Following the deadly Hamas attacks against Israel last week, MSNBC host and analyst Ayman Mohyeldin blamed the bloodshed on everyone but the terrorists themselves.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s “Velshi,” the MSNBC host gave a leftist spin on the horrific Hamas attacks, which have so far claimed 600 Israeli lives with thousands more wounded.
“What we’re seeing today are very deadly consequences of failed policies,” Mohyeldin said.
“Failure on the American administration’s part to change course, to take a different course of action with how we deal with the Palestinians and the Israelis.”
“Failure on Israel’s part. Failure on the region’s part to not be able to say, this is an issue that matters.”
“It would be very naive to just simply say every Palestinian agrees with what Hamas is doing,” he added.

“But Hamas is saying, well, if nobody is able to defend what is happening for Palestinians in the West Bank or east Jerusalem with the home demolitions, the arrests, the children being killed, the desecration of holy sites.”
“If they’re unable to do that then we only have the ability to do it with military might and crude weapons and military.”
“And that is why I go back to that point that the Israeli prime minister was making which is, I’m going on to reach peace with the Arab world then I will come back and make peace with the Palestinians.”
“Here is ultimately the end result of that, which is, you have ignored the Palestinians. I’m not saying he’s ignored it in the sense of ‘Oh we’re not dealing with Palestinians, or we’re not prepared to deal with them.'”
“It’s simply saying that I’m going to put the priority of our resources on peace with Saudi Arabia, with the United Arab Emirates, and others.”
Mohyeldin is diverting blame away from Hamas leaders and their foot soldiers, blaming Israel for their policies.
Tehran’s foreign ministry spokesman, Nasser Kanani, recently praised the attack.
“What took place today is in line with the continuation of victories for the anti-Zionist resistance in different fields, including Syria, Lebanon and occupied lands,” Kanani said, according to Politico.
Meanwhile, Trump referenced Iran’s likely involvement for the attacks and said Israel has every right to defend itself.
“These Hamas attacks are a disgrace and Israel has every right to defend itself with overwhelming force,” Trump wrote in a press release.
“Sadly, American taxpayer dollars helped fund these attacks, which many reports are saying came from the Biden Administration,” the statement continued.
“We brought so much peace to the Middle East through the Abraham Accords, only to see Biden whittle it away at a far more rapid pace than anyone thought possible.”
Over 600 Israeli civilians and military personnel have lost their lives, while over 100 civilians, including many children and elderly, have been kidnapped and transported to the Gaza Strip.
“We are at war, not an operation,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement.
“Hamas has launched a murderous surprise attack against the State of Israel and its citizens. I ordered first of all to cleanse the settlements of the terrorists who had infiltrated and ordered a large-scale mobilization of reserves.”
