Sunday Services

Last week while trolling my television listings, I noticed Wonder Woman was available on my free HBO. I heard good things, so I figured I’d give it a watch. It was actually a really good film. Thus, the inspiration for today’s Sunday Services: Gal Gadot.

Gal Gadot-Varsano (born 30 April 1985) is an Israeli actress and model. She is primarily known for portraying Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe, starting with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), and then the solo film Wonder Woman and the ensemble Justice League (both 2017). She previously starred as Gisele Yashar in three films in The Fast and the Furious film franchise.

Gadot was born and raised in Israel. At age 18 she was crowned Miss Israel 2004. She then served two years in the Israel Defense Forces as a combat instructor. She began studying at IDC Herzliya college before pursuing modeling and acting.

Unlike the rest of the DC Universe (Man of Steel, Batman v Superman), Wonder Woman was solid – although the ending got a little too cartoony for me tastes. Gadot’s exquisite hotness salvaged it for me. There are more photos below the fold.

Middle East Stays In The Middle Ages

Several Middle Eastern countries have taken the drsatic step of banning the new Wonder Woman film. The ban comes not because of the skimpy outfit, or the film’s message, but because the star, Gal Gadot, is an Israeli.

Hollywood movie Wonder Woman has been banned in Tunisia due to the leading actress’ Israeli heritage.

The film was pulled before the first screenings on June 8 after a lawsuit called Gail Gadot a ‘champion Zionist.’ Tunisia joins Lebanon and Algeria in banning the film due to Gadot’s Israeli heritage and past links to the country’s military.

Following the decision, screenings of the film were removed from cinema websites.

Personally, I hope every Middle Eastern country bans the film. I’m a big proponent of letting ignorant assholes expose themselves to the world.
