Consular officer who attacked government summoned for 'consultations'

Nadav Tamir, the Israeli consul general in Boston who attacked the Netanyahu government's handling of relations with the US in a letter that was leaked to the media this past week, has been summoned to Jerusalem for 'consultations' by foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman.
Israel's consul-general in Boston Nadav Tamir, will arrive in Jerusalem next week to give a "clarification" to the ministry's director-general, according to the statement. The summons was ordered by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

The decision followed Tamir sending a blunt and extremely critical letter of Israel's policies toward the US to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, which was leaked to Channel 10 on Thursday night. The letter said that Israel's policies were causing damage to strategic ties with the US.
Here's hoping he's dismissed. We have enough enemies in our midst without having them 'representing' us abroad. If he can't represent the government's position, he doesn't belong there.

Tamir should be shown the door and cashiered out of the diplomatic service. It has no place for those who cannot or don't want to carry out government policy.
