The Labor party is seeking settlers as partners, Amir Peretz said on Sunday. During a meeting with settlers in Moshav Shimor, which is on Mount Hebron in the West Bank, Peretz told settlers that he wanted to "make things easier for them." "We don't need difficult images on the TV and in newspaper to know that things are difficult for them," he said. "I have no doubt that if we [the government] act more delicately they will come with us hand in hand." "If the government provided some kind of assistance, I would move to the other side of the green line," said Ghishara Schwartz, a resident of the moshav. Ghishara runs a cosmetics company that is located on the other side of the green line.
