Both Kenosha, Wisconsin, prosecutors and an outside police use of force independent expert hired by the city found that the police shooting of Jacob Blake by Officer Rusten Shesky was a justifiable use of police force in the circumstance where, among other things, Blake was holding a knife and turned towards Shesky in a sweeping and threatening manner.

We have covered the radical Islamist group American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) extensively, especially as the group has increasingly framed its anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism as expressions of 'intersectional' social justice activism. In 2020, AMP has yet again used its largest annual event—the "Palestine Conference"—to hijack and foment existing racial tensions as a political warfare weapon against Israel.

At the beginning of this month, Princeton University President Christopher L. Eisgruber, penned a letter to the Princeton community which claimed that racism is "embedded" in structures of the university. The Department of Education took this claim seriously and has launched an investigation. If schools are going to make these claims, it's about time that we take them at their word.

Late August's surge of riots and protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after the police shooting of Jacob Blake, has stirred much political debate. In that debate, we should not overlook one incident during the rioting that reflects one aspect of the larger Black Lives Matter organized movement: Graffiti in front of a local synagogue proclaiming "Free Palestine."

When Kenosha erupted in flames, it wasn't that the actions of the rioters were so different than in other cities across America. Unfortunately, it's become the new business-as-usual, because we've grown accustomed to seeing much the same things happen in deep blue (i.e. leftist) cities such as Seattle, Portland, and Chicago.

Kenosha, WI is under siege by mobs of violent rioters, looters, vandals, and arsonists. The mainstream media is spinning this as a normal reaction to the police shooting of Jacob Blake, but it's obviously a gang of criminal thugs wreaking havoc and destroying lives and livelihoods because they can.  No matter the impetus, this is not okay.
