WEEK ON "JERUSALEM

DATELINE," CHRISTIANS AND

ISRAELIS WORK TOGETHER TO

FIGHT B.D.S.

PLUS, MEET A HOLOCAUST

SURVIVOR SAVED BY OSCAR

SCHINDLER.

AND DOZENS OF AMERICANS

COME TO JOIN THE I.D.F.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE ON

"JERUSALEM DATELINE."

HELLO, AND WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "JERUSALEM

DATELINE."

I'M JULIE STAAL.

THE LUTHERAN CHURCH IS THE

LATEST AMERICAN

DENOMINATION TO SUPPORT

THE B.D.S. AGAINST ISRAEL.

IN AN ATTEMPT TO FIGHT

BACK, ABOUT 100 CHRISTIAN

LEADERS ARE WORKING

TOGETHER.

SERVING IN THE I.D.F.

IS NOT THE ONLY WAY OF

BEING A SOLDIER FOR

ISRAEL.

ISRAEL'S SAFETY AND

WELL-BEING ARE THE

RESPONSIBILITY OF EVERY

JEW, OF EVERY CHRISTIAN

WHO LOVES ISRAEL IN EVERY

PLACE AND EVERY MOMENT OF

LIFE.

Julie: JOSEPH STABBA

IS PUSHING FOR LEGISLATION

IN THE UNITED STATES TO

FIGHT THE B.D.S. MOVEMENT

AGAINST ISRAEL.

IN MAY OF 2016, SOUTH

CAROLINA ADOPTED MODERN

REGULATION REGULATING

AGAINST BOYCOTTS AGAINST

ISRAEL.

Julie: THE B.D.S.

MOVEMENT FOLKS ITS

CAMPAIGN ON ISRAELI

COMPANIES OPERATING IN THE

WEST BANK.

IRONICALLY, THIS AFFECTS

PALESTINIANS GREATLY

BECAUSE WHEN ISRAELI

COMPANIES MOVE,

PALESTINIANS LOSE

GOOD-PAYING JOBS.

CRITICS SAY THE B.D.S.

MOVEMENT ISN'T ABOUT

JUSTICE OR HELPING THE

PALESTINIANS.

THE B.D.S. IS THAT

ISRAEL WILL LOSE ITS

LEGITIMACY TO DEFEND

ITSELF AND ULTIMATELY LOSE

ITS ABILITY TO EXIST IN

THE JEWISH SOVEREIGN

STATE.

OUR ENEMIES UNDERSTAND

THIS VERY WELL.

WHAT IS GOING ON WITH

B.D.S. IS A GLOBAL NAME

FOR ALL THE ISRAEL HATERS.

IT IS THE MISINFORMATION

THAT THEY'RE FEEDING TO

THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

Julie: BARRY SHAW,

AUTHOR OF "B.D.S. FOR

IDIOTS," SAYS IT IS

SIMPLE.

THE REASON THEY'RE

PROTESTING AGAINST THE

JEWISH STATES AND NOT THE

PALESTINIAN STATE IS

SIMPLY BECAUSE ISRAEL IS

THE JEWISH STATE.

THAT IS NO MORE OR NO LESS

THAN BLATENT

ANTI-SEMITISM.

Julie: SHAW SAYS IF@@

THE B.D.S.ers WERE

HONEST, THE BOYCOTTS WOULD

INCLUDE THE ISRAELI

TECHNOLOGY, LIKE THE

ISRAELI COMPONENTS IN

THEIR OWN LAPTOPS,

COMPUTERS, AND CELL

PHONES.

BUT THEY NEED THESE TO

COMMUNICATE THEIR LIES TO

THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

Julie: KNESSET MEMBER

MICHAEL ORIN SEES ONLY ONE

WAY TO COMBAT LIES.

WE BEAT TERROR WITH

VERY GOOD INTELLIGENCE.

BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE TRUE

DEFENSE AND ONE EFFECTIVE

WEAPON AGAINST DE

DELEGITIMIZEATION, AND

THAT IS THE TRUTH.

Julie: JOHN WAGGI

SHOWS US HOW THIS ECONOMIC

WAR IS BEING FOUGHT ON THE

COLLEGE CAMPUSES, IN THE

COURTS, AND EVEN IN

CHURCHESAMERICA.

