I'M MARK MARTIN.

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S DECISION

TO PULL THE UNITED STATES

OUT OF THE PARIS CLIMATE

ACCORD IS RECEIVING MIXED

REACTION FROM AROUND THE

WORLD.

MANY WORLD LEADERS AND

DEMOCRATS EXPRESSED

OUTRAGE AND

DISAPPOINTMENT, SOME

REPUBLICANS SAY IT WILL

ONLY HELP AMERICAN WORKERS

AND THE U.S. ECONOMY.

GARY LANE HAS MORE.

Reporter: WHEN

PRESIDENT TRUMP ANNOUNCED

THIS ON THURSDAY...

President Trump: THE

UNITED STATES WILL

WITHDRAW FROM THE PARIS

CLIMATE ACCORD...

Reporter: ...THE

REACTION FROM MANY

POLITICIANS AND HOLLYWOOD

ELITES ALMOST SEEMED LIKE

THE PRESIDENT'S DECISION

WOULD LEAD TO THE END OF

THE WORLD.

IT IS A HUGE MISTAKE,

AND FUTURE GENERATIONS

WILL LOOK BACK ON THIS DAY

AS ONE OF THE WORST THINGS

THAT HAS HAPPENED IN THE

21st CENTURY.

THE REST OF THE WORLD

NO LONGER RESPECTS THE

UNITED STATES.

THIS IS THE BIGGEST ISSUE

IN THE WORLD TO MOST OF

THE COUNTRIES THAT HAVE

SIGNED THIS AGREEMENT.

THEY EXPECT THE UNITED

STATES TO BE THE LEADER

AND NOT THE LAGGER.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT OPENED UP THE

POSSIBILITY OF

RENEGOTIATING THE

AGREEMENT, BUT THE LEADERS

OF FRANCE, GERMANY, AND

ITALY SAY THAT CAN'T BE

DONE.

HERE IN THE U.S., SO FAR

10 GOVERNORS AND MORE THAN

60 MAYORS SAY THEY PLAN TO

HONOR AND UPHOLD THE

COMMITMENTS MADE IN THE

2015 PARIS ACCORD.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE MADE

HIS DECISION BECAUSE THE

INDUSTRY RESTRICTIONS

MANDATED BY THE ACCORD

WOULD HARM AMERICAN

BUSINESSES AND WORKERS BY

MAKING THEM LESS

COMPETITIVE IN GLOBAL

MARKETS.

President Trump: I

WAS ELECTED TO REPRESENT

THE CITIZENS OF

PITTSBURGH, NOT PARIS.

Reporter: MANY

REPUBLICANS ON CAPITOL

HILL WERE SUPPORTIVE THE

U.S. PULLOUT.

AMONG, HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL

RYAN SAID, QUOTE, "THE

PARIS CLIMATE AGREEMENT

WAS SIMPLY A RAW DEAL FOR

AMERICA, SIGNED BY

PRESIDENT OBAMA WITHOUT

SENATE RADIFICATION.

IT WOULD HAVE DRIVEN UP

THE COST OF ENERGY, HIDING

MIDDLE CLASS AMERICANS THE

HARDEST.

HARDEST."

AND RAND PAUL TWEETED,

"THIS ACTION BY PRESIDENT

TRUMP IS GOOD NEWS FOR THE

ECONOMY AND COULD SAVE AS

MANY AS 6 MILLION U.S.

JOBS."

THIS THIS COAL MINER SAID

IT WAS A BIG DAY FOR

MINERS.

HE IS KEEPING HIS

PROMISE.

HE IS HELPING PEOPLE GET

BACK TO WORK.

THAT IS WHAT WE NEED

ANYWHERE IN THIS COUNTRY.

YOU CAN GO TO DETROIT,

PENNSYLVANIA, WEST

VIRGINIA, THERE ARE PEOPLE

BEING LAID OFF FOR YEARS.

