“Moderate” Muslim beheads his wife – moderately, I’m sure

From Buffalo News

Friends expressed shock on Friday that the founder of a Muslim TV channel — which he launched in order to counter violent images of Muslims — has been arrested in his wife’s brutal slaying. 
That’s working out well right now.

Muzzammil Hassan launched the channel in 2004 in hopes of dispelling stereotypes of Muslims as terrorists, and balancing widespread images of Muslim extremism with moderate viewpoints.
Perhaps that’s because beheading doesn’t count as being extreme in hardline Islamic countries where wives and daughters are regularly killed in the name of “honor.”  Now with this newly added story, this is becoming somewhat regular here.  See here and here.

“Obviously, this is the worst form of domestic violence possible,” Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III said Friday.
Understated, but not new to Islam.

The television channel, which Hassan had founded after leaving a job at M&T Bank, had been under financial strain, said Khalid J. Qazi, president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council of Western New York.

Published reports said that the venture was seeking new investors and battling cable carriers for access to a bigger audience.

In late 2006 a report in Arab News quoted Hassan saying he was trying to raise $5 million from investors in Saudi Arabia.
That should raise a big, red flag.  Saudi academies are popping up around the US teaching Islamic fundamentals and Jew and America hatred. See one example here.

The English-language broadcast had the endorsement of prominent American Muslims, including boxing great Muhammad Ali. News and other programs developed by the station were distributed via satellite to cable networks around the country.

Qazi said he didn’t see signs of that business strain spilling over into the marriage.
“I cannot believe it — I know them both well,” he said Friday. “I cannot get a handle on this.”
It would be a mistake to link an act of domestic violence to the couple’s religion, he added.
“There is no place for domestic violence in our religion — none,” Qazi said. “Islam would 100 percent condemn it.”
Not exactly.  See here.

The television station’s office on Thorn Avenue remained closed off as a crime scene on Friday while the investigation continued. The station’s Web site identifies the victim’s maiden name as Aasiya Zubair.

Muzzammil Hassan came to Orchard Park Police Headquarters at 6:20 p. m. Thursday and said that his wife was dead, Chief Andrew Benz said Friday. Hassan told police that his wife was at the television station, where officers went and found her body. Also involved in the investigation are personnel from the Sheriff’s Office, state police, Hamburg police, the District Attorney’s Office and the county’s Central Police Services Laboratory.

Parents of Muzzammil Hassan were thought to be en route to the area from Texas. Parents of Aasiya Hassan were said to be coming from Pakistan, and the mother of the older Hassan children was said to be coming from Pennsylvania. (emphasis added)
Another red flag, Pakistan.  Our “friend and ally” in the war on terror who hate when we take out Taliban and al-Qaeda leaders without their permission and who recently admitted that the Taliban has a “huge” presence in Pakistan.  Remember, they already have nukes!

Muzzammil Hassan was arraigned before Village Justice Deborah Chimes Thursday and taken to the Holding Center. Holding Center officials said late Friday information about Hassan’s bail had not yet been received. and

To all truly moderate Muslims.  Our “Islamophobia” IS warranted and it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to change that – not our responsibility to change our perceptions of Islam and Muslims!  We have plenty of evidence to be wary of Muslims and as long as the bombings, beheadings, murders and THREATS of violence continue, we will be watching with this same eye.  There was no significant backlash against you as people after your brothers killed over 3,000 people on 9-11, yet you remain silent as this stuff occurs day after day.  Put forth a loud and continuous denunciation, not cries of discrimination…..  We’re waiting.
