There is a stark contrast between Israel and Hamas. There is also a stark contrast between their supporters.
On October 7, Hamas launched a surprise assault on Israel, using beheadings, torture, rape and kidnapping as their tools of warfare. Israel declared war in response, using traditional methods of warfare to secure the future safety of its people. Israel minimizes civilian casualties, while Hamas uses Israeli civilian hostages as bargaining chips and Palestinian civilians as human shields. The contrast between Israel and Hamas is jarring, and the difference extends to their support bases in America as well. Unsurprisingly, the radical Left is taking advantage of this conflict and using it as cover to engage in violent behavior reminiscent of the breakdown of law and order that occurred in many American cities in 2020.Read more

In a rare move, President Joe Biden has indicated that he will sign into law a Republican effort to block a radical D.C. law that would have dramatically weakened penalties for serious crimes in the nation's capital.
🚨 BREAKING: Even Biden admits crime is out of control in Democrat-run cities thanks to the Left's soft-on-crime agenda.— Steve Scalise (@SteveScalise) March 2, 2023
House Republicans are forcing a bill to his desk to overturn DC's weak new criminal code eliminating mandatory minimums on violent crime—and he won't veto it. https://t.co/sd6b7sh7H5
But Biden shouldn't be given any credit for ultimately stopping the radical legislation. This was clearly a move to save face for Democrats who have largely been responsible for a crime crisis sweeping the country:Read more

A new FBI report indicates that murder rates increased during 2021, while violent crime decreased overall. However, the agency is facing criticism over the credibility of its data, which relies heavily on estimation due to a lack of participation by law enforcement agencies—including those in crime hubs like Los Angeles and New York City:
“The overwhelming lack of law enforcement participation presents a challenge when assessing the true state of nationwide crime in America,” said Jillian Snider, the policy director for the R Street Institute’s criminal justice and civil liberties team.
Snider, a retired NYPD cop, said everyone should “proceed with caution” in using this data for new criminal justice policy.
The FBI’s latest statistics show violent crime dropped last year — but the data fails to account for thousands of places, including big cities like NYC and LA.— Craig McCarthy (@createcraig) October 5, 2022
Experts say the data has glaring holes due to an “overwhelming” lack of participation by police.https://t.co/zfd9BfjHNq
