    With six days to go before Israel’s general election, attention is focused on the battle for re-election by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu needs the help of smaller parties to defeat his main challenger, former army chief Benny Gantz.

    Meanwhile, the country is also seeing a rise of other far-right candidates. The Zehut party’s Moshe Feiglin wants to annex the occupied West Bank and Gaza and dispatch hundreds of thousands of Palestinians to other countries.
