Thread Name: The Wisdom of Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens
Subject: RE: The Wisdom of Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens
Little Hawk, believe me, I am not a jealous man. If I was, I would be jealous of everyone whom I admire and who is successful. I would be jealous of Bert Jansch, of Dylan, Springsteen, Neil Young, Charles Mingus, and loads of others. (Now these are people to be jealous of.)I can't prove I'm not jealous as you can prove I am: which makes your point totally pointless and a little unfair.

Just to clear things up, I am not tarring all Muslims with the same brush. I have known and worked with muslims for the last 25 years and have got on with them, but that does not mean that I cannot have issues with them, as I do. If I had launched an attack on right wing christian fundalmentalists, I expect that I would have the support of most of those attackng me now.

Dave the Gnome, I sprout my bollocks all over the place, as indeed, you do. It is the nature of free speech.
