Pardon me for a sec. I’d like to go back and address the insane silence of the MSM regarding this BS Muslim-based beheading by a “moderate Muslim” concerned about his religion’s public branding.

Here’re a few questions: Why no reportage, Katie? Williams, don’t you wanna inform us cattle about this incident? Whoopi, where are you, girl? Lauer, are you listening? Are you guys checking your inboxes? Is this not newsworthy? Has political correctness got you by your short and curlies? What a bunch of wussies.

I guarantee that if a Christian TV executive Lizzy Bordened his bride we would hear about it ‘til Jesus came back screaming, “Hi-yo, Silver!” Yep, can you imagine if Paul Crouch severed his wife Jan’s pink-haired cabeza at TBN’s Praise the Lord Studios in Nashville? The MSM would be on that like stink on a monkey. Speaking of monkeys, maybe the chimp gone wild story this week trumped the beheading of a beautiful Muslim wife and mom. Yep, that’s got to be it. We must warn the world of the dangers of chimpanzees. Cough.

No doubt CAIR will fly straight into look-over-there negative press mitigation mode by denying Islam had anything to do with this. What am I to gather from these verses from the Qur’an, though? Robert Spencer from explains:

“The Qur’an says: ‘Men shall take full care of women with the bounties which God has bestowed more abundantly on the former than on the latter, and with what they may spend out of their possessions. And the righteous women are the truly devout ones, who guard the intimacy which God has [ordained to be] guarded. And as for those women whose ill-will you have reason to fear, admonish them [first]; then leave them alone in bed; then beat them…’ (4:34)

“The Islamic prophet Muhammad was once told that ‘women have become emboldened towards their husbands,’ whereupon he ‘gave permission to beat them’ (Sunan Abu Dawud, book 11, no. 2141). He was unhappy with the women who complained—not with their husbands who beat them.

“Muhammad even struck his favorite wife, Aisha. One night, thinking she was asleep, he went out. Aisha surreptitiously followed him. When he found out what she had done, he hit her: “He struck me on the chest which caused me pain, and then said: Did you think that Allah and His Apostle would deal unjustly with you?” (Sahih Muslim, book 4, no. 2127).”

Nice. How peaceful.

Lastly, here’s a little 411 for all you ladies out there: If your prophet or god is cool with your husband beating the crap out of you or hacking your head off for thinking Brad Pitt is cute or because you want to wear a Miracle Bra, eat a BLT, or dance to a Shakira song, take that as a cue for you to find a new god, prophet and husband.
