      Malaysia Lifts Quotas on Christian Travel to Israel

      Malaysia has lifted quotas on Christian travel to Israel, AFP reports. Previously only 700 Malaysian Christians were allowed to visit Israel per year, with only 40 allowed per church.

      Malaysia bans travel to Israel for the Muslim majority, but allows it for Christians, who like Jews regard Jerusalem as holy.
