MSNBC Host: Israel’s Attacks on Gaza Have Killed as Many People as a Hundred 9/11s

by Molly Wharton

MSNBC’s Joy Reid claimed earlier this week that Israel has carried out the equivalent of one hundred 9/11 attacks on the people of Gaza. 

She began her segment Monday by playing a clip of the UN Relief and Works Agency’s Chris Gunness as he broke down in tears while talking about Gaza, and then quoted U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s condemnation of Israel’s attack on a Gaza school as a “moral outrage and a criminal act.”

“Those condemnations and expressions of outrage have done absolutely nothing to protect civilians in Gaza,” she said. 

Reid then asserted that the death toll in Gaza is “the population equivalent of one hundred 9/11s.”
