The United States, through its Secretary of State Antony Blinken, continues to press for a “humanitarian truce” in Gaza. This position is not enough to reassure part of the American people who have been demonstrating for weeks for a complete ceasefire. There are still tens of thousands of them marching this weekend in Washington, D.C., and other cities. One year before the presidential election, this war puts Joe Biden in a sensitive position. His popularity with Muslim voters has declined over the past three weeks.
With our correspondent in New York, Lubna Al-Anaki
” I voted for Joe Biden in 2020. Before that, I voted for Hillary Clinton and Obama both times “Since he was old enough to vote, Ali has voted for the Democratic Party. He had intended to vote again for Joe Biden in the 2024 presidential election, but has changed his mind in recent weeks.” I will not support a war criminal complicit in the genocide of innocents. The taxes I pay directly contribute to the deaths of thousands of innocent Palestinians “.
Like Ali, more and more American Muslims are critical of the Biden administration’s current stance and handling of the war in Gaza.
” They gave them the full green light, without asking questions, and without holding Israel accountable for its actions. “, declares a man.
” Frankly, Joe Biden’s unwavering support for Israel is un-American. Our country believes in freedom and justice for all. It is clear that what Israel is doing now is a violation of Palestinian rights “This woman appreciates it.
In 2020, more than 65% of American Muslims voted for Joe Biden. A recent opinion poll showed that support has now fallen to less than 17%. In key states, such as Michigan, with a large Muslim population, many plan to vote no votes or for an independent candidate, and it does not matter if this means a victory for Donald Trump.
