    Mehdi Hasan should distance himself from his own self !! He once remarked in a Muslim only meeting - that non-Muslims were like animals - in essence beneath Muslims or substandard. A part of the ideology that forms that basis for Islamic law - which awards a superior status for Muslims - and all others are made inferior. Judged as being incapable of demonstrating the same level of humanity as a Muslim. [The video is on youtube] I hardly think journalism is Mehdi's main aim. Spouting all the right noises - he no doubt hopes to one day slot into the politician system - where he can push his Islamist - ie political Islam agenda. Although he has toned it down in for the Huffpo [likely on request] - in the New Statement - one might have been mistaken for thinking - it had become the New Islamic Statesman!! Taking pains to explain Islam in a way that removes it's thorny bits - even when challenged - by comments under his column - his jihad by pen continued unabated. Delivering to the underling non-Muslim their dose of Islam-a-day!! Prominent Muslim leaders and some persuaded on the Left - believe that Islamic laws should be integrated in the western laws - and use spurious claims of racism to further both their political and religious aims.
