THIS WEEK ON "JERUSALEM

DATELINE," A LOOK BACK AT

9/11, AND WHAT IMPACT IT

HAD ON ISRAELIS AND THE

WORLD.

KIDS GROW UP IN THE

REALITY OF THIS ISLAMIST

FASCIST TERRORISM.

Chris: PLUS AN

INDEPTH LOOK AT ISRAEL AS

A START-UP NATION.

THEY CREATE THE NEW

TECHNOLOGIES THAT ARE GOOD

FOR THE WORLD.

HELLO, AND WELCOME TO THIS

EDITION OF "JERUSALEM

DATELINE."

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL.

NORTH KOREA MAY BE

THOUSANDS OF MILES AWAY

FROM ISRAEL, BUT NORTH

KOREA'S NUCLEAR AND

MISSILE PROGRAM THREATENS

NOT JUST THE FAR EAST, BUT

ALSO THE MIDDLE EAST.

HERE IS CBN NEWS' DALE

HURD.

Reporter: AS TENSE AS

THE SITUATION WITH NORTH

KOREA HAS ALREADY BECOME,

IT COULD GET WORSE.

SOUTH KOREA BELIEVES THE

NORTH IS PLANNING ANOTHER

MISSILE LAUNCH WITHIN A

FEW DAYS.

THE TEST LAUNCH OF WHAT

SOME SUSPECT WILL BE AN

INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC

MISSILE CAPABLE OF HITTING

THE UNITED STATES COULD

COME THIS SATURDAY.

THAT'S THE ANNIVERSARY OF

NORTH KOREA'S FOUNDING,

AND LEADER KIM JONG-UN MAY

WANT TO SHOW OFF HIS

ABILITY TO TARGET THE U.S.

WITH NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

THE STAKES COULD NOT BE

HIGHER.

THE URGENCY IS NOW.

Reporter: AND AT A

SPECIAL MEETING OF THE

U.N. SECURITY COUNCIL ON

MONDAY, THE U.S. REPEATED

ITS WARNING TO NORTH

KOREA.

NUCLEAR POWERS

UNDERSTAND LIKE

RESPONSIBILITIES.

KIM JONG-UN SHOWS NO SUCH

UNDERSTANDING.

HIS ABUSIVE USE OF

MISSILES AND HIS NUCLEAR

THREATS SHOW HE IS BEGGING

FOR WAR.

Reporter: JAPAN,

WHICH HAD A NORTH KOREAN

MISSILE FLY THROUGH ITS

AIR SPACE TOLD THE

SECURITY COUNCIL SOMETHING

MUST BE DONE.

THE SECURITY COUNCIL

MUST ACT TO STOP NORTH

KOREA FROM CONTINUING DOWN

THIS ROAD.

Reporter: THEY

CONDUCTED LIVE-FIRE

EXERCISES AT SEA TODAY IN

A SHOW OF STRENGTH, AFTER

THE NORTH CONDUCTED ITS

BIGGEST NUCLEAR TEST EVER

OF A HYDROGEN BOMB.

ON MONDAY, SEOUL-USE USED

F-15s TO SIMULATE AN

ATTACK, TO STRONGLY WARN

THE NORTH OVER THE RECENT

DETONATION.

CHINA HAS BEGUN NUCLEAR

RADIATION EMERGENCY DRILLS

ALONG ITS BORDER WITH

NORTH KOREA.

PRESIDENT TRUMP ASKED IN

WASHINGTON IF HE WOULD

ATTACK NORTH KOREA SAID,

"WE'LL SEE."

RUSSIA, CHINA, AND THE

EUROPEAN UNION ALL CLAIM

THERE IS NO MILITARY

SOLUTION TO THE CRISIS,

BUT ALL HAVE CONDEMNED

NORTH KOREA.

THE PATH UNDERTAKEN BY

NORTH KOREA IS DANGEROUS,

IRRESPONSIBLE, AND

ILLEGAL.

Reporter: NO U.S.

MILITARY ACTION APPEARS

EMINENT, AND NIKKI HALEY

IS COMING FOR THE

STRONGEST POSSIBLE

SANCTIONS AGAINST NORTH

KOREA AT THE U.N.

