    Except his name is Douglas McCain, not McArthur.

    Douglas McAuthur was his rapper name.

    Appears it was his middle name.

    To bad his first name wasn't John.

    There was a time when Middle Eastern Muslims looked at US converts
    as not true muslims and more posers. I guess this has changed.

    What's the deal with all the rappers going to ISIS? Somebody better take away Kid 'n Play's passports.

    Was thinking McAurthur's son -- who has changed his name and lived out of the spotlight for decades -- had died, but his name is Aurthur.

    An opportunity to meet Cat Stevens?

    I'm skeptical. McAuthur/McCain's family doesn't seem to be grieving hard enough.
