Jon Voight backs Netanyahu, says 'Obama doesn't love Israel'

American Actor Jon Voight released a message of support for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday, two days ahead of the Israeli elections.

"I love Israel," Voight states at the beginning of his video, which was posted to YouTube. "I want to see Israel survive and not be overtaken by the madmen of this world."

He goes on to say that unlike him, US President Barack Obama does not love Israel, and aims to "control Israel, and  this way he can be friends with all of Israel's enemies."

Voight rules out Zionist Union candidate Isaac Herzog as a potential leader of Israel, saying, "Those who believe 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 true danger lies."

Voight, who is the father of actress Angeline Jolie, is a staunch supporter of Israel who defended the country during last summer's Operation Protective Edge in Gaza.
