He was on Jools Holland, singing some drab, sad utterly joyless piece of gobshite. What a shame, this guy had talent, he used to sing from the heart.

Jools Holland is a happy chap who plays the piano pretty well, and has a diverse taste in music. Sadly, some of the acts on his excellent show are rather crapolistic.

I've already been through with another thread. The fact is Yusuf Islam won damages in a slander case against two crappy UK "newspapers" who made bogus claims about his non existent ties to terrorism. These claims were proven to be false through British legal processes, the UK government through Jack Straw declared these claims to be false and as far as i know Yusuf Islam is a member of the British Muslim Council...Which (for all you BNP nut jobs) is not a terrorist group.
If i were you Scott i'd not bother with this thread, idiots rarely allow facts to change their delusions.

Peace train was alright though. He sang that at the end. But he didn't sing it like he used to sing it. It sounded like he didn't mean it at all. What a shame.

all muslim organisations like this are usually connected to terrorism. This council is a bunch of freeloading KNOBHEADS whuse funding has been threatened by the government, for their failure to condemn terrorism. They are a self appointed un-elected group of unrepresentative spongers, who we have to pay for . I am not surprised that cat stevens is a member of this self serving group of nonentities.

Oh ok, so if i understand you correctly your saying that the Government is using taxpayers money to fund groups that have connections/fund terrorism. Wow you would think that would have made the Murdock comics.
I bet you don't like cats either. Anyway i'm not getting into this pointless conversation again, seems to me that you think being a Muslim automatically makes you a terrorist. By the same logic all Catholics must be terrorist too, but you know that's not the case. 0h well, whatever, never mind.

Lol. I agree, it wasn't great and was a little out of tune. Even so, he's not a terrorist in any way. This is just more of the anti Muslim hype.

Terrorism is an inspiration from the satanic book used by muslims.They quote it when they do terrorism and this gives them the nerve and courage.

They may quote, but their interpretation may be incorrect.

Is there any central authority to moniter the interpretation or stop them from doing this misinterpretation. Do moderate muslims condemn them?

the muslims have no-one at the top, like the Pope, and the College of Cardinals, or the General Synod of the Anglicans. It seems in the UK any old beardy waster can set himself up as a mullah or Imam, and call himself a Sheikh.

It was in all the papers and on the BBC. The Minister responsible told this "council" that unless they showed a more active attitude to condemning terrorism and extremism, they would get their funding stopped. I am a Catholic and no catholics sympathised with the IRA, as it was never a catholic organisation, but a nationalist and partly marxist outfit. I don't care if you don't believe the account, but they ARE government funded.

just this one fact will condemn him, as this council is almost universally despised, even by a majority of muslims.
