William Hague... West Bank college upgrade


The British government has responded furiously to a decision by an Israeli committee to agree to grant university status to a college in the West Bank and called for the move to be reconsidered.


In strongly worded remarks after the Israeli cabinet approved the move to upgrade Ariel College, Foreign Secretary William Hague expressed his disappointment at the creation of "an additional barrier to peace with the Palestinians".


He said that if the upgrade, which is still subject to approval by the High Court of Justice and the Attorney General, went ahead, "this would lead to the creation of Israel's first university beyond the Green Line, in a settlement illegal under internatonal law".
