Did Biden write two different letters on the Gaza war?

President Joe Biden has been reported to have delivered two different messages on the Israel-Hamas war to pro-Palestinian and pro-Israel Americans. One letter showcased Biden's support for Israel against Hamas's "terrorism," while the other emphasized the US administration's efforts to protect civilians in the Gaza Strip. The letter sent to pro-Israel individuals invoked the Holocaust and pledged continuous support to Israel. On the other hand, the letter to pro-Palestinians focused on aid to Palestine and made no mention of the Holocaust or US support for Israel. While the letters do not contradict each other or Biden's policies, crafting different versions of a letter on the same topic that vary so much in emphasis is uncommon for the White House. This incident reflects the political tightrope that Biden is trying to navigate as pro-Israel and pro-Palestinian elements of his coalition fray over the war. With less than a year to go before elections, Biden is careful to address the concerns of both groups while maintaining his administration's stance on the conflict.
