A Spanish journalist has been given the Anti-Defamation League’s Daniel Pearl Award, which goes to reports who have made a positive contribution to public understanding of Jews and their religion. Pilar Rahola, who received the award in Boston, was praised for his treatment of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism. The Barcelona-born writer and former Spanish parliament member received death threats during the 2009 Gaza war for her support of Israel. The award is named after the Jewish-American reporter who was abducted and killed n Pakistan in 2002. Pearl’s parents Judea and Ruth described Rahola as “one of the most courageous and encouraging voices that we have heard from Europe in the last decade.”
