Then the news came in - Israeli commandos had landed in Uganda's Entebbe airport and rescued a planeload of passengers hijacked by Islamic terrorists. Jonathan Netanyahu led the party and celebrated our 4th with an action that said manhood was still alive. Thanks, Jonathan. The world owes you. I owe you.

Israel's Operation Thunderbolt story goes beyond absurd.
On July 4, 1976 four C-130 tranports and two 727 jetliners leave Israel for a 7.5-hour flight to Entebbe.
You have to believe six transports flew 2400 miles without being detected by Arab or African radars.
You have to believe that these 200,000-lb transports were able to glide in - at night - without landing lights - at a very small, isolated airstrip where there are 100 Uganda soldiers and 8 terrorists on high alert. And that no one hears or sees these howling beomoths.
You can hear these things a mile away.
Israel said there were snipers and sentries on the Entebbe control tower, but they didn't see 6 planes landing 1000' away.
And oddly, the Ugandan mig fighter squadron stationed at Entebbe didn't scramble and there weren't any pilots around.
The story is ridiculous.
It is simply more Israeli propaganda.

A further tragedy and insult to all was that Idi Imin spent his last years in luxury was permitted to die in his bed.
