Can We Reschedule the War? Madonna’s Coming

"Israel’s far-right government’s bellicosity seems to sit well with most of the voting public come election time. But it can also be a real pain when you’ve got something other than war you want to do.

So Israeli fans of Madonna, who is starting her world tour in Tel Aviv in late May, have started a Facebook petition asking Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to postpone his planned attack of Iran until after May 29, so as not to spoil the concert.

So far there has been no official response from the Israeli government on the matter, but with increased tension brewing between far-right secularists in the coalition and far-right religious blocs, it seems the government can ill-afford to alienate a potentially significant Madonna-bloc by starting a concert-cancelling war of aggression."