AND THEY HAVE BEEN

FORGOTTEN.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Mark: THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION IS ASKING

THE SUPREME COURT TO

IMMEDIATELY REINSTATE ITS

BAN ON TRAVELLERS FROM SIX

COUNTRIES THAT POSE A

TERROR THREAT.

THEY SAY THE U.S. WILL BE

SAFER WITH THIS POLICY PUT

IN PLACE.

IRAN, LIBYA, SOMALIA,

SUDAN, SYRIA, AND YEMEN

ARE INCLUDED ON THE LIST.

THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

ARGUED ON THURSDAY THAT

THE FEDERAL APPEALS COURT

IN RICHMOND MADE SEVERAL

MISTAKES IN RULING AGAINST

THE POLICY.

IMMIGRATION WOULD HAVE 90

DAYS TO MAKE THE CHANGES

NECESSARY.

> PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS

DELAYED MOVING THE U.S.

EMBASSY IN ISRAEL FROM TEL

AVIV TO JERUSALEM.

THE WHITE HOUSE ISSUED A

STATEMENT ON THURSDAY

SAYING THAT PRESIDENT

TRUMP MADE THIS DECISION

TO MAXIMIZE THE CHANCES OF

SUCCESSFULLY NEGOTIATING A

DEAL BETWEEN ISRAEL AND

THE PALESTINIANS,

FULFILLING HIS SOLEMN

OBLIGATION TO DEFEND

AMERICA'S NATIONAL

SECURITY INTERESTS.

BUT THE STATEMENT WENT ON

TO EMPHASIZE IT IS ONLY A

DELAY.

SEAN SPICER SAID THE

QUESTION IS NOT IF THAT

MOVE HAPPENS, BUT ONLY

WHEN.

> AS A GUNMAN OPENED

FIRE AT A POPULAR HOTEL IN

MANILA ON THURSDAY,

PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT

TROOPS WERE IN MINDANAO.

DESPITE THE RISKS, OUR CBN

TEAM IS ON THE

BATTLEGROUND, ALONG WITH

LUCILLE TALUSAN.

Reporter: THE

PHILIPPINE MILITARY IS

WAGING AN ALL OUT WAR

AGAINST THE ISIS GROUP

MAUTE.

THEY ARE TRYING TO

LIBERATE THE SEIZED CITY

FROM THE TERRORISTS BY

LAUNCHING SURGICAL

AIRSTRIKES.

TRAGICALLY, 10 SOLDIERS

WERE KILLED RECENTLY.

THE SOLDIERS WERE

POSITIONED CLOSE TO WHERE

THE TERRORISTS WERE HOLED

OUT.

BOMBS CAN BE HEARD FROM

WHERE I AM STANDING.

NOW, THIS VILLAGE HAS

TURNED INTO A GHOST TOWN,

AND THIS IS PART OF THE

85% OF THE MARAWI CITY

THAT IS NOW UNDER THE

CONTROL OF GOVERNMENT

TRADEMARKS.

TROOPS.

BUT AS THE GOVERNMENT

FORCES CONTINUE TO

ADVANCE, THEIR MAIN

CONCERN IS THE SAFETY OF

THE TRAPPED RESIDENTS AND

HOSTAGES THAT THESE

TERRORISTS ARE USING AS

HUMAN SHIELDS.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

THERE ARE TROOPS ON THE

GROUND TO NEU NEUTRALIZE THE

CITY.

Reporter: SINCE THE

BEGINNING OF THIS WAR

AGAINST THE ISLAMIC

EXTREMISTS ON MAY 23rd,

THE NUMBER OF DISPLACED

PERSONS HAS RISEN TO

200,000.

EVACUEES LIKE THIS PERSON

ARE NOW SUFFERING THE

BRUNT OF THE MARAWI

CRISIS.

SHE SAID MANY PEOPLE FEAR

GETTING CAUGHT IN THE

CROSS-FIRE, SO THEY LEFT

THEIR HOME AND ALL OF

THEIR BELONGINGS NORTEL TO IN ORDER

TO SAVE THEIR LIVES.

