Episode: “A Personal Note” (Zola discusses his cancer, March 2006)

Caption transcript for “A Personal Note”

  • 00:09 BRETHREN, MY HEART'S DESIRE AND PRAYER TO GOD FOR ISRAEL IS THAT THEY MIGHT BE SAVED.
  • 00:15 THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE JEW AND THE GENTILE,
  • 00:18 FOR THE SAME LORD OVERALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM.
  • 00:28 CONSIDERING THE TIMES AND SEASONS OF OUR WORLD TODAY, HERE'S ZOLA LEVITT.
  • 00:33 SHALOM, HELLO AGAIN.
  • 00:35 THERE'S NO OTHER WAY TO SAY THIS.
  • 00:37 I'VE CONTRACTED METASTATIC LUNG CANCER.
  • 00:41 I'M VERY SICK; I DON'T KNOW HOW THIS HAPPENED.
  • 00:45 ON FEBRUARY 10 I HAD A REAL SENIOR MOMENT.
  • 00:50 I BLANKED OUT, I STARTED TO SPEAK,
  • 00:52 WHAT I THOUGHT WERE ANCIENT MIDDLE EASTERN LANGUAGES, BY THE WAY,
  • 00:56 BUT THEY WEREN'T ENGLISH AND WENT TO AN EMERGENCY ROOM AND HAD A SCAN OF THE BRAIN.
  • 01:00 THERE ARE LESIONS ON THE BRAIN, WENT OVER TO A BIGGER HOSPITAL AND HAD MORE TESTS
  • 01:06 AND THERE'S A TERRIFIC AMOUNT OF LUNG CANCER AND LESIONS ON THE LIVER AND SO ON.
  • 01:11 SO, THIS IS PRETTY A ADVANCED DISEASE.
  • 01:13 IT JUST DIDN'T SHOW ITSELF AND PROBABLY I'LL SEE THE LORD THIS YEAR, I SUPPOSE.
  • 01:19 THAT'S WHAT THE FORECAST IS.
  • 01:22 I'M GOING TO TAKE THE CHEMOTHERAPY AND THE RADIATION AND SO FORTH AND YES,
  • 01:31 I'M GOING TO DRINK THE CARROT JUICE AND EVERYBODY IS SENDING SUGGESTIONS, OF COURSE, WHY NOT.
  • 01:36 BUT, LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING AND I MEAN THIS, I LOOK FORWARD TO THIS, WHY WOULD I NOT.
  • 01:43 I MEAN, PAUL SAID, FOR ME TO DIE IS GAIN AND HE'S GONE ON TO THE LORD.
  • 01:50 THIS COULD BE A TERRIFIC PROMOTION FOR ALL I KNOW TO GO TO HEAVEN, TO SEE THE LORD,
  • 01:56 TO SEE THE OLD TESTAMENT SAINTS, ALL THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE THAT ARE THERE
  • 02:01 AND I GET TO CHECK ON THE PROPHECIES, ARE WE REALLY RIGHT,
  • 02:06 THE RAPTURE AND THAT'S AN INTERESTING POINT, YOU KNOW.
  • 02:11 THE RAPTURE COULD REALLY COME RIGHT UP AHEAD.
  • 02:14 I'M NOT KIDDING ABOUT THAT, I'VE BEEN SAYING IT RIGHT ALONG.
  • 02:16 I'VE BEEN SAYING IT FOR 35 YEARS, BUT IT HAS MORE IMMEDIACY AT THIS MOMENT
  • 02:22 THAN ANYTIME I CAN THINK OF SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THIS MINISTRY
  • 02:25 DUE TO IRAN WITH ITS MINDLESS THREATS OF NUCLEAR ATTACK ON ISRAEL
  • 02:32 AND POSSIBLY HAMAS, WHICH IS ELECTED, OF COURSE, TO RUN THE PALESTINIAN PEOPLE
  • 02:39 AND I'M THINKING THAT THE TWO OF THOSE TOGETHER
  • 02:43 WOULD HYPE EACH OTHER UP INTO SOME PREMATURE ATTACK ON ISRAEL, WHICH CAN HANDLE IT, BY THE WAY,
  • 02:50 CAN HANDLE THEM BOTH, ESPECIALLY HAMAS AND THAT IN TURN WOULD TAKE US TO
  • 02:56 THE INVASION CALLED GOG AND MAGOG IN EZEKIEL 38 AND 39 AND WE'RE NOT HERE FOR THAT.
