Jon Voight: “President Obama Does Not Love Israel” (VIDEO)
The President has been under fire in recent weeks for clashing with Israel’s Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who gave a controversial address to Congress last week. Netanyahu is up for re-election on Tuesday, and Voight is making it clear where he stands.
“I love Israel. I want to see Israel survive and not be overtaken by the madmen of this world. President Obama does not love Israel. His whole agenda is to control Israel, and this way, he can be friends with all of Israel’s enemies,” says the actor.
He continues, “America has not been the same since his presidency. I beg everyone, all of you, to understand the truth.” Voight goes on to suggest that Obama’s dealings with Iran are as misguided as those who once thought they were making peace deals with Hitler, and says, “We must learn from history where the true danger lies. I pray to God to keep Israel safe, and America as well.”
Voight has been a longtime supporter of the Jewish state. In 2011, he said he wanted daughter Angelina Jolie to accompany him on a trip there, and just last year, he slammed Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem for allegedly encouraging anti-Semitism when they signed an open letter accusing Israel of carrying out a genocide in Gaza.
The movie star has also made no secret of his dislike for Obama, saying on Fox News last year that the President caused “a civil war in this country.” Check out Voight’s latest comments in the video below, and tell us what you think.
