THIS WEEK ON "JERUSALEM

DATELINE," IRAN DEPLOYS

ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST

SOPHISTICATED DEFENSE

SYSTEMS TO PROTECT A

SENSITIVE NUCLEAR SITE.

AND A TOP ISIS LEADER IS

KILLED IN AN AIRSTRIKE.

> PLUS, SEE THE DESERT

BLOOM AND AN ANCIENT PLANT

COME TO LIFE.

> AND THE MIRACLE OF

ALIAH, THE RETURN OF THE

JEWISH PEOPLE TO THE LAND

OF PROMISE CONTINUES.

ALL THIS AND MORE THIS

WEEK ON "JERUSALEM

DATELINE."

Chris: HELLO, AND

WELCOME TO THIS EDITION OF

"JERUSALEM DATELINE."

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL.

WE'RE COMING TO YOU THIS

WEEK FROM THE RAMPARTS

WALK ON THE WALLS OF THE

OLD CITY, WHERE YOU HAVE

VIEWS OF BOTH THE OLD AND

THE NEW CITY.

IT IS ALSO THE FIRST SHOW

OF OUR SIXTH SEASON, SO

THANKS FOR JOINING US

THROUGHOUT THE YEARS.

> FIRST, IT IS A MAJOR

SCANDAL IN BRITAIN.

MUSLIM RAPE GANGS.

YOU MAY NOT HAVE HEARD

MUCH ABOUT IT BECAUSE IT

HAS BEEN COVERED UP BY THE

MEDIA AND THE GOVERNMENT.

BUT IT IS A SHOCKING

STORY.

DALE HURD BRINGS US THIS

INCREDIBLE STORY FROM

LONDON.

Reporter: SOME

SCANDALS ARE SO MASSIVE

THAT THEY ARE SIMPLY HARD

TO BELIEVE.

BUT THIS ONE IS TRUE.

AS MANY AS ONE MILLION

WHITE ENGLISH CHILDREN MAY

HAVE BEEN THE VICTIMS OF

MUSLIM RAPE GANGS.

BETTER KNOWN AS "GROOMING

GANGS."

IN TOWNS UP AND DOWN GREAT

BRITAIN.

POLICY ANALYST GEORGE

IGLER.

WHEN YOU ENCOUNTER AN

ISSUE THAT IS SO

UNBELIEVABLE, SO OUTSIDE

YOUR FRAME OF REFERENCE

AND UNDERSTANDING, THE

IMMEDIATE HUMAN REACTION

IS JUST NOT WANTING TO

BELIEVE IT AT ALL.

Reporter: PERHAPS

EVEN HARDER TO BELIEVE IS

WHILE THERE HAVE BEEN

PROSECUTIONS, BRITISH

AUTHORITIES HAVE STILL NOT

STOPPED THIS CRIMINAL

ACTIVITY.

THERE IS A PARTICULAR

PROBLEM INVOLVING

PAKISTANI-HERITAGE MEN WHO

TARGET YOUNG, VULNERABLE,

WHITE ENGLISH WORDS.

NOT MY WORDS, BUT A MEMBER

OF PARLIAMENT WHO SAID

THEY CALL THEM,

QUOTE,"EASY MEAT."

HERE ON THE FACTS:

CALCULATIONS BASED ON

CONVICTIONS SO THAT A

BRITISH MUSLIM MALE IS 170

TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE

PART OF A SEX GROOMING

GANG THAN A NON-MUSLIM.

AND THERE ARE NO RECORDED

INSTANCES OF NON-MUSLIMS

DOING THIS TO MUSLIM GIRLS

AS PART OF A CRIMINAL

ENTERPRISE.

IN ONE LOCAL JURISDICTION,

WAS ESTIMATED THAT SIX OUT

OF SEVEN MUSLIM MALES

EITHER KNEW ABOUT OR WERE

PART OF A GROOMING GANG.

WHAT YOU DO NOT HAVE IS

ANY EXAMPLE OF NON-MUSLIM

MEN TARGETING MUSLIM GIRLS

FOR THIS ORGANIZED FORM OF

ABUSE.

