Labor MK Shalom Simhon said Tuesday that Labor Party Chairman Amir Peretz was interested in incorporating Shimon Peres and Ehud Barak into the Labor Party's government list. Simhon said, "I can tell you with absolute certainty that Amir Peretz wants Ehud Barak at his side." "What's more important than this [to Peretz] is that Shimon Peres be foreign minister in Peretz's government and that Ehud Barak be defense minister," Simhon continued. Simhon asserted that if the two joined Peretz's team, it would "turn the Labor Party into Israel's Maccabi Tel Aviv," Army Radio reported.
