MK Amir Peretz (Labor) on Tuesday said the decision to make Ariel University Center a university reflected a policy of favoring the West Bank over the Israeli periphery.

"Netanyahu's time in office will be remembered as a time of abandoning the periphery and the weak in favor of the settlers and the Haredi population," Peretz said, adding that the decision weakens the rest of Israel's universities and colleges and would have a negative affect on Israel's international standing.
