Early elections in Israel have been set for January 22. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Avigdor Lieberman will stand at the head of a joint list formed by Likud and Yisrael Beiteinu, and a fragmented opposition will have a hard time preventing the formation of a right-wing coalition. These are the first elections since the 2011 social protests, and they take place against the backdrop of settlement expansion, deepening occupation, and an Israeli threat to attack Iran. +972 bloggers bring you the latest elections news and analysis.
