Superstar pop singer Madonna angered fans and sparked vicious exchanges among pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian social media users on Friday after posting a photograph of two topless men meant to represent Jews and Muslims holding hands.

In the photograph, one man bears the tattoo of a Star of David while another has emblazoned the image of a Muslim crescent. Some of the more religious Instagram users blasted Madonna for degrading religion.

Madonna has posted a series of pro-peace messages on her social media accounts which call for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
