Two civilians from Gaza and Israel respond to the cease-fire

Tonight at 9 p.m., upon the news of today's announced cease-fire in Israel and Gaza, Piers Morgan speaks to two civilians on both sides of the conflict, Ameera Ahmad in Gaza and Natalie Edelman in Tel Aviv.

"I'm sure that she's facing a difficult reality," says Edelman to Ahmad during their opportunity to talk directly to each other via satellite and Skype. "We are dealing with a terrorist organization. Hamas is controlling Gaza at the moment and that is a problem."

Disagreeing with Edelman, Ahmad responds, "when they decided to make the Palestinian election it was a free election and the people, they choose Hamas. The Israeli side, they should respect their choice as a people they are going to represent the Palestinian people. If it is a terrorist organization it doesn't mean that all the Palestinian people are terrorist people."

Watch the clip and listen to the interview as "Piers Morgan Tonight" continues their coverage of events in Israel and Gaza.

Rudy Giuliani on Chris Christie: "He put his state first"

Tonight at 9 Rudy Giuliani returns to "Piers Morgan Tonight" to talk politics both abroad and at home.

During the interview, Piers Morgan asks the one time GOP presidential candidate for his take on the recent criticism of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Christie's support of President Barack Obama in the aftermath of superstorm Sandy.

"I think Chris [Christie] did what he had to do as a governor, he put his state first," says Giuliani. "There are some people who are annoyed about it, I think they're being somewhat narrow and not realizing a governor has a first obligation to the people of his state."

Tune in this evening at 9 as Giuliani shares why Christie is the former New York mayor's first pick for the next president of the United States.

Clips From Last Night: Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister and Chief P.L.O. Representative to U.S. on the Israel-Gaza conflict

While the violence in Israel and Gaza continued despite efforts to broker a cease-fire on Tuesday evening, Piers Morgan spoke to Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister, Danny Ayalon. The foreign minister expressed his concern for the civilians in Gaza and explained that the areas targeted by the Israeli airstrikes are in unavoidable populated areas.

"All the places, the bunkers, the launchers of Hamas are specifically in populated areas," insisted Ayalon. "They fire out of mosques, out of kindergartens, out of schools, and out of hospitals."

"But I think we are trying to be very, very careful," continued Ayalon. "And I hope we will not get into a land operation but if we do, we will give enough time for the population to leave the area and designating safe routes for them to leave the area so hopefully only the Hamas people will stand bare there to face our incoming troops."

Chief P.L.O. Representative to U.S., Maen Areikat was also on the program and spoke about the underlying political issue surrounding the conflict. "People in the midst of this coverage about the violence there and the killings there tend to forget that this is a political issue," said Areikat. FULL POST
