PUSHING FOR PEACE IN THE MIDDLE

EAST.

WHY THE PRESIDENT SAYS HE HAS

NOT GIVEN UP ON TALKS BETWEEN

ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS.

PLUS THE SUPREME COURT IS SET TO

HEAR CASES ON GAY MARRIAGE AND

WHAT IT MEANS FOR AMERICAN

CULTURE.

THE POPULAR GAME SHOW, THE

AMERICAN BIBLE CHALLENGE IS

BACK.

HOST AND COMEDIAN JEFF

FOXWORTHY.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING I AM

MARK MARTIN.

PALESTINIAN TERRORIST LAUNCHED

ROCKET ATTACKS INTO SOUTHERN

ISRAEL TODAY BEFORE THE MEETING

WITH PALASTINIAN LEADERS AND

PRESIDENT OBAMA.

HE SPENT MUCH OF THE DAY WITH

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU

REPORTER: PRESIDENT OBAMA

STARTED AT THE ANCIENT MUSEUM

LOOKING AT THE ANCIENT DEAD SEA

SCROLLS.

ONE COMMENTATOR REMARKED IF THIS

IS THE WAY TO GREET OBAMA, WHAT

IS LEFT FOR THE MESSIAH?

ANY PREVIOUS ANIMOSITY APPEARED

TO BE GONE.

I THINK THEY ARE HAPPY

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS GETTING OFF

TO A NEW SECT START WITH PRIME

MINISTER NETANYAHU.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT AND A MORE

REALISTIC APPRAISAL OF THE

MIDDLE EAST

REPORTER: CIVIL WAR IN SYRIA,

NO NEGOTIATIONS AND THE THREAT

OF A NEW CLEAR IRAN.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: ALL OPTIONS

ARE ON THE TABLE.

WE'LL DO WHAT IS NECESSARY TO

PREVENT IRAN FROM GETTING THE

NUCLEAR WEAPONS.

ISRAEL REMAINS FULLY L

COMMITTED TO PEACE AND SOLUTIONS

FOR TWO STATES FOR TWO PEOPLES.

WE EXTEND OUR HANDS OF PEACE TO

THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE

REPORTER: OBAMA ADDRESSED A

PACKED AUDITORIUM WITH HUNDREDS

OF COLLEGE STUDENTS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: MAKE NO

MISTAKE, THOSE THAT REJECT

ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO EXIST, THEY

ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE.

REPORTER: HE SAID PEACE

BETWEEN ISRAEL AND PALESTINIANS

IS NECESSARY AND POSSIBLE.

THERE IS NO SECRET WHERE THAT

WILL LEAD.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: TWO STATES

FOR TWO PEOPLES.

ONE THING THAT IS CLEAR, A

TWO-STATE SOLUTION IS IMPOSSIBLE

TO ACHIEVE.

IT IS NOT A SOLUTION.

IF IT WERE ACHIEVED IT WOULD BE

PRIME YOUTH FOR NEW RELIGION

REPORTER: IT IS THE YOUNG

PEOPLE NOT THE LEADERS THAT

DECIDE THE FUTURE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I CAN

PROMISE YOU THIS AS A

POLITICIAN, POLITICAL LEADERS

WILL NEVER TAKE RISKS IF THE

PEOPLE DO NOT PUSH THEM TO TAKE

RISKS.

YOU MUST BREAK THE CHAINS YOU

WANT TO SEE.

REPORTER: GROWING U.S.-ISRAEL

TIES ARE NOT GOOD FOR

PALESTINIANS.

PALASTINIAN LAUNCH ROCKETS JUST

BEFORE THE PRESIDENT'S TRIP TO

ROMALA.

HE REALIZES IN THE SEA OF

SAND OF THE MIDDLE EAST, ISRAEL

IS THE ONLY ANCHOR WESTERN

DEMOCRACY HAS.

A LOT OF MISTAKES, SYRIA, EGYPT,

JORDAN IS STABILIZING.

TURKEY IS IN WRATH.

THERE IS ONLY ONE PLACE HE CAN

RELY ON FOR PEACE, THAT IS

ISRAEL.

