On the Anniversary of the Entebbe Rescue

Our American Independence Day also marks the anniversary of the miraculous rescue at Entebbe. It serves as a reminder that Arab terrorism directed at Israel is not a minor aspect of their struggle to destroy that bastion of Western democracy in the generally anti-democratic Middle East, but has always been a major part of their strategy.

Terrorism is not a reaction to anything Israel has done other than exist.

On this Independence Day, Gilad Shalid, Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev are still held by Arab terrorists, from Hamas and Hezbollah, with the support of the rogue regimes in Iran and Syria.

The international community must demand their unconditional release, without any rewards for the terrorists who have brazenly violated not only the nebulous entity called international law but all standards of basic human decency.
