RESPONSE TO D ABOUT INFO ON PARENTS

Reader comment on item: Guarding the Secrets: Palestinian Terrorism and a Father's Murder of His Too-American Daughter
in response to reader comment: Info on parents

Submitted by Norie (Canada), Oct 14, 2005 at 23:43

What you said D, that the book left out many facts and that TIna was rebelling. Okay, she might have been rebelling in your eyes, however, the fact is that she was killed and that is not excusable. It's very unethical and mean on the parents' part.
As for her sister feeling bad and saying she was misquoted, well, she was taped at one point stating that her sister was a whore and would never enter her home, she also said (Also this was caught on tape when the house line was tapped) to her father that he ought to hire a hit man, to which the dad replied no that he must kill Tina himself.
There is no two sides to this at all. It's child abuse and all Tina wanted was to live her life freely which in North America one has the right to do. The parents were always beating her and even her friend Jeanne Chapman had said that Tina had come to school with a black eye, that her mother gave her. What kind of an excuse is there for any of this type of behavior? None!

A father shoud not be a person you should have to fear. Respect, yes, but he ought to respect the daughter too and protect her without abusing her.

I have lived in a traditional family myself and I know what it is like to be deprived of freedom and to want to leave home just to live your life. Trust me, if you have not lived this type of strict life, you don't know what Tina went through.

She had a right to live, marry whoever she chose in life and to do the things most American kids do. Her parents took that away from her by killing her. They will certainly pay for their crime and they in fact, don't deserve to live. No excuse for killing a child!

It's too bad her mum's death sentence got overturned and all she gets now is life in prison. At least that is what I last heard and read. Also too bad the father died in prison, I think he should have suffered longer in that jail cell.
