Visit with Walter another great Israeli success. 127 million Cu. meters of desalinated water per annum from the plant at Hadera enters the National water grid.  Israel’s total capacity is 1,330,000 Cu. Meters per day, representing 55% of our domestic use, or 80% including agriculture and Industry. Soon there will be no need to pump from the Sea of Galilee. Also: The last instalment of Walter’s progress of learning Hebrew with Ulpanor. And: How our so-called American and NATO friends pay only lip service to Israel’s security.

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.
