Arguably the most right wing government in Israel's history may soon be replaced by a government even further to the right. Prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu is the clear favourite to keep his job after the forthcoming election, but his next governing coalition may depend on hardliners in the Jewish settler movement who want to annex large chunks of the West Bank and end all talk of a two-state peace deal. Dani Dayan is a settler leader who is backing Mr Netanyahu. Is the rise of the far right about to leave Israel dangerously isolated?
