|"Thank You Intel. Now Boycott Israel "|
Israel is a leader in adult stem cell research in the treatment of the neurological disease ALS or Lou-Gehrig's Disease. Research is at the clinical trial stage. This is the disease that Stephen Hawking has.
The equipment that Hawking uses to communicate with the world has at its core, technology developed by Intel Israel.
To accept an invitation from the President of Israel to a scientific conference and then to publicly cancel and join a boycott is more than just boorish manners and ignorance.
There has to be some plane in time in some dimension of the multiverse where the miracle of human inquisitiveness tips for the urge for its own extinction. Surely the end of time's brief history. Hawking may have found it. He can keep it.
Zionist Conspiracy has a suggestion that should relieve Hawking of any pending moral dilemma now that he has used Israeli scientific knowledge to add his voice to the racist and morally repugnant BDS campaign. Harsh but fair.
I would like to propose that if Israeli researchers discover a cure for the disease, it should be refused to Stephen Hawking. After all, we would not want to compromise his strong moral stand on behalf of the "suffering Palestinians"! And boycott for the goose is also boycott for the gander. Let us not put Hawking into any uncomfortable ethical position now that he has decided to join the BDS terrorists and boycott Israel. So let us help him avoid compromising his principles and simply let him know in advance that he will be denied any cure for ALS that ever comes out of any Israeli institution or research.

The only logical conclusion that can be derived from Stephen Hawking’s decision to join the academic boycott of Israel, coupled with his enthusiastic visits to Iran and China, is that he actively endorses and supports the repression practiced by the Iranian mullahs and the Chinese party bosses. Why else would he single out the world’s only Jewish state for his academic boycott?
Prior to the cancelation of his academic talk in Israel, it might have been argued that his visits to Iran and China reflected not support for the regimes but rather a neutral approach to academics, or a refusal to participate in academic boycotts. No longer can this justification work. The only possible justification for distinguishing between Israel on the one hand and Iran and China on the other hand would be if Israel’s actions were worse than those of Iran and China. Only a knave or a fool would believe that to be so. Israel’s academies are among the most open, diverse and free in the world. Israeli universities have affirmative action programs for Palestinians and other minorities. Political dissenters receive tenure and thrive at Israeli universities.
