'Take Yesha Education Out of Defense Minister’s Hands'


MK Aryeh Eldad (National Union) addressed on Wednesday the upgrade in the status of Ariel College to a university.

"We should congratulate Ariel University that even the Defense Minister who intends to destroy the entire settlement enterprise, could not find an excuse to postpone the granting of university status to the academic institution in Ariel. It is regrettable that a government that pretends to be a nationalist one has failed to take this authority from the Defense Minister and transfer it to the Minister of Education, as it is in the rest of Israel. "
