GAL GADOT CALL FOR MIDDLE EAST PEACE CREATES ONLINE FIRESTORM

Gal Gadot, a famous Israeli actress and model, used Twitter to call for peace in the Middle East. Her plan backfired because it created an online firestorm of hatred. This was not surprising because tensions are very high between Israel and the Hamas group of Pakistan.

Gadot is a former Israel Defense Forces fighter. She did not earn much respect from her social media post because people thought it was a propaganda tool for her country’s military.

Gal Gadot Takes to Twitter

Gadot detailed how her heart is breaking over the situation in her home country and the Middle East as a whole. The current tension in the portion of the world is ramping up because of the disputes over a section of Jerusalem.

This disagreement over the portion of Jerusalem has led to a rocket fight between Israel and Hamas, an Islamic resistance movement based in Pakistan.

On Wednesday, Gal Gadot took to Twitter and wrote;

“This is a vicious cycle that has been going on for far too long. Israel deserves to live as a free and safe nation, Our neighbors deserve the same. I pray for the victims and their families, pray for this unimaginable hostility to end. I pray for our leaders to find the solution so we can live side by side in peace.”

This fight has also caused issues on Capitol Hill in Washington. Both sides of the political spectrum have criticized President Biden for not supporting Israel. Namely, Israel is the only American ally in the Middle East that practices democracy.

Examples of Hate and Support for Gadot on Twitter

Celebrities are always criticized on social media by some people when they publicly make a statement. However, Gal Gadot did not generate much support in her tweet on Wednesday. People attacked “Wonder Woman” for a variety of different reasons.

The first reason she was trampled on social media was because of her military history. She served from 2005 to 2007; but she never publicly preached peace during this time or early in her acting career.

It’s believed that she supported mass genocide and ethnic cleansing at one time and publicly displayed this on her social media. The posts were deleted in the past, but countless people attacked her for this on Twitter.

The Twitter replies were so disturbing for Gadot that she had to disable all comments.

According to Fox News, @thetaeprint led the hostility charge online.

The account responded;

“Reminder Gal Gadot served in the IDF for two years where she not only witnessed the ethnic cleansing of Palestine firsthand but also actively supported it. How can you advocate to stop the vicious cycle of terror when you are standing on the frontlines enabling it #FreePalestine.”

Some people came to the defense of the former Israeli military member. One response that stood out on the platform was,

“It’s Twitter, of course, not real life. But the quote-tweets to @GalGadot’s dignified & humane wish for peace exemplify the antisemitism & misogyny that social media has brought to the public square.”

Gal Gadot’s tweet did not help the situation. There are still countless issues occurring in the region that are ongoing.
