French writer Lévy flexes diplomatic muscles with Israel

French writer Bernard Henri Lévy, one of the architects behind France’s superquick recognition of Libya’s rebel authority, claims he has started diplomatic talks between the fledgling National Transitional Council and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The AFP reports that Lévy, who recently met with Netanyahu for 90 minutes, brought with him word that the council would seek diplomatic ties with Israel if it came to power:

“The main point was that the future Libyan regime would be moderate and anti-terrorist and will be concerned with justice for the Palestinians and security for Israel,” Levy said.

“The future regime will maintain normal relations with other democratic countries, including Israel,” he added.

Lévy was instrumental in arranging a meeting between members of the transitional council and French Prime Minister Nicholas Sarkozy back in March. As a result, France became the first country to recognize the council as a legitimate leader of the country.
