    Has Cat Stevens (Yusuf) ever renounced his call for Rushdie's death?

    ^ I can't definitively recall, but it soured me forever on him.

    If this attacker turns out to be some kind of jihadist, I want him in solitary for the next 50 years.

    I dislike all religion, but I really loathe Islam.
