The absolute normalising of anti-Palestinian hatred, so that one is not held accountable for it, are key in determining whether one can support the movie or not. Consumers, cinema-goers and sports fans have certainly been critical of celebrities who have expressed egregiously racist views, or engaged in egregious practices, except when these were directed at Palestinians.
Mel Gibson was (rightly so) not given a free card for his anti-Semitic rants, yet actors such as Gadot, or Joe Mantegna, a US citizen who raises funds for the Israeli Army, and Joan Rivers, who regularly went on horrific anti-Palestinian rants, remain blemishless. In contrast, a celebrity (or professor) who defends Palestinian rights is made to pay a heady price, often losing their very livelihood as they do so. It is time to let actors know we will hold them accountable for normalising anti-Palestinian violence, regardless of their nationality” via middle East eye.
I firmly believe we should as individuals boycott this movie if the censor board does not do so. Each drop creates an ocean and even one boycott can create the difference.
