Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak has split from the Labor Party, which he serves as chairman, and will form a new party. Four other Labor lawmakers joined Barak on Monday: Agriculture Minister Shalom Simhon; Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilnai; Deputy Industry, Trade and Labor Minister Orit Noked; and freshman Knesset member Einat Wilf. The new party is expected to be called Atzmaut, or Independence.
