I owe this one to Gayle at the Dragon Ladies Den.
Take a look at these two. I see two attractive great kids who obviously enjoy life to the full, probably a joy to be around, with a streak of crazy (the fun kind of crazy that is) and a joy to any father’s heart.
That is unless the father is a follower of a cult based on the words of a medieval warlord with a messianic complex, and a puritanical control streak based on sexual obsession. This appears to have been the case.
From Fox News;
Authorities announced a $10,000 reward Friday for information leading to the arrest and indictment of a father accused of shooting his teen daughters and leaving them to die in a taxi.
An ongoing manhunt is under way for Yaser Abdel Said, 50, of Lewisville, Texas, wanted for shooting Sarah Yaser Said, 17, and Amina Yaser Said, 18, in his taxi Tuesday night. Police say they don't have a motive for the shootings, but believe a domestic issue may have led to the deaths.

Two teenage girls were brutally murdered by their Father - Yasir Abdel Said, a Dallas Taxi-cab driver last week. He hunted them down, and reportedly shot both of them execution style.
Their crime? They dressed in Western clothes, listened to Western music and "had boyrfriends."
From the Dallas Morning News, 01/06/08:
Gail Gartrell, the sisters' great-aunt, said Saturday that Mr. Said had physically abused the two girls for years. Around Christmas, the girls' mother – Ms. Gartrell's niece – had fled because of Mr. Said's threats to kill the girls after he learned they had boyfriends, she said.
"She ran with them because she knew he would carry out the threat," Ms. Gartrell said. "This was an honor killing."
She said her niece returned after Mr. Said told her that he would move out so they could reconcile. Within a few days, she said, the girls were dead.
On the night they were found slain, one of the sisters called 911 from a cellphone and said she was dying. Police soon found the two dead of multiple gunshot wounds in a taxi at a service entrance of an Irving hotel.
The real enemy of islamofascism is western culture. Do these two look like they wish to don burkas and be submissive? No way, they loved the western lifestyle or appeared to. This is the real threat we offer to Islam, if we have the guts to stand up for our own way of life. Those who gain a taste of liberty, will hold on to it, and resist the oppression advocated by extreme Islam, face it, they will kill their own children to fight us.
The global jihad is based on bigotry, not blowback.
