'I am Jewish'

In his criticism of Arun Gandhi's comments that Jews and Israel are to blame for a "culture of violence," Judea Pearl mentioned some of the last words of his son, Daniel, who was beheaded by Islamic radicals six years ago. Last February, Daniel's parents talked about what it meant for Daniel to be a Jew in this video, which opens with his voice.

Daniel Pearl's most memorable words, "I am Jewish," gave life to a book by that name that carries reflections of some of the world's most recognizable Jews.
