French President Emmanuel Macron has condemned “unacceptable” comments made by an Israeli official who publicly supported far-right contender Marine Le Pen before the French parliamentary elections.

Israeli news outlets reported that Diaspora Affairs Minister Amichai Chikli stated that the leader of the National Rally party would be “excellent for Israel.

An enraged Macron called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to complain about the remarks.

“I believe Netanyahu and I share the same opinion. “It is not a personal matter,” Chilkli was reported as adding.

According to Chilkli, Le Pen’s support is based on her positions on Hamas, the International Criminal Court, where Israeli leaders are accused of war crimes, and “the Jewish community’s fight against anti-Semitism.

According to two sources acquainted with the phone call, the French president informed Netanyahu that Chikli’s words were “unacceptable” and considered interference.

According to reports, the call ended with Netanyahu promising not to allow his ministers to make additional pronouncements about internal French affairs.

According to Haaretz, one unnamed Israeli official described Chikli’s behaviour as a “diplomatic bomb”.

In recent years, Le Pen and the National Rally have embraced a pro-Israel posture on foreign affairs in a bid to steer the party away from accusations of anti-Semitism after her father and party founder allegedly referred to Nazi death chambers as a “detail of history”.

During the second round of voting, Foreign Minister Israel Katz tweeted that Israel is “not involved in the French elections and respects French democracy”.
