"Qatar has joined Lebanon and Tunisia to become the latest state to ban the screening of the hit movie Wonder Woman starring Israeli actress Gal Gadot," Simon Kent reports at Breitbart.
"As Breitbart Jerusalem reported," Kent continues, "Gadot, who served in the IDF during the 2006 Lebanon war, has come under fire for her open support of Israel, in particular for a tweet during 2014's conflict with Gaza in which she prayed for the safety of Israel's citizens."
According to Kent, Doha News is now reporting that the "presence of the Israeli star in the blockbuster is enough for authorities in Qatar to ban the screening. Wonder Woman was initially scheduled to premiere in Doha last Thursday across local theater chains VOX Cinemas Qatar and Novo Cinemas."
"I am sending my love and prayers to my fellow Israeli citizens," the actress wrote on her Facebook page in 2014. "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!"
