Paralysed by a degenerative disease, controversial British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, who incited hatred against Israel, died on Wednesday at the age of 76.
In 2013, Stephen Hawking decided to boycott an Israeli conference to protest against the occupation of disputed territories, an occupation that is legal according to International Laws. What the scientist didn’t say was that if he could communicate, it was thanks to Israeli technology, and he didn’t want to boycott it.
His hypocrisy was immediately exposed, and he was ridiculed by observers who pointed out that the famous scientist was using Israeli technology in the computer equipment that allowed him to function.
Hawking, which had been suffering from a neuronal motor disease for 50 years, relied on a computer base system developed by the Israeli branch of Intel since 1997 to communicate.
Intel confirmed this in a press release. Justin Rattner, director of technology at Intel Israel, said in 2013:
“We have a long-standing relationship with Professor Hawking. We look forward to continuing to work closely with him to improve his personal communication system.”
What an irony! It was through an Israeli communication system that Professor Hawking was able to announce a boycott of Israeli science and Jewish scientists. Instead of China sending prisoners’ families a bill for the bullet used in the execution, Hawking was asking Israeli scientists to supply the technology to help him boycott them.
“Hawking’s decision to join the boycott of Israel is quite hypocritical for an individual who prides himself on his whole intellectual accomplishment. His whole computer-based communications system runs on a chip designed by Israel’s Intel team. I suggest if he truly wants to pull out of Israel he should also pull out his Intel Core i7 from his tablet,” said Nitsana Darshan-Leitner of Shurat HaDin.
But then he wouldn’t be able to tell people that he boycotts Israel.
