Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Washingtontimes.com: “Biden praises law enforcement for rescuing hostages in Texas synagogue”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

President Biden hailed law enforcement and sent “love and strength” to the Jewish community in Colleyville, Texas, late Saturday after an elite team rescued four people who were taken hostage in a synagogue.

Authorities said the hostage-taker, who stormed into the live-streamed service Congregation Beth Israel, was dead after the 11-hour standoff.

“There is more we will learn in the days ahead about the motivations of the hostage-taker. But let me be clear to anyone who intends to spread hate — we will stand against anti-Semitism and against the rise of extremism in this country,” Mr. Biden said in a written statement. “That is who we are, and tonight, the men and women of law enforcement made us all proud.”

He praised the work of law enforcement “at all levels who acted cooperatively and fearlessly to rescue the hostages.”

Authorities have identified the suspect but did not disclose his name as they investigate his motives.
