About the culture in general the Muslim -- -- yes.
And so that she would.
Understand where she was walking into.
Teaching well I offered to go to the library and pull all of them all the information because this is prior to all of us having computers -- them she coliseum cannot promise -- -- read -- we'll study.

Everybody was tough and then eighteen and it is.
-- -- But there was something -- big -- go Artrell remembers from that day.
I walked out onto the parking lot.
Of the church.
To get something in my car.
And before I could even turn around and get back into the church.
Another one of his siblings.
Hasn't married -- It was weird.
It was the strangest thing I just like I'm a -- crazy did you get the impression.
At this site -- family the men in the family.
We're looking into an area western women American women for -- purpose.
I saw an access.
Into this country.
Just latching on to any American citizen yeah.
Why do you think he -- you honestly I hope now.
This crossed my mind maybe -- -- green card.
-- no right after we got married like.
We went down and did his papers were screen car.
Whether it was four love where the chance to stay in America.
You can't dismiss as a sham of marriage that would last more than twenty years and provide three children.
TC says she tried to get pregnant immediately.
And thirteen months later gave birth to a son they named him.
It was during her pregnancy to -- says her relationship with Yasser turned bizarre even frightening -- And I was like a couple of months pregnant is.
And -- We -- joking around and all of a sudden he just liked grabbed me about -- throat because.
Like I had touch back at his neck and he's I don't ever touch me there.
From that top -- I did I hear that it wasn't right at us.
You know -- went down as -- And more and more and more.
-- Every now and then they -- -- it was.
Every other day or every 34 days every other day -- -- -- was like every day.
Every day he would speak.
What would -- do it scrap.
-- -- -- dishes and that -- just left out.
What I had -- the cut he had back yeah into the corner.
-- and he told me don't ever break anything else and his house that he hit you with his fists.
I have not let it worry he -- me.
Why would he do.
He said that he hit every -- preakness.
My mom and dad let me marry him that fifteen years out.
And that they didn't let me in hitting terrible because if they did they when they get it to him.
It's and then of course he has to teach me how to be a good -- did you ever tell any of your family members.
-- -- -- If you told me that I deserved it but this actually did think it that's what I deserved.
A year after Islam was born their second child a girl -- -- arrived.
Another girl Sarah quickly followed completing this site -- family.
Did Yasser won his children being raised in an Islamic household.
He wished his kids -- race.
And before he had kids without that -- that that would be -- But if they wanted to change when they got -- that would be fine too.
But it would not be fine -- Greg.
No I mean and Sara grew up to be American teenagers high school beating and all the -- their father he had some ideas about that.
And that -- about to see.
We'll be right back.
To -- -- of Texas just told you how she -- Yasser -- -- from Egypt.
TSE was only fifteen at -- time Yasser nearly twice her age she says he made her a lot of promises.
Promises he did not keep.
Here again -- here.
When we first got married -- work.
Most -- my muscles and done all the work and why wasn't he working he -- -- in the heated words.
In my heyday he guy it was not like.
Being in my money it was his money.
And when I -- -- My money was disappointed that they have.
TC says early on they were living on this piece of property youngsters family owned in Covington Texas.
And that it was anything but the king police friend he promised her.
What did you live in and -- camping trailer what was that like.
It was horrible we had no running water and then one.
And then this aides decided that they wanted to it's so caught house which was actually sat and that was what over his head open and and there was -- rim and with -- world seem that flew over at the back and it had dirt tour.
It was not much better.
And no plumbing -- without plumbing no heater no air conditioner.
We had to go over.
Into the trees basically and to a stolen goods they restroom or ticket -- -- Condit that they -- home.
What would you use for Waterford shower what -- -- And you go to the bathroom in the same hole.
-- this week promised you when you get married now.
And the story gets even darker.
While living in Covington to -- filed charges alleging that -- sexually assaulted a mean and -- They were nine and eight years soul.
Did you ever ask answer about it.
What he said originally that -- -- competitive there had.
You think that's true now.
Did you leave him with -- -- -- left.
And eventually went back to and why.
But the -- -- to have.
-- Still it.
To -- in -- also says she felt pressured to return to Yasser because her family was being harassed.
