The protests are set for 10am at the American Moslem Society mosque in Dearborn that sits close to the Ford Rouge plant, 1pm outside the Dearborn Police station on Michigan Ave. and 1.30pm in Lapeer Park in Dearborn. Different Arab American groups are organizing the various protests.
The demonstrations would be the latest of several held in Dearborn over the past week as Arab American activists in Michigan are outraged by Biden’s support of Israel over its attacks in Jerusalem and Gaza, where more than 200 have been killed, most of them Palestinians. Dearborn is 47% Arab American, most of them Muslim, the highest percentage among cities in the US. Israeli officials maintain they are defending themselves from Hamas rocket attacks and violence from some Palestinian extremists.
