• Madonna: Only Way To Stop Terrorism Is To ‘Love Unconditionally’

    Madonna paid tribute to the victims of the Paris terror attacks Saturday during which she declared that that the cause for the senseless acts of violence by the terrorist group ISIS is that we don’t treat “every human being with dignity and respect.”

    The 57-year-old pop star told the crowd during her concert in Stockholm, Sweden that she felt “torn” about dancing and having fun at a concert “when people are crying over the loss of their loved ones.”

    “However, that is exactly what these people want to do. They want to shut us up. They want to silence us. And we won’t let them. We will never let them!” she exclaimed.

    She said she was going to cancel her show in wake of the attacks but changed her mind.

    “I thought to myself, ‘Why should I give that to them? Why should I allow them to stop me and to stop us from enjoying freedom?’ All of the places where people were killed were places where people were having fun. People were enjoying themselves, eating in restaurants, dancing, singing, watching a soccer match,” the one-time queen of pop claimed said. “These are freedoms that we take for granted, of course, and we must not but they’re freedoms that we deserve. We work hard and we deserve to have fun, and there is no one in this world that should have the right to stop us from doing what we love.”

    The audience applauded her as she spoke, but then Madonna claimed if we gave ISIS, the group that beheads, throws over the sides of buildings, and stones to death gay men, unconditional love they would stop inflicting horrific acts of violence.

    “Yes, there are people who have no respect for human life and there are people that do atrocious, degrading and unforgivable things to other human beings,” she said, “but we will never ever, ever change this world that we live in if we do not change ourselves, if we do not change the way that we treat one another on a daily basis.”

    “Only love will change the world,” she added. “But it’s very hard to love unconditionally and it’s very hard to love that which we do not understand, or that which is different than we are. But we have to or this will go on and on forever.”
