However he is a very different person today than he was back then. Cat Steven’s denounced his old life back in the late 70 s/early 80 s. When he receives his royalty checks, he cashes them and gives the money away to whomever is nearby. This is not done out of a sense of generosity, but because of the contempt he now feels for the man he used to be; he wants no part of that life. When Rushdie wrote The Satanic Verses and a bounty was put on his head, Yusuf Islam called for Rushdie’s death. Prior to 9/11 he also declared jihad against all infidels. He believes that we all must die. Judging from what I have read of your blog, we share a lot of views on our current government and the general state of things. I don’t look for terrorists under every bush, and I’m not saying that Yusuf Islam is one. However I don’t blame the TSA for having him on their watch list given the remarks he has made and his current fanatical beliefs. He, like the other zealots, give the true faith of Islam a bad name. To me, Cat Steven’s passed away a long time ago. I love the music, mourn the man.
