You write, that Palestinians would not want to study in Ariel university. But the fact is that they do study there, along with the Israeli students. As, by the way, in all Israeli universities. Still, I do not understand how the lecturers or students of Ariel university can affect the outcome of the conflict in the Middle East. Is it up to Ariel lecturers to take the arms from the mass murderers from the Palestinian private armies? How will upgrading the status of Ariel colledge to university affect this main obstacle on the way for the Middle Eastern peace -- the mutiple private armies and foreign policies on the Palestinian side? I think, it will have no impact at all. Palestinians must become a nation to have their state. Ariel colledge has nothing to do with the internal currents of the Palestinian social and political life. The idea of upgrading Ariel colledge is not a new one, but I believe, that the decision to upgrade its status now was indeed hastened by the racist decision of AUT to boycott the Israeli universities.
