This movie is about the daring raid by Israel on the airport at Entebbe in Uganda during the time of Idi Amin, in order to rescue the hostages held there in order to gain the release of a few of those fighting for Palestine held in jails in Israel. The events are based on the true story of evens at that time, Israels' mission mainly succeeded in this case, with relatively few casualties, which did include the brother of present day Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu, who was a soldier who took part in the raid and lost his life unfortunately. In his honour we have added the national anthem of Israel in place of the mainly silence at the end of the movie where credits are shown after the conclusion of the movie action itself. In a discussion at high levels in the movie depicting an exchange between Israeli leadership members, the words are spoken that Israel has to be able to bring itself to negotiate with its neighbours (in good faith I submit) if there is to be co-existence on the planet and in the region after all, rather than to wait until there is acceptance of Israel through occupation of those who are its enemies - for the very reason they object to such an occupation in spirit and in principle as human beings citing conscience. Otherwise, Israel will become as a prison unto itself. says the leader of Israels regime depicted in the movie. Lets hope that never comes to be as predicted and that some truly just solution is found for the sake of the good people everywhere there and on the planet who want it to be so, in actual and ultimate fairness all around for human beings of good nature and spirit ultimately i might add.
