Meretz head Zehava Gal-On on Monday called the Defense Minister Ehud Barak's decision to upgrade the status of the Ariel University Center "unfortunate" and said it legitimized the "continued occupation and the destruction of democracy," according to Army Radio.

"This is a political decision that is meant to assist Netanyahu in the elections," she said. "This decision... will perpetuate Israel's isolation within the international community."
