Muslim woman slaughtered - yawn, what else is new? Well the beauty part is
following quote from the article:

"Muzzammil Hassan, founder and CEO of Buffalo, N.Y.-based Bridges TV which
launched in 2004 with a mission to show Muslims in a more positive light..."
"U.S. Muslim TV network founder charged with beheading wife
a..
NEW YORK (Reuters) - The founder of a U.S. Muslim television network has
been arrested and charged with murdering his wife by beheading her, the
network's Web site and local media reported.

Muzzammil Hassan, founder and CEO of Buffalo, N.Y.-based Bridges TV which
launched in 2004 with a mission to show Muslims in a more positive light,
was charged after reporting the death of his wife, Aasiya Hassan, 37, on
Thursday night.

After Hassan, 44, told police his wife was at the Bridges TV offices, in the
village of Orchard Park, they found her body there, beheaded, The Buffalo
News reported.

Authorities said Aasiya Hassan, with whom Hassan had two children, had
recently filed for divorce and had an order of protection mandating that he
leave their home as of February 6.

He was being held in a county detention center charged with second-degree
murder.

"Our deepest condolences and prayers go out to the families of the victim,"
a statement on the network's Web site said on Monday. "We request that their
right to privacy be respected."

"There had been problems before and there had been prior incidents of
physical abuse," Corey Hogan, whose law firm Hogan Willig represented Aasiya
Hassan in the divorce proceeding, told the newspaper."

Sorry to have missed you. If you get this, I was not clear in my post
above.

I was agreeing with you. I thought you might get some grief with your
inference about the beheading ... I was correct.

Have a great time on your trip ... if you get some access, tell us about it
while you are out and about.

If not, say hello with a long trip report when you return.

Have fun!

Common in that people are cruel and violent, yes.

We had this nice little story in LA several months ago where an LA
sheriff's wife was going to leave him for another. His solution:

http://articles.latimes.com/2008/oct/02/local/me-stab2

Still, I am wary of cultural relativism. I'm not quite sure if that's
what you're bent is, or if you just want to deflate peop;e's
tendencies to sensationalize (I'm fine with that).

Cultural influences should not be free from criticism, it's not all
benign harmless fun and games. And yes, that includes our own.

OK Howard, show me an example of an American Catholic, Christian or Jew who
cut his wife's head off because she wanted a divorce. BTW, I hardly post
every muslim outrate I could find. There aren't enough hours, and I don't
have enought staff, for that.

You know what I mean by 'every muslim outrage' and you know what I mean
when I point out that this case shouldn't be pointed to as one.

How about 'kitchen fires'? We don't dump on the Hindu's every time this
happens.

Irony. Multiple definitions. One of them: a combination of
circumstances or a result that is the opposite of what is or might be
expected or considered appropriate. Ex: it was an irony that the
firehouse burned.

Man's mission is to portray Muslim culture in positive light. Man
beheads wife. Irony

Whether it's typical or not, people make the association (see: Daniel
Pearl). And while you're lecturing, what is "typical" of radical
(important qualifier you chose to use there) Muslim culture?

What 'makes' the story is that he beheaded his wife. If he'd shot or
stabbed her we likely wouldn't be reading about it. We are talking about
a man who wasn't right in the head and since he picked what we are
thinking of as 'the muslim way' we are reading things into it. Of course
it's ironic, imo, but it's still a common end result.

Uhh... you have to admit there is just a wee bit of irony and some

Then he beheads his wife.

I am not positive irony is the right word, but it is certainly interesting
that certain folks seem to find odd analogies in real world events.

You may be in for some trouble with your implication that "beheads his wife"
might in some way be a reference to something that some might misunderstand
as being "typical" of radical Muslim culture.

Well bucko, cutting your wife's head off because she wants a divorce is not
"common in all cultures". Neither is throwing acid in young girls faces
because they want to go to school, stoning young girls to death because they
have a boy friend or having them whipped and sent to prison because they
were raped. It's also not "common in all cultures" to go on murderous
rampages because of a cartoon, beauty pageant or book. It's also not
"common in all cultures" to demand that a man be killed because he wants to
change religions. Yep, good ol' islam, the religon of peace and tolerance.

A line from a standup on comedy central --

If you've never contemplated suicide you've never been in love.

If you've never contemplated murder you've never been divorced.

You're late jacks! Story is posted about a muslim guy who cut his wife's
head off and it takes you damn near two hours to jump in and defend the guy,