IN AMERICA.

Reporter: WHEN THE

JERUSALEM MAYOR TRIED TO

ADDRESS A GROUP OF

STUDENTS, HE WAS SHOUTED

DOWN BY MEMBERS OF THE

B.D.S. MOVEMENT, WHICH

STANDS FOR BOYCOTT,

DIVESTMENT AND SANCTIONS.

IT IS A POWERFUL COALITION

OF GROUPS WAGING A

CULTURAL AND ECONOMIC WAR

AGAINST ISRAEL.

THIS "STAND WITH US"

CONFERENCE IS AN EFFORT TO

FIGHT THE DELUGE OF

ANTI-ISRAEL HOSTILITY ON

COLLEGE CAMPUS IN THE

GLOBAL ECONOMY.

CHER, AN ISRAELI STUDENT,

WAS SHOUTED DOWN AND

CALLED A WAR STUDENT WHILE

SHE WAS SPEAKING AT A

UNIVERSITY IN TAMPA.

THEY WAITED OUTSIDE OF

THE CLASS, AND WE HAD TO

HAVE A POLICE ESCORT TO

OUR CARS BECAUSE THEY KEPT

FOLLOWING US AND CALLING

US NAMES.

HOW CAN YOU SLEEP AT

NIGHT?

YOU ARE A MURDERER.

IT REALLY, REALLY

HURTS.

AS YOU CAN SEE, I'M

STANDING HERE, AND I'M A

CIVILIZED HUMAN BEING.

Reporter: HE SAYS HE

IS CONSTANTLY CHALLENGED

BY RUMORS AND HALF TRUTHS

BY HIS FOREIGN FRIENDS ON

SOCIAL MEDIA.

AND HE WAS SHOUTED DOWN ON

CAMPUS BY B.D.S.

SUPPORTERS.

STANDING UP SHOUTING

AND SCREAMING, AND NOT

EVEN HAVING AN OPEN

DISCUSSION.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH FOR

ME BUT NOT FOR THEE.

THAT IS THE MANTRA OF THE

B.D.S. SUPPORTERS ON

COLLEGE CAMPUSES.

Reporter: THIS SAN

DIEGO ATTORNEY DOES PRO

BONO WORK FOR PEOPLE

THREATENED BY THE B.D.S.

NETWORK.

HE IS ANGERED THAT THEY

ARE SINGLED OUT WITH THE

HELP OF SERIAL RIGHTS

ABUSERS.

THE ONE JEWISH STATE

THAT IS SO DESERVING OF

THIS -- IT CAN'T HELP BY

SPILL OVER TO JEWS ON

CAMPUSES AND JEWISH

BUSINESSES, TO PEOPLE WHO

ARE SUPPORTIVE OF ISRAEL.

ZIONISTS, AND NON-JEWISH

ZIONISTS.

THEY BECOME THE FOCUS OF

THIS VITRIOL AND HATE.

Reporter: SEVERAL

MAIN LINE PROTESTANT

CHURCHES ARE IN LINE.

IT IS THE SAME WAY THAT

THE CHURCHES TARGETED

APARTHEID IN THE 1980s.

SOME CHURCH LEADERS HAVE

BOUGHT INTO A CAMPAIGN OF

DISINFORMATION THAT

DISTORTS THE TRUE PICTURE

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

OFTENTIMES IT IS NOT

THE PEOPLE IN THE PEWS

THAT ARE ANGRY AT ISRAEL.

IT IS THE PEOPLE IN

LEADERSHIP POSITIONS THAT

ARE MOVING IN THIS

DIRECTION AND ON FALSE

INFORMATION, ON HALF

TRUTHS.

Reporter: ROSTEIN

SAYS SHE IS THANKFUL FOR

THE MILLIONS WHO SUPPORT

ISRAEL.

I'M A DAUGHTER OF A

HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR, AND

I'M GRATEFUL TO THE

COMMUNITY STANDING

SHOULDER TO SHOULDER WITH

THE STATE OF ISRAEL AND

THE JEWISH PEOPLE DURING

THESE B.D.S. COMPAIGNS.

SO THANK YOU.

John: JOHN WAGGI, CBN

NEWS, LOS ANGELES.

