Can We Reschedule the War? Madonna’s Coming

Israel’s far-right government’s bellicosity seems to sit well with most of the voting public come election time. But it can also be a real pain when you’ve got something other than war you want to do.

So Israeli fans of Madonna, who is starting her world tour in Tel Aviv in late May, have started a Facebook petition asking Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to postpone his planned attack of Iran until after May 29, so as not to spoil the concert.

So far there has been no official response from the Israeli government on the matter, but with increased tension brewing between far-right secularists in the coalition and far-right religious blocs, it seems the government can ill-afford to alienate a potentially significant Madonna-bloc by starting a concert-cancelling war of aggression.

  1. I don't know if Madonna has actually converted to Judaism, but she is an avid student of the Kabbala. She can just stay in Isra-hell and stop polluting our air.

  2. so two options:
    1)either combat and possibly overcome the threat of nuclear Iran (which has a president that constantly threatens to wipe Israel off the map)
    2)have a Madonna concert.

    Well, at least she will promote world peace. . . . PII-SHAW!!!! AS IF that could cool radical islamic hatred for Israel.

    1. Uhmm, just FYI, there is no threat of a nuclear Iran. The president has never said he would wipe Israel off the map. And finally, the hatred of Israel has little or nothing to do with Islam, but rather with the endless aggression and war crimes commited against Palestinians.

  3. Iran a threat?! Since the 1979 Iranian revolution and the downfall of the US Puppet Ruler the Shah, Iran has been an Islamic state. In that interval of time, 1979 to the present, Iran has not invaded anyone. Not once. People of all religions live in peace in Iran, even Jews, who find life so comfortable in Iran they refused an offer by the government of Israel to emigrate!

    In the same period of time, Israel, a self-declared Jewish state, attacked Iraq in 1981, bombing the power station at Osirik, claiming it was a clandestine weapons factory. Subsequent examination of the ruins following the 2003 invasion proved Israel had lied. In 1982, Israel invaded Lebanon. This led to the Massacres at Sabra and Shatilla. In February 2003 Israel staged incursions into Gaza and Nablus. In September 2007 Israel bombed Syria, again insisting they were destroying a clandestine weapons laboratory. Again there was no evidence to support Israel's claims. In 2006, Israel attacked Lebanon, killing 1200, mostly civilians, several UN observers, and littering the landscape with land mines on their way out. In February 2008 Israel again raided Gaza, killing over 100. HAMAS agreed to a cease fire and kept it for 6 months until November 4, when Israel again attacked without warning, killing 6 HAMAS members, and launching operation CAST LEAD. 1300 Gazans, mostly civilians, were killed. Israel lost 13 soldiers. Violations of international law included the use of White Phosphorus incendiary bombs against civilians and non-military targets. The United Nations investigated, but Israel refused to cooperate. In May 2010, Israel attacked an international aid flotilla bringing food and medical supplies to Gaza in international waters. 9 people were murdered including an American from New York.

  4. Why can't we just send a boatload of low-rent whores to Netanyahu so he'll have other things on his mind than starting wars for the US to fight?

    Oops- I forgot they're all working in Congress already.

  5. @ me thinking: Israel is a treat to all countries in middle east and world peace. Israel is responsible for inciting hate against Muslims worldwide in order to keep on with it’s agenda of ethnic cleansing of Palestine. Iran is only it’s latest victim.

  6. "Existential threat" indeed. Now if only Tel Aviv can convince the Israeli on the street of that.