SO THE ARGUMENT THAT THIS

CRIME EXISTS EVERYWHERE IS

NOT ONLY FALSE, BUT IS

BEING DELIBERATELY

CULTIVATED BY THE MEDIA

AND BY THE GOVERNMENT'S

INQUIRY THAT IS KICKING

THE CAN DOWN THE ROWS.

Reporter: THE

GROOMING GANGS HAVE BEEN

TRACED BACK TO THE LATE

1980s.

AT RISK, WHITE ENGLISH

GIRLS, OFTEN FROM BROKEN BROKEN

HOMES, AND SOME AS YOUNG

AT NINE YEARS OLD WERE

GROOMED BY MUSLIM BOYS

CALLED ROMEOS.

AND BY GROUPS OF MUSLIM

MEN WHO HUNG AROUND SCHOOL

GATES.

THE PLAN WAS TO MAKE THE

GIRL FEEL IMPORTANT.

SHE WAS GIVEN GIFTS AND

DRUGS, BUT SHE WAS BEING

GROOMED TO BE A

DRUG-ADDICTED PROSTITUTE.

AND THEN THE GIRLS WERE

THREATENED WITH DEATH IF

THEY TRIED TO FLEE.

IT IS NOT JUST SEXUAL

ABUSE.

IT IS UNSPEAKABLE LEVELS

OF VIOLENCE.

VICTIMS BEING RAPED WITH

KNIVES.

VICTIMS BEING RAPED WITH

BOTTLES.

VICTIMS HAVING THEIR

TONGUE NAILED TO TABLES.

THESE ARE SOMETIMES GIRLS

WHO HAVE BEEN PICKED UP

FROM CHILDREN'S HOMES ON A

FRIDAY, ARE BEING RAPED

DURING THE COURSE OF THE

WEEKEND BY HUNDREDS OF

MEN, AND THEN RETURNED

WITH BLEEDING GROINS BACK

TO THE CHILDREN'S HOMES ON

A MANAGEMEN MONDAY MORNING, AND THEY

DON'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT

IT.

Reporter: CHRISTINE'S

GOD DAUGHTER WAS PREYED ON

BY THE GROOMING GANGS.

THEY PULLED HER OVER

AND TRIED TO GET HER IN

THE CAR.

THEY WERE TALKING TO HER.

SAYING, WE'LL TAKE YOU

HERE, WE'LL TAKE YOU

THERE.

Reporter: ARE YOU

SAYING THAT THE

AUTHORITIES MAKE IT SOUND

LIKE IT IS THE ENGLISH

GIRL'S FAULT?

YES.

OR THE PARENTS' FAULT.

IT IS YOUR CONTROL BECAUSE

YOU HAVEN'T GOT CONTROL OF

YOUR CHILD.

IF YOU'RE A YOUNG

ENGLISH GIRL BETWEEN THE

AGES OF NINE AND 14, AND

YOU FIND YOURSELF WITH THE

PER VALUATIONPERVERSIONS OF MUSLIM MEN,

YOU'RE IN A COUNTRY THAT

HAS NO RULES AT ALL.

Reporter: STEVEN WAS

JUST A YOUNG BOY IN THE

TOWN OF LUTEN WHEN HE

LEARNED A FAMILY MEMBER

HAD BEEN VICTIMIZED BY A

GROOMING GANG.

MY COUSIN WAS RAPED AND

SHE WAS FOUND NAKED,

RUNNING FROM THE MUSLIM

COMMUNITY.

AND SHE WAS AGE 13.

AND THEY ALL SAID SHE WAS

A DRUG ADDICT.

SHE WAS A DRUG ADDICT

BECAUSE THEY GOT HER

HOOKED ON DRUGS AFTER

RAPING HER.

Reporter: OTHERS

POINT OUT THAT THE QURAN

ENCOURAGES MUSLIMS TO TAKE

ENEMY WOMEN AS SEX SLAVES,

AND THAT MUHAMMAD HAD SEX

WITH A NINE-YEAR-OLD WIFE.

ISIS DEFENDS SEXUAL

SLAVERY AS ISLAMIC, SAYING

"IN SLAVING THE FAMILIES

OF THE INFEDELS IS A

FIRMLY CONCRETE ASPECT OF

SHAR'IA OR ISLAMIC."

