Gal Gadot, the renowned actor born in Israel, has consistently expressed her support for her home country, particularly regarding its ongoing conflict with Hamas in Palestinian territories. Her background includes serving in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), a fact she has never hidden, and she has often spoken about the challenges faced by the Israeli people.
As the Israel-Hamas conflict remains a heated topic worldwide, Gadot’s support for Israel’s retaliatory actions following the events of October 7 has drawn significant attention. This stance has led to a mix of support and criticism, especially on social media platforms like Instagram, where she has a vast following. Her posts reach nearly 110 million followers, and she has used this platform to share Israel’s perspective on the conflict.
Escalating Advocacy Efforts
Rumours suggest that Gadot plans to intensify her advocacy by sharing graphic video footage of the Hamas attack from October 7. While it’s unclear how she will navigate various legal constraints, reports from Outkick.com indicate she intends to screen a 47-minute video provided by the IDF in Hollywood.
The goal seems to be to illustrate the severity of the attack on Israeli citizens and challenge the narrative surrounding Hamas’s actions. However, it’s noted that Gadot’s focus does not include showcasing the impact of Israeli actions on Palestinian civilians.
