WATCH: Angelina Jolie's Dad Is Still a Warmongering Lunatic

Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight took to YouTube yesterday to voice his support for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his disdain for President Barack Obama.


Voight began bluntly, declaring that “I love Israel, and I want to see Israel survive. I don’t want to see it overtaken by the mad men of this world. President Obama does not love Israel.”

“He doesn’t want Bibi Netanyahi to win this upcoming election,” he continued, before abruptly shifting gears. “America has not been the same since [Obama's] presidency. I beg everyone — all of you — to understand the truth.”

Addressing the president’s decision to engage in nuclear talks with Iran, Voight said that “everyone who believes that deal-making is the solution to what Israel faces are as wrong as Neville Chamberlain believing he made a peace deal with Hitler.”

“We must learn from history where the true danger lies,” Voight concluded. “I pray to God to keep Israel safe, and America as well.”
