(JNS) Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met last week with seven NFL players as they concluded a six-day whirlwind tour of the Jewish state, and told them they should use their influence to support Israel.

“All of you are gladiators, and you have an enormous following. Now Israel is fighting in the arena in the battle for truth. I think the most important part of your visit is that, having seen the truth, you can now fight for it,” said Netanyahu.

The Jewish brothers Mitch Schwartz of the Kansas City Chiefs and former NFL player Geoff Schwartz presented Netanyahu with jerseys with his nickname “Bibi” on them.

The seven NFL players on the group were Josh Norman of the Washington Redskins, Chris Harris Jr. of the Denver Broncos, Vic Beasley of the Atlanta Falcons, Avery Williamson of the Tennessee Titans and Austin Seferian-Jenkins of the New York Jets.
