> THIS WEEK ON JERUSALEM

DATELINE. A US CONGRESSWOMAN

COMES BACK WITH A MESSAGE.

WE HAVE TO END THESE

DESTRUCTIVE REGIME WORLD

POLICIES AND TAKE A STAND.

THIS MAY NOT BE THE

CAPITOL

BUT MAY FIND OUT THE PROPHECY.

HELLO, WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF JERUSALEM

DATELINE,

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL. ACCORDING

TO NEWS REPORTS FOLLOWING THE

RECENT MEETING BETWEEN PRIME

MINISTER BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

AND THE PEACE DEAL THAT WILL

BRING IN OTHER COUNTRIES IN

THE AREAS AS WELL. THE ONE

THING THE KEY THE ISRAELI

LEADER THINKS IT WON'T CHANGE

THE JEWISH STATE.

THE MEETING TOOK PLACE IN

JORDAN.

THE PURPOSE OF THE MEETIN

WAS

A REGIONAL PEACE PLAN BASED

ON

THE PART OF THE 2002 ARAB

PEACE INITIATIVE THAT WOULD

MAKE JERUSALEM THE CAPITAL OF

TWO STATES AND TURNING OVER

THE WEST BANK OF THE

PALESTINIANS RECOGNIZE IT AS

A

JEWISH STATE.

THE MINISTER OF PUBLIC

DIPLOMACY TOLD CBN NEWS HE

DOESN'T BELIEVE PALESTINIANS

WOULD EVER RECOGNIZE ISRAEL

AS A JEWISH STATE.

ACORDING TO THE REPORT,

NETANYAHU REJECTED THE OFFER

BECAUSE HE DID NOT BELIEVE

THE

GOVERNMENT WOULD ACCEPT IT.

LAST WEEK IN THE PRESS

CONFENCE, BOTH PRIME

MINISTER NETANYAHU AND

PRESIDENT TRUMP OFFERED A

REGIONAL PLAN MIGHT BE THE

BEST OPPORTUNITY FOR THE

ISRAELI PALESTINIACONFLICT

WITHOUT OFFERING DETAILS.

THEY

SAID THEY DON'T HAVE A STATE

BECAUSE THEY REJECTED

PREVIOUS

OFFERS FOR A REASON.

THE PALESTINIANS HAVE A

WORLD RECORD OF A PEOPLE THAT

HAVE BEEN OFFERED A STATE AND

TURNED IT DOWN MOST OFTE

WITH

VIOLENCE. THEY TURNED IT DOWN

NOT BECAUSE OF THE BORDERS OR

SETTLEMENT OR FOR RUSALEM,

THEY TURN IT DOWN FOR ONE

REASON EVERY SINGLE TIME.

THAT IS THE PRICE THEY HAVE

TO

PAY FOR THE PALESTINIAN STATE

IS RECOGNIZING THE JEWISH

STATE.

THE ISRAELI PROCEDURE

RECOGNIZED BUT DECLINED TO

COMMENT ON THE STORY AND SAY

IT MAYBE TIME TO EMBARRASS

NETANYAHU AS RELATIONS WITH

THE U.S. ARE WARMING.

A REGIONAL PEACE AGREEMENT

WOULD BE A DREAM FOR THE

MIDDLE EAST BUT INSIDE SYRIA

IT HAS BEEN A NIGHTMARE.

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS HAVE

DIED AND MILLIONS OF

DISPLACED

IN THE COUNTRY.

ONCONGRESSWOMAN WHO SERVED

IN THE REGION RETURNED TO

ASSESS THE SITUATION

FIRSTHAND. ABIGAIL ROBERTSON

WAS TOLD WHY SHE DECIDED TO

MAKE THIS TRIP.

CONGRESSWOMAN IS NO

STRANGER TO WAR ZONES.

THE DESTRUCTION OF THE

SYRIAN PEOPLE HAS BEEN SO

GREAT AND WEIGHED HEAVILY

UPON

MY HEART FOR A LONG TIME.

