Tuesday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said the United States had lost “credibility” after moving the American embassy to Jerusalem.
Goldberg said, “I am concerned, you know, because I believe that the Jews and Palestinians can and should be living together on that land. And I don’t think that any one side should have done this. I don’t think we should have done this at all. And now we’ve lost our —I feel, lost a bit of credibility because the Palestinians also feel that that’s their land, too. They’ve — you know, they’ve lived their life there. That’s their blood also. And so there has to be a way. And the problem for me is, you know, what is the message? We’re saying we don’t care what you think, Palestinians. And I don’t think that’s the message that any of the the former presidents wanted to send. I think they felt that there could be a way to do it.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin said, “If you want true peace in the Middle East, which is what Jared Kushner was supposed to be working towards, you cannot have peace, and a peace process without Palestinian involvement. You cannot have it. So if you choose a side and say this is what I’m going to do, you’re effectively saying you’re not going to work for peace,”
Joy Behar added, “Maybe they don’t really want it.”
