Malaysian muslims aren't too keen on Chelsea visiting their precious land because they will be bringing Israelis Avram Grant and that defender fella who rarely plays. Israelis are banned from visiting Malaysia while jews can come and go.

It's a daft policy bred in ignorance...Israeli Christians and Muslims are banned while American and British Jews can enter!

Anyway these beards have sent a petition to the Malaysian Home Minister saying

'If the Israeli footballers are allowed entry, the government would be seen as being insensitive to the feelings of the Palestinian victims of Israeli ethnic cleansing and atrocities, and the majority of the Malaysians who sympathise with them and support their struggle for justice and peace,' the petition says.
Mohd Azmi Abdul Hamid, a spokesman for the group, said on Monday that the signatories would consider staging protests during the tour if the government refused to back down.
'People are very, very angry with the decision, so we are going to have discussions on this,' he said.
The last time Israeli athletes were allowed in Malaysia was for the 1997 ICC Trophy cricket tournament, which resulted in street protests in Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysia - Truly Asia.

Chelsea had arranged a friendly against a Malaysia Select in July but whether they go ahead with it now remains to be seen. Certainly if the mad mullahs win it will damage the Malaysian tourist industry!
