Despite the savagery and abject inhumanity, the family's honor was preserved from the facebook scarlet letter. That's what's important, right? Obama say, "respect it!" Oh, and by the way, I do not believe this girl fell to her death after her father set her on fire. I believe he threw her off the roof.
"Convinced by her mother and brother, she decided to return home for a short visit during Ramadan but not before expressing concern for her safety to her friends and counselor at the hostel. "
"A Father lit his Daughter on Fire for her Facebook relationships" By Ariel Ben-Moshe, Jerusalem Online, August 13, 2013 (thanks to Jim)
The Jerusalem court indicted a man for lighting his daughter on fire, causing her death because of the relationships she had with men via Facebook. The father invited his daughter over for a barbeque where he proceeded to pour a flammable substance on her, and causing her to fall from the roof of their home to her death.Today (Tuesday) the Jerusalem District Attorney filed a serious charge against Sliwan, 53, a resident of the city for the brutal murder of his 17-year-old daughter. The indictment describes the complicated relationship between the father and daughter, which inevitably collapsed after the father discovered his daughter was engaging in romantic relationships with men she met through Facebook. He claimed her actions were dishonoring the family, and pushed Silwan to murder his daughter. In the days leading up to her death, the young girl was living in a woman’s hotel in Akko. In a phone call with her father, she told him she had several financial debts, to which he replied by telling his daughter to come home. Convinced by her mother and brother, she decided to return home for a short visit during Ramadan, but not before expressing concern for her safety to her friends and counselor at the hostel.
Within second, the fire overwhelmed the 17-year-old, who, startled, got up from her seat and went to the edge of the roof. She lost her balance and fell off the roof, landing dead, at the bottom of the stairs of the building.
