Madonna 'Peace' Concert: an Open Letter to Israeli NGOsSalem-News.com
It has come to our attention that several Israeli NGOs have agreed to participate in Madonna's "peace concert", scheduled for May 31st.
Each and every artist playing Israel while turning a blind eye to its ongoing occupation and apartheid against the Palestinian people, is also helping it maintain a facade of business as usual while sending a green light to the continuation of the systematic violations of international law and the disrespect of universally recognized human rights.
Madonna does not only keep silent about the elementary demand for Palestinian rights, she instead sides with the oppressor in her explicit support of the criminal Israeli regime.
Therefore, holding a "peace concert", which utterly disregards Palestinian rights would be nothing but a blatant attempt at whitewashing Israeli crimes - an effort that may only be carried out with the help and active participation of your organization.
It is an unfortunate situation that most Israeli NGOs will assist in such a re-branding campaign rather than shun away from it. We therefore urge you to side with freedom, justice and equality. Take these values seriously and refuse to lend a hand to the peace propaganda machine.
