Democratic Majority for Israel president and CEO, Mark Mellman, issued the following statement today:

“Congratulations to Joe Biden who officially accepted our party’s presidential nomination tonight. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are the perfect team to restore the soul of this nation, to put an end to President Trump’s hateful agenda and to strengthen American leadership and the U.S.-Israel relationship.

“Our sister organization, DMFI PAC, was proud to be the first pro-Israel organization to endorse Vice President Biden during the primary season.

“We are also delighted that the Democratic Party has an excellent platform. Democrats running on its planks will capture the imagination, and earn the votes of a decisive majority of Americans. This platform reflects the long held commitments of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, by continuing our party’s proud tradition of supporting a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.”