  • 03:03 SO, IN A SMALL WAY I'M ACTUALLY GETTING MYSELF TOGETHER
  • 03:08 TO MAYBE GO IN THE RAPTURE EVEN IN THE MIDDLE OF THIS TREATMENT.
  • 03:13 I EXPECT AS TIME GOES ON THAT MY VOICE WILL WEAKEN
  • 03:17 BECAUSE ONE THING THIS CANCER DOES IS PULL ON THE VOCAL CORDS
  • 03:21 AND IT'S ALREADY WEAKENING SO I WANTED TO TALK TO YOU RIGHT AWAY ABOUT SOME THINGS I WANT TO SAY
  • 03:27 AND NOT THAT I'M THE EXPERT OR ANYTHING, BUT YOU'RE MY PEOPLE THAT WATCH OUR PROGRAM
  • 03:33 AND I NEED TO TELL YOU SOME THINGS.
  • 03:35 FIRST OFF, WITNESS.
  • 03:37 EVERYONE GET OUT THERE AND WITNESS ALL THE TIME.
  • 03:40 GET THROWN OUT AT PARTIES, GET THROWN OUT OF HOUSES, GET LAUGHED AT.
  • 03:44 THE LORD SAID, YE SHALL HAVE PERSECUTION.
  • 03:47 I ALWAYS TELL THE STORY OF THE MISSIONARY CAME TO PROGRAM
  • 03:49 WHO WAS A MISSIONARY IN THE SINAI DESERT.
  • 03:54 I SAID TO HIM, WELL BROTHER YOU MUST REALLY GET SOME PERSECUTION OUT THERE.
  • 03:59 HE SAID, I DO, OF COURSE I DO, BUT PERSECUTION IS THE PROPER EXERCISE OF THE CHURCH.
  • 04:05 THE AMERICAN CHURCH IS GETTING WEAK AND FLABBY BECAUSE IT DOESN'T GET ENOUGH EXERCISE.
  • 04:12 WE NEED TO BE PERSECUTED.
  • 04:13 YOU NEED TO MAKE NOISE IN YOUR TOWN, BE KNOWN.
  • 04:16 SO, TELL EVERYBODY ABOUT THE LORD.
  • 04:19 SOME OF THEM ARE WAITING TO HEAR IT.
  • 04:21 I MEAN THAT, I MEAN JEWISH PEOPLE, I MEAN CATHOLIC PEOPLE,
  • 04:23 I MEAN ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE ARE THINKING ABOUT THEIR SALVATION,
  • 04:28 WHERE THEY'RE GOING WHEN THEY DIE, BELIEVE ME THEY ARE
  • 04:31 AND OCCASIONALLY YOU'LL HIT ON SOMEBODY THAT'S VERY GLAD TO HEAR THIS NEWS.
  • 04:36 SECOND, I WOULD SAY STAY IN THE WORD, STAY WITH THE LORD, STAY CLOSE TO THE FAITH.
  • 04:42 THIS IS NOT A TIME TO PLAY AROUND.
  • 04:45 LISTEN, THE WORLD IS COMING TO AN END.
  • 04:49 I DON'T KNOW HOW ELSE TO SAY IT, IT REALLY IS.
  • 04:52 SEVERAL WAYS YOU CAN DESCRIBE THAT AND CHRISTIAN PEOPLE NEED TO BE WELL READ,
  • 04:58 WELL STUDIED AND TIED UP WITH THE LORD VERY, VERY CLOSE.
  • 05:02 THIRD, TALK TO CHILDREN OF CONSENT.
  • 05:07 WE GOT A LOT OF HIGH SCHOOL KIDS THAT GOT, EVERY KID HAS HIS AGE OF CONSENT,
  • 05:14 BUT IT'S SO TERRIBLE THAT SOME OF THEM ARE OLD ENOUGH THAT AREN'T SAVED
  • 05:19 AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE LORD DO EXCEPT DRAW A LINE ON THE SAND AND THEY'LL BE LOST.
  • 05:24 SO, IT'S HARDER MAYBE, BUT SIT YOUR CHILDREN DOWN AND TELL THEM,
  • 05:30 LOOK, THIS IS TERRIBLY, TERRIBLY IMPORTANT, YOU HAVE TO COME TO THE LORD, YOU JUST HAVE TO.
  • 05:36 I WANT TO TAKE YOU WITH ME TO HEAVEN, TO THE KINGDOM AND TO ETERNITY.
