"The Jewish and Kurdish tragedies"

Found in "The Kurdish and Armenian genocides: from censorship and denial to recognition?" by Desmond Fernandes.

One lesson of both the Jewish and Kurdish tragedies of this century is that well-intentioned people may be far to slow in recognizing the reality of genocide despite vivid warning signs
Responsible world leaders should, indeed, show friendship for the Turkish and Kurdish poples alike, and do this by 'speaking the truth to power' and challenging rather than helping to perpetrate injustice

from "Pîroz be : A Jewish greeting to Mehdi Zana" by Margo Schulter
