The fallout from President Biden's announcement that the United States would not supply any offensive weapons for an operation in Rafah continues today (Thursday), as Haim Saban, a major donor to the Democratic Party and to Biden himself sent the President a letter sharply criticizing the decision, according to Yediot reporter Nadav Eyal.

In the letter, Saban criticizes Biden for saying he's for the elimination of Hamas while denying Israel the means to do so, and that the decision sends a terrible message to the region regarding America's reliability.

He further warned that there are more Jewish voters who care about Israel than Muslims who care about Hamas, in a clear reference to the allegation that Biden is softening his support on Israel to shore up voting support in Michigan.

Saban ended with "please reconsider."
