Beheading in Suburban Buffalo?

Something I found while scouring the Buffalo News sources for info on the plane crash of last evening… found in The Buffalo News: [1]

Orchard Park police are investigating a particularly gruesome killing, the beheading of a woman, after her husband — an influential member of the local Muslim community — reported her death to police Thursday.

Police identified the victim as Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37. Detectives have charged her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, with second-degree murder.

“He came to the police station at 6:20 p.m. [Thursday] and told us that she was dead,” Orchard Park Police Chief Andrew Benz said late this morning.

Muzzammil Hassan told police that his wife was at his business, Bridges TV, on Thorn Avenue in the village. Officers went to that location and discovered her body.

Muzzammil Hassan is the founder and chief executive officer of Bridges TV, which he launched in 2004, amid hopes that it would help portray Muslims in a more positive light.

Apparently, Bridges TV is among other things, a satalite TV channel, curently deployed on Galaxy 25 
(was known as Intelsat Americas 5 (IA-5)) at 97.0oW, on 12053 Vertical frequency transponder 19. Their stated goal? Read for yourself. [2]

I think we can register that one as an epic FAIL.  Reality rears it’s head and the religion of peace rides again.

For those who don’t know, Orchard Park is a bedroom to the south of Buffalo, and is most famous for being where the Buffalo Bills lose their games.

I suspect and suppose that this cannot help but raise further questions about the compatibility of Islam with modern civil society.

Am I being too harsh? Tough.

You tell ME… In what other religion/cultural subgrouping does beheading figure so prominently?
