Oxymoron of the Century

You really couldn't make it up.

It's been pointed out tonight on Twitter that there is an article on the "Stop the War Coalition" website here with the title "Time to go to war with Israel as the only path to Peace in the MIddle East."

The article was written on 5th May, so it obvously pre-dates the recent horrendous round of fighting between Israel and Hamas - both the thousands of rockets fired from civilian areas under the control of Hamas at Jewish civilians, and Israel's response.

You don't have to agree with everything Israel has done in response, (and I certainly don't, although I have more sympathy for Israel than I do for Hamas) to see that the idea of a campaign called "Stop the War" publishing a piece saying that it is "Time to go to war with Israel" as a means of obtaining peace is rather self-contradictory. What an oxymoron!
