The King of Pop left the Kingdom Hall for the Kaaba!

Did you know that Michael Jackson recently converted to the “peaceful religion of Islam”?

Michael Joseph Jackson was born August 29, 1958, as the seventh child of the Jackson family. He began his professional music career at the age of 11 as a member of “The Jackson 5” and began a solo career in 1971 while still he was still a member of the group.

He was born in Gary, Indiana (an industrial suburb of Chicago, Illinois) to a working-class family. The son of Joseph Walter “Joe” and Katherine Esther, he was the seventh of nine children. His siblings were Rebbie, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, La Toya, Marlon, Randy and Janet. Jackson was raised as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses by his devout mother.

Well, guess what? The King of Pop left the Kingdom Hall for the Kaaba!

Michael’s intentions to convert to Islam were reported as far back as November 2005 in a report released on the website of the Arab-Israeli newspaper, Panorama. The report was based on information elicited from sources in Bahrain. At that time Jackson had officially announced that he had been following the five tenets of Islam and intended to convert to Islam.

Jackson had also announced he was moving to Bahrain and had purchased some real-estate on an artificial island there. Jackson said he intended on moving all his assets and his studio from the U.S. to Bahrain, and had expressed that this way he would be rid of his various legal troubles. His desire was to enjoy the kind of “freedom” he says he doesn’t have in America. The singer said he felt Islam was the closest religion to his personal beliefs. – The World’s No 1 Pop Music Star Michael Jackson had transformed to Islam changing his name Meekaeel.

Jermaine Jackson, Michael Jackson’s brother has also converted to Islam. “There you are protected [from parents’ lawsuits]”, he said.

As a matter of fact, Michael Jackson converted to Islam on the very eve of child-molestation charges being filed against him, reports the New York Post.

You may remember that in 1993, Michael Jackson was accused of child sexual abuse by Evan Chandler, on behalf of his then-13-year-old child, Jordan Chandler. Jackson and Jordan had become friends in May 1992, to the father’s disapproval and concern. The friendship became well known, as the tabloid media reported that Jackson became a member of the Chandler family unit. Under the influence of a controversial sedative administered by Evan Chandler, his son said that Jackson had touched his penis. Evan Chandler was tape-recorded threatening to damage the singer’s music career, and engaged Jackson in unsuccessful negotiations to resolve the issue with a financial settlement. Jordan Chandler then told a psychiatrist and later police that he and Jackson had engaged in acts of kissing, masturbation, and oral sex, as well as giving a description of what he alleges were the singer’s genitals.

In April of 2004, the grand jury returned an indictment charging 46-year-old Michael Jackson with child molestation and a conspiracy count alleging child abduction, false imprisonment and extortion. The indictment also included four counts of lewd acts involving a minor child, one count involving an attempted lewd act upon a child and four counts of administering an intoxicating agent.

So why would Islam be the closest religion to his personal beliefs? Maybe because Islam founder was also a child molester? The mere thought of an old man becoming aroused by a child is one of the most disturbing thoughts that make me cringe as it reminds me of pedophilia and the most despicable people. It is equally difficult to accept that the Muhammad married Aisha when she was 6-years-old and consummated his marriage with her when she was 9. He was then, 54 years old.

Anyway, it’s only been a few months since Jack converted to Islam and already he’s begun to threaten others with violence and “bloodshed.” “Claim: Jacko’s Rep Threatened Harm from Nation of Islam,” from Fox News, March 24:

Last week, Julien and his partner Martin Nolan entered affidavits into Los Angeles Superior Court claiming that an associate of Jackson’s suggested they were in danger from the Nation of Islam if they didn’t stop the auction scheduled for Los Angeles next month.

Jackson’s representative, James R. Weller, Julien says, met with him and Nolan on February 9, 2009 and threatened him with reciprocity from the Nation of Islam. For most of 2004, Jackson was managed by Leonard Muhammad, son in law of Louis Farrakhan. His security was provided by the NOI as well throughout his 2005 trial for child molestation.

