Malaysia Says We’re In Solidarity, But Are We Doing Enough To Help Palestinian Refugees?

A few days ago, Israel carried out dozens of airstrikes on the Gaza strip. While some might say that this is merely a response to Palestinian forces fired rockets into southern Israel, the truth is, this is but a latest chapter in a conflict that has been going on for decades, as Palestinians try to resist and fight back against the violent Zionist regime. 

In light of the latest developments, many International communities, including here in Malaysia have come together to show their solidarity for Palestine. But are we doing enough? 

Puan Sri Datin Norma Hashim, Treasurer of Viva Palestina Malaysia (VPM) and Ahmad Adam, a Palestinian refugee and community leader here in Malaysia, join us on the show to discuss.
