In his ongoing efforts to portray Muslims as chummy neighbors, Muzzammil Hassan, founder of Bridges TV, cut his wife’s head off last week when Muzzy found out she was going to ditch him. What’s that, you say?

This is the first you’ve heard of the 2/12/2009 beheading in Buffalo in which a Muslim TV exec chopped his wife’s noggin off in one of their office suites? Oh, I’m sorry. I assumed that you’d already heard about it—but then I just recalled that ABC, NBC, CBS, and NPR haven’t said a word about it since it happened. Oops. My bad.

Let me bring you up to speed with some background 411 on Islam’s latest right here in our backyard. According to my good buddy Robert Spencer over at

Last Thursday (2/12/09), a woman named Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37, was found decapitated in Orchard Park, New York, a village near Buffalo. Her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, was charged, rather oddly, with second-degree murder in the case . . . (2nd degree murder? What’s a guy gotta do to get 1st degree murder, saw the body in half?) . . . Aasiya Hassan’s body was found in the offices of the cable channel, Bridges TV. Aasiya Hassan was the inspiration for Bridges TV, and Muzzammil Hassan was its founder.

Check this out: According to Spencer, Muzzammil Hassan founded Bridges TV in 2004 to combat the negative perceptions of Muslims that he thought were dominating the mainstream media. According to a Reuters story at the time, Aasiya “came up with the idea in December 2001 while listening to the radio on a road trip.” Muzzammil Hassan explained: “Some derogatory comments were being made about Muslims that offended her. She was seven months pregnant, and she thought she didn’t want her kids growing up in this environment.” Bridges TV originally declared that its intention was to “fuse American culture with the values of Islam in a healthy, family-oriented way.”

Wow, Hassan, you sort of got off course there, now didn’t ‘cha?

Hey, Muzzy, you want to mitigate that negative PR that Islam is getting by decapitating thy bride? Holy crap, Hassan. Someone remind me not to hire this cat to do any PR work for my show or books once Holder pardons him.

Unbelievable stuff right there, folks.

Now, help me, Muzzammil. Be patient with me as I am a slow, dense, Jesus-following, funkadelic plebian. How does lopping off your wife’s cranium further sell us Judeo-Christian infidels on the healthy and family-friendly ways of Islam? It’s just a question. Don’t dust up, alright?
