Iraq still far away from declaring peace with Israel?

The government in Baghdad has issued arrest warrants for five participants, and powerful groups backed by Iran also condemned the meeting.

The Iraqi government has condemned the conference and has issued arrest warrants for two of the main speakers and at least three other participants, including al-Ta’i, who has also been dismissed from her job at the culture ministry. The conference organizer said al-Ta’i had attended in a private capacity.

Under Iraqi law, it’s illegal to promote “Zionist principles.”
