An alliance of 21 Muslim groups is angry the Malaysian authorities have given permission for the Israelis to visit the country with the London club.
Malaysia has no diplomatic relations with Israel, and the Malay Muslim majority is strongly pro-Palestinian.
Malaysian citizens are banned by their government from visiting Israel.
