The unrest over Temple Mount continues but what's behind it? "That's this libel, Al-Aqsa is in danger and this is baseless;" plus Iranian Christian fights for freedom and her life; and how history and prophecy merged during the 1967 Six-Day War. Read Transcript


".

Chris: THIS WEEK ON

"JERUSALEM DATELINE," THE

UNREST ABOUT THE TEMPLE

MOUNT CONTINUES, BUT WHAT

IS BEHIND THE VIOLENCE.

WHAT IGNITES THE PEOPLE

AND BRINGS THEM TO THE

STREETS IS THIS LIABLE:

AL-AQSA IS IN DANGER AND

THIS IS BASELESS.

Chris: PLUS, AND

IRANIAN CHRISTIAN FIGHTS

FOR HER LIFE.

AND WE'LL SEE HOW TO PRAY

FOR THE PEACE OF

JERUSALEM.

HELLO, AND WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "JERUSALEM

DATELINE."

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL, COMING

TO YOU THIS WEEK FROM JUST

OUTSIDE THE WALLS OF THE

OLD CITY.

THE UNREST AROUND THE

TEMPLE MOUNT CONTINUES.

HERE IS CBN NEWS JULIE

STAAL WITH AN UPDATE.

Reporter: ISRAELI

POLICE ARE ON HIGH ALERT

FOR FRIDAY PRAYERS AT THE

TEMPLE MOUNT.

THEY HAVE LIMITED IT TO

MEN OVER 50 AND ALL WOMEN.

LATER CLASHES BROKE OUT IN

PALESTINIAN AREAS OUTSIDE

JERUSALEM AS THEY DID THE

PREVIOUS WEEK.

ON THURSDAY, THE MUSLIM

WHACKSTOLD THEM THE MUSLIMS

COULD PRAY.

TROUBLE STARTED ON

JULY 14th, WHEN THREE

ISRAELI ARABS KILLED TOO

ISRAELI PROGRAM IN A

WEAPONS ATTACK WITH

WEAPONS THEY HAD STORED ON

THE TEMPLE MOUNT.

THE TERRORISTS WERE

SUBSEQUENTLY KILLED ON THE

TEMPLE MOUNT COMPOUND.

Chris: MANY

PALESTINIAN PROTESTS

REVOLVE ABOUT ONE ISSUE,

THE AL-AQSA MOSQUE ON THE

TEMPLE MOUNT IS IN DANGER.

IT COULD SEND MUSLIMS

AROUND THE WORLD INTO A

FRENZY.

IT IS A DISHONEST TACTIC

UNDERMINING JUDEO

CHRISTIAN VALUES AS WELL.

IT IS ONE OF THE MOST HOLY

AND CONTESTED PIECES OF

REAL ESTATE ON EARTH, THE

TEMPLE MOUNT.

FOR DECADES, THE ISLAMIC

LEADERS HAVE INCITED

MUSLIMS TO VIOLENCE BY

TELLING THEM THAT THE

AL-AQSA MOSQUE IS IN

DANGER.

FIRST THEY CLAIMED THAT

THE ISRAELIS WERE

UNDERMINING ITS

FOUNDATIONS TO MAKE IT

COLLAPSE.

NOW THEY ALSO SAY IT IS A

THREAT EVEN FOR JEWS TO

PRAY ON THE SACRED

PLATEAU.

THE EXTREME MOVEMENT

BELIEVES THAT ISRAELI I ISRAEL IS

PLANNING TO DESTROY THE

HOLY SHRINE.

Chris: IT IS THE

PLACE WHERE TWO

CONSECUTIVE JEWISH TEMPLES

ONCE STOOD.

THE SECOND WAS DESTROYED

IN 70 A.D.BY THE ROMANS.

NOW MUSLIM MOSQUES OCCUPY

THE SITE.

