Few men in Israeli politics today stir more emotions than Danny Danon, the deputy speaker of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset. To his supporters, he is a patriot, a defender of the Jewish state and a strong supporter of Israeli settlers. His opponents call him and his followers dangerous.

One of his most controversial recent causes was making it legal to sue people for organising boycotts, for example of products manufactured by settlers in the West Bank. He also wants to expel from the Knesset any member who joins any activity which would join the siege of Gaza.

In this episode of Talk to Jazeera, Danon explains to Al Jazeera's Teymoor Nabili why he does not believe in a two-state solution.

"There is place only for one state on the land of Israel .... I do not believe in a two-state solution"
