Never Compromise With the Chief Terrorist

In 1976, terrorists hijacked an outbound flight from Tel Aviv and landed the plane in Entebbe, Uganda. At the time, the nation of Israel followed a strict policy of not negotiating with terrorists.

Armstrong to write two exhilarating articles about the lessons Christians can learn from the Entebbe mission. On today’s show, I review this fascinating history and contrast it with the spirit of today—negotiation, appeasement and surrender.
