Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited Ariel University on Tuesday. This past month it was granted official university status. "I want to reassure the world, the danger is not Ariel University," the Prime Minister stated, "the danger to the world is not that Israel is building neighborhoods in Jerusalem. The danger is that Iran is building nuclear weapons. The danger is that Syria is storing chemical weapons."
PM Netanyahu continued, "history will judge those that compare democratic Israel constructed universities to tyrannical regimes slaughtering their own people. We remain loyal to our homeland. We will protect our citizens and develop and build our country."
