Umnh... No.  Eiffel-Fox exists.  And Object-Tools makes a GUI builder.  
Probably ISE does.  But it's definitely not a part of the language.  For 
that matter, FXRuby exists, etc.  And GUI isn't a part of the Ruby 
language, either.  Eiffel either has or had better support from Glade 
than Ruby.  Some dialects of Eiffel can easily call Java routines.  
Etc.  But that's not making the GUI a part of the language.
