US-Israeli media mogul Haim Saban asks Biden to reverse decision on weapons freeze

Israeli-American media mogul Haim Saban sends a letter to US President Joe Biden asking him to reverse his decision to stop providing weapons to Israel if it launches an operation in the populated parts of Rafah, Gaza’s southernmost city.

The US government’s decision “to stop sending munitions to Israel” as it fights Hamas sends “a terrible message to our allies in the region and beyond,” Saban — who is a longtime donor to the Democratic Party — says in the letter, a copy of which was circulated online.

The decision, he writes, shows that the Biden administration can “flip from doing the right thing to bending to political pressure.”

Calling it a “bad… bad… bad… decision, on all levels,” Saban asks Biden to reconsider, saying that “there are more Jewish voters who care about Israel, than Muslim voters that care about Hamas.”
