Ok, one more thing I just can't pass up

You know the rally John Stewart headed up? They one about 'restoring sanity'? Well, apparently Stewart & Co. consider banning photography(can't let the peasants know exactly what's going on, can they?) and hanging out with people who approve the death penalty for insulting the islamic prophet(bees pee upon him):
At least at the moment, Wikipedia has a pretty good page on how the interview went:

On February 21, 1989, Yusuf Islam addressed students at Kingston University in London about his conversion to Islam and was asked about the controversy in the Muslim world and the fatwa calling for Salman Rushdie’s execution. He replied, “He must be killed. The Qur’an makes it clear – if someone defames the prophet, then he must die.” [5]

Newspapers quickly denounced what was seen as Yusuf Islam’s support for the assassination of Rushdie and the next day Yusuf released a statement saying that he was not personally encouraging anybody to be a vigilante,[1] and that he was only stating that blasphemy is a capital offense according to the Qur’an.

However on March 8, 1989, while speaking in London’s Regents Park Mosque, Yusuf Islam was asked by a Christian Science Monitor reporter how he would “cope with the idea of killing a writer for writing a book.” He is reported to have replied:

In Islam there is a line between let’s say freedom and the line which is then transgressed into immorality and irresponsibility and I think as far as this writer is concerned, unfortunately, he has been irresponsible with his freedom of speech. Salman Rushdie or indeed any writer who abuses the prophet, or indeed any prophet, under Islamic law, the sentence for that is actually death. It’s got to be seen as a deterrent, so that other people should not commit the same mistake again.

Well, Yusuf- may I call you Yusuf?-fuck you. And your prophet. You have have performed submission, but the rest of us haven't, and we still believe in that real Freedom of Speech thing. So fuck you and every sharia-loving asshole out there. You call for murder of someone for their words, and then whine that he was 'irresponsible' with his freedom of speech? You, sir, are a inflamed boil on the anus of humanity. So take your 'submit to sharia' shit, eat it and die.

Hey, we can say "It would be seen as a deterrent", couldn't we?

Back in about 2005, I bought a Cat Stevens CD. At the time I thought he'd been mislead by a bunch of extremists and had seen the error of his ways. Seems like I was wrong, he sounds like a complete twat.

I also read Rushdie's, "Satanic Verses" back in t'80s and, yes, Rushdie was taking the piss out of Khomeini with fiction. Compared to what their kiddy fiddler of a cult founder is supposed to have got up to during his life, it was pretty mild. Does Rushdie's piss take rate worse than saying someone should be killed for satire, no way, not on the same scale or the same planet.

Here's another example of what those backwards followers of a kiddy fiddler and his global endarkenment really think of us (just a shame the couple were paying for the pleasure of hearing it):

My response to him is: Why is it ALL moslem countries are a mess, and regardless of which country they come from Moslem immigrants to the west are the ONLY group of immigrants who underperform the host population in education, economic success, staying out of prison, staying off welfare, getting jobs...

So superior? I think the figures speak for them selves, give me blaspheming sodomite apostates any day of the week.

I would still be a huge fan of Cat Steven's music to this day if he had not gone off the deep end with his islam crap.
