Could Madonna Provide Peace till Summer?

My previous post may have come from The Onion, but despite what you'd think, this one doesn't: it's actually from Haaretz: "Israeli Fans Ask PM to Hold Off Iran Attack over Madonna Show." There's a Facebook Page asking Bibi not to attack Iran until after May 29 so as not to interfere with her concert.Unless it's a gag, the page is here (my Hebrew's pretty poor but it says "Bibi: No! No war with Iran until after the Madonna concert." And some of the posts are in English).And the Facebook page contains this picture as well:

I have to admit, this would be the most talked-about surprise attack in history if it does take place.
