Here is where I could go off on the idiots out there (and some here in myLot) with all their crap about 'Muslims are evil' and all that junk, but I won't. Let them have their narrow minds. Cat Stevens converted to Islam 40 years ago, taking the name Yusuf Islam, and gave up his musical career for many years, although he has since returned to recording 'pop' music. Not all Muslims want to kill everyone else, regardless of what some people may want to believe. Cat Stevens - Teaser and the Firecat

Morning Has Broken was my favorite song way back when.It was only some years back when I learned Cat Stevens converted to Islam For reasons unknown, I simply felt not good about it. He could have kept the faith. Muhammad Ali, too. He was Cassius Clay, and because he didn't want to be drafted to Vietnam, he turned Muslim. Sad The craft remains. The music is soothing. The boxing is an exciting sport. I don't recommend boxing though.
@JolietJake Cat Stevens was a Christian.

Hey where's the music? That was strange just commented and there was no photo and no music. Went back to discussions and there it was. I love Cat Stevens and many of his earlier songs. The saying should be make music, rock on and don't make war.

Remember, folks, the KKK claims to be a Christian group. Doesn't make them Christian. By the same token, being a Muslim doesn't make you a terrorist (and being a terrorist doesn't make you a Muslim -- right, Timothy McVeigh?). I've seen Richard Thompson, who's a Muslim, twice -- and he's never killed any concertgoer (except figuratively with his great music). I'm elated that the R&R HofF didn't see things that way and inducted Cat Stevens for his music. And I love "Peace Train."

It's not just "not all Muslims", it's the majority of Muslims who don't want to kill, just the same as the majority of people in general don't want to kill, because no matter what anyone thinks, we're all just people regardless of religion. I had a teacher at secondary school who was always going on about Cat Stevens, he was obsessed!

I totally agree with you on this. Those people with those closed minds are stupid and ignorant. Stereotyping is horrible for any race or religion. And Cat Stevens is cool. I was never a big fan but he has a few songs I like. We need a diverse country.
