Israel/Uganda: Ehud Barak and Y. Netanyahu humiliate the dictator Idi Amin Dada.

 
On June 27, 1976, Air France flight 139, an Airbus A300 of Air France with 244 passengers on board from Lod Airport in Tel Aviv in Israel to Paris is hijacked by a group of four terrorists after takeoff from Athens, Greece.
        
Two terrorists were Palestinians and two Germans, including a woman, Brigitte Kuhlmann (1947-1976). They were members of the Revolutionary Cells (RZ), a group of extreme left of the Federal Republic of Germany founded by Johannes Weinrich (borm in 1947), a former collaborator of the Stasi, right arm of the Venezuelan terrorist Ilich Ramirez Sanchez alias Carlos (imprisoned in France).
        
The Pirates were led by Wilfried Bose (1949-1976). Nearly one-third of the passengers were Israeli Jews and others.
        
After a stop forced to Benghazi in Libya, the plane lands in Entebbe, 32 km from Kampala in Uganda, where three Palestinian terrorists were waiting.
        
The next day, the terrorists separated the hostages into two groups: those who wore an Israeli passport or Jewish, or 103 people on one side and non-Jews on the other.
        
They demanded the immediate release of nearly 54 terrorists incarcerated in Israel, Germany and Switzerland and a ransom of 5 million U.S. dollars.
        
Terrorists ultimatum fixed beyond which all the hostages would be executed if they did not get satisfaction. Conditions unacceptable to France, Israel and its allies.
        
To show their "availability" in the negotiations, the terrorists decided to unconditionally release all hostages non-Jews.
        
Now it only remained as hostages in Entebbe and Israelis and other Jews in the Diaspora. And the French crew of Air France, who had voluntarily chosen to stay in Entebbe with the rest of the passengers.
        
Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin (1922-1995) asked the General Motta Gur (1930-1995), to prepare carefully a commando of 35 men charged with freeing the hostages in Entebbe, with minimal damage to humans.
        
Two future Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Benjamin Netanyahu were directly affected by the Entebbe raid. Ehud Barak participated in Operation "Thunder" led by Colonel Yonatan Netanyahu aka Yoni (1946-1976), Benjamin's older brother, under the command of General Dan Shomron (1937-2008).
        
On the night in 2 to 3 July 1976, four C-130 Hercules aircraft traveled 35,000 miles from the military base in Tel Aviv, with the complicity of Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta (1899-1978). They landed at night in a violent storm on the Entebbe airport, violating the airspace, territory and national sovereignty of Uganda.
        
For an hour and twenty-nine minutes, all seven terrorists and 17 Ugandan soldiers were killed, two hostages were killed by the bullets of Israeli colonel Yonatan Netanyahu and was shot dead by a Ugandan military.
        
The Columbia Dora Bloch (74 years) who had been unwell during the hijacking was carried out at Mulago Hospital (Kampala) on the orders of Idi Amin Dada (1925-2003) in retaliation.
        
Entebbe airport was severely damaged, the control tower totally destroyed, four Mig-17 and MiG-21Mig seven brand new Ugandan army were destroyed on the ground.
        
On Sunday, July 4, 1976, the world woke up completely amazed because the Entebbe raid is one of the commandos rescue the most spectacular of the twentieth century.
        
Idi Amin was humiliated and Africa sounded.