WHILE THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION LOOKS INTO

PENALTIES AGAINST NATIONS

THAT DO BUSINESS WITH THE

NORTH.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

Chris: PEOPLE IN THE

U.S. AND HERE IN ISRAEL

WILL COMMEMORATE 9/11.

IT HAS BEEN 16 YEARS SINCE

THAT ISLAMIC TERROR ATTACK

STRUCK THE HEART OF

AMERICA AND CHANGED THE

WORLD.

ISRAELIS KNEW JUST HOW IT

FELT.

AND SOME UNDERSTOOD IT WAS

A DECLARATION OF WAR.

HERE IS A STORY WE DID

SEVERAL YEARS AGO, BUT WE

THOUGHT IT IS STILL

REMARKABLY RELEVANT.

JULIE STAAL BROUGHT US

THAT STORY.

Julie: ISRAEL WAS A

YEAR INTO ITS OWN WAR ON

TERROR IN SEPTEMBER 2001.

PALESTINIAN TERRORISTS

WERE AIMING GUNS AT

PASSING MOTORISTS, AND

SUICIDE BOMBERS WERE

BLOWING THEMSELVES UP IN

PUBLIC PLACES.

AND WE WERE ACTUALLY

BUYING OUR PLANE TICKETS

IN MANHATTAN ON THE SAME

EXACT DAY IN AUGUST, WHEN

THE SABRO PIZZA BLEW UP

HERE IN JERUSALEM.

MY MOTHER SAID DON'T BAK

TO JERUSALEM.

IT IS VERY DANGEROUS.

Julie: MORE THAN 170

ISRAELIS AND OTHERS HAD

BEEN KILLED IN PALESTINIAN

TERROR ATTACKS IN THE YEAR

BEFORE SEPTEMBER 11th.

15 PEOPLE HAD BEEN KILLED,

INCLUDING SEVEN CHILDREN

AND AN AMERICAN WOMAN.

10 YEARS AGO, THIS WAS A

SABARO PIZZA PLEASANT, BUT

WHEN A SUICIDE BOMBER

STRUCK HERE, MANY WONDERED

IF IT WASN'T A DUO STRIKE,

KILLING ISRAELIS IN AN

AMERICAN FOOD CHAIN.

A MONTH LATER IT WAS

CLEAR: AMERICA WAS ALSO

UNDER ATTACK.

THIS IS THE BEGINNING

OF WAR.

AFTER THE ATTACK ON THE

HEART OF THE UNITED

STATES, SYMBOLIC ATTACK,

IT WILL BEGIN WAR.

Julie: CBN NEWS ASKED

ISRAELIS ABOUT THAT DAY.

RACHEL WENT INTO LABOR ON

SEPTEMBER 11, AND THEN SHE

HEARD THE NEWS.

ABSOLUTELY SURREAL.

ME AND MY HUSBAND ARE BORN

IN NEW YORK.

WE TOTALLY DIDN'T BELIEVE

IT.

IT WAS, LIKE,

UNBELIEVABLE.

AND ALL OF THE LABOR

STOPPED, AND MY BABY DID

NOT COME OUT ON 9/11.

I WAS IN SHOCK.

I GOT INTO MY VAN, AND

I DROVE TO MY FRIEND'S

HOUSE, WHO LIVE ON A

MOUNTAINTOP OVERLOOKING

MANHATTAN.

AND I WATCHED THE TOWER

BURN.

WE WERE IN DISBELIEF

BECAUSE A WEEK BEFORE WE

WERE AT THEIR HOUSE

ENJOYING THE VIEW, AND NOW

IT WAS A FIERY MESS, AND

ALL OF A SUDDEN THE TOWER

FELL RIGHT BEFORE MY EYES.

AT THAT MOMENT, I KNEW THE

WORLD HAD CHANGED.

I THINK IT BROUGHT THE

REALITY OF ISLAMOFAFASCIST

TERRORISM TO THE REST OF

THE WORLD.

Reporter: HE SAID

AFTER 9/11, al-QAEDA

TRAINED ITS SIGHTS ON

ISRAEL.

THE HAMAS SUCCESS WITH

THE INTIFADA, al-QAEDA

DECIDED TO PUT THEIR

PROBLEM AT THE HEAD OF

THEIR PRIORITIES AND

ATTACK ISRAELI AND JEWISH

TARGETS.

