TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH,"

EGYPTIAN POLICE PUSHED BACK

PROTESTERS WHY SOME FEAR IT IS E

GYP'S ARAB SPRING AND IT IS

OVER.

PRESIDENT AND REPUBLICANS AT

A STALEMATE.

SOME SUGGESTING LETTING THE

ECONOMY GO OVER THE EDGE.

PLUS PANIC AT A PUBLIC

SCHOOL.

EXPOSURE OF DEADLY GAS FORCES

EVACUATION OF HUNDREDS OF SCHOOL

KIDS.

NOW PARENTS ARE DEMANDING

ANSWERS.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT

MOHAMMED MORSI FORCED TO FLEE

HIS HOME.

GOOD EVENING I AM LEE WEB.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

POLICE FIRE TEAR GAS THREATENING

TO STORM THE GROUNDS OF THE

PALACE.

TENS OF THOUSANDS ANGRY OVER THE

ATTEMPTED POWER GRAB.

WHEN SOME TRIED TO REMOVE THE

BARBED WIRE BARRIER, AT LEAST 10

PEOPLE WORRIED.

MORE AND MORE FEARFUL THAT MORSI

WILL BECOME A NEW DICTATOR.

EGYPT DIVIDED AND IN CRISIS.

TO PROTEST MORSI'S DECREES, THE

PAPERS RAN HEAD LINES THAT SAY

NO TO DICTATORSHIP.

OBJECTION TO THE OBSTACLES IN

THE EGYPTIAN CONSTITUTION THAT

LIMIT FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

LAST WEEK EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT

MORSI RUSHED THROUGH A

CONSTITUTION WRITTEN MOSTLY BY

ISLAMISTS.

THEY OBJECTED SINCE IT FAILED TO

PROTECT WOMEN'S RIGHTS, MINORITY

RIGHTS AND GIVES MUSLIM CLERICS

UNPRECEDENTED POWER TO IMPLEMENT

SHARIA LAW.

HE GAVE HIMSELF IMMUNITY TO

JUDICIAL REVIEW.

THAT LED TO A CRISIS OF EGYPT'S

JUDGES THAT WENT ON STRIKE.

FOR THE JUDICIARY TO SUSPEND

ITS DAILY WORK IS STRONG AND

CLEAR MESSAGE.

WE HAVE NEVER SEEN MEMBERS OF

THE CONSTITUTIONAL COURT BANNED

TO PROCEED WITH SESSIONS AND

REVIEW CASES.

THAT PRESENTS A HUGE PROBLEM

THAT A PUBLIC OF EGYPT HAS BEEN

RAPED.

MANY EGYPTIANS WONDER IF THEY

TRADED ONE DICTATOR FOR ANOTHER.

WITHIN SIX MONTHS FROM THE

DATE MORSI WAS SWORN IN, IT TOOK

ALL THE POSSIBLE POWERS OF THE

COUNTRY INTO ITS HANDS.

FORMER ISRAELI AMBASSADOR

SAID MORSI AND MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD HAVE UNITED THOSE

THAT FEEL THE REVOLUTION HAS

BEEN HIGH HI JACKED.

NOW DICTATORSHIPS -- THEY

KEEP DIGESTING THEM.

MAZEL WARNS IT COULD LEAD TO

VIOLENCE AND RELATIVE SILENCE OF

U.S.

LAST TWO OR THREE

DECLARATIONS PUBLISHED FROM THE

WHITE HOUSE AND DEPARTMENT OF

STATE WERE THAT THEY ARE GIVING

SUPPORT TO MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD.

U.S. IN THE REGION COULD BE

DEALING WITH THIS PROBLEM FOR A

LONG TIME.

MAZEL'S ADVISE.

[LAUGHTER].

IT SHOULD FINISH IN A WAY THAT

DEMOCRACY WILL PREVAIL.

CHRIS MITCHELL, CBN NEWS,

JERUSALEM.

THE ANTIMISSILE SYSTEM DURING

1991 GULF WAR IS HEADING TO

TURKEY.

NATO IS DEPLOYING PATRIOT

MISSILES.

TURKEY IS A NATO MEMBER.

NATO GENERAL SECRETARY ANDERS

FOGH RASMUSSEN SAYS THEY STAND

WITH TURKEY IN STRONG

SOLIDARITY.