THE GOLDEN DOME OF THE

ROCK TO MY RIGHT IS THE

MOST IDENTIFIABLE MUSLIM

SHRINE ON THE TEMPLE

MOUNT.

BUT IT IS THE GREY-DOMED

AL-AQSA MOSQUE TO MY LEFT

THAT MUSLIMS CONSIDER IS

THE THIRD HOLE LEFT SITE

IN JERUSALEM.

THEY BELIEVE MUHAMMAD TOOK

A FLIGHT ON HIS WINGED

HORSE.

IN MUSLIM THEOLOGY, THE

SITE PRECEDES THE JEWS AND

GOES BACK TO CREATION.

YOU KNOW, ADAM, WHEN HE

DESCENDED FROM THE HEAVEN,

HE CAME HERE AND HE PRAYED

HERE.

THERE IS NO DIFFERENT

BETWEEN SOLOMON AND KING

DAVID -- IT'S ALL THE

SAME.

THEY'VE ALL BEEN IN THE

AL-AQSA MOSQUE.

Chris: TODAY THE

ENTIRE PLATEAU IS REFERRED

TO AS AL-AQSA.

THEY WROTE, "THE AL

ACAPULCAL-AQSAMOSQUE IS IN DANGER," IS A

LIE.

THE MASS THAT IGNITES

THE PEOPLE AND BRINGS THEM

TO THE STREETS AND CAUSES

VIOLENCE IS THIS LIABLE:

"AL-AQSA IS IN DANGER,"

AND THIS IS BASELESS.

Chris: THIS

ARCHEOLOGIST SAYS THERE

HAVE BEEN EXCAVATIONS NEAR

THE TEMPLE MOUNT, BUT

NEVER UNDER IT.

IT WAS NEVER TOUCHED BY

THE SPADE OF THE

ARCHEOLOGISTS.

Chris: HE SAYS IT WAS

MUSLIMS, NOT JEWS, WHO

BEGAN DIGGING IN AN

ATTEMPT TO REWRITE

HISTORY.

SINCE THE '90s, THERE

WERE MANY DESTRUCTIVE

DIGGINGS GOING ON IN THE

TEMPLE MOUNT, WHICH WERE

NOT FOR ARCHEOLOGICAL

PURPOSES, BUT FOR THE CON

STARR.

CONTRARY.

Chris: AROUND 2,000

DUG UP THOUSANDS OF YEARS

OF HISTORY FROM UNDER THE

TEMPLE MOUNT TO MAKE ROOM

FOR A GIANT MOSQUE.

MARKI HEADED AN OPERATION

TO SAVE ARTIFACTS FROM THE

DISCARDED MATERIAL.

YEARS LATER, ARCHEOLOGISTS

AND VOLUNTEERS STILL SIFT

THROUGH THE DEBRIS.

ACCORDING TO HIM, THE

GRAND HAJJ STARTED IT IN

THE 1930s.

HE ACCUSED THE JEWS OF

WANTING TO COLLAPSE THE

TEMPLE MOUNT.

THAT RESULTED IN MURDERING

OF JEWS.

DR. YITZHAK WRIGHTER SAYS

THE TACTIC HAS NOT ERODED

ITS POTENCY.

THEY THINK THE AL-AQSA

IS IN DANGER AS LONG AS

JERUSALEM IS CONTROLLING

THE EASTERN PART OF EAST

JERUSALEM.

Chris: THEY BLAMED

ISRAEL FOR THE ARSON

ATTACK ON THE MOSQUE BY A

VISITING AUSTRALIAN

CHRISTIAN.

AND MORE TROUBLE IN 1996,

THE WORST PALESTINIAN

VIOLENCE IN 30 YEARS BROKE

OUT WHEN ISRAEL OPENED AN

EXIT FROM THE TUNNELS.

AND IN 2004, RAIN AND SNOW

TOPPLED SOME OF THE TEMPLE

MOUNT, AND THAT PROMPTED

AN UPROAR WITH ISRAEL

TRIED TO REBUILD IT.

