Not to be a know-it-all, but we should be scrupulous about distinguishing the detestable actions of Arab or Muslim political figures in support of India in Kashmir from the Arab peoples themselves. The Arab Spring uprisings, particularly in Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain, Yemen, Syria are among the most glorious political events & advanced the most progressive democratic ideals of our times–not to mention, the Palestinians. That they have been so violently repressed, including by foreign military force, speaks to their power. Any reckless formulations that identify government figures repressing these movements with those who so courageously fought them should be edited in tribute to those thousands of Arabs who died fighting for freedom or still fight on.
