Labor party ministers voted late Wednesday night to agree to Israel Beiteinu's entry into the Kadima-led coalition and backed party chairman Amir Peretz's decision to remain in the government. The sole holdout was Science, Culture and Sports Minister Ophir Pines-Paz, who said the decision would split Labor into two camps. Infrastructure Minister Binyamin Ben Eliezer brushed aside Pines-Paz's comments, saying that "Labor has always included both hawks and doves, and they have always lived together in peace." Ben Eliezer praised Peretz for the move, which he called "courageous."
