‘Product Of Israel’ Illegally Sold in Malaysia

ByThe Counter Journal

MH FOOD Organic owned by Matahari SDN BHD caught importing dates from Israel

According to Malaysia’s AlHijrah News, packaged dates are actively listed on one of the famous e-commerce sites in Southeast Asia.

Upon further investigation, they found the “Product of Israel” physically on the shelves of one of their stores in the major port district of Selangor.

Malaysia has historically been anti of the apartheid state of Israel

The country has historically been outspoken in its condemnation of the apartheid state of Israel.

In 1974, then Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak banned trading with the apartheid state of Israel. Even individuals with an Israeli passport are banned from entering Malaysia.

Since then, Malaysia has been clear with its stance on Palestine. Former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad is well known for condemning the apartheid state on international platforms. He is known as a prominent Muslim leader in the East, and an anti-semitic in the West.

MH Food denies importing directly from Israel

In a phone call done by AlHijrah News, an employee of Matahari SDN BHD claimed that the company does not import directly from Israel. The employee claims that it may have been one of their suppliers.

This raises more questions as the product itself shows a clear label of “Product of Israel”. And if it was supplied to them, it should not have been able to go through the official immigration channels.

Malaysian Government agencies are put into question

Corruption within the immigration agencies in Malaysia is not uncommon. The most recent scandal was the “accidental release” of over 100 illegal immigrants caught by Malaysia’s Royal Police.

Now, with products from Israel entering the market, Malaysians are calling for these agencies to be investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission(MACC).

Currently, there is no comment from the current Prime Minister of Malaysia, Anwar Ibrahim.

This is a first in Malaysia’s proud pro-Palestine history

For over 60 years of independence and going through 9 Prime Ministers, Malaysia has never had any dealings or products surfaced in their markets which are owned by the apartheid state of Israel.

The only local news reporting on this historic event is Alhijrah News. Other major news outlets older than Alhijrah News, have been silent on the issue.
