Daoud Kuttab is Proven Wrong

Hey do you remember when Daoud Kuttab wrote this:
"Both offers [to be released into Gaza] were rejected by Shalabi through her lawyer....The idea of deportation, temporary or permanent, touches a nerve with the Palestinians. Since its establishment in 1948, the state of Israel has prevented Palestinians who left to avoid the violence from returning to their homes."
Unfortunately for him, Ms. Shalabi has now accepted exactly that deal and ended her hunger strike. So I guess the idea of deportation wasn't such a bad thing after all.

This is why you shouldn't try to speak "for" people, Mr. Kuttab. Because sometimes they end up proving you wrong. Just like Khader Adnan, who you called a hero, and just like the Palestinian Authority, whose incitement you tried to defend.
