I was in the fair city of Buffalo New York last week attending my mother in law's funeral...and while I was there one might say that the ca-ca hit the fan. The main stream media covered, as they should, the tragic crash of flight 3407. However, you had to search the back pages for mention of the Buffalo man who whacked off his wife's head.
Any guesses as to the religion of the head chopper? As Steyn says, it begins with an I and ends with a slam. Several conservative news sources remarked with faux surprise the lack of coverage this vicious crime received in the MSM. Imagine if some Tim Horton's swilling, Christian, white guy had committed this crime. Can you say front page news? The shock and outrage would have been more intense than the stiff breeze blowing off Lake Erie. And that is one stiff breeze by my deep south standards.
And the irony of this murderous act is the details as reported by the Buffalo News:
Muzzammil Hassan 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.
Whoops! So much for the positive light angle.
With a crime of this nature one would expect a bearded, turban wearing jihadist holding his wife's burqua covered head up for a photo op. But no. Instead, we see the smiling faces of a typical American couple. But apparently Muzzammil was typical only by his fancy American threads. It seems the Missus wanted out of the marriage...so he obliged her with a divorce...Muslim style.
Where was the wall to wall coverage of this crime? It was buried in the back pages so as to not insult Islam, that's where is was.
Lesson: You can take the boy out of Islam, but you can't take the Islam out of the boy.
RIP Mrs. Hassan.