THAT IS A GOOD MOVE.

REPORTER: CHRIS MITCHELL, CAB

CAN BE NEWS, JERUSALEM.

THE FOUNDATION OF THE DEFENSE

OF DEMOCRACIES, HAS THE

PRESIDENT ADDRESSED THE THREAT

TO ISRAELI SUFFICIENTLY?

THEY ARE ALL IN THE RIGHT

DIRECTION.

THE PRESIDENT YOU HAVE IS ON THE

PART OF THE UNITED STATES WHEN

IT COMES TO BLOUNTING IRAN'S

AMBITIONS.

REAL PROBLEM BOTH ALLIES FACE IS

BEING ABLE TO DETECT THE MOMENT

WHEN IRAN STEPS FORWARD AND

CROSSES THE FINISH LINE BEFORE

IT IS TOO LATE.

AND HISTORY OF NUCLEAR

PROLIFERATION TEACHES US, EVEN

IN THE BEST OF CIRCUMSTANCES,

WHEN WESTERN NATIONS WERE

FAMILIAR WITH THEIR OPPONENTS,

WERE AWARE OF DEVELOPMENTS IN

NUCLEAR PROGRAMS, HAD GOOD

INTELLIGENCE, THEY WERE ALWAYS

SURPRISED WHETHER IT WAS THE

SOVIET UNION IN 1940S AND '50S

WITH ITS ADVANCE ON THE NUCLEAR

WEAPONS PROGRAM, CHINA,

PAKISTAN, INDIA, MORE RECENTLY

NORTH KOREA AND OF COURSE,

LIBYA, WHICH NEVER HAD NUCLEAR

WEAPONS BUT TRADED ITS PROGRAM

IN EXCHANGE FOR A SHORT LIVED

IMMUNITY FOR THE REGIME.

WE WERE SURPRISED BY HOW MUCH WE

DIDN'T KNOW WHEN THINGS

DEVELOPED.

CHALLENGE FOR BOTH UNITED STATES

AND ISRAEL, I SUSPECT THIS HAS

BEEN A CENTRAL TOPIC FOR

DISCUSSION, WHEN WILL IT BE TOO

LATE TO ACT GIVEN THAT WE CANNOT

POSSIBLY ASSUME WE KNOW

EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW

ABOUT IRAN'S MILITARY PROGRAM.

HOW IS THE OBAMA VISIT BEING

RECEIVED BY THE PALESTINIANS?

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOOK AT

REACTIONS TO SEE THE SEA OF

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ISRAELIS AND

PALESTINIANS.

PALESTINIANS, OF COURSE, HAVE

BEEN HOPING AND EXPECTING THE

UNITED STATES WILL PUSH ISRAEL

INTO THE AGREEMENT PALESTINIANS

WANT.

THAT HASN'T HAPPENED.

MORE TO THE POINT, PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S VISIT WAS WELCOMED BY

ROCKETS IN SOUTH ISRAEL.

THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY MAY

NOT BE DIRECTLY RESPONSIBLE FOR

IT.

GOVERNMENT OF HAMAS AND GAZA MAY

CLAIM THEY HAD NOTHING TO DO

WITH IT.

ONE SIDE IS VERY MUCH INTERESTED

IN REACHING PEACE AND HAS BEEN

INVESTING AND WORKING IN

BUILDING A CULTURE OF

CO-EXISTENCE, THAT IS ISRAEL.

PALESTINIAN STREET IS REFUSING

TO ACKNOWLEDGE AND DREAMING OF

THE DAY WHEN ISRAEL WOULD

DISAPPEAR.

THAT IS THE HEART AND CORE OF

THE PROBLEM AND CONFLICT AND

DIFFICULTY IN SOLVING IT.

RENEWED AND FRESH PUSH BETWEEN

THE TWO SIDES.

UNLESS AND UNTIL THE

PALESTINIANS COME TO TERMS WITH

ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO EXIST, YOU ARE

NOT GOING TO SEE PEACE.

