They really don't like Jews, do they?

At least those who stand up for themselves.
Don’t expect this to get one-tenth as much attention as the supposedly sexist pre-release attacks on the all-female Ghostbusters. But Wonder Woman is under attack from SJWs — for being Israeli.
While most of the tweets about the upcoming Wonder Woman movie’s new trailer have been positive, many are quite toxic because the lead, Gal Gadot, is an Israeli “Zionist.”
Bigoted fools.

Added: Yes, I do realize that there's a difference between 'Zionist' and 'Jew' for people who're being honest.  I've seen too much crap(mostly from leftists) where they use that as a means of deniability("Oh, I don't hate all Jews, just those!").  So I don't trust them to mean it.

You do understand that "Jewish" is a RELIGIOUS belief, and "Zionism" is a POLITICAL belief, right?
And every tweet attacks her for being a ZIONIST, not for being a Jew.
And the head of "HeatStreet", the website link you posted, is a devout Zionist, married to Peter Mensch, a devout Zionist Jew who has spent his lifetime in pro-Israel activities.
But, again: ALL the tweets attacked Gal for being a ZIONIST, not for being a JEW.
Please learn the difference.
Not all Jews are Zionists, and not all Zionists are Jews.

I do understand the difference. I've also heard and read too many people using 'Zionist' as their way to attack Jews in general while giving themselves some deniability: "Oh no, I'm not against all Jews, only THOSE people."

In other words, "Zionist" usually means "a Jew who is ready and willing to defend him or herself".
