Chuck Norris endorses Netanyahu
American action star follows Donald Trump with pro-Bibi video ahead of Tuesday's Knesset elections
VIDEO - First it was billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump, and now it’s a name from the past – 1980s action star Chuck Norris, who is throwing his support behind Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his bid for reelection in this week’s vote.

 

“Shalom, this is Chuck Norris. With the elections just days away, Israel has an important decision to make, so let me tell you what Chuck would do,” says the star of "Walker, Texas Ranger," a television series that ran from 1993 to 2001, in a video posted on YouTube.

 

“You might think I’m a tough guy in my films, but in a rough neighborhood like the Middle East, Israel has its own tough guy. His name is Bibi Netanyahu,” says Norris who also appeared in a number of action movies, including "The Delta Force" (1986) and – in an attempted comeback – in 2012’s "The Expendables II" alongside Sylvester Stallone.

 

 

“Bibi brought the pressing issue of Israel’s security to the world, speaking loudly and clearly to the United Nations and in Congress, bringing the world together to put sanctions on Iran,” says Norris.

 

“He has raised a wall along the whole southern border of Israel, stopped the missiles from raining on Israel, and showed Hamas they will not be tolerated. He also made the bravest decision in securing the release of Gilad Shalit.

So vote for Benjamin Netanyahu, because a strong prime minister is a strong Israel.”

 

Norris’ video, as well as Trump’s, were funded and produced by JDPR, an Israeli public relations firm.

 

Both videos support the Likud campaign message: “A strong prime minister, a strong Israel.”
