2. What kind of imbecilles has written this ?
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (03.24.14)
Chuck Norris a world champ in Karate, has certainly something to offer as a teacher regarding mortal combat. Karate is not about to be Big and strong and full of vigour, it is about Your Mind. if one thinks wrong in mortal combat, one loses. To be a World Champ testifies to the fact, that this man has something others dont have. in short. Arn.
3. OMG don't you have a sense of humor?
Daniel ,   Amsterdam   (03.24.14)
4. This attests to Chuck Norris' greatest....
Chill ,   Israel   (03.24.14)
That the author of the article is still living since Chuck obviously knows.
5. Norris represents gutsy leadership Israel needs.
Chaim ,   Israel   (03.24.14)
If Norris studied Israeli politics more in depth, I believe he'd endorse someone like Feiglin or Ben Ari instead of Bibi. However, Norris has his heart in the right place and I greatly appreciate his support. Norris represents the morally certain gutsy leadership Israel badly needs.
6. This is two nobody's criticizing a somebody!

Who are the writers Akiva Novick and Yehuda Shohat? Maybe Chuck Norris has something to say that is worth listening to? Unlike this nasty jealous little article. Interesting and important people attend his talks so they must feel that there's something to be learned from him. After serving in the United States Air Force, Norris began his rise to fame as a martial artist. Norris made history in 1990 when he was the first Westerner in the documented history of Tae Kwon Do to be given the rank of 8th Degree Black Belt Grand Master. In 1999, Norris was inducted into the Martial Arts History Museum's Hall of Fame. On July 1, 2000, Norris was presented the Golden Lifetime Achievement Award by the World Karate Union Hall of Fame. Norris is a devout Christian and politically conservative. He has written several books on Christianity and donated to a number of Republican candidates and causes. In 2007 and 2008, he campaigned for former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, who was running for the Republican nomination for president in 2008. And these writers make fun of him?!
7. April 1st is next week isn't it ?
deavman ,   Akko   (03.24.14)
8. Chuck Norris...
Barry ,   Tel Aviv   (03.24.14)
Chuck Norris counted to infinity. Three times. Chuck Norris owns the greatest poker face of all-time. It helped him win the 1983 world series of poker despite him holding just a joker, a 2 of clubs, a 7 of spades, and a green number 4 from Uno and a monopoly ‘get out of jail free’ card.
9. What the article failed to reveal
Paqid Yirmeyahu ,   (03.24.14)
Chuck works in Modiin until sunset, after which he flies to Tel Aviv (no plane needed, of course) -- carrying his horse on every night flight.
10. Sounds as scholarly as a "latkes vs. hamentaschen" symposium
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (03.25.14)
And like the aforementioned, this gathering sounds like a lot of fun. Clearly the authors have an undeveloped sense of humor. And yes, there was as much substance as found at most post-modernist humanities conferences.
11. Chuck never lost to Bruce Lee
James McNamara ,   LA US   (03.25.14)
Chuck Norris is here..Bruce Lee isn't ... Chuck Norris can cure Bieber Fever... Aliens fear that Chuck Norris might abduct them.......Chuck Norris can Moon walk on the Sun.......
12. Chuck Norris is mentioned in the Bible.
James McNamara ,   LA US   (03.25.14)
Chuck Norris wrote the Bible....
13. Grow a beard, wear black robes, bob up down in prayer, easy
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (03.25.14)
...and claim you speak to God, and he has chosen you, and given you land on Med. coast, with rare Southern California weather.
14. Far-left organ Yediot is the delusional one
Leon   (03.25.14)
Fantasy after fantasy, nonsense piled on nonsense, that's what you get at the YNet.
15. That's a bit much
Elmo Glick ,   Brill Building, NYC   (03.24.15)
I know Chuck has done many great things, but I doubt seriously he wrote the Bible.
