Minister Ridiculed For Exposing Yusuf Islam

Australian Talk Show Host Jon Faine Gushes Over Islamofascist Yusuf Islam:

Utter Despicability: Yusuf Islam

What is it with Leftists and the utter contempt they have for our way of life?? Always sticking up for those that wish us harm??

  • Cat Stephens – advocating murder of an author in the name of islam.
  • A gushing 774 host Jon Faine thought the notion of Cat Stevens being attacked for hate-speech and supporting death threats so ludicrous that he brought on professional Taqiyya Muslim Waleed Aly to join in the mockery, which included the playing of Cat Stevens’ song Peace Train.
  • Jon Faine’s adoration of the Prophet Waleed Aly comes before anything. His sycophantic blubbering when Aly is around is truly sickening. Even when he argues with Aly he does it like a flirtatious girl.  Arch-dhimmitude in action, on our airwaves.

A Victorian state MP is lobbying to have musician Yusuf Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens, banned from Australia.

Islam is touring Australia next month but DLP upper house member Peter Kavanagh says the singer should be denied a visa because he claims he once supported a “fatwa” against author Salman Rushdie. More>>

Rumor has it that David Hicks  and Mamduh Habib will be his managers….(now that’s a joke…)

Andrew Bolt takes on the all to forgiving/forgetful loons:

If Cat Stevens didn’t say it, why has he censored it?

Last week Victorian DLP politician Peter Kavanagh earned a lot of ridicule, not least on ABC Melbourne 774, for histerribly unsophisticated attitude to Yusuf Islam, the Muslim singer once known as Cat Stevens:

Islam is touring Australia next month but DLP upper house member Peter Kavanagh says the singer should be denied a visa because he claims he once supported a “fatwa” against author Salman Rushdie.

Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini issued the religious decree calling for Muslims to kill Rushdie for alleged blasphemy in his novel The Satanic Verses in 1989.

“Cat Stevens seemed to support those threats against Mr Rushdie, he now says he was joking,” Mr Kavanagh said.

“But I think, before he comes into Australia, he should be required to say that he does not support threats against people for the expression of their opinions…”

Yes, he should be.  Because Yusuf Islam obviously lies and denies what he said then. Because he really believes  in The proof of the necessity of killing anyone who curses the Prophet or finds fault with him” check it out!

774 host Jon Faine thought the notion of Cat Stevens being attacked for hate-speech and supporting death threats so ludicrous that he brought on professional Islamo-spin meister  and taqiyya artist Waleed Aly to join in the mockery, which included the playing of Cat Stevens’ song Peace Train.

But he said it, here

And again:

But I’ve found one bit of tape that Stevens hasn’t yet managed to censor, and I’d like Faine to reconsider the ridicule he heaped on Kavanagh and to wonder at the mentality of a man who can speak on television of wanting Salman Rushdie burned or otherwise killed:

And, of course, repeated claims were made that anything Stevens had said about Rushdie was “out of context”.

Was it? The best way to judge what was said and its innocent context would be so see the video of Stevens making the alleged comments, but, oddly enough, Stevens has tried desperately to remove it from the public gaze, as you can see here and here.

One commenter nails it:

Coulter suggests that a lot of people on the left have thrown out historical and conservative ideas and as such have lost their moral compass.  They truly can’t judge for themselves what is wrong or right, and follow the church of “political correctness”.

This has helped me understand why the left will embrace the likes of David Hicks but despise our good soldiers trying to bring peace to a subjugated people. Why they love to scream about ‘losses’ in wars that may be just but unequivocally support the right to abortion. And then turn around and hold midnight vigils opposing the death penalty?

They do hate themselves and sadly are undoing the greatness of western civilisation with their blind love of the victimised Islamists. They make excuses, blame themselves, blame capitalism, and ignore the actions, words and threats of these people.

  1. On ABC “The Drum”, of all places, with link to archive of Yusuf on Geoffrey Robertson’s Hypothical – Hypotheticals-a-Satanic-Scenario (1989) with video of islam apparently agreeing that Rushdie deserved to die.

    Yusuf Islam, not Cat Stevens, defined a generation

    (Michael Gordon-Smith)

    [It was natural that he would be asked his opinion about Ayatollah Khomeini’s call and promise of reward for Salman Rushdie’s death. Yusuf agreed to join the panel of Geoffrey Robertson’s Hypothetical to discuss the issues on television.

    I watched the program when it was shown in Australia in October that year. I’m still dismayed by the memory:

    Geoffrey Robertson: You don’t think that this man deserves to die? Yusuf Islam: Who? Salman Rushdie? Geoffrey Robertson: Yes. Yusuf Islam: Yes, yes.

    Yusuf’s website includes a variety of clarifications and justifications for his comments about Mr Rushdie on that program and elsewhere:

    – he never called for Rushdie’s death or supported the fatwa;
    – his remarks in the Hypothetical were an attempt to lighten the moment and raise a smile, British dry humour; and
    – he’s been tricked, misquoted and misinterpreted by the media.]

    [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?
    Y. Islam: Uh, no, not necessarily, unless we were in an Islamic state and I was ordered by a judge or by the authority to carry out such an act – perhaps, yes.]

  3. I used to really like Cat Stevens’ music, but I threw my CDs away when he became Yusuf Islam.

    Anyway, I thought music was un-islamic!

  4. An ABC cleansing of conservatives

    Jon Faine has done a little of that “cleansing” of conservatives he once urged on the Herald Sun:

    Between 2007 and 2009 Andrew McIntyre occupied the right wing chair in the 774 ABC Melbourne studio for Friday’s Weekly Wrap segment on Jon Faine’s morning radio show. Liberty Sanger, Labor lawyer and wife of ALP Senator David Feeney, represented the Left…

    However, last December you could almost hear the pencils snap at the ABC when he strongly criticised Clive Hamilton during a segment on the Higgins byelection.

    McIntyre’s Hamilton critique might have been the final straw. The ABC withdrew the welcome mat for 2010 and replaced McIntyre with the decidedly milder Nick Maher of Gavin Anderson.

    Before his gig on the Weekly Wrap, McIntyre was a regular co-host on Faine’s Conversation Hour; and in that role also he was never backward in debunking leftist dogma. He returned to co-host one Conversation Hour this year, but hasn’t been heard on the station since.

    Scratch the surface of a lefty loon and you find a totalitarian despot.
