The website of a New York TV network whose aim is to improve American perceptions of Islam was shut down this morning, two days after its founder admitted to the beheading of his wife. And while that irony might bring a momentary smile, another attempt to conceal the facts behind an honor killing right here in America should stir nothing short of outrage.
Muzzammil Hassan, CEO of Bridges TV, whose motto is "connecting people through understanding," apparently didn't think Thursday's honor killing -- and make no mistake about what this was -- at the station might somehow blur that message.
Of course, police and mainstream media are treating the gruesome homicide as a simple case of domestic violence. Even though the victim, 37-year-old Aasiya Zubair, had recently filed for divorce and apparently was concerned enough about her Muslim husband's reaction to obtain a restraining order. And, despite the fact that she was beheaded, a particularly hideous practice all but unthinkable to any but Islamic fundamentalists, you can bet that her murderer's religion will never be mentioned, as though it were irrelevant.
But history tells us that, notwithstanding the pattern of denial by the Dhimmi dummies of the MSM, this man's religion is extremely relevant. The United Nations Population Fund estimates that "as many as 5,000 women and girls a year are murdered by members of their own families, many of them for the ‘dishonour' of having been raped." And these so-called "honor killings," once a disgraceful abomination known only to Islamic nations, are gradually creeping into western society right under our noses.
Pressured by Islamic advocacy groups and the prevailing winds of political correctness, authorities and news organizations remain remarkably mute. And, in doing so, these naïve multi-cultists only pave the way for more victims of "domestic violence" at the hands of followers of Sharia, not local, law.
Let's never forget "domestic violence" victim Aqsa Parvez, the 16-year-old Canadian girl whose father strangled her for refusing to wear the traditional Muslim head scarf in 2007. Or Amina and Sarah Said of Dallas, both murdered by their father in 2008 for dating non-Muslim boys. Or Sandeela Kanwal of Georgia, who was strangled to death by her Muslim father, Chaudhry Rashid, last July.
Rashid's actions are of special note here, as he actually admitted his motive to be protecting his family's honor from the divorce his daughter was planning.
Yet the silence persists. Where the hell are all the pissed-off women's groups? This sister was beheaded! Here! In America!
At around 10:30 AM EST this morning, the website for Bridges Television also went silent, replaced with the message "This website is temporarily down for maintenance." Whether this was a permanent shutdown or "maintenance" to either scrub all references to or make absurd apologies for the butcher Hassan, only time will tell.
Meanwhile, say it loud - This was another Honor Killing.
Welcome to the Dhimmi House.
In my rush to scoop the website shutdown - which took place during my research - I let the far more significant story get by me. An American woman was beheaded by her Muslim husband for seeking a divorce and few know anything about it because the majority of media refuse to report it. This outrage should be commanding national headlines.