WE ASKED MUSLIMS IN

JERUSALEM WHAT THEY THINK.

IT IS IN DANGER.

THEY WANT TO DESTROY IT.

THEY ARE DIGGING AND

DIGGING, AND THEY DON'T

FIND ANYTHING.

GOD WILL SAVE IT.

Chris: RECENTLY

ISRAEL ARRESTED A KEY

ISLAMIC FIGURE FOR

INCITEMENT.

HE TOLD HIS FOLLOWERS THAT

ISRAEL PLANNED TO BREAK

INTO THE TEMPLE MOUNT, AND

THEY SHOULD USE THEIR

BODIES TO PREVENT JEWS

FROM GOING UP THERE.

EXPERTS SAY IT IS

IMPORTANT THE WEST TAKES

NOTICE NOW BECAUSE

MILLIONS OF MUSLIMS

BELIEVE THE LIE IS TRUE.

THEY SAY IF IT BROUGHT

VIOLENCE IN THE PAST, IT

WILL DO SO IN THE FUTURE.

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY

JUST INCREASED THEIR

BUDGET TO PAY CONVICTED

TERRORISTS AND THEIR

FAMILIES.

AND THE MOVE COMES DESPITE

U.S. PRESSURE TO END THE

PRACTICE.

ON FRIDAY, JULY 21st,

19-YEAR-OLD OMAR al-ABED

ENTERED THIS HOME AND

MURDERED A 70-YEAR-OLD AND

HIS TWO GROWN PICTURE.

THE BEDROOM WAS OPEN,

THE DOOR WAS UNLOCKED,

BECAUSE THEY WERE WAITING

FOR PEOPLE FROM THE

COMMUNITY TO COME AND

CELEBRATE WITH THEM THE

BIRTH OF THEIR NEW

GRANDCHILD.

AND WITHIN SECONDS, THEY

WERE MURDERED IN THEIR OWN

HOME.

Chris: AFTER THE

MURDERS, ABED WAS SHOT AND

IS NOW RECOVERING IN AN

ISRAELI HOSPITAL.

BUT ACCORDING TO A

LONG-STANDING PO POLICY BY

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY,

HE WILL NOT START

RECEIVING A SALARY.

FROM FRIDAY, THE DAY HE

WAS ARRESTED, AND HE WILL

GET A LIFE SENTENCE FOR

MURDER, AND HIS SALARY

WILL EVENTUALLY REACH

10,00,000 SHEKELS, WHICH IS

ABOUT $4,000 A MONTH U.S.

Chris: ACCORDING TO

ITIMAR MARCUS OF THE

PALESTINIAN MEDIA WATCH,

THEIR FUNDING HAS

INCREASED.

IN THEIR 2017 BUDGET, THE

P.A. INCREASED SPENDING TO

TERRORIST PRISONERS BY

13, AND BY 4% TO THEIR

FAMILIES.

THIS YEAR DIRECT FUNDING

OF TERRORISM HAS REACHED

$355 MILLION.

IT IS A SLAP IN THE

FACE TO THE UNITED STATES.

IT IS A SLAP IN THE FACE

TO THE FOREIGN AFFAIRS

COMMITTEE OF THE SENATE

THAT JUST MET LAST WEEK TO

DECIDE WHAT TO DO ABOUT

THIS.

AND I'M HOPING THAT THE

SENATE AND THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE AND THE CONGRESS

AND THE ADMINISTRATION

WILL ACT VERY FIRMLY ON

THIS REWARD TO TERROR.

Chris: THE U.S.

SENATE IS NOW CONSIDERING

LEGISLATION NAMED AFTER

TAYLOR FORCE, A U.S.

CITIZEN KILLED BY A

PALESTINIAN TERRORIST, TO

DEFUND THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY IF THEY CONTINUE

TO PAY TERRORISTS AND

THEIR FAMILIES.

SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM

TOLD CBN NEWS...

WE'RE GOING TO KEEP

THAT AID FLOWING WITH ONE

CONDITION: THE SECRETARY

OF STATE HAS TO CERTIFY

THAT THE PALESTINIAN

GOVERNMENT IS CHANGING

THEIR BEHAVIOR.

IF THEY CAN'T DO THAT,

WE'LL CUT THAT MONEY OFF.

Chris: MARCUS SAYS

THE P.A. LEGITIMIZES THESE

PAYMENTS.

PEOPLE DON'T UNDERSTAND

WHY, AND I'LL EXPLAIN WHY.

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY

CLAIMS TO ITS PEOPLE THAT

THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO KILL

ISRAELIS.

LITERALLY A RIGHT TO KILL

ISRAELIS CIVILIANS, WOMEN,

CHILDREN, AND BABIES, AND

THEY CLAIM THAT A U.N.

DECISION FROM THE 1970s,

WHICH SAID THAT THE

PALESTINIANS HAVE THE

RIGHT TO USE ALL MEANS TO

GAIN THEIR RIGHTS MEANS

THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO KILL

CIVILIANS.

THIS IS THE WAY THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY

INTERPRETS IT.

Chris: MARCUS ARGUES

PASSING THE TAYLOR FORCE

ACT WOULD SEND A POWERFUL

MESSAGE TO THE P.A., THAT

THE UNITED STATES REJECTS

THAT KIND OF THINKING.

> UP NEXT, ISIS MAY BE

GONE FROM MOSUL AND OTHER

Chris: ALTHOUGH THE

UNITED STATES AND OTHER

COALITION PARTNERS HAVE

DRIVEN ISIS AWAY FROM

IRAQI CITIES LIKE MOSUL,

THE TASK OF REBUILDING

REMAINS ENORMOUS.

BUT THE QUESTION FOR

OTHERS IS: WHAT WILL

BECOME OF THE PERSECUTE PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS?

Reporter: THESE ARE

THE SIGHTS OF VICTORY,

PEOPLE DANCING AND WAVING

FLAGS IN THE STREETS.

AND THESE ARE THE SOUNDS:

COMMANDERING DECLARING

HISTORIC SUCCESS AGAINST

ISIS.

OVER THE LAST THREE

YEARS, THROUGH IRAQI

DETERMINATION, ISIS HAS

BEEN ON AN INCREASINGLY

RAPID DECLINE, LOSING

TIKRIT, RAMADI, FALLUJAH,

AND NOW MOSUL.

THE IRAQI SECURITY FORCES,

ON THE OTHER HAND, HAVE

ONLY IMPROVED AND GOTTEN

STRONGER.

THIS VICTORY TODAY,

IT'S NOT A VICTORY OF

IRAQI PEOPLE.

THIS IS ANVIK TOR A VICTORY FOR THE

WHOLE WORLD, A WORLD THAT

SUFFERS FROM THE ACTS OF

TERRORISTS EVERYWHERE.

Reporter: AND THE

SUFFERING REMAINS, AS YOU

CAN SEE FROM THIS DRONE

FOOTAGE.

IT SHOWS WIDESPREAD

DEVASTATION ON A MASSIVE

LEVEL, WITH SMOKE STILL

RISING INTO THE SKY.

WE WERE OVER THERE BACK

IN APRIL.

AND WHAT WE SAW WAS THAT

THE SUNNIS -- ISIS WENT

THROUGH AND SPRAYPAINTED

EACH HOME AND SAID THIS IS

EITHER A SUNNI HOME, A

SHI'A HOME OR A CHRISTIAN

HOME.

IF IT WAS SHI'A OR

CHRISTIAN, THEY PUT UP A

BARREL OF OIL AND LIT IT

ON FIRE.

