Malaysia–Palestine relations

Malaysia–Palestine relations



The Relations between Malaysia and Palestine are strong brotherly relations.[1] Malaysia has strongly stood up for the rights and freedoms of the Palestinians and has supported the struggles of the Palestinians.[2] Malaysia also has refused to recognise the State of Israel until a peace agreement is reached.[3] Anti-Semitism is very common in Malaysia. It was ranked the top Asian country where the most people hate Israel. Approximately, there are around 3,000–5,000 Palestinian students in Malaysia,[2] many Palestinians also choose Malaysia as a country for temporary refuge.[4][5]