ANYONE CONSIDERING AN ATTACK

AGAINST TURKEY SHOULDN'T THINK

ABOUT IT.

JUST A WEEK AFTER THE

INTERNATIONAL BODY GRANTED THE

PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY NON-STATE

HOOD STATUS AND WANTS ISRAEL TO

JOIN NON-PROLIFERATION TREATY.

ISRAEL'S ENEMIES WANT TO SEE IT

NEUTRALIZED AS THEY WORK TO

BUILD THEIR OWN NUCLEAR

PROGRAMS.

LITTLE MOVEMENT ON CAPITOL

HILL WHEN IT COMES TO THE

NATION'S FISCAL CLIFF.

DALE HURD REPORTERS IF ANYTHING

THERE IS A GROWING DIVIDE

BETWEEN KEY LEADERS.

REPORTER: AS THE CLOCK TICKS

DOWN ON THE SO-CALLED FISCAL

CLIFF, THINGS HAVE GOTTEN CHILLY

BETWEEN PRESIDENT OBAMA AND

HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER.

THE SPEAKER DIDN'T DO THE

TRADITIONAL RECEIVING LINE AND

DIDN'T TAKE A PHOTO WITH THE

PRESIDENT.

WHITE HOUSE HAS BEEN DEMANDING

SPECIFICS FROM THE REPUBLICANS.

THE COUNTER PROPOSAL OFFERS 2.2

TRILLION IN DEFICIT DEDUCTION

INCLUDING 1.2 IN SPENDING CUTS

AND 800 BILLION IN NEW TAX

REVENUE.

REPUBLICANS ARE SO INTENT ON

WILLING TO SACRIFICE MIDDLE

CLASS FAMILIES. PRESIDENT

IGNORED COMMENTS.

WHITE HOUSE PLAN PUT OUT LAST

WEEK CALLED FOR 1.6 TRILLION IN

TAX INCREASES AND NO LIMIT ON

HOW MUCH THE GOVERNMENT CAN

BORROW.

THE PRESSURE IS ON THE WHITE

HOUSE TO COME UP WITH A PLAN

THAT CAN PASS BOTH THE HOUSE AND

SENATE.

TODAY THE PRESIDENT MET WITH

BIPARTISAN GOVERNORS THAT SAID

SOMETHING MUST BE DONE TO AVOID

THE FISCAL CLIFF.

MANY ORDINARY AMERICANS LIKE

DEBORAH PAGE ARE FED UP.

SHE GOT ANGRY OVER THE WEEKEND

WATCHING THE TALK SHOWS.

IF I WAS WORKING THE WAY THE

CONGRESS AND PRESIDENT WERE

WORKING, I WOULD LOSE MY JOB.

PAGE IS STARTING A PETITION

THAT WOULD HALT ALL PAYCHECKS

FOR MEMBERS OF CONGRESS.

KANSAS REPUBLICAN TIM

CHILLSCAMP, AN OUTSPOKEN CRITIC

OF HOUSE LEADERSHIP FOR NOT

PUSHING TO CUT MORE SPENDING.

REPUBLICAN LEADERS REMOVED HIM

FROM PRIME COMMITTEE POSTS.

THEY CALL THE REMOVAL VAN

VINDICTIVE.

MY DISTRICT REPRESENTED 151

YEARS SINCE KANSAS BECAME A

STATE.

THERE IS NOT A LONG LIST OF

FOLKS THAT WANT THIS JOB.

ONLY A DOZEN FARMERS IN THE

ENTIRE U.S. HOUSE.

THEY TAKE THE ONE GUY THAT

WANTED TO BE ON THERE AND HAD A

BACKGROUND AND PULL HIM OFF THAT

COMMITTEE FOR NO OTHER REASON TO

PUNISH HIM ON PERCEIVED

DISAGREEMENTS ON LEADERSHIP.

CBN NEWS CONTACTED SPEAKER

BOEHNER.

THE REPUBLICAN STEERING

COMMITTEE MAKES DECISIONS ON A

RANGE OF FACTORS.

STATE INSPECTORS ARE STILL

SEARCHING FOR A CAUSE OF A

CARBON MONOXIDE LEAK.

CHILDREN ARE AT DIFFERENT

SCHOOLS TODAY.

PARENTS ARE DEMANDING ANSWERS

AFTER HEARING HOW BAD IT WAS.

