Material Girl Nixes Israel Dates

Has the Material Girl become the new target for terrorists? According to Britain's The Sun, Madonna cancelled the Israel leg of her Reinvention Tour after terrorists allegedly threatened to kill her and her children, Lourdes and Rocco, if she performed in Israel. The threats reportedly came in the form of a series of poison-pen letters that were sent to Madonna's Los Angeles office. According to The Sun, Madonna first thought she was being targeted because of her kabbalah beliefs, but then she realized that she was being threatened because she represented all the things that these terrorists hate about the West. The terrorists were reportedly Palestinian, and Madonna took them seriously enough to cancel her three September concerts at Tel Aviv's Bloomfield Stadium -- her first concerts in Israel since 1993 -- because they knew intimate details about members of her staff.
