He later began teaching and actively promoting Islam worldwide, founding a Muslim school in 1983.

The former peformer also made headlines when he supported the death sentence issued by Iran against author Salman Rushdie."

I guess the pious Muslim's money ran out so that he goes against the orthodox Muslim's teaching;)

So Cat Stevens is saying the BBC tell lies?
We all know Mohammed gave his personal blessings for his followers to tell lies (Tequilya) so perhaps Cat is using Mohammed's blessing to, shall we say, distort the truth.

I read the book thanks to the Muslim outrage, and I actually found it harmless, and a story, but we all know Muslims only want to be outraged and to show their 'tolerant' religion off.

That is what Cat Stevens would like you to believe. Here is the truth that he cannot deny. He would kill Rushdie if he was in an Islamic state and he would love to go to a public burning of Rushdie.
Cat Stevens a peace loving hippy has been brainwashed by Islam into a murderous fanatic,.

And now he's gone back to singing because he needs the money... But I think it's more than that. He came out as an ambassador for islam, hopeing to convert by nostalga and song.

He used to be good, he's not any more, there is no such thing as a good muslim.
