A Palestinian group used a video clip one of Madonna’s songs Monday to urge the superstar to boycott the Eurovision Song Contest in Israel later this week, reports Anadolu Agency.

The Facebook video recorded by London Palestinian Action to the melody of Madonna’s 1986 song, Papa Don’t Preach, repeatedly asks the American entertainer to “boycott apartheid.”

Madonna is expected to perform at the controversial singing contest Saturday. She will lead a delegation of 135 people, including 40 members of a choir headed by rapper Quabo, 25 dancers and dozens of professionals who are in charge of choreography, stage, lighting and video art, according to Israel media.

The 64th Eurovision Song Contest will take place at the Expo Tel Aviv (International Convention Center) throughout the week with the grand finale May 18.
