Yesterday, actress Gal Gadot, who holds dual Israeli and American citizenship, organized a screening at the highly-guarded Museum of Tolerance. Unfortunately, a clash erupted between demonstrators outside the museum over a disturbing 47-minute video compiled from raw footage of a deadly attack on October 7th.
The footage was filmed by a Hamas terrorist and showcases the horrifying acts of murder, kidnapping, and dead bodies. In Los Angeles, reporter Christina Coleman covers the story, highlighting that the private screening titled “Bearing Witness to the October 7th Massacre” provoked violence outside the Museum of Tolerance. Witnesses captured video of the incident, mentioning that some supporters of Israel were pepper-sprayed during the altercation between pro-Israel and pro-Palestine demonstrators. Inside the museum, more than 150 people, including Hollywood executives, gathered to watch the Hamas attack video.
The footage was compiled by the Israel Defense Forces to combat the spread of misinformation about the attacks. LA mayor Karen Bass responded to the fight, condemning the violence and emphasizing the need for unity during this painful time for the people of Los Angeles. Gal Gadot, known for her role in Wonder Woman, organized the screening and has faced criticism from pro-Palestine supporters for her support of Israel.
However, she remains steadfast and recently shared a video of Broadway performers singing.
