Verizon Drops Muslim TV Channel Whose Owner Beheaded His General Manager
Febuary 24, 2012
Bridges TV anchor Samatha Azzar
Verizon will drop the Muslim cable channel Bridges TV on March 14, almost a year to the day after the channel's owner was sentenced to life in prison for beheading his wife, who was also the station's general manager.
The murder occurred at Bridges TV's studio in 2009, six days after Aasiya Hassan told her abusive husband Muzzammil she was divorcing him. Muzzammil Hassan, the channel's founder, then lured his wife to the studio where he stabbed her 40 times and hacked off her head with a pair of hunting knives.
Verizon's decision to drop the channel is unrelated to Hassan's crime. The company told Metro:
"This programming has been discontinued due to very low viewership and the continued effort of Verizon to offer our customers the most popular channels while keeping our rates reasonable."
Bridges TV news director and anchor Samantha Azzar told Metro:
"Without Verizon, we will cease to exist. We won't be able to stay on... There will be no voice for local Muslim Americans to cover stories that are important to them."
Bridges TV's advertisers included Ford and American Islamic College.
The Daily News once noted:
Muzzammil Hassan founded Bridge TV in 2004. The American-Islamic station was designed to combat the negative stereotype of Muslims post-9/11.

“Without Verizon, we will cease to exist. We won’t be able to stay on... There will be no voice for local Muslim Americans to cover stories that are important to them.”
Boo - f’n- Hoo!
They should pick up a cannibalism channel... because all cultures and all religions are equal.
That’s Islamic Sho-Biz!!!!
“The American-Islamic station was designed to combat the negative stereotype of Muslims post-9/11.”...
That sure worked for this Gilligan!
The Islamic Gong Show is serious!
sometimes the jokes just write themselves.
Heads will roll!
“There will be no voice for local Muslim Americans”
You can be a Muslim or an American. It’s impossible to be both.
The wife who was later beheaded gave him the idea for the channel. Noting his last name and recalling the cartoon Ali Baba Bunny (Bugs Bunny), we remembered the phrase from it:
“Muzzammil Hassan founded Bridge TV in 2004. The American-Islamic station was designed to combat the negative stereotype of Muslims post-9/11.]”
So if they had better ratings, they would keep the channel and sell it as a premium channel?
Try NPR news, honey. That's all they ever talk about.
Oh oh, Verizon is now on the ‘who survives and who dies list’.
I’d sure hate to be the guy who asks him for a raise.
Does this mean no more....
Fatwa Knows Best?
How I Murdered Your Mother?
Allah In The Family?
Have Jihad Will Travel?
Quran As Folk?
I’d suffer worse, believe me. This might help. Call them what I do. Folks are maybe tired of seeing me post it all the time but I find it works for me: “Worthless Saracen* bastards’’. *Saracen’’(’noun.) 1.A member of any of the nomadic tribes on the Syrian border of the Roman Empire. 2.(later use) an Arab. 3. A Muslim.
It might have actually accomplished that HAD HE NOT SLICED HIS WIFE'S HEAD OFF!!!
Come listen to a story bout a man named Ahmed
Poor Camel driver barely kept his family fed.
Then one day- he was shootin at some Jews
When up through the ground comes a bubblin ooze
Oil that is Saudi soda.... Persian Perrier
Now the first thing ya know, Ahmeds a millionaire
Kin folk said: Ahmed, Move away from there!
said: Californy is the place that youd do fair
So the loaded up their camel and they moved to BelAir
swimmin pools movie stars ...Jews....
The Bel Arabs!
Cry me a river of pig blood.....
“...Without Verizon, we will cease to exist....”
And the problem with this is........?
Nothing says bad PR like beheading your wife!
Nothing says bad PR like beheading your wife!
So many jokes in the headline.
Did you know Islam is a religion of peace and mercy?
Islam = Death, Destruction and Misery.
Actually, it's a pretty good indicator of Verison's moral standards that this "channel" wasn't canceled the same day, ON THE SPOT!
Anywhere but Islam would consider this a horrific crime, but for Islam and their supporters, it's just another day.
Hard to do when the head is separated from the body.
Blam I not surpise I think the rating I have turn in by chance that channel and it sucks
Maybe if they really want Muslum turn in give them Al Jazeera english news I watch that LOL!
HEY Dfwgator I did have reruns of Beverly Hillbillies for while I am surprise
WOW.....these are sick, sick people!
DONT WORRY! The Muslim terrorist in Chief, Obama HUSSEIN will jump in and give this Muslim Channel Millions in U.S. Taxpayer Money to keep them afloat. Obama HUSSEIN will also require not only Verizon, but every other Cable Network in the U.S. to carry the trash as well.
We know HUSSEIN believes in Religious Freedom when it comes to the Muslim Mosque at Ground Zero, and apologizes for each KORAN burned, but screw the Catholics and other Christians! just as he and his cousin, Odinga, did in KENYA
when they didn’t win the Presidential Election! Is that what Obama HUSSEIN has planned for Us in the U.S. when he Looses on November 4, 2012????
Or, as it turned out, to reinforce it!
Haven't seen THAT one for a few years...
yep with beastiality too....LOL!!!!
yep, and that is a surprise, look at their idol. he lied about being a prophet, was a pervert, and a bloodthirsty barbarian..
They also dropping the Funimation channel which was grouped with all the kids channels even though a ton of its content was rated MA. and not just at night either.
Lame. I didn’t know that existed. That sounds awesome! But to your point, I’m 30~
channel 252 I think... or is it 262?
hey Verizon, when will you learn to be tolerant of other cultures? /s
I don't want them either way.
25 years ago, we had Ronald Reagan, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope.
If you can't appreciate the pure beauty of the violin after hearing this, something's wrong with your ears.
Or you can get raw with these strings.
How about this gamechanger from America's Got Talent (which they SHOULD have won).
And finally, this, dedicated to the one and only rdb2, whose eyes are growing dim.
Either way, the violin is sweet yet LETHAL.
