Recasting The Daniel Pearl Story

Special To The Jewish Week

Terrorists come in all shapes and sizes — and all levels of wealth and education. In Dick Brukenfeld’s new play, “Blind Angels,” a Jewish journalist is taken captive in New York by a group of his former Yale classmates, who are planning a 9/11-style attack. As many liberals have done, the play questions our nation’s use of force, suggesting that American drone attacks have led to reprisals by terrorists. It premieres next week at the Theater for the New City in the East Village.

If Daniel Pearl could come back from the dead, would he be the same person? Would he be the universalist he was, or feel betrayed by the universe like a Holocaust survivor who witnessed the abyss? After all, Satan himself would laugh when we say that the hairless Anne Frank with a number on her arm still believed that killers, capos and collaborators were ìgood at heart.î
