New York Times Covers Up Islam Reference in Jermaine Jackson Farewell to Michael Jackson

As media outlets have reported, Jermaine Jackson had the following farewell message to his late brother, Michael Jackson: "May Allah be with you always." Watch for yourself here.

But strangely, the NY Times omits the "Allah" reference altogether and instead reports that Jermaine said, "May our love be with you always." Ah, the New York Times -- what would we do without The Paper of Record?

And, I'm not holding my breath, but let's see if any of the tributes for this child-molesting, drug-abusing psychopath mention that he was also a raving anti-Semite, who had this to say about Jews in 2003: "They suck... they're like leeches... It's a conspiracy. The Jews do it on purpose." Not to mention Jackson's 1995 song They Don't Care About Us, which contained the following anti-Semitic slurs: "Jew me, sue me, everybody do me/ Kick me, kike me, don't you black or white me."

No wonder Michael Jackson converted to Islam in his later years and also became affiliated with the Nation of Islam.

He was a great musician, but this creep will not be missed.

UPDATE: See here. The New York Times admits its error.

Miss, you are entitled your opinion. And my opinion is that your opinion is one of ignorance and hate. Good job. Have a nice life.

Thank you for your honest comments. I had been feeling a little remiss because, for the life of me, I just cannot drum any sympathy for the guy or for his family.

Best regards,

Michael Jackson had a sadistic, abusive father and a masochistic, enabling mother. Poor child was beaten all the way to the bank. As a result he never grew up, and he never developed brakes on his addictions. HOWEVER, at some point in all our lives, CRAZY BECOMES A CHOICE. I believe MJ chose to be like his father on stage and like his mother off stage. I believe he was schizo. He knew crazy sells records. His Man in the Mirror never changed. I believe he was a narcissist and could justify doing whatever he wanted. And his family just said "yes." I hope Debbie Rowe gets all three kids. Over MJ's bed was a painting of The Last Supper, in which HE was Jesus...and Abe Lincoln, JFK, Einstein, Elvis and others were his disciples. What hubris. RIP Michael. You were a great, great entertainer, but you were not God, and none of those guys were your disciples. Hopefully by now you've figured that out. PS Thanks for "In the Closet."