  • 05:40 I'LL MISS YOU IF YOU'RE NOT THERE AND THERE'S NO OTHER WAY THAT I KNOW IN SCRIPTURE
  • 05:45 THAT YOU'RE GOING TO GET THERE OTHER THAN COME TO JESUS CHRIST FOR YOUR SALVATION.
  • 05:49 SO, BOW YOUR HEAD, MAKE YOU PRAYER, WHATEVER YOU'RE GOING TO DO, BUT LET'S GET IT DONE.
  • 05:54 FOURTH, GO TO ISRAEL, FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE ON ANY TOUR.
  • 05:58 I'M NOT, YOU KNOW WE GOT TO CLOSE OUR LAST TOUR 7 WEEKS AHEAD WITH SO MANY PEOPLE.
  • 06:04 ALMOST ANY TOUR IS FINE AND GET OVER THERE AND LOOK AT YOUR PROMISED LAND.
  • 06:09 I MEAN, YOU'RE GOING TO LIVE THERE 1000 YEARS, SO TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE PLACE
  • 06:13 AND WHEN YOU DO, JESUS TOLD HIS DISCIPLES GO NOT INTO THE WAY OF SAMARITANS
  • 06:21 OR INTO THE CITIES OF THE GENTILES,
  • 06:28 AND PROCLAIM TO THEM THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND.
  • 06:32 IF YOU CAN GET OVER THERE AND YOU CAN DO THAT, THEY'RE NOT GOING TO THROW YOU OUT.
  • 06:36 THAT'S AN OLD STORY.
  • 06:38 GENTILES OR ANYONE ELSE IS WELCOME TO TALK ABOUT THEIR FAITH ON THE STREET, WHO KNOWS;
  • 06:45 MAYBE YOU'LL BRING ONE OF THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL INTO THE FOLD.
  • 06:48 AT THE VERY LEAST, YOU CAN IMPRESS AN ISRAELI TO REALLY THINK
  • 06:54 AND MAYBE LOOK AT THE NEW TESTAMENT AND MAYBE MAKE A PRAYER
  • 06:58 AND EVENTUALLY BECOME ONE OF THE 144,000 IN THE UPCOMING TRIBULATION PERIOD.
  • 07:04 THEY'RE GOING TO BE VERY, VERY EFFECTIVE.
  • 07:07 FIFTH, AND I GUESS I HAVE TO SAY THIS.
  • 07:13 I HAVE 35 YEARS EXPERIENCE WITH MUSLIM PEOPLE.
  • 07:17 DON'T TRY TO DEAL WITH THEM.
  • 07:19 DON'T TRY TO NEGOTIATE, DON'T MAKE TREATIES; CERTAINLY DON'T GIVE THEM OUR PORTS.
  • 07:25 THIS IS THE MOST RIDICULOUS IDEA, IT'S LIKE A JOKE.
  • 07:29 IT'S HAPPENING RIGHT NOW AND I DON'T KNOW IF IT'LL BE HAPPENING WHEN YOU WATCH THE PROGRAM,
  • 07:33 BUT CONGRESS IS RISING UP AND AS IF THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO BE TOLD
  • 07:39 IT'S NOT GOOD TO BRING THESE PEOPLE INTO AMERICA TO CONTROL OUR PORTS.
  • 07:46 I'M FLABBERGASTED.
  • 07:49 I'VE NEVER HEARD ANYTHING LIKE IT.
  • 07:51 I WANT TO MAKE SURE TO GET THAT SAID AMONG OTHER THINGS AND I'LL COME BACK TO THAT SUBJECT.
  • 07:57 NOW WE'RE GOING TO, I THINK TO A TOUR SPOT AND THEN I UNDERSTAND A LITTLE BIT OF MUSIC.
  • 08:02 SO, I'LL BE BACK WITH YOU AFTER THIS.
  • 08:13 FOR INSIGHTFUL PERSPECTIVES OF ISRAEL AND BIBLE PROPHECY,
  • 08:17 ASK FOR OUR FREE MONTHLY NEWSLETTER, THE LEVITT LETTER.

  • 08:41 PLEASE CONTACT US FOR MORE INFORMATION.
  • 08:45 IF YOU HAD BUT ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE ISRAEL, WHAT WOULD THAT ONE WORD BE?
  • 08:48 INCREDIBLE.
  • 08:49 FULFILLMENT.
  • 08:51 UNBELIEVABLE.
  • 08:52 WOW.
  • 08:54 SHALOM.
  • 08:55 FABULOUS.
  • 08:57 SABABA, WHICH MEANS AWESOME.
  • 09:00 LOVE, THE LOVE OF GOD.
