Gabbard has been accused of having a history of anti-Israel leanings. Breaking Israel News exposed that the Hawaii rep voted to fund efforts in Hamas controlled Gaza in 2018.
In 2017, Gabbard met with Syrian president Bashar Assad and voiced support for a two-state ‘solution’. Regarding Iran, Gabbard tweeted: “Trump says he doesn’t want war with Iran, but that’s exactly what he wants, because that’s exactly what Saudi Arabia, Netanyahu, al-Qaeda, Bolton, Haley, and other neocons and neolibs want….That’s what he put first — not America.”

Gabbard was also a cosponsor of Rep. Ilan Omar’s bill to support the right to boycott Israel.
When she was asked to condemn anti-Semitic statements of Rep. Ilhan Omar, Gabbard deflected the request saying: “There are people who have expressed their offense at these statements. I think that what Congresswoman Omar was trying to get at was a deeper issue related to our foreign policy, and I think there’s an important discussion that we have to be able to have openly, even though we may end up disagreeing at the end of it, but we’ve got to be able to have that openness to have the conversation.”
