 The 76-year-old is well known for his deep love for the country. In fact, during the last two elections Norris even became a spokesman for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and made a video encouraging Israelis to vote for his right-wing Likud party.

The celebrity, who is often rumored to have mythical powers of strength, was invited to meet the Prime Minister, who joked that with Chuck Norris at his side he would not need any bodyguards. “Israel is a strong country,” Netanyahu said, “but now that you are here, we are indestructible.

Norris responded that “You will always have my support.”
