Prof. Aumann Rejected Due to Political Views

Member of Knesset Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) appealed to the board of the University of Haifa against the decision to reject the title of honorary professor to Nobel Prize winner Prof. Yisrael Aumann because of his political views. MK Shaked sent the letter to the office of Ami Ayalon, Chairman of the Executive Committee of the University of Haifa, Minister of Education Shay Piron and others to reconsider the decision. 

Prof. Aumann won the Nobel Prize in 2005 for his work in game theory. He has been a member of Professors for Strong Israel and stated that territorial compromise is a form of "blackmailer paradox."
