While all good people are aghast at Putin's land grab in Ukraine, we totally ignore Israel's land grab in West Bank

Putin's land grab in Ukraine hasn't actually grabbed any land.

But it's made headlines galore in the nations of freedom and virtue.

Israel, on the other hand, has officially announced that it's grabbing another slice of Palestine, just because they can.

That makes virtually no headlines whatsoever, although we see Washington making some mealy-mouthed statements about how stealing Palestinian land may not be conducive to forging peace with the Palestinians.

That's a start.

As for that sibling rivalry between Russia and Ukraine, maybe we should butt out and let them sort it out.
