My christian daughter is dating a muslim
A large proportion of these killings happen in Ramle and Lod, “known as the backyard of Tel Aviv,” Salaime said, where poverty, drugs and illegal weapon use is rampant.
“Nobody believed that this might happen in the Christian community, around the church,” Salaime said.About a week before Henriette’s death, Henriette filed a complaint saying her mother had thrown a pot at her during an argument over her Muslim boyfriend, the Jerusalem Post and Haaretz reported.In the two weeks leading up to her death, authorities said Henriette fled her home, hiding from her family in other relatives’ homes and with her boyfriend’s mother.“They tend to solve problems inside their community without seeking for help.” Dating among young couples of different religious backgrounds is not uncommon in the area.But in some highly conservative families, such relationships are not accepted, Salaime said.That day, police found Henriette dead in her parents’ kitchen, with multiple stab wounds to her neck.
On Sunday, about a month after Henriette’s death, Israeli police charged her father, Sami Karra, with murder, Israeli media outlets reported.
The Jerusalem Post reported on Sunday that the Christian family had largely opposed the teen’s relationship with a Muslim man, who was incarcerated at the time of Karra’s death. I don’t believe I have the strength to stand on my feet and run away.” It was reported that Karra ran away to the home of her boyfriend’s mother, but she was found by family and taken back to her own home.
According to reports, Karra was contemplating converting to Islam after the release of her boyfriend, who was jailed on an unspecified charge. The Daily Mail reported that local law enforcement had the house bugged in the time leading up to the death of Karra, and that the night before she was killed, her father — who had once been a suspect in drug dealing — was overheard telling Karra’s mother, “Forget about her, let her go to hell.
They allegedly beat and threatened her in an attempt to break up the relationship, prompting her to report the violence to police, the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported.
Her boyfriend was in prison at the time but was scheduled to get out at the end of the week.
Salaime said she spoke to the boyfriend’s mother, who showed text messages from Henriette pleading for help, seeking refuge in her home.
