Statement from Democratic Majority for Israel CEO Mark Mellman on the California Democratic Party’s Rejection of anti-Israel Resolutions

WASHINGTON, DC (May 31, 2019) – DMFI congratulates the California Democratic Party for rejecting a series of one-sided resolutions attacking Israel.

DMFI President, Mark Mellman, said, “Working with other organizations, our board, and individuals, we made clear to CDP leaders and delegates that these resolutions were oversimplified and inaccurate. And we are very pleased that, after careful deliberation, the Party accepted our view. Sadly though, this is not the last time we’ll see efforts to demonize and delegitimize Israel.” Mellman continued, “This weekend’s events are an important reminder that there’s a vital need for DMFI. We’ll continue to work within the Democratic Party to maintain and strengthen support for the U.S.-Israel alliance, defend Israel’s legitimacy and promote a two-state solution through diplomacy and partnership.”
