Dahlia Wasfi (born 1971) is an Iraqi-American physician and peace activist. Born in New York City, her mother is an Austrian Jew and her father, a Muslim Iraqi. She graduated from Swarthmore College in 1993 with BA in Biology and earned her medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1997.
Part of Dr. Wasfi's April 27, 2006 address to the Congressional Progressive Caucus included these statements:
“I speak to you today on behalf of relatives on my mother’s side - Ashkenazi Jews, who fled their homeland of Austria during Hitler’s Anschluss. It is for them that we say 'Never again.'
"I speak to you today on behalf of relatives on my father’s side, who are not living, but dying, under the occupation of this administration’s deadly foray in Iraq. From the lack of security to the lack of basic supplies to the lack of electricity to the lack of potable water to the lack of jobs to the lack of reconstruction to the lack of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, they are much worse off now than before we invaded. 'Never again' should apply to them, too."Government
