CAME TO

ISRAEL, THE VALVES WERE

LEAKING SO BADLY, THE

HEART WAS ENLARGED TO

TWICE THE SIZE OF A CHILD.

SHE HAD THE SIZE OF A

HEART OF AN OLD MAN.

Julie: ESTHER MADE

WHAT SOME SAY WAS A

MIRACULOUS JOURNEY TO GET

HERE FOR THE SURGERY THAT

SAVED HER LIFE.

SO WE BROUGHT HER TO

THE HOSPITAL IN NAIROBI,

AND THERE SHE WAS TOLD SHE

NEEDED AN OPERATION OR SHE

WOULD LIVE ONLY ONE OR ONE

AND A HALF MORE YEARS.

Julie: ON THE BUS

RIDE HOME, AN AMAZING

THING HAPPENED.

SHE ENTERTAINED ALL OF

THE PASSENGERS, AND THEY

ASKED ME, WHO IS THIS

GIRL?

AND SHE WAS EIGHT AT THAT

TIME, AND THERE WAS A

YOUNG LADY NEXT TO ME, AND

WHEN I TOLD THEM SHE HAS A

HEART PROBLEM AND NEEDS AN

OPERATION, SHE SAID I JU

CAME FROM ISRAEL, AND THEY

HAVE A HEART GROUP THERE

AND YOU SHOULD CONTACT

THEM.

Julie: AND SHE DID.

SHE FOUND OUT THAT "SAVE A

CHILD" WAS COMING IN TWO

DAYS TO CLIMB A TAN TANZANIAN

MOUNTAIN.

AND THEY MET ESTHER AND

SAW SHE WAS A CANDIDATE

FOR SURGERY.

DR. LEOR SASSON OPERATED

ON ESTHER FOR HOURS.

HER HEART WAS HUGE.

EVEN SIMPLE WALKING WAS

DIFFICULT FOR HER.

Julie: FAST FORWARD

TO 2016, AND A FAMILY

REUNION OF SORTS.

WE CAUGHT UP WITH ESTHER

WHEN "SAVE A CHILD'S

HEART" WENT TO TANZANIA ON

A CARDIAC MEDICAL MISSION.

ESTHER CAME FOR A CHECKUP

AND TO VISIT HER ISRAELI

FRIENDS.

I FEEL VERY BETTER.

I THANK GOOD BECAUSE THEY

HAVE BEEN TAKING CARE OF

ME FROM THE BEGINNING

UNTIL NOW.

NOW.

I'M VERY HAPPY TO HAVE

ISRAEL AS MY FRIEND AND

FAMILY.

Julie: BEFORE THE

SURGERY, ESTHER HAD NO

ENERGY.

NOW SHE IS NUMBER ONE IN

HER CLASS.

AND ESTHER HAS BIG PLANS

FOR THE FUTURE.

I WANT TO BECOME A

CARDIOLOGIST.

I WANT TO HELP MY FRIENDS.

Julie: THAT WOULD BE

GOOD.

TANZANIA HAS 50 MILLION

PEOPLE AND ONLY ONE HEART

HOSPITAL.

DR. GODFREY TRAINED WITH

"SAVE A CHILD'S HEART" FOR

FIVE YEARS, AND THIS IS

WHAT HE TOLD CBN NEWS.

THIS TRAINING IS

ONE-OF-A-KIND FOR MY

COUNTRY.

HOPEFULLY WHEN I GO BACK,

I WILL ACTUALLY START OPEN

HOUSE SURGERY FOR THE

YOUNG KIDS.

Julie: NOW HE IS BACK

IN TANZANIA AS THE ONLY

PEDIATRIC HEART SURGEON IN

THE COUNTRY.

HE HAS GOT 500 CHILDREN ON

HIS WAITING LIST.

WE NEED TO GROW MORE,

TO TRAIN MORE PEOPLE.

IF WE LOOK AT THE

POPULATION THAT WE HAVE,

WE AT LEAST NEED MAYBE 20

CENTERS THAT CAN PERFORM

OPEN-HEART SURGERY FOR

CHILDREN FOR THIS COUNTRY.

Julie: AND WHAT WOULD

ESTHER TELL OTHER CHILDREN

THAT NEED SURGERY?

DON'T BE SCARED BECAUSE

YOU CAN'T EVEN HEAR

ANYTHING.

IT IS NOT PAINFUL.

YOU JUST SLEEP, AS IF

YOU'RE IN HEAVEN.

Julie: JULIE STAAL,

CBN NEWS, COLOGNE, ISRAEL,

AND DAR SALON, TANZANIA.

Chris: UP NEXT, SOME

THOUGHTS ON THE TERROR

ATTACKS IN BRUSSELS, AND

HOW THE CHURCH CAN RESPOND

TO THE CHALLENGING DAYS

*

Chris: WELCOME BACK

TO "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

RECENTLY CBN NEWS HAD THE

OPPORTUNITY TO REPORT ON

THE TRAGEDY AND TERROR IN

BRUSSELS.

MORE THAN 30 PEOPLE DIED

AND HUNDREDS MORE WERE

INJURED IN A TERROR ATTACK

THAT STRUCK THE HEART OF

EUROPE.

JUST THREE TERRORISTS WITH

HOMEMADE INGREDIENTS FOR

THEIR BOMBS SHUT DOWN A

MAJOR AIRPORT, PARALYZED

THE CITY, AND SENT

PSYCHOLOGICAL SHOCKWAVES

AROUND THE FREE WORLD.

WUONE COUNTER-TERRORIST

EXPERT SAYS HE ESTIMATES

7,000 TO 10,000 TERRORISTS

ARE LIVING INSIDE EUROPE.

WE SHOULD ALSO NOTE THE

EXPERTS BELIEVE THAT THE

TERROR ATTACK WAS

ORIGINALLY PLANNED FOR

EASTER SUNDAY.

PERHAPS THE MAJOR

CHRISTIAN HOLIDAY OF THE

YEAR.

THE TERRORISTS WANTED TO

ATTACK THE CHURCH, AND

THAT'S WHERE THE BODY OF

MESSIAH COMES IN.

DURING THE EASTER SERVICE

I ATTENDED JUST OUTSIDE OF

BRUSSELS, IT STRUCK ME

THAT THE CHURCH AND ITS

POWER TO PRAY, HOLDS A KEY

TO COMBATING THE POTENTIAL

TSUNAMI OF TERROR.

GOD COMMANDED US NOT ONLY

TO PRAY FOR THE PEACE OF

JERUSALEM, BUT ALSO FOR

THE PEACE OF THE CITY IN

WHICH HE PLANTED US.

> IN THE DAYS AHEAD, I

BELIEVE THIS WILL BE A

POWERFUL TOOL AGAINST THE

FORCES OF DARKNESS

REIGNING AGAINST US.

THAT'S ALL FOR THIS

EDITION OF "JERUSALEM

DATELINE."

THANKS FOR JOINING US.

REMEMBER YOU CAN FOLLOW US

ON Facebook AND TWITTER

AND INSTAGRAM.

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL.

WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME ON

"JERUSALEM DATELINE."