  • 09:04 PHENOMENAL, PHENOMENAL, PHENOMENAL.
  • 09:15 WELL, THERE'S ISRAEL THE WAY WE SEE IT.
  • 09:17 IT'S JUST BEAUTIFUL.
  • 09:19 IT'S JUST, THE THING IS, I WISH I COULD COMMIT EVERY AMERICAN
  • 09:24 TO GO THERE AND TAKE A LOOK AT THE PLACE BECAUSE
  • 09:26 THEY'LL BE BOWLED OVER, HOW PEACEFUL, HOW WONDERFUL.
  • 09:29 NOT THAT THERE'S NOT SOME FOOLING AROUND THERE, BUT THERE IS HERE, TOO.
  • 09:33 IT'S MUCH SAFER THAN STAYING HOME, THAT'S A FACT.
  • 09:36 SOMEBODY ONCE ASKED ME HOW CAN I TAKE MY WIFE TO JERUSALEM,
  • 09:39 I SAID I'M TAKING HER A BREAK FROM DALLAS.
  • 09:41 THIS IS THE MURDER CAPITAL OF THE COUNTRY FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE AND THAT'S VIRTUALLY PEACEFUL.
  • 09:49 ANYWAY, WHILE WE WERE PREPARING THIS PROGRAM,
  • 09:54 MY PRODUCER ASKED ME TO PLAY A CERTAIN SONG I WROTE AND I'M STILL WRITING THE SONGS.
  • 10:00 THEY STILL COME FROM THE LORD AND ON FEBRUARY 14, I WAS ALREADY IN THE HOSPITAL
  • 10:06 AND WITH GRAVE NEWS AND IT WAS ALSO VALENTINE'S DAY,
  • 10:10 SO, NECESSARY TO PREPARE A SONG FOR MY WIFE
  • 10:13 AND THE SONG GOT KIND OF MIXED UP IN MY THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS ILLNESS AND SO ON.
  • 10:19 BUT, IT CAME OUT KIND OF NICE, SO IF YOU LIKE, WE WILL GO AHEAD AND PLAY THAT FOR YOU NOW.
  • 10:27 ♪ ♪
  • 10:44 ♪ ♪
  • 11:02 ♪ ♪
  • 12:03 WELL, I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THAT SONG.
  • 12:05 YOU KNOW, THE LORD IS ALWAYS FAITHFUL.
  • 12:07 I THINK THAT'LL ARRIVE UNTIL THE DAY I GO AND ALWAYS DOES.
  • 12:14 YOU KNOW, I WAS TALKING ABOUT ISLAM AND YOU KNOW,
  • 12:18 WE HAD WALID SHOEBAT ON OUR PROGRAM
  • 12:21 AND A COUPLE OF OTHER CONVERTED MUSLIMS
  • 12:23 THEY ARE SOLID IN THEIR VIEWS,
  • 12:26 THAT THE MUSLIMS ARE COMING, THAT THEY MEAN TO TAKE OVER.
  • 12:29 I TELL YOU, IT'S VERY, VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 12:35 IT'S NOT SO IMPORTANT FOR THE CHURCH BECAUSE
  • 12:36 I THINK THE RAPTURE WILL GET US OUT OF THIS THING,
  • 12:39 MY GOSH, FOR THE REST OF OUR COUNTRY IT'S TERRIBLY IMPORTANT.
  • 12:42 NOW OF COURSE WE'RE DOING THE WRONG THING, WE NEGOTIATE, WE TALK WITH THEM, WE MAKE...
  • 12:49 JUST LET ME GO TO THE BOTTOM LINE.
  • 12:52 STAY AWAY FROM THEM, KEEP THEM OUT AND THAT'S ALL YOU CAN DO.
  • 12:55 NOW, I WAS GOING TO SAY, TOO, DON'T FOOL AROUND IN LOST CHURCHES.
  • 13:01 I GET SO MANY LETTERS FROM PEOPLE.
  • 13:03 I HAD A FELLOW WRITE IN AND SAID I'VE BEEN GOING TO A, AND HE NAMED SOME DENOMINATION
  • 13:09 FOR 7 YEARS AND I FIGURED OUT THAT THEY'RE NOT REALLY RIGHT-ON ABOUT ISRAEL AND PROPHECY.
  • 13:17 WHAT TOOK HIM 7 YEARS?
  • 13:20 I MEAN GET OUT OF THESE CHURCHES, EMPTY THESE CHURCHES, WALK AWAY.
