Netanyahu's trip to Africa marks the first time an Israeli Prime Minister has visited Sub-Sahara Africa since 1987 when Yitzak Shamir traveled to Togo, Cameroon, Liberia and the Ivory Coast. It also marks the 40th anniversary of Israel's breathtaking rescue of citizens hijacked by terrorists and held at Uganda's Entebbe International Airport on 4 July 1976.
Muslims should set aside their differences and focus on “the ideal of liberating Palestine,” Iranian president Hassan Rouhani said Friday at an event for al-Quds Day, an anti-Israel celebration held annually by Iran. Al-Quds is the Arabic and Farsi name for Jerusalem.
The day’s rallies, held across the country, were attended by tens of thousands and featured chants of “Death to Israel” and “Death to America.” Israeli and American flags were also burned, Reuters reported.
