Israel recalls Boston envoy over critical memo

JERUSALEM – Israel's Foreign Ministry says it has summoned for consultation a senior Israeli diplomat who in a confidential memo criticized the government for harming ties with the U.S.

A ministry statement said Saturday that Israel's consul-general in Boston would arrive in Jerusalem next week to give a "clarification" to the ministry's director-general.

It said Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman ordered the summons.

Consul-general Nadav Tamir wrote an internal memo that was leaked to Israel's Channel 10 TV. It said that Israel's public clashes with Washington over the U.S. demand for a settlement construction freeze is causing "strategic damage to Israel" and undermining the special relationship between the two countries.
