"I hope and pray that we will soon break free from this awful cycle of destruction and create a new path towards peace", the statement continued.

Many boycott calls have targeted Madonna, who arrived in Israel late Tuesday for her guest performance at the Eurovision final on Saturday.

The European Broadcast Union (EBU), which has overall responsibility for the annual event, said it has not yet completed the paperwork necessary for Madonna to perform.

Israel is hosting the Eurovision contest after local singer Netta Barzilai won a year ago with her song "Toy".

As per Pitchfork, Eurovision's executive supervisor Jon Ola Sand said at a press conference just yesterday that Madonna's two-song performance isn't confirmed, as she hasn't signed a contract yet.

The Israeli Defense Forces have reportedly deployed a large number of the country's Iron Dome missile Defence batteries anticipating further violence ahead of the anniversary of the United States embassy moving to Jerusalem as well as the Palestinians' Nakba Day, which was marred by violence in 2018. "We don't have a signed contract with her team, and if we do not have a signed contract, she can not perform on our stage". "We have an artist that would love to participate on the stage, but without the contract, it can't happen".

Australian singer Kate Miller-Heidke at the Eurovision semi finals. In a statement, it accused Madonna of "artwashing" and urged her to cancel.

London Palestine Action are releasing three Madonna spoofs to draw attention to the issue, including "Madonna Don't Go", a parody of Papa Don't Preach, as the Queen of Pop is due to perform at the star-studded event in Tel Aviv.

The parody comes as the Eurovision Song Contest kicks off this week in Tel Aviv with two semi-finals set to air this evening (May 14) and a second one on Thursday (May 16). Eurovision tradition holds that the winning nation hosts the following year's event.

The BDS - modelled after the South African anti-apartheid movement - was formed in 2005 by more than 200 Palestinian civil society organisations, urging non-violent pressure on Israel until it complies with global law. Since then, 52 countries have taken part with the competition growing beyond Europe, even including Australia since 2015. Each country submits an original song that is performed live on the show. The country with the most points is declared the victor.

While the Jewish religious rules prohibit working from sundown on Fridays until nightfall on Saturdays, Eurovision rehearsals and show preparations are expected to take place throughout the holy day.
