Cat Stevens, the untalented singer who turned to Islam, the religion of maggots, and changed his name to "Yusuf Islam" (Arabic for "Asshole of Islam"), has now sung a song to raise money to aid Hamas and other Islamic assholes after Israel kicked their asses in Gaza.
Yusuf Islam, formerly Cat Stevens, releases song for Gaza
JERUSALEM (AFP) – Singer-songwriter Yusuf Islam, formerly known as Cat Stevens, released on Sunday a charity song whose proceeds will go towards assisting Palestinians in the war-ravaged Gaza Strip.
The new recording of the song 'The day the world gets round', originally recorded by George Harrison, features Yusuf on vocals and Klaus Voorman, known to many as the fifth Beatle, on bass.
The song can be dowloaded online at different rates and its proceeds will go towards the United Nations Relief and Works Agency and Save the Children to aid children and families in the Gaza Strip, UNRWA said in a statement.
Yusuf said on his website he hoped the recording will "help remind people of the immense legacy of love, peace and happiness we can share when we get round to looking at mankind's futile wars and prejudices."
As Cat Stevens, Islam, now 59, recorded several major hits in the late 1960s and 1970s. He converted to Islam at the height of his fame in 1977, devoting himself to education and philanthropy. [Making sure to sell a religion of maggots to the masses - that kind of education? And philanthropy! Raise money for terrorists! - Ed.]
Israel's 22-day offensive in the Hamas-ruled territory, which ended on January 18, killed more than 1,300 Palestinians, including hundreds of women and children, medics say. It also left widespread destruction.
Here is a bit of Scumbag Islam's new song (Sing along if you can!):
The sky went boom, the tanks did shake
They dropped bombs on our homes
The earth started to quake
Oh, dear Hamas, stand by you we will
We will sacrifice and become a martyr
If that doesn't work
at least we still have Jimmy Carter
Israel must leave, they must take back their troops
But leave us some food - all we have is Froot Loops
Muslim children huddled as the hour passes
But they don't have bombs strapped to their asses
Rockets and bombs and shields of wood
We would send our mothers to die if we could
Those evil Israelis, they left so many Muslims dead
And now all we can do is chop off someone's head
Why did the world not help them, say something more?
They treated us as if every Palestinian were a whore!
Free Gaza, Free Ga-za from these terrible lies
We have nothing to eat but donkeys and flies
Free Gaza, free Gaza, from terrible Israeli crimes
I would sing some more but with Islam nothing rhymes!

According to the American Left, George W. Bush is to blame for everything that has gone bad in America. Bad economy? George W. Bush. Bad wars? George W. Bush. War won in Iraq? The military. No terrorist attack since 9/11? The CIA must be doing a damn good job.
Now that their man, The Clown™ Obama, is about to take over, the Left is girding up to blame everything bad under him to...George W. Bush.
Paul Slugman, the Failed Marxist Loon (FML) "economist," says that unemployment. now at 7.2%, could rise to 8.4% in 2010, just when the Downercrats are running for re-election. Yet, who would be to blame for this? Why, George W. Bush, of course! Because the Left never does anything wrong!
A bit more information to go with my post on stimulus: forecasters surveyed by the WSJ predict, on average, that unemployment will reach 8.1 percent by end 2009 and peak at 8.4% — that is, it will keep rising into 2010. That’s a forecast of what will happen with the stimulus plan, not of what would happen absent stimulus, which would presumably be considerably worse.
Two points: 1. This suggests that the consensus is at least as grim as the scenario I laid out 2. This looks to me like an economy that could easily be spun by conservatives as a failure of Obama’s policies.
The Left is already bracing everyone for their 2010 message: "So what if unemployment has gone way up under Obama. It's not his fault!"
