    LEBANON TO BAN 'WONDER WOMAN' FILM OVER NATIONALITY OF ACTRESS GAL GADOT
    http://www.jpost.com/Not-Just-News/Trending-Now/Lebanon-bans-Wonder-Woman-film-over-nationality-of-actress-Gal-Gadot-494341

    The hit film "Wonder Woman," starring Israeli actress and model Gal Gadot, was released this week to rave reviews around the world.

    However, DC Comics' much-awaited film about the Amazon warrior is not going to grace the silver screens of one Middle Eastern country- Lebanon.

    Israel's northern neighbor allegedly announced on Monday that the film will be banned from view in Lebanese cinemas solely due to the nationality of Wonder Woman's leading lady, Gadot.

    Lebanon's National News Agency reported that Lebanon's Ministry of Economy and Trade announced "the adoption of necessary measures to ban the screening... due to the starring of the Israeli actress Gal Gadot in said movie."

    Gadot is very forthcoming about her Jewish background and upbringing in Israel, and has more than once been asked in interviews to speak about her life in the Jewish state, her experiences of serving in the IDF and raising her two children in the country.

    Nothing extraordinary about it. This (horrible) practice is done by many. Pakistani actors for instance last year were banned from doing films in India because of tensions between India and Pakistan.

    Wonder why they didn't ban recent Star Wars and other films with Jerusalem-born Natalie Portman. Maybe it's like being gay - it's okay with people as long as you aren't obvious about it. icon_neutral.gif

    Duh, since Lebanon has been repeatedly attacked by Israel, Lebanon is justified in banning a Jew carrying a sword.

    Liberals, your hypocrisy knows no bounds.

    Liberals: It was your own FDR who interned Japanese during WW2.

    Liberals: How many Cuban, Syrian and North Korean movies did Obama let into the US?

    Liberals: your Universities have been refusing free speech for Conservative Speakers.

    The knot of hypocrisy is right here:

    mx5guynj saidHow many Cuban, Syrian and North Korean movies did Obama let into the US?

    Why focus on Obama and not Bush?
    You're saying this as if you're against it, but then are ok with Lebanon banning a movie?


    Let's get back to this thread:

    mx5guynj saidsince Lebanon has been repeatedly attacked by Israel, Lebanon is justified in banning a Jew carrying a sword.

    It was Lebanon who attacked Israel in 1948.

    1947-1948: Arabs Reject Compromise And Attack Israel
    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/960691

    In 1949, Israel and Lebanon signed an armistice agreement which (unlike those with Syria and Egypt), specified a permanent political border.

    Israel did not attack Lebanon in 1956, 1967 or 1973 when Arab armies attacked Israel.

    In the mid-to-late 1970s, the border between Israel and Lebanon was known as the "good fence":

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Fence
    The Good Fence (הגדר הטובה) was a term that referred to Israel's mountainous 80-mile northern border with Lebanon[1] during the period following the Lebanese Civil War and the 1978 South Lebanon conflict. At the time, southern Lebanon was controlled by the Maronite Christians and the South Lebanon Army.
    From the 1948 establishment of the State of Israel until 1970, Israel's border with Lebanon was quiet to the point that farmers from the Israeli town of Metula farmed their lands in the Ayoun Valley inside Lebanon. In 1970, after their expulsion from Jordan during Black September, the PLO began taking control over southern Lebanon and breaking the tranquility that resided in the area.

    The beginning of the Good Fence coincides with the beginning of the civil war in Lebanon in 1976 and Israel support of the Maronites in southern Lebanon in their battle with the PLO. From 1977, Israel allowed the Maronites to find employment in Israel and provided assistance in exporting goods through the Israeli port city of Haifa. The main border crossing through which goods and workers crossed was the Fatima Gate crossing near Metula.

    Israel states that, before 2000, approximately one-third of the patients in the ophthalmology department of the Western Galilee Hospital were Lebanese citizens who crossed the border through the Good Fence and received treatment free of charge.[2]

    The Good Fence ceased to exist with Israel's withdrawal from southern Lebanon in 2000.

    Along with the PLO, causing problems not just in southern Lebanon but also staging cross-border attacks on Israel, in the early 1980s the export of the Iranian revolution led to the formation of Hizbullah, with them attacking Israel, not Israel attacking Lebanon, in 2006.

    || part of Hezbollah’s efforts to rehabilitate its image in Lebanon as the cause for the country’s suffering

    || Hezbollah fighter[s] opened fire on an IDF hummer and crossed the border into Israeli territory.

    || According to the broadcast, the entire operation began at 8:40 a.m. on the morning of July 12, 2006, with Hezbollah shelling of Israeli towns and IDF border posts intended as a distraction from the raid.

    || Israel recently marked the 10-year anniversary of the Second Lebanon War, with IDF Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot saying that the conflict had dealt “a severe blow to the Hezbollah organization, reestablished Israeli deterrence,” and helped bring about “a sustained and stable quiet along the Lebanese border that is a boon to civilians on both sides of the border.”

    It's comments like these that make me shake my head constantly:

    1. Universities are perfectly correct in their stance of refusing conservative speakers. Such speakers are are usually stupid, with nothing intelligent to impart.

    2. How many German, Israeli, French, English, Chinese, Japanese films did Obama let into the US? Anyhoo, Obama was too busy making the wind blow, the rain fall and the rivers flow.... he didn't have time for Cuban,Syrian and North Korean films as well. icon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

    3. FDR was also the liberal president that created social programs such as social security that saved you mofos. Such programs at whose teats you and many of your ilk will continue to suck dry... what the fvck is your point...

    Radical Muslims used to murder anyone following a different religion in cold blood once Lebanon became inflected by Islam. Islam simply hates Israelis because they don't want to become murderous psychopaths who only follow their fucked up religion.

    Obviously Lebanon would ban this, and Israel only attacks them because they're likely at war with the Islamic State; you know, the state that cuts peoples heads off. The reason why some of these places haven't been nuked is probably because people suspect that they may in-fact actually be humanoid cockroaches who would probably just survive it anyways.
