I didn't however say what you mistakenly claim. I said the differences are the "necessity for troops out now and the necessity to condemn an Israeli attack on Iran"

You translate this into "I support the occupation of Iraq and an Israeli attack on Iran then fine;"

Now admittedly in many people's book refusing to call and organise for troops out now may seem like supporting the occupation of Iraq.

I happen to believe that AWL members are sincere in not supporting the occupation but very confused and mixed up in refusing to organise for troops out now- it doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

I also believe you and Sacha don't support an attack on Iran- yet the 'refusal to condemn' line of Matgamna and others is very contradictory to the avowed (and no doubt sincere) lack of support for such an attack.

I'd have thought it would have caused quite a lot of members of the AWL to be somewhat aghast and holding their heads in their hands saying why oh why do some of our leading members have to come out with this sort of thing- but that's up to you.