He would follow my dad news work it would come -- -- Are there the night and I was just scares that -- was gonna happen to brush him to.
-- Less than a month later TC filed a motion to dismiss the charges.
No one knows when Yasser if he molested the girls as for disease claimed that the site needs a -- channeling her we only have confirmation from two deceased sister on that murderer.
It's the whole family means like a pac ten dollars you get a stray dog that just on a pack gets a whole panic -- -- -- that.
The Brothers are.
There are photographs.
-- -- Saudi holding a knife to your throat he -- They get that -- -- ever loved him apart this so they get us.
This this would have to -- -- can.
Why didn't you report -- to police.
If they take him it's going to be words when he gets back out did your husband carry a gun.
Did he ever threaten you with the gun Guantanamo was asleep.
And he -- there and told me.
To get my -- to get out as factor 8:30 in the morning and it was code outside anyways just a way that it back at me you know.
There are other pictures.
You dressed up.
And holding out.
Asarco rifle he forced to cut it does not want.
I couldn't question him.
He was saying he was serving as.
And a woman has a right to question yes.
He would always get this look at his -- and when he would get this look at -- I I knew.
-- -- -- And disturbing.
Bring this home videos in the snapshots you've got those from -- mother to -- yes hours of videotape and we're about to show you a lot more evidence some of it especially in light of what happened to a -- and Sarah.
Is quite disturbing that's next yes.
After the break.
I mean and Sarah -- needs from what we know pretty athletic Smart.
What do we know about their father Yasser -- he.
A lot more after Gregg Jarrett investigation.
Federal and city under the thumbs.
One thing we know for sure about Yasser -- he'd is that he liked his video camera what's your language everybody.
Looking for a while he seemed to take it everywhere.
Because I knew I'd do it.
Working as a cab driver he shot all sorts of things from the car window his Middle Eastern music.
Playing in the background.
He spent a lot of time shooting himself to this clip goes on for minutes.
But it's the TP you know his daughters that -- it it's.
It is pretty -- Like -- big.
That really seems to border on obsession.
-- -- -- -- -- -- Well when he secretly recorded them on the street in their room in this park and in the backyard.
This -- And at work.
Here Yasser is parked outside the supermarket.
During Sarah's evening shift as a cashier and also in a car are her brother -- Islam and sister -- -- The mood seems light.
But listen closely to what -- says about Sarah and customer.
She's related -- the customers.
But he has to harder stuff.
You drove it grounder that she went her position to have.
This is an alien thought that.
Announcement that he's -- Aminu has had enough of that -- that hi.
-- -- -- -- -- -- and Sarah had grown ended two beautiful American teenagers.
That Yasser driving a cab in to see working as a cashier.
The site -- were now living in this modest home in the middle class city of who was -- Texas.
The girls went to the local high school nearby and they played sports and -- it did well enough academically to qualify for college scholarships.
But of course they took an interest no surprise in boys and vice Versa.
Good to -- says that -- Yasser very uneasy.
Did Yasser powerful.
Pool with him.
And Sarah that they could not -- American boys.
They could be Americans that they had been wants.
You help it's kind of been the rules -- mean when they tell me at it.
Saying anything to Yasser about it I just wanted to him to live a normal life and that would include dating boys of their choice exactly.
-- -- -- -- -- a parking lot at them.
Burger -- across from school it's -- sit there and watch and see when they got up the bus if they were talking to somebody.
Montana Serra had a tennis game and he went miniature she went and took an estimated she was actually.
Participate and attack us he would go on their room and problem on their arm candy good to do.
I have went home one day I mean as I can -- had a taste of that.
And that's what she tell me that.
He's being gone -- -- program.
And she had a -- but that she was right back and forth who won -- her good friends and that's basically -- found out that she had a boyfriend.
Tennessee says just -- went from tailing the girls with a video camera.
To actually blogging the inside of -- mean his car with a hidden audio recorder and.
I mean I had a 99 -- tourists.
And because car had been hit to air -- come out.
And he pretty in the air and you couldn't tell it so.
Any time that anybody would talk it would you know turn on.
That recording apparently confirmed his suspicion it's a -- had a boyfriend.
And then what -- -- -- confront her with.
-- -- -- -- And and she taught him that it was a planned.
Whether he believed -- or not.