THE REASON THE CRIMES WERE

COVERED UP WAS POLITICAL

CORRECTNESS.

NO ONE WANTED TO BE CALLED

A RAPIST.

THE DEFINITIVE BOOK ON

THIS SCANDAL IS "EASY

MEAT," BY PETER

McLOUGHLIN.

HE DECLINED AN ONCAMERA

INTERVIEW FOR SAFETY

REASONS.

CHILD CARE PROFESSIONALS

USED POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

AS AN O MERTA, A CODE OF

SILENCE, CONCERNING WHAT

THE PUBLIC WAS ALLOWED TO

KNOW.

THIS IS AN INDICATION

THAT THE FACT THAT THIS

ACCATION OF RACISM IS

POTENTIALLY THE MOST

POWERFUL POLITICAL WEAPON

KNOWN TO MAN.

THEY SAY IT IS ALSO AN

EXAMPLE OF WHAT CAN HAPPEN

IN A COUNTRY OF 6E

MILLION60 MILLIONWHERE THE PRESS JUST

REFUSES TO REPORT, WHERE

ALL OF THESE AGENCIES

FAIL, FAIL TO MERELY

DISCUSS WHAT IS GOING ON,

AND IT IS ONLY GOING TO

GET WORSE FOR THIS REASON.

Reporter: THE COVERUP

WAS EVENTUALLY EXPOSED,

YET THE GROOMING GANGS

CONTINUE TO OPERATE.

ONE VICTIM TOLD A BRITISH

NEWSPAPER, NOTHING HAS

CHANGED, NOT IN THE

SLIGHTEST.

IT IS STILL THE SAME SCALE

AS BEFORE.

THEY GET SEXUAL KICKS

OUT OF RUINING THE MOST

PRECIOUS POSSESSION THAT

THOSE PEOPLE HAVE, THEIR

DAUGHTERS.

Reporter: STEVEN

LENNON WARNED THERE WILL

BE REPERCUSSIONS.

THERE WILL BE A LOT OF

PROBLEMS AT THE HANDS OF

OUR LEADERS.

AND THERE WILL COME A TIME

WHEN THEY REALIZE WHAT

THEY HAVE DONE.

THEY HAVE SOLD US OUT.

THEY DESTROYED OUR NATION.

THEY DESTROYED OUR

CULTURE.

Chris: BACK HERE IN

THE MIDDLE EAST, ACCORDING

TO AN INVESTIGATION BY THE

ASSOCIATED PRESS, ISIS

BURIED THOUSANDS OF BINDZ

APEOPLEIN MASS GRAVES.

72 GRAVES HAVE BEEN

LOCATED.

THE KNOWN NUMBER OF

VICTIMS IS ANYWHERE FROM

5,000 TO MORE THAN 15,000.

ACTIVISTS BELIEVE THERE

ARE HUNDREDS OF OTHER MASS

GRAVES TO BE FOUND.

THEY SAY THEY CAN ONLY BE

EXPLORED WHEN THE FIGHTING

STOPS.

CBN REPORTED ON THE MASS

GRAVES IN MARCH.

CHUCK HOLTON REPORTED

THERE WERE MORE MASS

GRAVES IN SINJAR THAN

THERE ARE FAMILIES LIVING

THERE.

ISIS SPOKESMAN ABU

AL-ADNANI WAS KILLED

WHILE OVERSEEING MISSIONS.

THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT BLOW

TO THE TERRORIST GROUP.

ADNANI LAID OUT THE

BLUEPRINT FOR THE ISIS

ATTACKS IN ORLANDO AND

PARIS.

IN 2014, HE OFFICIALLY

DECLARED THE ESTABLISHMENT

OF A CALIPHATE, AND CALLED

ON ALL MUSLIMS TO KILL

NON-MUSLIMS.

SO FAR THE GROUP HAS LOST

ITS STRONGHOLDS IN

FALLUJAH AND RAMADI AND IS

ON RETREAT IN IRAQ AND

SYRIA.

IRAN HAS DEPLOYED A

RUSSIAN MISSILE DEFENSE

SYSTEM AT ITS UNDERGROUND

NUCLEAR FACILITY.

