400-408 Brigitte Gabriel, founder of ActForAmerica.org, and author of the best-seller They Must Be Stopped:  Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It. 
Brigitte grew up in a Christian family as an only-child of well-to-do elderly parents in a small town in Lebanon near the Israeli border.  In 1975, when she was just 10, her town was overrun by militant Palestinian Muslims during the Lebanese Civil War, her home was bombed, and she and her family were forced to escape, losing their home, their restaurant, and their life savings.  She was severely injured in the attack and spent 2 1/2 months in a hospital recovering.  She and her parents were forced to live in an 8'x10' bomb shelter underground for seven years with only a small kerosene heater, no sanitary systems, no electricity, and no running water and little food.  To get water she would have to crawl in a ditch alongside a road to a spring in order to evade Muslim snipers. She grew up to become a news anchor for World News, the Arabic evening news broadcast for Middle East Television, a Christian television station seen throughout Israel, Egypt, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon. She covered the Israeli withdrawal from central Lebanon, the Israeli Security Zone and the Palestinian uprising in the West Bank and Gaza.  She immigrated to the United States in 1989, and now heads Act for America, an organization warning the world about the threat of radical Islam – a threat she saw realized in her own life, family, and country.  She now has 340 chapters across the country, 30 here in California, and a total of 80,000 members, and she employs a full-time lobbyist on capitol hill.
Wednesday's test was for the latest version of Iran's longest-range missile, the Sajjil-2, with a range of about 1,200 miles (2,000 kilometers). That range places Israel, Iran's sworn enemy, well within reach, as well as U.S. bases in the Gulf region and parts of southeastern Europe.

528-538(1:23) Jesus on the cross (Byron Barrett WHDH Taunton, Mass @ 12/15/09) Chester Johnson's 8-year-old son, Jalen Cromwell, was sent home from school after drawing Jesus on the cross as his "Christmas symbol" on December 2nd.  The boy was taken out of school for depicting a "violent act," questioned by the principal, then ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation.  The evaluator said he was not a threat to himself or other and should return to school.  Jalen doesn't want to return to the same school.
(2:03) Latest Developments. (WPRI Nineka Nwosu @ 12/16/09)  The School Superintendent, Julie Hackett, says the drawing is just the latest in a series of incidents involving the child and that the psychological evaluation had nothing to do with his religious beliefs.  He was not suspended for drawing a picture of Jesus.  Chester Johnson says his son is traumatized. 
(2:06) School dist. defends itself (Walt Buteau WPRI East Providence Rhode Island @ 12/16/09).  Julie Hackett denies he was ever suspended, denies that the picture of Jesus was the one that precipitated the teacher's response, that there was another picture, and denies there was ever an assignment to draw a Christmas picture at all.