ONE BY ONE STUDENTS BEGAN

RAISING HANDS COMPLAINING OF

HEADACHES, NAUSEA, DIZZINESS.

IT HURTED RIGHT HERE BAD.

MY TEACHER WAS TALKING ABOUT

THE PROJECTS AND WE PASSED OUT.

WITHIN AN HOUR, FINCH

ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WAS IN A STATE

OF PANIC.

THE PRINCIPAL ORDERED THEM TO

EVACUATE, PARAMEDICS WORKED TO

EVALUATE THE SICK CHILDREN.

WHEN I CAME BACK TO THE

SCHOOL, MY BABY IS AT THE

HOSPITAL.

HE HAS BRONCHITIS AND ASTHMA.

THEY WOULDN'T GO CHECK FOR ME.

FIREFIGHTERS DETERMINED IT

WAS A MASS CASE OF CARBON

MONOXIDE POISONING REACHING 1700

PARTS PER MILLION.

PEOPLE SHOULD LIMIT THEIR

EXPOSURE TO 50 PARTS.

IT WOULD ONLY TAKE 3 SECONDS

TO PASS OUT.

CARBON MONOXIDE IS AN

ODORLESS GAS THAT CAN CAUSE

SUDDEN ILLNESS AND EVEN DEATH.

FINCH WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL

NECESSARY REPAIRS ARE MADE.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS.

FLU SEASON IS OFF TO AN EARLY

START.

WE ARE TOLD IT COULD BE A BAD

ONE.

IT USUALLY BEGINS IN JANUARY.

ACCORDING TO THE CENTERS FOR

DISEASE CONTROL, FIVE STATES

HAVE WIDESPREAD FLU.

EXPERTS SAY THE GOOD NEWS THIS

YEAR'S VACCINE IS A GOOD MATCH.

FLU VACCINATIONS RECOMMENDED FOR

EVERYONE SIX MONTHS AND OLDER.

LORIE JOHNSON IS HERE TO TALK

TO US.

SO MANY PEOPLE CHOOSE NOT TO GET

THE VACCINE.

THIS IS NOT A SPIRITUAL

ISSUE.

NOTHING IN THE BIBLE ABOUT FLU

SHOTS.

THERE IS DISAGREEMENT.

THAT IS OKAY.

THIS MORNING ON "700 CLUB," PAT

ROBERTSON AND TERRY MEEUWSEN:

SAID THEY WILL NOT BE GETTING A

FLU SHOT.

I ON THE OTHER HAND AM A HUGE

PROPONENT.

I ESPECIALLY MADE SURE TO DO SO

WHEN I WAS PREGNANT WITH BOTH OF

MY CHILDREN BECAUSE IF YOU ARE

PREGNANT AND GET THE FLU, THAT

COULD HARM THE BABY.

SOME PEOPLE SAY WHEN THEY GET

THE FLU SHOT THEY FEEL LIKE THEY

GET THE FLU.

THE FLU SHOT DOESN'T GET

INTO YOUR SYSTEM FOR TWO WEEKS.

SOMETIMES PEOPLE GET THE FLU

WITHIN THE FIRST TWO WEEKS

BEFORE THEY ARE PROTECTED.

FLU MANUFACTURERS HAVE TO MAKE

THE FLU VACCINE SIX MONTHS AHEAD

OF TIME AND HAVE TO GUESS WHICH

STRAINS OF THE FLU ARE GOING TO

BE CIRCULATING SIX MONTHS LATER.

THIS YEAR IT IS A PRETTY GOOD

MATCH.

SOME YEARS THERE IS A STRAIN

THAT PEOPLE PICK UP ON THAT

WASN'T IN THE VACCINE.

WE SAW THAT YEARS AGO WITH THE

SWINE FLU.

HOW MANY PEOPLE ACTUALLY DO

DIE EVERY YEAR FROM THE FLU?

IT IS ABOUT 4,000 TO 40,000.

THE REASON THERE IS SUCH A

DISCREPANCY, ON DEATH

CERTIFICATES IT IS NOT LISTED

THE FLU CAUSED THIS.

FOR EXAMPLE, THE FLU CAN LEAD TO

PNEUMONIA AND PNEUMONIA CAN KILL

YOU.

YOU WOULDN'T HAVE DIED IF YOU

HADN'T GOTTEN THE FLU.

