Three Cheers: Never Thought I’d Applaud Madonna

By Debbie Schlussel

As longtime readers know, I’m no fan of Madonna.  When she was tops in pop music in America, she tried to corrupt kids with her slutty single mother lifestyle, dominatrix videos, and nudie book.  And her adherence to this fake Kabbalah stuff is ridiculous (though apparently it’s served its purpose–see below).  Ditto for the absurd “Co-Exist With Islam” crap she’s pimped at her European concerts (a reason I call Europe, “Madonnastan”).

But, for once, she’s–so far–doing the right thing, according to the always excellent Tom Gross Media Dispatch:

More than 100 Jews and Arabs are calling on pop star Madonna to call off her Tel Aviv concerts, scheduled for September 1 and 2. They have formed an organization called Israeli Support for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel, and on Sunday sent a letter to Madonna asking her not to perform at the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds.

Tel Aviv University Prof. Rachel Giora [DS:  who looks like a female Ronald McDonald grown old], a spokesperson for the group, wrote in the letter to Madonna: “A performance here would imply support for the illegal and inhumane policies [of Israel], described by many as war crimes and crimes against humanity.”

The organization also sent a similar letter to Leonard Cohen, asking him to boycott Israel. However, Cohen has confirmed his appearance at Ramat Gan Stadium (near Tel Aviv) on September 24. (Leonard Cohen’s planned concert in Ramallah in the West Bank has been cancelled by Fatah because he refused to cancel his Israeli appearance.)

Madonna has ignored the letter. Although Madonna is not Jewish, she is known for her strong sympathy with Israel, and her appreciation of Kabbala. This month, Madonna is taking her children to Poland, where they will visit Auschwitz. She said she wanted her children to understand the horrors of the Holocaust.

& Carrot Top’s Long Lost Sister

I admire her courage on this one.  Let’s hope she sticks to it, unlike in the past, when she canceled concerts in Israel to appease Islamic terrorists.

Thanks to my friend, the indefatigable Ruth S. King, for the tip.

Giora is a Chomsky disciple

Time will tell what Madonna does, but I’m with you Debbie, hope she sticks to her guns.

I never thought I’d be able to cite a positive about Madonna, but I have to agree that she is doing something positive here. Amazing how these palestinian agitators who are in league with Hamas and Hezbolla think they can just twist an arm of a Madonna and whomever and they win–I think we need to boycott all those who have close ties with the agitators/sympthisizers. I am glad you let us know who many of these guilty enablers are.

Another self-hating Jew with a bad hair color! Ugh! I hope this dopey professor is kicked out of Israel.

Will she be adopting an impoverished Jewish orphan this trip? Or do they have to be black?

i hope she ignores her critics

Debbie, I read her brother’s unauthorized biography of M., and she is just like I imagined. You should read it, too, it’s good. She is very pro-Israel and I hope in her next reincarnation she goes Ortho. Those ladies could use a fashion icon.

I really hate what Madonna represents. However, I always respect what you post even if I don’t agree with it because you are very intelligent. Keep us updated on this. I hope Madonna has a brain cell to say no against Muslims, Shitlam or whatever.

Just exactly where do the Israeli membes of Israeli Support for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Against Israel plan on living if Israel is ever, G-d forbid, destroyed?

Dear JulieJ: Unfortunately, here is Israel, we have freedom of speech. Is she really so niave she thinks she’ll survive if Israel doesn’t?

Miranda Rose Smith on August 21, 2009 at 5:59 am

I couldn’t agree more with Debbie Schlussel’s opinion. I have absolutely zero respect for Madonna, but for once she seems to be doing something right. Could she, actually, be forming a brain or the tiny beginnings of a moral conscience? Probably not, but lets laud it while it lasts.

Are any of you looking for any real solution to the problem in the Middle East, or do you all just want to get your guns out and slay any person who looks remotely like a Muslim?

gunDy on June 6, 2010 at 11:04 pm

wonder why this traitor C**T Giora lives in a land she despises, villifies, and lies about- she is free to LEAVE it and live with her Lovers the Muslims.
And Israel why did you make Kahane a criminal for saying the truth and allow scum like her to vent her seditious rants in public?

Don’t JEws have enough enemies all around, without those who side against their own? Do they think the Islamonazis will like them if they surrender? BIG NEWS if every JEw laid in the street under the rocket barrages the Muslims would come in and kill the rest.

Hummmm,so you are glad she brings her corruption and sluttiness to Israel? ok I disagree wholeheartedly with Debbie on this one,Madonna would just the same bring a pig on stage to be sacrificed by a fake rabi if it suits her,she has no values or moral principals,I don t know what was the outcome of the whole thing but I d be glad if these varmints attacked and neutrilized each other.
