"Expanding the coalition is a matter of principle," Defense Minister Amir Peretz, speaking at Kibbutz Ramat Efal, told kibbutz movement leaders on Tuesday. "I have an obligation, whether I like it or not, to listen." "No one should guess what my recommendation to the Labor central committee will be," Peretz continued. "Lieberman's presence is very grave for us," he said. Peretz said that he would meet with Prime Minister Ehud Olmert later Tuesday evening to discuss his [Peretz's] opinion of where the coalition is going. "Our party has a wide feeling and pluralism and the views here cannot be ignored," Peretz said.
