Memorial Event for Daniel Pearl (english)
20 Feb 2003
On the one year anniverary of Daniel Pearl's murder, we need to come together.
MEMORIAL VIGIL FOR DANIEL PEARL

An interfaith memorial for Daniel Pearl (1963-2002)

**This Sunday, February 23 at 5 p.m.**
First Parish Church, Harvard Square
(3 Church Street, by the Body Shop)

Sponsored by the American Islamic Congress, ADL, and First Parish Church

With readings by Imam Khaleel Mohammed (Professor of Islamic Studies at Brandeis University), local artists, and community leaders.


One year ago this week, a gang of thugs in Karachi, Pakistan, brutally murdered Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in the name of Islam. This act of terror was a shock to the world, not only because it showed the grim face of religious intolerance, but also because Mr. Pearl – a bright, curious young man – was the victim.

Please join us on this sombre anniversary, as we recall: the urgent need for confronting all forms of hate-speech and intolerance; Daniel Pearl’s shining example as a bridge-builder among peoples; and that as our hearts and minds are preoccupied with resolving the crisis with Iraq, we remember that Daniel Pearl, son of a Jewish refugee from Baghdad, courageously sought cross-cultural dialogue and understanding.

The event is free and open to the public. Bring your family and friends. For more information, see http://www.aicongress.org/pearl or call 617-621-1511.
