The Entebbe rescue mission is one of history's most important moments

Ari Lieberman on Front Page reminds everyone of the daring rescue of an Air France plane hijacked to north Africa by IDF officials:
On July 4th, 1976, as America celebrated its Bicentennial, four Israeli Air Force C-130 Hercules planes carrying over 100 Jewish passengers, twelve Air France flight personnel, and their Israeli rescuers landed safely at Ben Gurion Airport. The safe landing of civilians and commandos marked the end of a week-long, nightmarish drama that gripped all of Israel.

The saga began on June 27, when a Paris-bound Air France commercial airliner took off from Tel-Aviv. The plane was scheduled for a stopover in Athens. Lax security at Athens International Airport enabled four terrorists with forged passports – two from the notorious West German Baader-Meinhof Gang and two from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – to board the flight with their guns, grenades and explosives.

Their hijacking adventure set into motion a sequence of events that would reverberate around the world. It would also ultimately serve to further enhance the prestige and reputation of Israel’s vaunted, specialized commando units and intelligences services.
You can read the rest. It's practically an important subject for the 4th of July, since the rescue took place around that time back in 1976.

Jonathan S. Tobin [editor in chief of JNS] said:

“She [Ilhan Omar] has made a name for herself,
not by talking about the concerns of Minnesotans,
but by the outrageous manner in which she has
trafficked in anti-Semitic tropes
as she pursues her advocacy against Israel.

Along with Tlaib, she is one of the only two
open supporters of the anti-Semitic BDS movement
that promotes boycotts against the State of Israel.

She has claimed that Jews are buying the support
of Congress for Israel and questioned the loyalty
of her congressional colleagues who are pro-Israel.

Despite this, the Democrats elevated [Ilhan] Omar
to a seat on the House Foreign Relations Committee
and refused to name her in a resolution
denouncing anti-Semitism.”

Is it Ilhan Omar’s Democratic Party now?

Jonathan S. Tobin [editor in chief of JNS] said:

“If even a popular, pro-Israel Jewish Democrat
like Adler was afraid to stand up to Ilhan Omar
in his own city, then it’s not clear under
what circumstance any member of that party
would think they could afford to do so.

That means that the battle to quarantine
an anti-Semite like Omar to the margins
of American politics has been lost.

Not only are she and Tlaib among the
young rock stars of their party, they
have far greater influence than anyone
would have thought only a few months ago.”

Is it Ilhan Omar’s Democratic Party now?

Jonathan S. Tobin said:

“Like most of the rest of the Democrats,
[Pete] Buttigieg [mayor of South Bend]
seems to see Israel’s legitimacy as linked
to the creation of a Palestinian state alongside it.”

“At its core, the Democrats’ conception
of the U.S.-Israel relationship is
that of a great power and a client state
that must do as it’s told.”

carrot-and-stick approach to Israel
