The anti-war lobby makes the connection between Iraq and Israel

Many of those demonstrating against the War in Iraq have long sought to make a connection with Israel whom they see as the root cause of all the problems in the middle east.

The conflict in Lebanon has finally given the anti-war protestors the opportunity they've been looking for, and the emphasis has now moved from Iraq to Israel. You only have to look at the Stop the War coalition's website to see what I mean. This group started off as being opposed to the war in Afghanistan, then moved their opposition to the war in Iraq, now their main focus is on Israel's "war crimes". You'd be hard pressed to even find the word "Hezbollah" on their website. The Stop the War coalition fortunately are a ragtag group of extreme left fanatics and Islamists who often spend more time fighting each other than fighting Israel. Unfortunately, their sentiments are shared by much of Britain's mainstream media.
