Recently, I told you how the typical anti-Israel thugs were demanding that Madonna cancel her planned Israeli trip and concert. Although I’ve been a frequent Madonna critic, I lauded her for ignoring them.
Madonna Wears Israeli Flag (w/ Daughter Lourdes)
Well, it’s now official. Ignoring the Jew-haters and self-hating Jews, Madonna performed her concert in Tel Aviv, yesterday. And– a bonus–she raised the Israeli flag. That’s brave for her, and I give her credit and props for that. And now she’s under attack from every segment of the Muslim and extremist world, not to mention nutty YouTube commenters (though that could be redundant).
Here’s the video (with her daughter Lourdes accompanying her onstage):
Some readers complained to me, upset that Madonna met with Israeli opposition leader Tzipi Livni and not just Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. But to me, that’s not a big deal. We should be happy that she didn’t pull an Al Sharpton or Sharon Stone and go visit Fatah leader and Palestinian Authority Prez Mahmoud Abbas a/k/a Abu Mazen. And frankly, I think her actions in Israel showed courage. Yasher Kochech [May Your Strength Be Firm–a Hebrew congratulation], Madonna!
Israeli reader Miranda Rose Smith had a great idea: thank Madonna. Miranda sends this address for Madonna’s company, where she is receiving mail:
c/o Maverick Records LLC
9348 Civic Center Drive
Beverly Hills, California
Yes, you gotta use snail-mail, but it also helps keep your Mailman in business.
I agree with Miranda’s idea and will send my own letter. I hope you’ll join me.
