Ynetnews reports: Jaffar Amin, the son of Uganda despot Idi Amin (pictured), was only 10 years old when Israeli commandos stormed the old terminal in Entebbe, rescuing the passengers of a hijacked Air France flight brought by the Palestinian and German terrorists to the African country.

But he remembers the next morning and the reactions from his classmates well.

“We were in school, and I had just come out of the washroom, and one of the boys came and started asking me about my father’s titles,” Jaffar Amin recounts. “So I gave him the name ‘Idi Amin Dada,’ and he said, ‘which other names?’ And I said there were no other names. And then he started listing my father’s titles.”

These titles included “His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular.”

“And I said ‘Those are not names, those are titles,’” Jaffar continues. “And then he added the title ‘burekazi.’ This simply means ‘useless’ in Swahili.”
