President Joe Biden issued a statement on the beginning of Ramadan, acknowledging the “moment of immense pain” for many Muslim Americans in light of the ongoing conflict in Gaza.

He affirmed his efforts to establish a truce and deliver humanitarian aid. Biden expressed sympathy for Palestinians who have died, including some with family members in the U.S. who are grieving.

Some Palestinians “are family members of American Muslims, who are deeply grieving their lost loved ones today,” Biden wrote.

He said the suffering of Palestinians is front of mind for him and many Muslims observing Ramadan.

Biden also conveyed that Muslim Americans are “deeply valued” and he hears, sees, and prays for those grieving during this time of war.

“As Muslims gather around the world over the coming days and weeks to break their fast, the suffering of the Palestinian people will be front of mind for many. It is front of mind for me,” he said.

“To Muslims across our country, please know that you are deeply valued members of our American family,” Biden wrote.

“To those who are grieving during this time of war, I hear you, I see you, and I pray you find solace in your faith, family, and community. And to all who are marking the beginning of Ramadan tonight, I wish you a safe, healthy, and blessed month. Ramadan kareem,” he wrote.

Just hours earlier, it was confirmed that a U.S. Army vessel was dispatched carrying equipment to construct a temporary pier off Gaza’s coast to supply humanitarian aid without troops going ashore.
