Here's another sign of the rift between the Arab and Muslim American community and the Biden administration. 

The organizer of a planned meeting between President Joe Biden's campaign manager and a group of Arab and Muslim American leaders in Dearborn  was canceled Friday, the Detroit News reports.

The reason: Members of the community objected due to the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas. Some members are rejecting any overtures from the Arab American community until the president advocates a cease fire, the News reports.
