Wonder Woman is officially pro-IDF.

Israeli actress Gal Gadot – who was recently unveiled as the caped superhero in Zack Snyder’s new DC movie Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice – caused a stir by posting a message of support for the Israel Defence Forces via her official Facebook page, just days before a poster of her in character first debuted.

As the conflict between Israel and Gaza worsened, she uploaded a photograph of herself praying with her daughter Alma.

“I am sending my love and prayers to my fellow Israeli citizens,” she wrote. “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”

The post quickly garnered over 200,000 ‘likes’, and thousands of shares with fellow pro-IDF supporters. It also received more than 15,000 comments, both aggressively opposed to her position and stridently for it.

“Zionist israeli army is the biggest terrorist organisation!,” one follower responded. “Palestinians are facing ethnic cleansing ever since the zionist israelis started snatching land! What would you do if your land home and everything you had is being taken away constantly?

Gal Gadot Military Training

As is required of Israeli citizens, Gadot spent two years in military service for the Israel Defense Forces, eventually earning a position of combat trainer because of her discipline and athletic skill.  Having lived the reality of Israel’s precarious position in the Middle East and been a part of one of the most competent and moral armies in the world, it’s little wonder that Gadot is outspoken in her support for her country and the military.

Will you boycott or watch her new movie?

With the release of the new Wonder Woman trailer, that post has been unearthed by social justice activists, who have now branded the Israeli star a “Zionist,” shorthand for “racist, xenophobic hater of Palestinians.” Below are some of the statements tweeted over the last few days declaring the “Zionist” and “racist” actress unfit for support and expressing hope that her future films fail (h/t HeatStreet, Charlie Nash):

“Sorry to burst your Wonder Woman bubble.
Gal Gadot is a racist.
Gal Gadot is a racist.
Gal Gadot is a racist.
Gal Gadot is a Zionist. #NoThx”

“I want Wonder Woman to succeed so bad but I also don’t support Gal Gadot and her Zionist opinions Help”

“We could’ve had a woc [woman of color] wonder woman, instead we got a white zionist”

“I hope Wonder Woman flops bc gal gadot is a Zionist and they recast her”

“also im feeling more than slightly disillusioned abt wonder woman now that i realize what a vehement zionist gadot is…”

“I like Gal Gadot as wonder woman. She does an alright Job as Diana. BUT. She is a Zionist and we Cant Forget that. she is Super Problematic”

“Can’t really bring myself to like the Wonder Woman trailer since Gal Gadot is an outspoken Zionist who boasted about killing Palestinians”

“I just found out Gal Gadot is a Zionist. Wonder Woman cancelled”

“ok wtvr just gonna pretend gal gadot wasnt a zionist combat trainer in the idf so i can enjoy wonder woman”

“my 6-year-old watching the new wonder woman trailer “gal gadot is an ex-idf zionist who supports the occupation and oppression of the palestinians”

“When you were super pumped for the Wonder Woman movie as its female led but realise Gal Gadot is a Zionist “

“I wish Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman) wasn’t a Zionist who supported the occupation of Palestine thru her IDF work, I would enjoy DC more :/”

“when you love wonder woman but gal gadot is a zionist who was in the israeli army and fought against palestinians”
