The circumstances of Daniel Pearl's death were so vile and unfair that to this day the news story still haunts me. The strength and peace he showed while in the most horrific circumstances continues to amaze me.
Daniel Pearl October 10, 1963 – February 1, 2002 Ten years ago today, American Jew Daniel Pearl was murdered by Islamic militants for being an American Jew. It is incredibly difficult to put in words the grimness of what transpired. His last words were, "I am a Jewish American". Rest in Peace, Daniel Pearl. Hero.
