Israeli, French Envoys Face Off Online


Ynet news reports: It’s not every day that two senior ambassadors debate on one of the world’s most popular social networks.

But that’s exactly what happened this week when the French ambassador to Washington, Gerard Araud and his Israeli counterpart Ron Dermer, exchanged barbs in front of everyone on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

It all started with tweets by the senior French ambassador, who was formerly French ambassador to Israel and the United Nations. Araud retweeted statements made by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius in conversations on achieving peace in Syria, which stated that “there can’t be a political negotiation when one side is murdering the other.”
