Mideast Hijacking

July 07, 1985

Although the crimes committed by the terrorists the moment they hijacked the plane were many and unpardonable, one of them, the deth of our young soldier, in my opinion, was symbolic to those criminals.

What these fanatics were actually saying to the young soldier was: "You represent America, you repreent the American President, you represent the American government, American policies, American ideals, American democracy, the American people, YOU ARE AMERICA, and this is what we do to all that," and they brutally beat him until his ribs were cracked, and then killed him.

If we do not retaliate, our young soldier died in vain.
