Beheaded wife had “no authority” to divorce her alleged murderer
Canada Free Press ^ | 2/20/09 | Doug Hagmann

Posted on 02/20/2009 9:53:55 AM PST by Nachum

If the West’s wholesale lack of understanding of fundamentalist Islam or its acquiescence to the pressures of political correctness affixed to the acceptance of Islamic culture was presented as a court case. The alleged beheading of 37-year-old Aasiya Hassan by her husband could effectively serve as “Exhibit 1.” Last Thursday, Aasiya Hassan was murdered and then beheaded.

Alleged murderer. You mean someone ELSE may have murdered her at the tv studio?

And that person may still be lurking out on the streets?!!!

The alleged beheading of 37-year-old Aasiya Hassan

No no no, it is an alleged BEHEADING! She may, in fact, still have her head, unless it is proven otherwise!

Y'see.

‘If the West’s wholesale lack of understanding of fundamentalist Islam ‘

I’m really tired of this particular assertion. We all ‘understand’ fundamentalist Islam, all too well.

What nobody bothers to ask is when will Fundementalist Islam try to UNDERSTAND THE REST OF US.

But on this specific topic, what we want to ‘understand’ is why NBC has yet to REPORT THIS STORY. Or CBS. Or ABC.

These clowns did two and a half YEARS on OJ Simpson...who also cut his wife’s head off - for those of you unfamiliar with that particular detail of that infamous murder.

Hell, they covered Dick Cheney accidentally shooting a friend while hunting 5,000 percent more than this.

Abu Ghraib? Haditha? But not this?

If he murdered her then why cut her head off?
Isn’t that the koran way?

Obviuosly the husband should be convicted of murder. In our culture, the murder itself is more important than the fact she wanted to leave him. In their culture it is reversed. They lived in the west therefore he’s guilty! In their culture the beheading would have been accepted. We cannot possibly consider all the aspects of each culture to determine guilt or innocents! If so, it’s total chaos!

We have to respect other religions and points of view. If the murder/beheading of this mans wife is protected by Islam, who are we to question it.

???)

It’s always “alleged” until conviction. I could kill a nun in broad daylight on the courthouse steps and I would only be an alleged killer until convicted by the jury.

According to The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon his name as he sits by the side of the blessed Allah with his feet upon the heads of all infidels, a man who follows the Holy Koran can do anything he wants (murder, rape, pedophilia, mass carnage ANYTHING!) It was so since the Prophet himself, peace and blessings be upon him, married his 6-year-old Aisha...infidels will never unfortunately understand the Muslim culture of Sharia or the blessed and Holy religion of peace! (sarcasm intended)

It seems most beheadings being done by jihadis are done with steak knives or butcher knives. I'm not going to post links to the videos but if you want to see them you can easily find them and see what I mean.

That said, Islam is a pestilence on the face of the earth that should be utterly and completely eradicated and if that means having to hunt down and wipe out every last believer of that filth then so be it.

Because they want to do it to us.

If he beheaded her specifically to prevent her entry into Paradise, should there be some kind of hate crime enhancement since this part of the crime was motivated by and directed against her religious beliefs.

And when the killer commits suicide at the scene of the crime (or is killed by an officer or someone else who is armed), they still refer to them as “alleged”. Film evidence etc. never factors into it either.

And dead people are not sentenced so there will never be “conviction” in those cases.

How about calling him her alleged husband while we are at it.

The sentence structure is poor:
The alleged beheading of 37-year-old Aasiya Hassan by her husband could ....

Should have been:
The beheading of 37-year-old Aasiya Hassan allegedly by her her husband could .....

The beheading is fact, the perp is alleged.

Here’s a good column on the restrained coverage:

The case was as grisly as they come: A wealthy television executive walked into a police station last Thursday to report that his wife was lying dead at the television station office where they worked in suburban Buffalo, N.Y. When police arrived there, they found the decapitated body of Aasiya Hassan, a 37-year-old mother of two who recently had filed for divorce. Police say she was beheaded by her 44-year-old husband, Muzzammil Hassan, whom they have charged with second-degree murder.

In a media climate that operates by the dictum “if it bleeds, it leads,” such a gruesome murder could have been expected to make national headlines within hours. Instead, the story took nearly a week get any traction. And early reports about the beheading were oddly restrained, marked by a degree of detachment and disinterest rarely seen in the sensationalistic world of modern journalism.

You never know, she may have just lost her head.

With all the PC a$$-kissing of Muslims by the media, I’m surprised that they even admit to suspecting foul play.

Correction:

"If the West’s wholesale lack of understanding of fundamentalist moderate Islam"

Remember: This husband was teaching Americans about how moderate Islam is.

Though his wife might object.

Except she can't.

He chopped off her head.

That's "Moderate" Islam for you.
