The Iraqi parliament has unanimously approved legislation that criminalizes any forms of normalizing ties with Israel. 
Parliament said in a statement that the law represents a true reflection of the will of the Iraqi people. The legislative body urged Arab and Islamic parliaments to follow suit. The bill requires all officials, including those in the semi-autonomous Kurdish Region, institutions and the media to refrain from establishing relations with the Israeli regime. The United Arab Emirates, Sudan, Bahrain, and Morocco have established diplomatic ties with Israel despite backlash from much of the Arab world. The Palestinians condemned the move as a betrayal of their cause and a stab in their back.