STATE TV SHOWED TRUCKS

ARRIVING AT THE LOCATION

WITH MISSILE LAUNCHES

BEING AIMED TOWARDS THE

SKY.

BUT IRAN DIDN'T SAY IF THE

S-300 SYSTEM IS FULLY

OPERATIONAL.

RUSSIA BEGAN DELIVERING

THE SYSTEM TO IRAN EARLIER

THIS YEAR UNDER A CONTRACT

SIGNED IN 2007.

THE DELIVERY HAS BEEN HELD

UP BY INTERNATIONAL

SANCTIONS OVER IRAN'S

NUCLEAR PROGRAM.

THOSE SANCTIONS HAVE NOW

BEEN LIFTED.

CRITICS SAY IT IS MORE

PROOF THAT IRAN PLANS TO

BUILD NUCLEAR WEAPONS,

EVEN THOUGH IRAN DENIES

IT.

> COMING UP, SEE THE

DESERT BLOOM AND AN

ANCIENT PLANT REVISED IN

ISRAEL, PERHAPS FOR THE

FIRST TIME IN 1500 YEARS,

Chris: WELCOME BACK

TO "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

THE BIBLE SPEAKS OF THE

BOMB OF GILLIAD.

IT WAS USED IN MEDICINE

AND COSMETICS, AND EVEN TO

WORSHIP IN THE JEWISH

TEMPLE.

NOW A MODERN DAY ISRAELI

FARMER MER I IS REVIVING THAT

BIBLICAL AGRICULTURE,

ALONG WITH FRANKINCENSE

AND MYRRH.

MEET GUY EICK,x

MISSIONARY ANDRMER, AND

POSS PROVID OF

PL NEEDED FOR FUTURE

TH TEMPLE.

THIS IS TO MAKE THE

AGRICULTURE AND THEN TO

MAKE AN INDUSTRY OUT OF

IT.

ERLIC IS STILL IN THE

EARLY STAGES, BUT HE IS

TURNING GREEN ON A TRACT

OF LAND BETWEEN THE DEAD

SEA AND JERICHO.

THIS IS BIBLICAL AND

MEDICAL.

THERE ARE VERY INTERESTING

PLANTS IN MY COLLECTION.

THEY HAVE A HUGE POTENTIAL

TO BENEFIT HUMANITY.

IT STARTED WITH THE

BALAMONE TREE.

FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS,

THE HEBREW ANCIENT FARMERS

AT THE DEAD SEA WERE THE

ONLY ONES KNOWN TO

CULTIVATE THIS EXOTIC

PLANT, USING IT FOR

MEDICINAL AND COSMETIC

PURPOSES.

HE IS REVIVING THAT TRADE

AND MORE.

THEY KNEW HOW TO MAKE

OUT OF IT ONE OF THE MOST

IMPORTANT MEDICATIONS OF

THE CENTURY.

IT WAS CONSIDERED TO BE

THE BEST PERFUME IN THE

ROMAN EMPIRE.

IT IS WAS THE INCENSE OF

THE HOLY TEMPLE.

AND IT IS AN ANOINTING OIL

OF JESUS.

AND THEN IT DISAPPEARED,

TOGETHER WITH THE JEWISH

PEOPLE.

HE GOT HIS FIRST PLANT

FROM A CHUTE THAT WAS

SMUGGLED BY A GERMAN

SCIENTIST OUT OF SADE RAIB

ANSAUDIARABIA.

WE BELIEVE IN THE

FUTURE IT WILL BECOME A

MEDICINE.

BEFORE IT WILL BE A

MEDICINE, IT WILL BE A

PHARMACEUTICAL AND A

COSMETIC.

IT MIGHT SERVE AS THE

INCENSE OF THE TEMPLE.

ERLIC HAS SIX ACRES OF

THE TREES SO FAR, AND

ANOTHER 5,000 PLANTS READY

TO BE PLANTED.

RIGHT NOW I'M THE ONLY

INDIVIDUAL TO FARM THIS.

THE REVIN FROM THE

BARK, THE BERRIES AND THE

LEAVES FROM THE BALM OF

GILLIAD CAN ALL BE USED.

