      MK Ohayon: Haifa U's Conduct is Inappropriate

      MK Shimon Ohayon (Likud Beytenu) said on Sunday that he will demand an urgent discussion both at the Knesset plenum and in the Knesset’s Education Committee, over Haifa University’s decision to refuse to award an honorary doctorate to Professor Yisrael (Robert) Aumann due to his pro-Israel politics.

      Ohayon told Arutz Sheva that it was unacceptable that a university would make decisions based on political positions.
