Madonna meets with Yariv Oppenheimer and other peace activists

madonna186x140.jpgPop star Madonna deserves praise for her tribute to Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts. The world's top selling female recording artist of all times chose to launch her new world tour in Israel. She is using the podium and the global attention to help advance Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts.

Yesterday, at a meeting with Israeli and Palestinian peace activists, Madonna promised that at her debut performance, tonight, she will talk about peace. Madonna also donated 600 tickets to Israeli and Palestinian peace activists as a salute to their important work.

APN salutes Madonna and urges other artists who visit Israel to follow suit: Turn down calls for boycotting Israel, show up, and make common cause with pro-peace Israelis and Palestinians.
