Biden’s Gaza Stance Spurs Stunning Drop in Arab American Support

Following the deadly October 7th attack by Hamas, President Joe Biden has promised his unfettered support to Israel and its people. However, Palestinian and Arab Americans have expressed increasing outrage over the President’s response to Israel’s bombardment of Gaza, which has killed over 9,000 people including over 3,400 children.
