And in the Irony Corner...


Muslim leader in Buffalo loses his mind, wife loses her head

In one of the strangest ironies yet, the founder of the BridgesTV network that was formed to improve the image of Muslim-Americans in the United States was just arrested for beheading his wife after she had filed for divorce.

Muzzammil Hassan, a prominent Buffalo, New York area businessman, is charged with second-degree murder for beheading wife Aasiya Z. Hassan at his company’s office on Thursday (Feb.12, 2009).


Healthy Skeptic: It is not clear at this time if Mr. Hassan did this as an act of his religious convictions but beheading is a common way of carrying out honor killings in the Islamic culture so it is suspicious at the very least. And although faster, much more messy than divorce court!

I think we are understanding the culture more and more. It's just very unfortunate it had to be at the expense of Mrs. Aasiya Hassan's life!
