Sebelum terbentuknya Malaysia, pasukan bola sepak Malaysia dikenali sebagai pasukan bola sepak Malaya. Pasukan ini amat digeruni dan antara pasukan terkuat di Asia pada awal 1950-an sehingga 1960-an. Pencapaian terbaik Malaya ialah berjaya memenangi pingat gangsa Sukan Asia 1962 di Jakarta, Indonesia setelah menewaskan Vietnam Selatan 4-1. Selepas pembentukan Malaysia pada 16 September 1963, pasukan ini sehinggalah sekarang dikenali sebagai pasukan bola sepak Malaysia. Kegemilangan pasukan ini berterusan selepas pembentukan Malaysia. Malaysia berjaya melayakkan diri ke Sukan Olimpik 1972 di Munich. Dua tahun kemudian, Malaysia mengulangi pencapaian pada 1962 apabila sekali lagi memenangi pingat gangsa Sukan Asia 1974 di Tehran selepas menewaskan Korea Utara 2-1. Kejayaan pasukan Malaysia berterusan apabila layak berturut-turut ke Piala Asia pada 1976 dan 1980. Selepas itu, Malaysia sekali lagi layak ke Sukan Olimpik 1980 di Moscow tetapi kerajaan Malaysia memboikot Sukan Olimpik 1980 kerana membantah pencerobohan Soviet Union ke atas Afghanistan. Ini menyebabkan pasukan bola sepak Malaysia tidak dapat beraksi pada kejohanan tersebut. Kegemilangan dan kecemerlangan pasukan ini dilihat terhenti pada 1994 kerana berlakunya rasuah terbesar yang melanda bola sepak Malaysia. Ramai tonggak utama pasukan Malaysia yang terlibat dan sekaligus menghancurkan bola sepak Malaysia. Kebanyakan peminat mengatakan rasuah yang melanda bola sepak Malaysia merupakan salah satu sebab mengapa Malaysia gagal kembali ke era kegemilangannya pada 1970-an sehinggalah penghujung 1980-an.

Simultaneously, and secretly, it makes promises to the Zionists for the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine (the Balfour Declaration). Jews are only 8% of the population at this time, and so the British government starts bringing in Jews from Europe into Israel.

1948 CE – Jews establish a state for themselves over the land of Palestine and call it Israel. Thousands of Muslims are forced out of their homes.
