THE DETROIT' JEWISH NEWS

Idi Amin Claims He Was Wronged, Threatens Kenya

(Continued from Page 18)
understand that Israel is
determined not to submit
to blackmail and to over-
come its enemies.

\ _

Dr. Nahum Goldmann,
president of the World Jew-
ish Congress, who is pres-
ently in Israel warned that
Israel must be extremely
careful now because its ene-
mies might engage in acts of
reprisal. But he described
the rescue as "an historic
event in the glorious history
of Israel."
Rabbi Alexander Schin-
dler, chairman of the Con-
eerence of Presidents of
1ajor American Jewish
_ Jrganizations, in Israel on
Conference matters, de-
clared that the liberation of
the hijacked passengers,
coming on July 4, was of
symbolic significance for
Americans "who see Israel
as a sister democracy de-
voted to the prophetic ideals
of human dignity and social
justice that animates both
our nations."
Idi Amin Claims
Uganda Was Wronged

"You have wronged me, I
am counting now the bodies
of my soldiers," President
Idi Amin of Uganda told
Maariv correspondent Uri
Dann who reached him by
telephone Sunday at the
Presidential office in Kam-
pala.
Commenting on the res-
cue raid, Amin complained,
"Your Hercules planes flew
in and my soldiers did not
want to shoot them down,"
he told Dann.
Amin vigorously denied
that he had cooperated with
the hijackers. He claimed
that, on the contrary, he
had defended the Israeli
hostages. He said he had
left the Organization of Af-
rican Unity meeting in
Mauritius to help work for
their release without
bloodshed.
Amin insisted that the
hijackers were the only ones
holding the hostages and
that his soldiers remained
some 200 meters distant
from the building where
they were being held. He
said he had allowed the hi-
jacked Air France jet to
land at Entebbe last Mon-
day only because it was run-
ning out of fuel.

"We really took good
are of the hostages,"
min told Dann. "We
ve them everything —
food, toilet articles and so
on — and what do we get
in return — you kill my
people."
Amin claimed that his
`coops could have given
'Attie to the Israeli com-
Apt mandoes
but they did not.
He said he had control of
the situation and, after all
"it was only a small
thing."

Dann said he had surpris-
ingly little difficulty reach-
ing Amin by phone. He said
he spoke to only one official
in Kampala before Amin
himself came on the line. He
said the conversation lasted
a half hour, that Amin
sounded in tears some of the
time and his feeling was
that the Ugandan leader

had not really grasped what
happened.
Israeli officials vigorously
denied Amin's charges that
.Kenya had collaborated
with Israel in any way in
carrying out the rescue mis-
sion. Some foreign press
reports indicated that the
Kenyan capital of Nairobi
was swarming with Israeli
agents -during the week the
hostages were being held.
The Israeli rescue planes
landed briefly at Nairobi on

their way back to Israel.
That fact and the strained
relations between Kenya
and Uganda have lent some
credence to reports that the
Kenyans gave at least tacit
support for the rescue. The
Kenyan government, how-
ever, has flatly denied this.
Kenya does not have formal
diplomatic relations with
Israel.

Amin accused Kenya of
"collusion with the Zion-
ists" and threatened "to

retaliate in whatever way
possible to redress the ag-
gression." But in a state-
ment late Monday night,
he said Uganda does not
have the air power to at-
tack Kenya.

This may indicate that
the Israeli commandoes de-
stroyed more than the 6-10
Ugandan MIG fighters they
claimed after the raid.
Amin was known to have
had 48 MIG15s, 17s and 21s
prior to the attack.