CONGRESS PASSED A MEASURE

THAT KEEPS THE GOVERNMENT UP AND

RUNNING ENDING THREAT OF A

GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS PASS ADD PLAN

THAT WILL BALANCE THE BUDGET IN

10 YEARS OFFERED BY PAUL RYAN.

IT BALANCED THE DEFICIT IN A

DECADE.

IT INCLUDES CHANGES TO MEDICARE.

ALSO REQUIRE THE REPEAL OF THE

PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE LAW

WHICH IS THREE YEARS OLD TODAY.

THIS PLAN RECOGNIZES IF WE

CAN'T HANDLE OUR OUT OF CONTROL

DEBT, WE WILL LOSE CONTROL OF

OUR FUTURE.

'OBAMACARE' GETS RID OF THE

BENEFITS OF 'OBAMACARE.'

BUDGET PLAN IS NOT EXPECTED

TO SEE LIGHT OF DAY IN SENATE

WHERE DEMOCRATS ARE TALKING

ABOUT RAISING TACK TAXES AND

SPENDING CUTS.

A PANEL MADE THE CASE, COURT'S

DECISIONS COULD RADICALLY CHANGE

AMERICA.

THEY MIGHT HAVE A BIGGER IMPACT

THAN ROE V. WADE LEGALIZING

ABORTION

REPORTER: SUPREME COURT TAKES

UP TWO CRUCIAL QUESTIONS MARCH

26TH AND 27, SHOULD FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT DEFINE MARRIAGE AS

BETWEEN A MAN AND WOMAN.

IF NO, THAT COULD MAKE GAY

MARRIAGE LAY OF THE LAND.

THEY WOULD IGNORE FUNDAMENTAL

TRUTH.

REDEFINING MARRIAGE WOULD

TEACH IT IS NOT ABOUT UNITING

MAN AND WOMAN OR THE SOCIAL

REALITY THAT A CHILD NEEDS A MOM

AND DAD.

IT ABSECURES THOSE TRUTHS AND

MAKES IT ABOUT THE NEEDS OF

ADULTS THAN THE NEEDS OF

CHILDREN.

HOMOSEXUALS ARGUE THEY

DESERVE THE SAME RIGHTS UNDER

THE LAW.

THE GOVERNMENT PROTECTS

TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE BECAUSE IT

IS CRUCIAL TO THE SURVIVE OF

SOCIETY.

BY FAR BEST PRODUCES AND

RAISES THE CHILDREN THAT ARE THE

OFFSPRING OF THOSE

RELATIONSHIPS.

IF YOU SEVER THAT, THAT IS THE

GOAL IN THE FIRST PLACE.

MARRIAGE IS WHAT HAS BEEN THE

UNION OF MAN AND WOMAN.

THAT IS HOW THE SUPREME COURT

HAS ACKNOWLEDGED MARRIAGE 14

THYME TIMES IN ITS PRIOR JURY

RIS PRUDENCE.

WHETHER THE SUPREME COURT --

AMERICANS WANT TO ENGAGE IN THIS

DEBATE.

WE HAVE BEEN DOING THIS THE LAST

10 YEARS.

WHAT WE NEED IS THE SUPREME

COURT TO KEEP ITS HANDS OFF OF

MARRIAGE.

HERITAGE FOUNDATION POINTS

OUT IN A NATION THAT HAS

LEGALIZED SAME-SEX MARRIAGE WILL

FACE DISCRIMINATION AND

PUNISHMENT.

THEY HAVE SHUT DOWN CHRISTIAN

ADOPTION AGENCIES,

MASSACHUSETTS, ILLINOIS AND

WASHINGTON, D.C. CATHOLICS ARE

RUNNING ADOPTION AGENCIES.

THE STATE SAID WE ARE NOT GIVING

YOU LICENSES UNLESS YOU PLACE

KIDS WITH SAME-SEX MARRIAGE

COUPLES.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS,

REPORTING FROM NATIONAL PRESS

CLUB.

COMING UP, TARGETING SENIOR

CITIZENS, HOW SOCIAL MEDIA IS

BRINGING NEW LIFE TO AN OLD CON.

