Ahead of Friday's anniversary of the rescue of Israelis and other Jews from a hijacked Air France flight in Entebbe, Uganda, Bat-Galim Sha'er compared the unity displayed at Sunday night's Tel Aviv rally for her son Gil-Ad and two other abducted teens to the feelings experienced 38 years ago.
She said, "We are brothers and brothers are not silent until their small brother returns to them; they do not stop and are not silent." Mrs. Sha'er concluded. "Yesterday it was Entebbe, today the Gush Etzion bloc and the day after tomorrow Sderot or the Golan Heights. We are brothers and thin filaments of pain hold us tight so we do not fall."
