Israel reprimands French envoy over Temple Mount observers proposal

The Foreign Ministry called in French envoy Patrick Maisonnave on Monday to protest Paris' proposal to place international observers on the Temple Mount, and complained about France's penchant to put forward initiatives concerning Israel without consulting it or taking its interests into account.
A Foreign Ministry spokesman characterized the meeting as “sharp,” and said it dealt with the entirety of Israeli-French relations.
Paris angered Israel earlier this year when it considered bringing a resolution to the Security Council calling for negotiations toward a Palestinian state by 2017 based on the pre-1967 lines.
