Iraq on Saturday rejected the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories and confirmed its commitment not to establish relations with Israel.

“We reaffirm that Iraq’s position on the Palestinian issue is the same as our principled and historical position of rejecting the Israeli occupation of the Arab land,” the Iraqi Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

“We do not establish any relations with the occupying state, and are committed to the principle of boycott, not to abandon the rejection of all forms of normalization with this entity (Israel),” it added.

The ministry statement came in response to a circulated video in which Fareed Yasseen, the Iraqi ambassador to the United States, said that “there are objective reasons that might lead to the development of relations between Iraq and Israel.”

After the ambassador’s statement, the Iraqi parliamentary foreign relations committee called on the Foreign Ministry to “ensure the statements of its employees and representatives in the Iraqi diplomatic missions are in line with the foreign policy of the government.”

So-called Israel is a fake illegitimate entity created by British imperialists to sow cancer in the heart of Arab lands and no rational person can accept such a monstrous depraved parasitic evil. Israel is a Hollywood created fantasy and destined for the garbage heap of history like its Nazi and Apartheid template.

No rational person can accept such blind racism.
Iraq is not Arab land, it’s Mesopotamia that was invaded by Arabs.
The only monstrous depraved parasitic evil thing in the Mid-East is Islam, the proof is its so-called prophet even shagged his dead aunt. There’s probably nothing more sick and perverted than shagging a cadaver…
Hitler himself praised Islam as a source of Inspiration for Mein Kampf

Except that Iraqis are NOT Arabs… Now, some little historical point, kafir style : – Before Israël and Jordan, there was the British Mandate for Palestine, not a Palestinian state. – Before the British Mandate for Palestine, there was the Ottoman Empire, not a Palestinian state. – Before the British Mandate for Palestine, there was the Mamluk Sultanate, not a Palestinian state. – Before the Mamluk Sultanate, there was the Ayyubid dynasty, not a Palestinian state. – Before the Ayyubid dynasty, there was the French-Christian Kingdom of Jerusalem, not a Palestinian state. – Before the French-Christian Kingdom of Jerusalem, there… Read more »

-HUMAN DECISION CAN OVERRULE SKY – Chinese proverb

BUT JEWS MUST LASER TILL VANISH
Then see your ignorance powerful or the truth about everything.
