Jon Voight, a veteran actor who won an Oscar for “Coming Home” in the 1970s, is visiting Israel to film a new movie.

Voight pays a visit to Jewish settlements in the northern West Bank with representatives of the Shomron Regional Council.

Yossi Dagan, head of the regional council, presents Voight with a bottle of wine from the Har Bracha winery and tells him that it is “a great honor to host an important actor like you and more importantly a friend of Israel.”

According to a statement from the council, Voight says: “I don’t understand why Judea and Samaria is called the West Bank, when it’s clear that if you look at a map Samaria is at the heart of the land of Israel.”
