NEW YORK – The American weekly news magazine, Newsweek covered the response of Muslim Americans regarding the airstrikes carried out by the US and UK in Yemen, Al-Ghad reported.اضافة اعلان

The US and UK launched military aggression against the Yemeni capital, Sana’a, as well as the provinces of Hudaydah, Saada, Dhamar, Taiz, and Hajjah. This action was taken due to Yemen’s support for Gaza and its targeting of Israeli vessels in the Red Sea en route to Israeli ports.

Newsweek viewed the airstrikes as another nail in the coffin for President Joe Biden, especially among Muslim voters in the approaching elections later this year.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)'s Deputy Executive Director, Edward Ahmed Mitchell, expressed grave concern over the illegal bombing in Yemen.

“We are extremely troubled to see the Biden administration escalate this crisis by bombing Yemen without congressional approval, rather than addressing the root cause of the crisis, which is Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza,” he stated.

Biden loses popularity among Arab and Muslim voters
According to Newsweek, a coalition of American Muslims in swing states launched a campaign under the slogan "#AbandonBiden," urging voters not to re-elect the current president in 2024 due to his support for the Israeli war on Gaza.

In this regard, Jaylani Hussein, Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Minnesota (CAIR-MN), indicated that the vast majority of Muslim Americans have informed her organization that they will not vote for Biden in the 2018 elections.

Similarly, polls have revealed a rising issue for Biden's candidacy. Only 5.2 percent of Muslim Americans polled by Emgage in early November 2023 stated they would vote for Biden in 2024.

Due to his military action against Yemen, Biden is also facing tremendous criticism from certain Democratic Party members. Concerns about constitutional and congressional overreach are at the root of these critiques.

According to the Washington Post, Biden’s support for Israel comes at the expense of US foreign policy.