IF YOU HAVE CONGENITAL HEART

FAILURE, YOU WOULDN'T HAVE DIED

IF YOU HADN'T CAUGHT THE FLU.

MOST DOCTORS SAY THE BENEFITS

FAR OUTWEIGH THE RISKS.

GOOD ADVISE, THANKS, LORI.

LEE?

IMMIGRATION REFORM, WHY

LEADERS FROM FAITH, BUSINESS AND

LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITIES ARE

CALLING ON CONGRESS TO TAKE

ACTION.

A FEDERAL JUDGE HAS ISSUED A

TEMPORARY INJUNCTION AGAINST A

CALIFORNIA LAW BANNING

COUNSELORS USING REPAIR TIF

THERAPY.

THE CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE SAID

IT CAN LEAD TO DEPRESSION AND

EVEN SUICIDE.

THE CLAIM IS BASED ON

QUESTIONABLE AND SCIENTIFICALLY

INCOMPLETE STUDIES.

INJUNCTION APPLIES TO THREE

COUNSELORS WHO SOUGHT TO

OVERTURN THE LAW.

REFORMING IMMIGRATION CAN BE

A WIN FOR ALL SIDES.

CBN'S PAUL STRAND EXPLAINS.

REPORTER: LEGAL ANALYSTS SAY

MITT ROMNEY COULD HAVE BEEN

ELECTED PRESIDENT IF HE HADN'T

LOST SO MANY IS PHISPANIC VOTES.

FORGET ABOUT TALKING ABOUT

THE ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT,

PRO-LIFE VALLEY SYSTEM, WHAT

HAVE YOU, NONE OF THAT WORKS IF

WE ARE WRONG ON THIS ISSUE.

WE ARE DEADLY WRONG.

THIS COALITION IS PUSH

POLITICIANS TO PASS IMMIGRATION

REFORM.

BOTH PARTIES SEE THEY ARE IN A

POSITION TO PROFIT BYPASSING

REFORM.

IT IS ALSO THE RIGHT THING TO DO

BECAUSE REAL PEOPLE ARE

SUFFERING.

WE HAVE BEEN GETTING CALLS

FROM PASTORS WHERE PARENTS ARE

BEING DEPORTED AND CHILDREN LEFT

BEHIND.

LAST YEAR 5,000 CHILDREN LEFT IN

FOSTER CARE BECAUSE THEIR

PARENTS WERE DEPORTED.

NEW YORK DAIRY FORMER SAYS HE

COULDN'T MAKE IT WITHOUT

IMMIGRANT WORKERS.

STOPPED FOR A TAILLIGHT,

ARRESTED, CHECKED HIS

IMMIGRATION STATUS, DETERMINED

TO BE HERE WITHOUT DOCUMENTS.

WAS INCARCERATED FOR MANY MONTHS

BEFORE HE WAS RETURNED TO HIS

HOME COUNTRY.

EVANGELICAL WALLACE.

NO TRESPASS, OTHER SAYS HELP

WANTED.

11 MILLION VULNERABLE PEOPLE

HAVE GOTTEN STUCK, BOTH PARTIES

HAVE FAILED, DEMOCRATS,

REPUBLICANS, MORALLY CORRUPT

SYSTEM.

HE HAS A WIFE AND TWO SONS

BACK IN MEXICO.

HE IS UNABLE EITHER TO GO BACK,

VISIT OR GO BACK TO WORK FOR US

OR GO BACK FOR A VISIT.

CHURCHES NEED THESE

IMMIGRANTS.

FOR YEARS, WHAT TO DO HAS

BEEN ONE OF THE MOST

CONTROVERSIAL ISSUES.

ALL SIDES CAN SEE THE BENEFITS

TO THE COUNTRY OF SOLVING THIS

THORNY ISSUE.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS, REPORTING

FROM NATIONAL PRESS CLUB.

UP NEXT, CHRISTIAN EVANGELIST

TAKE THE GOSPEL TO THE MOST

RISKY PLACES ON EARTH.

THE DANAGERS THEY FACE AND MOST

MIRACULOUS ESCAPES.

A CHRISTIAN MISSIONARY TO

PAKISTAN IS IN CONTRACT CALL

CONDITION AFTER BEING SHOT.

REJETA EMMY IS DIRECTOR OF THE

FULL GOSPEL ASSEMBLIES IN

PAKISTAN.