WE WERE SO SCARED,

ESPECIALLY FOR THE SAFETY

OF MY BABY.

WE WERE ABLE TO ESCAPE

FROM THE CROSS-FIRE.

Reporter: DESPITE THE

DANGER, CBN HUMANITARIAN

IS GIVEN HELP TO THE WAR

VICTIMS, WHO ARE MOSTLY

MUSLIM.

AND SINCE IT IS RAMADAN,

THE ORGANIZATION IS

PROVIDING MEALS FOR THEM

AFTER THEIR FAST.

THEY'RE ALSO PROVIDING

SLIPPERS, TOYS FOR THE

CHILDREN, AND THE

MUCH-NEEDED STRESS

DEBRIEFING COUNSELLING.

MUCH TIME MAY PASS BEFORE

THIS CONFLICT ENDS, AND

THAT IS WHY CBN

HUMANITARIAN IS PREPARED

TO PROVIDE MORE HELP IN

THE COMING DAYS, BRINGING

HOPE TO THE RESIDENTS OF

MARAWI, WHO MAY HAVE LOST

THEIR DREAMS IN THE WAR.

LUCILLE TALUSAN, CBN NEWS,

MARAWI CITY, PHILIPPINES.

Mark: COMING UP, IT

IS THE HOLY MONTH OF

RAMADAN FOR MUSLIMS.

SEE WHY EXPERTS ARE

SENDING A SERIOUS WARNING

ABOUT ISIS-INSPIRED

ATTACKS.

Mark: MUSLIMS AROUND

THE WORLD ARE FASTING THIS

MONTH IN OBSERVANCE OF

RAMADAN.

IT STARTED ON MAY 26 AND

ENDS ON JUNE 24.

WHILE THE VAST MAJORITY OF

MUSLIMS USE THE TIME FOR

PRAYER AND ATONEMENT, A

GROWING NUMBER ARE USING

VIOLENCE.

ISIS IS URGING ITS MEMBERS

TO USE RAMADAN AS AN

ALL-OUT WAR.

TO UNDERSTAND WHY RAMADAN

IS SO IMPORTANT TO

JIHADISTS, GEORGE THOMAS

SAT DOWN WITH AN AUTHOR TO

"THE COMPLETE INFIDEL'S

GUIDE TO ISLAM."

TAKE A LOOK.

GEORGE, IT IS SO

IMPORTANT TO MUSLIMS

BECAUSE IT IS ORDERED IN

THE QURAN BY ALLAH TO

ATTEST FOR ALLAH.

IIT IS SACRIFICIAL OF THEIR

FLESH, PUTTING THEIR FLESH

INTO SUFFERING FOR ALLAH.

George: ROBIN, LET ME

GO TO YOU, BUT RAMADAN IS

ALSO A TIME OF JIHAD AND

MARTYRDOM FOR MUSLIMS,

RIGHT?

YES, THAT IS RIGHT,

GEORGE.

IT IS REALLY ALL THE SAME

MOTIONS.

ALL OF THE SAME THING.

WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT

JIHAD MEANS STRUGGLE.

AND SO THE SPIRITUAL

STRUGGLE WITHIN THE SOUL

TO BECOME CLOSER TO ALLAH,

IS THE SAME JIHAD AS THE

STRUGGLE AGAINST

UNBELIEVERS BECAUSE ALLAH

COMMANDS WARFARE AGAINST

UNBELIEVERS IN THE QURAN

ITSELF.

SO RAMADAN IS ESSENTIALLY

THE MONTH OF JIHAD, A

MONTH OF INTERIOR

STRUGGLE, AND IN WHICH THE

WAR AGAINST UNBELIEVERS IS

REDOUBLED BECAUSE IT IS IN

ITSELF AN ACT OF DEVOTION

TO ALLAH.