Reporter: OVER ALL,

CARMON SAYS THE WEST HAS

HAD SUCCESS IN QUELLING

MAJOR TERROR ATTACKS.

THE QUESTION FOR THE

FUTURE, HE SAYS, IS

WHETHER THE UPRISINGS IN

THE ARAB WORLD THIS YEAR

WILL BRING MORE ISLAMIC

VIOLENCE INTO THE REGION.

Chris: TO TALK MORE

ABOUT THE IMPACT OF 9/11

AND WHAT MAY HAVE CHANGED,

OR HAS NOT SINCE THEN, I

TALKED WITH JULIE STAAL,

AND JOHN WAGGI IN OUR

STUDIO.

JULIE AND JOHN, GREAT TO

BE WITH YOU TO TALK ABOUT

THESE EVENTS.

9/11, LOOKING BACK, AND

ALSO WHERE IS HAPPENING

TODAY.

JULIE, YOU DID THAT STORY,

AND IT IS KIND OF AN

EMOTIONAL ONE FOR MANY OF

US.

MY SON USED TO GO TO

SABORO'S FOR LUNCH, AND

WHAT A BLESSING HE WASN'T

THERE AND A TRAGEDY FOR SO

MANY PEOPLE.

YOU MENTIONED BY ELI

CARMON, AND WHY DOES THAT

HAPPEN TODAY?

Julie: HE SAID HE

KNEW THE MINUTE HE SAW

9/11, IT WAS A DECLARATION

OF WAR.

AND IN THE LAST 16 YEARS,

THERE IS ARE DIFFERENT

ARENAS, BUT IT HAS

DEFINITELY BEEN A WAR

AGAINST THE WEST, YOU

KNOW, THE TERROR ATTACKS.

FOR YEARS ISRAEL HAD

WARNED AND WARNED AND

WARNED THE WEST ABOUT

DIFFERENT THINGS, ABOUT

THE PILOTS AND THE

COCKPITS AND AIRPLANES.

PEOPLE, I DON'T KNOW HOW

WELL THEY LISTENED OR

DIDN'T LISTEN, BUT THEY

DIDN'T TAKE HEED.

BUT WHAT STARTS WITH THE

JEWS NEVER FINISHES WITH

THEM.

IT ALWAYS SPREADS OUT.

SO IT IS NOT JUST AGAINST

ISRAEL, AND WE'VE SEEN

THAT HAPPEN OVER THE LAST

16 YEARS.

Chris: MANY PEOPLE

SAY ISRAEL IS SORT OF LIKE

THE CANARY IN THE MINE.

WHAT HAPPENS IN ISRAEL

WILL HAPPEN AROUND THE

WORLD.

PRESIDENT BUSH AT THAT

TIME MADE A FAMOUS SPEECH

AFTER 9/11.

HE SAID THE ACCESS OF

EVIL, NORTH KOREA, IRAQ,

AND IRAN, AND WHY DOES

THAT MATTER TODAY?

HE IDENTIFIED THAT IN A

STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS

TO CONGRESS RIGHT AFTER

9/11, JUST A FEW MONTHS

AFTER.

IN DOING THAT, HE REALLY

WAS PROPHETIC IN A WAY,

AND NOBODY PAYS MUCH

ATTENTION TO THAT SPEECH

ANYMORE.

HE NAMED ONE OF THE THREE

EVIL.

IRAQ WAS TAKEN CARE OF IN

2003, BUT IRAQ IS NOT ONE

OF THOSE PROBLEMS RIGHT

NOW.

IRAN AND NORTH KOREA ARE

BOTH ON THE VIRGE OF GOING

NUCLEAR, AND NOTHING HAS

BEEN DONE.

IN THE 15 YEARS SINCE

9/11, IT'S JUST AS IF THEY

WEREN'T AN ACCESS OF EVIL.

AND BUSH SAID SOMETHING IN

THAT SPEECH -- HE SAID, IN

ANY OF THESE CASES, IRAQ,

IRAN, AND NORTH KOREA, THE

PRICE OF INDIFFERENCE

WOULD BE CATASTROPHIC.

AND ISN'T THAT WHAT WE'RE

SEEING, IS INDIFFERENCE?

