Israel’s Netanyahu Meets With Chuck Norris, Dismisses ‘Obsolete’ Security Detail

By

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu this week met with his good friend Chuck Norris, and hilariously played on popular Internet memes regarding the legendary action star and martial artist.

Netanyahu met with Norris and his wife in Jerusalem, after the couple made a surprise visit to Israel that included a stop to pray at the Western Wall of the Temple Mount.

As Netanyahu shook Norris’ hand, he joked, “Israel is strong, but NOW we’re indestructible.”

Norris chuckled, but Netanyahu wasn’t finished…

“I think we can ask our security people to leave now, they aren’t needed any longer,” said the Israeli leader, referencing Norris’ mythical status.

It was all in good fun, and the two seemed to have a very warm meeting.

Norris actually campaigned for Netanyahu during Israel’s national elections in 2013 and 2015.