George: YOU WANTED TO

BECOME A SUICIDE BOMBER,

HELP US UNDERSTAND THIS

CULTURE OF DEATH THAT

SEEMS SO PERVASIVE IN THE

ISLAMIC WORLD, ISIK.

I WENT TO A QURAN

COURSE AT AGE 12.

IT IS AT THAT TIME THAT I

HAD VERY, VERY DISTURBED

FEELINGS AND DREAMS ABOUT

HOW TO KILL INFIDELS AFTER

GOING TO THAT QURAN

COURSE.

THEY MADE US WATCH A MOVIE

ABOUT JIHAD.

SO THEY DIDN'T PRESENT YOU

ARE GOING TO KILL A BUNCH

OF INNOCENT PEOPLE AND

CHILDREN IN THE NAME OF

ALLAH.

THEY TOLD US THAT WE WERE

FREEDOM FIGHTERS FOR

ALLAH.

WE HAD TO CLEANSE THE

WORLD FROM EVIL-DOERS,

WHICH WERE INFIDELS.

SO THEY PRESENTED IT WAS

THE MOST HEROIC ACTION

THAT ANY MUSLIM COULD DO

TO ACHIEVE ALLAH'S

ACCEPTANCE AND PLEASE

ALLAH.

George: DEFENDERS OF

ISLAM WILL SAY THAT SUCH

CALL TO ARMS IS A

PERVERSION OF THE FAITH.

IS IT?

NO, IT IS NOT, GEORGE.

NOT AT ALL.

PARADISE IS GUARANTEED IN

THE QURAN TO THOSE WHO ARE

KILLED AND WHO KILL FOR

ALLAH.

THERE IS NO OTHER

GUARANTEE OF SALVATION, NO

ASSURANCE OF AL VACATION.

THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN BE

SURE TO GAIN PARADISE IS

BY KILLING AND BEING

KILLED IN THE PROCESS.

SO MUSLIMS WHO TAKE THE

QURAN SERIOUSLY AS THE

PERFECT WORD OF ALLAH,

WILL SEE RAMADAN AS THE

PERFECT TIME TO KILL

INFIDELS AND PLEASE ALLAH,

BECAUSE RAMADAN IS TO GROW

CLOSER TO ALLAH.

George: IT SEEMS TO

INVOLVE THE BATTLE IN 624

TO JUSTIFY THEIR ACTS OF

EVIL.

QUICKLY, TELL US ABOUT

THIS BATTLE AND ITS

SIGNIFICANCE.

IT IS PIVOTAL IN

ISLAMIC HISTORY.

THE FIRST GREAT BATTLE THE

MUSLIMS FOUGHT, THEY WERE

VASTLY OUT-NUMBERED, BUT

THEY WON.

IN THE QURAN, IT SAYS

ALLAH WON THAT VICTORY FOR

YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE

RIGHTEOUS.

SO WHEN EVERYTHING GOES

WRONG FOR ISLAM' ISLAMS, THEY

BECOME MORE.

YOU WON ONLY BECAUSE OF

ALLAH'S FAVOR, AND THAT

ONLY INCREASES THE

VEROCITY AND THE

FANATICISM OF MUSLIMS IN

WAGING JIHAD AGAINST

UNBELIEVERS.

George: IS THERE A

CONNECTION BETWEEN FASTING

AND JIHAD?

ABSOLUTELY, GEORGE.

FASTING IS THE FIRST STEP

TO JIHAD BECAUSE IT IS

MAKING YOUR BODY TO SUFFER

IN THE NAME OF ALLAH.

SO JIHAD IS THE ULTIMATE

NEXT LEVEL OF SACRIFICE,

OF SACRIFICIAL LIVING,

PREPARING YOURSELF,

WHETHER TO KILL OR DIE IN

THE NAME OF ALLAH.

George: IS THIS WHY

YOU'RE SEEING THESE

SPECTACULAR ATTACKS HAPPEN

DURING RAMADAN?

