Prominent Illinois Arab, Muslim groups reject Biden meeting request

CHICAGO: Arab- and Muslim-American community leaders and elected officials angry over US policies on Gaza rejected a meeting proposed by President Joe Biden that was scheduled for Thursday in Chicago.

The leaders of at least 29 Arab and Muslim organizations, and several individual activists, signed a letter rejecting the request to meet Biden’s aides, saying: “There is no point in more meetings.”Biden has come under intense criticism for supporting Israel’s invasion of Gaza, which has killed more than 31,000 Palestinians.