  • 13:24 GO TO A BIBLE CHURCH WHERE THE WORD IS TAUGHT AND THE LORD IS HONORED, IT'S AS SIMPLE AS THAT.
  • 13:29 IT'S PRETTY LATE IN THE GAME FOR ME, SO I'M SAYING IT PLAINLY.
  • 13:33 TURN AROUND AND WALK OUT AND LEAVE THAT PASTOR STANDING THERE BY HIMSELF,
  • 13:38 THE GIBBERISH, WHATEVER HE'S TALKING AND GO TO A CHURCH WHERE THE LORD IS HONORED
  • 13:42 AND THE BIBLE IS TAUGHT, THAT'S ALL YOU CAN DO.
  • 13:45 IT'S TOO LATE TO STAY IN SOME CHURCH WHERE YOU HAVE SOME FRIENDS
  • 13:49 OR WHATEVER YOU HAVE FOR YEARS AND SO ON.
  • 13:51 NOW, TO TALK ABOUT WHAT'S GOING ON DIRECTLY IN ISRAEL,
  • 13:57 I JUST DON'T SEE PRIME MINISTER SHARON COMING BACK AND THAT MAKES ME SAD BECAUSE I KNEW HIM,
  • 14:04 I MET HIM, I TALKED TO HIM FOR 3 HOURS.
  • 14:07 HE'S QUITE A GENTLEMAN. HE'S A NICE FELLOW.
  • 14:10 I'VE SAID THIS BEFORE, HE WAS VERY ACCOMMODATING.
  • 14:14 PERMIT ME, EVEN THOUGH I PROBABLY SAID IT BEFORE,
  • 14:17 BUT HE MADE ONE JOKE WHICH I THOUGHT WAS PRETTY FUNNY.
  • 14:20 I HAD A BIOGRAPHY OF HIM AND I SAW IN HIS BIOGRAPHY
  • 14:24 THAT HE ENLISTED IN THE ARMY AS A BUCK PRIVATE AND HE ROSE TO THE RANK OF MAJOR GENERAL.
  • 14:32 THAT'S NOT EASY AND OF COURSE FROM THERE, DEFENSE MINISTER AND FINALLY PRIME MINISTER.
  • 14:37 BUT, I SAID TO HIM, YOU MADE IT ALL THE WAY UP THOSE RANKS FROM BUCK PRIVATE TO MAJOR GENERAL
  • 14:44 AND HE LOOKED OFF INTO SPACE AND STROKED HIS CHIN AND HE SAID,
  • 14:47 AH YES, AND THE HARDEST STEP WAS FROM PRIVATE TO CORPORAL.
  • 14:52 I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY.
  • 14:54 BUT, LOOKING AT HAMAS ACROSS THE LINE IN GAZA, UNDERSTAND THIS IS A PAPER TIGER.
  • 15:03 HAMAS DOESN'T DO ANYTHING, THEY SIMPLY MARCH UP AND DOWN THE STREET, WAVE BIG GUNS,
  • 15:07 WEAR SKI MASKS AND HYPE EACH OTHER UP INTO THINKING THEY'RE SOME KIND OF ARMY.
  • 15:12 WHEN THEY ACTUALLY DO SOME DESTRUCTION, THEY SHOOT SOMEBODY FROM BEHIND A TREE,
  • 15:17 THEY GET SOME KID TO BLOW UP SOMETHING.
  • 15:19 LET ME GIVE YOU THE CASUALTY FIGURES, IF I HAVE THEM RIGHT,
  • 15:25 SINCE 1994, 12 YEARS AGO, HAMAS HAS KILLED 429 PEOPLE.
  • 15:33 I'M NOT SAYING THAT'S... MAKING LIGHT OF THAT,
  • 15:36 BUT, THAT'S A MORNING'S WORK IN OKINAWA, THAT'S NOT A BATTLE, THAT'S NOTHING
  • 15:42 AND THEY KEEP MARCHING AND KEEP HYPING THEMSELVES UP AND IMAGINE THAT THEY ARE AN ARMY
  • 15:48 AND I'M A LITTLE AFRAID THAT THEY'LL ACTUALLY CONVINCE THEMSELVES
  • 15:52 THAT THEY CAN ATTACK ISRAEL, WHICH IS RIDICULOUS.
  • 15:56 THEY CAN'T BEGIN TO MARCH OUT OF GAZA AND START ATTACKING A POWER NATION LIKE ISRAEL.
  • 16:03 IF THEY DO THAT, WHAT I'M SAYING IS THEY CAN TOUCH OFF SOMETHING.
