Students’ Anger as Student Union Plans Meeting with Abbas

Controversy is growing over the Israeli Student Union’s plan to send a delegation of 200 students to Ramallah to meet with Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, Maariv/nrg reports. The plan to send the delegates was controversial from the moment the decision was made early this week, with students accusing the Student Union of promoting a left-wing political agenda.

However, according to the report, the student response moved up a notch Wednesday with an angry letter from 25 Student Union representatives across the country to the organization’s head.
