Naomi Lim of the Washington Examiner focuses on this week’s important Democratic presidential contest.

Michigan’s Democratic presidential primary this week will underscore the political repercussions of the Israel-Hamas war for President Joe Biden before November’s general election.

More than four months since Hamas slaughtered more than a thousand Israelis and took hundreds more hostage on Oct. 7, Israel’s pledge to rid the world of the terrorist organization has divided the international community and the Democratic Party, with supporters of Palestinians in Michigan, a battleground state, promising not to vote for Biden in Tuesday’s primary or to mark themselves as “uncommitted” in protest of his response to the war.

Michigan’s Arab and Muslim Americans are “really energized” politically right now, according to Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’s Michigan chapter, cognizant that they could “decide who is the next president of the United States of America.”

“Michigan is an important swing state and, overall, a majority of Michigan Muslims are arguably disgusted with the Biden administration’s not only mishandling of the war on Gaza but the active arming with weapons of the Israeli military that is committing war crimes and in front of the International Criminal Court of Justice as we speak,” Walid said.

“I will sum it up with what one Palestinian American told me in our community, he said, anything short of Mr. Biden performing a miracle like Jesus and resurrecting 29,000 dead Palestinian women and children, he’s not voting for him under any circumstances. … I think that’s the majority view of the community at this point,” he added.

Biden’s support of Israel after Hamas’s Oct. 7 terrorist attack has prompted pro-Palestinian demonstrations nationwide, mostly spearheaded by young Americans, disrupting his appearances at former first lady Rosalynn Carter’s memorial service, a political speech at the site of the 2015 Charleston church shooting, and other events. The “uncommitted” campaign, endorsed by Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Dearborn Mayor Abdullah Hammoud (D-MI), and even 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke, is the most serious challenge to Biden’s leadership this primary cycle after special counsel Robert Hur’s report raised concerns about his age and memory.
