MK Shai to Students: Boycott Obama's Speech


MK Nachman Shai (Labor) called the Israeli Student Association on Sunday to announce that its members will boycott President Barack Obama's speech this Thursday, because of the President’s decision not to invite students from the Ariel University in the Shomron.

"It's shocking to think you can disqualify students just because they are studying in Judea and Samaria. I do not understand how President Obama wants to conduct a dialogue with the Israeli public when he consciously excludes part of it,” wrote MK Shai on his Facebook page.
