They’re probably referring to the post she made on her official FB page in support of the IDF a couple of days ago. You’ll have to make your own judgment call whether she’s just trying to support IDF troops or condoning Israel’s actions in Gaza.
Yup, it was pointed out to me after the fact. Not a good look. I can’t really judge an Israeli for supporting the IDF, however. If that was indeed her intent, then okay. But hoooo man that post read like shit stirring. :\ Just stop. Don’t. Ugh.
sorry she actually did say something pretty shitty.
yeah someone pointed it out to me after I’d published that ask. Sigh. Such obvious shit stirring. Especially on a weekend when she knew her name would be in the papers.
Anonymous said: I would NEVER criticize someone just for being from Israel. She actively supports Israel's current actions. From her Facebook page two days ago: “I am sending my love and prayers to my fellow Israeli citizens. Especially to all the boys and girls who are risking their lives protecting my country against the horrific acts conducted by Hamas, who are hiding like cowards behind women and children…We shall overcome!!! Shabbat Shalom! #weareright #freegazafromhamas #stopterror #coexistance #loveidf”
*bangs head against wall*
That’s pretty bad. And at the time I made the comment to you, I had no idea of this fact. I did a cursory google and couldn’t find anything, so I figured it was good. Apologies.
E: I maintain that you should read this post because it is super important and you should read it.
Anonymous said: Gal Gadot, the actress playing Wonder Woman, supports genocide. I wanted to be enthusiastic about this movie but I just can't.
Do you mean supports genocide because she’s Israeli and as such has served in the Israeli army as all people who are citizens of that country have? Because yeah, dude. No. If you’re mad about what is going on in Israel, that’s really okay, I’m mad about it too, it’s bullshit, but attacking people and or deciding not to like someone because of where they’re from is like considering any white person who is born and raised in the American South a racist just because that’s a stereotype.
Protip: Read this. Think before you speak.
Unless Gal Gadot has come out and made statements in support of the current Israeli government’s actions in Gaza and has stated publicly that she supports the removal of all Palestinians from Gaza/The West Bank your argument is bullshit. Enjoy the movie. Don’t hate a person based on where they’re from.
E: as a few ppl have pointed out to me she did say some super shitty things and yeah. Not cool. Still, don’t go around hating on jews/israelis just because they happen to be the same nationality/religion as Israel’s far right wing government. :\