Reporter: JEFF KING

IS THE PRESIDENT OF

"INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN

CONCERN," WHICH ACTS AS A

BRIDGE BETWEEN BELIEVERS

IN FREE COUNTRIES AND

THOSE IN PERSECUTED

COUNTRIES.

JUST BACK FROM IRAQ, KING

SAYS REBUILDING AND GIVING

VIABILITY TO THE PEOPLE OF

IRAQ WILL BE FAR BEYOND

THE CAPABILITIES OF THE

IRAQI GOVERNMENT,

ESPECIALLY FOR THE

THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS

AND OTHER RELIGIOUS

MINORITY LEADERS WHO WERE

FORCED FROM THEIR HOMES

DUE TO ISIS.

MANY WITH ONLY THE CLOTHES

ON THEIR BACKS.

HIS TEAM TOOK THESE

PICTURES, I IMAGES OF JESUS

USED AS TARGET PRACTICE BY

ISIS FIGHTERS.

IN ANOTHER CHURCH, THE

STATUE OF MARY SHOT UP TO

WHERE ONLY PIECES OF HER

FACE REMAINED.

WE SAW THESE IMAGES

OVER AND OVER.

THEY WANT TO DESECRATE AND

PUSH THE CHRISTIANS OUT.

IF THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

CONVERT TO ISLAM, THEY

WANT THEM OUT OF THE

COUNTRY AND OUT OF THE

AREA.

Reporter: KING SAYS

MUCH OF THE U.S. AID IS

CHANNELLED AWAY FROM

CHRISTIANS ONCE IT GETS TO

IRAQ, DUE TO THE DOMINANT

MUSLIM RELIGION.

HE SAYS STATISTICS SHOW OF

THE 1.5 MILLION CHRISTIANS

CALLING IRAQ HOME IN 2003,

ONLY ABOUT 250,000 REMAIN.

KING TOLD US THE MAJORITY

OF CHRISTIANS HIS WORKERS

SPOKE WITH WANT TO COME

BACK.

THEY JUST NEED THE NEW

GOVERNMENT OF IRAQ TO

PROTECT THEM.

WHEN THAT HELP COMES,

THEY PRAISE GOD LIKE

CRAZY.

AND THEY SAY, MY GOSH,

WE'RE PART OF SOMETHING SO

BIG.

Reporter: A FAMILY

DOING GOD'S WORK HERE ON

EARTH, SUPPORTING EACH

OTHER.

ERIC GONZALES, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Chris: COMING UP, AN

Chris: AFTER ALLOWING

IN MORE MIGRANTS THAN ALL

OF EUROPE COMBINED IN THE

PAST FEW YEARS, SWEDEN HAS

YANKED THE WELCOME MAT,

AND NOW CHRISTIANS ARE

BEING SENT BACK TO THEIR

HOME NATIONS TO FACE

CERTAIN TORTURE, AND EVEN

DEATH, IN THEIR MUSLIM

NATIONS.

DALE HURD REPORTS ON ONE

SUCH CASE FROM SWEDEN.

Reporter: SWEDEN IS

ABOUT TO DEPORT IRANIAN

CHRISTIAN ACTRESS AIDEEN

STRANDSSON BACK TO THE

ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN,

WHERE SHE FACES TORTURE,

RAPE, AND EVEN DEATH IN AN

IRANIAN PRISON.

BUT AS THE SWEDISH

OFFICIALS HAVE TOLD HER,

BECOMING A CHRISTIAN WAS

HER DECISION, AND NOW IT

IS HER PROBLEM, NOT

THEIRS.

THIS FROM A NATION THAT

THINKS OF ITSELF AS ONE OF

THE MOST HUMANE COUNTRIES

IN THE WORLD.

THEY WELCOMED REFUGEES

WITH OPEN ARMS UNTIL THE

GOVERNMENT TOOK TOO MUCH

POLITICAL HEAT AND DECIDED

SOME HAVE TO GO, WHETHER

IT KILLS THEM OR NOT.