  • 16:09 THEY CAN INSPIRE IRAN AT THE SAME TIME TO ATTACK FROM THE OTHER SIDE,
  • 16:13 WHICH ISRAEL STILL CAN HANDLE,
  • 16:15 BUT THENALL OF THEM WILL LEAD TO GOG AND MAGOG IF YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING.
  • 16:21 WHEN THESE POWERS ARE DEFEATED OR AT LEAST HAMAS IS DEFEATED,
  • 16:27 THEN THE OTHERS START SAYING, WELL, WE'LL AVENGE OUR BROTHERS LIKE MUSLIMS DO
  • 16:31 AND THEY'LL FORM UP THIS NATION OF A DOZEN NATIONS TO ATTACK ISRAEL,
  • 16:43 AND WHEN THEY DO THAT, THEY STILL WILL BE VANQUISHED.
  • 16:47 IT STILL WON'T WORK.
  • 16:49 ISRAEL IS STILL STRONGER THAN ALL THOSE TOGETHER AND WILL THROW THEM OUT, IN FACT,
  • 16:53 I THINK THEY'LL USE THEIR NUKES TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH.
  • 16:56 I THINK WE'LL SEE THE FIRST NUCLEAR DEFENSE OF AN INVASION AND IT'S NOT PRETTY.
  • 17:01 BUT, THEY WILL BE DEFEATED.
  • 17:03 THAT'S NOT THE END OF IT.
  • 17:06 THEY'LL ALL FALL BACK AND THEY'LL GET BIGGER POWERS
  • 17:08 AND GET IT ORGANIZED AND AT THE END OF 7 YEARS THEY'LL ATTACK IN ARMAGEDDON.
  • 17:13 NOW, THAT TIME THEY WOULD REALLY HAVE WON THE BATTLE.
  • 17:18 BUT, AT THAT TIME THE LORD SAYS IF I HAD NOT COME, THERE'S BE NO FLESH SAVED.
  • 17:24 HE COMES BACK AND WE THAT ARE WITH HIM
  • 17:26 PUT A STOP TO THIS ARMAGEDDON AND WE START OUR KINGDOM.
  • 17:31 WITH ALL THAT SAID, I'M WATCHING HAMAS AND I'M WATCHING IRAN BECAUSE MAYBE
  • 17:37 THEY ARE THE SECRET TO THE RAPTURE COMING ON AND I'D LIKE TO HAVE IT, COULD BE.
  • 17:45 BUT, MAKE NO BONES ABOUT THIS HAMAS, IT'S NOTHING MUCH,
  • 17:50 A BUNCH OF GUYS WALKING DOWN THE STREETS WITH BIG GUNS THAT THEY USE TO SHOOT WOMEN
  • 17:54 OR PASSING MOTORISTS AND IRAN HAS SOMETHING, BUT ISRAEL'S WATCHING THEM.
  • 18:00 NOW, THERE MIGHT BE AN ISRAELI PULL BACK FROM THE WEST BANK UP AHEAD OF US HERE
  • 18:08 AND LIKE THE PULL BACK FROM GAZA, IT'S NOT PRETTY
  • 18:11 AND EVERYBODY PRAISING EVERYBODY AND BEATS THEIR CHEST,
  • 18:14 LISTEN, GAZA WAS A SETTLEMENT THAT REALLY WAS A BRIDGE TOO FAR, I HATE TO SAY THAT,
  • 18:21 BUT THERE WERE ONLY 2-3,000 FARMERS AND THEIR WIVES AND KIDS
  • 18:25 DOWN THERE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PALESTINIANS.
  • 18:27 IT BECAME FINALLY IMPRACTICAL TO TRY TO DEFEND THEM.
  • 18:31 THE WEST BANK HAS A QUARTER MILLION SETTLERS.
  • 18:34 IT'S WITHIN REACH OF JERUSALEM HAIFA, TEL AVIV.
  • 18:37 SO, I THINK THAT THEY'RE GOING TO DO THE SAME THING IS PULL BACK FROM OUTLYING SETTLEMENTS,
  • 18:44 GIVE THAT SCRUB LAND WHATEVER IT IS TO THE PALESTINIANS.
  • 18:47 THAT SOUNDS AWFUL, BUT IT'S IN A WAY OF CONSOLIDATING A STRONGER, SMALLER, MORE ENERGETIC ISRAEL
  • 18:58 THAT CAN ABSOLUTELY DEFEND ITSELF AND THAT MAY BE WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN, I DON'T KNOW.
  • 19:03 IT KIND OF LOOKS THAT WAY, THE WAY THEY'RE TALKING.
