Madonna’s Posts for Peace

Madonna’s Posts for Peace

Madonna, the queen of pop music, wrote a tribute on her Facebook page last Saturday July 12th to the Israeli murdered teens. In her post she appealed to Israel and Palestine to bring an end to the endless escalation of bloodshed, and reach a ceasefire agreement.

While Gaza fires rockets continuously and Israel implements Operation Protective Edge that consists of conducting airstrikes in retaliation, Madonna uses social media to try to ramp up a movement towards peace. The iconic star has made multiple posts on her Facebook page starting last Friday, July 11th. The posts are quotes paired with photos pleading for an end to the violence in the Middle East.

Her multiple posts include slogans such as, “Pray for Peace in the Middle East!” This is accompanied on her Facebook wall with a photo of hands folded in prayer. Other posted quotes are “Keep calm and carry on! Shabbat Shalom!” –Madonna.

Posted last this past Saturday, is a ceasefire request with a photo tribute to the three young Israeli Yeshiva students who were kidnapped from the West Bank then discovered murdered. Right below the Israeli tribute, also posted on Saturday is nearly the same quote, saying “Cease fire on both sides! All human life is valuable! Stop the violence!” –Madonna. This quote however is paired with the portrait of the 16-year-old Palestinian boy, who was kidnapped in Jerusalem in retaliation for the kidnapping of the Israeli boys; he too was found dead.

The long time diva, now age 55, does not actually identify her as Jewish. Madonna has taken an intense interest into studying Jewish mysticism, or Kabballah. She is also a passionate advocate for the ancient Jewish study.

Madonna is known to have a keen interest in Kabballah, the study of Jewish mysticism, and although she doesn’t identify herself as Jewish, Madonna is a strong advocate for the ancient Jewish study.
