DMFI Statement on Iran’s Latest Rejection of Diplomatic Overtures

"President Trump was wrong to exit the JCPOA without any plan to get a better deal, and we applaud President Biden’s efforts to reach a diplomatic agreement. However, we are deeply disappointed that Iran has failed to return to compliance with the JCPOA as President Biden has demanded, continued overt and covert violations of its nuclear commitments, continued attacks against US and Israeli interests, and is even refusing to meet for further discussions. Iran can certainly not be rewarded for this behavior."

DMFI Statement on Republican Acquittal of Former President Trump

"It is disappointing — though not surprising — that the vast majority of Senate Republicans have decided to put party over country by refusing to convict the former president for his failure to uphold his oath and for actively encouraging an assault against a co-equal branch of government. By voting to acquit President Trump, Republicans today establish a truly dangerous precedent for future presidents. We thank all the senators, in both parties, who did what was right for our country in voting to convict former President Trump.”

Statement from DMFI Board Co-Chairs Ann Lewis and Todd Richman on Netanyahu’s Alliance with Racist, Far-Right Faction Ahead of Israeli Elections

“It’s outrageous that Prime Minister Netanyahu has once again aligned his Likud party with Otzma Yehudit, an extremist party made up of disciples of the late Meir Kahane. Otzma Yehudit’s racist beliefs are completely at odds with the values of the State of Israel and should have no place in Israeli institutions. It would be shameful if these extremists entered Israel’s parliament. We have faith that Israeli voters will reject this representation in their democracy."
