Well, that explains a few things.  FromWorld Net Daily

A Muslim TV network founder who has been charged with beheading his wife was the recipient of an award from the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations, the self-described Muslim civil rights group that boasts of its influence on U.S. government policy.

Muzzammil Hassan, 44, and his wife, Aasiya Hassan, 37, founded Bridges TV in November 2004. They described it as a satellite news and opinion channel aimed at portraying Muslims in a positive light following the Sept. 11 attacks.

Pennsylvania’s Democratic Gov. Ed Rendell and Rep. Joseph Sestak of Pennsylvania’s 7th District were special guests at the event. Sestak was the keynote speaker.

“The American-Muslim community is a wonderful community and they have my strong support,” Sestak said in a statement. “They are among our District’s leaders, and among other things, have contributed to the success of businesses, educational institutions, interfaith circles and the health sector. Their participation in civic life is indicative of the great diversity and tolerance of this nation.” (emphasis added)

Too bad it only seems to be a one-way street.

In 2005, Hassan told the Buffalo News he decided to form the television station after he heard disparaging comments about U.S. Muslims on a radio talk show. It operates under the slogan “connecting people through understanding.”

“Every day on television we are barraged by stories of a ‘Muslim extremist, militant, terrorist, or insurgent,'” Hassan said in a 2004 press release. “But the stories that are missing are the countless stories of Muslim tolerance, progress, diversity, service and excellence that Bridges TV hopes to tell.”

Well all the death and violence that occurs daily is just a little too distracting. That and the lack of any strong, unified organization that vehemently and publicly denounces Islamic terrorism rather than running to the rescue of, and making excuses for, the perpetrators.  The “racist” and “Islamophobe” arguments hold NO water when we see the violence which is mandated in your Qu’ran.

Beheadings are more common in Hassan’s former homeland of Pakistan and throughout the Islamic world:

  • Just a week ago, Taliban terrorists in that country beheaded a Polish geologist abducted in an effort to arrange a prisoner swap.
  • An American U.N. worker, John Solecki, is currently facing a similar fate at the hands of Islamic terrorists in that country.
  • Terrorists in Pakistan video recorded the beheading of American reporter Daniel Pearl.
  • Terrorists in Iraq video recorded the beheading of American Nicholas Berg.
  • Beheading is a common form of execution in Saudi Arabia.
  • Beheading is a common way to conduct a so-called “honor killing” – the murder of a wife – throughout the Islamic world.

What a lovely and peaceful “religion.”  No, thank you.
Why again (and again and again) are we letting these people in here? 

For more from the “Religion of Peace” see this new story about the Muslim convert (converted in our prison no less) that shot a cop in cold blood responding to a fight. From myfoxphilly, here’s just a small portion.  Read it all.  This is in America.

 

Ramsey told Fox 29 News that police are now trying to determine if Scrugs — who also goes by the alias Rasheed Abdulghaffer — may have converted to a radical form of “jailhouse Islam” during his years in prison.

Ironically, Ramsey said he was briefed by FBI agents on Friday about this radical form of Islam. That was just hours before Pawlowski was shot.

Ramsey said there’s a growing concern among law enforcement. “This is a radical form where certainly committing crime and killing police officers and so forth is part of it,” Ramsey said.
