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

Norris, a devout Christian who is well known for his outspoken support for conservative causes, believes that Netanyahu is the right leader in a region like the Middle East.

“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,” Norris said.
