A Web of Evil

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

Submitted by PJ (United States), Nov 21, 2006 at 03:07

I first learned of this tragedy on the news, then read the book. At first I thought it was a murder committed because of her dating an American, like it was being portrayed on the news, etc. But after reading the book and recognizing some facts I knew personally, I came to believe that perhaps Tina was not killed for her relationships in America, but maybe for the information she had about the activities of her father and his friends in terrorism.

I recognised her father as a man I saw, at a grocery store in another city, the owner and other men. At another occasion, while I shopped I did hear this owner and his clerk talking in their language and the name "Tina" was said quite a few times. I always remembered it. After reading of the link to terrorism, the FBI taping, seeing her father with these men & some other things I know, I suspect Tina was harmed for what she knew. She became caught up in their web of evil.

From all you wrote in your comments, Tina seemed like a lovely girl. It's never fair when the young are struck down. But Tina did touch you all with her beautiful spirit and her memory lives on. God Bless you Tina.
