Is there a way forward for Israelis and Palestinians that doesn't involve more violence? We'll get views from both inside and outside the Gaza Strip today. Plus, reporter Isaac Stone Fish visits the world's largest Starbucks in Shanghai to ask patrons whether they'd give up their American coffee if the Chinese government asked them to. And Alina Simone, who has a Russian background herself, talks about why she'd rather have her daughter learn Mandarin than Russian.
