Why Is The MSM Silent On The Muslim-Relations TV Owner Who Beheaded His Wife?

Muzzammil Hassan recently admitted to police that he beheaded his wife after she filed for divorce.

Muzzammil and Aasiya Hassan founded Bridges TV in November 2004 to counter anti-Islam stereotypes, touting the network as the "first-ever full-time home for American Muslims," according to a 2004 press release.

Certainly, an American man beheading his wife, of any faith would be news worthy, one would think, right? At the very least, the irony that a man who fought "Islam stereotypes" would use the controversial Islam-accepted "honor killing" to murder his wife.

Well, no, apparently not, at least to the MSM. Laura Ingraham pointed out on tonight's "The O'Reilly Factor" that outside of Fox News and a small mention at, the story is not being reported.

Not one mention on CBS, NBC or ABC.

From News Busters:

Although the Associated Press reported this bizarre story early Friday evening, as did, it received little attention outside of the state of New York.

Care to guess why?

Given the hatred of all other religions that is so prominent in the media today, just imagine if the owner of a television network extolling Judeo-Christian principles beheaded his wife.

Think you would have heard about that?

Yeah, I do, too.

Wife Beating And Honor Killings Approved By Islamic Clerics

Muzzammil Hassan has apparently committed what is standard practice in many Muslim families: The so-called “honor killing.” Under radical Shariah Law, this is permitted to restore the supposed honor of the male head of the family. In America, law enforcement agencies are dealing with increasing numbers of these so-called honor killings by Muslim men. The victims are usually wives or daughters who have adopted western ways of thinking or behavior.

Many politically-correct commentators are claiming that Hassan’s actions have no relationship to his religious beliefs. This is false. It has everything to do with Islam’s teachings about the subjection of women under male domination.

The use of violence against wives – including honor killings -- are approved practices in Islamic tradition. Punishment ranges from “light discipline” to honor killings. The use of violence against women is rooted in the Qur’an (Koran).

According to Islam founder Mohammed, it was permissible to beat wives if they are “emboldened towards their husbands.” The Koran says in 4:34 that it is permissible to beat wives. Muslim clerics also approve of the practice. Spanish cleric Mohammed Kamal Mustafa authored a book, Women In Islam, that describes how men are to use physical punishment against their wives.

Honor killings are also approved in Islamic cultures even in those nations that don’t fully operate under Shariah Law. Phyllis Chesler, writing in the Middle East Quarterly, (Spring, 2009) writes about how common honor killing is in Muslim nations and is becoming increasingly common in Western nations where there are large populations of unassimilated Muslims. The numbers of honor killings are on the rise. In 2007, in only one province of Pakistan there were 1,261 honor killings! Jordanian Muslim clerics have declared that honor killings are an imperative!

Wife beating and so-called honor killings are part of Islamic belief!

Muzzammil Hassan has proven what many Americans believe about radical Islam: It is incompatible with American freedom and those practicing the Wahhabi brand of Islam have no respect for human life or for women’s rights.

Hassan’s brand of Islam has no place on American soil. His brutal murder of his wife should be vigorously prosecuted to send a message to other Muslims that if they wish to live in freedom, they must respect our Judeo-Christian legal system and our Constitution.

Disgusting, right? So where are the women's rights groups? Maybe they should focus their outrage on the MSM's failure to report this sick, twisted story instead of attacking Bill O'Reilly for an innocent joke.

But again, that would go against their true mission: advancing their socialist political agenda.


LGF also points out that was given an award in 2007 by the Hamas-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR).
