We have seen again and again over the years that Islamic supremacists never take responsibility for anything they have done, but instead constantly point fingers at others and claim victim status. And so it is with Muzzammil Hassan, the founder of Bridges TV, a network designed to show the true, peaceful face of Islam, and was doing it quite well until Hassan beheaded his wife in its studios. Neither the Buffalo News nor any other mainstream media outlet will explore the abundant evidence that this was an Islamic honor killing — an ugly result of the contempt for women, and approval of violence toward them (cf. Qur’an 4:34), that mars so much of Islam’s teachings about women.
“Beheading suspect says jail deputies tortured him,” by Matt Gryta in the Buffalo News, November 17 (thanks to Mark):
A court hearing Wednesday on whether a television reporter must turn over notes of an interview with accused killer Muzzammil “Mo” Hassan instead became a forum for Hassan to accuse his jailers of torturing and plotting to kill him.
Hassan asked a judge to “fire” Sheriff Timothy B. Howard because of the alleged actions of sheriff’s deputies in the Erie County Holding Center, claims that a Sheriff’s Office spokesman called “preposterous.”
Hassan, 45, who is awaiting trial on charges he murdered his wife in Orchard Park last year, told Erie County Judge Thomas P. Franczyk he was attacked and beaten by 16 jail guards — whom he referred to as “white Nazis” Ã‘ [sic] Nov. 10 and last Thursday. He also claimed he had been “waterboarded” in the jail.
Oh yes, prisoners are routinely waterboarded in American jails.
“I don’t feel safe,” Hassan told the judge….
Just imagine how safe his wife must have felt.
Erie County Undersheriff Mark N. Wipperman, who has overall command of all jail operations, said Hassan “has been a troublesome and problematic inmate” since his February 2009 jailing.
What a shock!
“Mr. Hassan’s diatribe today in Judge Franczyk’s court is preposterous, and the conduct he described in these absurd allegations will never be tolerated in the Erie County Sheriff’s Office. Mr. Hassan has been treated fairly and humanely since the inception of his incarceration,” Wipperman said.
Hassan, jailed since he turned himself in to Orchard Park police, is accused of beheading his estranged wife, Aasiya Zubair Hassan, 37, on Feb. 12, 2009, in the cable television station they founded. The homicide occurred a week after Aasiya Hassan began divorce proceedings.
Franczyk also reserved decision on a prosecution request for the notes and memos of a WGRZ-TV reporter who conducted a Sept. 8 jailhouse interview with Hassan. In that interview, Hassan reiterated earlier claims that he killed his wife in self-defense because he was a victim of “battered spouse syndrome.”…