OR AT LEAST TRYING TO

MINIMIZE THE DANGER THAT

IRAN, AS A STATE-SPONSORED

TERRORIST, POSSESS TO THE

REST OF THE WORLD,

INCLUDING THE UNITED

STATES AND ISRAEL.

Chris: AND WE SEE

RIGHT NOW NORTH KOREA

ACTUALLY BEING NUCLEAR.

TESTING A HYDROGEN

BOMB.

Chris: AND WITH A

MISSILE, BALLISTIC

MISSILE, THAT COULD REACH

THE UNITED STATES OF

AMERICA.

SO WHAT BUSH SAID IN

2002 MAY COME TO PASS.

AND IT WOULD BE

CATASTROPHIC THAT THE

WORLD DIDN'T ACT AND THAT

THE WORLD REMAINED

INDIFFERENT.

Chris: CARMON SAID,

WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN

AFTER THE ARAB SPRING?

WE SEE THAT IT REALLY

HASN'T LED TO PEACE, LIKE

SOME PEOPLE THOUGHT.

IN JUST A FEW DAYS AGO,

ISRAEL ATTACKED A SYRIAN

CHEMICAL PLANT IN SYRIA.

Julie: THERE WAS NO

CONFIRMATION THAT IT WAS

ISRAEL, BUT IF ISRAEL DID

DO THAT, IT WOULDN'T BE

THE FIRST TIME.

WHAT IS THE FIRST TIME IS

THAT IT WAS NOT JUST A

WAREHOUSE.

IT WAS A PLACE WHERE THEY

ACTUALLY DEVELOPED

WEAPONS, AND NOT JUST

CHEMICALS, BUT OTHER

WEAPONS, MISSILES,

ROCKETS, FOR USE AGAINST

ISRAEL, PROBABLY, OR THEIR

OWN PEOPLE.

SO PROBABLY ISRAEL DID DO

IT, BUT WE NEED TO HEAR A

CONFIRMATION ON THAT.

Chris: WE ARE ON THE

VIRGE OF CATASTROPHE,

CERTAINLY WITH NORTH

KOREA, AND NOW MAYBE WITH

IRAN, ITS GROWING

PRESENCE, AS THE SYRIAN

CIVIL WAR SEEMS TO BE

WINDING DOWN.

ISIS SEEMS TO BE DEFEATED,

AND IRAN SEEMS TO BE

FILLING THAT VACUUM WITH

DIRE CONSEQUENCES FOR

ISRAEL.

THEY ARE.

AND IRAN'S PARTNER, ASSAD

IN SYRIA, HAS ALMOST

COMPLETELY REGAINED WHAT

HE LOST IN FIGHTING THE

SYRIAN REBELS.

AND NOW WE'RE TALKING

ABOUT ON ISRAEL'S

DOORSTEP, AN IRANIAN

MILITARY BASE, AN

AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE

UNITED STATES AND RUSSIA

THAT SAYS A CEASE-FIRE IN

SYRIA COULD ALLOW THAT TO

HAPPEN.

SO YOU PUT ALL OF THESE

THINGS TOGETHER, AND RED

LINE AFTER RED LINE AFTER

RED LINE IS BEING CROSSED,

AND YOU WONDER HOW LONG

ISRAEL CAN STAND -- EVEN

IF IT HAS TO STAND ON ITS

OWN, HOW LONG THEY WILL

TOLERATE THIS KIND OF

ENCROACHMENT.

Chris: AND ONE OTHER

THING WE'RE SEEING AT THE

CONGRESS, THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION MAY BE

DESERTFYINDE-CERTIFYING IRAN

AGREEMENT.

JULIE AND JOHN, GREAT TO

BE WITH YOU.

THANKS FOR YOUR EXPERTISE.

JOHN, GREAT TO HAVE YOU

HERE IN PERSON IN

JERUSALEM.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR

NEXT VISIT.

ALWAYS GREAT TO BE

HERE.

Chris: COMING UP, AN

Chris: ISRAEL IS

KNOWN AS THE START-UP

NATION, FOR THE NUMBER OF

NEW AND INNOVATIVE

COMPANIES BEGUN IN THE

JEWISH STATE.

AND ACCORDING TO A NEW

REPORT, TEL AVIV IS

BECOMING THE START-UP

CITY, AS A RESEARCH AND

DEVELOPMENT HUB FOR SOME

CORPORATE GIANTS AS VISA,

AMAZON, AND BARCLAYS.

