Madonna Defends Eurovision Israel Appearance

-

Pop superstar Madonna defended her decision to appear at Eurovision Israel this week.

"I'll never stop playing music to suit someone's political agenda nor will I stop speaking out against violations of human rights wherever in the world they may be," she told Reuters.

"My heart breaks every time I hear about the innocent lives that are lost in this region and the violence that is so often perpetuated to suit the political goals of people who benefit from this ancient conflict. I hope and pray that we will soon break free from this terrible cycle of destruction and create a new path towards peace," she said.

Madonna has never converted to Judaism, but she follows a form of Kabbalah that is geared toward non-Jews with an interest in Jewish thought and mysticism.
