Earlier Thursday, Madonna donated 580 tickets to her show in Tel Aviv to members of the Israeli and Palestinian peace camps, who are set to take part in a special tribunal on peace.

The singer met with Israeli and Palestinian peace activists on Wednesday, ahead of her concert in front of an estimated 30,000 fans in Tel Aviv on Thursday.

Madonna, who has termed her show a “peace concert,” met with activists including veteran journalist Ron Pundak, and Yariv Openheimer, director of Peace Now, and pledged to talk about peace from the stage at the Ramat Gan Stadium.

Pundak told Haaretz that aside from Jewish peace activists, “there will be many Palestinian and Arab-Israeli activists” at Madonna’s show.

However, not all the groups were excited about the prospect of accepting the pop icon’s invitation.
