Broken Bridges



From Fox News

Muzzammil Hassan, right, founder of Bridges TV, is charged with murder in the beheading of his wife, Aasiya Hassan, left, in Orchard Park, N.Y. [The] Muslim-American television executive who allegedly beheaded his wife days after she filed for divorce remains jailed without bail following a court appearance in western New York.



In order to promote one of it's programs later this evening, Fox News posed this teaser question: [paraphrased] Muslim TV exec beheads wife: Was this an exercise in religious belief or was it murder?

I'm sorry, but I am incredulous and outraged by this blatant display of total ignorance. If the most conservative news channel in the US can even pose this question with a straight face, is there any hope for us in this GWOT? Are we seriously going to debate this issue? Have we slipped that far down that slippery slope of multicultural pc nonsense? Have we abandoned all reason, all common sense, merely to show our respect to a bloodthirsty cult that poses as a legitimate religion? Have we learned nothing in all this time? Are we determined to continue our roles as useful idiots? Will we just ignore all that we have learned about the treacherous duplicity of the Muslim world, the evil machinations of its political arms, most noticeably in the recent scandals of that serpent's nest CAIR?
How can we seriously consider such a question? How can we still be this naive, this clueless, as to the nature of the enemy in our midst?
Was it murder? My God! What are we becoming? Are we now going to change our very vocabulary to suit our most recent -- and most dangerous -- immigrants?

To pose this as an either/or question presumes that there are two possible answers. And to make that preposterous presumption is to denigrate everything we stand for.
Is there no end to our moral capitulation? - rg

  1. Both the domestic abuse and religious right approaches are being first mentioned by media here in the Buffalo, NY area [Orchard Park is a suburb]

    One of their employees stated that she thought it was more a domestic abuse case rather than a religious honor killing...and that's where that came from.

    Next, if one begins to see the number of reported killings of Islamic women in America that are "honor killings", we also must realize the sharia law that is trying to be forced into the court system. If Islam is a protected religion under the constitution then they are going to say so is murder--according to the hadiths.

  2. The real issue is that 24 hours after this beheading was first reported a Google news search showed that only 3 sources (including the original) had covered the story!!! And 48 hours after this story was first reported, only 37 sources covered the story and many of those were blogs.

    Why didn't the national media cover this story???

    No.

    Yes.

    Yes.

    No.

    Yes.

    Yes.

    But, then, your questions were rhetorical.

    Imagine if a so-called Christian had done anything as heinous as this.

    The advocacy/adversary media would've exhumed Jerry Falwell and hung what's left of him from the nearest TV transmission tower.

    And the adversary/advocacy print media?

    They would've been apoplectic.

    BTW: Treating this crime as domestic abuse is exactly analagous to Bill Clinton treating the first bombing of the then-standing World Trade Center as a crime, not act of war.

    And who was involved in that?

    Yes, those members of that violent political movement couched in manmade religious trappings, a movement some have called a "religion of peace" and one that Barack Obama is about to bow before.