FOR EXAMPLE, THE MASSACRE

OF CHRISTIANS IN THE SINAI

DESERT A FEW DAYS AGO, THE

HUGE TRUCK BOMBING IN

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN, AND

THEN IN BAGHDAD.

ARE WE GOING TO SEE MORE

AND MORE OF THESE

SPECTACULAR ATTACKS HAPPEN

IN THE NEXT DAYS TO COME?

YES, GEORGE, I THINK

THAT IS VIRTUALLY ASSURED.

BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF

THE ISLAMIC BELIEF

REGARDING JIHAD AND

RAMADAN, AND THE FACT THAT

IT IS A SPIRITUAL

DEVOTION -- THE CURRENCY

SAYQURAN SAYSFIGHTING IS PRESCRIBED FOR

YOU, EVEN THOUGH YOU

DISLIKE IT.

AND THE QURAN IS ABOUT

DOING THINGS ALLAH WANTS

YOU TO DO THAT YOU MIGHT

DISLIKE.

SO WE'RE GOING TO SEE MORE

TERRORISM DURING RAMADAN.

George: AND THE

REALITY IS THAT THE MUSLIM

WORLD IS SUFFERING AT THE

HANDS OF THEIR OWN, RIGHT,

ROBERT?

YES.

BECAUSE THIS IS THE IDEA

OF DECLARING THAT ANOTHER

MUSLIM GROUP IS NOT MUSLIM

AND IS THERE A APOSTATE, AND

THIS IS WHY MUSLIMS ARE

THE FIRST VICTIMS OF JIHAD

VIOLENCE.

George: FINALLY TO

YOU, ISIK, HOW CAN

CHRISTIANS PRAY FOR

MUSLIMS DURING RAMADAN?

FIRST OF ALL, WE NEED

TO UNDERSTAND, GEORGE,

THEY ARE SEEKING THE

CREATOR.

THEY WANT TO GET CLOSE TO

GOD, BUT THEY DON'T KNOW

WHO THE TRUE GOD IS.

I THINK OUR MAIN POINT OF

PRAYER IS DURING THE TIME

THEY ARE PUTTING ALL OF

THEIR EFFORT, LIKE I WAS

DOING, WE CAN START

PRAYING WHOLEHEARTEDLY

THAT THEY WILL GET CLOSER

TO JESUS, THAT THEY WILL

KNOW THE TRUE REDEEMER AND

TRUE SAVIOR OF THE WORLD,

WHO DIED FOR THEIR SINS TO

SAVE THEM AND LOVE THEM

UNCONDITIONALLY.

SO I THINK THIS WOULD BE

THE MAIN POINT, THAT THE

GOD OF OUR PRAYERS, THAT

TRUE GOD WILL REVEAL

HIMSELF TO THEM DURING

THIS MONTH.

George: ISIK ABLA, I

KNOW THAT IS YOUR HEART AS

YOU MINISTER TO MUSLIMS

AROUND THE WORLD.

AND ROBERT SPENCER, TO

YOU, SIR, ALWAYS GREAT TO

HAVE YOUR EXPERTISE AND

ANALYSIS ON THIS VERY,

VERY IMPORTANT TOPIC.

THANKS TO BOTH OF YOU FOR

COMING ON THIS SHOW.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

> UP NEXT, OPIOID

ADDICTION IS SWEEPING THE

UNITED STATES.

STILL AHEAD, WHAT ONE

LAWMAKER IS DOING TO FIGHT

THE PROBLEM IN OHIO.

Mark: MIKE DEWINE

SAYS FIVE BIG DRUG-MAKERS

HAVE CREATED A DEADLY MESS

IN OHIO AND HE WANTS THEM

TO CLEAN IT UP.

HE SUED OHIO FOR

INTENTIONALLY LEADING

PATIENTS ABOUT THE DANGERS

OF PAINKILLERS.

TAKE A LOOK.

