Palestinians evicted in East Jerusalem

With the eviction of nine Palestinian families from the two East Jerusalem homes which they had occupied for some fifty years, the real nature of the ethnic cleansing that has been going on unimpeded since, at least, 1948 is surely obvious to all and sundry. The houses were immediately occupied by "settler" families. "Settlers", and one really wonders what planet these people live on. "Settler" a word that automatically conjours up colonisation or, at best, people migrating to a place in order to establish their permanent residence there. Only the most myopic would fail to appreciate what is going on in Palestine, yet most people appear to suffer from a sight disorder that needs sunglasses and a guide dog rather than a pair of reading glasses.
