Yusuf is the voice of moderation for Muslims and Non muslims. He is one of the best human beings alive in this world,which is in the dark of war, terror, and greed with consequent financial Tsunami.
This world is lucky to have him.

Cat Stevens is an example of what happens to a peaceful hippy who converts to islam. He becomes a blood thirsty murderer.

I like his music.... ok so he converted/reverted to Islam... that does not mean that he has committed any crime.

I do think that he agreed with the Fatwa against Rushdie.. but I think he recanted that (but dont quote me on it).

I have not listened to any of his music since he became a Muslim tho.

I like that song too...
But my favourite is: Morning has broken sung by Cat Stevens... lyrics by Eleanor Farjeon.

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the word

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day

I love my Lady D'Arbanville, but later I was disaapointed it was written to his friend Patti D'Arbanville when she left to NW,not about a moment of death as I thought.Not worth the tears I shed :)

David Cameron Prime Minister of the UK said he is working on muslim immigrants that threaten the country be deported back to where they came from.

That means those horrible violent signs muslims carry in the streets will be illegal.

In the US, it is also a crime, as it is threat of violence.
yayyyy

islam means violence.
