Gadot Hosting Screening Of Hamas Atrocities
Daily Mail reported that a 47-minute video provided by the Israeli Defence forces, which Gadot herself served in from 2004-2006, will be played for a select audience of celebrities and influencers in both Los Angeles and New York this week. This initiative was spearheaded by the Oscar-winning director Guy Nattiv, who confirmed that Gadot, 38, “helped make this possible” along with her husband Yaron Varsano.
The chilling video shows the horrifying atrocities that Hamas terrorists inflicted on Israeli communities on the Gaza border in an attack that resulted in the killing of 1,400 people and the kidnapping of 240 hostages on October 7.
“As a filmmaker, I swore that these images of October 7 would not be forgotten, and the world would see them. Because now the denial begins – it is a fake, it is not a fake (…) We cannot pass by in silence,” Nattiv said, comparing the terror attacks to the Holocaust.

The video will be screened to an audience of 120 people in Los Angeles and New York under the title “Bearing Witness to the October 7th Massacre.” One of the screenings will reportedly take place by invite only at the Museum of Tolerance on Wednesday, according to The Wrap.
It will also show the massacre that took place at the Nova music festival, and some of the footage is so disturbing that many have left previous screenings mid-video, unable to take watching any more of it.
Gadot Sounds Off On Israel
Though Gadot, who is a former Miss Israel, has yet to comment publicly on the screening herself, she’s been vocal about defending Israel in the wake of the attack.
“I stand with Israel you should too,” she said after the attack. “The world cannot sit on the fence when these horrific acts of terror are happening.”

The Mail reported that Gadot later doubled down on this on her Instagram Story.
“Propaganda is everywhere. It seeps into us over time. It seeks to block our empathy receptors. So when we see violence, we rationalize away our human response,” she concluded. “Killing innocent Palestinians is horrific. Killing innocent Israelis is horrific. If you don’t feel the same I think you should ask yourself why that is.”
