NYTimes Contrariness

Herod was a King of Judea.

He ruled a Jewish Kingdom.

Everybody knows that.

When he died, he was buried in Judea, in the Jewish Kingdom he ruled.

Ah, but read on:-

Mr. Netzer had been excavating the site of Herodium, a palace complex about seven miles south of Jerusalem and situated in the occupied West Bank

So, Herod's Herodium is now "occupied" territory.

When will this ever stop?
