I imagine the object of such an Israeli boycott would be an automatic winner at the various film festivals around the world.

I have this vision : If every woman and girl in Lebanon, Jordan...wear or hold something symbolic of. Wonder Woman(a W on a bracelet or shirt ) under your clothes and feel empowered by this , those governments will be forced to change !
