Lauren Booth’s (Con)Version
It seems every time antisemite Lauren Booth tells the story of how she came to convert to Islam, she changes it.
Version 1: She decided to become a Muslim after visiting the shrine of Fatima al-Masumeh in the city of Qom. She sat down, felt a shot of “spiritual morphine, just absolute bliss and joy” and decided to convert to Islam immediately after returning to Britain.
Version 2: Her key moment in deciding to convert was “the strong feeling of the beauty of the creation of trees by Allah” after “she took a walk in the woods near her house after suffering many tragedies in her families especially when her husband was in a coma after a road accident.”
Version 3: At the mosque in Qom, she suddenly found herself crying. She used to think she was so smart and clever, yet realized in a moment of blinding clarity that narcissism led to nowhere. All negative feelings drained away from her, and she proclaimed “O Allah, Thank you!” as a “shot of pure emotional joy coursed through her veins.” She then slept on the floor of the mosque, and wondered where she was heading.
Now we can add version 4: At a masjid/mosque as a tourist she asked “Allah” to bless Palestine. She then sat down and felt such peace and tranquility and “knew the universe and the creator of the universe is peace”. She then slept on the floor of the Mosque and converted to Islam 7 days later in London.
Is she capable of telling the truth?
