On Thursday, Piers Morgan welcomed Sean Stone for a candid, and revealing interview, during which the filmmaker shared his unique perspectives on the Middle East.
The son of legendary director Oliver Stone, young Stone recently converted to Islam while in Iran, and has had meetings and discussions with current Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
When asked why a man of Jewish upbringing would be interested in spending time with a leader who calls the Holocaust a "big deception," Stone offered his stance:
"Regardless if he believes it or not, it does not justify – to our thinking at least – the occupation of the West Bank, and the fact that the Palestinian situation has not been resolved in that region," explained Stone. "I don't care if he believes in the Holocaust. I don't want to see our country go to war."
As the fascinating interview continued, The 27-year-old director expressed his hopes for peace and nonviolence, while attempting to clarify what he considers to be untruths regarding the Middle East.
"My issue, really, is I don't want to see our country go to war, and, you know, if it's going to be over the potential threat that Iran is to Israel, I would say that's a complete lie," explained Stone. "We are in a very dangerous situation – precarious situation – right now, if Israel gets the green light, and attacks preemptively Iran, the way that we preemptively attacked Iraq. That's what I'm most concerned about."