Julie: COMING UP,

MEET A REAL-LIFE HOLOCAUST

SURVIVOR FROM SCHINDLER'S

LIST.

Julie: WELCOME BACK

TO "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

SCHINDLER'S LIST STANDS AS

ONE OF THE MOST MOVING

FILMS OF ALL TIME.

THE MOVIE SHOWS HOW OSCAR

SCHINDLER SAVED NEARLY

1200 JEWS DURING THE

HOLOCAUST.

AS CHRIS MITCHELL REPORTS,

CHRISTIAN LEADERS RECENTLY

MET ONE OF SCHINDLER'S

SURVIVORS AT THE

REMEMBRANCE CENTER.

Chris: AT THE END OF

SCHINDLER'S LIST, MADE IN

1993, THE SURVIVORS PLACED

STONES OF REMEMBRANCE ON

HIS GRAVE IN JERUSALEM.

TODAY EVA RATTS IS ONE OF

THOSE SURVIVORS.

AS A YOUNG CHILD IN 1945,

SHE WAS NUMBER 201 ON

SCHINDLER'S LIST.

HER MOTHER, FELLA, WAS

NUMBER 202.

EVERY TIME I COME HERE,

I'M VERY MOVED, REALLY.

HE IS MY SU SURVIVOR.

PEOPLE ASK ME, HOW DO YOU

SURVIVE?

I SAY FIRST OF ALL,

ALMIGHTY GOD, SECOND, MY

MOTHER, AND THIRD, BECAUSE

OF SCHINDLER.

I LOVE MR. SCHINDLER.

ALL OF US LOVED HIM.

HE IS AN ANGEL OF MERCY,

REALLY.

WE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE IS

DOING, AND HOW DIFFICULT

IT IS DO IT.

Chris: RATTS LATER

TOLD THE GROUP ABOUT

SURVIVING THE HOLOCAUST

AND LIFE IN THE CAMP

BEFORE SHE MET SCHINDLER.

THE GERMANS WERE

TERRIBLE.

25 LASHES ON THE BEHIND

WAS EVERY DAY.

THEY HANGED PEOPLE IN THE

UPPER PLACES EVERY TWO

DAYS.

THERE WAS NO REASON.

I THINK THAT HITLER --

THEY ARE NOT HUMAN.

Chris: THESE

CHRISTIAN LEADERS CAME AS

PART OF A SEMINAR HOSTED

BYADBY YAD VISHIM.

IT IS COMMITTED TO EDUCATE

THIS PRESENT GENERATION

ABOUT THE DANGERS OF

ANTI-SEMITISM AND

REMAINING SILENT IN THE

FACE OF EVIL.

I THINK ABOUT THE

HOLOCAUST.

AND THE CHURCH WAS SILENT.

WE DON'T VE TO BE SILENT

TODAY.

Chris: SUSANNA LEADS

THE SEMINAR FOR CHRISTIAN

LEADERS.

THIS SEMINAR IS FOR

CHRISTIAN LEADERS.

WHEN WE THINK OF

ANTI-SEMITISM, WE USED TO

THINK ABOUT IT IN THE

PAST.

BUT NOW IN THE PAST TWO

YEARS, WE HAVE SEEN HOW

MUCH IT IS RISING ALL OVER

THE WORLD.

SO WE UNDERSTAND THAT

SUDDENLY THIS TOPIC IS

VERY URGENT, AND IT IS

REALLY IMPORTANT FOR

CHURCH LEADERS TO

UNDERSTAND WHAT IS

HAPPENING.

Chris: THE 10-DAY

SEMINAR HAD A DEEP IM

POCKET ON THE LEADERS.

THIS SEMINAR HAS BEEN A

STRETCH SPIRITUALLY,

ELECTUALLY, EMOTIONALLY.

AND IT HAS REALLY IMPACTED

MY VIEW OF THE HISTORY OF

THE JEWISH PEOPLE, TO BEx8

HERE IN THE LAND, TO MEET

THE PEOPLE, TO MEET THE

SURVIVORS.

IT HAS BEEN QUITE A MOVING

EXPERIENCE.

Chris: PASTOR JOSH

PHILLIPS PLANS TO TAKE

HOME A NEW PASSION.

