Following in the footsteps of Yusuf Islam ..


Michael Jackson, , the 50-year-old pop star "changed his is name to Mikaeel, pledged allegiance to the Koran at a friend's house in Los Angeles. An Imam was summoned from a nearby mosque to hold the shahada, the declaration of belief in Allah and Mohammed's prophecy. " (source)

Not surprisingly, Al-Qaeda welcomes Michael Jacksons conversion to Islam

Initial reports are already filtering through that Al-Qaeda has warmly welcomed Michael Jackson into their faith and are confident that this high profile conversion will prove to be the turning point whereby millions of young Americans, already disillusioned by the economic crisis that is sapping Americas confidence will turn to the Koran for inspiration. Sources close to Al Qaeda leadership are said to have have confirmed the open satisfaction of senior figures including Deputy Ayman Al-Zawahiri regarding the pop star's conversion, according to some Pakistani news services.

It is claimed that the Al Qaeda leadership were already most surprised by the fact that Americans were prepared to vote in as President a candidate with some recent Muslim heritage, even if the President-elect is a practising Christian. This did not of this stop Ayman Al-Zawahiri referring to Obama as a ‘house negro' recently, although Malcolm X was lavishly praised within the same speech he made the rather controversial comment in. Now with this latest celebrity conversion Al-Qaeda are hopeful that the west is finally moving religiously towards Mecca.

Generally, intelligence sources agree that Al Qaeda is very interested in attracting disaffected African-Americans into the fold and the recent criticisms of Obama were very much in line with this aim. Obama is unlikely to solve all the problems that exist within Africa-American communities and might not be seen as acting sufficiently in the interests of fellow Black Americans by some. Most observers agree that Jackson's conversion amidst his financial troubles is something that Al Qaeda would welcome. Interestingly Jackson is off to London today to dispute a large debt supposedly owed by him to a Bahrani prince. Perhaps his new found faith will soften the heart of his alleged creditor?
