Of all the Muslim dictatorships to ban Wonder Woman screenings, this one surely tops them all

If there's anyplace in the Muslim world that's showing their true colors over Gal Gadot's nationality, it has to be the PLO's censors in Ramallah, where WW screenings have been banned along with Lebanon and Tunisia:
A movie theater in the Palestinian city of Ramallah has reportedly banned screenings of the new "Wonder Woman" film because it's leading actress, Gal Gadot, is Israeli.

According to the local al-Hadath newspaper, Palestine Towers Cinema has made the decision not to screen the Hollywood blockbuster due to “political reasons related to the Israeli occupation and the Israeli actress starring in the film.”

The boycott follows similar measures taken by both Lebanon and Tunisia due to Gadot's starring role.
Coming from the PLO, it's definitely no shock, since Gadot was surely most vocal against them, for good reason.
The head of Israel's Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), the defense ministry body which oversees civilian affairs in the Palestinian territories, slammed the measure as showing "weakness and fear."

“Apparently Palestine Towers Cinema in Ramallah fears that the audience will enjoy the excellent film ‘Wonder Woman,’ and cannot separate politics from an American film,” Major General Yoav (Poly) Mordechai wrote in a Facebook post Sunday.
It's not just the theater house itself. I have no doubt some of the orders to ban the film came from the dark offices of the PLO themselves, since they have their own Goebbels propaganda ministers working behind the scenes. But their steps are most definitely acts of weakness and fear, to say nothing of antisemitism.