A LOVE FOR ISRAEL AND

THE JEWISH PEOPLE I DIDN'T

KNOW I HAD, I DIDN'T KNOW

I NEEDED.

BUT A DESIRE TO BE A

PARTNER, AN ADVOCATE FOR

ISRAEL, FOR THE JEWISH

PEOPLE.

Chris: SHE BELIEVES

THAT MUCH OF THE CHURCH IS

STILL SILENT.

I SEE THE SILENCE OF

THE CHURCH.

WE ARE SILENT ABOUT

ANTI-SEMITISM.

MOST OF US DON'T REALLY

FEEL THAT IT TOUCHES US.

WE MIGHT SAY THAT IT IS

AWFUL, IT IS TERRIBLE, IT

IS WRONG.

BUT WE DON'T TAKE ANY

CONCRETE STEPS.

AND THAT SAME SILENCE ALSO

EXISTS WITH REGARD TO THE

PERSECUTION OF THE

CHRISTIANS.

WE'RE IN THE SAME BOAT.

CHRISTIANS AND JEWS.

MORE CHRISTIANS ARE BEING

MURDERED EVERY DAY THAN

JEWS.

THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST

AND OTHER PLACES.

WE NEED EACH OTHER.

THERE IS A PASSION OF

CIVILIZATIONS.

Chris: THIS MAN SEES

WORLD EVENTS FORCING A

BOND BETWEEN JEWS AND

CHRISTIANS.

WE BOTH HAVE TO WORK

TOGETHER BECAUSE THIS IS

SOMETHING THAT AFFECTS US

ALL.

WE HAVE TO KNOW WHAT THE

DANGERS ARE IN

FUNDAMENTAL, RADICAL,

EXTREMIST ISLAM.

EVIL CANNOT BE OVERLOOKED,

ESPECIALLY OVER THE

HOLOCAUST.

Chris: AND HE SEES

THE VALUE OF THESE

SEMINARS.

WE COME IN CONTACT WITH

THESE EVANGELICAL

PASTORINGPASTORS,AND IT GIVES US HOPE HERE

IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

THEY GIVE US A LOT OF

SUPPORT AND OPTIMISM,

WHICH IS IMPORTANT.

THEY EMBRACE US, AND WE

EMBRACE THEM.

IT COULDN'T BE BETTER.

Chris: RATTS AGREES.

I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW

WHAT SCHINDLER WAS.

SCHINDLER WAS NOT A JEW.

HE WAS A CHRISTIAN.

I'M SURE MANY CHRISTIANS,

MAYBE THEY WILL DO THE

SAME.

I BELIEVE IN THE

CHRISTIANS.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, YAD

VISHEM, JERUSALEM.

Julie: COMING UP, CAN

GERMANY HANDLE ALL OF THE

MIDDLE EASTERN REFUGEES

THEY'RE NOW ABSORBING?

Julie: WELCOME BACK.

FROM GERMANY PAST TO

GERMANY PRESENT, GERMAN

CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL

FAMOUSLY TOLD GERMANS THAT

THEIR COUNTRY CAN HANDLE

MILLIONS OF REFUGEES, BUT

THE REALITY HAS PROVEN TO

BE VERY DIFFERENT, AND ONE

VOICE IS WARNING OF A DARK

FUTURE.

DALE HURD BRINGS US THAT

STORY FROM GERMANY.

Reporter: FIVE

ATTACKS IN TWO WEEKS.

MOST WITH SOME CONNECTION

TO IMMIGRATION.

AND MORE ATTACKS ON THE

HORIZON.

IT HAS A LOT OF GERMANS

WONDERING WHETHER ANGELA

MERKEL, WITH HER OPEN DOOR

REFUGEE POLICY, HAS DONE

TO GERMANY.

IF IT IS REALLY MORE

DANGER OR NOT, BUT IT

FEELS MORE DANGER.

I'M A LITTLE BIT AFRAID

BECAUSE THE TERROR COMES

NEARER TO US.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: SOME SAY

ANGELA MERKEL'S POLITICAL

FATE WAS SEALED WHEN SHE

THREW OPEN GERMANY'S DOORS

TO MORE THAN A MILLION

MIGRANTS, AND TOLD THE

GERMAN PEOPLE THAT WE CAN

DO THIS.

