Some Arab-American Dems ‘betrayed’ by Biden over handling of Israel-Hamas war: ‘Let’s Go Brandon Situation’

Some Arab-American Democrats are turning on President Biden over his handling of the Israel-Hamas conflict, with one even describing it as a “Let’s Go Brandon situation,” according to a new report.

Hani Almadhoun, who is part of a group called Arab Americans for Biden, told Politico the group had been renamed Arab Americans Forward because members were not happy with the president, who has stood by Israel publicly and pledged full support.

Almadhoun said it was, “basically a Let’s Go Brandon situation,” referring to the crude anti-Biden slogan that became popular with his critics earlier in his term.

Maysoon Zayid, a Palestinian-American comedian who supported Biden’s campaign in 2020, told Politico that she couldn’t vote for him in 2024.

Behind the scenes, according to an Axios report on Saturday, Biden has gently tried to stop Israel from getting too embroiled in a deep military conflict with Hamas while maintaining a public face of steadfast support. Israel declared war on the terrorist group after Hamas launched a brutal assault on southern Israel on Oct. 7, killing civilians and taking hostages.
