Hollywood star Gal Gadot, a former IDF soldier and well-known for her role as “Wonder Woman,” decided to host a screening of the atrocities committed on October 7.
At the Museum of Tolerance on November 8, 2023, Gadot organized the 43-minute film “Bearing Witness,” which is a montage of the barbarism that took place on October 7 by terrorists.
On social media, threats were made against the actress, claiming that she was supporting genocide.
About 200 people attended the screening, including Hollywood executives, Israel’s UN ambassador, and an IDF official.
Police were forced to form a skirmish line after pro-Palestinian protestors began attacking people.
So anti-Israel protestors found out Gal Gadot was helping screen the video of 10/7 atrocities at the Museum of Tolerance in LA tonight.

Gadot has been very vocal since the attack.
In several social media posts she’s stood with Israel and mourned those killed in the attacks.
Mayor Karen Bass responded to the riot, stating that the violence is “unacceptable.”
We cannot allow current worldwide tension to devolve into this unacceptable violence in our city.
This is a time of immense pain and distress for thousands of Angelenos. We must stand together. https://t.co/MaxguBI4Wf

Actress Natalie Portman has also issued strong support for Israel.
“My heart is shattered for the people of Israel,” on Instagram, adding, “I am in horror at these barbaric acts and my heart is pounding with love and prayer for the families of all affected.”
Portman has deep ties with Israel. She worked on a prominent book defending the Jewish state and wrote, directed, and starred in a Hebrew-language adaption of iraeli author Amos Oz’s memoir.
She’s even put pressure on the Red Cross.
“Dear International Red Cross, We, the undersigned, express our profound concerns regarding the current atrocities perpetrated by Hamas and other terrorist organizations within Israel. We respectfully urge the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to act in accordance to its mandate to prevent the ongoing breaches of International Humanitarian Law (IHL),” the Hollywood actress wrote.