AND NOW THE APPROVAL

RATING FOR THE WOMAN WHO

WAS ONCE ONE OF THE MOST

POPULAR CHANCELLORS IN

POST-WAR GERMANY HAS

COLLAPSED.

TERRORISM HAS NOW BECOME A

PART OF LIFE IN A NATION

THAT USED TO SEE VERY

LITTLE.

ALMOST DAILY TERROR

ATTACKS ACROSS WESTERN

EUROPE HAVE AN ENTIRE

CONTINENT ON EDGE.

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED IN

KOSOVO WHEN SOMEONE

SHOUTED ISIS AS A JOKE: A

STAMPEDE THAT INJURED 40

PEOPLE.

A LOT OF GERMANS WARNED

THAT MERKEL WAS BRINGING

DISASTER WITH HER REFUGEE

POLICIES, INCLUDING THE

WOMAN WHO AWOKE A LOT OF

GERMANS TO THE THREAT OF

ISLAM, HEIDI MUND, KNOWN

AS THE BRAVE GERMAN WOMAN.

THIS IS A VIDEO OF HEIDI,

INTERRUPTING AN IMAM, WENT

VIRAL ON THE INTERNET.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: NOW AFTER

THE FLOOD OF MOSTLY

REFUGEES INTO GERMANY, SHE

BELIEVES SOME GERMAN

LEADERS WANT TO DESTROY

THE NATION.

I'M REALLY CONVINCED

THERE ARE BAD PEOPLE OF

DARKNESS WHO WANT TO

DESTROY US.

THEY ARE SICK IN THEIR

OPINION.

AND THEY DON'T CARE IF IT

WILL COST LIVES OR NOT.

IF IT WILL BE BLOODY OR

NOT, YOU KNOW.

THEY WANT TO DESTROY.

THEY WANT TO TAKE OVER.

Reporter: AND BEFORE

THE TERRORISM THAT HIT

GERMANY, BEFORE THE NEW

YEAR'S EVE SEX ATTACKS IN

COLON AND OTHER CITIES,

HEIDI SAYS GOD SPOKE TO

HER ABOUT GERMANY'S

FUTURE.

GOD GAVE ME A VISION

OVER THE BORDER OF GERMANY

AND EUROPE.

AND HE GAVE IT TO ME TWO

TIMES IN THE LAST YEARS.

AND I SAW A HUMAN PRAYER

CHAIN STANDING AROUND

GERMANY AND PRAYING FOR

GERMANY AND FOR EUROPE.

I SPOKE OUT A WARNING,

FIRST TO MY BROTHERS AND

SISTERS IN CHRIST, THAT WE

HAVE TO PRAY AGAINST THIS

RAPING, WHICH WOULD COME

UP.

I TOLD THEM THAT WE WOULD

FACE DANGER, AND

ESPECIALLY OUR CHILDREN,

OUR GIRLS, OUR WOMEN.

Reporter: SHE SENT

THE WARNING TO HER

FOLLOWERS ON Facebook,

AND BECAUSE OF THAT, MUND

WAS REPORTED AND THE

INVESTIGATED BY THE LOCAL

PROSECUTOR FOR HATE

SPEECH.

THEN WHAT SHE WARNED US

CAME TRUE.

GERMANY IS NOW IN THE

GRIPS OF WHAT SOME ARE NOW

CALLING A RAPE EPIDEMIC.

THE HATE SPEECH

INVESTIGATION AGAINST

HEIDI HAS BEEN DROPPED.

HATE SPEECH -- AND I

DON'T HAVE HATRED IN MY

HEART.

NO.

I LOVE MY PEOPLE.

AND I ALSO LOVE THOSE

PEOPLE WHO ARE COMING IN.

I WANTED TO OPEN THE EYES

OF THE PEOPLE SO THAT THEY

COULD UNDERSTAND WHAT IS

GOING ON.

Reporter: HEIDI MUND

FEELS SHE KNOWS ANGELA

MERKEL BECAUSE BOTH GREW

UP UNDER COMMUNISM.

MERKEL WAS THE DAUGHTER OF

A PROTESTANT PASTOR, BUT

HEIDI MUND HAS HARSH WORDS

FOR GERMANY'S CHANCELLOR.

WHO IS MERKEL?

I'M SORRY, WHO IS SHE?