Tennessee says Yasser would not risk letting his daughters and up -- non Muslim husbands.
Yasser planned on marrying off -- -- and Sarah in Egypt.
Was he going to a -- the marriage.
He would like fun guy and I -- you say yes or no.
But it wasn't -- -- then like we sat down and like we discussed because he thought that he was in control of everything.
In this video -- shot while visiting Egypt his family discusses future weddings.
May god bless you on your family.
And I would hope one day will have -- and -- -- -- -- and sweating.
We had this conversation even openly even with -- -- That.
-- -- when -- marry somebody from open air and he said well you know had to marry somebody from over there but they still had been.
By the fall of 2007.
Both the -- and Sarah now eighteen and seventeen years old we're DD and Hispanic boys.
What happened he would take their phone to call.
From their I think I answered Hebert right sat in Hamburg that the girl -- -- curl and I think he knew that he was at a 100%.
Spare according to to see both boys asked -- and Sarah to narrate that and that girls except it.
They didn't dare tell their father.
This December approached to -- says Yasser became increasingly.
And Hewitt in last night.
And I went to the store.
Hewitt let just me and that girl -- who is on and -- car he had to go and the more that he was -- and -- -- and I was.
Scared that he would you know find.
You know that they did have the -- friends.
And I didn't know what the consequence could be you were afraid the -- would severely hurt.
Mean of course there.
I was here that he would hurt us.
She called me out words and she said that.
She had to say yes sir she was crying.
And that yes -- head.
-- and they killed the girls in and she called me Christmas Day.
And said that she had left.
Through Christmas Day.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Sarah's boyfriend.
And from there we went to beat us -- -- I was just want to get out of that area.
But it can't just my -- house.
They stayed for just a few hours and kept running until Oklahoma.
Where one of the boyfriends had relatives.
Had a general promised him.
Had since we've had.
Been -- By that time -- told police his wife and daughters we're missing.
And that he had been angry with them -- and a possible boyfriend.
In the meantime to -- says his brother -- scenes started calling.
His -- just call Yasser.
And -- -- -- if he doesn't understand why you take the kits.
It's so we called yes -- what was said in that comes just they come back home that that our house.
And that if we -- want him there that he would leave.
And that -- -- at school affairs school it's very important and I can't just separate them from their house and take him.
And then he Todd says Sarah.
And he -- told -- -- it is time that we were just gonna go back.
The -- -- out so the girls willingly.
Went back yes.
-- they fear what would happen to them.
No because that would make when we talk to yes -- it was like everything was okay.
I mean it was like.
Think that that had to happen it.
Everything was not okay.
Far from it.
Fox News reporting honor killing in America returns after the break.
Welcome back to Fox News reporting honor killing in America.
I'm Bill Hemmer.
Before the break you heard Jesse -- -- -- -- story how she fled -- with their daughters and -- and Sarah fearing their father would harm them.
Which she says he convince them to come back.
To -- -- center -- first -- -- -- those stayed with their boyfriend for two more days.
She came home.
New Year's Day 2008.
As Gregg Jarrett now reports her father Yasser.
Was there waiting.
She went ahead and he was standing and he kissed her on the forehead.
And voters say he's glad that she -- back home what he did that I have seen.
A tear kept out of space.
I hope time that -- married to him I've never seen here at this man -- I don't think anything about as -- -- maybe attack because his family is back and then went.
She said -- -- him well say Esther said we're gonna go eat this.
So he decided to take him out for something to eat.
And I tell you let it go with ten.
He said no I just want to talk to the girls.
There will be back -- a little bit it's.
And think anything of it.
TC says just -- -- and Serra got -- youngsters borrowed taxicab.
And drove ball.
She thought to this Denny's but -- apparently had different plans.
The media sat in the front seat Sarah was in the back.
The police theory of the case is that Yasser drove them fourteen miles from their home in -- still to this area right here las colinas.
At some point in time he pulled the car over and put it -- park pulled out a gun and began firing.
Somehow during the shooting -- managed to call 911.
Now we'll we'll human.
What's going -- yeah.
He didn't do -- go.
After that call we sent units to the area and saturated -- -- that we thought calls coming from.
-- -- -- The police came here or what happened they said -- he's got about what tape.
