The new “Wonder Woman” Gal Gadot can kick the butt of evil in real life too, and it’s driving leftists mad.
The star of the blockbuster film, which most leftists originally praised for its portrayal of strong women, now has many angry because of Gadot’s time serving in the Israeli military destroying terrorists.
“It was demanding because you give up your freedom for two years, but there is something special in giving back to your community,” Gadot told Fashion Magazine of her time in the IDF after she was named the news Wonder Woman in 2015. “One day I hope we have peace in the Middle East and everyone is able to live together in harmony. I wish none of the countries in the world will ever need an army, but this is how it goes in Israel. It’s mandatory and I did my part. But the army wasn’t that difficult for me. The military gave me good training for Hollywood.”

Gadot doesn’t hate men and doesn’t see women as victims of the rampant misogyny the majority of Hollywood insists still exists.
“I truly believe we are more empowered. Men are more women-friendly in this generation,” the former Miss Universe Israel said. “We’re also stronger, sophisticated and can achieve what we want. That’s what I would like my daughter to know as she grows up.”
But the fact that Gadot is an Israeli has caused the nation of Lebanon to ban the movie from its theaters.
A group called the Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel-Lebanon justified the ban by citing an ongoing war between the two states, according to Vanity Fair.

“Lebanon is officially at war with Israel and has a decades-old law that boycotts Israeli products and bars Lebanese citizens from traveling to Israel or having contacts with Israelis,” the group said.
And after Gadot served in the 2006 Israel–Hezbollah War she posed with other IDF Women for a Maxim magazine spread titled “The Chosen Ones: Israeli Defense Forces.”
And her time in the IDF has caused anger among social justice warriors who believe Israel is a terrorist state that doesn’t have a right to exist.
The leftists are particularly angered by a photo Gadot shared in Facebook in 2014 that showed her praying with her daughter for Israeli forces to defeat the Hamas terrorists.

That was enough to have many who are anti-Israel to call for a boycott of the movie in the United States and abroad.
You: omg Wonder Woman looks so good I want to watch it
Me, an intellectual: don’t support the Zionist regime, boycott Wonder Woman

And how is that boycott working?
It’s opening weekend was a record-breaker for a female director, grabbing $103.1 million at the box office, according to Deadline.com.
