    - Ariel college is and will remain a regular college, no matter how it calls itself. The level and output of research is actually below that of several other colleges in Israel, not to even compare it to real universities. - As much as I have lost respect for Barak, he did NOT agree to the establishment of a University in the occupied territories. He just approved the decision of a right-wing settler committee (made up of so-called 'respected' - but still right-wing - scientists) to upgrade Ariel from a college to a college that's named 'university center'. See, even those right-wing scientists could not ignore the fact that the level of science at Ariel is so low that it would put real Israeli academics in a very bad light if Ariel would be called a University. - Petty politics cannot change actual facts: if it waggles like a duck, babbles like a duck, it is and will remain a duck without a Ph.D. Michael
