Wall Street Journal reporter Danny Pearl’s murder horrified and disgusted me as both a Muslim and a human being. The loss of his life is a loss to real journalism and to humanity.
By all accounts, he was not some virulent radio talk-show host or ignorant tabloid columnist. He was a professional; a truth teller. If the twisted individuals who killed him think they took down the enemy, they are terribly wrong. Because if there was any truth to the “causes” these extremists live for, Danny Pearl would have reported it. Rest in peace, Mr. Pearl.
