I want to say that it has become so consistent with every manifestation with in social life with which we are familiar to say that loosers or moderately speaking, people who believed that they (and nobody else) will always continue to be number one tend to turn at themselves ( talk of cutting their noses to spite their faces!).
Could this be revenge or what? How can one explain the following African Americans greats - Moh'med Ali, Mike Tyson (Malik? ) and this Jackson brothers hula?

Islam is a good religion and deserves respect. If they wished to convert, the whole world is a space for them. It should be nobody's business. Methinks that conversion always leave an awesome sense of spiritualism on the convert and not showmanship of the sort that the two Jacksons -Jamaine & Michael seem to be bringing into it. My concern is that they become better individuals. We need to be seeing Michael's face. Great muslim men (old and now) do not cover their faces.
Take this to the man in the mirror.
