Here's more on what it's like to be evicted by a Jewish settler.

This time, a series of videos shows a group of Israeli settlers and a group of Palestinians hurling rocks at each other in the West Bank village of Asira. This in itself is nothing new. The shocking bit comes shortly thereafeter when the Jewish settlers gather up rifles and begin opening fire, all under the watchful but unresponsive eye of Israeli security forces.

Fair warning: One Palestinian man is shot in the head.

The Israeli human rights group B'tselem released the videos on Monday. The first one is below. You can watch the others here.
