Here are the lies being spread about Hawking’s decision ….
Dear friends,


Early yesterday, a story broke in The Guardian claiming that famed physicist and author Stephen Hawkings had withdrawn from his participation in Israel’s President’s Conference.


Whether or not his cancellation is due to political pressure, it has already been “celebrated” by anti-Israel activists as a victory for BDS.


While those who support BDS are in the minority, they are a vocal one. On The Guardian‘s web site, there is currently a poll asking users “ Is Stephen Hawking right to join the academic boycott of Israel?” Currently, about 2/3 of respondents answered yes, that heshould support an academic boycott of Israel.


I would like to ask that you, your community, and friends not just of Israel, but of open dialogue and democracy, make your voices heard. It may be “just a poll” on a website which has been far from objective in covering Israel, but it is an easy, and important way for our voices to be heard on this issue.


So far, the online reaction does not seem to reflect what I know to be a global consensus on the logic behind boycotting the only true democracy in the Middle East.


Again, I ask you to cast your vote by clicking below, and together our community can respond to the latest round of vitriol. 


Thank You,

    You see, the panic it created, and the wall of drivel it rises.

    Rest ashure, there is Nothing they say or write about that is true, nothing, and they distort and twist everything, and forces the comentarys to be engaged in slamming the drivel served, like the word Palesina, in maps before Christ was Born, and have for a very long time been Palestina, whether they are “arabs” or not, is highly irrelevant, its the invasion of sentral europena slavs(aka Khazars) into an area, witch they havent anything in comon with, other that the Zionistic fairy tales, dreamt forth by a person in the midd 1800, based on interpitations that is downright fals and wrong.
    The king James bibel, and the very Word Jew is a complet fabrication along with what ever they putt op with regarding anything with the word Israel on/about.

    The holw issue is a falsyfing of reality and history, upheld by a media witch have zero credibility, but is ever present, own by the very same forces that is leading this Capagne.

    And once again, its not about the f….. “jews” its about the rights and Justice for the Palestinians, the native people of that land and they know it, but comon people dont.

    Its a rude awakening, but the biggest obstacle is the present lunatics and war criminals in the garden of evil, Israel.
    Suported and armed by the sheif wacko him self, the Lord of piss and drones, ObamaLama the Childslayer.
    The sole solution to this issue rests on the hands of criminals and war mongrels, but the truth will provail, the only loose cannon on the deck is the lunatics in Tel Aviv.
    The world must start to realise this, we are been highjacked into wars by evil people, with various terms, but all is about Recoursess and Controll of others land.
    We have been in the WW3 for a decade now, wars everywhere.
    And all we are feed from the Media is a weird, materialsitic insane world.

    Wake up.
