SHARE Benjamin Netanyahu just received an endorsement from Chuck Norris

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has seen his standing plummet in recent weeks, and on Tuesday, voters will go to the polls decide if he gets another term.

On Monday, martial arts and movie legend Chuck Norris offered up his endorsement of Netanyahu, urging people keep the prime minister in office.

“I saw a man who loves his country with all his heart and soul,” Norris said of Netanyahu’s speech before Congress. “I also saw a strong leader that is absolutely crucial for the safety of the Israeli people.”

Making endorsements — political or otherwise — is nothing new for Norris.

His track record of picking winners isn’t exactly stellar.

For example, he once got caught up in all the NFL hype and gave Tim Tebow a ringing endorsement, calling him the “Ultimate Clutch Player.”

Norris also endorsed Newt Gingrich for president. And we all know how that turned out.

Plus, there was that time Norris made this video for Mike Huckabee’s presidential run:

Either way, Norris’ plug for Netanyahu most likely carries more weight than Scott Baio’s endorsement of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker for president.
