Daniel Pearl was added to the 30,000 names etched on the Holocaust Memorial Wall in Miami Beach to honor the American journalist who was abducted and killed by terrorists in 2002. Although Pearl's death and the Jews of the Holocaust were executed by people of different faith, language and agendas, there is a common thread of hatred, his father Judea Pearl told a crowd of hundreds as his son's name was unveiled Sunday as the first non-Holocaust victim to be remembered at the wall in Miami Beach. "The forces of barbarity and evil are still active in our world. The Holocaust didn't finish in 1945," Judea Pearl said. Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal's South Asia bureau chief, was abducted Jan. 23, 2002, while working on a story about Islamic militants in Karachi, Pakistan.
