Grooving the Entebbe Rescue

Download PDF for this date

A local company is putting out this week a new record called “Yonatan Victory March” to coincide with the Independence Day celebrations. Written by Ben Reuven, a young immigrant from England and sung in Hebrew and English by the Israeli group, the Black Diamonds, the record celebrates Israel’s rescue mission at Uganda’s Entebbe Airport last year. The company, Good Times Ltd., said that it has the permission of the parents of Yonatan Netanyahu, the Israeli major killed leading the Entebbe mission to use his name and picture. Part of the proceeds will go to the Israel Defense Force’s voluntary fund.
