Although Daniel Pearl was a fool (sorry -- but truth is truth) to think that an American Jewish journalist could stick his head into the mouth of the Islamic-Supremacist "lion" and come-out with a story and his life, but he was at least damned brave as well.
Daniel Pearl, American Journalist and Brave Man
Born: 10 October 1963
Murdered: 01 February 2002
His father writes an excellent memorial on the seventh anniversary of his son's brutal murder. It is hard to believe that it has been so long since this man's murder. It is equally hard to realize that his murderer has yet to face justice.
P.S. I woulda linked to the video of his head being slowly hacked-off with a rusty blade, but I had a bit of a hard-time finding it on the web. Probably woulda been too upsetting for the American people to see this -- it might make 'em angry. Can't have that. JWM
