Broken Bridges

From Fox News

Muzzammil Hassan, right, founder of Bridges TV, is charged with murder in the beheading of his wife, Aasiya Hassan, left, in Orchard Park, N.Y. [The] Muslim-American television executive who allegedly beheaded his wife days after she filed for divorce remains jailed without bail following a court appearance in western New York.

In order to promote one of it's programs later this evening, Fox News posed this teaser question: [paraphrased] Muslim TV exec beheads wife: Was this an exercise in religious belief or was it murder?

I'm sorry, but I am incredulous and outraged by this blatant display of total ignorance. If the most conservative news channel in the US can even pose this question with a straight face, is there any hope for us in this GWOT? Are we seriously going to debate this issue? Have we slipped that far down that slippery slope of multicultural pc nonsense? Have we abandoned all reason, all common sense, merely to show our respect to a bloodthirsty cult that poses as a legitimate religion? Have we learned nothing in all this time? Are we determined to continue our roles as useful idiots? Will we just ignore all that we have learned about the treacherous duplicity of the Muslim world, the evil machinations of its political arms, most noticeably in the recent scandals of that serpent's nest CAIR?
How can we seriously consider such a question? How can we still be this naive, this clueless, as to the nature of the enemy in our midst?
Was it murder? My God! What are we becoming? Are we now going to change our very vocabulary to suit our most recent -- and most dangerous -- immigrants?

To pose this as an either/or question presumes that there are two possible answers. And to make that preposterous presumption is to denigrate everything we stand for.
Is there no end to our moral capitulation? - rg
