Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz recognizes the University in Ariel in Samaria. They will receive 50 million fresh shekels.
The editorial heads of Jerusalem Post still support Zionism. In the Tuesday editor, the editorial gives a solid support for the Jews of Ariel.
This is what the Chief Editor Steve Linde has approved:
” Some cowardly Israeli academics oppose the idea of forming an Israeli University beyond the gee line. Because doing so might increase calls for International academia to boycott other existing and proven Israeli Institutions”.
The newspaper reports that Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz refuse to boycott the university in Ariel. To the radical opposite: On Sunday he wrote a letter to Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar, recognizing the Ariel University Center with its 13.000 students. The Ministry of Finance also granted the university 50 million fresh shekels.

As a Christian Zionist, I rejoice of the Zionist commitments of the present Likud led government of Israel.
I also rejoice when I see the Zionist commitments of the editorial heads of the Jerusalem Post.
We should take notice of the language used in this editorial. To call academics in Israel for “cowards” is a non diplomatic language. It is yet another example of the political debate in Israel getting hotter, and the divide’s wider.
True Jews and truth seekers among secular Zionists will recognize Ariel as a part of Israel, equally Jewish as the cities of Tel Aviv and Haifa.
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
If Ariel is not a fully integrated part of the state of Israel, the Jewish homeland has no proper Biblical based foundation. It will fall when the stormy weathers will get to rough.
