Israel has suffered the threats it has,for as long as it has, due to its own actions and behaviour. Israels problem are of its own making. Hasbara no longer works. Playing the victim no longer works. The World knows the truth of Israels nefarious beginnings when European jewish convert settlers arrived with the determination to remove ALL Arabs from Palestine. and they set about doing so with great zeal. We know about the Jewish Terrorist armies that as soon as the British Army withdrew they began forcing Arabs from their homes and bulldozed their buildings and seized their possessions and money. We have read the plans of Jabotinsky in his book Iron Wall and have read the encouragements of Theodor Herzl who told the Jews to encourage anti semitism because it brought them sympathy that they could use to manipulate people to their side. The World is wide awake to Israel. Stephen Hawking is not so stupid as to make statements or decisions without having thought them through and processed all documentation and weighed up the facts. He is a highly educated man. He makes an educated decision and has found Israel to be lacking like so many other people in the world. Instead of lecturing him...try seeing his stance as an opportunity to change Israels behaviour and path. Have you not lost enough support...Is everyone truly wrong? When do you motivate yourselves for self assessment?