SHE DEPLOYED TWICE TO THE

MIDDLE EAST.

EXPERIENCES THAT LED HER TO

SYRIA FOR A FIRSTHAND LOOK AT

THE SITUATION.

I WANTED TO GO THERE

PERSONALLY.

I WANT EXPRESS IN SOME

SMALL MINUTE WAY THE LOVE AND

THE CARE AND THE ALOHA!

SPIRIT

THAT THE PEOPLE OF HAWAI'I

SHARE WITH THE SYRIAN PEOPLE.

THAT THE PEOPLE OF OUR

COUNTRY

HAVE FOR THE SYRIAN PEOPLE.

SINCE RETURNING HOME,

CONGRESSMAN HAS HAD A

DIFFICULT TIME SHARING WHAT

SHE WITNESSED OVERSEAS WITH

COLLEAGUES IN BOTH PARTIES.

RATHER THAN HAVING THIS

SUBSTANTIVE DEBATE, THEY ARE

FOCUSING ON THINGS THAT ARE

IRRELEVANT OR EVEN NOT TRUE.

THEY WANT TO KNOW WHO PAID

FOR THE TRIP. ALTHOUGH SHE

INSIST THE HOUSE ETHICS

COMMITTEE APPROVED IT, AND

WHY

E MET WITH SYRIAN PRESIDENT

BASHAR AN ASSAD.

ANY PATHWAY FOR PEACE IS

GOING

TO GO THROUGH HIM.

THEY ARE DISGUSTED BY

MEETING WITH THE LEADER WHO

CAUSED THOUSANDS OF DEATHS OF

HIS OWN PEOPLE. SHE SAYS SHE

DIDN'T HAVE ORIGINALLY

PLANNED

TO MEET WITH AN ASSAD.

WE TALKED ABOUT HOW WE ARE

GOING TO BRING REFUGEES BACK

TO SYRIA AND HOW THEY WILL BE

ABLE TO RETURN HOME.

WE TALKED ABOUT THE HISTORY

OF

SYRIA AS A HOLISTIC CIY.

SHE SAYS THEY FOCUSED ON

ELIMINATING ISIS AND AL QAIDA.

WE TOOK A STAND FOR PEACE.

SHE CRITICIZED THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION STRATEGY OF

ARMING REBEL GROUPS.

MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT AWARE

OF THE FACT THAT SINCE 2011

OUR GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN

PROVIDING MONEY, WEAPONS AND

OTHER TYPES OF SUPPORT BOTH

DIRECTLY AND INDIRECTLY TO

ARMED MILITANT GROUPS WHO ARE

WORKING WITH AN ALLY WITH

TERRORIST GROUPS LIKE AL

QAIDA

IN THIS EFFORT TO OVERTHROW

THE SYRIAN GOVERNMENT.

GABBERT INTRUCED THE

BIPARTISAN TERRORIST ACT AND

WOULD BE THE FIRST TO MEET

WITH THEN PRESIDENT TRUMP

ABOUT THE SYRIAN CONFLICT.

I TALKED TO HIM ABOUT

STOPPING THE NEED TO

SUPPORTING THIS WAR AGAINST

SYRIA AND THAT IT'S

COUNTERPRODUCTIVE BECAUSE

IT'S

ACTUALLY WORKING TO

STRENGTHEN

GROUPS LIKE AL-QAIDA AND ISIS

WHO WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE

RKING TO DEFEATING.

WE SHOULD AS A COUNTRY DO

WHAT I TAKES TO BE ABLE TO

HELP THOSE GET OUT OF THE

SITUATION WHERE THEY ARE

EXPERIENCING A GENOCIDE AND

THAT'S WHERE OUR REFUGEE

POLICY CAN AND SHOULD BE

FOCUSED HELP THOSE WHO ARE

SUFFERING, TO HELP THOSE WHO

ARE THE DIRECT TARGETS OF

THIS

GENOCIDE THAT IS BEING

EXECUTED BY GROUPS LIKE ISIS

AND AL-QAIDA.

