Jumping the shark -- possibly two sharks?

From the UK Telegraph:
Michael Jackson 'to convert to Islam'
Michael Jackson could soon convert to Islam, according to his brother Jermaine.

The fallen pop star, who was acquitted of child abuse charges two years ago, has been reading Islamic books and developed an interest in the faith, his brother claims.

Jermaine, 52, became a Muslim in 1989 and said he thought it "most probable" that Michael, 48, would follow him.

"When I came back from Mecca I got him a lot of books and he asked me lots of things about my religion and I told him that it's peaceful and beautiful," he told The Muslim News, a monthly British Muslim newspaper.

"He read everything and he was proud of me that I found something that would give me inner strength and peace.

"I think it is most probable that Michael will convert to Islam."

He added: "He could do so much, just like I am trying to do. Michael and I and the word of God, we could do so much."
It would be interesting to see just how many self-absorbed "useful idiots" jump on this bandwagon and declare "Islam" to be the new "Black" (in terms of color of clothing and trendiness). It would be also wonderful to see how the hard-line Mullah's would reconcile this with their theocratic practices. Posted by DaveH at February 24, 2007 11:07 AM
