Organised for the Diplomatic community in Israel, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) held a high powered seminar to examine when criticism of Israel is legitimate and when it crosses the line and becomes Anti-Semitism cloaked in Anti-Israel language. Hear how neither former Israeli Ambassador to the UN Dan Gillerman, nor Nathan Sharansky pulled any punches when describing the irresponsible reactions of the international community and the world’s press and TV to any actions of Israel when legally reacting to aggression and defending its sovereignty and security. Also speaking was the Director of the ADL Abraham Foxman and members of their leadership, as well as other distinguished experts.  Among the audience were many members of the Diplomatic Corps including the Ambassador of the United States.

Walter Bingham was born in Germany. Just days before the outbreak of WWII, with the help of a Zionist youth movement he was selected for a place on the ‘Kindertransport’ to Great Britain. Walter saw front line action during the Normandy invasion of Europe and was awarded the Military Medal for ‘Bravery in the Field’. In England Walter also acted in films including several Harry Potter films. On the day of his Aliyah in August 2004 he transferred his programme ‘Walter’s World’ to Israel National Radio as a weekly Magazine programme and it has been running here regularly ever since. Walter is an accomplished public speaker and was a member of a visiting panel of lecturers at schools throughout the UK, where he spoke on events in the Third Reich. He has also spoken at schools in the USA and addressed audiences in Israel.