AND HE ALSO GROWS

FRANKINCENSE ON HIS

PLANTATION.

THIS IS MY SECOND BABY.

I STARTED WITH THE VISION

OF BRINGING BACK THE BALM

OF GILOF GILLIAD BACK TO THE

DEAD SEA.

THERE ARE MORE THAN 20

VARIETIES OF FRANKINCENSE,

BUT THIS IS THE ONE FROM

THE BIBLE, AND IT IS

CONSIDERED AN ENDANGERED

SPECIES.

THIS IS THE

FRANKINCENSE OF THE HOLY

TEMPLE.

NOW, THERE IS NO

AGRICULTURE FOR THIS TREE.

THIS TREE ONLY GROWS IN

DIFFERENT COUNTRIES IN

AFRICA.

AND SINCE THERE IS SUCH A

BIG DEMAND FOR THIS, THERE

IS A LOT OF USING OF THE

PLANTER.

AND ERLIC IS ALSO

GROWING MYRRH, AND THERE

MAY BE A CONNECTION TO THE

GIFTS THE MAJI BROUGHT

JESUS AT HIS BIRTH.

THE ONLY WAY TO

INTRODUCE MYSELF IS AS THE

MAJI.

WE GIVE FRANKINCENSE AND

MYRRH AND GOLD.

THIS WAS MORE PRECIOUS

THAN GOLD.

THIS IS THE DIAMOND OF THE

MEDICAL PLANTS.

ERLIC, WHO DESCRIBES

HIMSELF AS A MAN OF FAITH,

BUT NOT RELIGIOUS, IS ALSO

GROWING A NUMBER OF OTHER

PLANTS NEEDED TO MAKE THE

INCENSE FOR THE TEMPLE.

THAT HAS CAUGHT THE

ATTENTION OF SOME

RELIGIOUS JEWS WHO WOULD

LIKE TO SEE A THIRD TEMPLE

BUILT IN ISRAEL.

THEY WANT TO BUILD A

THIRD TEMPLE.

I SAID, I WOULD BE MORE

THAN HAPPY TO SUPPLY THE

INCENSE FOR THE TEMPLE.

I TOLD HIM THAT I'M NOT

GOING TO BUILD HIM A

TEMPLE.

BUT DESPITE HIS

EXCITEMENT OVER HIS TEAM

OF PLANTS, ERLIC HAS ALSO

HAD SOME BIG CHALLENGES.

HIS PLANTATION IS IN

BIBLICAL JUDEA, KNOWN TO

THE WORLD AS THE WEST

BANK, AND THAT HAS SCARED

OFF AN AMERICAN COMPANY

WHO PARTNERED WITH ERLIC

FOR YEARS.

ONE REASON: BACKLASH FROM

B.D.S., THE BOYCOTT,

DIVESTMENT, AND SANCTIONS

MOVEMENT.

I'M SORRY THAT THE

COMPANY SURRENDERED TO

THIS WICKED MOVEMENT.

BUT WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT

IT?

I CAN ONLY FIGHT IT BY

SUCCEEDING WITHOUT THEM.

HE HAS HAD TO DISMISS

HIS ISRAELI-PALESTINI

WORKERS AND RELY ON

VOLUNTEERS AND FRIENDS,

TWO SPENT WHO SPENT A WEEK HERE

PULLING WEEDS, AMONG OTHER

THINGS.

IF THIS IS WHATE CAN

MAKE THE WORLD BETTER,

THIS IS WHAT WE'LL DO.

HIS GOAL IS TO START A

RESEARCH PLAN FOR THE

MEDICAL PLANTS, AS HE

SAYS, TO MAKE THE DESERT

BLOOM.

CBN NEWS, JERUSALEM.

Chris: UP NEGATIVES,

Chris: WELCOME BACK

TO "JERUSALEM DATELINE."

EVERY SUMMER THOUSANDS OF

JEWS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

COME TO RESETTLE IN

ISRAEL.

IT IS A TOUGH TRANSITION,

ESPECIALLY FROM WESTERN

NATIONS, SO WHY DO THEY DO

IT?

HERE IS A STORY ABOUT ONE

NEW IMMIGRANT FAMILY FROM

AMERICA, AND SEVERAL OTHER

NEWCOMERS FROM THE U.S.

