A7 Radio's "Walter's World" with Walter Bingham
Follow Israel Radio on
This is the first of the next 500 Walter’s World programmes. It features a report from two Israeli Muslim families whose sons and daughters are fighting with the IDF. You’ll hear why they feel that they owe it to the country do their duty like any other citizen, despite difficulties in their Muslim society. Hear how Suha was the first Muslim woman to wear the IDF uniform.
Also: Another graphic report from the front near the Kerem Shalom crossing into Gaza.
And: What Walter heard at the IDF field hospital at the Erez/Gaza crossing, that was specially erected to tread sick and wounded Arabs from Gaza.
I recommend this programme.
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.
