Default Yusuf Islam (formerly known as) Cat Stevens


The entertainer better known as "Cat Steven" Yusuf Islam, welcome back. After puting up his guitar in 1977 he just released his first album. I for one miss his style and thought he contributed a lot of beautiful, peacefull songs to the music world.

Regardless of all of the controversy about his belief's, I for one am happy to have such talent back, good luck "Yusuf"!

I'm not so sure Stevens is Mr. Peace Love & Happiness.

My thought's about Yusuf Islam were, regardless of all of the contoversy about his belief's" at this time in his life, it's all about and only about his music. We know where he stands, do we know about other entertainer's belief's, and do we really care?

To myself it's about the music he played, I have to look beyond the man, but I do still wecome him back, and I also think his talent was missed regardless.

Actually Deedee, if you were Jewish I don't think you would have made your post. And, yes, we really do care about someone's beliefs because one should not support those who were (or are) involved with terrorism and when that group has stated that its sole mission is to wipe out a country (Israel). Welcome him back and let him put on his Peace Train al qaeda and every other member of the PLO and its splinter groups.

First, please don't question my belief's, you have no idea what I believe in.

My thread was about the man's contributory to music that he put out for years before he made a move to what he believes in. He stop writing and performing back in 77. I enjoyed his music back then, and now I would like to see what he is saying with his music.

I know that like him, in some way I took a chance writing this "Thread". I knew it would be controversial but it was about the music, I'm sorry if I offended anyone that was never my intention especially with the way the world is today.

it isn't clear to me what his status is.

It is hard to believe he is hate-filled in the way the terrorists are and it seems his primary transgression has been his supposed support of the murder contract on the life of Salman Rushdie, an issue which has been disputed at times.

For a time I couldn't even listen to his old albums in spite of having been an avid fan and having seen him in concert a few times way back when but today i've come to the decision he probably isnt onboard with the islamic terrorists so ive started listening again.

I have nothing but fond memories of Cat.. It's good to see him return... As long as he doesn't respect Osama's fatwa issued in 1998 ..

It states:

"The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies--civilians and military--is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it, in order to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque and the holy mosque from their grip, and in order for their armies to move out of all the lands of Islam, defeated and unable to threaten any Muslim"

But, he always has been a person of peace.. I can't see him being a radical..

Deedee

You completely misunderstood what I stated: I was not questioning your beliefs - believe what you want - I am questioning Stevens' beliefs (which I assume I have a right to do). I don't have to agree with you and you don't need to agree with me - you were stating an opinion as I was. I happen to be Jewish and we Jews are very sensitive about those who in the past have supported terrorism (which he has done) - if he has in fact jumped on his Peace Train then he will be judged for those actions - as of now, I am still judging him for past actions.

And please don't post stuff that pre-supposes that all Jews think like you or agree with you.

Frankly, I don't believe the media's demonizing of Muslims or of Cat/Yusef. He probably did make a statement at some point in his past that he has since regretted. But would anyone want to be categorized simply because of something they may have said quite a few years ago, and which may have been misquoted and/or quoted out of context by some media source and then repeated ad nauseum.

However, don't expect to see Mr. Stevens/Islam in concert in the US anytime soon, as I remember hearing of him being removed from a plane because he's prohibited from entering the US by Homeland Insecurity.

Shalom!

As I already tried to express to you, my view's were about the music. Music is mostly what I write about, so when I read about Yusuf Islam making a comback with his music I really want to hear how his voice sounds, and what he is singing about, I was a big fan of his back in the seventies.

I tried to say that I didn't mean to offend with my remarks, lets see what he has to offer.
