The complexities of the seemingly endless Israel-Palestine conflict are wide and deep and even those intimately familiar with it have little idea how, if at all, it can be resolved. The centenary of the landmark Balfour Declaration, the move of the US embassy to Jerusalem, death and misery in the Gaza Strip, and Donald Trump’s promised “deal of the century” have all generated headlines – and anger – in recent months. A veteran Middle East correspondent and editor for the Guardian, and the author of the acclaimed Enemies and Neighbours: Arabs and Jews in Palestine and Israel, 1917-2017, Ian Black is here to analyse the latest news from the Holy Land and to reflect on a bitterly contested past and an uncertain future.
