    Well surprise while the regular daily news summary is posted why not a "Dictatorship of Covid 19" special unplugged......

    Why I converted to Islam – Roman Catholic priestPublished on The autobiography of a Roman Catholic priest, Idris Tawfiq, who became a Muslim about 15 years ago, has emerged online. Tawfiq was reported to have died after a period of illness on February 3, 2016 in the United Kingdom, UK but before his death, he had written his experience on how he converted to the ‘religion of peace.’ Although the reason for releasing this on the same day, one year after he died cannot be ascertained, ‘AboutIslam’ is reporting that until his death, he was head of religious education in...

    The imminent release of “Trouble No More” -- the latest installment of Bob Dylan’s Bootleg Series; this one covers his controversial 1979-81 “Christian period” -- recalls the long-gone age of high-profile rock star conversions.Dylan became a Christian, George Harrison dived into Krishna consciousness, and Cat Stevens embraced Islam, and each demonstrated, yet again, that Leftist dogma is false. The content of one’s religious beliefs does matter, and influences those who take their religions seriously.Both Harrison and Dylan were widely criticized for their sanctimony. Reviewing Harrison’s 1973 album “Living in the Material World” in New Musical Express, Tony Tyler called the...

    Saudi Arabia has summoned the Czech ambassador over a coming translation of Salman Rushdie’s “The Satanic Verses.” A Saudi Foreign Ministry official said the ambassador was asked Friday to censor the coming Czech translation because the book “distorts the true religion of Islam.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity as he wasn’t authorized to speak to journalists. …

    New Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Cat Stevens is taking the "Peace Train" back on the road. He announced yesterday that he'll do a six-city concert tour in North America this December, his first series of shows in the US since 1976. His conversion to Islam followed, putting his music career on hold for a quarter-century. Stevens, who also is releasing a blues album on Oct. 27 produced by Rick Rubin and titled Tell 'Em I'm Gone, is using that stage name along with Yusuf, the name he took when he converted. The performer of 1970s-era hits "Wild...

    Today, the 2014 inductees to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame were announced. Among those being inducted were KISS, Hall & Oates, Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, and Linda Ronstadt. However, one inductee just ruined the whole thing for me: Cat Stevens, he prefers to be known now...Yusef Islam. How could the RRHOF make such a grievous error? Do they not know that the evil cult that he supports who have them all executed for the very thing that they personify?

    The United Nations has designated today as the International Day of Peace. The war drums pounded out quite a cacophony, earlier this month. But in the end, the Peace Train was louder. Thanks to us. The airwaves were rife this month with elected officials, think-tank analysts, retired generals, overpaid pundits and other bloviators telling us what they thought what we needed to think. But their voices faded, as ours grew louder. Listen: "Peace. Peace. Peace. Peace. Peace." We prevented a war between the United States and Syria. I made sure that our voices were heard. I said the things that...

    Jon Stewart's Rally for Sanity yesterday featured Yusuf Islam aka Cat Stevens singing "Peace Train". Islam/Stevens previously showed his commitment to peace and sanity by saying that death was the appropriate punishment for Salman Rushdie's "blasphemy". He has tried to wiggle out of it and issued all kinds of denials. But here is what he said (SOURCE: to Geoffrey Robertson QC in 1989. (Video here: Robertson: You don't think that this man deserves to die? Y. Islam: Who, Salman Rushdie? Robertson: Yes. Y. Islam: Yes, yes. Robertson: And do you have a duty to be his executioner?

Mediate has the video of Yusuf Islam’s appearance, as well as a bit of his background: The inclusion of Yusuf Islam in the Rally to Restore Sanity...

    CNN: You mean you're not dangerous? Yusuf: No! Touch me! (laughs) It was upsetting for a lot more people than myself. And you know, I'm here now (in the United States), so things are kind of working themselves out. But there's a new administration, a new president, and it's a great new day. CNN: Obama seems to be reaching out to people of all faiths around the world. Yusuf: I think a person like Obama has some kind of faith in his special role that he has to perform. And that role -- if not prophetic -- it's a divine...

    Cat Stevens has said that he believes that Coldplay's hit 'Viva La Vida' is a take-off of his own song, 'Foreigner Suite'. Coldplay recently denied accusations by guitarist Joe Satriani, who claims that the band ripped him off for the song – but Stevens has since told The Sun that it's he who the band had been taking inspiration from. "There's been this argument about Coldplay stealing this melody from Joe Satriani," he said. "But, if you listen to it, it's mine! It's the [1973 song] 'Foreigner Suite', it is!" Stevens did not suggest that he would take legal action...
