While the Israeli diplomat stated that the encounter served as a “break from Middle East tensions,” it was not clear for what purpose and how long Norris was in the Holy Land.
Norris has in the past highlighted that he has filmed three movies in Israel, including the 1986-action thriller Delta Force, directed by Israeli filmmaker Menachem Golan. He has also voiced his support for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and endorsed him in both of the country’s last two elections.
