Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday gave his opinion on the controversy surrounding the the new cultural center in Ariel and said "someone that considers himself to be a person of culture should not need to get involved with boycotts.

"I think that the cultural center is important, and Ariel is important," the prime minister noted, as he explained during a government meeting that he was involved at various different stages in the establishment of the cultural center in Ariel.

"Unfortunately I was abroad during the opening and therefore I was not able to attend. I heard that there were people who called for the center to be boycotted and attacked Culture and Sport Minister Limor Livnat. Boycotts - we know how they begin but not how they end."
