The best in the world go behind the scenes of Israel's controversial, targeted. Kills and see, how the nation has fought extermination. After, this. Boko. Haram militants have. Set free the Nigerian, schoolgirls after. Abducting, them from their village a month ago a witness, said the fighters told residents they, had returned, the girls quote out of pity but, warned them don't ever put your daughters in school, again Boko. Haram translates, as Western. Education, is forbidden in, the, local house of language villagers, say about 72. Of the 110, girls have been returned in 2014. The group abducted. 276. Schoolgirls from. Chibok and about, 100. Of them have never returned, to their families.
Since. It's very beginning Israel. Has faced extermination. From its enemies so the Jewish state has fought back in a number of ways including through, the controversial, use, of assassinations. As Chris, Mitchell reports from Jerusalem, for the first time we're, learning why this deadly, technique, plays such a part in Israel's, history. In. 1983. 241. Americans, died in the Marine Barracks bombing, in Beirut Lebanon. Israel's. Assassination. Of Ahmad, Minea the mastermind. Behind that, bombing is one. Reason why many consider. Israel's. Intelligence. Services, the best in the world a new, book tells why the. Book is called rise and, kill first the, secret history of Israel's, targeted, assassinations. Award-winning. Journalist ronen, bergman told, CBN, News the, title, comes from an ancient Jewish writing, he, heard quoted, by members, of Israel's, intelligence. Services, they, used the, phrase from, the babylonian talmud which. Says if someone, comes to kill you rise, up and kill, him first the, mindset, which says when. Every. Decade, your. Prime nemesis. Your. Chief, adversary. Your main enemy, declares. Publicly. That, its main goal is to destroy israel then, there's no other choice but rise up and kill, him first since. Its founding that's been the public goal of israel's enemies from. Saddam Hussein, to Yasser, Arafat. To Iran's machmood. Ahmed indigent all of these when they are your, enemies, you would do whatever you can to, defend. Your, country in your people, Bergman says after the Holocaust, Jews, followed, three lessons that. Permeate, Israel's, intelligence. Services, first, is that there will always be a, Gentile, who is after us kills second. All or, most of the other Gentiles, will not help so, we can rely, only on ourselves and third, is that we need to have a safe heaven a refuge. A country. Of our own to defend it and to defend it we'd only possible. In his book, Bergman. Explains, the secret, that makes Israel's, intelligence, the best in the world but, there's one extra thought, and that, thought is, that they are the, guards on the wall. They. Are if, borrowing, a phrase from Star, Trek they are the final frontier, guarding. The safety, of the, country and the security, of the citizens of Israel and Jews, worldwide not. Just in Israel they, believe that if they don't work today with. Everything. They have. Then. Tomorrow Jews are gonna be killed Bergman's, book takes readers through how Mossad, chief Meir. Dagan urged. Israeli. Prime Minister Benjamin, Netanyahu. And then, Defense Minister Abe Hood Barak to, use assassinations. And cyber, warfare against, Iran instead. Of bombing its nuclear, facilities, he. Also describes, the elimination. Of Hezbollah, commander Ahmad. Bonilla the, most wanted terrorist in the world and how, yes Arafat, escaped. Dozens, of assassination. Attempts, we, asked about the dilemma of targeted. Killings there, are two questions that the relevant is it effective, and is it legally. And morally justified. In, describing, an effective, example, he, pointed, to the Second, Intifada when. Palestinian. Suicide bombings. Killed, and maimed thousands. Of Israelis, Bergman. Says Israel, didn't, go after the Bombers but, their leaders, but, when Israel started, to kill all the, layer the the hierarchy, above them the, bomb makers didn't decorators they recruit, the drivers, the regional commands the military commander politically, then these people those, who were, not yet killed, who had no problem, with sending other people to the death, well they had another thought they did not want, to check by themselves, if the, option of the 72 virgin, is true or not. After. 9/11. The rules changed, and the US began targeted, killings with help from Israel's, intelligence, expertise, now. Many Western, nations also follow, the Israeli model targeted. Killings remain an intense debate and only, Israel's, Prime Minister can, approve them yet. With all her success, Bergman. Quotes one ex Mossad, chief who. Summed up their dilemma at the core of what we did every, day in, Mossad, was. That dilemma of. What. Does a democracy. Under. Grave, threats allow, itself, to take, and do to, defend its citizens while, it knows that it's, unfortunately. Might, violate other values, Bergman's. Book took eight years to, write and includes. More than 1,000. Interviews, on the, eve of Israel's, 70th, anniversary, Bergman. The son of two Holocaust, survivors, sees. It as a contribution, to. The ongoing, remarkable. Story sometimes. I walk in the streets of his voice and I say this is really, America I think what was achieved here during, the last, 110.
