Israeli “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot clapped back at people buying into Hamas’ “propaganda” by justifying the violent attacks in her country, while Sarah Silverman turned on her Dem Socialist group for posting their pro-Palestine stance.
“If you have less empathy towards victims because of how you feel about their government, propaganda is working on you,” the former member of the Israel Defense Force penned in a Tuesday Instagram Story.
“The goal of propaganda is to dehumanize. It works to dehumanize Israelis and it works to dehumanize Gazans.”
As a prime example, a “Free Palestine” rally was held in Dearborn, Michigan on Tuesday, which featured speakers that included elected officials and activists.

Sam Riddle, the Political Director of the Michigan chapter off Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, condemned President Joe Biden for his support of Israel.
“Joe Biden is providing p*ss-poor leadership, he should be about love and bringing us together, instead of dividing us,” he remarked.
Another defended Black Lives Matter, after the Chicago chapter of the organization posted an image of a paraglider with a Palestinian flag.

Hamas terrorists parachuted into an Israeli music festival with automatic weapons and murdered 260 concertgoers to kick off the shocking attack on Saturday.
“When you go to a Black Lives Matter rally, you see Palestinian flags, when you go to a white supremacy rally, you see Israeli flags,” the pro-Palestinian speaker said at the Michigan rally.
BLM Chicago initially deleted the post, but followed up with what was essentially a non-apology.
“Yesterday we sent out [messages] that we aren’t proud of,” the chapter wrote. “We stand with Palestine & the people who will do what they must to live free.”
“Our hearts are with, the grieving mothers, those rescuing babies from rubble, who are in danger of being wiped out completely,” the statement added.
BLM went full mask-off today.
We always called them a domestic terror group. Glad to see them finally admit it.

BLM Chicago trolled an account that tagged them with an image of the country’s flag, which was captioned with, “I pray for Israel.”
“Us too, God please unharden Israel’s heart & help them to stop bombing children & taking over peoples homes & building fences,” the respond sarcastically. “God please help them see the beauty & peace that can come of ending genocidal behavior.”
Meanwhile, anti-Israel organization Students For Justice in Palestine (SJP), planned a “National day of Resistance” on Thursday in support of Hamas.

They distributed a “toolkit” that called the attacks, which have resulted in the deaths of 1,200 people, with 3,000 wounded, and at least 100 kidnapped, “natural and justified”
The toolkit calls for “dismantling Zionism” by destroying Israel, and considers Israeli civilian “settlers” to be military targets no matter their age.
“I like to think most of us are above propaganda. But this weekend reminded me how widespread it is,” Gadot said about the Hamas terrorist supporters.
Gal Gadot is trending because she has given unbiased humanist takes on the war between Israel and The Hamas (Palestinian).

“Because a lot of people reacted to this violence with justification, not empathy.”
“I guess it’s not surprising, but it’s still heartbreaking,” she noted. “Propaganda is everywhere. It seeps into us over time. It seeks to block our empathy receptors. So when we see violence, we rationalize away our human response.”
Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman went absolutely feral on the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), an organization she belongs to, when they stood behind Hamas after the attacks.
Silverman shared a screenshot of a statement the DSA National Political Committee on Instagram Tuesday.
“DSA is steadfast in expressing our solidarity with Palestine,” it read. “Today’s events are a direct result of Israel’s apartheid regime — a regime that receives billions in funding from the United States. End the violence. End the Occupation. Free Palestine.”
“The DSA of which I was a proud lifetime member, has lost me forever,” she began.
Silverman pointed out that “girls were r*ped over the bodies of their friends,” and claimed that many of them marched in protest of Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and “the occupation.”

She lashed out at the “f***ed up, arrogant, ignorant, piece of s**t group” for their stance, and said she’s “still a a democratic socialist” like Vermont independent Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“I don’t like feeling this way and I don’t like acting this way, but here I am. [demsocialists] F*** YOU,” the comedian concluded. “You are not real democratic socialists and you sure as f*** aren’t liberal.”
