Black comedy

I now realise that Pontius Pilate was showing solidarity. Marvellous.
Solidarity with those fighting for their democratic and national freedom is our obligation. We can best discharge it by demanding that the government at long last takes its hands off the Middle East and its people, leaving them to settle accounts with their own rulers.
Surely that should read, 'leaving rulers to settle accounts with their own people' (ed).

The Middle East doesn't seem to agree:
The Arab League endorsed the imposition of a no-fly zone over Libya on Saturday and recognized the fledgling rebel movement seeking to topple Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi as the country’s legitimate government, increasing pressure on Western powers to intervene
