Muslim Man Beheads Wife in Buffalo; Mainstream Media Mum

From The Buffalo News:

Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband an influential member of the local Muslim community reported her death to police Thursday.

Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.

"He came to the police station at 6:20 p.m. [Thursday] and told us that she was dead," Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz said late this morning.

Muzzammil Hassan told police that his wife was at his business, Bridges TV, on Thorn Avenue in the village. Officers went to that location and discovered her body.

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.

The killing apparently occurred some time late Thursday afternoon. Detectives still are looking for the murder weapon.

Apparently Mrs. Hassan had recently filed for divorce. Remember, in Islam, men may divorce their wives but women do not enjoy that option.

Domestic violence is noted by the Erie County DA, of course, but no mention of Sharia law, of course.

And Mark Steyn notices the lack of media attention other than the local press:

Just asking, but are beheadings common in western New York? I used to spend a lot of time in that neck of the woods and I don't remember decapitation as a routine form of murder. Yet the killing of Aasiya Hassan seems to have elicited a very muted response.

When poor Mrs. Hassan's husband launched his TV network to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims, he had no difficulty generating column inches, as far afield as The Columbus Dispatch, The Detroit Free Press, The San Jose Mercury News, Variety, NBC News, the Voice of America, and the Canadian Press. The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle put the couple on the front page under the headline "Infant TV Network Unveils The Face Of Muslim News".

But, when Muzzammil Hassan kills his wife and "the face of Muslim news" is unveiled rather more literally, detached from her corpse at his TV studios, it's all he can do to make the local press page 26 of Newsday, plus The Buffalo News, and a very oddly angled piece in the usually gung-ho New York Post, "Buffalo Beheading: Money Woe Spurred Slay".

Sigh...

Welcome to the Great American Handout

On PJM today:

No ones arguing about how nice it is to share pizza, toys, and PB&J sandwiches. And Americans as a whole are a generous people. Back in 2007, charitable giving in this nation exceeded $300 billion for the first time. The problem is when a third party government bureaucracy takes your pizza, toys, and sandwiches and decides how much you get to keep and how much goes to the people they decide are worthy of enjoying the things you bought and paid for with the money you earned.

Thats not sharing. Thats redistribution. Its something that had its start with FDRs New Deal, reemerged during LBJs Great Society, and now seems poised to catch up to the socialist states that the American left has long admired in Europe.

Read it all here.

Will Ferrell: Proving Once Again that Leftwing Lunacy is Alive and Well in the Bowels of Hollywood

Is George W. Bush being allowed to ride off into the sunset and enjoy his retirement? Not if the rabid left has anything to do with it.

Apparently Will Ferrell hates George Bush so much that he's put together a "comedy" show on Broadway called "You're Welcome America: A Final Night with George W. Bush," complete with dirty sex gags and the usual "let's make fun of his speech patterns" jokes. It's a hot show that everyone wants to see, apparently.

And according to Kyle Smith of the NY Post, who had to sit through this, Ferrell uses a moment of silence for our fallen troops in Afghanistan and Iraq as a set up for his next gag.

This coming from a guy who makes his millions by doing things on screen like dressing up as an elf and eating spaghetti with maple syrup. Okay, I liked the movie Elf. But nothing infuriates me more than these idiots who live the good life, thanks in great part to those who put their lives on the line to keep America free - including clueless dunderheads like Ferrell, who exploit their sacrifices for a tasteless joke about a man whose policies kept America safe from attack for more than seven years after 9/11.

Smith says it best:

The military is the military. It isn't going to whine. It isn't going to organize a team of protesters to cause a ruckus in front of the Cort Theatre. It is just going to keep its head down and drive on. The military's finest men and women will continue to be ignored at best and loathed at worst. No Medal of Honor winner will get even one percent of the publicity Ferrell will generate with this show. For every hundred books written about the failures in Iraq, there will be one paragraph written about the post-surge turnaround.

But is it too much to ask for our war dead to not be ridiculed by wealthy comedians? Maybe those who fly on private jets, live in closely policed communities with surveillance cameras covering every inch of their property and send their kids to private school don't understand that there is such a thing as public security, and that it isn't a joke.

I suppose, though, that jokes about Bush will have to sustain the left for the next four years, as no one dares to make any jokes about The One.

I'd say, "Stay classy, Will," but I'm afraid he probably didn't have any class to begin with.

Parents of USS Cole Victims Refuse to Meet with Obama

And who the hell can blame them? After The One signed orders to not only close Gitmo but also to stop the pending trials of those behind terrorist acts such as the bombing of the Cole (Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri) and 9/11, it's no wonder they feel betrayed.

Diane McDaniels, mother of Cole victim James Roderick McDaniels, said, "Nothing he can tell me will make me feel any better." What is even more galling for McDaniels is that she voted for Obama, about which she said, "I think I made the wrong decision."

Parents of Fireman Gary G. Swenchonis, Jr., Gary Senior and Deborah, also refused to meet with The One to hear his explanation. "Why attend a meeting when you already know the inevitable outcome?"

Why indeed? The entire episode is a disgrace. Our military men and women are obviously less important than paying back the political extremists who voted you into office, and less important than the opinions of leaders of European nations who couldn't care less about us unless they need us to send them aid.

Hope and change my ass.
