During Tuesday’s panel, co-hosts of “The View” criticized Sunny Hostin for suggesting that Israelis also perpetrate war crimes.
The co-hosts responded to Hostin’s claim that Israel’s airstrikes and assaults against Palestinian civilians violate international human rights law.
“We need to also recognize that the Palestinians that are there now that are descendants of refugees have not had a democratic election since 2007, okay?” Hostin said.
“That’s because of Hamas. That’s because of Hamas.” co-host Joy Behar interjected.
“And so, when you look at international human rights law — I’m just putting my legal hat on, this is not the Sunny hat. I understand the anger, but when you decide to retaliate collectively against a people, that is also in violation of human rights law,” Hostin shot back.
“Hamas has its people as human shields,” co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin replied.
“The Israelis are warning all of the civilians. But the Israelis warned civilians, ‘We’re coming in, get out of the area. Hamas did nothing of the kind! They did nothing of the kind.” Behar replied.
If Israel continues to launch airstrikes, Hamas allegedly threatened to begin executing their kidnapped Israeli civilian hostages live on television.
The terrorists have seized at least 100 hostages, some of whom are American citizens, after launching the most severe attack on Israel in nearly half a century at dawn on Saturday.
