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?”

And then, most likely in June, President Trump is expected to unveil what he’s called ‘the deal of the century’ between Israel and the Palestinians. The Washington Post reports that the plan will involve Palestinian autonomy rather than a sovereign state, and ahead of its publication, a group of thirty senior European figures including former prime ministers and former foreign ministers, have said Europe should reaffirm its commitment to to a two-state solution.”
