California Dreaming?

Sen. Dianne Feinstein is concerned that Syria has given Iranian-backed Hezbollah advanced Scud missiles, which the terrorist group plans to use in a new war against Israel. So far so good, right? But then:

“There’s only one thing that’s going to solve it, and that’s a two-state solution,” she said, referring to stalled international efforts to create an independent, viable Palestinian state living at peace with Israel.

It is not possible that Senator Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, believes that Hezbollah, Iran, and Syria would be satisfied with a two-state solution — assuming that one of those states is Israel. It is not possible that she could know so little about those who run Hezbollah, Iran, and Syria.

But is there any other way to interpret her comment?
