Israeli settlers taking over Palestinian homes

This video is heartbreaking, but maddening at the same time. That the US continues to play possum regarding Israel, and fund Israel when Israel is a strategic liability for the US, is an embarrassment to the United States. Unfortunately, most Americans are so ill-informed about events in Palestine and Israel that they will not be fully aware of the scale of humanitarian catastrophe which continues to persist in the West Bank, until another particularly audacious Israeli land grab occurs again, as it did in '08 and '06 most recently.

Meantime, these sorts of steady, grinding thefts of Palestinian property will continue, until the US tells Israel that its ongoing financial sponsorship is contingent on Israel evidencing some sort of regard for Palestinian human rights.
