""God holds the decision: sometimes we are called to resist with stones, sometimes with guns, and other times through hunger and perseverance," Khader Adnan, a leader of Islamic Jihad and survivor of a 66-day jail fast, told Reuters from a Jenin refugee camp." [emphasis mine]Hey do you remember when Daoud Kuttab and his followers were telling us about how Khader Adnan was an innocent baker cruelly imprisoned by the evil Israelis? Now even Reuters and the left-leaning Huffington Post freely admits that he is not only a member of Islamic Jihad but a leader of them. Don't expect an apology from Daoud Kuttab though. Here's another member of the hunger-striking "victims:"
"Dialogue with them is not possible, there's no alternative [to the hunger strike]," said Qahira Saadi, a mother of four sentenced to life in prison by Israel in 2002 for her alleged role in a suicide bombing, but released in exchange for Shalit. "This is a battle, and hopefully it will come to a good end," she said.Wow. How peaceful. As for the article by John Wight, I'll break that into the next post. Stay tuned.
