An interview with Yossi Katz about his book 'A Voice Called' Stories Of Jewish Heroism.
Also: The story of Walter's heroine, Hannah Szenes
Plus: What Israelis are during Passover. All about the lesser known Israel, life in the Negev, the desert areas.
Hear: The well known writer and commentator Caroline Glick as you never heard her - or have read about her before; her early years - and why she decided to put aside her pen and paper to enter politics in the New Right Party.
Walter Says: There are one or two conferences or symposia in Jerusalem almost every week. They discuss anything from medical matters to relations with Diaspora Jewry, politics and even climate change. Most are 'talking shops' without the means to change anything, except to make us aware of the problems surrounding those subjects which of course is helpful.
Hear: How Israel tears itself apart from the inside. Instead of Unity there is division. Personal ego and insults are the order of the day. Gone are the times when politicians worked on the basis of 'My country before me'. Now it's reversed. Demonstrated by the Knesset Member's pay rise, and Netanyahu's immunity application. All that, while according to the OECD we have the highest poverty numbers of all their members. Yet According to Jewish law, we must even feed our animals before ourselves.
Listen How: Some ten years ago, on his show, when Walter was still young and spirited, he lost his cool. His thoughts went wild. It's how you never heard him before. You will not want to miss this. BUT nothing has changed. Everything he said applies today. Israel's government seems beholden to the EU and foreign powers. We have not learned.
Hear How: The German Railways were a key element in Hitler’s systematic extermination of Millions. The leading German Rail historian explains their involvement and organisation during the Nazi era and the financial rewards for their business. I'll call you tomorrow.