MANY SYRIAN CHRISTIANS

DON'T WANT TO LEAVE THE

COUNTRY THE DESPITE DIRECT

ATTACKS.

IT'S HOME.

REVEREND WAS BOMBED FOUR

TIMES BUT THROUGH IT ALL THEY

HAVE MANAGED TO KEEP OPEN AND

OPERATING FOR THE COMMUNITY.

THIS IS CALLED BY MILITANT

THEY ARE CONCERNED ABOUT

ANOTHEVERNMENT COMING

INTO

POWER WHERE THEY HAVE NO

RIGHTS AND WHERE THEY WILL BE

ATTACKED.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO THE

PEOPLE THAT THEIR COUNTRY

REMAIN A PLURISTIC SECULAR

SOCIETY AND FRANKLY ONE THAT

THEY HOPE WILL CONTINUE TO BE

A MODEL FOR COUNTRIES

ESPECIALLY AROUND THE MIDDLE

EASTTHAT DON'T HAVE THAT

FREEDOM OF RELIGION.

CONGRESSWOMAN GABBERT SAYS

DESPITE ALL THE DESTRUCTION

SHE SAW, THE PEOPLE OF SYRIA

GIVE HER GREAT HOPE FOR THE

COUNTRY'S FUTURE.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL HILL.

ABIGAIL ROBINSON, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, TEL AVIV IS

> WELCOME BACK. PRESIDENT

TRUMP HAS PLANNED TO MOVE TEL

AVIV IN A MOVEMENT.

ASCOTT ROSS FOUND T, THE

CITY ALSO FULFILLS BIBLICAL

PROPCY.

SITUATED ON THE SHORES OF

THE MEDITERRANEAN, TEL AVIV

COULD BE DEBED AS

ISRAEL'S

W YORK CITY.

IN JUST OVER 100 YEARS HAS

BECOME ONE THE WORLD'S

LEADING START UP CITY.

SINCE 1909 WAS ESTABLISHED

HERE TO SPEAK THE JEWISH

LANGUAGE. THE IDEAL WAS

REALIZE THE DREAMS, THE

HOPES,

THE PROPHECIES OF ALL OF OUR

PROPHETS.

THE MAIN THING WITH THE

JEWISH

PEOPLE IS WE KEEP DREAMING

THE

SAME DREAM THROUGH THE

CENTURIE

WHO WERE THE PEOPLE WHO

FOUNDED TEL AVIV?

66 JEWISH FAMILS IN THE

CITY OF JABA.

THE CITY STRUGGLING THROUGH

JAFA AND ESTABLISHING THE

JEWISH NEIGHBORHOOD. WE PAID

IN GOLD FOR EVERY INCH HERE

OF

ISRAEL.

ISAAC DRAWER IS THE

EDUCATION MANAGER OF THE

INDEPENDENT HALL WHERE IT

DECLARED IT'STEHOOD AND

THE FOUNDING FATHERS SIGNED

THE DECLARATION OF

INDEPENDENCE.

THIS IS THE PLACE WHERE IT

WAS BORN BUT ALSO THE HOME OF

THE FOUNDER OF TEL AVIV AND

IN

THE CITY IN THE BOOK OF

EZEKIEL WHO LIVED IN A PLACE

CALLED TEL AVIV.

IN 1950, TEL AVIV AND JAFA

FORMED JAFA AND TODAY IT'S

THE

LARGEST CITY.

TEL AVIV IS NOT THE CAPITOL

OF

ISRAEL AND THTEL AVIV

PEOPLE.

IN CONTRAST, IT'S

JERUSALEM.

JERUSALEM IS A MORE POLITICAL

ENVIRONMENT.

THIS IS CARRYING THE HOLINESS

OF JERUSALEM.

TEL AVIV DOES NOT CARRY ALL

OF

THIS HISTORY.

TEL AVIV IS VERY SPECIAL IN A

VERY VERY DIFFERENT WAY.

