Ever heard of Bridges TV? No? Well, you will soon, I'd say. The station, based in Buffalo NY, was set up about four years ago by Pakistani-American Muzzammil ("Mo") S. Hassan. He says he chose the station’s name because its purpose is "to build bridges of friendship and understanding." His primary objective, apparently was “to show ordinary Americans what ordinary Muslims are like”.
Well, he succeeded beyond his wildest dreams, because he’s just been charged with the decapitation of his wife (she had just filed for divorce). There was also a history of domestic violence, and the victim’s sister said she had ‘lived in fear of her life’ since the filing.
So yes, Americans now hopefully will have a much better understanding of Muslim domestic life after this. The picture would be complete were there a financial scam, an essential component of any Muslim commercial venture.
But wait! Here’s what a former employee of the station (who, tellingly, asked not to be named, CNN indicates, "for fear of retribution") has to say:
"Muzzammil Hassan put that money in his personal pocket and moved into a huge property with stables and horses. Nobody was there to question that how much money was spent on the actual project and how much was spent on his new but lavish lifestyle. None of our organizations bothered to look into it and inform their members of any concerns".
So the picture is complete. Objective achieved. Pity about the wife, but this well-educated Westernised woman must have known the risks associated with marrying a Muslim.
And there's an added benefit. The Feminazis, hitherto captive to their cultural equivalence theology have come storming in: Marcia Pappas, New York State president of the National Organization for Women: "This was apparently a terroristic version of honor killing, a murder rooted in cultural notions about women's subordination to men. … Too many Muslim men are using their religious beliefs to justify violence against women."
Oh boy - maybe there is hope after all.
