Israeli Christian murdered by dad in ‘honor killing‘ over romance with Muslim
An Israeli Christian has been charged with killing his teenage daughter over her relationship with a Muslim man.
Sami Karra allegedly murdered his 17-year-old daughter Henriette because he objected to her relationship with a Muslim man who was serving time in prison, according to Haaretz.
The paper reports that Henriette planned to convert to Islam for the man.
Henriette’s mother, Aliham, told the police her husband felt humiliated by his daughter’s behavior and saw it as an affront to the “family’s honor.”
The family repeatedly tried to get her to finish the relationship. Henriette was killed on June 13, two weeks after she left home because of violence against her by family members.
After leaving home she hid from them in a number of places, including at the home of her boyfriend’s mother. The family then threatened the mother, forcing the teen to find another place to stay.
