Madonna, known for a radical liberal point of view along with outrageous behavior, has done it again. This time she managed to cause international waves in two countries sensitive to Nazi icons and symbolism. While in concert in Tel Aviv, Israel, Madonna projected images on a large screen as she sang, “Nobody Knows Me.”
However, among images of Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and a Vice Presidential candidate, and Hu Jintao, the Chinese president, Madonna flashed an image of Marine Le Pen, the political leader of the National Front of France. A white swastika was superimposed on Le Pen’s forehead, between his eyes.
Le Pen was naturally furious over the implications and has threatened legal action if Madonna does not remove the offensive symbolism from her projection. Though the National Front is considered a right wing political party, a party spokesperson clarified that the National Front are in no way a Nazi party.
