Ariel: From 2 Tents to a University Town

(IsraelNN.com) Mayor Ron Nachman of Ariel says that in spite of the position of Israel as a whole and the Samarian city in particular, he cannot be fully happy this Independence Day. Interviewed by Arutz Sheva’s Hebrew service, he said that the biggest problem that Israel suffers from, more than ever, is never-ending subversion from sources which can’t act on their platforms through elections and other democratic means.

He said, “If there’s something that makes me sad on Yom Hazicharon, it’s a dulling of the feelings that those groups demonstrate, especially on Memorial Day.” He added that sources outside the country try to force things on Israel that they would not accept themselves in the name of equality, and their voices are weakening the people.

On the optimistic side, he remembered how the city started with two tents and grew to include a university, an industrial area, a sports center and a center for developing youth leaders.
