On October 13, 2023, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and Principal Deputy National Security Advisor Jon Finer held sessions with Arab and Muslim American community leaders in the wake of Hamas’s abhorrent attack in Israel and the resulting conflict in Gaza. 
During the conversations, community leaders shared a range of experiences, suggestions, and concerns. Sullivan and Finer briefed on Administration efforts to assist Americans attempting to leave Gaza and the West Bank and provided the latest updates on U.S. Government coordination with the United Nations, Israel, Egypt, Jordan, and others in the region to facilitate humanitarian assistance and ensure civilians have access to water, food, and medical care in Gaza. 
Sullivan and Finer reiterated President Biden’s remarks that there is no place in America for hatred of any community, and they discussed with participants how the federal government can support affected communities.
