People here posting about bring up "anti-semitism" don't get the point. I don't think Hawkin is. BUT what gets Jews in the diaspora and in Israel upset is the singling out of the Jewish State. That is the main issue. If Hawking boycotted events in China, or the US or repressive Arab states, his actions would gain more weight. But the constant singling out of the one Jewish state among all nations shows the motives of those behind such actions. I one is legitimate to question those motives.