Reporter: OHIO IS ONE

OF SEVERAL STATES THAT ARE

GOING AFTER DRUG-MAKERS,

SAYING THEY PUT PROFITS

ABOVE SAFETY AND FUELED A

NATIONWIDE OPIOID

EPIDEMIC.

IT IS JUST AND IT IS

RIGHT THAT THE PEOPLE WHO

PLAYED A SIGNIFICANT ROLE

IN CREATING THIS MESS IN

THE STATE OF OHIO SHOULD

PAY TO CLEAN IT UP.

Mark: HE SAYS THE

DRUG COMPANIES FLOODED HIS

STATE WITH MISLEADING

INFORMATION ABOUT THE

RISKS ABOUT PRESCRIPTION

OPIOIDS LIKE OXYCONTIN AND

PERCOCET.

WE HAD A NUMBER OF

PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES

THAT DEVELOPED PAIN MEDS,

AND THEY WERE PUSHING

THOSE OUT AND THEY WERE

TELLING THE DOCTORS THESE

ARE NOT VERY ADDICTIVE.

IT TURNS OUT THEY ARE VERY

ADDICTIVE.

Mark: ONCE ADDICTED,

SOME PATIENTS THEN TURN TO

HEROIN, WHICH IS STRONGER

AND CHEAPER.

THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

REPORTED THAT COUNTY

CORONERS SAY THAT MORE

THAN 4,000 DIED LAST YEAR

FROM DRUG OVER DOSES,

COMPARED TO THE RECORD

3,000 THE YEAR BEFORE.

POLICE RESCUING A

4-YEAR-OLD IN A VAN WITH

HIS GRANDMOTHER AND HER

BOYFRIEND PASSED OUT,

OVERDOSED ON HEROIN.

AT LEAST ONE DRUG COMPANY

SAYS DEWINE'S ACCUSATIONS

ARE UNFOUNDED, BUT OTHER

SAYS IT WANTS TO WORK

TOGETHER TO FIND A

SOLUTION.

KENTUCKY AND OREGON HAVE

FILED SIMILAR SUITS

AGAINST DRUG-MAKERS IN

RECENT YEARS, AND WALKED

AWAY WITH MILLIONS.

BUT DEWINE HAS CREATED A

HEROIN UNIT TO GO AFTER

THE MEXICAN CARTELS THAT

BRING THE DRUG TO HIS

STATE.

HE IS PROMOTING EDUCATION

AS EARLY AS KINDERGARTEN,

AND HE IS ALSO ASKING

CHURCHES TO HELP.

THE TREATMENT THAT

WORKS, THE PROGRAM THAT

WORKS, MANY TIMES HAS A

FAITH-BASED COMPONENT PART

TO IT.

Mark: THOSE ARE

SERIOUSLY DISTURBING

IMAGES IN THAT PIECE.

IT WOULD BE GREAT FOR THE

CHURCH TO GET INVOLVED

THERE.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH

MORE CBN "NEWSWATCH."

THANKS FOR WATCHING; STAY

WITH US.

Mark: WELCOME BACK TO

"NEWSWATCH."

CBN'S HUMANITARIAN

ORGANIZATION, "OPERATION

BLESSING," IS CELEBRATING

A MILESTONE.

THEIR HUNGER STRIKE FORCE

HAS TRAVELLED

35 MILLION MILES ACROSS

AMERICA SINCE FIRST

HITTING THE ROAD 25 YEARS

AGO.

"OPERATION BLESSING" TRUCK

DRIVERS GOT THEIR PICTURE

TAKEN WITH PAT ROBERTSON

AFTER "THE 700 CLUB" THIS

WEEK.

THE HUNGER STRIKE FORCE

HAULS FOOD AND SUPPLIES TO

THOSE IN NEED.

OVER THE FLEET'S 25-YEAR

EXISTENCE, DRIVERS HAVE

DISTRIBUTED

1.5 BILLION POUNDS OF FOOD

AND RELIEF SUPPLIES.

