On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight,” Democratic Senate intelligence committee chairwoman Dianne Feinstein reaffirmed her support of Israel and came close to accusing Hamas of war crimes.
“I hope people see Hamas for what it is, and that is using their own people as human shields,” Feinstein said. “Putting these missiles and rockets in places right in the middle of residential areas, in homes and mosques and parks — you don’t do this. I mean, this borders on being an international war crime. Now the problem is, Hamas isn’t a member of either of the organizations — the Geneva Conventions or others that would hold this as a war crime. So, it’s a very difficult situation. Our solidarity has to be with Israel. This is a point where Israel has been under attack for a long period of time, and nothing has solved it.”
Feinstein went on to emphasize the importance of a two-state solution, and praised Palestine Liberation Organization head Mahmoud Abbas.
