Gal Gadot, the Israeli actress best known for portraying “Wonder Woman” on the big screen, issued a statement calling for peace and pro-Palestinians critics melted down in response.
Gadot posted a short statement to her Twitter account on Wednesday after several days of lethal violence in her home country.
My heart breaks,” wrote Gadot.
“My country is at war. I worry for my family, my friends. I worry for my people. This is a vicious cycle that has been going on for far too long. Israel deserves to lives as a free and safe nation, our neighbors deserve the same,” she added.
“I pray for the victims and their families, I pray for this unimaginable hostility to end, I pray for our leaders to find the solution so we could live side by side in peace,” Gadot continued.
“I pray for better days,” she concluded.
‘Gal gadot is an ugly zionist…’
Some supporters of the Palestinian cause replied with vicious vitriol to Gadot’s call for peace.
“Gal gadot is an ugly zionist who can’t act and is beyond pathetic. time and time again she shows yall that she sides with the ethnic cleansing of palestinians and yall act brand new everytime. f*** that woman,” responded one Twitter user.
“I’m glad Gal Gadot said what she said. People should see how Israelis have been laundering the genocide of Palestinians under a disingenuous call for the end of a conflict that has never existed, it’s always been an extermination campaign,” claimed activist Asheya Siddiqi.
“Just another reminder that Gal Gadot is a Zionist and has long supported the ethnic cleansing and violence towards Palestinians,” said another critic.
“Gal Gadot is wrong. Israel is not at ‘war’ with Palestine. Israel is butchering Palestine. Again,” responded UK musician James Kennedy.
“I wish gal gadot a very shut the f*** up,” read another tweet.
Other,s like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), praised Gadot.
