DANIEL PEARL'S DEATH
Thoughts on political pornography
View the tape.
Warning: this video is extremely graphic.
This is the single most gruesome, horrible, despicable, and horrifying thing I've ever seen. The outrage I feel as an American and a Jew is almost indescribable. If there is anything that should galvanize every non-Jew hater in the world -- of whatever faith, or of no faith -- against the perpetrators and supporters of those who committed this unspeakable murder - it should be the viewing of this video.
That our government and others throughout the world, who have had this tape for some time, have remained silent is nothing less than an act of shame. We, as a nation and as individuals, should, at minimum, write the president and our congressional delegations and call for the immediate withdrawal of all support of any nation or group that does not loudly and resoundingly condemn this act and who does not openly commit itself to route out from its midst those who support this and other such heinous acts of pure, cold-blooded murder.
