Israeli who was arrested in Beirut is a convert to Islam

YNet is reporting this morning that Daniel Mussa Sharon, the Israeli who was arrested in Beirut over the weekend, converted to Islam in 1996.
Sharon was interviewed by Yedioth Ahronoth upon his conversion to Islam. He said he was a devout Muslim who fasted on Ramadan and attended Friday prayers.


He was born in Munich and his family moved to Israel when he was two-years-old. His father lives in Shavei Tzion near the northern town of Nahariya.

"Daniel told me he visits Beirut frequently using his German passport. He speaks Arabic with a khaligi accent (attributed to the Gulf countries). Once I asked him how he dare go to Lebanon and he said, 'I am only afraid to travel to Syria," a family friend said.

In a May 1996 interview with Yedioth, Sharon said he first visited Lebanon two days before Israel's Operation Grapes of Wrath that was launched against Hizbullah in April 1996.

Sharon, who lived in Jordan at the time, flew from Amman to Beirut where customs officers asked him whether he was the son of Ariel Sharon.
I hope this at least means that the Israeli government won't pay for this guy with terrorists, like they did with Elhanan Tannenbaum. But a homosexual (yes, that's why he claimed he was in Lebanon) converting to Islam is one of the strangest things I have heard in a long time. Why would he? (Note that last night it was reported that he converted to Judaism. Someone needs to get their act together at YNet).
