What is difference between Belgian Malinois and German Shepherd(Alsatian)?

I just saw an article on the Seal team 6 dog of war that identified it as a Belgian Malinois. I had never heard of a Belgian Malinois but searched for images of the dog. If I saw someone walking one
of these, I would ask them if I could pet their German Shepherd. How are these dogs different?
