Baghdad ( – Iraq slammed on Monday the recent Israeli aggression against the Palestinian people in the besieged Gaza Strip, urging “practical steps” to put an end to escalation by the occupation forces.

“Iraq condemns the recent aggression of the Zionist entity against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip, which lasted for two days and resulted in the killing of a large number of Palestinians and the destruction of infrastructure,” SNG News quoted Spokesman for the Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs Ahmed al-Sahhaf as saying in a press statement.

Al-Sahhaf called on “the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to hold extraordinary meetings to discuss the repercussions of the Israeli aggression and to reach political steps to end waves of Israeli escalation against our Palestinian people.”

He also reaffirmed that Iraq will continue to support the Palestinian people to attain their legitimate rights and end Israeli occupation.

The flare-up began Saturday with massive rocket fire from Gaza, drawing waves of Israeli retaliatory strikes, which continued throughout Sunday.

Palestinian officials confirmed that Egypt had mediated a ceasefire on Monday to end the latest round of fighting.

  1. Israel needs to be recognized as a foreign state, not a Hebrew one. This simple fact can be taken from the Torah and it’s laws against having any other law for Hebrew people other than Torah. Deuteronomy 4:1-2. Also it must be noted that the do not wear the fringes of remembrance, numbers 15:38. Giving this false jewish state recognition as a jewish one is dangerous to all Hebrews and irresponsible. This could lead to the widespread usage of anti-semitism and lead to another Holocaust. The state should be recognized as a British Christian state.

  2. YHWH reformatted the earth with the flood, Torah is the operating system that HE established. That operating system is meant to spread throughout the entire earth. Any other law is just a virus in the operating system. The virus is not supposed to spread into Ysrael. The earth has become totally corrupt. YHWH will press the reset button again I warn you all! HE merely stated HE would not kill all flesh with a flood again, He never said HE wouldn’t kill all flesh again. You are getting us all killed, this is very irresponsible to your children and all the future generations. Take responsibility on yourselves for a change instead of blaming the poor.
