A furious über right-wing French politician is threatening to sue Madonna if she repeats a swastika stunt in an upcoming Paris concert. The always-provocative singer flashed a slideshow at an Israeli concert last week showing a portion of Marine Le Pen's face, a white Nazi symbol etched between her eyes. The almost-subliminal image appeared for a split second in a montage that included Sarah Palin and Chinese prez Hu Jintao during the song "You Don't Know Me," notes the Hollywood Reporter. But it was just enough to drive Le Pen, who's running to become a member of France's National Assembly, and her National Front party around le bend, reports the Daily Mail.

"We are not a Nazi party, and object to being depicted as such," carped a party source. Snorted Le Pen, 43: “We understand how old singers who need to get people talking about them go to such extremes," adding: “If she does that in France, we will be waiting.” (Read more Madonna stories.)
