US Muslims launch anti-Biden campaign ahead of 2024 election

Muslims in the United States have launched a campaign against President Joe Biden’s bid for re-election in 2024 over his support for Israel in its war against the Palestinian. 

A coalition of Muslim leaders hailing from Michigan, Minnesota, Arizona, Wisconsin, Florida, Georgia, Nevada, and Pennsylvania convened in Dearborn, Michigan, during the past weekend to inaugurate a significant campaign.
The primary objective of this campaign is to urge voters to reconsider their support for President Joe Biden, citing his perceived 'unwillingness to call for a cease-fire and protect innocents in Palestine and Israel,' as outlined in a statement issued by the organizers.
According to assessments by Axios, the expressed discontent among Arab American and Muslim American communities might adversely affect Biden's chances of reelection, particularly in the 2024 swing states he secured in the 2020 election.
Organizers stressed a commitment among Muslim community leaders to unite and actively work toward ensuring Biden's defeat in these pivotal states.
Jaylani Hussein, one of the campaign's organizers, highlighted that the #AbandonBiden initiative will primarily utilize social media platforms for dissemination at its initial stages.
Acknowledging the potential challenges associated with withdrawing support from Biden, Hussein also expressed awareness of the potential impact such actions might have on the community in the forthcoming years.
