Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke at a ceremony honoring his arrival in Entebbe, Uganda Monday afternoon, thanking Uganda's president for his personal invitation and expressed how Entebbe both effected Israel and himself personally.
"President Yoweri (Museveni), thank you for your kind hospitality and your gracious invitation and your extraordinary friendship.," Netanyahu said.
"I would like to say first, to my people back home, to the soldiers and commanders here with us today and those who participated in the courageous (Entebbe) mission 40 years today ... I am touched standing here in this place where IDF soldiers released our hostages in the heart of Africa, thousands of miles away from Israel. Entebbe is always with me," he added
