Another anniversary

While much of our nation celebrates July 4th, there is a lesser known anniversary today being remembered on the other side of the world. This July 4th marks the 30th anniversary of the Israeli mission to rescue the hostages held at Entebbe. Good wiki round up here, and a very detailed IDF report on the raid here.

This anniversary should serve as a reminder to the captors of Cpl. Gilad Shalit of the lengths Israel will go to to get it's captured people back.