“During the meeting, Weller told Martin and me that our lives would be in danger if we did not postpone the auction. Weller said if we refused to postpone it, we would be in danger from “Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam; those people are very protective of Michael.”</em>

Julien’s statement continues: “He told us that Dr. Tohme and Michael Jackson wanted to give the message to us that our lives are at stake and there will be bloodshed.”…

Oh my, I thought Islam was a peaceful religion? Maybe I was wrong? – Lilo

    Arab world mourns Michael Jackson
    AP, Jun 27, 2009 3:06 pm PDT

    A Bahraini royal mourned him publicly, young Lebanese held a candlelight tribute, Egyptian musicians hailed him as an inspiration.Beyond his global reach, Michael Jackson held a special place in the Muslim world, as one of the first major Western entertainers to break through cultural barriers in the 1980s.

    Some made a connection with the pop icon because of rumors, never substantiated, that he had converted to Islam. Others embraced him as one of their own after he sought refuge in the Gulf emirate of Bahrain in 2005, following a bruising trial on child molestation charges in the U.S.
    “God have mercy on him. He was a Bahraini. He lived with us,” said Jassim Ali, 35, shopping for Jackson CDs on Saturday in a music store in the capital, Manama.

    Jackson only spent a year in the emirate, as a guest of Sheik Abdulla bin Hamad Isa Al Khalifa, a son of Bahrain’s king and an aspiring songwriter who had befriended the entertainer. Jackson kept a low profile there, largely staying close to his host.

    After Jackson’s departure, the sheik sued Jackson for $7 million, saying he had failed to fulfill a joint music venture, but the two settled in November, with terms not disclosed.

    The sheik said Saturday, in a statement in the Gulf Daily News, that “the world has lost a giant in the music industry.”

    “We are all very saddened by that,” Al Khalifa said in comments confirmed by his spokesman.

    Across the Arab world, the tributes to Jackson, who died Thursday, mirrored those elsewhere around the globe, though some argued the singer had a special appeal in the region.

    “Religion is a big part of identity in this part of the world, and the idea he became Muslim boosted his popularity,” said Egyptian cultural critic Tarek el-Shinnawi.

    The conversion rumors were fueled, in parts, by comments by Jackson’s brother, Jermaine, a convert to Islam, who has said his brother showed interest in the faith. In November, a British tabloid claimed Michael Jackson converted at a friend’s home in Los Angeles.

    The Jackson brothers were raised as Jehovah’s Witnesses.

    Others simply loved Michael Jackson for his music. At his peak, in the 1980s, a time without Internet and satellite TV, the Arab world was more shielded from Western pop culture. Jackson was one of the few successful crossover artists.

    In Egypt, keyboarder and music distributor Fady Badr traveled to Alexandria to take a few days off work to come to terms with the pop star’s death.

    “He’s the reason I got into this business,” said 28-year old Badr. “Everything he did was new, he had such a power of voice and style; this industry would wait for his new ideas to get us inspired.”
    A manager of the Cairo Jazz Club, Shady Hamza, said that he was flooded by calls from local bands and musicians to help arrange a tribute night to the singer.

    “I feel like I lost a brother,” said Hamza, 30. “He turned so many of us into the whole music thing — for a lot of musicians, Michael Jackson was their first encounter.”

    In Lebanon, about 100 young fans lit candles and sang along to his songs in a downtown street lined with bars and restaurants. A few tried to moon walk while others cheered.

    Qays al Zu’bi, a Bahraini lawyer who said he helped Jackson with his finances when he lived in the emirate, said the singer had qualities about him that endeared him to people in the region, including his close relationship with his children and his vision.

    “He had an aura about him,” said the lawyer. “Despite the scandal in the United States, I saw mothers at the lobby of his hotel who brought their children to introduce them to Michael Jackson.”
