In the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians and Turkey with the Kurds, it is interesting to observe that Israel is openly supporting the Kurdish cause and Turkey is backing the Palestinians. While Turkey and Israel pledge their support for these minorities in each other’s countries, they oppress ‘their own’ minorities. In the Netherlands both conflicts lead to heated debates that cause divisions between different groups and communities. This division in turn creates an obstacle for the emergence of a broader solidarity movement within the Netherlands. In this program, which is organized by The Hague Peace Projects, DocP and Amsterdam Peace Initiative, we will analyze the problematic attitudes, and explore the questions and narratives that can open the way for a more intersectional perspective in the Kurdish and Palestinian issue, towards a broader solidarity movement.
