MECCA (FMLiveWire) - In a moving ceremony here on Friday, Michael Jackson, Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton and Madonna converted to Islam, All wore the abaya, the traditional Arab women's veil, making it difficult to tell them apart.
Jackson, 50, had been raised as a Jehovah's Witness, but his family and friends convinced him to become a Moslem in order to do God's work. Jackson in turn convinced Cyrus, Hilton and Madonna to convert along with him, so they flew to Saudi Arabia together to have it done right.
Mecca's chief imam led the four through the shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of faith and belief.
"I'm a better person now that I have embraced Islam," said Jackson after the ceremony, still wearing a veil.
Cyrus and Hilton agreed, saying they felt "really fabulous" to be Islamic.
Michael Jackson's new Islamic name is Mikaeel. Miley Cyrus is now Mileecyrush, Paris Hilton's new name is Pareetonussta and Madonna's new name is Fatimadonnaronna.
Madonna said she "was tired" of being a "wacko kabbalist" anyway and that the Moslem religion will help her cope with her divorce from Guy Ritchie.
Miley Cyrus said that she would soon be posing nude with Paris Hilton for Vanity Fair, but that they would wear veils "in a proper and prudent Islamic manner."
"I'm not going to be prancing around on stage like some kind of irreligious bimbo anymore," added Madonna. "I have found something that gives me inner strength and peace."
The four signed a declaration that they would now fight for Palestinian rights and freedoms and the return of the land that has been stolen from the Arab people.
Al-Qaeda warmly welcomed the conversion of Jackson and the other celebrities into their faith and are confident that these high profile conversions will prove to be the turning point whereby millions of young Americans, already disillusioned by the economic crisis that is sapping Americas confidence, will turn to the Koran for inspiration.
Intelligence sources agree that Al Qaeda is "very interested" in attracting disaffected Americans into their ranks.
