Saar Visits Ariel Uni for First Time Since Recognition


Minister of Education Gideon Saar toured the University of Ariel on Wednesday, marking the first such visit since Central Command officially recognized the institution as a university.

During the event Saar called on the universities to withdraw their names from a petition to the Supreme Court to annul the University's accreditation, saying, "After Bar-Ilan made ​​the right move and separated itself from the petition to the Supreme Court and after the Supreme Court's recommendation was rejected, I call on the heads of all universities to embrace their little sister Ariel, and to withdraw from the petition to the Supreme Court just as did Bar-Ilan University did."

"The entire government stands behind Ariel University, not just me," Saar added.
