Even ‘The View’ Has Turned against Pro-Hamas Squad Members

(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) The ladies of The View attacked pro-Hamas Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., for not acknowledging the Muslim group’s culpabilaty for an alleged missile strike on a hospital in Gaza.

Far-left host Joy Behar, who is Jewish, went as far as comparing Tlaib to her arch-nemesis, former President Donald Trump.

“Rashida will still not admit that that attack on the hospital came from Hamas,” Behar said, gesticulating accusingly. “They had video showing it but she goes out there and lies like Trump.”

While many mainstream media sources initially accepted the claims from the Hamas-run hospital that

The recent turmoil in the Holy Land has led to an uncomfortable situation for Democrats domestically as they find their party split over support for Israel, which was the victim of an unfathomable act of terrorism on Oct. 7 at the hands of Hamas.

Key leftist constituencies—including members of the Squad, anonymous congressional staffers, privileged Ivy League college students and Black Lives Matters activists—have all expressed their solidarity with Hamas or called for Israel to suspend its military campaign and continue to coexist with the terrorist organization that slaughtered some 1,300 innocent Israeli civilians, livestreaming the rape and torture of many of them, and taking 200 more to use as hostages.

However, other members of the Democrat establishment have backed the Biden administration’s official policy in supporting Israel’s right to self-defense.

Meanwhile, Jewish liberal groups such as the powerful Anti-Defamation League have found themselves conflicted by the abandonment of some of their traditional media allies, who have skewed their reporting in favor of the Palestinians.

View co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin noted that “57% of Jewish students on college campuses report experiencing an anti-Semitic incident.”

Fellow co-host Whoopi Goldberg remained uncharacteristically quiet during the segment, likely due to her past comments on Judaism having gotten her into trouble with the ABC network.

In an interview with the Sunday Times last year, Goldberg argued that the Holocaust was not racially motivated, because both Nazis and Jews were white.

“Remember who they were killing first,” Goldberg said. “They were not killing racial; they were killing physical. They were killing people they considered to be mentally defective. And then they made this decision.”

She attempted to defend herself on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, insisting that the issue was of ethnicity, not race.

Goldberg, who identifies as Jewish, also suggested that Nazis targeted Jews because of mental defects.

Before these comments, Goldberg faced suspension for two weeks without pay for similar statements on the Holocaust.

The network required Goldberg to apologize on air shortly after the incident.

“On today’s show, I said the Holocaust ‘is not about race, but about man’s inhumanity to man,’” she wrote.

“I should have said it is about both,” she added. “As Jonathan Greenblatt from the Anti-Defamation League shared, ‘The Holocaust was about the Nazi’s systematic annihilation of the Jewish people—who they deemed to be an inferior race.’ I stand corrected.”