ONE PERSON AT THE MIDDLE

OF THE BOOM IS JOHN THAN

MEDVED.

WE TALK WITH HIM AS HIS

JERUSALEM HEADQUARTERS.

JONATHAN, THANKS FOR

JOINING US ON CBN NEWS.

APPRECIATE IT.

IT IS GREAT TO BE HERE,

CHRIS.

Chris: WHAT IS OUR

CROWD?

OUR CROWD IS THE

WORLD'S LARGEST EQUITY

CROWD FUNDING MARKET.

WHAT THAT MEANS IS

POTENTIAL INVESTORS CAN GO

TO A WEBSITE OR MOBILE APP

AND DISCOVER AND FIND

INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES

IN PRIVATE COMPANIES.

THE AVERAGE INVESTOR SAYS,

WAIT A MINUTE, I WANT TO

GET STARTED IN A CROWD

FUND EARLY.

AND WE NEGOTIATE TERMS

WITH THE COMPANY, AND JOIN

WITH OTHER VENTURE CAPITAL

FUNDS, AND THEN WE INVITE

THE MEMBERS OF THE CROWD

TO JOIN WITH THE GENERAL

PARTNER OF OUR CROWD AND

TO FUND THESE COMPANIES.

Chris: IS THIS

OPENING UP ISRAEL TO A

WHOLE NEW --

ABSOLUTELY.

RIGHT NOW THE MAJORITY OF

OUR FUNDING IS ACTUALLY

COMING FROM ASIA.

THERE ARE THOUSANDS UPON

THOUSANDS OF INVESTORS WHO

ARE HEARING THE STORY OF

WHAT IS GOING ON HERE IN

ISRAEL, AND THEY SAY, I

WANT IN.

I WANT TO BE INVOLVED IN

THIS INCREDIBLE CREATION

OF WEALTH, AND ALSO THE

CREATION OF NEW

TECHNOLOGY.

AND TO SEE NOT JUST ISRAEL

SURVIVING, BUT ISRAEL IS

THRIVING, THAT ISRAEL IS

LEADING THE WORLD IN SO

MANY TECHNOLOGIES, WHETHER

IT IS AGRICULTURE

TECHNOLOGY OR ROBOTICS OR

DRONES -- THIS IS A

REVELATION.

EVERYONE KNOWS THE STORY

THAT THE RED SEA SPLIT.

BUT WHAT THEY DON'T --

WHAT MANY PEOPLE DON'T

REALIZE IS THERE WAS A

GENTLEMAN OF THE TRIBE OF

JUDAH, AND WHAT WE'RE

TAUGHT IS THAT NOKSHON

WALKED INTO THE WATER

BEFORE IT SPLIT UP TO HIS

NECK.

IT WAS ONLY AT THAT MOMENT

WHEN HE SHOWED THAT

LEADERSHIP THAT GOD

COMPLETED THE MIRACLE AND

OPENED THE SEA.

AND TODAY ISRAEL LEAD THE

WORLS THEWORLD IN THIS KIND OF

ACTION IN CREATING THE NEW

TECHNOLOGIES THAT ARE

CREATING THE WORLD.

Chris: DO YOU SEE IT

A CATALYST?

PEOPLE SAY HOW DO YOU

KEEP TRACK OF IT ALL?

WHAT DO I DO FOR A LIVING?

I SIT AROUND AND LISTEN TO

PEOPLE TELL ME THEIR

DREAMS.

I HAVE THE ABILITY TO

HOPEFULLY HELP THEM MAKE

IT COME TRUE.

I CAN'T MAKE IT COME TRUE,

BUT I CAN GO THEN AND

RAISE MONEY THROUGH THE

OUR CROWD PLATFORM, AND

HAND THEM A CHECK, WHICH

IN MANY CASES IS MILLIONS

OF DOLLARS, SO THEY CAN

START TO DEVELOP THE

PRODUCT.

WE CELEBRATE THAT

ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT OF

THOSE NOKSHONS WHO WALK

INTO THE WATER.

IT IS A LITTLE SCARY.

Chris: WOULD YOU SAY

THIS IS PERHAPS A

FULFILLMENT OF THE

PROMISE, TOO, TALKING

ABOUT IT IN THE BOOK OF

EXODUS.

