Michael Jackson learning Arabic?

Somebody played me a song allegedly by Michael Jackson in which he is praising Allah in Arabic with some pretty good pronunciation. I understand the man is now in Bahrain but is this true? The way he was singing sounded an awful lot like somebody who is looking into becoming Muslim. Very very strange hearing that is all I can say.

its funny

in hebrew we always say BeEzrat HaShem and Imm Yirtzeh HaShem which are a bit like Insha Alla and we always find it caused us to smile warmly when we hear israeli non jews speaking those words that have been heard only off the lips of jews for millenia..

lirun, i don't think it's funny - i think it's sad, that "izraeli" nonjews had a foreign language forced upon them and they've lost their mother tongue beause of military occupation.

I don't think it's very funny either.

thats bullshit

you go to every arab town in israel and visit their schools and you'll find they teach in arabic and hebrew to third generation israeli arabs remains a second language..

stop making up stories.. its boring.. and its unhelpful
