Israel was officially admitted as full member of CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, in a ceremony in Geneva Wednesday. Israel is the 21st member state of CERN and the only country outside Europe to have achieved full membership.
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman represented Israel at the ceremony held at the CERN Globe of Science and Innovation, at the end of which the Israeli flag was added to the line of flags representing the member states of the organization.
Lieberman said that the admission of Israel as a full member of the organization is a recognition of the high level and quality of scientific research in Israel and its contribution to the world.
Chalk up another failure for the BDSers.