Years Since. The early 20th, century can. Not, be described. As nothing by, but, a miracle and. I'm, so, happy to be part of that Chris. Mitchell CBN News Jerusalem. Still. Ahead chronic. Diseases, and, you are putting it in your body whether you know it or not here, how you can break your sugar, addiction and, restore, your health next. Welcome. Back if you made it your goal to be healthier, in 2018. One doctor, says there's one thing you can do to turn things around with your health as CBN. News medical reporter, Laurie Johnson reports, there's growing evidence that, consuming lots, of sugar is deadly, and addictive and, giving, it up can change your quality of life for years to come. When. We think of addiction. We tend to focus on drugs and alcohol, but more doctors, say we should also consider, sugar. Sugar. Is, the. Source, of all chronic disease it's. One of the biggest contributors and, we, know that solid. Tumors cancers. Feed. On sugar. Dr.. Vincent Padre, is one of a growing number of physicians, warning. Consuming. Too much sugar not. Only fuels cancer, but also heart, disease and Alzheimer's, and. Let me clarify that because when I say consuming, too much sugar people, think well, I don't need dessert so, I don't, have a lot of sugar but, then they're eating bread, rice. Pasta. Or. Scones they're, not thinking of that as sugar but, sugar comes from all of these sources we. Break down the carbohydrates. And they become sugar. An, estimated, three-fourths, of Americans, are addicted, to sugar and don't, know it but, food manufacturers. Do they, add sugar to nearly, everything, including. Things that might not seem sweet like, crackers, and yogurt, to, keep customers, coming back, for more most. People might be shocked to discover they, consume, 100. Times more sugar. Than, their ancestors. Did back in the 1800s. And that's. At the root of their health issues, bloating. Abdominal. Pain. But. Also sinus. Congestion. Mental. Fog. Memory. Issues. Fatigue. Achiness. Joint. Pains these. Are all symptoms, of consuming. Too much sugar in, all of its forms but. People don't connect the two, scientists. Used lab animals, to prove, sugar, is even, more addictive, than illicit. Drugs. So sugar stimulates, the same parts of the brain as cocaine. So. I tell people that sugar, is cocaine for your brain and. By. That I mean it affects the dopamine pathways, and dopamine. Is the neurotransmitter, that makes you feel good things. Are great, a little. Is never, enough, because, that's the design, of the, neural. Circuit, in the brain it's gonna want more, hits and it, keeps wanting more and more because it becomes desensitized, to. Small amounts that's why he recommends, quitting, sweets, cold turkey, the craving, is not. Gonna last longer. Than 10 to 20 minutes. So. If you don't give in to the craving, initially. Eventually, it's gonna pass because your body is gonna realize that it doesn't really need that for, survival, or at least substituting. Whole fruit, now the the, chocolate chip cookie is going to be a much faster hit, for. The brain so. You get that that much that quicker satisfaction. If, you, have a fruit, let's say an orange or some berries, you.
Need To give it a little more time the. Feedback is gonna happen it's just going to take a couple of minutes when. It comes to sugar substitutes. While whole fruit is okay avoid. Artificial. Sweeteners. Because research, shows they're actually, worse than the real thing, in his book happy, gut dr. Pedroia explains, that, artificial. Sweeteners harm, our immune, system, by disrupting the bacteria. In our digestive. Tract it reduces, a type, of bacteria, that tends to be found in lean healthy, people and it increases, another. Type of bacteria, in this Janice called Bacteroides, that. Is found in people that are obese studies. Show people who regularly, use, artificial. Sweeteners, gain, more, weight their, ingredients. Trigger insulin. Resistance, if. You're becoming deaf and you have to turn the, the volume up higher, your. Body is becoming deaf to the signal, the insulin, signal, so. Your body jacks. Up the, insulin but if insulin is high what. Happens is it tells your body it turns on genes that. Say store. Fat, the, good news, intermittent, fasting can, often reverse, insulin, issues, that, means for instance going, without food for 12 hours, the. Idea behind intermittent, fasting is that when you're not eating you're, allowing your insulin, levels to drop, you're. Allowing insulin, receptors, to reset. So. Then what's happening, towards the end of the fast is you're increasing, insulin. Sensitivity, so. You're making your body insulin, sensitive, again. Intermittent. Fasting also, repairs. Our cells and turns, on, longevity. Genes, so. It might not be easy but giving. Up sweets, in their many forms, including, artificial, sweeteners. Could. Pay off big-time. Lori. Johnson CBN News.
