Natanyahu was here yesterday to commemorate 40 years after the rescue mission by Israeli commandos at the Entebbe Airport in which his bother Yonatan Netanyahu was killed.
DP’s Secretary General, http://daniellebinks.com/wp-includes/class-walker-comment.php Mathias Nsubuga told the media at the party headquarters at City House that the party was left confused as to whether the government of Uganda valued the lives of foreigner more that its own citizens.
“It seems now that we are siding with the foreign aggressor, completely unmindful of the lives of Ugandan servicemen lost during the raid,” Nsubuga noted.
President Yoweri Museveni yesterday while speaking at the commemoration function, praised the Israeli commandos for successfully conducting such brave mission. He said Israel was right while Uganda under President Iddi Amin was wrong.
“Amin was wrong to keep the hostages and the Israelis were right to use the use the incapacity of that army to rescue the innocent hostages.”
DP however, believes that the Israelis instead of being praised for invading Uganda’s territory should be tasked to compensate the lives of the Ugandans who died in the raid.
“The soldiers that were killed were executing their duty of guarding the country against foreign attacks; these should be compensated,” Nsubuga added.
