zander (inactive) Cat Stevens aka Islam (56* d) RE: Cat Stevens aka Islam 15 Jul 00

It may interest all those who will carry on regardless singing Cat Stephens songs to know that despite his religious conversion he still draws the royaltie's from his songs, at least some of which went to support the terrorist campaign [ fatwah ] to kill the author Salman Rushdie. Cat Stephens was a Cypriot raised in England where he was blessed with freedom of speech, something he sought to deny Salman Rushdie by trying to have him killed. As someone once said " I may disagree with everything you say but I will defend to the death you right to say it ". So I will not be a hippocrite and give money to or support this closet terrorist. Peace and Love, Dave
