Some apparently pro-Israel commentators have recently spoken about Rojava (positively). But there’s a big problem. They fail to mention the PKK’s longstanding support for (and from) Palestinians, while also failing to mention its criticism of Israel’s alliance with the Turkish state, and of the ideology of Zionism. That shows either their dishonesty, ignorance, or wishful thinking.
Even apparently well-intentioned support recently from Israeli media outlet Haaretz seems to have forgotten the PKK and Rojava’s stance on Israel.
These were the scenes in Palestine when the PKK’s leader was arrested in 1999:
In recent years, volunteers in Rojava have been consistently clear that ‘Free Palestine = Free Rojava’ – that all oppressed people deserve freedom, and that they must unite to further their common cause.
