When it comes to Palestine and Kashmir, India and Israel are oppressors-in-arms | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


When it comes to Palestine and Kashmir, India and Israel are oppressors-in-arms

In a back alley in downtown Srinagar, the capital of India-controlled Kashmir, a string of words splashed on a wall reads: "Long Live Palestine". Nearby, "Free Gaza" screams from a shutter on a store.

Across a tiny gulley, graffiti on a sidewall has been scratched off. If you stare hard enough, the words "Free Kashmir" rise like an apparition.

For many Muslims around the world, Palestine holds a special place in their political consciousness. Al-Aqsa Mosque, after all, is one of the most important sites in Islam. Those on the left, whether millennial radicals or grey-bearded Marxists, have also supported the Palestinian cause over the zealous imperialism of Zionist settler-colonialism, ethnic cleansing, displacement and war-mongering.