AND CANADA.

IT IS CALLED ALIAH, HEBREW

FOR GOING UP, OR

IMMIGRATING TO ISRAEL.

THAT'S WHAT NEIL AND HIS

FAMILY DID AFTER HE

COMPLETED 20 YEARS IN THE

U.S. NAVY.

THE HIGHEST POSITION I

HAD WAS THE COMMANDING

OFFICER OF THE U.S. WAR

SHIP.

IT WAS AN AMPHIBIOUS SHIP,

ABOUT 200 METRES LONG.

Chris: HE AND HIS

WIFE AND FOUR YOUNG

CHILDREN LIVE IN THIS

NEIGHBORHOOD OF JERUSALEM.

THEY SAY THEY'RE HOME.

HE SPENT HIS SUMMER

ACCOMPANYING HIS

FOUR-YEAR-OLD TWINS TO

SCHOOL ON THE PUBLIC BUS

BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE A

CAR -- WELL, SORT OF.

WE DO HAVE A CAR.

IT HAS FOUR WHEELS AND ONE

SEAT.

ONLY ONE PERSON CAN SIT IN

IT, AND THAT'S YUDI, WHO

IS FIVE MONTHS OLD.

IT IS A STROLLER.

THAT'S OUR CAR.

IT HOLDS EVERYTHING WE

NEED, IF WE NEED TO GO

SHOPPING.

WE CAN TAKE IT EVERYWHERE,

EVEN UP STEPS.

Chris: ABOUT EIGHT

YEARS AGO, BRIN'S LIFE

TOOK ON MAJOR CHANGES.

HE BECAME MORE RELIGIOUS,

MET SHOSHANA AND MARRIED.

THEY KNEW THEY WOULD COME

TO ISRAEL AT SOME POINT,

BUT JUST NOT WHEN.

WE DIDN'T KNOW IF WE

WOULD COME TO ISRAEL IN 20

YEARS OR 30 YEARS.

IF I STAYED 30 YEARS, WE

WOULD MAKE A LOT MORE

MONEY, BUT THE TRADE OFF,

THIS IS OUR HOME.

AND OUR CHILDREN WOULD

LEARN THE LANGUAGE BETTER

AT THE AGES OF 5 AND 3

1/2, AND OUR TWINS WERE

FOUR, THAN LATER.

I'M A LITTLE ASTOUNDED HOW

LITTER IS ACCEPTED AND

APPLAUDED, IT APPEARS TO

ME.

SO I ORGANIZED A WEEKLY

CLEANING PROJECT AND WE DO

THAT EVERY FRIDAY.

Chris: HE GOT THE

IDEA FROM THE TIME HE WAS

THE EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF A

SHIP.

 THE IDEA OF DOING IT

CAME FROM MY OLD SHIP.

I'M HOPING THIS WILL BE A

HABIT THAT STAYS AND CAN

REALLY CLEAN THIS PLACE

UP.

WE GO FROM JUST PICKING

LITTER TO MAYBE ACTUALLY

CLEANING.

THOSE STONES COULD LOOK

LIKE CLEAN STONE, AS

OPPOSED TO STONE WITH

WEEDS HERE AND DIRT HERE.

NOW I HAVE TO SAY, BYPASS

THE DIRT AND LET'S PICK UP

THE SPOON.

Chris: SO WHY WOULD

THEY GIVE UP LIFE IN

AMERICA?

I CAN'T TELL YOU WHY

SOME PEOPLE WOULD MOVE,

BUT I CAN TELL YOU WHY WE

DID.

IT IS THE HOPE.

IT SAYS AS LONG AS THE

HEART OF THE JEW BEATS,

THIS 2,000 YEAR DREAM IS

FINALLY BEING REALIZED.

THE MISSION OF THE

ORGANIZATION IS TO

FACILITATE ANY INDIVIDUAL

WHO HAS THIS DREAM, WHO

HAS THIS YEARNING, WHO

WANTS TO MOVE AND

CONTRIBUTE TO THE ISRAELI

SOCIETY.

Chris: THIS RABBI AND

HIS ORGANIZATION HELPED

MAKE THE DREAM BECOME A

REALITY FOR BRIN AND HIS

FAMILY.

