Muslim Inbreeding: Impacts on intelligence, sanity, health and society

“I plead insanity”

First an update on the interfaith bridge builder Muzzammil “Mo” Hassan who founded Bridges TV to project a positive, moderate image of American Muslims:

New York: Moderate Muslim who beheaded his wife may be able to claim he was crazy after all

And why not?

Everything was going just great until he beheaded his wife in the Bridges studios. Now he wants to use the insanity defense, which was previously disallowed. But there is ample precedent for jihadists being declared insane in the U.S., so what’s one more?

Muslim Inbreeding

(Not necessarily related to the article above!) SENNELS

Massive inbreeding within the Muslim culture during the last 1.400 years may have done catastrophic damage to their gene pool. The consequences of intermarriage between first cousins often have serious impact on the offspring’s intelligence, sanity, health and on their surroundings

The most famous example of inbreeding is in ancient Egypt, where several Pharaonic dynasties collapsed after a couple of hundred years. In order to keep wealth and power within the family, the Pharaohs often married their own sister or half-sister and after a handful of generations the offspring were mentally and physically unfit to rule.

Behind the Bush in Buffalo: Newspaper calls gruesome wife killing and beheading a "tragedy", praises Islamic propaganda channel

Yep. Islam. Where would we be without it?  But the comments  are rather, -shall we say: sceptical?-  and show that the American public is slowly getting the message.  However, the Buffalo News seems pleased that there is an Islamo-propaganda channel in the neighborhood  that intends to “balance” the misunderstanding of Islam….

Bridges TV rebuilds from tragedy

By Jay Tokasz/Buffalo News

It was supposed to be the year Bridges TV turned the corner and became a legitimate voice on television for American Muslims.

Instead, the Orchard Park-based television network struggled just to survive following the horrific killing last February of its cofounder, Aasiya Zubair Hassan.

A year after Zubair Hassan’s death and the subsequent jailing of her husband, Bridges TV Chief Executive Officer Muzzammil S. Hassan, on a murder charge, the digital cable and satellite network is still on the air.

New York: Moderate Muslim who beheaded wife barred from using emotional-disturbance defense

No Insanity Jihad on this one. “Mo” Hassan is the “moderate” Muslim who started Bridges TV to present a peaceful, moderate image of Islam — that is, until he beheaded his wife in its studios. “Judge rejects planned defense, delays in beheading case,” by Matt Gryta for the Buffalo News

Hassan’s new defense attorney, Frank M. Bogulski, today told reporters that he is “confident” he can get an acquittal for Hassan on an unprecedented defense combining psychiatric elements and justification based on claims Hassan was “a battered” spouse who was verbally abused and humiliated by his wife.

Oh, well, then! He was right to behead her!

Bin Laden’s son: “My father has a religious goal. He is controlled by the rules of jihad.”

He is really an okay sort of guy, you know –   “He only kills if he thinks there is a need.”

But…but…I thought he was a Misunderstander of Islam — indeed, the Misunderstander of Islam par excellence — who had twisted and hijacked the Religion of Peaceâ„¢!

Bridges TV: Disconnecting people through beheading

The “Mission statement” has not changed. It still reads, “Bridges TV aims to foster a greater understanding among many cultures and diverse populations… (DA’AWA)  we seek to become a unifying force that can help people understand our diverse world through education and entertainment.”

Aasiya Hassan was gouged with hunting knives before she was decapitated

* Best comment so far; from infidel:

 You just don’t understand this rich and ancient culture. By removing her head he was unburdening her from the yoke of oppresssion which is our decadent western ways. This man is neo-feminist.

Police revealed the decapitated wife of a Muslim TV network founder in New York was stabbed several times with hunting knives and may have been alive as her killer beheaded her – and, despite the brutal slaying, her husband will only face charges of second-degree murder.

As WND previously reported, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, who has been charged with beheading his wife, Aasiya Hassan, 37, was the recipient of an award from the controversial Council on American-Islamic Relations, the self-described Muslim civil rights group that boasts of its influence on U.S. government policy.

The Hassans founded Bridges TV in November 2004. They described it as a satellite news and opinion channel aimed at portraying Muslims in a positive light following the Sept. 11 attacks.

Hassan is accused of cutting off his wife’s head at his Buffalo, N.Y., station Feb. 12. However, sources have now confirmed that the woman was gouged with hunting knives before she was decapitated, the Buffalo News reports.

Orchard Park police said Hassan is not a hunter, and would not say how he may have obtained the knives. Authorities have refused to discuss details of the case, and are still investigating to determine whether Aasiya was alive while her murderer decapitated her.

