Iraq’s parliament yesterday unanimously approved legislation that criminalizes any form of “normalization” with Israel, and punishes offenders with life imprisonment or even the death sentence.
According to the text of the law, which was obtained by Middle East Eye, all Iraqis, whether inside or outside the country, are banned from establishing relations with Israel, visiting the country, or promoting normalisation.
The legislation applies to all state officials, including those in the semi-autonomous northern Kurdistan region, as well as government institutions, private sector companies, the media, foreign companies and their employees.
The law stipulates that any Iraqi who visits Israel will be sentenced to life imprisonment, and those who establish any political, economic, or cultural relations with Israeli institutions, even through social media networks, will be sentenced to death

He’s clearly smoking something.
Either that, or his drug is antisemitism.
