Madonna - MDNA Tour: VIDEO - Discours pour la Paix - Tel Aviv, Israël - 31 mai 2012.
Madonna launched her world tour in Tel Aviv last night with a plea for peace in the Middle East in Tel Aviv's Ramat Gan Stadium, which she billed as a "Concert for Peace":
"I chose to start my world tour in Israel for a very specific and important reason. As you know, the Middle East and all the conflicts that have been occurring here for thousands of years - they have to stop.
You can't be a fan of mine and not want peace in the world. We all bleed the same colour. If we can all rise above our egos and our titles and the names of our countries and our religions, and treat everyone around us with dignity and respect, then we are on the road to peace. If there is peace here in the Middle East, there can be peace in the whole world."
