Wonder Woman vs. Bibi


The Israeli election campaign entered the realm of celebrity on Sunday, with a public spat between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot.

It began when Israeli model Rotem Sela wrote on Instagram, "When the hell will someone in this government tell the public that Israel is a country of all its citizens?"

Netanyahu replied that Israel "is the national state, not of all its citizens, but only of the Jewish people."

Gadot responded on Instagram by quoting the Bible: "Love thy neighbor as thyself."

"It is not a matter of right or left, Jewish or Arab, religious or secular," she added. "It's a matter of dialogue for peace, equality and tolerance for one another. It is our responsibility to plant hope and light for a better future for our children. Rotem, you are an inspiration for us all."