IN THE BOOK OF

DEUTERONOMY, IT SAYS THE

LORD GIVES YOU THE POWER

TO GET WEALTH.

ABSOLUTELY.

IN OUR TRADITION, JUDAISM,

WE HAVE NO CELEBRATION OF

POVERTY.

YOU'RE TOLD TO MITIGATE

IT.

YOUR OBLIGATED TO GIVE TO

CHARITY AND YOUR OBLIGATED

TO TITHE.

BUT BUSINESS PEOPLE ARE

PARTNERS WITH GOD.

THEY'RE CREATING WEALTH.

THEY'RE CREATING JOBS.

THEY'RE HELPING MOVE

TECHNOLOGY FORWARD.

AND WE HAVE TO CELEBRATE

THAT PART OF BUSINESS.

BUSINESS NEEDS TO BE

COMPASSIONATE AND CARING.

FOR EXAMPLE, OUR COMPANIES

HERE WHEN THEY JOIN OUR

CROWD, THEY JOIN TUMERA,

WHICH MEANS TO GIVE BACK.

AND WE PROVIDE, THROUGH

OUR COMPANIES, A STOCK

OPTION PLAN WHICH GIVES

BACK TO THE COMMUNITY.

SO WHEN THE COMPANY

ACTUALLY REALIZES ITS

DREAMS AND GETS SOLD FOR,

GOD WILLING, A BILLION

DOLLARS, THERE IS MONEY

THAT ROLLS BACK INTO THE

COMMUNITY.

Chris: WHEN YOU SPEAK

TO PEOPLE, WHAT'S THE MAIN

MESSAGE YOU WANT TO BRING

TO THAT?

ISRAEL, FIRST OF ALL,

LOVES AND RESPECTS OUR

CHRISTIAN PARTNERS AND OUR

CHRISTIAN BROTHERS.

AND THE GROUPS WHO ARE

WORKING SO ACTIVELY TO

SUPPORT AND PROTECT

ISRAEL, YOUR BLESSINGS AND

YOUR PRAYERS AND YOUR

ACTIONS MEAN A LOT TO US.

YOU KNOW, YOU SEE GROUPS

OF TENS OF THOUSANDS,

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS --

THERE ARE MILLIONS OF

CHRISTIANS -- COMING TO

THE LAND, TO NOT JUST

VISIT THE HOLY PLACES, BUT

TO EXPERIENCE THE MODERN

MIRACLE OF JEWISH LIFE

REBORN.

THE FACT THAT ISRAEL IS

OUT THERE LEADING THE

WORLD IN TERMS OF

INNOVATION, THAT SHOULDN'T

SURPRISE ANY CHRISTIANS.

IT WOULD BE A SURPRISE IF

IT WEREN'T LEADING THE

WORLD.

THIS IS THE FULFILLMENT OF

GOD'S PROMISE.

AND TO SIT TOGETHER,

WHETHER IT IS THROUGH THE

VEHICLE OF TELEVISION OR

AT OTHER EVENTS, I FIND IT

INVIGORATING AND EXCITING

AND WELCOME, WELCOMING YOU

AND YOUR COMMUNITY TO WORK

TOGETHER AND REALLY MAKE

THE WORLD A MUCH BETTER

PLACE.

Chris: I APPRECIATE

IT JONATHAN.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

> UP NEXT, A LOOK INTO A

Chris: AN ISRAELI

INNOVATION IN THE MEDICAL

FIELD COULD REVOLUTIONIZE

STEM CELL RESEARCH.

IT WOULD INCREASE STEM

CELL PRODUCTION, AND THAT

COULD PUT PATIENTS AROUND

THE WORLD IN TOUCH WITH

LIFE-SAVING TREATMENTS.

JULIE STAAL HAS THAT

STORY.

Julie: AROUND THE

WORLD PEOPLE ARE LIVING

LONGER.

I PEOPLE BORN IN THE

21st CENTURY WILL HAVE A

MEDIAN LIFESTYLE OF MORE

THAN 100 YEARS.

IT BRINGS NOW CHALLENGES.

Julie: THIS DOCTOR

SAYS HIS COMPANY CAN HELP

MEET THOSE CHALLENGES.