-- casinos and Sheehan shot at them.
Congress -- that turns its.
And a total debt.
My daughter's let's -- their dead and they were going to activities do.
TC says she called adjusters brother -- and.
And ask where yes what this is Andy said he didn't know -- and he said yesterday when a race horse her -- At -- horse.
To terrorist plotters.
We're not talk to my sister and she was telling me that she was on her way to that are replaced apartment and that -- -- -- -- morning -- she's gone and the first words out of my mouth was.
-- had to say and then I'd say where does that mean I had she says she's with thumb and I've said it again and -- to -- -- -- -- -- -- Before police could find at -- and Sarah.
911 operators received another call this time from a cab driver at the omni Mandalay hotel in las colinas.
Look at the look at then there -- too concerned either dead or people on the left.
-- -- did -- -- as far as Stiller.
Hernandez who had -- career.
That he doesn't know virtually didn't they are good so I believe it's scary shock and anger but they can't find the driver.
Police believe -- announcer after shooting his daughter's drove to the omni Mandalay hotel.
-- the cap and then somehow.
-- -- -- I don't -- test that question every day how could.
This to people -- haven't types.
There is going.
Had no contact with Yasser -- since the murders now.
No messages no communication else.
To -- was in close contact with Yasser -- Brothers.
In fact she says she and Islam ended up living with Boston right after the murders.
Because his mom was far closer to the site needs that did to -- family.
And she felt there was nowhere else to go.
But in those two months to -- says she learned that some of the site needs not only believes Yasser killed his daughter's.
But had good reason for doing so.
But they told you that -- that just care of them talked.
And -- -- around them.
Months that I was.
They've picked up on things when his Brothers taught me that I was really like to -- that.
He left their bodies from -- -- -- for me to put my girl's breast.
If it was him nobody would find his -- Who -- this issue.
-- should tell us and he has five groups.
Do you think islamists had any contact with his father since the murders.
-- -- -- I don't know.
-- -- says Islam her oldest child is now living in Egypt and she rarely talks to him.
Let's have a -- this he said that his hat -- to call it their banks get what it.
-- -- Is it true that is long said at one point in time after the murders.
That his sister's got what they deserve because they broke the rules.
And they knew it he did tell me.
They did not deserve to have their pets counts because.
They were -- Mexicans.
And -- -- that states have their culture.
That at this point.
And mind boggling to to think that there are people who believe the father is right to kill his own daughter.
In order to protect the family's.
It is and will be talking about that coming up -- is one thing we should make clear while police do believe youngsters -- he committed these murders.
Nobody else and his family has been charged with anything nor have they been named suspects in the murder so we have to -- side of the story did you try and speak with other members of the family on the sigh he'd -- well we certainly try that's coming up.
After the break.
Are you yes seems citing.
-- I speak with -- on camera.
You know where your brother is.
-- so I need is a wanted man wanted in connection with the murders of his daughters -- -- and Sarah.
But -- been on the Lam for more than two years.
He's been on the case just as long.
TCO -- he -- Texas still cannot fully grasp how her life ended up like this.
Her two daughters shot -- their father the prime suspect.
So we turn to someone who could bring perhaps a broader perspective.
This woman and I beyond her seat Ali.
They were fast -- -- -- -- -- It would enable us prostitutes.
They weren't enabled us bringing shame on the family.
You may have heard of Percy Ali.
Born a Muslim in -- she was subjected to female circumcision as a child.
And fled -- Europe in 1992.
After refusing an arranged marriage in 2003.
She won a seat in the Dutch Parliament.
The following year she wrote and co produced a film.
About islam's subjugation of women with director Theo van go.
Van Gogh was murdered by a radical Muslim group pinned a note to bang goes chest vowing that -- Ali was next.
She fled again to America where she lives under round the clock security.
But continues to be a forceful critic of Islam she has been following this site -- case from the beginning.
She has no doubt who killed the girls and why.
But -- by they've chosen lifestyle.
Shame that the fact if shame about.
And to get rid of that Smith you know women that stigma.
He has to count that to clean cleanse the -- felt obliged.
To -- duty.
Due to found under Islamic law which b.'s belong in that culture of honor actually.
No actually -- the -- is part of being a Muslim.
