India’s vote for Palestinian self-determination at the UN is not a minor contradiction to its colonial occupation of Kashmir or something to be lauded despite its sarcastic character. The resolution itself is a disgrace with its bantustate perspective oblivious to Israeli ethnic cleansing & genocide. India is mocking Palestinian self-determination & attempting to counter opposition to its Kashmiri policy. This must make Indian nationalists & some liberals feel quite smug but it doesn’t account for weapons sales, special forces training, & common colonial perspectives between India & Israel.
