Palestinian Terrorists Threatern To Kill Madonna!

Madonna Cancels Gigs Over Death Threats

Pop queen Madonna has dropped out of three gigs in Israel after Palestinian terrorists threatened to kill her and her two young children.

The Sun says the threats against herself and her two children, seven-year-old Lourdes and three-year-old Rocco, came in a series of letters.

The newspaper says the singer "freaked out" when she learned of the threats.

It quoted a source as saying Madonna was targeted because she was a symbol of the West and not because she practises the Jewish faith Kabbalah.

"At first, she was prepared to go on stage anyway and hire extra security," the source said.

"But she was not ready to take chances with her kids, they are her whole world."

The newspaper said the letters were sent to Madonna's Los Angeles office.

Madonna was due to perform three gigs in September in Tel Aviv, including a televised concert on September 11 to mark the third anniversary of al-Qaida's attacks on America.

However, her representatives have insisted the dates have been cancelled because the singer wants to concentrate on Europe.

Great source Mr. self acclaimed, world renowned historian. You take the word of a tabloid newspaper that has a reputation of twisting stories to attract greater sales. Really, one would have to doubt how accurate anything you say is if you're this naive

Yes, you're right, Horus, Palestinian terrorists never kill anyone when they have the chance. They're such humanitarians, right?

Horus, you accuse and criticise people of launching personal attacks-I belive your comments today show you up for what you are, a man who cannot accept that there are some palestinians out there who are cold bloodied terrorists.

Horus,I used quotes from the aol website, the story has not been denied by madonna or has anyone proved it was wrong.

While we are on sources,I do not believe you can criticise me when your world view is shaped by arab media sources, and a use of anti israeli propaganda websites.

Maybe we should unite the world, Jews and Muslims, Indians and Pakistanis, Americans and French, with a Wickerman-style ritual burning of Madonna and Britney Spears? Small (very small) price to pay for world peace.

I'll second that... Too bad in typical terrorist group form they are most likely just blowing smoke. Or since they decided to announce their plans to the world they most likely screwed up already and don't know it. You can have all the passion in the world but it takes some serious brass clangy ones and a lot of brains to tell someone you are going to whack them, then actually do it.

... if this is true, then it is a shame to see terrorism succeeding. Not quite the shame it is that Israeli anti-terrorism operations have inflicted so much pain upon innocent Palestinians, but a shame nontheless.

Ok,

Not that I want to wish Madonna bad, despite the fact she hasn't put anything original out since the Reagan adminstration, and I don't want to give any sort of credit to Palistinian terrorists, but I have to ask?

Superfly,

Israel is not a wasteland. I don't agree with you on most issues, but I know you're informed about the conflict. So as I'm sure you're aware, Israel has quite modern cities, and Madonna has chosen her spiritual roots lay in Jewish mysticism. Not to mention she probably has a good number of fans in Israel for whom she'd probably like to perform. I think the reasons for her performing there are fairly clear.

However, I still have a lot of respect for Madonna.

Both of your Senators and 8 Congressmen from California are Jewish. Most Jews are pro-Israeli..........I didn't know Tom Lantos was a Holocaust survivor though. I've read some of his statements on the Middle East.

I am all for foriegn aid as long as it's on a need basis only. The Israelis aren't starving.

They aren't starving....But could you name me one country where US aid results in ending starvation? Look at Egypt and where our aid money goes there..........

I don't agree with aid to Egypt either.

I am aware that Boxer and Feinstein are Jewish. Boxer is one of my favorite Senators. In fact most of my favorite Senators are Jewish; Schumer (D-NY), Feingold (D-WI), Wyden (D-OR), Lautenburg (D-NJ). It was a tragedy that we lost Wellstone (D-MN).


I don't want to take too much attention away from Madonna in this thread  Big grin but about the few who have spoke out against aid to Israel have lost there seats. There opponents were funded by large donors from out side there districts. Paul Findley (R-IL), Earl Hilliard (D-AL) and Cynthia McKinney (D-GA).

The US needs to end its astronomical financial aid to Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and any other countries in the world that get such crazy amounts of financial aid.

This includes the countries the US bribes in order to allow it to operate military bases. Examples are Turkey, Kazakhstan, and Uzbekistan.

The US government's job is to help its own people, not to go around and babysitting certain countries of the world.

I completely agree with Superfly.

If the US wants to pour its money somewhere, let it pour it into needy African nations that are suffering from famine and disease.

Right and before you start ripping each other to pieces, just for the record:

The old lady (Madonna) stated that there never was a threat from Palestinian extremists towards her life, at least none that was sent to a newspaper or to Madonna directly.

Oh and btw: She won't come to Germany either...reason: Lack of interest on the fan side. After hearing that she will present lesbian sex onstage and an execution on an electric chair, I have to say: Thank God!! Maybe if that chair malfunctions.....

Ok, now please re-start kicking each other Big grin

Go Canada - and you will naturally be biased against Palestine, and that is also understandable. But that still does not give you the right to generalize all Arabs as you did with Horus.

Anyone know which group it was that wants to attack her?

And Go Canada, as hard as it might seem to be, I have also been brought up with my own mind and nobody taught me politics, I made up my own mind about it. From all your previous posts, I doubt you are anti-Zionist at all, and you have been anti-arab a lot of the time. So your coming here saying the Arab media is biased ,what about the Western media? Please dont give me that bullshit, the media there reports nothing that would harm Israels image, and it is the reason why many close minded users here think of the Mideast the way they do. Hey, "Mr. self acclaimed, world renowned historian", how many Arab friends do you have and how many times have you visited Arab countries out of interest?

LOL!  Big thumbs up

Actually, early in May there was Marijuana Day celebrations in Tel Aviv, and if I'm not mistaken they drew something like 100,000 people! In a county of six million, that's insane! So I think there would be more than the 50-60 AARP'sters at her concert, although that is still a great image Big grin