SWEDEN'S MIGRATION BOARD

EVEN VIOLATES ITS OWN

STATED PRINCIPLES, THAT IT

WILL NEVER DEPORT

ASYLUM-SEEKERS TO A NATION

WHERE THEY WILL BE HARMED.

THE IMMIGRATION BOARD

HAS ON ITS HOME PAGE

INFORMATION ABOUT EACH

COUNTRY.

AND IN THE INFORMATION

REGARDING IRAN, THERE ARE

PLENTY REPORTS STATING

THAT IT IS STANDARD TO

TORTURE AND TO RAPE IN

IRANIAN PRISONS.

THE QUESTION WE HAVE BEEN

ASKING THE MIGRATION TIME

AND TIME AGAIN: WHY ARE

YOU PUTTING THIS

INFORMATION ON YOUR HOME

PAGE IF YOU DON'T FOLLOW

IT?

Reporter: THIS

SWEDISH ATTORNEY HAS

ASSISTED AN ESTIMATED

1,000 CHRISTIAN

ASYLUM-SEEKERS FACING

DEPORTATION.

DO YOU THINK IN AIDEEN'S

CASE THEY THINK SHE IS

LYING, OR THEY JUST DON'T

CARE.

PRIMARILY THEY DON'T

CARE.

IT IS NUMBERS.

THEY HAVE PROMISED THE

PUBLIC IN SWEDEN THAT THEY

WILL DEPORT MORE PEOPLE

THAN BEFORE.

AND SO THEY HAVE TO FILL

THE QUOTA.

Reporter: AIDEEN

STRANDSSON CAME TO SWEDEN

IN 2014 ON A WORK VISA AND

ADOPTED A SWEDISH LAST

NAME.

SHE STARRED IN FILMS IN

SWEDEN, MAKING HER EVEN A

BIGGER TARGET IF SHE IS

SENT BACK.

SHE SAYS SHE CAME TO

CHRIST AFTER SEEING A

VIDEO OF MUSLIMS STONING A

WOMAN TO DEATH.

I DECIDED AT THAT TIME

I DON'T WANT TO BE MUSLIM

ANYMORE.

Reporter: SHE KEPT

HER CONVERSION LARGELY A

SECRET, BUT WHEN SHE CAME

TO SWEDEN, SHE REQUESTED A

PUBLIC BAPTISM.

I WANT TO HAVE A

BAPTISM IN THE PUBLIC

BECAUSE I WANT TO SAY I'M

NOT AFRAID ANYMORE.

Reporter: IRANIAN

INTELLIGENCE LIKELY KNOWS,

TWO.

SHE HAS ALREADY GOTTEN

THREATS.

ARTICLE 33 ON THE GENEVA

CONVENTION OF REFUGEES,

PROHIBITS COUNTRIES FROM

DEPORTING ASYLUM-SEEKERS

BOASYLUM-SEEKERSBACK TO THEIR OWN

COUNTRIES IF THEY FACE

DANGER.

HE SAYS PART OF THE

PROBLEM IS MIGRATION

OFFICIALS DON'T UNDERSTAND

WHY SOMEONE WOULD BECOME A

CHRISTIAN, AND THEY DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS

TO BE A CHRISTIAN.

LESS THAN 20% OF SWEDES

SAY THEY BELIEVE IN GOD.

THIS IS MOST APPARENT

WHEN THEY COME TO THE

QUESTION WHEN A CONVERT

SAYS, I CONVERTED BECAUSE

OF THE LOVE I HAVE

RECEIVED FROM JESUS

CHRIST.

AND THEY ALMOST MOCKINGLY

ASK THE CONVERT, WHAT DO

YOU MEAN BY LOVE?

THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND THE

MESSAGE IN THE BIBLE.

IT'S JUST COMPLETELY ALIEN

TO THEM.

