On this day in 1968: Israeli terrorism

On this day in 1968, the Israeli terrorist state bombed the entire fleet of civilian planes of Middle East Airlines.  I was 8 years old and we were spending the holidays in Cairo, and the AlAhram reporter, Zakariyyah Nil, called my father to inform him.  We returned through the airport but I don't recall what we saw upon arrival a few days later.  Lebanese contemporary history, nay Arab contemporary history, is littered with dastardly deeds of Israeli terrorism.
