Oliver Stone’s Son Converts to Islam: The “Islamization” of Hollywood Continues?

Islamophobes are all upset that Oliver Stone’s son Sean Stone converted to Islam.

For some reason the Islamophobes are hurt by this, perhaps they believe that Hollywood is about to be overtaken by Muslims or that it is a symbol of the Leftist-Muslamic axis of evil. First it was Liam Neeson and now Oliver Stone’s director son!:

Oliver Stone’s Son Converts to Islam in Iran

Tehran, Iran (CNN) – The son of Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone converted to Islam in a ceremony in central Iran, a national news agency reported.

Sean Stone became a Shiite Muslim in the city of Esfahan Tuesday and chose Ali as his new Islamic name, the semi-official Fars News Agency reported.

“The conversion to Islam is not abandoning Christianity or Judaism, which I was born with,” Stone told Fars News Agency. “It means I have accepted Mohammad and other prophets.”

He did not say why he converted.

Stone, 27, is also a filmmaker and has collaborated on his father’s projects. His father is Jewish and his mother, Christian.

Oliver Stone directed “Platoon,” “Born on the Fourth of July” and “JFK.”

  1. Well, that makes sense since Hollywood is a bastion of rampant christianity. All those do-gooders and selfless people and whatnot.

  2. That’s ridiculous.

  3. I wouldn’t worry too much. It seems everything bothers those that are phobic whether it is homophobia, or islamophobia.

  4. His choice….but maybe he is lacking something,in a capitalistic society like the US…

  5. I have a great fear of the Christian Taliban taking over this country.

  6. Aren’t these the same people who said Hollywood had been taken over by Jews? They’re just exchanging one bigotry for another.

  7. O dear,,thats interestin :)

  8. I worry alittle for him because new converts “sometimes” are easy targets for extremism, I’m praying that he approaches it soberly

  9. I thought religious freedom was sorta the whole point of the American Revolution. (this comment made by a rabbi who wishes everyone enlightenment as they navigate their spiritual quests)

  10. laim neeson never said he was converting tho

  11. He “converted” from nothing. He had a hunger for God and having one Jewish parent and one Christian parent assured he was raised with no firm religious belief. So he went half-way around the world and found God. At least it’s the same God of Abraham, not Buddhism.

  12. Alhumdulilah

  13. Thank You Maurice

  14. “Shiite Muslim” =NOT ISLAM! Please!

  15. Following the likes of Cat Stevens.

  16. One should fear psychotic killers who use any religion to justify murder. Religion doesn’t kill people; people do. If that is his calling, more power to him. I fully agree with Maurice Harris.

  17. @ Raees Romero , could you explain why not ?

  18. Hollywood has been taken over by…people with open minds.

  19. But those dumb asses don’t like Oliver Stone anyway so what’s the problem?

  20. who gives a rats ass this is no ones business

  21. @Raees Romero Shiites ARE muslims as well:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Azhar_Shia_Fatwa

  22. His prerogative and not really their business. Why can’t people just leave each other alone ? I have a cousin who is Muslim. He’s awesome. & I am very proud of him.

  23. Liam Neeson is Muslim? Wow! This is pretty cool. It seems a lot of famous people have become Muslim in the last few years.

  24. Diane Torres, a simple google search “Liam Neeson Muslim” will reveal almost 200,000 links in which Neeson said (after shooting his new movie “The Grey”) that he may become Muslim because the call to prayer got “into his spirit”.

  25. Mashallah.
    That’s a nice background he has too, Christian & Jewish parents.

  26. Religion is a choice. No religion over another in the USA. Religion is not better than non- religion. Non- religion is not better than religion. This is the legal basis of the,” Establishment Clause” in the first Amendment of the Bill of Rights.
    There is no state religion in the USA.

  27. Better that than Scientology!

  28. Growth of Islam scares them, and I don’t understand why. When Europe was being ‘Christanizationed’ we had blood shed like no other, crusades and inquisitions. Islam spread and we had universities and institutes for scientific and religious knowledge. When Islam flourished we made leaps and bounds in technology and sciences. When Chrsitianity ‘flourished’ it was thronged into the Dark Ages, literally, and only was able to survive when it started to make it’s religion less important in it’s societies.

  29. AllAh Akbar :) The same happened when Omar Ebn el K’atab or any of the “Koraish” celebrities converted to Islam , “Kofar” just got upset.

  30. I sometimes wonder if anyone in Hollywood has a brain. There is a good reason they call it Hollyweird.

    The Islamophiles can be so proud of this useful idiot.

  31. Islam is the only faith of the three that constantly thanks god, and they don’t want that. they want a world were your god is the corporation that gives you these worthless meaningless things , that really never fill you like faith can. Islam is and always will be the one and only true religion iinsha allah.

