Iraqi govt slams Israel’s nation-state law

Baghdad has slammed a new Israeli law which proclaims the country as an exclusively Jewish state, saying it feeds racism. The Iraqi Foreign Ministry said on Monday that the “nation-state” law “entrenches racism and undermines whatever hope left for the peace process and the Palestinian cause.” The ministry added that it “does not recognize the Zionist entity and the illegitimate Knesset from which that law emerged,” IraqiNews reported. The ministry said that the law violates all international conventions regarding settlement activity.