  • 19:15 CHRISTIAN PEOPLE HAVE BEEN ABSOLUTELY GERMANE IN HELPING ISRAEL RIGHT ALONG,
  • 19:15 YOU REALLY HAVE.
  • 19:17 I MEAN, THESE "SO CALLED ZIONISTS" OR WHATEVER YOU CALL YOURSELF,
  • 19:20 SUPPORTING THE LAND OF THE LORD, THE CHOSEN PEOPLE, THEIR PROBLEMS AND SO ON.
  • 19:26 IT'S SO DIFFERENT THAN THESE DENOMINATIONS THAT DIVEST
  • 19:29 AND THESE PEOPLE THAT CRITICIZE AND SO ON
  • 19:31 AND THE ISRAELIS HAVE BECOME CONSCIOUS OF THAT, THEY REALLY APPRECIATE IT.
  • 19:37 THE JERUSALEM POST, ONE OF THE BEST NEWSPAPER IN THE WORLD, IN FACT I TAKE IT EVERY WEEK,
  • 19:46 THEY APPROACH CHRISTIAN PEOPLE AND ASK THEM TO DO ARTICLES
  • 19:52 IN A CHRISTIAN ADDITION OF THE JERUSALEM POST.
  • 19:56 THIS IS REALLY REMARKABLE.
  • 19:58 I DON'T THINK YOU'LL LIVE TO SEE AN CHRISTIAN ADDITION OF THE NEW YORK TIMES
  • 20:01 OR THE WASHINGTON POST, BUT THEY ARE THAT IMPRESSED
  • 20:04 AND WE CHECKED IN FROM THE MAN THAT LIVES THERE ON THE GROUND EVERY DAY,
  • 20:09 MALCOLM HEDDING IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE CHRISTIAN EMBASSY OF JERUSALEM
  • 20:13 AND HE KNOWS HIS WAY AROUND OVER THERE AND WE HAD AN INTERVIEW WITH HIM.
  • 20:17 LET ME GO TO THAT NOW.
  • 20:19 I THINK THE INITIATIVE BY THE JERUSALEM POST
  • 20:24 TO PRODUCE A CHRISTIAN EDITION IS HIGHLY SIGNIFICANT
  • 20:29 BECAUSE IT'S PART OF THIS AMAZING FRIENDSHIP
  • 20:33 THAT IS DEVELOPING BETWEEN THE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIAN WORLD AND THE NATION OF ISRAEL.
  • 20:38 WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THE CHRISTIAN ALLIES CAUCUS,
  • 20:40 WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THE EVANGELICALS WHO'VE COME TO ISRAEL IN THE THOUSANDS
  • 20:43 DURING THE INTIFADA, WE'VE TALKED ABOUT THE RECOGNITION THAT ISRAELI GROUPS
  • 20:49 AND ORGANIZATIONS ARE GIVING TO EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS.
  • 20:52 IT IS ASTONISHING TO ME TO ATTEND THIS GREAT CHRISTIAN CONFERENCE,
  • 20:58 THE NATIONAL RELIGIOUS BROADCASTERS CONVENTION AND TO FIND THAT THE HALL,
  • 21:04 THE EXHIBITION HALL AND MANY OF THE OTHER FUNCTIONS ARE FULL WITH ISRAELIS AND JEWISH GROUPS
  • 21:11 WHO FEEL COMFORTABLE IN THIS EVANGELICAL WORLD.
  • 21:16 SO, THE EMERGENCE OF THIS NEW IDEA THAT CAME FROM MOSHE BAR-ZVI,
  • 21:24 HE'S THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF THE JERUSALEM POST
  • 21:28 AND HE CAME TO US AND SAID THAT HE WOULD LIKE TO PRODUCE A CHRISTIAN EDITION
  • 21:36 AND THE MOTIVATION THAT HE HAD ESSENTIALLY WAS NOT BUSINESS ORIENTATED, MONEY ORIENTATED,
  • 21:43 THOUGH IT MUST BE PLACED ON FIRM BUSINESS FOUNDATION SO THAT IT CAN SUCCEED.
  • 21:51 BUT, IT WAS A SUICIDE BOMBING IN TEL AVIV WHERE A YOUNG GIRL THAT HE KNEW
  • 21:56 THAT WAS PREPARING FOR HER WEDDING AND HAD BOOKED A CLUB ON THE BEACH FRONT OF TEL AVIV
  • 22:04 AS A SORT OF A PRE-WEDDING PARTY WHERE SHE WOULD INVITE ALL HER GUESTS,
  • 22:09 SHE ARRIVED THERE WITH HER BRIDEGROOM-TO-BE WITH A FISTFUL OF INVITATIONS
  • 22:16 AND SHE DIED HOLDING THEM IN HER HAND BECAUSE A SUICIDE WALKED IN AND OF COURSE, KILLED THEM.
