Mr Dawkins, Belief in a Winged Horse is Mehdi Hasan’s Smallest “Problem”

One of the original stories that earned Richard Dawkins the accusations of “Islamophobia” (an honor if you ask me) was his following tweet on journalist Mehdi Hasan:

hasan

Which, of course, lead to a firestorm against Dawkins. And justly so. How dare anyone fail to “respect” Hasan’s deeply held belief in winged horses!

As it happens, though, Hasan should be disqualified from working for any reputable publication for a much simpler reason: he is pure poison. He calls those who disagree with his worldview cattle. It is interesting that Hasan gets all the sympathy and Dawkins all the vilification for stridency, even though you would never hear Dawkins using such language.

    Good grief, I was actually in the audience that time.

    I do wish Dawkins could up his game a little against chaps like Mehdi.

    Religion is for idiots, but Islam is particularly disgusting.

    Indeed, irrational beliefs in winged horses is probably the least of problems with Mehdi Hassan.
    Would Mehdi Hassans utterings above not qualify as hate-speech? Indeed would not great portions of the Qur’an, Hadith and Sira not qualify as hate-speech?
