Halting the bleeding loss of Palestinian lives and ceasing to supply Israel with arms are also critical conditions for a change of position for voters, according to Democracy Now.
Present situation in Gaza could lead to Joe Biden losing his reelection, the article stated, in which it underlined that Israeli bombings have caused more than 28,000 deaths in Gaza since October 7, including 11,500 children.
Likewise, the toll of wounded jumped to 67,000, despite the fact that the International Court of Justice ordered Israel on January 26 to take all measures within its reach to prevent genocide in Gaza, the Israeli attacks have increased, authors Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan wrote.
The article cited a specific example of the loss of support for Biden: Michigan, a swing state in the U.S. presidential election, which is home to one of the largest Arab-American communities in the country.
Many Arab-American communities members, who have always voted Democratic, now say they cannot support President Biden in the Feb. 27 primary, the authors added.
Joe Biden’s campaign advisers are increasingly concerned about this issue, the article noted.
In late January, in the state of Michigan, Dearborn City Mayor Abdullah Hammoud, who is also the first Muslim to be elected to that office, refused to meet with President Biden´s campaign manager Julie Chavez.
The article also stated that Mayor Hammoud is presently leading an initiative aimed at pressuring Biden to call for an immediate cease-fire in Gaza.
The ListenToMichigan.com released a statement signed by more than thirty Democratic elected officials, which said, “Michigan voters are sending Biden a clear message: don’t count us out in the Feb. 27 Democratic primary.”
They said they will select the ‘NO COMPROMISE’ option because they strongly reject Biden’s funding of the war and genocide in Gaza.
They warned that Biden will have to drastically change his policies to win the vote of this segment of the electorate.
The “NOT COMMITTED” option indicates that voters support the party, but do not favor any of the candidates on the ballot.
