Madonna draws controversy on Instagram

Madonna has stirred up controversy after posting a photo of a Palestinian man and a Hasidic Jewish man apparently mid-kiss on Instagram.

The photo, which was posted on Sunday, has already garnered upwards of 70,000 likes in just over 24 hours. It features a Jewish man with side curls wearing a large white knitted skullcap typical of the Breslover Hasidic movement, in addition to an Arab man wearing a keffiyeh. The two appear to be leaning in for a kiss.

“This image is . ❤#rebelhearts,” the caption of the photo reads, referring to Madonna’s latest pop album.

“I see two men one Muslim perhaps and one Jewish together sharing a moment of peace. Can’t we just all get along without discussing religious beliefs?” one of the Instagram comments under the photo reads.

Another wrote: “I don’t understand all the ppl here say it’s not possible I’m Jewish from Israel my boyfriend is Arab Muslim and we live together for 3 years now!”

Many others responded quite negatively to the image, with some posting racist slurs both against Jews and Arabs.

    I will respond negatively for the obvious reason….it promotes homosexual behavior and I would bet this is what is intended considering the filthy and deviant woman who sent it out. Silentio Daemoniun.

    Madonna does name snatching quite well so why not pilfer, doctor up image. Ester was a name I recall but maybe images of convenience are ephemeral, much like that lying Devil.

    I personally know a Jew from Jordan. . .Ashkenazi (Goldstein) who married a Palestinian Muslim. It worked, and they have a nice family. I’ve known other Jew and Muslim combos, and there’s no reason it can’t work. They do have a lot in common. If only they’d get over the brainwashing in Israel on a grander scale. The few that do, like the conscientious objectors and such face a lot of hurdles, though. I personally like the picture, though I hear Madonna is not a nice person.

    I’ve had tons of gay friends too, so what’s it to me? Being a fag hag can be a lot of fun.

    rubbish. Its just two Jewish guys. One dressed as Hasidim and one dressed as Arab. A similar set of photographs involving young children sparked a controversy several years ago.