WE HAVE THIS MODERNDAY

MIRACLE OF THE STATE OF

ISRAEL.

IT IS FANCY STUFF.

2,000 YEARS OF WANDERING

AND DREAMING, ALL OF A

SUDDEN YOU CAN GET ON A

PLANE AND CHANGE YOUR

STATUS AND BECOME A

CITIZEN OF THIS COUNTRY.

IT IS INCREDIBLE.

Chris: 223 IMMIGRANTS

ARRIVED AFTER BRIN,

INCLUDING YOUNG PEOPLE WHO

CAME TO JOIN THE ISRAEL

DEFENSE STEAM.

TEAM.

ONE OF WHICH IS REBECCA,

FROM BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.

I COULDN'T SEE MYSELF

SPENDING THE REST OF MY

LIFE IN ANY OTHER PLACE.

SO I'M HERE.

I.D.F. SERVICES IS PART OF

WHAT MAKES ISRAEL SUCH A

UNITED COUNTRY, AND WHAT

MAKES EVERYONE FEEL LIKE

IT IS THEIR OWN.

SO I WANTED TO CONTRIBUTE

IN THAT WAY.

Chris: DIFFERENT

REASONS BROUGHT THESE

NEWCOMERS TO ISRAEL.

IT IS SOMETHING I'VE

DREAMED ABOUT SINCE I WAS

SEVEN YEARS OLD.

I THINK ISRAEL HAS A RIGHT

TO BE A COUNTRY.

I WENT TO POLAND AND

SAW THE CONCENTRATION

CAMPS AND THE GHETTOS, AND

IT BECAME SO MUCH MORE

REAL TO ME.

MY PURPOSE FOR COMING TO

THE ARMY IS I WANT TO

HELP.

THERE IS A PLACE THAT

HELPS PEOPLE.

Chris: BUT TAMMY AND

GENE BERMAN, FROM

WAINGTON, D.C., WHO

DECIDED TO RETIRE HERE,

SUMMED UP THE REASON FOR

COMING HOME.

IT IS OUR DESTINY.

WE'RE JEWISH.

AMERICA IS A FANTASTIC

COUNTRY, I LOVE IT, BUT

WE'RE VISITORS THERE.

WE BELONG HERE.

Chris: COMING UP, IT

HAS BEEN MORE THAN A

DECADE SINCE THE

BLOCKBUSTER "THE PASSION

OF THE CHRIST."

NOW SEE WHAT MEL GIBSON

HAS IN MIND FOR THE

SEQUEL.

Chris: WELCOME BACK.

SUPERSTAR ACTOR MEL GIBSON

IS TALKING ABOUT A SEQUEL

TO HIS 2004 BLOCKBUSTER,

"THE PASSION OF THE

CHRIST" HE SPOK." HE SPOKE WITH

GREG LAURIE IN ANAHEIM,

CALIFORNIA.

HE SAID THE MOVIE FOCUSES

ON WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE

CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS AS

SHOWN IN "THE PASSION."

HE SAID IT WOULD BE A

MAJOR PROJECT.

OF COURSE, THAT IS A

HUGE UNDERTAKING.

IT'S NOT "THE PASSION 2."

IT'S CALLED "THE

RESURRECTION."

THAT'S RIGHT.

[APPLAUSE]

OF COURSE, THAT'S A

VERY BIG SUBJECT.

YES.

AND IT NEEDS TO BE

LOOKED AT BECAUSE WE DON'T

WANT TO JUST DO A SIMPLE

RENDERING OF IT.

I MEAN, WE CAN ALL READ

WHAT HAPPENED, BUT IN

ORDER TO REALLY EXPERIENCE

IT AND EXPLORE PROBABLY

DEEPER MEANINGS OF WHAT IT

IS ABOUT, IT IS GOING TO

TAKE SOME DOING.

AND RANDALL WALLACE IS UP

TO THE TASK.

Chris: RANDALL

WALLACE IS THE

AWARD-WINNING FILM-MAKER

WHO WROTE "BRAVE HEART."

> THAT'S IT FOR THIS

EDITION OF "JERUSALEM

DATELINE."
