‘Wonder Woman’ Gadot reprimands Israel’s PM for anti-Arab policies


News Desk |

Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot has reproached Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his misconduct with Arab populating, whom she says are Israel’s neighbors.

Gal Gadot spoke in favor of the fellow Israeli actress who challenged Benjamin Netanyahu’s party treatment of the Arab population. Israeli Prime Minister and his party have been accused of terrorizing Israel’s Arab population ahead of April 9th elections to woo the right-wing voters.

“Love your neighbor as yourself,” wrote Gal Gadot on her Instagram account on Sunday. She wrote in defense of the Israeli model and television actress Rotem Sela who received online backlash from people and a personal reprimand from Netanyahu.

Israel’s cabinet had passed the law last year that declared Israel to be the nation-state of Jews. The law has posed severe consequences for the 17.5% Arab population of Israel.

“This isn´t a matter of right or left. Jew or Arab. Secular or religious,” the “Wonder Woman” star posted. “It´s a matter of dialogue, of dialogue for peace and security and of our tolerance of one towards the other.”

Earlier, Rotem Sela had objected to Israel’s Culture Minister Miri Regev who was heard warning the Israeli’s not to vote for their opponents in the upcoming elections since they will form an alliance with the Israel Arab parties in parliament if elected.

“When will someone in this government convey to the public that Israel is a state of all its citizens and that all people were created equal?” Sela wrote. “Even the Arabs believe it or not are human beings, and the Druze and the gays, by the way, and the lesbians and shock leftists.”

Netanyahu then gave a bigoted response to Rotem Sela. He stated, “Dear Rotem, Israel is not a state of all its citizens,” he wrote. “According to the basic nationality law we passed, Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people and only it.”

Israel’s cabinet had passed the law last year that declared Israel to be the nation-state of Jews. The law has posed severe consequences for the 17.5% Arab population of Israel.
