Once More Into the Breach

Finding Nonsense and Beating it Sensible

I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Not the Best PR Move

Muzzammil Hassan started Bridges TV in 2004 to help dispel the notion that Islam inspired violence.

"Every day on television we are barraged by stories of a 'Muslim extremist, militant, terrorist, or insurgent,'" Hassan said in the 2004 release. "But the stories that are missing are the countless stories of Muslim tolerance, progress, diversity, service and excellence that Bridges TV hopes to tell."

Last Thursday, February 12, 2009, Mr. Hassan called police to inform them that is wife was in his office and she was dead. When police arrived they found Mrs. Hassan had died from decapitation.

DiPirro said the couple had "physical confrontations off and on" for their entire eight-year marriage that had recently escalated to death threats. The grounds for divorce were "cruel and inhuman treatment," DiPirro said, referring to mulitple prior incidents of abuse. She declined to elaborate.

"We were worried about the situation becoming volatile," DiPirro said.

How Mr. Hassan will continue to help fight stereotypes of Muslims as violent killers will be interesting.

As is often the case with domestic violence issues, the victim takes out an order of protection or as it is sometimes referred to, a restraining order or peace bond. These pieces of paper are as helpful in preventing violence as a cease fire agreement is in preventing missile attacks against Israel. In both cases one is better off arming one's self and dealing directly with the problem when it presents itself.

See, the problem with Islam is not the pre historic mindset or the humiliation and subjugation, including beheading, of women and non believers. Its just that they get treated so badly in the PR area. Its a religion of PEACE!
