J: "Maybe I`m missing something here, but why is the Minister of Defense making these sort of determinations?" Yeah, you are missing something. You are missing the fact that all authority over occupied territory rests in the hands of the commander of the army of occupation i.e. the buck stops on HIS desk, and no further. So if the IDF commander in the West Bank signs an order declaring that this college is now "Ariel University" then that college is, indeed, now a university. Q: So what would make an IDF commander sign such an un-military order? A: A directive from his superior ordering him to sign just such an order. Q: So who is this dude's superior? A: Barak, Ehud.
