“Yoni’s death changed my life’s course”❞
Benjamin Netanyahu, whose brother Yoni was killed during the Entebbe operation, spoke on Tuesday (April 7, 2006) in a Knesset ceremony honoring the 30-year anniversary of the operation :
“The death of a brother, whose life was cut short in its prime, is a traumatic event by all accounts. It diverted the course of my life to its current direction. But the grief of a bereaved brother, as painful or heartrending as it may be, can not be compared to the great suffering borne by parents who are forced to bury their son. We can only hope that these parents, who sacrificed the greatest possible thing, can take comfort in the fact that the story of their son and his brave friends in Entebbe reverberates with the bravery of all of Israel’s fallen sons”
