French President Emmanuel Macron’s claim that Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki is a “far-right anti-Semite” were “an unacceptable lie and slur,” renowned U.S. Rabbi Shmuley Boteach has claimed.

The French president made the remarks during an interview with French media late last week, pulling no punches in his critique of Morawiecki as a “far-right anti-Semite banning LGBT people.”

Boteach is one of the world’s leading relationship and spirituality experts; his books have been translated into 17 languages, and he lectures and makes TV and radio appearances all over the world.

Earlier last week, Morawiecki called upon European leaders to impose “clear, decisive sanctions” against Russia. Referring to the massacre against civilians in the village of Bucha near Kyiv he said: “President Macron, how many times have you negotiated with Putin? What have you achieved? Have you stopped any of those activities?”

On Wednesday, Macron said that allegations of Prime Minister Morawiecki about his negotiations with Putin regarding the war in Ukraine are “unjustified” and “outrageous, but do not surprise him,” as according to him, Morawiecki is interfering with the French election campaign.
