Far-Left Targets ex-MK Ben-Ari for 'Removal' from Ariel U. Post
Friends and colleagues of former MK Michael Ben-Ari say that he may be the victim of an organized campaign to get him fired from a teaching position he recently took an at Ariel University. The campaign, they said, seems to be an orchestrated one, with articles in the leftist media generating “worried responses” from “citizens,” who are actually well-known activists on the left.
Ben-Ari holds a doctorate in Land of Israel Studies from Bar Ilan University. He specialized in the archaeology and history of the Temple Mount, the topic he will be lecturing on at Ariel.
