      Lapid: Someone's Concerned about My Entering Politics

      Yair Lapid responded on Sunday night to reports that he was accepted to a PhD program without having a bachelor’s degree.

      In response on his Facebook page to a question by another user, Lapid wrote, “Someone is concerned about my entering the political arena. I wonder why.”

      Earlier on Sunday, the Council for Higher Education announced that it intends to investigate how Lapid was accepted for doctoral studies at Bar-Ilan University, even though he did not complete a bachelor’s degree.
