WE HAD something to say that we knew we should say together!" So speaks the widowed Mariane Pearl, asked by Time to comment on how she felt about Angelina Jolie's playing her in the film about the murder of her husband, journalist Daniel Pearl. Mariane went on to add, "I have heard some criticism about her casting, but it is not about the color of your skin. It is about who you are. I asked her to play the role -- even though she is way more beautiful than I am -- because I felt a real kinship to her. She put her whole heart into it and I think she understood why we should do this movie.

Artists invariably find ways of addressing painful events and issues, helping us to do the same. A case in point is the gruesome murder of journalist Daniel Pearl in Pakistan in February 2002, a few months after 9/11. To honor Pearl's memory, his sacrifice and his values, a foundation was created by friends and family to promote a variety of events around the world. Pearl, who played violin, is commemorated annually in concerts like the one being held this week at Goucher College as part of a 10-day global observance, Daniel Pearl Music Days/Harmony for Humanity.

WASHINGTON -- Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the suspected planner of the Sept. 11 attacks, admitted during a military tribunal last weekend that he personally killed Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, according to a revised transcript of the hearing that confirmed long-held suspicions about his role in the slaying. The al-Qaida operative said he cut off Pearl's head after the journalist was kidnapped during a reporting trip to Pakistan in 2002. "I decapitated with my blessed right hand the head of the American Jew, Daniel Pearl, in the city of Karachi, Pakistan," he claimed in a statement delivered by a U.S. officer serving as his personal representative.

THE KIDNAPPING and brutal murder of Daniel Pearl have shown Americans once again (not that any reminder was necessary) the barbarism and senseless violence that Islamic extremism breeds. Daniel Pearl, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, was whisked into oblivion after agreeing to meet with a source in the Pakistani city of Karachi who had ties to an Islamic terrorist group. His abductors hustled him into a car in downtown Karachi, and he was never seen again. In the days that followed, the American public heard ridiculous conditions for Mr. Pearl's release, saw videotapes of him in shackles and handcuffs, and tried to sort through the shady world of Islamic thugs in Pakistan.

Reporter's murder gives us no reason to condemn Islam Neither The Sun's reporting of Daniel Pearl's slaughter ("Suspect in Pearl kidnapping says consulate attack planned," Feb. 23) nor its editorial "The death of Danny Pearl" (Feb. 23) noted the gruesome irony that pictures of Mr. Pearl's death reached us on Islam's Eid al-Adha - the feast of the sacrifice. This, the most important holiday of the Islamic calendar, commemorates God's merciful remission of the demand that Abraham sacrifice his son. But no godly mercy came forth for Mr. Pearl.

The transcript of a secret military hearing at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, released by the Pentagon last week quoted Mohammed as claiming responsibility for planning 31 al-Qaida attacks and plots from the suicide hijackings of Sept. 11, 2001 - which killed nearly 3,000 - to a 2002 shooting on an island off Kuwait that killed a U.S. Marine. Mohammed also said he beheaded Wall Street Journal journalist Daniel Pearl in Karachi, Pakistan. ?I was responsible for the 9/11 operation from A to Z.? Khalid Sheikh Mohammed

A Mighty Heart has the surface tension of a first-rate docudrama but neither the passion nor the vision to encompass its powerhouse subject, the kidnapping and execution of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. This Karachi, Pakistan-set drama begins to unfold after Sept. 11 and ends in early 2002. You can guess why the producers asked Michael Winterbottom to direct it. This versatile, dizzyingly erratic British filmmaker brought a riptide realism to In This World (2003), his potent, topical tragedy about the plight of Afghan refugees.
