July 4, 1976: Saturday night right after Shabbos our guest from Israel let us know about the miraculous event in Libya, the Entebbie raid which rescued 100 hostages. Today, Prime Minister Netanyahu is visiting to recall the incident and pay respects to his brother who died rescuing the hostages. There are many bumper stickers here in the United States that say Freedom is not Free. That’s for sure, so many have died both in Israel and in the United States fighting to keep democracy alive.
May we pray that the sacrifices made by these brave men and woman should not be in vain.On this day July 4th let us celebrate the great fortitude those people who helped to establish the nation of freedom and security.
