MK Danny Danon (Likud) says he intends to fight any attempt to induct Defense Minister Ehud Barak into the Likud.
"In February I will run for the presidium of the convention in order to stop Defense Minister Barak from joining the Likud," Danon told Arutz Sheva during an interview about the upcoming Likud primaries.
"We don't want Barak in the Likud," Danon said. "The same defense minister who said he would have joined Hamas if he was a Palestinian - his place is not in the Likud."
"I will do everything in my power to stop Barak from joining the Likud," Danon said.
Rumors that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu would secure Barak a quota-slot on the Likud parliamentary in order to provide his former commander in the elite Matkal commando unit with a political safety net have been circulating for weeks.
Barak, who broke away from the Labor party with five Knesset members to form his Independence faction, has found himself on tenuous ground. His new party has yet to poll well enough to be seated in the next Knesset were elections to be held.
Netanyahu denied he would give Barak a slot ....

For one exciting moment, I thought Obama was going to Israel to live.
No such luck for you, no such calamity for us.
I like Bibi.
I loved his speech before out Congress and evidently the Congress did too.
Anyone with the name Barak is suspect.
God Bless the U.S. God Bless Israel. God Bless Texas.
The best friends that Israel has are some of the Christians in the U.S. Like it or not, both our futures are forever intertwined.
That’s the bottom line. Being anti-Israel has limited impact on the Jewish vote, which itself is miniscule and divided. Without Christian support, there would be no ‘special relationship’ between the US and Israel. We’d be handed over to the Arabs on a silver platter in exchange for oil, and then the Islamofascist conquest of Europe would move into high gear. America would remain delusional until it’s all that’s left. So thanks, American Christians. You’re tipping the scales now while it still means something.
We will fight this battle together, whether some Christians and some Jews engage will not matter.
We are already in it, but many cannot see it. They think “man” will bring peace to the Middle East. He will not.
The hand of God will, in his own due time.
Ehud Barak seems to me to be Israel’s version of John McCain - honorable military service followed by a “public service” career in which he demonstrated an exceptional knack for betrayal, sabotage and undermining of his putative friends and allies, not to mention his country.
I will grant that he’s not freaking insane like McCain, however...
Sure. Insane is Perez’ department. Ehud is simply malevolent.
Until He does, we’d better watch each others’ backs for mutual benefit.
