On the backdrop of what was a seventh consecutive day of violence in the Middle East, on Tuesday "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited Dianne Feinstein to the program to share her vast insight on the conflict between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas.
As Egyptian president Mohamed Morsy attempts to broker peace in the region, Feinstein shares her opinion of those launching airstrikes out of Gaza:
"I hope people see Hamas for what it is, and that is using their own people as human shields. Putting these missiles and rockets in places right in the middle of residential areas, in homes and mosques and parks," explains the Chairwoman of the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. "You don't do this. I mean, this borders on being an international war crime."
Moving forward, Feinstein insisted that the ultimate goal should be achieving a two-state solution, and the woman for the job may have just arrived:
"Perhaps the Secretary of State will play a very dominant role," says Feinstein, of Hillary Clinton who landed in Jerusalem Tuesday. "After all, her husband [former president Bill Clinton] came the closest of anybody to establishing a two-state solution. So, she knows exactly where all of this stands and what might be able to solve what has been an historic and very difficult situation."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as the senior United States Senator from California provides increased intel on the dangerous struggle over the border between Israel and Gaza.
