“The View” co-host Joy Behar called out Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-MI., on Tuesday for repeatedly refusing to admit Israel was not responsible for an explosion at a hospital in Gaza and accused her of spreading “lies like Trump.”“The View” co-hosts discussed antisemitism amid the war between Hamas and Israel. Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin called out Harvard graduate students and others for claiming that Israel was “entirely responsible for the unfolding violence.”“That is what Jews have faced since before the Holocaust, but since the Holocaust. They are one of the only groups whose right to exist is constantly questioned and they have to defend it. It’s right, left, center. I’ve called it out when it’s on the right, so I’m going to call it out when it’s on the left. Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, they have dabbled in dangerous antisemitism,” Griffin said.Behar said Tlaib “still will not admit that that attack on the hospital came from Hamas.” “They have videos showing it, but she goes out there and lies like Trump,” Behar continued. Co-host Sara Haines quoted Barack Obama, who said previous Israeli governments have made efforts to provide a two-state solution, but that the other side has long rebuffed it.“You can say Israel has questionable policies. Jewish people feel that. I’ve seen that, they have questionable policy. Where is the rage when people talk about them living, Palestinians, living in an open air policy that the governing body intercepts aid? Whereas Israel built bomb shelters, Hamas built tunnels to further attack its neighbors. “This is what it comes down to, you are either pro-co-existence which means Israel has a right to exist, and Palestine. Obama quotes in his speech that there have been instances in which previous Israeli governments made meaningful efforts to resolve the dispute and provide a path for a two-state solution, efforts ultimately rebuffed time and time again from the other side,” Haines said.Co-host Sunny Hostin said she wanted to remind everyone that, “Hamas hasn’t had a free democratic election since 2005.” Tlaib tripled down on the Hamas narrative that Israel was behind last week’s explosion at a Gaza hospital in a statement on Monday. “Media outlets and third-party analysts have raised doubts about claims and evidence offered by both Israel and the Gaza Ministry of Health, and I agree with the United Nations that an independent investigation is necessary,” Tlaib said. “I cannot uncritically accept Israel’s denials of responsibility as fact, especially in light of confirmation from the World Health Organization that Israel has bombed numerous medical facilities in Gaza and reports from the Palestinian Red Crescent Society of ongoing threats from the Israeli military to evacuate hospital.”Tlaib’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
