The Best Part About Gal Gadot’s Appearance In Rolling Stone

As has been reported everywhere, Israel’s Gal Gadot has made the cover of the September edition of Rolling Stone, as well as the feature article.

There is a whole lot to love about this, including the article’s title and reference straight away to her Israeli army days

Her response to the Arab country bans on the movie

Or, at least possible, if you’re her. Take the way she brushes off the naysayers who took issue with Wonder Woman, a national treasure (lauded by the Smithsonian as one of the “101 Objects That Made America”), being portrayed by an Israeli: “Oh, my God, seriously, you guys?” (The movie was banned in several Arab countries for the same reason.)

And mention of her family history

Nor was it immaterial that Wonder Woman – who, Gadot says, “stands for love and hope and acceptance and fighting evil” – debuted in 1941, the year America entered World War II. While Gadot’s father is a sixth-generation Israeli, her mother’s mother escaped Europe just before the war. Her mother’s father, who was 13 when the Nazis came to his native Czechoslovakia, was not so lucky. His father died in the army. The rest of his family was sent to Auschwitz, where his mother and brother died in the gas chambers. After the war, he made his way to Israel alone. “His entire family was murdered – it’s unthinkable,” says Gadot. “He affected me a lot. After all the horrors he’d seen, he was like this damaged bird, but he was always hopeful and positive and full of love. If I was raised in a place where these values were not so strong, things would be different. But it was very easy for me to relate to everything that Wonder Woman stands for.”

But for me, the best part has to be the cover, where Roger Waters also appears – in smaller letters – given this interview appears in the same issue.

The BDS-hole-in-Chief relegated to second billing by the symbol of one of the most (if not the most) successful Israeli cultural icons in the world today. You can just imagine his face when he realizes it.

Now that’s Justice!
