A hostage swap took place recently between the U.S. and Iran. Sanctions against Iran were lifted and nations are looking to help them build new nuclear facilities. This is in spite of the fact that this is a nation that has vowed to wipe Israel off the face of the earth.

Joining Jim to discuss the ramifications of this news was David Rubin. David is the former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, and is founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children's Fund dedicated to healing the trauma of child victims of terrorist attacks and rebuilding the heartland of Israel. He is the author of 4 books including: Sparks from Zion and The Islamic Tsunami: Israel and America in the Age of Obama.

David is against prisoner swaps because he feels it encourages the taking of more hostages. He thinks the release of our hostages should have been demanded long ago as a precondition to the negotiations but it wasn't. Yes, they've been released, as have been some Iranians by the U.S., but something else is being released: 150 billion dollars which David believes won't go to stacking supermarkets with produce or putting food on the table of citizens. Instead he believes the money will be used for military purposes as well as to export the Islamic revolution.

David described 2 aspects to this revolution. The first involves the tsunami of terrorism and the second involves trying to take over the world demographically. In other words, major funding is being given toward this effort to export Muslims and to finance the sneeking of such individuals, such as illegal aliens, into Europe and into the U.S.

How does David feel Israel will respond to this news and what's the latest concerning terror attacks in Israel? Who were these individuals that our government released? What are we to make of Russian President Putin's invitation to Jews in Europe facing anti-semitism to return to Russia? How does David feel about the presidential race in the U.S.? These along with caller questions are answered on this vital edition of Crosstalk.

Christian persecution around the world has reached unprecedented levels. 2015 is said to have been the deadliest year for Christians worldwide.

Discussing this trend with Jim was Emily Fuentes. Emily is the communications director of Open Doors USA, an organization that has worked in the world's most oppressive countries, empowering Christians who are persecuted for their beliefs. Open Doors equips Christians in more than 60 countries.

Jim began by putting things in perspective. He did this by having Emily define just what is meant when she speaks of persecution. Persecution, as defined by Open Doors USA, materializes in different ways based on the nations they are working in. They categorize persecution in six different areas such as violence, persecution from family members, the larger community, government and more.

Emily reported that from what they've observed, there was a drastic increase in Christian deaths throughout the world. That's based upon a conservative marking scale. It's conservative because Open Doors USA only reports those deaths where they have the actual verification of the person's name, date of death, etc. so she believes the actual number of Christian deaths is even higher.

Open Doors USA had never seen a year like 2014 for persecutions and they were afraid that 2015 would be even more violent. That came true as the death toll doubled with many more instances of violent persecution. So in 2015, a nation required a 4% increase in persecution just to get on the World Watch List.

Jim noticed that some nations have more persecution but they declined in rank on the World Watch List. This included Syria, Sudan, Tanzania, Algeria and Turkey. Why is this? It's because persecution has become that much worse in other nations.

Other nations on the Open Doors USA Worldwide Watch List that were referenced on this broadcast included: North Korea, Iraq, Eritrea, Pakistan, Libya, Bahrain, Niger, Iran, Mexico and the nations that make up the former Soviet Union.

Jim began by noting that the Daily Signal reported in 2015 that there were more Islamist inspired terror attacks and plots within the U.S. than the years 2012, 2013 and 2014 combined. In spite of this we have an administration and a Congress that has dulled its ears to the threat that Islam poses to America. After all, it's just a religion of peace. Or is it?

Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Robert Spencer. Robert is the director of Jihad Watch. He has led seminars on Islam and jihad for the FBI, the United States Central Command, the United States Army Command and General Staff College and numerous other entities including the Joint Terrorism Task Force. He has been banned by the British government from entering the United Kingdom for the crime of pointing out that Islam has doctrines of violence against unbelievers. He is the Vice President of the American Freedom Defense Initiative and a weekly columnist for PJ Media and FrontPage Magazine. He is the author of 14 books including 'The Truth About Muhammad' and 'The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam'.

According to Robert, ISIS is known as the Islamic State because everything they do is based upon Islam. Everything they do you can find justification for within Islamic texts and teachings. Proof of this is shown by the fact that through worldwide recruitment they now have 30,000 foreign Muslims in Iraq and Syria fighting with ISIS. So to say that Islam has nothing to do with ISIS is to cut off our ability to deal with it.