SEVERAL STATES WARNING

INVESTORS ABOUT A COMPANY CALLED

PROFITABLE SUNRISE PROMISES RISK

FREE RETURNS UP TO 2.7% ON THEIR

MONEY.

CHRISTIAN EDITOR JAMES PARIS

SAYS THE COMPANY TARGETS

CHRISTIANS BY IMAGES OF JESUS

AND BIBLE VERSES.

WHAT MANY OF THESE SCHEMES DO

IS PAY THE CURRENT INVESTORS BY

BRINGING IN NEW INVESTORS.

I KNOW THIS IS A CLICHE IF THIS

SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT

PROBABLY IS.

IF BANK CD'S PAY 1% AND YOU CAN

EARN 2% IN ONE SINGLE DAY THEY

ARE NOT PROVIDING YOU, NOT A

LICENSED INVESTMENT ADVISER,

THESE ARE OBVIOUS TIPOFFS.

PARIS AND A NON-PROFIT FRAUD

INVESTIGATION GROUP SAYS PASTORS

HAVE FALLEN PREY.

THEY HAVE COLLECTED MORE THAN

100 MILLION DOLLARS.

FOR MORE GO TO CBNNEWS.COM.

SOCIAL MEDIA LIKE FACEBOOK AND

TWITTER ARE GIVING NEW LIFE TO

AN OLD CON GAME, TARGETING

SENIOR CITIZENS.

THE CROOKS AT TIMES END UP WITH

THE ENTIRE LIFE SAVINGS.

THE GRANDPARENT SCAM

REPORTER: FAMILY MEANS

EVERYTHING TO THIS FAMILY.

AS HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS, THEIR

FAMILY LOST EVERYTHING.

I AM THE ONLY SURVIVOR OF MY

FAMILY.

SO MY GRANDSON MEANS A LOT TO

ME.

REPORTER: HE WAS ON NINA'S

MIND WHEN SHE ANSWERED THE

PHONE.

HE SAID HI GRANDMA, HOW ARE

YOU DOING?

I SAID WHO AM I TALKING TO?

HE SAID JOSHUA.

HE SAID HE HAD BEEN IN GREECE

ATTENDING A FRIEND'S WEDDING.

HE SAID I AM IN BIG TROUBLE,

PROMISE NOT TO TELL MY PARENTS.

CALLER WAS SUPPOSEDLY IN JAIL

BECAUSE HE WRECKED A RENTAL CAR.

THEY WOULD NOT LET ME GO

UNTIL I PAY THE DAMAGES.

I SAID HOW MUCH ARE THE DAMAGES?

HE SAID $3,500.

REPORTER: NINA PRESSED THE

CALLER FOR A NUMBER TO CALL HIM

BACK.

HE SAID IF YOU ARE NOT GOING

TO GIVE ME THE MONEY, THEY WON'T

LET ME LEAVE THE COUNTRY.

I SAID JOSH, DOESN'T SOUND LIKE

YOU.

MAYBE I HAVE TO TALK TO

SOMEBODY.

HE DIDN'T WANT TO GIVE THE

TELEPHONE NUMBER.

AT THAT POINT WE GOT DISENGAGED.

THAT IS IT.

NO MONEY.

[LAUGHTER].

REPORTER: LEON CALLED HIS

GRANDSON SAFE IN ISRAEL.

TO BE ABLE TO EXMROPLOIT

GRANDPARENTS

REPORTER: HE SAID IT FOLLOWED

THE FOUR-STEP DANCE TO

GRANDPARENT SCAM.

ESTABLISH CREDIBILITY,

EMERGENCY, SECRECY, EXPLOIT

THEIR NATURAL DESIRE TO HELP

GRANDCHILDREN.

WE HAVE HEARD FROM SENIORS

THAT WIRED $3,800 TO THESE

CROOKS.

AGE OF SOCIAL MEDIA IS MAKING

IT EASIER FOR CROOKS TO GET A

TARGET WHERE MILLIONS COME TO

POST PERSONAL INFORMATION TO

SHARE WITH FAMILY.

