Stephen Hawking’s hypocrisy
Boycotting Israel, while chiding Britain and the U.S. for 'war crimes' but not boycotting them, shows that the renowned scientist has dual standards.
Stephen Hawking is not only a prominent scientist and researcher. He is also an intellectual involved in the public discourse in the United Kingdom. He called the war in Iraq, and the United Kingdom’s participation in it, “a war crime,” and as one who identifies with the British Labour Party’s left wing, he expressed his support, in principle, for his country’s unilateral nuclear disarmament.
