Madonna has hit back at the Jewish Mystics who accused her of blasphemy on her new album.

As previously reported on Gigwise a group of Rabbis in Israel had blasted old Madge for writing the song ‘Isaac’ about a 16th century Jewish mystic called Yitzhak Luria.

They said she would be “punished” in heaven but Madonna now says that she’s never heard of Luria. She told MTV: "What are you going to do? 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."
