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.

So how’s all this playing out in Israel and the occupied territories?”
