How do you know thats true? If he hadn't fought and won awards for the former slander you'd say thats was true too. And why would he fight this if what you say is true.

I remember when he condemned Rushdie. After the heat was off and Khomeini dead, he recanted what he had said. Being in the public eye, he was probably afraid of not condemning Rushdie lest a fatwa be placed on him as well. It appears that the only way they can keep the "faithful" towing the line is through a culture of fear and through a herd mentality.

Cat Stevens: From "Peace Train" to The Religion of Rest-In-Peace!!! I remember when a reporter interviewed Cat Stevens and asked him if he was careful about or did any research into whether the Islamic charities he contributed money to were financing terrorism, to which he replied something to the effect that that was not his role or responsibility, and then later on he refused to condemn Palestinian suicide bombers! What a cowardly moron!

AN ISLAMIC HISTORY OF EUROPE:

BBC Documentary Film

February 2007

Watch the BBC Documentary Film here: http://video.google.com/videoplay...

In this 90-minute BBC documentary, Rageh Omaar uncovers the hidden story of Europe's Islamic past and looks back to a golden age when European civilisation was enriched by Islamic learning.

Rageh travels across medieval Muslim Europe to reveal the vibrant civilisation that Muslims brought to the West.

This evocative film brings to life a time when emirs and caliphs dominated Spain and Sicily and Islamic scholarship swept into the major cities of Europe.

His journey reveals the debt owed to Islam for its vital contribution to the European Renaissance.

This documentary looks at the civilisation that was established in Spain under Muslim rule and how this society, inspired by Islam, was far advanced from any European society, that was going through the ‘Dark Ages’. It also establishes a fact that is rarely acredited to Muslim history, that the basis of intellectual and cultural revival in Europe known as the Renaissance came about only because of the intellectual advancement of Muslim Spain and its willingness to share knowledge and wisdom with wider Europe.

Yes, the Umayyads from Damascus, who settled in Cordoba in 755, were peaceable and bought the sciences, philosophy and art, not to mention music and more sophisticated musical instruments, into Spain long before the Italian Renaissance began in Florence. The three major religions in Spain, Christianity, Islam and Judaism, all thrived under peaceful Umayyad rule, with both Christians and Jews holding high offices and governorships in several cities. This lasted for on and off for almost 800 years until the Horde of the Unwashed, the Berbers, with their draconian version of Islam, overthrew the Umayyads and plunged Spain back into the dark ages. It was then that the Spaniards appealed to Rome for the Crusaders to help them rid Spain of the new barbarians. Christian fanaticism overtook Spain resulting in the Spanish Inquisition, expelling Jews who had resided in Spain for many, many centuries as well as the deposed Umayyads, both who had become integrated into Spanish life over the centuries.

As for Cat Stevens, he has exhibited a lot of fear and cowardice by both condemning Rushdie and then when the heat was off, recanting his condemnation. As the child of Greek immigrants, Cat Stevens could have embraced the more moderate, western Islam of Bosnia and Herzegovina, where they do not practice violent jihad or carry out the practice of murderous fatwas. As for his support of "charities" that were actually fronts for terrorist organizations, he probably was ignorant of their true intent.

Thanks Christians in this forum for demonstrating and exposing the biblical true ethics and morals!

Thanks for demonstrating to us how much you do NOT trust your Bible and how much you do not obey your biblical Jesus as he orders you in your own bible:

Jesus said:
"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;" [Matthew 5:44](KJV)

"Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God." [1 Corinthians 6:10](KJV)

Then do not wonder why people in large masses are leaving the hypocritical christianity and never look back!

You are doing a good job in helping people leaving christianity. Keep the good job!!

I am amused at the condemnation of Islam.
"Any westerner who converts to Islam is nothing but a cowardly spinless b*stard"? Seriously? You are a joke.
The negative remarks given above has shown nothing but your shallowness and sad existence.
I truly feel sorry for you. Without in-depth understanding of the word and meaning of Islam, you have made yourself seem like helpless pathetic group of people who magnifies the glory of their stupidity. Tsk..tsk..
Your lack of knowledge combined with a superiority complex without direction is an act of blind terrorist by itself.

Gee, I read the Qur'an and Hadiths and see a man, called "Mohammad" by his deluded sycophants, who met "Gabriel" in a cave one day, and, through "Gabriel's" perverted influence, became a megalomaniacal thief, rapist, and murderer who hated Jews in particular because they rightly rejected him as a false prophet.

Islam condemns itself.

If your car is broken, then you can not fix it in a hospital! right?!
OK, then if I want to know any thing or have any thing I have to go to the right place and the right person.
If I want to learn engineering, I must go to the engineering college, not to the medical college.
If I want to knew the right thing about Islam, I must listen from Muslims, then I can see.
not from any other people.
I said all this because I hear a lot of rumors about Islam.
Please, dont talk about Islam with out know everything about it.
there are so many things in this life are not what they seem at the first time, and there are so many things in this life are not what people talk about it. like rumors...