ISRAEL'S UNDER IN THE

MIDST OF FULFILLING IT'S

CREATIVENESS IS.

THERE IS VENTURE CAPITAL

THAT IS BEING INVESTED IN

ISRAEL WHICH IS THE HIGHEST

PER CAPITA IN THE WORLD AND

COMBINED WITH THE CULTURE AND

WITH ISRAEL'S CIRCUMSTANCES

HAS MADE TELIV WHAT IT IS

TODAY, ESSENTIALLY THE

SILICON

VALLEY OF THE WORLD.

I THNK THE WHOLE VENTURE

OF ISRAEL IS A START UP

VENTURE. YOCAN SEE THIS

MIRACLE ARND US TODAY.

TEL AVIV IS THE THIRD

LARGEST ECONOMY IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

IT AFFECTS OUR LIVES

EVERYDAY. I WILLGIVE YOU AN

EXAMPLE. YESTERDAY I WAS

TELVIV IS THE CENTER OF

ISRAEL OF BUSINESS, OF LIFE,

AROUND THE WORLD.

COMING UP, SEE HOW ONE

WELCOME BACK.

RECENTLY NIKKI HALEY, THE US

AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED

NATIONS MADE A BREAK FOR THE

ANTI-POSITION.

I'M HERE TO SAY THE UNITED

STATES WILL NOT TURN A BLIND

EYE TO THIS ANYMORE. I'M HERE

TO UNDERSCORE THE SUPPORT OF

THE UNITED STATES FOR ISRAEL.

I'M HERE TO EMPHASIZE THE

UNITED STATES IS DETERMINED

TO

STAND UP TO THE UN'S

ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS. WE WILL

NEVER REPEAT THE TERRLE

MISTAKE OF RESOLUTION 2334

AND

ALLOW ONE-SIDED SECURITY

COUNCIL RESOLUTIONS TO

CONDEMN

ISRAEL.

INSTEAD, WE WILL PUSH FOR

ACTION ON THE REAL THREATS WE

FACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

MANY APPLAUDED HALEY'S

ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS AND WE

TALKED

WITH ANOTHER WOMAN WHO IS

BATTLING THE ISRAEL

CAUSATION.

I TALK WITH HER IN OUR STUDIO.

LAWYER CARDOZA THANK YOU

FOR JOINING US.

THANK YOU.

IT'S GREAT TO BE BACK.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE LATELY?

WELL, WE HAVE BEEN VERY

SINESS AS I SERVE IN THE

COUNCIL OF THE INDEPENDENT

CHURCHES.

OF COURSE WE ARE GETTING

READY

TO START PRODUCING ANOTHER 12

SERIES ABOUT FOCUS ON

ISRAEL'S

SHOW.

WHICH YOU WORK ON A

SPECIAL

LONG VOYAGE.

WHAT DO YOU SEE HAPPENING

AT THE END OF THE YEAR?

I THINK ONE OF THE BIG

THINGS THAT TRP DID IS

PUTTING NIKKI HALEY AS THE US

AMBASSADOR FOR THE U.S..

NIKKI S A LONG HISTORY OF

BEING VERY SUPPORTIVE OF

ISRAEL. SHE WAS THE SECOND

STATE TO PASS THE BILL IN THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA THAT

DEALT WITH ECONOMIC AND

TRADE.

SO WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO

WORKING WITH HER ON SOME OF

THE ISSUES THAT WE HAVE BEEN

INVOLVED IN, ANTI-SEMITISM AT

THE UNITED NATIONS, THE WHOLE

BOYCOTT SANCTIONS MOVEMENT

THAT IS SO PERVASIVE IN THAT

CULTURE.

HOW CAN PEOPLE BE PRAYING

IN JERUSALEM?

WELL, ONE IS PRAYING FOR

THE LEADERS, THE PRIME

MINISTER, THE DECISIONHE

HAS

TO MAKE, BUT ALSO PRAYING FOR

THE UNITED STATES AND OUR

LEADERS AND TRUMP AS HE

DEFENDS HIS POLICIES IN

DEFENDING ISRAEL.