IN THE HANDS OF A CROOK, THAT

CAN BE USEFUL TO CON A

GRANDPARENT WHO ISN'T LIKELY TO

HAVE A FACEBOOK PAGE.

I DON'T KNOW WHERE DID THEY

GET THIS INFORMATION?

THAT I HAVE A GRANDSON NAMED

JOSHUA.

THIS IS THE MOST DISPICABLE

FRAUD WE SEE IN THIS OFFICE.

IT IS JUST ONE DROP SHORT OF

VIOLENT CRIME

REPORTER: GRANDPARENTS AREN'T

THE ONLY ONES.

NEVER RUSH TO WIRE MONEY

ANYWHERE, UNLESS YOU KNOW FOR

SURE WHO WILL GET IT.

WIRING MONEY IS NO DIFFERENT

THAN HANDING CASH

REPORTER: AFTER ALMOST OF

BECOMING A VICTIM.

HE HAD ANSWERS FOR

EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING.

IT IS IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE TO

ASK PERSONAL QUESTIONS TO MAKE

SURE THIS IS THEIR LOVED ONES.

BIBLE IN THE RIGHT ORDER.

JUST THE KIND OF MAKE IT FUN.

IT SHOULD BE A FUN THINK.

REPORTER: IN DEED.

I KNOW YOU TRAVEL THE COUNTRY AS

A STAND UP COMEDIAN.

I THINK THEY LIKE THE FACT

YOU SEE IT BEING LIVED OUT.

ONLY PEOPLE JESUS GOD SIDEWAYS

WITH WERE THE PHARISEES WITH THE

HEAD KNOWLEDGE AND NO HEART

KNOWLEDGE.

THESE PEOPLE ON OUR SHOW ARE

DOING THIS.

WE ARE GIVING THEM A WAY TO TAKE

MONEY BACK THERE.

WE ARE NOT ASHAMED THIS IS WHAT

IT IS.

IT SEEMS LIKE ALMOST IN THIS

COUNTRY, YOU HAVE TO APOLOGIZE

FOR HAVING FAITH.

THREE LADIES FROM PLANO, TEXAS

THAT RAN A FOOD PANTRY AND WON

$25,000 ON THE SHOW.

WE WENT TO COMMERCIAL.

I SAID WHAT DOES $25,000 MEAN TO

YOU?

THAT IS 80,000 MEALS IN MY

NEIGHBORHOOD.

YOU ARE THINKING OKAY.

THIS ISN'T JUST A GAME SHOW,

THIS IS COOL.

THIS IS CHANGING SOMEBODY'S

LIFE.

REPORTER: BEAUTIFUL.

I UNDERSTAND YOU ARE EMBARKING

ON A NEW COMEDY TOUR, TELL US

ABOUT THAT?

OUT OF EVERYTHING, IF YOU PUT

A GUN TO MY HEAD AND YOU COULD

ONLY DO ONE THING, IT WOULD BE

STAND UP.

I CONTINUE TO DO THAT AND WRITE.

AS MY MOTHER SAYS YOU DON'T HAVE

TO TELL EVERYTHING THAT GOES ON

IN THIS FAMILY.

I SURE LOVE DOING IT.

I JUST STARTED FILMING A SHOW

FOR CBS.

COMPETITION FOR AMATEUR BAKERS.

COMPETE IN 38TH ANNUAL ROTTEN

SNEAKER CONTESTS.

SOME TRAVELING ALL THE WAY FROM

ALASKA TO WIN THE TITLE.

WINNER WAS A 14 YEAR OLD FROM

BRISTOL, CONNECTICUT.

I GOT MY SNEAKERS ROTTEN BY

PUTTING THEM IN THE CHICKEN

COOP.

AND WALKING THE DOGS TO THE

PARK.

THE CHICKEN COOP WAS A

CLASSIC MOVE.

IT IS ONE OF THE WORST SMELLS

EVER.

THAT IS BAD.

A CHECK FOR $2,500 AND FREE TRIP

WINNER.

A SPECIAL PERSON TO BE A JUDGE.

THAT IS ALL FOR THIS EDITION OF