The action and -- she says her -- -- is wrong.
Qureshi a Muslim runs a nonprofit group that helps which she concedes.
Is a growing number of American women who are victims of honor attacks.
In recent years for instance there have been reported on her -- taxi in Peoria Arizona.
Atlanta Georgia and Rochester New York all allegedly committed by Muslim men.
Qureshi insist such violence is not about religion but culture.
It's I'm strange that how it seems like more of promotion if you might be coming up costs may be.
The -- back -- but I've come across all of kind have come across Hindus and Sikhs.
So it's a cultural thing you know that history of that land is so ordered to report and you that -- infants came -- it was a conscious that permeated that system.
Islam gives might -- -- -- to force me into marriage.
Islam gives my husband -- had to beat me.
-- -- says it's nonsense to blame honor killings on pre Islamic culture.
Instead of Islam itself.
Those tribal and -- those tribal values weapon and the -- into religion -- -- and 14100 years later.
We see -- Spat on on the pocono.
And we -- -- practiced.
And that her CL -- says leads to another thing that makes such honor killings unique.
Think of it as something honorable and -- -- is a family affair.
Percy -- not only believes Yasser site he'd killed his two daughters but -- he had help.
With his getaway.
And on -- killing he -- competitive action necessary it's escape was completed before all.
No matter students.
And it has marks because he -- -- act which brother was closest yes.
Anything at Kurt is -- it was always them it was always the one involved.
Just -- -- Heatley is in New York.
We paid him -- visit in July of 2008.
Shortly after Fox News began its investigation.
Into the case.
Are you I guess -- citing.
May I speak with you on camera.
You know where your brother is the.
Did he killed his daughters.
And then yes scenes I -- Drove off.
Where he was -- too happy with you would any member of the sites and we talk with you very.
We tried to contact every one we could and certainly if any member of the family is watching and they want to talk.
Give us a call -- the idea that this was an honor killing as you pointed out.
That seems to make some people pretty and easy including major about to see law enforcement -- so.
It's a real question did political correctness get in the way of solving this case that's next yes.
After the break.
-- out of the wishes of the Muslim community that was offended.
Because we called an honor killing us.
Police believe Yasser -- murdered his two teenage daughters -- -- and Sarah.
-- New Year's Day 2008.
They still have not found him.
To seal society -- officer's wife in the girl's mother calls this crime and honor killing.
We've heard of honor killings in the Muslim world should we worry the practice may be spreading in America and do we need to face that fact head on.
Here again Greg's year.
If we -- to go often necessary.
And call the -- on occasion.
That would require more investigation into Muslim communities across the United States and that.
Would be speaking taxing.
Muslim groups that trying to do -- this type thing by protecting minority.
-- -- -- -- -- Because they giving -- prize -- To group writes this is about individual tracks.
Three year investigation.
-- -- you been able to determine why.
-- are saying it would kill his two daughters we won't know the motive.
He tells us what it is and then we've got to weigh that out but sometimes you learn the motive by talking to relatives and they said this is an honor killing.
And it's a forest that goes it's all speculation.
And it's not just local cops who refuse to call this an honor -- he it's the FBI to.
Ten months after the murders of -- -- and Sarah.
The FBI issued this wanted poster for Yasser containing the words honor killing.
But days later those words were removed.
The FBI -- to that criticism and complaint and removed it from there from the publicity they capitulated.
The FBI is sensitive to charges.
Of of discrimination is sensitive to charges that they are not.
Sympathetic to the larger Muslim community the FBI needs the cooperation.
Of the Muslim community in this in this country and -- to carry out.
We've repeatedly requested an interview with the FBI for this story -- declined.
But we did talk with Steve pomerantz who served as the FBI's counterterrorism.
Chief from 1985.
To eighty feet.
Being out of the wishes of the Muslim community that was offended.
Because we called an honor killing us.
-- -- learned firsthand about honor killings during in 1989 investigation.
Office suspected Palestinian terrorist -- nine Isa.
The first time I remember -- hearing the term honor killing we had a case.
-- in Saint Louis where an individual who we believed to have been associated with the up in the doll.
Terrorist organization which at that time was probably.
Most violent of the Middle East terrorist organizations.
He and his wife.
