Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens) at Rally to Restore Sanity And/or Fear Garners Controversy

Yusuf Islam, formally Cat Stevens, was on brought on by Stewart and the 'Sanity' part of the rally. He and Ozzy Osbourne battled it out over exactly what type of train we should be getting on (Peace vs Crazy). The O’Jays came out and brought everyone aboard the Love Train.

Video embedded below.

The problem is from Yusuf Islam's history. He came out in support for the assassination of Salman Rushdie in the form of a Islamic fatwa. Not very Sane. In the years since started saying that the comments were taken out of context, and then denied he had ever said it. You can see for yourself.
