STEPHEN HAWKING, ALLEGEDLY, HAS DECIDED TO 'BOYCOTT ISRAEL' BECAUSE IT WENT BACK TO ITS VERY ANCIENT LANDS, LANDS IT CONQUERED AND RE-CONQUERED (JUST AS THE USA, BRITAIN, AND EVERY OTHER NATION ON EARTH CONQUERED THEIR LANDS) AFTER THE HOLOCAUST FAILED TO ERADICATE THEM FROM THE PLANET, TAKING A SMALL FRACTION OF THE ORIGINAL BALFOUR AGREEMENT LANDS OFFERED FOR THEIR RETURN.
APPARENTLY, IF ONE BELIEVES THAT HAWKING ACTUALLY COMMUNICATES, AND FROM A SOUND MIND AT THAT, ONE CAN ALSO ASSUME THAT HAWKING DOESN'T LIKE IT THAT THE NEWLY CREATED RACE THAT CALL THEMSELVES 'PALESTINIANS' HAVEN'T BEEN HANDED BACK THE REST OF ISRAEL'S REMAINING TINY PIECE OF ONCE DESOLATE, BARREN DESERT.
SINCE ISRAEL WON'T GO AWAY, HAWKING ISN'T GOING TO ISRAEL...OR SO WE'RE TOLD BY HIS HANDLERS.
WHY HAWKING, BEING AN ATHEIST, WOULD HAVE EVER WANTED TO GO TO A LAND LIKE ISRAEL, WHOSE ENTIRE MAKEUP IS GOD-CENTERED, EVEN ONE TIME IS BEYOND ME.
THAT ASIDE, TO EACH HIS/HER OWN, BE YE ATHEIST, PAGAN, CHRISTIAN, 'OTHER', OR A VISITING ALIEN FROM THE ANDROMEDA GALAXY WHO WORSHIPS, PERHAPS, LADIES' CORSETS, HERE'S THE STORY, AND A VERY AWESOME RESPONSE TO THE "BOYCOTT".
<<Stephen Hawking is joining the academic boycott of Israel by pulling out of the
annual conference hosted by Israeli president Shimon Peres in Jerusalem.
He says it is in protest of what he described as "Israel's treatment of
Hawking, 71, world-renowned theoretical physicist and Lucasian
Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, had accepted an
invitation to headline the fifth annual president's conference, Facing Tomorrow,
in June, which features major international personalities, attracts
thousands of participants and this year will celebrate Peres's 90th
Hawking had last visited Israel in 2006 at the invitation of the
British Embassy there. He gave lectures in both Israeli and Palestinian
After the 2009 Israeli attack on Gaza in 2009, Hawking condemned Israel publicly in strong terms.
Hawking has been known to take anti-war positions in the past.
In 2004, he joined an anti-Iraq war demonstration in London and
addressed the demonstrators, calling the US led invasion of Iraq a 'war
crime' and based on 'lies'.
HMMMM...WONDER WHY HE EVER VISITED ISRAEL THE FIRST TIME, GIVEN HIS DEEP CONVICTIONS, HIS EMPATHY FOR THOSE NEW PALESTINIANS?
WHY NOW, AFTER ISRAEL HAS BEEN HOME FOR OVER 65 YEARS?
I ALSO MUST WONDER WHY, WHEN EVERY NATION SURROUNDING ISRAEL WAS ATTACKING THE HELL OUT OF ISRAEL FROM 1948 UNTIL TODAY, HE HASN'T LODGED ONE COMPLAINT NOR BOYCOTT INTENTIONS FOR MAYBE ONE OF THOSE NATIONS?
DIDN'T ANYONE TELL HIM THERE WAS A NEW RACE CALLED 'PALESTINIANS' SINCE THE 1950s BEFORE NOW? HE COULDN'T FIGURE THAT OUT?
AND HE SAID THE IRAQ WAR WAS BASED ON LIES AND ITS INVASION WAS A WAR CRIME?
CAN AMERICANS RESOLVE THE MYSTERY WHY HE LIVES IN BRITAIN, A NATION ACCUSED OF COMPLICITY OF WAR CRIMES WITH THE U.S., A NATION WITH A LONG HISTORY OF CONQUEST, BUT WON'T GO TO ISRAEL, AGAIN?
BLESS HIM...ON HE GOES...MAY HE LIVE FOREVER....
BUT ONE GENTLEMAN HAD A FEW WORDS FOR MR. HAWKING.
THEY'RE IN ENGLISH, SO SHOULDN'T PRESENT A PROBLEM TO THE ILLUSTRIOUS PHYSICIST TO READ...NOR TO ANYONE READING HERE.
<<Dear Professor Hawking,
I heard this morning on the radio that you decided to cancel
your attendance in Israel’s president conference, and joined the
academic boycott against Israel. You could not chose a more appropriate
date then May eighth, the day Nazi Germany surrendered in 1945 and the
day I joined the occupation army of Israel in 1985, to speak out loud
and clear against occupation and oppression.
I would like to express my appreciation for your brave protest. I
am sure that this is only the first step. There is a lot of occupation
and oppression in the world, implying that your clear and brave
anti-occupation voice will loudly be heard.
As you know, Britain is still occupying and oppressing Northern
Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Gibraltar, the Malvinas and many other
territories around the world. Therefore I expect you to join my call –
Sweden is still occupying Lapland. Thus, I expect you to call – Boycott Sweden.
Spain is still occupying and oppressing the Basques and Catalonia. No doubt that you are going to call – Boycott Spain.
Russia is still occupying many territories in Europe and in Asia. Surly you will call with me – Boycott Russia.
Italy is still occupying Lombardy and other counties. I am sure that I express your opinion in calling – Boycott Italy.
The United States is still occupying Indian territories and
denies the Indian right for self determination and independent state. In
addition, the United States is still occupying California, Texas, New
Mexico and other territories taken forcefully from Mexico in 1848. Thus,
I am sure that you will join me calling – Boycott the United States.
Canada is occupying Quebec. I can hear you calling: Vive le Québec Libre – Boycott Canada.
All white-man states in the Americas were established on the ruins of occupied Indian territories. So – Boycott America.
China is still occupying and oppressing Tibet. Let’s unite in our call – Boycott China.
Australia is still occupying and oppressing the Aboriginal
Australians and denies their right for self determination and
independent state. Thus – Boycott Australia.
Turkey is still occupying Alexandretta, Northern Cyprus and part of Kurdistan. Let us call together – Boycott Turkey.
Iran is still occupying and oppressing Waziristan, Baluchistan
and a portion of Kurdistan. Undoubtedly your conclusion is – Boycott
Iraq is still occupying the remainder of Kurdistan. Your famous consistency implies – Boycott Iraq.
Syria is occupying Jebel Druze and denies the Druze right for
self determination and independent state. Clearly, your next call is –
The Arabs are still occupying and oppressing the Assyrians and
other minorities in the Fertile Crescent and Northern Africa countries,
implying that you shall soon call – Boycott the Arabs.
This is only a partial list of occupations and oppressions
around the world. However, since the Israeli occupation is the oldest by
time (starting at the Big Bang), the biggest by space and above all –
the most atrocious, no doubt that you were quite correct by targeting
Israel first in your anti-occupation boycott campaign. But I am sure
that the horrible atrocious Israeli occupation will never dull your kind
moral sensitivity to smaller wrongdoings.
