An Israeli Christian killed his daughter because of her love for a Muslim, police say

On the day after her high school graduation party, Henriette Karra, 17, confided in a relative her plans to become a Muslim for her boyfriend.

Henriette, an Arab Israeli, knew that her Christian family in Ramle, a city in central Israel, would be furious. Her parents had made it clear during Henriette’s year of dating her Muslim boyfriend, also an Arab Israeli, that they considered the relationship a shame to the family.

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. On June 13, she told her relative of her plans to be with him. The relative then called her father, telling him Henriette’s intentions.

That day, police found Henriette dead in her parents’ kitchen, with multiple stab wounds to her neck.

    What a tragedy. Again tell me how Islam exerts a positive influence again? I understand the parent’s fury but murder is evil.

    • It’s rare you hear about such a case. I can’t remember another. But if he’s guilty this is simply down to Arab culture taking precedence over religion. Remember that one of the founders of the PLO was Christian, tribally.

      • Watchman

        The Christian in the area behave a lot like the muslims, and this is from the necessity to do so to survive in a muslim run society. All the Christian families who let their sons and daughters convert and marry muslims for the last 1400 years have died out – only the rigid enforcement of their culture and religion have allowed them to survive as Christians. A tragedy certainly for the girl who might have later regretted her choice once she had fallen out of love with her criminal muslim boyfriend.

      • This will be milked by the popular press that is complicit in ignoring Islamist violence against women.

    Isn’t pretty no matter who does the ‘honor’ killing.

    So that makes the score, what?, 1 to 1.460167 million over the past 100 years?

    • Watchman

      All it takes is for one so the SJWs and muslim apologist to triumphantly claim that islam is no worse than any other culture or religion: “See, a single honour killing by a Christian! You can’t now criticise islam for its myriad examples of honour killings.”

    The main difference is that in Israel, if found guilty the parents will be punished by going to jail like the murderers they are. The same cannot be said about Muslim countries.

    no loss there

    Hmm, maybe there is a way to fix stupid.

    • What, stab it in its 17-year-old neck? No thanks.

      • Dave

        Det cord then?

    Let’s just cut to the chase and recognise this is Arab culture and it trumps religious beliefs every time.