  32. I guess Spencer and Geller will now have to form yet another hate group called SIOH (Stop the Islamization of Hollywood)! LOL.

  33. What happened to all that freedom of religion belief?

  34. @Susan Gaar. It seems like some of these right wing kooks believe in religious freedom insofar as it applies to their religion. If it applies to someone elses religion, or someone’s right to be protected from religion at all, all of a sudden they’re screaming about how there is a “war against religion.”

  35. Wai-wai-wai-waitaminute here. I could care less if Oliver Stone’s kid converted. What’s really wrong is this – they let Oliver Stone breed?
    EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!

  36. Yeah, he has been smoking too much pot, it fucks up the brain.

  37. this is no different than when celebrities ‘converted’ to forms of Judaism (the kabaala) Buddism or explored Tibetan faiths back in the 90’s. The interesting thing to me is that people associate Islam (because it’s relatively more strict in practice) with being closed off to other religions. It does insist that Mohammed is the only prophet, yet He did say in the article that he’s accepted other prophets too, which seems contrary to what all my Muslim friends say is ‘kosher’. (anyone here care to comment on this aspect?) My prediction is that these converts have not joined the faith in quite the same sense that many Muslims would recognize as their style of faith. (Maybe even not qualifying as true faith to certain subscribers, which is also nothing new when celebrities go religious.) Interesting.

  38. There are many paths to God. No one of them is the ‘right’ way, and it doesn’t matter which one you choose, as long as you get there.

  39. LOL

  40. If his quote, “not abandoning Christianity or Judaism” means anything at all, it only illustrates his lack of understanding of the term ‘conversion’.

    I can well understand his search for God, given his background and agreeing with Pam, but he does seem to have missed a few middle school classes in English.

    Each of the religions, Christianity, Judaism and the Muslim faith, look to the same God, Father of us all, but each follows a completely different path and by adhering to one, you most definitely leave the others behind.

  41. Lucas Fahey, Prophet Mohamad (s) is not the only prophet according to Islam but the last prophet , the seal of the prophets. (Holy Quran, 33:40) … and that certain subscriber you have mentioned is not only ignorant to label shiite Muslims non Muslims but arrogant as well… Shiites believe in Allah (sob7anaho wa ta3ala) like any other Muslims, recognize the same prophets, follow the teachings of prophet Mohamad (s) , have the same Holy Book, the Quran like any other Muslims. Today there are so many ways to learn about basically anything that crosses our minds yet many choose to remain ignorant. Peace be upon you all ! <3

  42. Raees Romero, which determines a person is Muslim or not is not Sunni or Shia. However, he considered Muslims as long as he acknowledges Allah as God, Muhammad as a messenger and practice the teachings of the Quran.

  43. Shia,shiism,shiite is not Islam, and alot of them use unity,kalimah tayyibiya,etc. as a “smokescreen” for their corrupted versions of aqeeda(belief) such as their hatred of sahaba,12imam,self-mutilation,and the list goes on….which there is no proof from the Quran&Sunnah,speaking of which, Quran& authentic(sahih) gives clear and undisputable proof and truth against all their innovations and corrupted beliefs, all i can do is make dua that Allah(swt) guides them to a true understanding of deen(Islam) and guide them! Period!

  44. his faith is his own business

  45. Hadiths(after sahih)above

  46. you assume just because he’s from hollywood he has to be an idiot? That hardly seems fair. I admire the dedication he’s shown, no matter what his belief. To travel to the other side of the world for his beliefs shows that he has sensed a true calling, especially as it was only on Iranian media, precluding some attempt at a publicity ploy

  47. @ Ahmed Mohamed–I am glad that you are happy with your religion. However,I find your statement that “Islam is and always will be the one and only true religion” a bit arrogant

  48. As a Buddhist once said ” The are many paths to God. Just because we are not on the same one doesn’t mean we got lost.”

  49. Some said islam, some budha, blah blah bla ya yayya,,

  52. I will attack the Christian statement

  53. Shia are muslims just the same as Sunni

  55. @ Nata Loveyou–No need to be snarky. I wasn’t saying Buddhism is any better than Islam or any other religion. I was merely pointing out that all paths to God are equal. No one religion has a monopoly on God.

  59. I think one of the ironies of the current wave of Islamophobia is that it has created some ‘blowback’ against the Islamophobes – it has led to some more thoughtful Americans finding out more about Islam and discovering that it has a lot to offer.

  65. “Islam spread and we had universities and institutes for scientific and religious knowledge. When Islam flourished we made leaps and bounds in technology and sciences”. Leaps and bounds in technology and sciences? Sylvia Thompson, certainly you must realize this is only someone’s delusion.
