German Entebbe

November 1977
National Review;11/11/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 44, p1285
The article examines the reaction of Western nations to West Germany's assaults against terrorist aircraft hijackers at Mogadishu, Somalia. The raid, which is now called "German Entebbe," represented a too-rare triumph in the war against an escalating terrorism, the number of successful hijackings has increased from three in 1975 to 15 so far in 1977, and each year the number of worldwide terrorist incidents climbs into the thousands. Those countries that play host to hijackers would think twice about their hospitality if they knew that they would be ostracized by the West, cut off from Western trade and technology.
