Support for Stephen Hawking’s Decision

Support for Stephen Hawking’s Decision

Sheizaf (rt.) at Partners’ Israel Symposium last Oct.

As a result of Stephen Hawking’s decision not to attend the President’s Conference in Israel there are those who claim this shows that the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement is winning. Most recently, the Boston Globe had an editorial basically in support of Hawking’s action, but more as an act of non-violent protest than a boycott action.

A couple of days ago, I posted Carlo Strenger’s open letter of complaint to Hawking, published in Ha’Aretz.  Here’s a well thought-out response to Strenger by Noam Sheizaf, a good piece. 

There’s also this in the same venue by Larry Derfner, who calls his article “A Zionist Defense of Hawking.”
