But the notion that this tabloid infiltrated "secret fundamentalist websites" where they confirmed Madonna's danger - that's where I part company with the gossip paper.
Be that as it may, this Madonna news provides a needed distraction from the din of the Madoff and Merkin madness. [Hat tip to MK on facebook.]
Madonna targeted by Muslim fanatics over Israel's attack on Gaza
EXCLUSIVE Superstar's fear as Jewish links make her a target over the Gaza war Islam fanatics vow to behead Madonna Ex-Israeli agents guard her 24hrs a day. She warns Guy: Beef up kids' security
By Daniel Jones
Madonna has urgently beefed up her family's security after being targeted by Muslim fanatics seeking revenge for Israel's attacks on Gaza.
One Palestinian terrorist chief has threatened to BEHEAD the superstar who is a dedicated member of the Jewish Kabbalah sect.
Madonna is also desperately worried for the safety of her children Lourdes, 12, Rocco, eight, and adopted David Banda, three.
We can reveal the 50-year-old singer has now...
Got two ruthless Israeli former secret service agents to beef up her security.
Warned her ex-husband Guy Ritchie his home in busy central London is vulnerable to attack when he has the kids.
Told him to MOVE to a more secure pad where the children will be safe.
A source close to the singer said: "Madonna is well known for her Kabbalah faith and support for Israel, having visited the country several times.
"This seems to upset extreme Muslims who forget she respects people of all faiths whether Islamic, Christian or Buddhist. Like anyone else she would like a peaceful end to the problems in Gaza.
"But she is beside herself with worry, not just for her own safety but for that of the children."
Last week The People uncovered the hatred aimed at Madonna when we infiltrated secret fundamentalist Muslim websites. Our investigator posed as a British extremist to gain entry to the password-protected sites.
On the notorious Islambase site, a Palestinian terror leader says: "If I meet these whores I will have the honor to be the first one to cut the head off Madonna if they will keep spreading their satanic culture against Islam."
The vile threat was made by Muhammad Abdel-Al, leader of the Popular Resistance Committees - a fringe group of Palestinian militia who have launched thousands of rocket attacks on Israel.
Another misspelt rant on Islambase says: "What can be done to stop kuffars like maddona supporting the killing in Gaza?"
On another site called Ummah a fanatic naming himself Hammed10 writes: "Madonna is a disgrace.
"She insults us with her slutty behaviour and then she insults us further with her love of the Jewish kuffar non-Muslims.
"Some brothers were talking about what to do about this the other day on another site. I don't want to say too much on here. But you can pm me send a private message."
Madonna, who met President Shimon Peres when she visited Israel two years ago, has now hired two Israeli minders who were in Mossad, Israel's ruthless secret service.
The pair were beside the singer during her last world tour and drove her in a black Audi on her most recent visit to London.
The People can also reveal the star has told ex-hubby Guy, 40, she is unhappy about the children staying at his current home yards from a busy road in London's W1 district.
On the advice of her security team Madonna has warned Guy that the four-storey house has insufficient protection.
Guy has now agreed to find a new place when he returns to London next month after filming his latest movie in New York.
Madonna's security team will check the new pad before the children - back in the US with their mum after a holiday in the Maldives - are allowed to stay.
A source close to the family said: "It's a terrible situation. Madonna wouldn't normally dream of stopping her children from seeing their father.
"But with her fears over security she has made it clear she dos not believe his current home is suitable. Guy accepts the safety of the kids is top priority."
It's not the first time Madonna has been in fear of kidnappers. Three years ago she and Guy were reported to be the target of Russian gangsters.
