Elizabeth Taylor, RIP
A 1977 report by the JTA unearthed in the aftermath of Elizabeth Taylor’s death reveals that the actress, “…offered herself as a hostage for the more than 100 Air France hijack victims held by terrorists at Entebbe Airport in Uganda during the tense days before the Israeli rescue raid.”
Benjamin Weinthal further reminds us that Taylor co-signed a telegram by prominent women addressed to the ex-Nazi and then U.N. Secretary General Kurt Waldheim protesting the morally obscene 1975 U.N. resolution equating Zionism with racism. She also cancelled a 1967 trip to the Soviet Union because of its virulent anti-Israel stance.
Many other activities in support of Israel by Elizabeth Taylor could be enumerated.
May G-d bless her soul.
