Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stands next to a free-electron laser (FEL) during a visit to the Ariel University Centre in the West Bank Jewish settlement of Ariel January 8, 2013. Israel upgraded the Ariel campus to a university last month, a move that has put the school at the centre of a debate at the core of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: how the settlements will figure in defining a future Palestinian state.