Can the Islamic State destroy the U.S.? Robert believes they may not be able to do that entirely, however, this is something that they do explicitly state. What they can do and are working toward is to completely destabilize the U.S. to the point that they disrupt our law enforcement, intelligence and government apparatus. The idea is to overwhelm our nation with numerous terror plots to the point that we collapse.

Jim had Robert answer a number of questions and deal with numerous other issues related to this topic including:

--How does he see the future of Europe as it relates to Islam's control?
--Why isn't our government able to 'connect the dots' on this issue of Islam and
--An Islamic State manual that teaches Muslims to pretend to be Christians.
--Two Virginia Muslims have been charged with attempting to support ISIS. Why are
we seeing such interest by some individuals to join this group?
--Are we tracking those who join ISIS and then come back?
--An Islamist is running 140 taxpayer funded charter schools in 26 American
states. Who is running these and what is his agenda?
--How have school textbook publishers been affected by the multicultural
imperative, especially as it pertains to Islam?
--What about the intimidation of American businesses and industry to become
Shariah compliant? What part does the Council on American-Islamic Relations
(CAIR) have to do with this?
--Has any community been successful in stopping a mosque from being formed?
--Are there a lot of people who claim to be followers of Islam but have no clue
regarding what the Qur'an really teaches?

Back in June, 5 members of the U.S. Supreme Court 'discovered' that the Constitution of the United States grants the so-called right to same-sex marriage. This was done in spite of the fact that such a matter was repulsive to our nation's founders. While many states have ignored their own state constitutions and bowed to the court in this matter, the chief justice of Alabama, Justice Roy Moore, is holding firm.

Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Mat Staver. Mat is the founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, an international nonprofit litigation, education and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life and the family. He has authored hundreds of articles, five scholarly law review publications, numerous brochures and booklets and 11 books, most of which focus on constitutional law. His two most recent books are: Eternal Vigilance: Knowing and Protecting Your Religious Freedom and Same-Sex Marriage: Putting Every Household at Risk.

This Crosstalk began with an update concerning Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis who was in attendance at President Obama's final State of the Union address.

Chief Justice Roy Moore of the Alabama Supreme Court issued an order last week that Alabama probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment or the Alabama Marriage Protection Act. Does Moore have the authority to do this?

Mat says he does because as the chief justice, Moore is the overseer of all of the probate judges in the state. You may recall that this case began last year when a single federal judge said that Alabama's marriage laws are unconstitutional. At that point some of the probate judges began issuing same-sex marriage licenses. Justice Moore issued an administrative order saying that Alabama's laws were still binding. After that, Liberty Counsel filed suit directly with the Alabama Supreme Court. The Alabama Supreme Court then said probate judges are barred from issuing the licenses and they must comply with the Alabama law. The U.S. Supreme Court opinion came down after that on June 26th and now Justice Moore has reiterated that the law in his state defines marriage as one man and one woman.

Is this a ridiculous move on the part of Justice Moore to go against the U.S. Supreme Court in this way? Going back into history, Mat references a Wisconsin case from the Dred Scott days, Dr. Martin Luther King's Letter from Birmingham Jail and the Buck vs. Bell case to show that there are times when some people believe that an unjust law is the law of the land and therefore we must move on. However, in light of our Constitution, these cases actually debunk that notion and in the end prove that marriage is between one man and one woman.

Mat also comments on the president's executive orders, Syrian refugees, the transgender restroom issue and more.

Jim began this edition of Crosstalk with news that Al Jazeera America, a television news network that went on the air in 2013, has announced that it is shutting down at the end of April due to economic reasons.

The Human Rights Campaign listed five highlights from President Obama's final State of the Union address last evening:

--The White House guest list included members of the LGBT community.
--The celebration of marriage equality victory.
--Recommitment to ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
--The president spoke directly to LGBT Americans claiming that a year from now
when he no longer holds the presidency, he will be right there with the LGBT
community as a citizen.
--Focused on LGBTQ youth and families.

Jim went on to note that there were pro-LGBT changes made to the White House website on the very day President Obama was inaugurated. He then moved on to take a look at the HRC's list of Obama administration policy advancements on behalf of LGBT Americans and in particular, their warning that in spite of all this progress, they feel their greatest battles are still ahead.
