Benjamin NetanyahuA pro-Israel activist says he remains pro-Benjamin Netanyahu as the prime minister faces tough challenges at home.

On Monday the Israeli leader (pictured) demanded to meet with the state's witnesses in the three separate corruption investigations that could lead to potential corruption charges against him. Netanyahu – who has denied any wrongdoing – claims the investigations are slanted against him and that a face-to-face meeting would help reveal the truth. He continues to govern with a razor-thin coalition as the April 9 parliamentary elections loom.

Gary Bauer is president of American Values and serves on the executive board of Christians United for Israel. He has been a longtime supporter of Netanyahu.

Bauer, Gary (American Values)"I must admit that I'm somewhat skeptical about what role politics in Israel is playing in the attacks on the prime minister," he tells OneNewsNow. "On issue after issue, he's always done the right thing – so I will remain pro-Netanyahu unless I see some reason to change my mind."

Bauer contends the Israeli people will not elect a government that will make bad deals with Israeli's sworn enemies. "The Israeli people are going to err on the side of national security," he states. "No more taking inappropriate risks with enemies like Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, which have never reciprocated in these agreements."

Bauer continues to believe that Israel and the United States will work together against their mutual enemies.
