Entebbe: Israeli rescue from Israeli terrorist attack?There are a few little points in this saga that might be of interest or use to Trivial Pursuit enthusiasts. As the article says, there was one Israeli killed. What it doesn’t say is that he was, Jonathan Netanyahu, the brother of Benjamin Netanyahu, former Israeli PM. Also the Israelis built Entebbe airport so they knew their way around it better than the hijackers. And finally, the article makes no mention of a passenger of dual British-Israeli nationality, Dora Bloch, who seems to have been murdered and mutilated by the Idi Amin regime as a result of the hijack and raid.
I pass no comment on the validity of these claims, each person should decide for themself.
