Charles Krauthammer says he’s known Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for over three decades and he believes Netanyahu’s unique history makes him “the right man” for Israel’s current crisis with Iran.

“I think he is the right man for the right place,” Krauthmmer told The Daily Caller. “The Israelis know who they can trust in a time of crisis and that’s why they chose him.”

Elaborating on Netanyahu’s biography, Krautahammer noted Netanyahu’s late brother Yoni, the celebrated Israeli war hero who planned and led the remarkable operation to rescue Israeli hostages in Entebbe, Uganda on July 4, 1976. Yoni was the only Israeli soldier to fall in the successful raid. (RELATED: July 4, Entebbe, and Israel’s line in the sand)
