    How can one so crude and primitive have the audacity to name himself after such an intelligent and humanistic man of such great repute? How does an act carried out 22 years before the Lebanese conflict of 2006, in which a large number of women and children were killed, because Israel was unwilling to commit troops to the ground until too late in the conflict to enable effective targeting of Hizbollah, absolve Israel from guilt? Ironically, (this will be lost on you) Albert Einstein would have seen both perpetrators in the dock for their crimes. The Israelis who perpetrated the massacres in Lebanon and the Iranians, (if it was them) who facilitated the Buenos Aires atrocity. In case you are completely ignorant of the nature of the man whom you imitate and whose name you blacken. Einstein refused to meet with Menachem Begin when he visited New York in 1948. Excerpt from letter to the New York Times signed by A. Einstein, amongst others: "It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughout the world, if correctly informed as to Mr. Begins political record and perspectives, could add their names and support to the movement he represents." I doubt he would have been impressed with you either. http://www.physics.harvard.edu/~wilson/NYTimes1948.html

Boycott is the only way to stop the Israeli occupation
