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.
