So Maajid was an islamist (Hizb ut-Tahrir group) and was arrested in Egypt in 2001. Rather then festering in the islamist way, interacting with other "like minded" islamists to self-feed their hatred, he studied & when he was freed started pushing liberal islam. So what you say. listen to some of his teardowns

He's been around for ages. Often on british shows. He's been on Bill Maher's show too.

Funny thing about it him, I live and work in central London, and he is the only "famous" person I have ever seen. Quite strange. I guess it's a big city. I rarely bump into people I know.

You should pay attention to Tarek Fatah too.

He risks the rare double head-shot suicide just by leaving the embassy. If he were to be extradited here, he'd just be convicted. I think he has more to worry about if he ever tries to live freely in a country that won't extradite him.
