Multiple fights erupted outside the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles during a screening of the film “Bearing Witness,” depicting the October 7, 2023, surprise attack by Hamas on Southern Israel. Organized by Gal Gadot, the screening featured “extremely graphic and violent” footage, including some shot by Hamas members. Videos circulating online captured clashes outside the venue.
Gal Gadot, known for her role as ‘Wonder Woman,’ did not attend the screening in person but faced backlash on social media for allegedly supporting genocide. The event, attended by around 200 people, including Israeli officials and Hollywood executives, had heavy security.
While Israeli authorities report over 1,400 casualties and 240 hostages in Gaza since the war’s onset a month ago, the Hamas-run health ministry claims a death toll exceeding 10,000, mostly civilians. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed concern, stating Gaza is becoming a “graveyard for children.” Israel vows to destroy Hamas, citing unprecedented attacks on civilians.
Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass urged unity, emphasizing the need to prevent city violence amid global tension. Gal Gadot, a former Israeli Defense Forces member, has yet to comment on the Palestinian death toll or Gaza’s plight, drawing criticism from various quarters.
