  1. While in HS in the US, my daughter was assigned a project to write a paper on a Jewish hero – the teacher had to approve the subject. My daughter submitted Yoni Netanyahu’s name for her subject and the teacher rejected it (politely and respectfully) on the grounds that however tragic it is – dying in a war does NOT make one a hero. She allowed my daughter to write the paper none-the-less and my daughter did so – speaking to the bravery and gallantry of Yoni – without once ever referring to Entebbe. Yoni was very much a hero – even if he had not been at Entebbe – may his memory be a blessing and inspiration to us all.

  2. Joel Fisher! Your daughter should change school. I would be wandering I what her teacher will say about Warsaw Ghetto fighters? Yoni acted as a hero in Entebbe saving lives of the innocents, and your daughter was not suppose to mention Entebbe? How pathetic!
