About the parents?

Reader comment on item: Guarding the Secrets: Palestinian Terrorism and a Father's Murder of His Too-American Daughter

Submitted by S. (Canada), May 24, 2005 at 19:37

I remember seeing this horrible event on the news many years ago. It makes me very sad, because it hits home too close.

I have not read the book. But I would really like to know how the parents felt about what they did. How could parents choose to kill their own daughter only to erase the shame they feel in their arabic society. That is an extremely selfish evil act. Do arabic parents love their children or is all about honour?

How did Tina's parents feel about what they did?
