The first 110km of the 230km long fence along the Sinai border with Egypt have been built and found to be 100% effective.
The purpose is to prevent smuggling of weapons; smuggling of drugs; the infiltration of illegals, mainly from Africa;
the infiltration of terrorists and the trafficking of women for the sex trade. So far Egypt is co-operating.
Also: All about the world renowned 330 seat Nalagaat Theatre

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.
