Palestinian terrorists hijacked an Air France jet and forced it to fly to Entebbe, Uganda

Standard

PALPalestinian terrorists hijacked an Air France jet and forced it to fly to Entebbe, Uganda – the first hints of an accommodation between the Amin regime and the Arab rebels. This put both Prime Minister Amin in a difficult position; Amin did not want outsiders in Uganda, fearing that they would cause trouble for his regime; but if he did not permit the Imperial Military to deal with this new problem, he would confirm the allegations, and bring down on his head the very trouble that he hoped to avoid.

He took the only way out that he could see, deliberately misunderstanding the instructions he received. He was supposed to prepare accommodations and briefings for specialist Israeli anti-terrorist troops who were to be on-hand to storm the aircraft if the terrorists made unreasonable demands; instead, he “misheard” this to say that he was to use the Imperial Troops stationed in Uganda (and nominally under his command) to storm the aircraft because the terrorist’s demands were unreasonable.

In theory, most of the hostages would have been rescued had the task been left to the Israeli experts; instead, the B-grade Ugandan military botched the operation appallingly, and all but 3 hostages were killed outright. Prime Minister Amin was suitably apologetic afterwards, blaming the poor state of communications equipment throughout Africa and requesting £735 million to upgrade telecommunications throughout the continent in a programme to be administered by Uganda on behalf of the Empire.

The audacity of this request in a fiscally-restrained climate was breathtaking, and initially it served its purpose of distracting the Imperial Bureaucracy from any investigation of the Entebbe massacre; the proposal won considerable support in a number of quarters, especially France and Germany, whose industries would almost certainly be subcontracted for the job. It fell to “The Whisperer” to raise the red flags and begin the downfall of Amin.

However, some people say that the above is a distorted version.Some thing that still baffles me – There was some sort of conspiracy to allow Idi Amin to live in Saudi Arabia in Exile in relative luxury.
1 Initially he escaped to Libya.
2 Gadaffi got tired of him and sent him to Saudi Arabia.
3 Saudi Arabia with connivance of Western powers allowed him to Live there on condition he makes no public pronouncements
4 Court of Human rights in Hague – in connivance with western powers never brought any human rights abuses charges against Idi Amin though he was responsible for killing 1/2 Million Ugandans.
5. Why did Saudi’s give him exile – It cannot be just because he was a Muslim. The Saudis provide him a safe harbor for more than 20 years and with a monthly stipend of about US$1,400, domestic servants, cooks, drivers, and cars.