I HAVE BEEN A COMMUNIST, I

KNOW WHO SHE IS.

PEOPLE WHO THINK SHE IS A

CHRISTIAN, SHE WOULD NOT

DESTROY OUR COUNTRY.

SHE WOULD NOT DESTROY THE

PEOPLE HERE.

AND SHE IS DOING IT RIGHT

NOW.

Reporter: GERMANY IS

STILL UNDER THE CONTROL OF

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS,

THAT CASTS OPPONENTS OF

IMMIGRATION AS NAZIS AND

RACISTS.

ONE OF THE LEADERS IS BORN BJON

HERKEL.

I ONLY NOW THAT ANGELA

MERKEL IS THROWING OUR

COUNTRY INTO DISASTER.

Reporter: HE STILL

CONSIDERS GERMANY A

CHRISTIAN NATION BECAUSE

OF ITS CHRISTIAN

FOUNDATION.

HE SAYS GERMAN CANNOT

INTEGRATE MILLIONS OF

MUSLIMS BECAUSE ISLAM IS A

RELIGION STUCK IN THE

MIDDLE AGES.

BUT THE GROWING POPULARITY

FOR ALTERNATIVE FOR

GERMANY DOES NOT MEAN THE

NATION IS CLOSE TO A

TURNAROUND.

MERKEL HAS DOUBLED DOWN ON

HER REFUGEE PROGRAM,

ATTACKING OPPONENTS.

HEIDI MUND BELIEVES THE

FUTURE FOR GERMANY IS

CHAOS AND WAR.

BUT SHE WOULD NOT SAY IT

IS TOO LATE.

THE QUESTION, IS IT TOO

LATE?

I WILL TELL YOU WHEN IT IS

TOO LATE.

IT IS TOO LATE WHEN GOD

HAS GIVEN US UP.

THEN IT IS TOO LATE.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS, REPORTING FROM

GERMANY.

Julie: UP NEXT,

FULFILLING PROPHECY, JEWS

RETURN TO THEIR ANCIENT

HOMELANDS.

Julie: WELCOME BACK.

75 YOUNG JEWISH AMERICANS

AND CANADIANS ARRIVED IN

ISRAEL WITH THE GOAL OF

JOINING THE ISRAEL DEFENSE

FORCES.

THEY WERE AMONG 233 NEW

IMMIGRANTS FROM THE U.S.

AND CANADA THAT FLEW INTO

TEL AVIV ON A CHARTERED

FLIGHT.

HERE IS WHAT SOME OF THE

NEWCOMERS TOLD CBN NEWS

ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE.

I CAME FOR THE DREAM IN

ISRAEL.

IT IS SOMETHING I

DREAMED ABOUT DOING SINCE

WAS SEVEN YEARS OLD.

I THINK ISRAEL HAS A

RIGHT TO BE A COUNTRY.

I WANT TO DO WHAT I CAN TO

MAKE SURE IT STAYS A

COUNTRY AS LONG AS

POSSIBLE.

THE I.D.F. IS ESSENTIAL

FOR THE STATE OF ISRAEL.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST

DIFFICULT JOBS IN THE

WORLD, BUT IT HAS ONE OF

THE MOST HONORABLE

MISSIONS.

I'M UPSET THAT I HAD TO

LEAVE MY FAMILY, BUT IT IS

FOR SOMETHING BIGGER THAN

ME.

I WENT TO POLAND AND

SAW THE CONCENTRATION

CAMPS AND THE GHETTOS, AND

IT BECAME SO MUCH MORE

REAL TO ME.

THIS IS THE ONE PLACE I

KNOW IF SOMETHING HAPPENS,

THIS IS THE SAFETY PLACE.

THERE IS A FEELING OF

BELONGING HERE THAT YOU

DON'T HAVE ANYWHERE ELSE.

I COULDN'T SEE MYSELF

SPENDING MY LIFE IN ANY

OTHER PLACE.

SO I'M HERE.

ISRAEL MAKES ME BE THE

BEST PERSON I CAN BE.

AND I ALWAYS WANT TO BE

HERE WITH MY HUSBAND AND

MY NEW BABY.

I FEEL BLESSED.

IT HAS BEEN A LONG

TIME, ABOUT 48 YEARS,

SINCE I'VE WANTED TO LIVE

HERE.

