Israel's Netanyahu gets push from hardliners

Prime minister challenged by groups pushing for an even tougher line on Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

    Polls in Israel show Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud party is leading ahead of next week's election.

    Netanyahu is defending his hardline policies over the occupied West Bank, and not just against his liberal critics.

    The prime minister and his party are also facing a challenge from those pushing for an even tougher line with the Palestinians.
