on 19 Comments

From Ma’an. The French National Front is far right, and has neo-Nazi friends. Now who is delegitimizing Israel?

Israel’s ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor attended a luncheon for France’s National Front leader Marine Le Pen “by accident,” his spokeswoman told AFP on Thursday.

Prosor attended the event in honor of the far-right leader at the United Nations in New York. It was Le Pen’s first meeting with an Israeli official.

Prosor’s spokeswoman Karean Peretz told AFP that the ambassador’s attendance was the result of a misunderstanding. She did not elaborate.

The French newspaper Le Monde reported that Prosor told reporters before entering the event: “I am a free man.” After the meeting, he told reporters: “We value diversity of opinions.”
