Video: Akmal Saleh: 'Stop lying to us, we're not that stupid!'

June 17, 2024

Comedian Akmal Saleh spoke at the Magan-djin/Brisbane rally in solidarity with the people of Gaza on June 15.

He said that Israel's claim that it has “the right to defend itself" is a “blatant lie".

“They actually don't technically have the right to defend themselves against people they're holding prisoner," he said, but even if they did “it's still a lie".

“Dropping 2000 pound bombs on a civilian population is not self defence," he said.
