The Irony wasn't lost on me either -

I wonder if this incident will undermine his efforts.

DiPirro said the couple had "physical confrontations off and on" for their entire eight-year marriage that had escalated to death threats. The grounds for divorce were "cruel and inhuman treatment," DiPirro said, referring to multiple prior incidents of abuse.
"We were worried about the situation becoming volatile," DiPirro said.



*sighs, shakes head*

Not worried enough, apparently.[:/]

What kind of defense is he planning, that was so different than the one his attorney had in mind? :S

In the UK one is innocent until proven guilty, is it the opposite way around in the US? Secondly if he did do this what has him being a murderer got to do with him being a Muslim? Did he murder her because of some religious reason? Is he using Islamic teaching as some sort of defence? If not his being a Muslim has nothing to do with being a murderer. As you are well aware Christians, Jews, Hindus, Atheists and Agnostics and every other religion on earth contain people who are domestic abusers. To link him being a self proclaimed muslim with being a domestic abusive murderer is simply intellectual laziness.

Wasn't aware SC was a court. Nice attempt to stifle the discussion, though.

If you're trying to counter Western stereotypes of Muslims, beheading your estranged wife isn't exactly going to help change the outlook.

History is against them, and rightfully so, abusing women is a Muslim thing...

No, it's not. It's an ASSHOLE thing that can't be laid at the feet of any particular religion or race.



It is an ASSHOLE thng, yes. It is also a stereotype that the middle east and prodominantly muslim countries have earned.

That depends on how the media wants to spin it.
In theory, yes, it is supposed to be that way.

follow-Up...

in our local newspaper this morning...
"Buffalo Area TV Executive convicted of beheading wife."


*** The founder of a Muslim-oriented New York television station was convicted Monday of beheading his wife in 2009 in the studio the couple had opened to counter negative stereotypes of Muslims after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
Muzzammil " Mo' Hassan never denied that he killed Aasiya Hassan inside the suburban Buffalo station the couple established to promote cultural understanding. A jury deliberated for one hour before rejecting his claim that the killing was justified because he was long abused by and afraid of his wife.
Hassan who is stocky and more than 6 feet tall, acted as his own lawyer druing the trial. He said nothing when the verdict was read. His reaction was blocked from view by a line of sheriffs deputies and court officers standing behind him at the defense table.
The Pakistan-born Hassan, 46, had been served with divorce papers a week before his wifes body was found at the offices of Bridges TV in Orchard Park, where the couple also lived. Hassan was arrested after walking into the Orchard Park police station Feb 12, 2009, and calmly telling officers his wife, who was slender and several inches shorter than him, was dead.
Prosecutor Colleen Curtin Gable said Hassan bought two hunting knives less than an hour before the attack, parked his luxury vehicle out of view at the station and then hid in wait, inside. During a 37 second frenzy that began when Hassan's wife walked through the door, he stabbed her more than 40 times in the face back and chest and decapitated her..."..***

Sounds like the right headline. Sounds like a nutcase, and I don't believe that any religion has a monopoly on those.

Also sounds like he had the ideal defense counsel :o
