Joe Biden is facing backlash from his own base.

A group of Muslim activists are now organizing an “Abandon Biden” movement in nine swing states.

The criticism is over Joe Biden’s handling of the situation in Gaza.

The group opposes Donald Trump but they would be okay if their efforts got him elected.

Human rights Prof. Hassan Abdel Salam, a member of the group, said if  Trump wins because of the group “the big gift that would come out of punishing the president is that an entire party … becomes a pro-Palestinian party against the occupation and will begin to look for equity much more aggressively than we have in the past.”

The group is looking at third-party candidates and will make endorsements this summer.

Star Tribune reported:

Human rights Prof. Hassan Abdel Salam has spent the past seven years teaching his students at the University of Minnesota about genocides around the world. On the last day of his class on global Islamophobia in April, he said he was quitting the classroom to oppose what he described as genocide in Gaza — by helping lead the “Abandon Biden” movement to defeat the president in November.

Abdel Salam, 48, is among a group of Muslim activists, including several Minnesotans, who are organizing in nine swing states in opposition to Biden’s re-election. The group’s leaders say they want to politically punish the president for what they describe as enabling mass civilian casualties in Gaza.

They say they oppose Donald Trump, too, but are OK if their efforts help re-elect the former president who once banned Muslims from the United States and threatens to do it again.

“By defeating [Biden], it would signal to the entire political landscape that defending genocide could lead to your defeat, so beware,” Abdel Salam said. “That’s my goal … promote the message throughout the nation and ensure it’s a consistent one.”

He said he and other Abandon Biden leaders are evaluating third-party candidates and plan to make an endorsement this summer. And if Trump wins because of their work, “the big gift that would come out of punishing the president is that an entire party … becomes a pro-Palestinian party against the occupation and will begin to look for equity much more aggressively than we have in the past,” Abdel Salam said.

This is a big threat to Joe Biden’s already teetering re-election bid.

His polling is low with Trump leading overall and in key swing states in most polls.

Breitbart reported:

The threat to Biden’s reelection bid over frustrations on the left among Muslims, Arab-Americans, young voters, and progressives has been well-documented throughout the election year. More than half a million Democrat primary voters protested Biden’s handling of the war and demanded a ceasefire by casting variations of “uncommitted” votes against him.

The Listen to Michigan campaign, which kicked off the movement, notes the threat to Biden is these voters would stay home in November, barring a major change in his policy. Despite Biden demanding a ceasefire in April from Benjamin Netanyahu and threatening to withhold weapons from Israel, the movement persisted in the Maryland Democrat primary on May 14, and with the November election less than six months away, he is running out of time.

While Maryland is not realistically in play for Republicans, the movement in Michigan and other swing states, where margins between Trump and Biden were tight in 2020, pose extreme danger for Democrats and Biden, especially as polling indicates Trump is already leading in many of these states.

The group’s website, Abandonbiden24.com, notes they are targeting Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

Jaylani Hussein, who serves on the national Abandon Biden board with Salam and three others, pointed to Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Wisconsin as states where the Muslim vote can really influence the state’s electoral outcome.
