JERUSALEM (AFP/Reuters) - Israel on Sunday rejected the idea of foreign countries recognising a Palestinian state without a negotiated peace agreement, after Frances Foreign Minister hinted at such a scenario. Israel also said it wanted to include 2 Jewish shrines in the occupied West Bank in a national plan to rehabilitate some 150 Jewish and Zionist heritage sites, drawing condemnation from the Palestinians. Imposing this kind of semblance of a partial solution from outside goes against the very idea of peace, a senior Israeli official told AFP on condition of anonymity. Granting recognition when the issues of the conflict have not been settled would add fuel to the fire. This would only push the Palestinians to be even more intransigent and thus make any compromise impossible, he added. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was quoted in a statement as saying that Rachels Tomb, near the city of Bethlehem, and the Tomb of the Patriarchs, a site holy to Muslims and Jews in the tinderbox city of Hebron, would be part of the plan. I also intend to include Rachels Tomb ... and the Tomb of the Patriarchs, Netanyahu said during a special cabinet meeting held in Tel Hai. Since I was asked, I would like to make my intentions clear, and this is what will be. The Fatah party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said in a statement that the decision was an attempt by Netanyahus government to wreck international efforts aimed at returning to (peace) talks, which were suspended over a year ago. This particular violation is especially dangerous because it will add to the religious component of the conflict in a way that might bring dangerous consequences, said Ghassan Khatib, a spokesman for the Palestinian government in Ramallah. In Amman, French Prime Minister Francois Fillon said Paris is considering recognising Palestinian state before its borders have been negotiated in an effort to kick-start Middle East peace talks, . Frances Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner told French weekend newspaper Journal du Dimanche he was tempted by the idea of international recognition of a Palestinian state even before its borders were negotiated. Kouchners proposal showed Frances willingness to accelerate the (peace) process, to take initiatives which will kick off negotiations which are taking too long to start, Fillon told a news conference in Jordan. French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Fillon plan to meet Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in Paris on Monday (today).
