The New Statesman's Political Editor Speaks

Like Martin Bright at the Spectator I'm a little lost for words at the following video posted on Harry's Place of the New Statesman's Senior Editor (Politics), Mehdi Hasan. We are "cattle" it seems.

“The kaffar, the disbelievers, the atheists who remain deaf and stubborn to the teachings of Islam, the rational message of the Quran; they are described in the Quran as, quote, “a people of no intelligence”, Allah describes them as; not of no morality, not as people of no belief - people of “no intelligence” - because they’re incapable of the intellectual effort it requires to shake off those blind prejudices, to shake off those easy assumptions about this world, about the existence of God. In this respect, the Quran describes the atheists as “cattle”, as cattle of those who grow the crops and do not stop and wonder about this world.”
Nice. Apparently this is only "Part I" of an expose at Harry's PLace too.
