Muslim Chick Tries to Honor-Kill “Western” Husband; Male Reporters Focus on Her “Pretty, Petite” Looks
Looks like I may have to eat crow on my post about “the problem with chick reporters.” In that, I criticized female Chicago Tribune reporters for drooling over an Islamic terrorist”s “striking eyes.” But apparently, this problem extends to male reporters covering Muslims, too.
“Pretty, Petite” Muslima Honor-killeratrix Rabia Sarwar
As reader James points out, focusing on the criminal’s looks is an equal opportunity offense (for reporters of both genders) . . . when it comes to covering Muslims.
Two male reporters for the New York Daily News, Rocco Parascandola and John Lauinger, in their report on attempted honor-killer Rabia Sarwar, raved over her looks, too . . . as if being an alleged beauty somehow lessens her crime. They repeatedly make references to Sarwar as a delicate flower: “a soft-spoken Muslim woman, ” “the pretty petite Sarwar, 37,” ” ‘She is very soft-spoken.’”
Uh, guys, think with the other brain. More on this attempted Muslim honor-killing, yet the latest of many on U.S. soil I’ve covered over the years on this site and elsewhere:
A soft-spoken Muslim woman tried to slit her Staten Island husband’s throat as he slept – enraged that he made her eat pork and wear sexy skirts, officials said.
“It’s time for you to die!” screamed Rabia Sarwar as she pounced on hubby Sheikh Naseem, sources said.
He woke early Wednesday to find her straddling his chest and hacking at his neck with a knife.
The burly 41-year-old, a teacher at Susan Wagner High School, overpowered the pretty petite Sarwar, 37, and grabbed the weapon. . . .The Pakistani-born Naseem was not a practicing Muslim
“She is very soft-spoken, very low-key,” the woman said. “I would not have dreamed anything like this would happen.”
But authorities said she was furious that Naseem stayed so Western: “She’s a very devout Muslim and she felt that he got her to marry him under false pretenses,” a source said. “He doesn’t really observe any of the traditions of Islam. She says he forced her to eat pork and wear short skirts.”
She also claimed that his favorite author is Salman Rushdie, reviled by devout Muslims after writing the prophet-bashing “The Satanic Verses.”
A book that bashes Islam . . . by a Muslim? Well, then we should, for sure, kill him.
The more Islamic immigrants we let into this country, the more “Arabic” charter schools (which are really Islamic) we allow to flourish here, the more we pander to Islamic backward mores, the more of these honor kilings and attempts we will have. It’s just that simple.
