      MK Ness Supports Ariel University Amidst Complaints


      Member of Knesset Leah Ness (Likud Party) supported the Ariel University Center of Samaria amidst complaints. On Wednesday, the Council of Presidents of Israeli Universities sent a letter to several government officials complaining about the planned recognition of the intuition as an official university. MK Ness said that the letter was "shameful" because "those academics wave the flag of academic freedom." She said that the university should be recognized due to its professional and scholarly contributions regardless of political considerations."
