Transnational Ties: Another Piece on Pak-American, Muzzammil Hassan

This time in the Washington Post / Newsweek “On Faith” blog,  Aloysious Mowe also brings up what she sees as the unwarranted linking of Aasiya Zubair’s murder with Islam:

If Aasiya Hassan had been murdered with a gun, or by some other means other than beheading, her death would have been treated as just another murder. The manner of her dying, however, dredged up all the fears and fantasies about Islam that now pollute our consciousness. Beheading has become part of our cartoon-strip understanding of Islam.
