Israel’s incessant human rights abuses against Palestinians included last week: abductions, violence, home demolition and invasion, and more. Mainstream media won’t tell these stories.

Now imagine these attacks growing so extreme that white supremacists can even take over the homes and land of those Black people, simply because they can, knowing the authorities will turn a blind eye… That’s what Israel does year after year after year to Palestinians – while US politicians from both parties continue to send Israel over $10 million per day…
