A7 Radio's "Walter's World" with Walter Bingham
Follow Israel Radio on
This interview with an influential Arab Member of Knesset exposes the real views behind the smiling faces. It is apparent, that there is an unbridgeable gap between our two positions. The Arab demands for the establishment of what can only be a dubious peace, would reduce Israel to an indefensible entity.
Also, comparing our actions with those of the Nazis is surely an impossible basis from which to negotiate. Also: How the post-war German Foreign Service is staffed by former high ranking Nazis to this day. And: An outsider’s view of the failure of Israel’s Tourism Industry to market our wonderful attractions in an interesting and most of all inviting pro-active way.
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.
