Cat Stevens Islam

Charles is on the job as usual.

The lazy AP says this (and you can hear them laughing at the Bush Administration as they type):

Officials had no details about why the peace activist might be considered a risk to the United States.

Why would a "peace" activist give thousands of dollars to Hamas?

Why do I have to "go" to Scotland to read this?

[I]n July 2000, Stevens was denied entry to Israel amid reports that he had donated tens of thousands of dollars to the Islamic terrorist group, Hamas.

In a statement released by his record label Universal Music at the time, he said: “I want to make sure that people are aware that I’ve never ever knowingly supported any terrorist groups – past, present or future.”

Whether he did or not, shouldn't we at least know that Israel prevented his entry, and Why?


Yusuf "Cat 'Peace Train' Stevens" Islam is "alleged he gave thousands to the militant Palestinian group Hamas, and to the son of blind cleric Omar Abdel Rachman who was believed to have masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center bombing."

As Charles points out:

ABC News says Rachman was “believed” to have masterminded the 1993 WTC bombing—but, of course, he was convicted of it.

Charles also has more biased reporting [Ed. I'm Shocked!] from the "Legacy Media."


More -- third paragraph is the must read paragraph.

BUT, if in fact the government has good cause to believe that Islam (the former singer, not the religion) has contributed money to Hamas and to blind sheik [Paragraphs 10 and 11 - Ed.] Omar Abdel-Rahman (who was convicted for the 1993 World Trade Center bombing), then he is in fact a "terror threat" because terror is not possible without funding, and those who fund and thereby enable terror are just as guilty as those who carry out the actual acts.
