In New York, a respected 44-yr old man, an influential member of the muslim community, has been charged with beheading his 37-yr old muslim wife.
In Islamic countries, these “honor killings” are not considered a crime. If a male member of a family (usually a father or brother) thinks that a female in his family is not being a “good muslim woman” – it’s okay to kill her. The reasons are hard to believe, often the victims are teenage girls or early 20′s who are interested in dating non-muslim men. Sometimes it’s because she didn’t obey the man, or she was becoming “westernized” – choosing not to wear traditional muslim style clothing, or some other nonsense. It’s happening more and more in the USA, but it’s being ignored by our media.
This monster, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, is the founder and chief executive officer of Bridges TV, which he launched in 2004, amid hopes that it would help portray Muslims in a more positive light. (is that ironic or what??)
Everyone should be outraged, especially the women, especially the feminists. Look how one official softballed it, “Obviously, this is the worst form of domestic violence possible,” District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III said. If that ain’t the understatement of the day…
