Skip to comments.Hawking Confirms He is Boycotting Israel
Posted on 05/08/2013 4:17:33 PM PDT by Eleutheria5
British physicist Stephen Hawking has confirmed that he will not be attending the Presidential Conference in Israel because he is joining an academic boycott of the Jewish state.
The University of Cambridge released a statement late Wednesday saying that Hawking had told the Israelis last week that he would not be attending "based on advice from Palestinian academics that he should respect the boycott."
Earlier, the university said that news reports saying Hawking was boycotting the conference were wrong, and that the noted physicist's decision to cancel his visit to Israel stemmed from health reasons alone.

Hawking should stick to physics. He knows nothing about the real world.
He’s probably afraid that he’ll discover that the universe does have a creator and it is God. All his work down the drain like the urine from his catheter bag.
Good..let the idiot boycott Israel..Israel would have to fumigate the country if he arrived anyway..one less a-hole to worry about
This. Hawkings now confirmed it, and so did the university. Screw ‘em.
Well, there’s your problem right there.
The world was never meant to be led by savants.
Yes he does. He knows that it exists, and is made of subatomic particles organized as atoms. Other than that, you’re right.
I fear Dr. Hawking's brain hurts.
I wonder what courses they teach. Revisionist History 101? How Jooos! Pass as Human workshop? And of course, Palestinian Studies and Middle Eastern Studies.
British? Strange, he doesnt have a british accent.
you can be disabled and still be an idiot. i really don’t care what his supposed iq is.
Amen and he IS an idiot.
Being trapped in the wheelchair must mean he has absolutely no idea what is going on in the outside world. The real world that is...not the math world.
He is boycotting Israel?
I am sure Bibi will stop in England on his way back from China to see what he can do to change Stephen’s mind.
Yeah. Netanyahu has nothing better to do.
Who do these people think they are? I am supposed to give a crap about what he thinks?
Now that’s funny.
Steven Hawking: Anti-Semite
And this man is supposed to be smart? But believes the Islamic Terrorist spin
I have thought for a while that Hawking is, if not an idiot-svant, just not very bright outside of physics. His writings about God are absolutely juvenile.
His original book said nobody could possibly use the mathmatics leading to the singularity, (or the big bang) to say that God didn’t exist. He said nobody could possibly know anything about the time before the singularity.
This year, he said differently, but just as a change of mind opinion/conclusion. He offered no new math to explain his change.
His mind is going downhill. 30 years ago, his mind was sharp. But he has lost it and is now just a celebrity. And this is not unique. Most insane math and physics leaps were done by people in their younger years. That process has to be even more pronounced with his unhealthy body.
He is now firmly in the province of punchlines and Sagan style science.
For someone who is supposedly so smart, he sure is stupid.
In boycotting Israel, Hawking is like that crippled dwarf, Josef Goebbels.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
He needs to make his mind up. Per previous thread , is he boycotting his computor. Does he commit to boycotting Israeli medical breakthroughs as they relate to his health.
In making a comment like that, you're not so different ...
Funny thing is, Israel is a secular State. Newton would have enough sense to figure that out that Islam is destructive, unlike that PC crippled idiot savant.
Hawking took the advice of an enemy of Israel as the basis of his decision.
One would have thought he’d have at least searched out the facts as he could find them and make a decision based on what he had come to know.
He might still have come down with his bigoted decision, but at least he could have claimed that he looked into it and that was where he came down.
Very feeble to say he took an Israeli enemy’s word and ran with that.
Well, he stands up for what he believes!
New International Version (NIV)
The Call of Abram
12 The Lord had said to Abram, Go from your country, your people and your fathers household to the land I will show you.
2 I will make you into a great nation,
and I will bless you;
I will make your name great,
and you will be a blessing.
3 I will bless those who bless you,
and whoever curses you I will curse;
and all peoples on earth
will be blessed through you.
Israel should rejoice, not bemoan his cancellation.
He’s only one of a majority of a national population that closely resembles members of the NAZI party in WWII Germany.
dumb a-hole “scientists” make stuff up and expect us to believe it. what a waste of taxpayers dollars.
Just ask Joe Biden!
It is obvious that all of his considerable IQ went to physics, with none left for common sense.
Shame, because I used to respect him.
See. I wish someone would tell my wife that I’m still funny.
If not for anti-Semitic creeps such as those two, we Jews would number about 200 million today -- not the paltry 13 million (?) we number today.
What principle or theory has Hawking actually “invented”?
Oh great! Another so called genius becomes an idiot when it comes to Israel... seems to be a problem with politics to me and has nothing to do with beliefs, right or wrong, just be on the right side of current politics.
Does this make Hawking an idiot servant?
In any case, I couldn't give a rat's fat patootie about whatever this man thinks about Israel. Let's remember the Brits and their historical compassion toward Jews. Starting with the York massacre in 1190, the denial of entry to "Palestine" for Jews fleeing the Holocaust, etc. etc.
Don’t forget the 1 day seminar, three ways to use your new pressure cooker.
Corinthians 2:6 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.
1Corinthians 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. As it is written: "He catches the wise in their craftiness";
There is no such thing.
The fruit of this man’s life is all I need to know about his theories.
