California Governor Gavin Newsom has shifted his stance on the Israel-Gaza conflict, calling for an “immediate ceasefire” in a letter to Muslim and Arab communities in his state.

While Newsom had strongly supported Israel’s right to self-defense during a visit in October, meeting victims of Hamas attacks, his new letter echoes demands made by Vice President Kamala Harris.

“I also unequivocally denounce Hamas’s terrorist attack against Israel,” Newsom said previously.

Newsom expressed solidarity with those experiencing prejudice for speaking out, but only condemned Hamas’ terrorism without pressing for its disarmament.

This change in rhetoric from Democrats like Newsom and Harris seems aimed at appealing to anti-Israel voters within their party, shown by a Pew poll finding a majority of Muslim Americans view Hamas’ reasons for fighting as justified but not Israel’s.

“It is time to work in earnest toward an enduring peace that will furnish the lasting security, autonomy, and freedom that the Palestinians and the Israeli people both deserve,” Newsom wrote.
