“The children’s author Judith Kerr who published more than 30 books over a career that lasted 50 years has died at the age of 95. It is rare to come across a writer beloved by all who read her let alone all who meet her. Among her best-known books was The Tiger Who Came To Tea – I knew it by heart, I’d read it so often to my children.”

“Today, we’re going to head to the north-eastern tip of Israel, to the Golan Heights. This is a small country, so from here, Jerusalem to the Golan, it’s about a two-and-a-half-hour drive, and it’s a stunning landscape. This is also occupied territory, but my goodness it feels so different to the West Bank.”

Two separate developments suggest the landscape may be shifting. Last month, before winning the Israeli general election, the prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised to annex parts of the occupied West Bank – in other words, make them fully part of the state of Israel. And there’s wide speculation that next month President Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner may at last unveil his ‘deal of the century’ to chart a new way forward for the Israelis and Palestinians. So how’s all this playing out in Israel and the occupied territories?”
