ISRAEL-PALESTINE NEWS — The Democratic Majority for Israel (DMFI) has sent out an announcement saying it’s thrilled at the “pro-Israel allies” Biden has named to his upcoming government.
DFMI was formed to advocate for Israel among Democrats to counter the growing support among progressives for Palestinian human rights. (Israel has a long history of human rights abuses and ethnic/religious discrimination.)
Below is the message DMFI head Mark Mellman sent to supporters on December 7th:
As President-elect Biden continues to roll out key members of his incoming administration, we’re thrilled that so many pro-Israel allies will be taking up key positions across the government.
DMFI has provided our donors and supporters the opportunity to interact with a number of the leading figures in the new administration, and we will continue working with all of them in their new roles, along with others, who will be shaping policy. […]
Jewish groups have expressed their pleasure with the appointments so far made by Biden, most particularly Ron Klain as Chief of Staff and Jake Sullivan as National Security Adviser. But the Jewel in the Crown is Tony Blinken as Secretary of State. https://t.co/uGUdwAf92E
