As violence and unrest continued in Gaza and Israel, Alan Dershowitz, Reza Aslan and Mark Perry sat down with Piers Morgan live on Monday evening to discuss the conflict.
"Israel is targeting as best they can only terrorists," said Dershowitz to which Morgan countered, "They killed a whole family yesterday."
"But the reason is because Hamas was firing rockets in order to induce them to kill the whole family," explained Dershowitz. "It's called the dead baby strategy."
"They want their children to be martyred so they can carry them out, show them to the international media and thereby gain an advantage over Israel," continued Dershowitz. "It's a double war crime and the media encourages it."
Aslan spoke to the impact of the conflict in the Middle East explaining, "the longer it continues, whether a cease-fire is possible or not, the longer it continues the more devastating it's going to be towards Israel."
"Not just the fact that more and more civilians and more children are going to inevitably die, but Israel's legitimacy on the international stage is going to continue to deteriorate."
Perry, a Middle East expert with contacts to Hamas at a senior level, gave his insight on a possible cease-fire. "I think the principles for a cease-fire are in place," said Perry. "An end to the siege, that's what Hamas wants. An end to the siege of the targeting of their leadership."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interviews, as Perry explains how the Egyptian government would need to be involved to maintain the Israel-Gaza ceasefire.