Reporter: THE SWEDEN

MIGRATION BOARD'S PRESS

OFFICER TOLD US, IF THE

PERSON HAS WELL-FOUNDED

REASON TO FEAR PERSECUTION

DUE TO RELIGIOUS BELIEFS,

HE OR SHE WILL BE GRANTED

ASYLUM IN FREEDOM.

BUT AIDEEN'S ASYLUM

REQUEST HAS BEEN REJECTED.

AT HER HEARING, THE

SWEDISH MIGRATION OFFICIAL

TOLD HER IT WOULDN'T BE AS

BAD FOR HER IN IRAN AS SHE

EXPECTED BECAUSE SHE WOULD

ONLY HAVE TO SPEND ABOUT

SIX MONTHS IN PRISON.

DONOR TOLD US OF A SIMILAR

CASE WHERE AN IRANIAN

WOMAN WAS IMPRISONED FOR

BECOMING A CHRISTIAN.

AFTER HER RELEASE, SHE

WAS SILENT.

SHE DID NOT TELL WHAT

HAPPENED.

AFTER SIX WEEKS, SHE THREW

HERSELF OUT OF A WINDOW ON

THE FOURTH FLOOR AND

KILLED HERSELF.

Reporter: BUT STORIES

LIKE THAT MAY NOT STOP

AIDEEN'S DEPORTATION.

SESSIONS MONTHS IN A

PRISON FOR A WOMAN IS NO

PROBLEM.

THEY DON'T CARE.

NO, THEY DON'T CARE

ABOUT IT.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS, STOCKHOLM.

Chris: ON THE EVE OF

THE 1967 SIX-DAY WAR, JEWS

AROUND THE WORLD WERE

TERRIFIED THAT THEIR

NEWLY-BORN COUNTRY WAS

ABOUT TO BE DESTROYED.

AS SCOTT ROSS REPORTS, NO

ONE COULD HAVE IMAGINE THE

VICTORY THAT WAS IN STORE

FOR ISRAEL, AND HOW

HISTORY AND PROPHECY WOULD

COME TOGETHER TO DELIVER

AN AMAZING VICTORY.

I WAS WRITING A

CHEMISTRY EXAM IN MY

JUNIOR HIGH IN MONTREAL,

CANADA.

I SNUCK IN A TRANSISTOR

RADIO INTO THE EXAM ROOM.

Reporter: MORE THAN

5,000 MILES FROM ISRAEL,

JEWISH TEENAGER MOSHI WAS

FEELING THE SHOCKWAVES OF

THE SIX-DAY WAR.

THE WORLD TOLD US THE

NEXT HOLOCAUST WAS GOING

TO HAPPEN.

WE EXPECTED THE WORST.

Reporter: THEN

SOMETHING VERY DIFFERENT

HAPPENED.

ON JUNE 6, SOMETHING

MIRACULOUS HAPPENED.

THE MOST POWERFUL ARAB

ARMY WAS BRITISH-ARMED,

BRITISH-TRAINED.

THEY WERE IN CHARGE OF THE

OLD SEASON.

FOR SOME REASON, TO THIS

DAY NO ONE KNOWS WHY, THEY

PICKED UP AND LEFT.

Reporter: ON THE

THIRD DAY, ISRAEL CAPTURED

THE OLD CITY.

ON MY TRANSISTOR RADIO,

I WAS LISTENING TO A

BROADCAST OF A BROADCASTER

BROADCASTER.

THOUSANDS OF KILOMETRES

AWAY, BLOWING THE IT'S

SHOFAR, THE SOUND GOES

ACROSS THE RADIOWAVES, AND

I KNEW NO MATTER WHAT

HAPPENED, IT WOULD BE

OKAY.

HOW HAS IT CHANGED YOUR

LIFE?

THAT'S A PRETTY LOADED

QUESTION.

NOT REALLY.

THAT'S WHEN I FINALLY

REALIZED I'M NOT STUDYING

THE BIBLE, I JUST BECAME

THE BIBLE.

