    Two U.S. citizens that were being held inside Gaza were released on Friday after they were kidnapped last weekend by the Islamic terrorist organization Hamas.

    "In response to Qatari efforts, Al-Qassam Brigades released two American citizens (a mother and her daughter)," terrorists said in a statement.

    Fox News correspondent Trey Yingst said that the two women who were released were Judith and Natalie Raanan, residents of Evanston, Illinois, located outside of Chicago. They were in Israel to "celebrate a relative's 85th birthday and the Jewish holiday season," according to the Times of Israel.

    The terrorists murdered 1,400 Israelis and 32 Americans during the attacks and wounded 3,000+ more. There are still more than 200 hostages being held hostage inside Gaza and 11 Americans remain unaccounted for.

    Horrifying stories have emerged of the atrocities that the terrorists committed, including raping a young girl while her father was forced to listen over the phone, people so badly burned that their identities cannot be confirmed, and babies that were beheaded.

    The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) have said that they believe that the majority of the hostages are still alive and that there were more than 20 minors that were kidnapped and up to 20 people over the age of 60.

    "To those who are living in limbo, waiting desperately to learn the fate of a loved one, especially to families of the hostages - You're not alone," President Joe Biden said in a statement this week from Israel. "We're working with partners throughout the region, pursuing every avenue to bring home those who are being held captive by Hamas."

In the minds of many, since January 20, 2021, the World has become far less safe in every theater of conflict, beginning with the attack of Israel by Iran /Hamas, so the question becomes: What caused this Worldwide calamity of extreme geopolitical dysfunction, and what will correct it?
  Joe Biden is the cause of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when a Republican is elected president.
  This delayed Worldwide dysfunction and constant conflict is all Donald Trump's fault, as it is with everything that occurs going forward, and long before the man ever became the 45th president..
  Joe Biden is the "root cause" of this frightening Worldwide situation, and it will end when former President Donald John Trump is elected president.
  In the imitable words of Alfred E. Newman: "What, me worry?"