SHE WAS SHOT IN FRONT OF HER

HOME.

NO ONE CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY.

SHE IS IN HER 70S AND WORKED

THERE FOR YEARS.

CHRISTIANS NEAR THE AFGHANISTAN

BORDER ARE BEING TARGETED.

GARY LANE HAS MORE IN

TONIGHT'S FOCUS REPORT.

REPORTER: SUPPLIES BOUND FOR

AFGHANISTAN DESTROYED BY TALIBAN

MILITANTS NOT FAR FROM PASHOWER,

PAKISTAN.

THEY ARE CONTROLLING THE

COUNTRY'S LAWLESS BORDER REGION.

[SINGING] PAKISTANI CHILDREN

SING PRAISE SONGS AT THIS

CHRISTIAN SCHOOL.

SOME WANT TO GROW UP TO BE

PASTORS AND EVANGELISTS

SPREADING THE GOSPEL.

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD?

IF THEY TRY TO SHARE THEIR

FAITH, ASK THIS MAN.

WE HAVE CHANGED HIS NAME AND

HIDDEN HIS IDENTITY TO PROTECT

HIM.

HE AGGRESSIVELY DISTRIBUTED

BIBLES AND TRACKS UNTIL LAST

OCTOBER IN PAKISTAN.

HE WAS KIDNAPPED AND TORTURED BY

MEMBERS OF THE TALIBAN.

THEY REMOVED MY CLOTHING AND

BEAT ME BADLY WITH A LEATHER

STRAP.

TWO HOLDING ME DOWN WHILE

ANOTHER HIT ME.

THEY SAID IF YOU ACCEPT ISLAM,

WE WILL NOT CONTINUE TO BEAT

YOU.

I SAID YOU HAVE ALREADY TORTURED

ME, DO WHATEVER MORE YOU WANT TO

DO TO ME.

I WILL NOT BECOME MUSLIM.

HE BEGAN TO RECITE PSALM 23

AND PRAYED GOD WOULD DELIVER HIM

FROM HIS PERSECUTORS.

A MUSLIM FRIEND HELPED HIM

ESCAPE FROM THE TALIBAN CAMP.

HERE IN NEIGHBORING

AFGHANISTAN, I TALKED TO ONE

MUSLIM BACKGROUND BELIEVER WHO

WAS NEARLY BEHEADED BY MEMBERS

OF AL-QAEDA.

WHEN THEY PUT A KNIFE TO MY

NECK, I THOUGHT GOD APPOINTED

THIS AS MY TIME TO PLAY.

WE HAVE RENAMED THIS

EVANGELI

EVANGELIST.

HE SAYS SIX TERRORISTS ARMED

STORMED INTO HIS PRAYER

MEETINGS.

THEY WERE ANGRY BECAUSE HE WAS

LEADING AFGHANS TO CHRIST.

AS HE CONTINUED TO PRAY TGOD

SPOKE AND TOLD HIM TO LEAVE THE

ROOM.

WHEN I STANDARD UP AFTER

PRAYING AND WENT TO GO OUT.

TWO MEN WERE BLOCKING THE

DOORWAY AND SAID YOU CANNOT

LEAVE.

ONE OF THE MEN SHOT AT ME.

THE GUN JAMMED.

HE PUT ANOTHER CLIP IN AND SHOT

AGAIN.

IT STILL DID NOT SHOOT.

FAREED AND THE OTHERS ESCAPED

UNHARMED.

POLICE CAPTURED THE TERRORISTS.

THE POLICE TOLD HIM THE

TERRORISTS WERE PLANNING TO

BEHEAD HIM.

JUST LIKE AL-QAEDA IN IRAQ, THEY

PLANNED TO SEND THE VIDEO-TAPE

TO ALGA JEER EASY TELEVISION.

HE QUIETLY CONTINUES HIS WORK.

WHAT ABOUT UKUB IN NEIGHBORING

PAKISTAN?

I PRAYED HE WOULD LEAD MY

PERSECUTORS TO JESUS CHRIST.

GOD HAS STRENGTHENED ME AND MADE

ME BOLD.

I MUST CONTINUE THIS.

I PLAN TO GO BACK TO THE

TALLALIAN BECAUSE I WAS CHOSEN

BY GOD FOR THIS WORK.
