Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal told CBS News and PBS host Charlie Rose that he "cannot live under occupation," in portions of a wide-ranging interview that were broadcast today, July 28, 2014 on CBS This Morning (7:00-9:00 AM) Watch a clip below!

Rose spoke with Meshaal for an hour over the weekend in Doha, Qatar, where they discussed the current state of violence between Israel and Palestine. Meshaal likened the conflict to the American Revolution, telling Rose that he believes Hamas can defeat Israel militarily.

"Time and time again in the history of nations says that peoples have the upper hand over the occupation," Meshaal told Rose. "I have will. I can die because of Israel. I cannot live under occupation. Occupation is the worst thing that you can ever imagine. So every single Palestinian can die for the next generations to live in peace and freedom."

Excerpts of the interview were broadcast today on CBS This Morning and the complete interview will be broadcast tonight, July 28, 2014 in a special presentation of Charlie Rose on PBS.

Excerpts of the interview are below.

CHARLIE ROSE: This is former President Bill Clinton-quote-"Hamas was perfectly well-aware of what would happen if they started raining rockets on Israeli. They fired 1,000 of them. And they have a strategy designed to force Israel to kill their own civilians so the rest of the world will condemn them." That's President Clinton. Not an Israeli. A man who worked hard to create peace between Palestinians and Israelis.

KHALED MESHAAL: With all due respect to Mr. Clinton, unfortunately the world doesn't want to blame the Israelis. Why do you call for security for Israel and why don't you call for lifting the siege and stopping the occupation on the Palestinians? Why don't you give the right to live for the Palestinians as the other nations? This is actually the last occupation in the world.

ROSE: Let me ask you this, do you believe that you can solve this by violence? Do you believe you can solve this with a military power? Is this going to end because one side is militarily going to defeat the other?
