Why Stephen Hawking made a mistake backing Israel boycott

May 9, 2013 Read more: The Washington Post 200
The University of Cambridge, Hawking's academic home for decades, initially said he was pulling out for health reasons - Hawking is almost completely paralyzed from Lou Gehrig's disease - but later said it was a decision Hawking made "based on advice from Palestinian academics that he should respect the boycott," the Associated Press reported .

Don't complain to me about any national, religious or ethnic slurs that bigots have directed toward you. And how does that justify your assumptions about me? I have done no such thing.

Thanks for proving me correct - despite spluttering out more untruths about me "lying," you couldn't prove a single thing using my own words.
As noted previously, you're simply an annoying nutball. You need to get help with your religious obsessions before you go crazy and blow up something or start shooting people.
rabbee: well the delusional, only see things the way they fantacize. and i don't believe, i am the one who needs the help. and i seriously doubt, your intelligece. could comprehend, what has been said for at least a few years.

and i might be an annoying nutball to you. but then that makes me, G-D'S annoying nutball to you in this second coming.

Wishfully predicting the down fall of a majority secular, top ranking scientific/technological based nation.

That's what pisses me off.

Honestly, you can call me "slimey limey" till the cows come home - it doesn't bother me.

My "type"? By that you can mean only one who dares to challenge your self-styled omniscience. You have accused me of anti-Israel, anti-Zionist, anti-American pronouncements when I have made nothing of the sort. You have accused me of being a "leftie", whatever on earth you mean by that. When I asked that you provide evidence of all that, you chose to ignore my request. I wonder why. And now you associate me with Benghazi, when I have not even alluded to it, much less mentioned it. And now I'm the flagship of a "type": my "type", a type that is mine. Lol. Give me a break, Curly. I withdraw my suggestion that you consider the possibility that your assumptions are not always accurate. Indeed I see know that you won't consider anything. Your "type"-- the self-appointed oracle who is, in fact, a wildly bigoted, uninformed, blindly self-righteous, bloviating ignoramus whose sense of self-importance is completely unjustified--never does.

So you post under different names? Lol. And you're how old? I guess it keeps a "man" of your intelligence from growing bored. And it matters not that you are inclined not to believe me about my experience. It changes nothing. I made the mistake of assuming that this thread would offer intelligent discussion based upon factual evidence, upon what really is going on in the Middle East. I see that it does not. With multiple screen identities, however, you can create all by yourself an entire panel discussion that promotes your stand on Israel and the rest ... and without the slightest hint of dissension or challenge to your wildly bigoted and opinionated take on the issues.. Have fun.

No you haven't. You certainly haven't tried to defend Hawking on any personal level, the majority of your posts on this thread just seem to attack Israel, Jews and Zionism. Where as the majority of my posts have, at the least, been on topic.
And when I make facetious remarks highlighting this, you expose your pathetic pedantry that would make chomsky himself, proud. Leftie.

Is that so?
Let's revisit a previous post of yours:
<quoted text>
Is that right? Is that why Jefferson sent his navy to crush the arab states?
It seems I know more about your own culture than you do. You're a disgrace to your own country.
Please don't take this phoney Maltomon too seriously, we know him all too well on this forum, especially for his blabbery.

Don't put me on the level of that idiot, that disgrace to the UK, lol.

I think I warned you that topix is not a place where you should expect polite civil debates, rofl! Trust me, you get ridiculous personal attacks on topix as well!

<quoted text>No, I am able bodied. Muslim cowards don't have the stones to take on someone that can actually fight back. That's why our Crusader armies and the Israelis have such an easy time slaughtering them like fish in a barrel.
LOL...not one of your "Crusaders" (insanity! But revealing) or Zionistas would die for their faith, while Muslims off the street routinely do so. Sad that your high-tech and fake moral convictions can't defeat "primitive" suicide-bombers, innit?

Maybe just back the hell off, leave them alone, drop support for Israel...get out of their faces and they'll do the same. Pretty normal human behavior to resist invaders, occupiers, and tyrants.

Well, I say maybe not, if Israel got wiped off the map tomorrow, you'd be dancing in the streets. Despite 20% of Israels population being arab.
The needs of the few..... right leftie.
The usual lies and strawman from a typical Rightie extremist. Go put your Nazi uniform on and prance about in front of the mirror, and leave the normal folks alone.

You Americans stayed out of all the fighting like the good little kid in the playground, while Israel and the big boys were pummelling the Arabs.

And the Muslims destroy themselves based on worthless and valueless means, but the muslim terrorists are just waste I suppose.
