KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 28 — Boxer Ilya Grad has made history as the first Israeli to enter Malaysia, wave his country’s flag and leave in one piece, according to a news report from the Middle East nation.
Malaysia has no diplomatic ties with Israel due to the majority Muslim government’s pro-Palestinian stand in the long-running Middle East dispute.
Israeli news site Ynetnews.com reported yesterday Grad, 24, as starring in a sports reality TV show recorded in Malaysia, “a country which legally bans the entry of Israelis”.
It added he was detained for 25 hours during entry until Malaysia’s youth and sports minister intervened and handed him a special visa, but noted immigration refused to stamp Grad’s Israeli passport.[ lagi ]
