This is appalling:

I was once asked by (then BBC) journalist John Ware if I practiced taqiyya. I had to ask him what it meant, and then he explained, and repeated the question. There’s something not quite right about that, but I can’t quite put my finger on what.

What kind of journalism is that?

(John Ware, in case you don’t know, made a documentary about the charity Interpal which was aired, controversially perhaps, during Israel’s freedom struggle against Lebanon.)
