Its unfortuante that Britain"s anti semitic forces were able to get to Hawking. Logic says that an academic conference held in a country like Israel, that allows for the free exchange of ideas, would be the proper forum to offer constructive criticism of israeli policies. I am sure Mr. Hawking would be surprised to learn of the wide range of opinion in Israeli academic circles regarding Isareli government polcices that impact the Palestinians. Much of that opionion is quite critical of the government.. I would think Britan and Mr. Hawking would be more concerned for most of the several billion people who live in live in Arab/Islamic nations that have no civi rights, freedom of speach, or religon for that matter. Anti semitism is not logical..
