Israeli Reaction to A&M Peace Campus

Reaction continues on both sides of the Atlantic to the formal announcement that Texas A&M University wants to open a branch in Israel.

Deputy Consul for the Israeli Consulate in Houston, Maya Kadosh, says one of the keys was a shared vision for educating students as opposed to selling degrees, which was a problem in the 1990’s.

Kadosh says locating the campus in Nazareth will make people from all three big religions feel comfortable.

Officials gathered at the home of Israeli President Shimon Peres where the agreement was signed.