SO THE 21st CENTURY

MEDICINE IS CALLED

REGENERATIVE MEDICINE.

AND THE IDEA ABOUT

REGENERATION IS WE MOVE

AWAY FROM FIXING, WITH ALL

OF THE ADVERSE EFFECTS

THAT ARE THERE FOR THE

CHEMOTHERAPY AND THE

ANTIBIOTICS, TO REPLACING.

Julie: STEM CELLS,

THE BODY'S BUILDING

BLOCKS, CAN PROVIDE AN

ANSWER BECAUSE HEALING IS

THEIR MAIN PURPOSE.

THAT'S THE WAY WE WERE

CREATED.

WE CONSTANTLY HEAL

OURSELVES THROUGH THE STEM

CELLS.

THEY SENSE THAT.

THEY KNOW HOW TO GET TO

THE AREA WHERE CELLS ARE

DYING.

FOR THEM, THAT'S A SIGNAL

FOR ACTIVITY BECAUSE THEY

GO THERE, THEY FIND OUT

WHAT IS MISSING, AND THEY

BECOME THAT TISSUE.

Julie: WHILE THE

MEDICAL WORLD SEES THE

POTENTIAL, AN URGENT NEED

REMAINS FOR ENOUGH STEM

CELLS TO CONDUCT MASS

RESEARCH THAT WILL LEAD TO

NEW TREATMENT.

HE SAYS ONLY SELECT CAN

PROVIDE THE ENABLING TOOL.

WE ARE THE FIRST ONE

WHO TOOK THIS BIOLOGICAL

APPROACH AND TRANSLATED IT

INTO A COMPANY WITH

PRODUCTS AND BUSINESS.

Julie: THUS FAR,

TECHNOLOGY HAS BEEN

INCAPABLE OF ISOLATING

STEM CELLS IN A

COST-EFFICIENT MANNER.

THE PROCESS BEGINS IN

STERILE LABS LIKE THIS,

WITH FRESH OR FROZEN STEM

CELLS.

THEY'RE SEPARATED, I,

INCUBATED, AND RUN THROUGH

A CENTRIFUGE, ALL TO GET

ONE UNIT.

WE TOOK THIS WHOLE

INFRASTRUCTURE AND

CONDENSED IT.

Julie: INSIDE THE

BAG, A MESH MEMBRANE

MIMICS THE PROCESS,

BASICALLY TELLING MATURE

CELLS TO DIE, WHILE MOVING

TO AC VAIL ACTIVATE THE

MULTIPLICATION OF STEM

CELLS WITH THE HEALING.

TAKE THE CELLS OF THE

DONOR, OR THE PATIENT

HIMSELF, AND PUT IT IN AND

LEAVE IT FOR TWO HOURS OF

INCUBATION, AND THAT'S IT.

WE SHOW IT CAN WORK ON

FALT, ON BLOOD, ANY ADULT

TISSUE.

Julie: ACCORDING TO

THE DOCTOR, PRODUCTS ON

THE MARKET NOW CAN TAKE

FIVE OR SIX WEEKS TO GROW

IN A LAB AND CAN HAVE SIDE

EFFECTS.

BUT HE ESTIMATES SELECT

BAGS WILL COST LESS THAN

1% OF WHAT TREATMENTS COST

TODAY AND BE SAFER TO USE.

JULIE STAAL, CBN NEWS, FAR

SABBA, ISRAEL.

Chris: COMING UP,

Chris: LIKE CHILDREN

IN MANY PARTS OF THE

WORLD, ISRAELI CHILDREN

ARE BACK AT SCHOOL.

BURBUT BEFORE THEY RETURNED,

THE ISRAELI POLICE HELD AN

EXHIBITION, SHOWING HOW

THEY PROTECT THE PUBLIC.

*

*

Chris: THAT'S AN

EXAMPLE OF WHAT YOU CAN

FIND ON OUR SOCIAL MEDIA

CHANNELS.

SO PLEASE CHECK US OUT AN

Facebook, TWITTER, AND

INSTAGRAM OR YouTube.

WE WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A

SHOUT OUT TO THOSE

WATCHING US ON SUN

BROADCAST IN ARIZONA.

I'M CHRIS MITCHELL, WE

LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU

NEXT TIME ON "JERUSALEM

DATELINE."
