    I think I read it too fast to get all the particulars, but it seems to draw a picture of a very dysfunctional family that only used their political/religious differences as a basis for those differences. And it has been my opinion since information about the young men has been revealed that the older one led the younger one in dealing with their feelings of abandonment. From Dr. Cole's article, it seems the parents were living in fear because of the father's previous job, and the sons (at least the older one) didn't understand, and perhaps the parents were unable to explain, or just plain unavailable to him (them). I must admit that I'm really torn about the younger one. When his parents left the country, it seems he needed to cling to his brother. And now that brother is dead, he's alone and facing a zero future. OTOH, what they did (and he was an obvious willing participant) is so horrendous. This whole thing just sucks!
