This week, Prime Minister Netanyahu is traveling to Entebbe, Uganda to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Israeli raid that freed the Israeli and Jewish hostages from the clutches of terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Revolutionary Cells organization based in West Germany who had the cooperation of the government of Uganda then led by Idi Amin. The German terrorists were named Wilfried Bose and Brigitte Kuhlmann. Both were members of the Revolutionary Cells organization. Bose had emerged from the West German New Left in Frankfurt/Main and was the co-founder of a leftist publishing firm, Roter Stern Verlag (Red Star Press.). Both were killed in the shootout with Israeli troops. For details about the Frankfurt/Main connection to the Entebbe hijacking and “selection” in Uganda see my recently published book, Undeclared Wars with Israel: East Germany and the West German Far Left, 1967-1989 (Cambridge University Press, 2016).