MY CHILD PLAYING IN THE

PARK 31, 30 YEARS AGO,

MAYBE MY SON WAS THE ONE

THAT ZACHARIAH SAW IN THIS

VISION, WHEN SE HE SAID THERE

WILL BE A TIME WHEN YOUNG

PEOPLE AND YOUNG CHILDREN

WILL BE PLAYING IN THE

STREETS.

> IN ADDITION TO THAT,

IT GAVE THEM THE EYES TO

SEE EVERYTHING IN ITS REAL

CONTEXT.

CONSTRUCTION BOOMS, CRANES

THAT YOU SEE ALL OVER THE

COUNTRY -- YOU SUDDENLY

RELIES THEY AREN'T

CONSTRUCTION CREWS.

THEY'RE THE WORDS OF AMOS

9 BEING MADE PHYSICAL, I

WILL REBUILD YOUR RUINS.

WHEN YOU REALIZE EVERY

PHYSICAL THING YOU SEE,

EVERY BRICK YOU SEE, EVERY

BUILDING YOU SEE BEING

BUILT IS GOD SPEAKING TO

THE WORLD SAYING, WAKE UP.

I'M DOING WHAT I SAID I

WOULD DO.

ARE YOU GOING TO BE PART

OF THIS PLAN OR ARE YOU

GOING TO FIGHT IT.

Reporter: AND FOR THE

FUTURE?

I THINK THERE WILL BE

MORE NEGATIVITY, AND THERE

WILL MORE PEOPLE REALIZING

GOD IS ON THE MOVE.

EVERYTHING, BUT

EVERYTHING, IS POSSIBLE.

Reporter: SCOTT ROSS

FOR CBN NEWS IN JERUSALEM.

Chris: THAT VICTORY

WAS 50 YEARS AGO.

BUT NOW WITH ALL OF THE

CHAOS SURROUNDING

JERUSALEM, MANY WONDER HOW

TO PRAY FOR ISRAEL.

HERE IS ONE ANSWER.

I WOULD LIKE TO ASK THE

LISTENING AUDIENCE TO PRAY

ON A REGULAR BASIS FOR THE

PEACE OF JERUSALEM.

BECAUSE JERUSALEM IS THE

EPICENTER OF THE UNIVERSE

IN THE MIND OF GOD.

NOT MINE, NOT AMERICA'S,

NOT RUSSIA'S, BUT IN THE

MIND OF GOD JERUSALEM IS

THE EPICENTER.

IT IS THE PLACE WHERE

ABRAHAM PLACED ISAAC ON

THE ALTER.

IT IS THE PLACE WHERE THE

FIRST TEMPLE AND THE

SECOND TEMPLE WERE BUILT.

IT IS THE PLACE WHERE

JESUS CHRIST IS GOING TO

SIT ON THE THRONE OF HIS

FATHER KING DAVID AND RULE

THE WORLD.

THERE IS A SUPERNATURAL

WAR RIGHT NOW THAT IS

RAGING, AND IT IS SOON

GOING TO RUPTURE INTO A

LITTLE WARFARE OVER THE

PEACE OF JERUSALEM.

THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS

WANTS THAT FOR THE

ANTI-CHRIST.

THE KING OF KINGS WANTS

THAT FOR CRING JESUS.

KING JESUS.

SO WHEN YOU'RE PRAYING FOR

PEACE IN JERUSALEM, YOU'RE

PRAYING FOR THE PEACE OF

THE WORLD, BUT YOU'RE ALSO

PRAYING FOR THE SOVEREIGN

WILL OF GOD TO DEFEND THE

JEWISH PEOPLE AND TO

DEFEND THE STATE OF

ISRAEL.

Chris: PLEASE

CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THE

PEACE OF JERUSALEM.

AND THAT VIDEO WAS AN

EXAMPLE OF WHAT YOU CAN

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL, AND
