“I am not a Rubber Stamp”

Defense Minister Ehud Barak will only order the IDF Central Command General to approve Ariel College as a university after he has met with all the relevant parties, such as the college dean and Chairman of the Board. “The decision will also be postponed until the High Court ruling on the subject. My decision has nothing to do with the defense budget,” said Barak, in a rebuttal of a Yisrael Beiteinu threat not to allow the defense budget to pass until the college is upgraded.
