Madonna Slams Blasphemy Claims

MADONNA has hit out at claims a song on her new album is blasphemous and offensive towards Kabbalist Jews.

Kabbalist rabbis have alleged ISAAC is about 16th century Jewish mystic YITZHAK LURIA, whose name should not be used for profit - and are pushing for Madonna to be thrown out of the Kabbalah community.

But the singer - an avid follower of the mystical offshoot of Judaism - insists her critics have completely misunderstood and she isn't singing about Luria at all.

She tells MTV News, "The absurd thing is that it's not what they think it is. It's not a song about Isaac Luria. I don't know anything about Isaac Luria, so I couldn't write a song about him.

"The song is called 'Isaac' because the man who is singing on it is named Isaac. I think one person saw that name and decided that they were going to go out and say I was doing something blasphemous, and it's just not true.

"I seem to be getting a lot of criticism from people who haven't even heard the album yet... What are you going to do?"
