Sean Ali Stone

Sean Ali Stone Interview: FOX News - O'Reilly Factor, Feb 21 2012

BILL O'REILLY: "Personal Story" segment tonight, 27-year-old Sean Stone, son of controversial director Oliver Stone, converted to Islam in Iran on Valentine's Day. The younger Stone is also a filmmaker and was traveling through Iran to produce a movie about a Persian poet. He joins us now from New York City. So Sean, we have no beef that you converted to Islam. We applaud all religious people of conscience. But your association with Iran is interesting.

SEAN STONE: Well, in the first place, I wouldn't say, you know -- the conversion is an interesting word because I don't believe you can convert from one God -- from the same God. From one God to the same God. So I've also believed in the same Judeo-Christian God. I think it's a misunderstanding of Islam to say that Allah is a different God. It's a different name for the same one. So I accepted Islam. And I think it's an important move.

Also politically, you know, if you want to understand the history of this region because, you know, the Persians have been, you know, Muslim for going on, what 1,400 years. They have many Jews in Iran, and actually, I spoke with some when I was in Esfahan, which is where I took the vow.

And, you know, the Iranian people are very intelligent people. I had great discussions with politicians. I met with the president briefly. I had discussions with the advisor to the supreme leader. And every time I was -- you know, I had these conversations, I was very clear in saying, you know, let's stop with this "down with America" nonsense.

And, you know, they have a problem with our government. And it has to do with imperialism as a long-standing policy in this region, going back to the British empire. But they understand my point of view. I think it really helps for the American image, frankly, by my being there and having these conversations and having this dialogue.
