The political affinities between the Kashmiri & Palestinian struggles are inescapable & profound & demand a coordinated, united movement to oppose. That was near impossible with a news blackout about the Kashmiri struggle. But the emerging #StandWithKashmir movement is changing all that overnight & the comparisons are being made right & left by political commentators. The Kashmiris knew this a long time ago & frequently discussed it, including calling their youth contingents the Kashmiri Intifada in respect for Palestinian Intifada.
