The Promised Land


This is the Middle East during Trump’s America. The most volatile place on earth; where 2000 years of fighting may not end soon.

At the heart of it all, Jerusalem - the most violently fought over city in world history. Claimed by the Palestinians, but declared the capital of Israel by the leader of the free world. Home to the Temple Mount, the Al Aqsa mosque and, now, the US Embassy. In The Promised Land we travel from Washington to the West Bank meeting people on all sides of the debate. Through the tears and the tear gas we seek to analyse the impact of Donald Trump’s first presidential term on peace in the region.
