Seven years ago this week, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl was murdered in Karachi, Pakistan, in a cruel crime at the hand of Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the al Qaeda thug now held at Guantanamo.
To mark the anniversary, Danny's father, Judea Pearl, has written a compelling op-ed for the Wall Street Journal. Pearl delivers searing criticism of many leaders, governments and institutions around the world -- including former President Jimmy Carter -- that have soft-pedaled the threat posed by jihadist terror groups and even made excuses for terrorist violence. I don't agree with everything Pearl has to say, but strongly recommend reading it.
