"I have come to the conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two are lawyers and three or more are the government." -- John Adams (1735 - 1826)

Abdullah Hammoud has vowed that unless US President Joe Biden ends his administration's unwavering support for Israel it will cost him the Arab American vote and re-election later this year.

The mayor of Dearborn, speaking to Middle East Eye in Dearborn, home to one of the largest Arab American populations in the US, said that, for the next two weeks, he and several other dissenting voices in Michigan will be encouraging voters to select "uncommitted" in the state's Democratic primary, which is slated for 27 February.

Citing continued US support for Israel's devastating war on Gaza, Hammoud said the grassroots "Vote Uncommitted" campaign would try to spur Arab and Muslim Americans in Michigan, 146,000 of whom voted for Biden in 2020, to vote "uncommitted" in an act of protest.
