Muslim Mike Tyson goes to Mecca
FORMER boxing champion Mike Tyson, who converted to Islam while in jail in the 1990s, is visiting the Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina on pilgrimage.If he had committed rape in that misogynist society, it's a given that the victim would have suffered while he would have gotten away with his crime. Why doesn't he just remain in Saudi Arabia and leave the USA with one less vile criminal for all we care?
Tyson, who was world heavyweight champion from 1986 to 1990, arrived on Friday in Medina with the Canadian Dawa Association for the umrah, or minor pilgrimage, the newspaper Okaz said.
It goes without saying that he's embarrassed a lot of pop culture stuff he appeared in during the 1980s, including at least one Nintendo game he appeared in, which I won't ever be making an official post about on my game blog. I can see why Capcom usually depicted their Balrog character in the Street Fighter games as a villain, assuming he's meant to be based on that monstrosity.
