Mehdi Hasan Sam Harris
Sam Harris, a popular online atheist who has criticized all religions and is affiliated with the “Intellectual Dark Web,” took issue with being labeled as a ‘bigot’ by Hasan.

Mehdi Hasan Iran
A regular contributor to The Guardian, Hasan argued in November 2011: “Wouldn’t it be rational for Iran geographically encircled, politically isolated, feeling threatened to want its own arsenal of nukes, for defensive and deterrent purposes?
“Pointing out the difference between America, and its allies, going to “war with non-nuclear Iraq” and their “diplomacy with nuclear-armed North Korea”, Hasan concluded: “The simple fact is there is no alternative to diplomacy, no matter how truculent or paranoid the leaders of Iran might seem to western eyes.”
Hasan wrote an article in The Guardian in September 2011 condemning the Iranian regime for its proposed execution of an “apostate.” “The death sentence given to Youcef Nadarkhani in Iran is an affront to universal moral values and a disservice to Muslims.”
Mehdi Hasan Jake Tapper
Mehdi Hasan ripped the “gutless” anonymous Trump administration official writing a book now, saying if they’ve got some dire warning for the country, they should say it publicly.CNN White House correspondent Jeremy Diamond told Jake Tapper it’s “highly unusual” they’re staying anonymous, suggesting this will help feed into the president’s “deep state narrative “by releasing an entire book on that premise.”
Hasan said, “I rarely agree with Donald J. Trump, but when he called this person gutless, I kind of agreed.”He continued, “If this person has all this information, is an eyewitness to all of this chaos and lawlessness, come out. Say it in your own name, testify in front of Congress, talk to the media. There’s an impeachment inquiry going on right now.”
Hasan also argued if the person is remaining anonymous to help protect America from within, based on everything that’s happened since the op-ed came out, he’s not seeing many indications they’ve done that. Mary Katharine Ham agreed they should put their name on it and said this whole thing is “tiresome.”