AMERICA IS WONDERFUL, A

FANTASTIC COUNTRY, BUT

WE'RE VISITORS THERE.

Julie: AS WE'VE SEEN,

A GROWING NUMBER OF JEWS

ARE RETURNING TO ISRAEL.

IT IS PART OF A

FULFILLMENT OF PROPHECY

SPOKEN IN THE BIBLE.

CHARLENE AARON SPOKE WITH

THE HEAD OF ONE

ORGANIZATION ON THE FRONT

LINES, "HELPING THE JEWS

MAKE THEIR WAY HOME."

Charlene: SEEING

JEWISH PEOPLE RETURN TO

ISRAEL IS LITERALLY SEEING

PROPHECY UNFOLD.

ISAIAH AND EZEKIEL TALK

ABOUT IT.

IN EZEKIEL, IT SAYS I

WILL LIFT UP A BANNER, TO

THE GENTILES, AND THEY

SHALL BRING YOUR SONS AND

DAUGHTERS BACK.

Charlene: SHE HEADS

AN ORGANIZATION THAT HELPS

JEWS RETURN TO THEIR

BIBLICAL HOMELAND.

SHE SAYS SINCE 2014, THERE

HAS BEEN A 79% INCREASE OF

INQUIRIES ABOUT ASSISTANCE

TO RETURN TO ISRAEL.

IF I CAN JUST GIVE

GLORY TO GOD BECAUSE THIS

IS HIS WORK.

IN 1948, ISRAEL HAD

800,000 JEWISH PEOPLE IN

THE LAND, WHEN THEY BECAME

A NATION IN ONE DAY, LIKE

ISAIAH SAID.

NOW THERE IS OVER SIX

MILLION.

THAT IS INCREDIBLE, OVER

67 YEARS.

AND SO THEY'RE GOING BACK

BY PLANELOADS.

Charlene: OPERATION

EXODUS PARTNERS WITH

ISRAEL AND OTHER GROUPS TO

HELP JEWS MOVE TO ISRAEL.

AND IT PROVIDES

HUMANITARIAN AID TO

HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS AND

OTHEROTHERS.

WE PRAY FOR THEIR

SAFETY.

WE ALSO PRAY THAT THEY

WOULD GET JOBS QUICKLY.

AND THOSE THINGS ARE

HOLDING THEM BACK HERE,

THE FRUSTRATIONS.

THERE ARE FAMILY ISSUES

GOING ON.

CHILDREN WHO ARE SICK.

Charlene: MANOTI SAYS

THERE ARE MANY REASONS

JEWS ARE RETURNING TO

THEIR HOME LAND.

MANY ARE SAY HASHEM IS

CALLING US BACK TO THE

LAND.

OTHERS ARE SAYING, I WANT

MY CHILDREN TO BE RAISED

IN A JEWISH HOMELAND.

OTHER ONES ARE SAYING, I

WANT TO DEFEND ISRAEL.

I WANT TO BE THERE.

I'M A ZIONIST.

THEY SAY THIS IS 1939,

SOME OF THEM.

Charlene: MOTIVATED

BY LOVE FOR ISRAEL AND FOR

THE JEWISH PEOPLE,

"OPERATION EXODUS," OFFERS

MANOTI AND OTHERS THE

OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH

GOD, TO BRING HIS

PROPHECIES TO PASS.

YOU WAKE UP AND YOU

THINK, WHAT AN AWESOME

RESPONSIBILITY, AND WHAT

AN AWESOME JOY IT IS AT

THE SAME TIME.

IT IS IT'S JOY.

AND THERE IS A COST TO

STANDING WITH ISRAEL.

SO IT IS INTENSE, BUT I

LOVE IT.

I LOVE IT.

AND OUR WORKERS LOVE IT.

OUR VOLUNTEERS LOVE IT.

IT IS ONLY GOING TO GROW.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON.

CBN NEWS.

Julie: THAT'S IT FOR

THIS EDITION.

THANKS FOR JOINING US.

REMEMBER YOU CAN FOLLOW US

ON Facebook, TWITTER,

AND INSTAGRAM.

I'M JULIE STAAL.

WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME ON

JERUSALEM DATE LINE.
