All he was doing was trying to get somebody's opinion, and his captors ignored this, simply using him in some outrageous campaign. I admire his bravery and have a deep respect for him, not as an American but as a human being.

All my thoughts & energies to his family, especially his wife. May Daniel come home safe, and soon.

Dear God,

Please let Daniel Pearl become reunited safely with his wife, comfort him and his family, protect all the journalists who come after him to Pakistan, and let those who have captured him come back to the straight path.

O ye who believe! stand out firmly for God, as witnesses to fair dealing, and let not the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: that is next to piety: and fear God. For God is well-acquainted with all that ye do.