Pat: TO ME, IT IS

LIKE A LIFE SOURCE BECAUSE

WHEN THOSE TRUCKS SHOW UP

AT A DISASTER SITE, IT

MEANS HOPE HAS COME IN.

THERE ARE PEOPLE HAULING

BLANKETS AND FOOD AND

MEDICINE, AND THEY'RE

HAULING THE STAPLES OF

LIFE.

IT FEELS GOOD TO GO

INTO A NEEDY AREA, AND

ESPECIALLY TO SEE PEOPLE

LIGHT UP WHEN THEY SEE US

COMING.

I FEEL SO GOOD TO BE A

PART OF THAT, TO BE ABLE

TO TAKE CARE OF THOSE

PEOPLE.

I'M GRATEFUL FOR THIS

OPPORTUNITY, AND I LOVE

THE SAVIOR AND APPRECIATE

CBN AND "OPERATION

BLESSING" FOR THE AFFECT

THEY HAVE ON PEOPLE AND

THE HELP THEY GIVE.

Mark: DRIVER FRANK

KENNEDY TOLD CBN NEWS THAT

HE BELIEVES HIS POSITION

IS A CALLING AND IT IS NOT

DRIVERS THAT MINISTER;

IT'S MINISTERS WHO DRIVE.

WELL-SAID.

> IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR

SOME GOOD ENTERTAINMENT

THIS WEEKEND, WE'VE GOT

YOUR FAMILY-FRIENDLY MOVIE

REVIEWS.

OUR FRIENDS AT "PLUGGED

IN" BRING US A REVIEW OF

"WONDER WOMAN."

TAKE A LOOK.

IT IS OUR SACRED DUTY

TO DEFEND THE WORLD, AND

IT IS WHAT I'M GOING TO

DO.

Reporter: IN THE

MOVIE "WONDER WOMAN" A

YOUNG PRINCESS NAMED DIANA

LIVES ON AN ISLAND WITH

AMAZONS.

SHE MAY HAVE WELL JUST

STAYED THERE, EXCEPT THAT

STEVE TREVOR SOMEHOW

PIERCED THE ISLAND'S MAGIC

DEFENSES AND CRASHED HIS

PLANE RIGHT OFF THE COAST.

DIANA RESCUES THE MAN, AND

ONCE SHE HEARS HIM TELL OF

THE HORRIFIC WAR TO END

ALL WARS --

WHAT IS YOUR MISSION?

TO STOP THE WAR.

WHAT WAR?

THE WAR TO END ALL

WARS.

Reporter: SHE KNOWS

THAT ARIS, THE GOD OF WAR

AND THE ENEMY MUST BE AT

WORK.

SHE FEELS COMPELLED TO

STOP ARIS AND HELP MANKIND

FIND THEIR PATH.

BUT TO DO SO MEANS LEAVING

HER MOTHER, THE AMAZON,

AND THE MAGICAL ISLAND

BEHIND.

I'M GOING, MOTHER.

IF YOU SHOULD LEAVE,

YOU MAY NEVER RETURN.

WHAT WILL I BE IF I

STAY?

Reporter:

UNFORTUNATELY, DIANA SOON

LEARNS THOSE MORTELS

AREN'T AS WISE OR TRUE AS

SHE HAD HOPED.

IT SHOWCASES ONE OF THE

MOST PRINCIPLED HEROS.

SHE RAILS AGAINST IN

JUSTICE, SHE WEEPS OVER

THE HORRORS OF WAR, AND

SHE BELIEVES IN GOODNESS

AND TRUTH AND LOVE.

HOWEVER, THE FILM'S

PANTHIISTIC FLAVOR AND

MILD PROFANITIES DETRACT

FROM THOSE VIRTUES.

SO I'LL GIVE IT A THREE

OUT OF FIVE STARS.

I'M BOB WALLASHEFSKI FOR

"FOCUS ON THE FAMILY"

"PLUGGED IN" MOVIE REVIEW.
