"Why is this man only being charged with unpremeditated murder," asks TVC Executive Director Andrea Lafferty. "Police have yet to find the weapon used to cut her head off, but it's likely that he planned this killing and lay in wait for her. How many people routinely carry around swords or cutting weapons big enough to lop off a head? Would Muzzamill have been charged with first degree murder only if he'd used a wood chipper or a guillotine?
"Are police going easy on Muzzamill because he's a Muslim? Would cops treat evangelist Pat Robertson the same way if he chopped off his wife Dee Dee's head at the 700 Club headquarters in Virginia Beach?"
Muzzamill had a long history of mistreating his wife.
This is why she finally decided to divorce him and seek a restraining order to keep him away from her. This is Muzzamill's second wife.
According to Islam expert Daniel Pipes
, Islamic theology teaches that a Muslim who has his or her head cut off cannot enter into Paradise!
A battle is looming over whether or not to interpret this crime as an honor killing or domestic violence. An honor killing is done to a woman who has shamed or embarrassed her family or husband. In this case, Muzzamill had claimed she had no right divorce him - even though she was his second wife.
In addition, the whole concept of Bridges TV was fraudulent. It pretended to be a moderate voice for Islam, yet was endorsed by some of the worst Islamic radicals in the U.S., including Nihad Awad, Ibrahim Hooper, Iqbal Yunus and Louay Safi.
Phyllis Chesler has written on the topic of domestic violence versus honor killing: "Are Honor Killings Simply Domestic Violence?"
Cutting Off Heads Is Standard Practice And Religious Duty In Islam
The Qu'ran (Koran) contains numerous verses
that encourage Muslims to behead, mutilate or slaughter those considered to be infidels. Here are a few:
5:33-"The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution (by beheading), or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;"
8:12- "I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off."
47:4- "Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), strike off their heads; at length; then when you have made wide Slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives": thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens."
9:123: "Oh ye who believe! Murder those of the disbelievers and let them find harshness in you."
2:191- "Kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from wherever they drove you out."
5: 45-- "We ordained therein for them: "Life for life, eye for eye, nose for nose, ear for ear. Tooth for tooth, and wounds equal for equal."
2:193- "Fight them on until there is no more tumult and religion becomes that of Allah"
9:29- "Fight those who do not believe in God and the last day... and fight People of the Book, (Christian and Jews) who do not accept the religion of truth (Islam) until they pay tribute (Zizziya tax) by hand, being inferior."
8:17-It is not ye who Slew them; it is God; when thou threwest a handful of dust, it was not Thy act, but God's....." (Allah is a real merciful indeed!)
"As more Muslims immigrate to America, we will be seeing more and more cases of violence against Muslim women - including beheadings," said Lafferty. "Islam poses a serious threat not only to American security, but to women who are treated like slaves or property in Islamic homes."
