Wonder Woman - official movieposter
CAIRO – 18 June 2017: On June 7, The Tunisian court decided to temporarily ban the screening of “Wonder Woman.”
The decision comes after the secular People’s Movement Tunisian Party filed a petition to stop screening the movie, despite the fact that the Tunisian Ministry of Culture allowed the screening initially.
The party took an offensive stance against the showing because Gal Gadot is Israeli. She worked in recent years as a soldier in the Zionist Occupation Army and participated in the recent aggression on the besieged Gaza Strip. She strongly defended and promoted the crimes committed during this aggression. Gadot, served in the Israeli army in the 2006 Lebanese war, during which 1,200 civilians were killed, including many children. In addition, Godot is famous for her anti-Palestinian stances.
“Wonder Woman” has received wide criticism in the Middle East because of its leading lady. After being banned in Lebanon, Jordan also suspended the movie on June 14. ‘’ Cinemas that screen the film before the commission approves it will be closed, as this would be considered a violation of the law,’’ said Mohammad Quteishat, director of Jordan’s Media Commission.
The plot of “Wonder Woman” plot revolves around Princess Diana, who discovers her full powers and turns into Wonder Woman before leaving her home to fight a war. The file was written by Allan Heinberg and directed by Patty Jenkins.
