CBS News aired excerpts of a video in which journalist Daniel Pearl told his captors, “My father’s Jewish, my mother’s Jewish, I’m Jewish,” just before they killed him. According to the report, aired Tuesday night, the video made it clear that Pearl’s captors killed him because he was Jewish and an American, not because they thought he was a spy.