Immoral Equivalence: Muslim Bridges TV Exec sez "Beheaded Wife of Network Founder "Has Given Her Life to Protect the Image of American Muslims"

“Beheading of Wife Poses Another Test for U.S. Muslims”

The torture never stops.

Self appointed spokesmen for the ummah are dumping steaming piles of taqiyya  (lies & obfuscation) on curious infidels, because they feel it is their religious duty to “protect and defend Islam” from scrutiny. 

* FOX is providing a soapbox to help poor misunderstood Muslims to explain that it was not an honor killing after all and that we got it all wrong

* Muslimahmediawatch goes into obfuscation overdrive, here

You knew it would only be a matter of time before the CAIR-types would try to spin this tragedy to their own advantage. These vultures never miss a chance to confuse the issue and try to preempt any honest debate about honor killings, mass Muslim immigration, and “stealth jihad”. Of course, the media and the cultural relativists will use their influence to make this story disappear down memory hole. Aasiya Hassan  didn’t give her life – it was taken away from her by her head-chopping, murderous hubby. Worst of all,  this woman contributed to her own death by continuing to whitewash Islam. 

“She has given her life to protect the image of American Muslims” says Faizan Haq, Muzzamil Hassan’s friend.

Great, she “protected the image of American Muslims”- Whatever. But Aasiya hasn’t given us infidels anything. In reality, she was more of a perp than a victim while she was alive. She was complicit in the jihad and in the spread of Islam.

Good riddance.

The Buffalo News:

A nationwide debate has begun among Muslim leaders and women’s advocates about what role religion and culture may have played in this awful killing.

That debate continues….

Robert Spencer isn’t buying any:

Really? All I see in the mainstream media are denials that religion had anything to do with this at all. Where is this debate?

Tim Blair adds a bit of sarcasm:

The beheading of Aasiya Hassan opens a window: 

“This is a horrible tragedy, but it gives us a window,” said Abdul-Ghafur, editor of the anthology “Living Islam Out Loud: American Muslim Women Speak.” “The next time a woman comes to her imam and says, ‘He hit me,’ the reply might not be, ‘Be patient, sister, is there something you did, sister? Is there something you can do?’ The chances are greater the imam will say, ‘This is unacceptable.” 

It’s a breakthough!

Rabbi Hirschfield Defends Islam From Honor Killing Accusations

Bridges TV Press Release:  “no one here could ever imagine that this may happen to our beloved colleague.”      (Gee, it couldn’t happen to nicer people…)

The beheading of 37-year-old Aasiya Hassan has all the markings of an honor killing, psychologists and Islamic experts tell, as the upstate New York woman’s husband awaits a preliminary hearing on murder charges.

Useful idiot watch:

…..Meanwhile, Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, a producer and host for Bridges TV who worked alongside the Hassans, said “now is not the time” to debate the cultural and religious context of the murder that appears to be an honor killing inspired by Aasiya Hassan’s desire to divorce her husband.

“There will be time for that later,” Hirschfield said in a statement obtained by “I will only say to those who leap to the conclusion that this kind of thing is intrinsic to Islam, ask yourselves if you think that drunkenness is intrinsic to Irish Catholics, or cheating in business is to Jews?”  (drunkenness and cheating doesn’t equal  beheading, Rabbi. I think your analogy sux. But anyhow, if now is not the time to discuss it, when suits? I will be happy to meet with you and discuss it right there on Bridges TV, deal? /ed)


Religious speculation upsets imam in case of beheaded woman

“Grieving Imam shocked and outraged” over linking honor killing with Islam

* Actually the imam is mostly outraged over kuffars who are connecting the dots:

“We’re all shocked. We’re all grieving,” said Mangera, imam of the Islamic Society of the Niagara Frontier. “To compound that, we have to face the difficulty of the religion of Islam being blamed for [the killer’s] personal actions. It was an individual person who did this act, for whatever reason. We don’t find any justification in the Islamic religion for any such violence.”

Mangera was upset about suggestions that Muslim attitudes, especially toward women, have been blamed for the Hassan killing.

* Clueless Police Chief buys it:

The people that I’ve talked to have said killing your wife or beheading anyone is not condoned in the Islamic faith,” Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz said Tuesday. “I haven’t found anyone to say it’s all right to do that under any circumstances. But it’s something we have to investigate.”

* Start now, Andrew. Start with educating yourself about Islam instead of listening to what Muslims tell you! Start here and read this here as well…

Muzzammil Hassan has been charged with second-degree murder, leading to many Internet and e-mail complaints about his not being charged with first-degree murder.
