Wonder Woman - the most feminist superhero movie ever - attacked by feminists. Because Gal Gadot is Israeli.


The Wonder Woman trailer released two days ago has already been viewed 14 million times on YouTube and who knows how many more on other sites.



But supposed feminists, pejoratively known as "social justice warriors" or SJWs, are willing to overlook the message being given by a major film studio to create a movie with a strong female superhero - because the actress playing the character is Israeli.

From Heatstreet:

Don’t expect this to get one-tenth as much attention as the supposedly sexist pre-release attacks on the all-female Ghostbusters. But Wonder Woman is under attack from SJWs for being Israeli.
While most of the tweets about the upcoming Wonder Woman movie’s new trailer have been positive, many are quite toxic because the lead, Gal Gadot, is an Israeli “Zionist.”
also im feeling more than slightly disillusioned abt wonder woman now that i realize what a vehement zionist gadot is...
Gadot spent two years of mandatory military service in the Israel Defense Forces, where she excelled so much in boot camp that she became a combat trainer.
ok wtvr just gonna pretend gal gadot wasnt a zionist combat trainer in the idf so i can enjoy wonder woman
The strangest aspect of the anti-Semitic hate is that when scrolling through the tweets, they are not coming from alt-right egg accounts and pre-pubescent anime avatars but from real, identifiable women. Because a strong female character that kicks ass both on the screen and off, apparently isn’t good enough… if she’s Israeli.



we could've had a woc wonder woman......instead we got a white zionist
Gal gadot is a self proclaimed Zionist lmao I'm not wasting my coins and going to see Wonder Woman

This kind of dog whistle anti-Semitism so popular with SJWs probably won’t make a big a splash in the media, as male trolls aren’t the perpetrators. Wonder Woman probably won’t get the Ghostbusters treatment, no matter how obvious the online abuse.
The underlying theme is that hating Israel is more important than feminism. There would be no similar backlash against any actor because of any other political belief or national origin.

The irrational hate towards the actress goes to show two things:

Many so-called feminists aren't feminist.

Many so-called anti-Zionists are really antisemites.




We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
