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

I just saw the program. This program had been remade, and more powerful than the original showing. It gives a little background into Islamic honor killings. I do think the FBI was willing to cover up the murder rather than disclosing their cover. I have sympathy for poor Tina, since her goal was to be an American teenager rather than a jihadist. Her actions including dating, dating an Black man, working, clothing styles, etc. were symbolic of her rebellion.
