The View's Sunny Hostin says Hamas is no different from the Proud Boys

"Hamas has been designated as a terror organization just like many other terror organizations have this designation, like the Proud Boys here in the United States."

The View's Sunny Hostin compared Palestinian terror group Hamas to the Proud Boys. These are the same women who demanded illegal immigrants be removed from New York City as it began to interrupt their lifestyles.

The ladies were discussing the situation in Israel, where a war is currently underway and has been ever since Hamas attacked the nation via land, air and sea during Saturday's Sabbath and massacred over 1,300 Israelis.

"No, I just, I look at this from a legal perspective," she began, "and I think we all know that Hamas has been designated as a terror organization just like many other terror organizations have this designation, like the Proud Boys here in the United States." The Proud Boys are not actually designated a terror group by the US government.

Hamas is on the State Department's list of designated foreign terror organizations, and has been since 1997. Hamas won elections in Gaza after Israel withdrew from the area, evacuating some 9,000 citizens as they did so, in 2005. Hamas has reportedly been planning this attack against Israel for two years.

For Hostin, there's no difference between a murderous group of government-sponsored terrorists that killed over 1,300 civilians in an unannounced attack and a group of men who get into fights with protestors at American demonstrations and street actions.

Per the US Director of National Intelligence, Hamas formed in 1987 with the beginning of the first intifada against Israel. It has roots in the Muslim Brotherhood and is widely supported by Palestinians. Their goal is to establish an Islamic Palestinian state and to eradicate Israel. The group has attacked Israel repeatedly, bombing civilians in addition to military targets. Hamas also engages in suicide bombings. After a brief, 6-month agreement with Israel in 2008, the group returned to their violent acts of terrorism. They engage in kidnapping and murder without remorse.

Among the Proud Boys' most violent acts, per Stanford's Center for International Security and Cooperation, were fights at the Metropolitan Republican Club in 2018 that led to 10 arrests after neo-Nazi skinheads showed up. In 2020, the Proud Boys counter-demonstrated against Antifa militants and agitators who were diligently protesting and rioting every night and setting a federal building on fire. A fight involving paintball guns led to an arrest. Leader of the group, Enrique Tarrio, vandalized a BLM banner. Proud Boys were also present at the Capitol riot in DC on January 6, 2021, where one woman was killed by Capitol Police. They have not been designated as a terrorist group in the United States.

Hostin continued her remarks, saying "Um, but I do think that what we need to remember is there is an international human rights body of law, and when you look at that law, part of it is retaliation against innocent civilians collectively is also terror and is also a war crime. And again, those are not my words, those are the words of the law."

Hamas was elected by Palestinians to lead their territory, and prior to the retaliatory bombing campaign undertaken by Israel, Israeli Defense Forces issued warnings and calls for civilians to evacuate the area they intended to target.

Jihadis and terrorists from Hamas have created an intricate network of tunnels and hide-aways in Gaza so that they can protect themselves during a bombardment from Israel. It is this network that Israel is intended to target.

Hostin spoke about the EU president, who last year called Russia's invasion of Ukraine, and its collateral damage to civilian infrastructure, a war crime. Gaza is currently under siege by Israel as they try to isolate and disempower the terrorists. 

"What I'm saying is yes, I think that those around, the other Arab countries, Israel actually bombed the only exit out of Palestine to Egypt," Hostin continued, using a term for a nation that does not now and has never existed. She went on to say that "Egypt is afraid and doesn't want to get involved in this conflict."

"I think many people," Hostin continued, "don't want to get involved in this conflict, but we can't lose our humanity."