  • 22:23 MOSHE LOOKING AT THIS ON THE TELEVISION NETWORKS THE NEXT DAY
  • 22:33 SAW THIS STRANGE THING THAT GOES ON, YOU SEE, THAT MORE ATTENTION WAS PAID TO THE KILLER'S MOTHER
  • 22:40 AND WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY AND THE PICTURE OF HER SON
  • 22:45 THAN TO THE VICTIM AND THE YOUNG PEOPLE THAT WERE MURDERED IN THAT THING
  • 22:51 AND MOSHE, WHO IS HIMSELF INVOLVED IN MEDIA
  • 22:54 SAID HE WAS SHAKEN THAT IN A WAY THE KILLER BECOMES THE VICTIM
  • 23:00 AND THE VICTIM BECOMES THE KILLER AND THIS IS A DISTORTION
  • 23:04 THAT HAS GONE OUT TIME AND TIME AGAIN IN THIS CONFLICT
  • 23:09 AND IT WAS THEN THAT HE SAID I HAVE TO MAKE A CONTRIBUTION IN THIS REGARD.
  • 23:16 AND ISN'T IT REMARKABLE THAT AGAIN, HE SAID WHO ARE OUR FRIENDS?
  • 23:21 WHERE CAN WE PRODUCE SOMETHING WHERE THE TRUTH WILL BE TOLD
  • 23:25 WITHOUT THIS POLITICAL CORRECT THING ALL THE TIME
  • 23:29 AND HE ENDED UP IN MY OFFICE AND SAID TO ME, MALCOLM, WILL YOU PARTNER WITH ME?
  • 23:35 WILL YOU HELP ME WITH THE EDITORIAL CONTENT?
  • 23:38 WILL YOU HELP US TELL THE TRUTH AND WILL YOU BE PART OF A NEW PRODUCT, A STAND ALONE PRODUCT
  • 23:45 THAT WILL TAKE THE BRANDING OF THE JERUSALEM POST TO THE CHRISTIAN WORLD?
  • 23:50 NOW, THE JERUSALEM POST IS THE MOST FAMOUS PAPER IN ISRAEL
  • 23:55 AND THE MOST WELL KNOWN ISRAELI PAPER IN THE WORLD
  • 24:00 BECAUSE OF ITS ENGLISH ADDITION, INTERNATIONAL EDITION,
  • 24:03 BUT DO YOU KNOW THAT IT'S PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS PAPERS IN THE WORLD ANYWAY,
  • 24:09 IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER IT SERVED THE JEWISH OR NOT,
  • 24:12 IT RANKS NEXT TO THE NEW YORK TIMES, THE GUARDIAN OR THE TIMES OF LONDON OR WHATEVER.
  • 24:17 IT IS SO WELL KNOWN AND YET THIS COMPANY, WHICH COVERS ISRAEL
  • 24:25 AND HAS THE RESPECT OF EVERYONE IN ISRAEL
  • 24:28 DECIDED TO PARTNER WITH EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS.
  • 24:31 THIS IS AMAZING AND WE HAVE PARTNERED WITH THEM AGAIN AS A FRIENDSHIP STATEMENT
  • 24:38 BETWEEN EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS AND ISRAEL TO GET THE TRUTH OUT
  • 24:43 ABOUT WHAT REALLY IS HAPPENING IN ISRAEL, TO TELL THE STORY OBJECTIVELY
  • 24:48 WITHOUT OUR OWN AGENDA AND OUR OWN COMMENT IN THE WAY
  • 24:52 AND THE PAPER OR THE MAGAZINE AS IT IS NOW, WILL ALSO DEAL WITH THEOLOGICAL ISSUES.
  • 24:59 WE'LL TAKE THEM HEAD-ON BECAUSE WE WANT THE PAPER TO BE CUTTING EDGE
  • 25:02 AND EVEN CONTROVERSIAL BECAUSE THAT MAKES GOOD READING.
  • 25:06 LET'S TELL THE STORY, LET'S TAKE ON THE BIG ISSUES TO DO WITH THE REGION,
  • 25:11 WITH ISLAM AND ALL THESE OTHER MATTERS WE'VE TALKED ABOUT