THANK YOU FOR COMING BACK.

THANK YOU.

IT'S GREAT TO BE BACK.

UP NEXT, SEE THE HUMOR

> WELCOME BACK TO JERUSALEM

DATELINE. THE GROWING

WORLDWIDE MOVEMENT AGAINST

ISRAEL CLAIMS IT PRACTICES

APARTHEID KNOWN IN SOUTH

AFRICA. THERE IS A BOYCOTT TO

SANCTION E JEWISH STATE. WE

SPOKE WITH LORIE CARDOZA.

THE FILM IS CALLED HATING

ISRAEL AND IT FEATRES THE

SEARCH FOR THE TRUTH BEHIND

THIS.

IT TAKES THE HUMOROUS

APPROACH

TO PUNCTURE THE STEREOTYPE OF

WHAT THE WOSAYSABOUT

ISRAEL.

IT IS AN APARTHEID STATE

AND OCCUPIED.

EVEN BEER THAN NORTH KOREA

AND ESPECIALLY THE UNITED

NATIONS.

IF THEY ENTER THE TWILIGHT

ZONE.

THE IS A FTH DIMENSION

BEYOND THAT WHICH IS KNOWN TO

MAN.

I HOPE THAT THE FORMAT

THAT

WE CREATED WITH THE HUMOR IS

NOT ANYWAY TRIVIALIZING THE

IMPORTANCE OF IT THAT MAKES

IT

PALATABLE ENOUGH THAT PEOPLE

WILL GIVE IT A LISTEN AND

THINK, YOU KNOW WHAT, THIS IS

WRONG.

THE NEW PLATFORM TO REMOVE

AN-SEMITISM TODAY IS FOR

THE

VEMENT.

WE CAN'T JUST TAKE WHAT

THE

MAINSTREAM MEDIA TELLS US. WE

CAN'T JUST LISTEN TO SOME OF

THE LEADERS AND ACADEMICS WHO

ARE TRYING TO CONVINCE US

THAT

WE SHOULD BOYCOTT ISRAEL.

IT'S CUTTING EDGE NATURE

AIMS TO REACH THE NEW

GENERATION.

THIS IS AIMED AT

MILLENNIAL

YOUNGER AUDIENCE. WE HAVE TO

GET TO THOSE YOUNGER PEOPLE

BECAUSE REALLY THEY ARE THE

ONES THAT ARE GNGTO MAKE

THE DIFFERENCE.

PREACHING TO THE CHOIR IS ONE

THG AND THAT CAN GET US SO

FAR, BUT PREACHING TO THE

YOUNGER PEOPLE AND TO

UNDERSTANDING.

ESPECIALLY WITH

CHRISTIANS,

IT IS OUR BIBLICAL

RESPONSIBILITY TO STAND UP

AND

NOT ALLOW OUR BROTHER ISRAEL

OR THE JEWISPEOPLE TO

STAND-ALONE AND FIGHT THIS

BATTLE ALONE.

IT'S A FUNNY MOVIE ABOUT A

SERIOUS TOPIC.

I WONDERED WHAT HAPPENED

TO

YOU.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I BELIEVE THAT I'M AT A

TIME IN MY CAREER WHERE I CAN

JUST MAKE MONEY AND MAKE

PEOPLE LAUGH OR I CAN LEAVE A

LEGACY. I FELT LIKE THIS WAS

IMPORTANT AND I WAS GOING TO

BE ABLE TO DO WHAT GOD GAVE

ME

AND THAT IS TO BE A

COMMUNICATOR AND TO REMIND

THEM THIS IS YOUR DUTY TO

DEFEND PEOPLE.

HE SAYS THIS IS A TIME TO

UNDERSTANDING THE JEWISH

PEOPLE AS A TIME LIKE THIS.

THAT IS IT FOR THIS EDITION

OF

JERUSALEM DATELINE.

PLEASE SHARE US ON YOUR

SOCIAL

NETWORKS.

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL.
