Seems someone else believes that:
An upstate TV exec who set up a channel promoting Muslims as peace-loving people was stressed about his failing business in the days before he allegedly chopped off his estranged wife's head, a friend of the couple said today.
...The couple was in the process of divorcing after bouts of domestic violence, her lawyer told the Buffalo News.
Hassan, who founded Bridges TV in 2004 to counter anti-Islam stereotypes following 9/11, turned himself in to cops Thursday in the Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park. Police later found his beheaded wife in the TV studios. He was charged with murder.
"He was worried about the station's future," said Dr. Khalid Qazi, a friend of the couple and president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council of Western New York... "He was stressed, but this has left me absolutely shocked..."
...Qazi said the killings went against the teachings of Islam and damaged the image of Muslims that Hassan worked to promote.
"Domestic violence is despicable, and Islam condones it in no way whatever," he said. "Murders are being committed in the US every day by people of all faiths."
The truth, that's BS and I don't believe it.
It takes a mighty fierce hate or religious support to behead your wife.
And if one is religious, his hate should have been tempered.
Why didn't this man behead this woman?

An adultery saga at a Fifth Avenue church has finally ended. Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church's former pastor, the Rev. Thomas Tewell, was sued in 2007 for sexual harassment by Rachel Vione, a parishioner who said she became involved with the married preacher. Vione reached a settlement with Tewell and the church last month for undisclosed terms.
While Muslim leaders have urged against applying cultural stereotypes to the crime, advocates for women linked the killing to attitudes in Muslim societies.
“This was apparently a terroristic version of honor killing, a murder rooted in cultural notions about women’s subordination to men,” said Marcia Pappas, New York State president of the National Organization for Women.
She decried the scant national media attention paid to the story, which broke the same day as the commuter plane crash that killed 50 people in Clarence.
While domestic violence affects all cultures, Muslim women find it harder to break the silence about it because of a stigma, she said.
“Too many Muslim men are using their religious beliefs to justify violence against women,” she said.
