“Israel is strong, but it’s indestructible now,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu quipped in a meeting with visiting American movie star Chuck Norris — an avid martial artist — on Wednesday in Jerusalem.

Footage of the friendly exchange — which included the Israeli leader joking with his security detail that, with Norris around, they could take the day off — was posted on Netanyahu’s Facebook page.

Norris, who is visiting Israel with his wife, Gena O’Kelley, told Netanyahu, “You will always have my support.”

    Claiming Israel is “indestructible” is the height of hubris. Not even the USA is “indestructible”. Strong states like Israel – and the USA – can be very easily destroyed from within. All that is needed are politicians like Trump, and -yes- Netanyahu.
