      Elkin Welcomes Ariel University Recognition


      MK Ze’ev Elkin (Likud), who chairs the Knesset’s Land of Israel lobby, welcomed on Sunday the Israeli government’s decision to recognize the Ariel University Center as a full-fledged university.

      “This decision does academic and moral justice with this institution, which has met all the professional criteria posed by the Council for Higher Education,” said Elkin, adding that the decision also “sends a very important message that Ariel will forever remain a part of Israel.”
