The “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot, who is originally from Israel, is lashing out at the public for staying silent about the women who are currently being raped and kidnapped by Hamas.

Gadot Sounds Off

“The world has failed the women of October 7th. We claim we stand against rape, violence against women,” Gadot wrote on Instagram. “We will not let women be victimized and then silenced. We say we believe women, stand with women, speak out for women.”

“On October 7th, the world witnessed Hamas carrying out its violent plans in real-time. Within hours of the October 7th attack, the first blood-chilling video emerged of Shani Louk being paraded naked and defiled by her proud assailants,” she continued. “Yet two months later women are still hostage to these rapists and the world has failed to call this situation what it is: an urgent emergency that demands a decisive response.”

“This is our moment as women and allies of women to act,” Gadot concluded. “I am beseeching all those who have done so much for women’s rights globally — from the U.N., to the human rights community to please join in the demand that Hamas release every single woman hostage immediately not after the next round of international mediation, not after another day. These women cannot survive another moment of this horror.”

Gadot’s Previous Comments

Daily Mail reported that Gadot took to her Instagram back in October to sound off about the situation in her home country.

“Whoever can and wiling to donate, these people’s lives changed forever yesterday,” she stated. “They’ve lost so much and need help. Only if you can. If you have less empathy towards victims because of how you feel about their government, propaganda is working on you.”

“The goal of propaganda is to dehumanize. It works to dehumanize Israelis and works to dehumanize Gazans,” Gadot continued. “I like to think most of us are above propaganda. But this weekend reminded me how widespread it is. Because a lot of people reacted to this violence with justification, not empathy. I guess it’s not surprising but it’s still heartbreaking.”

“Propaganda is everywhere. It seeps into us over time. It seeks to block our empathy receptors. So when we see violence, we rationalize away our human response,” she concluded. “Killing innocent Palestinians is horrific. Killing innocent Israelis is horrific. If you don’t feel the same I think you should ask yourself why that is.”

Gadot’s Military Service

Reuters reported that Gadot served in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) for two years, a stint which included participation in the 2006 Israel-Lebanon war. This led to Lebanon banning the Wonder Woman movie starring Gadot when it was released in 2017.

Last month, Gadot denied rumors that she had rejoined the IDF in the wake of the Israel-Hamas conflict.

 “She has not joined the Army in 2023,” her representative said.

This comes at a time in which much of Hollywood is staying silent about what is happening between Israel and Hamas. What do you think of Gadot’s remarks? Let us know in the comments section.
