Can't watch "Wonder Woman” in Lebanon? The Guardian states that the government reportedly responded to pressure from the Campaign to Boycott Supporters of Israel-Lebanon to ban what they called “the Israeli Soldier film.”

Apparently, the actress is a Jew who served for two years in the Israeli army. The ban isn't because she is a Jew or because of Jew hate, however.

According to Wiki: "At present, a total of 31 United Nations member states do not recognise the State of Israel: 18 of the 21 UN members in the Arab League: Algeria, Bahrain, Comoros, Djibouti, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, and Yemen; a further 10 members of Organisation of Islamic Cooperation: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Brunei, Chad, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Mali, Niger, and Pakistan."

Thus, forbidding a comic book movie makes perfect sense, when one understands that it is not Jew hate that motivates all this: it is hatred of "Zionism."

[insert Israel rant]



Those who will support (or who will be basically unconcerned about) an action based on the identity of this actress or the identity of other Jews will be, IMHO, those most likely support the stance of the plaintiffs on the second EO on travel (arguing that association with a state from which one may seek to travel is just a ruse for religious animus and thus illegitimate bigotry).

Let's test that proposition.

They would probably ban Smokey and the Bandit, (Sally Fields), the Flying Nun and Bewitched too. Anything with a strong, attractive woman. In many ways, they are almost as bad as T-Rump. At least they only banned a film. He banned an entire religion...
