Stephen Hawking joins academic boycott to the Apartheid & Genocide Regime in Palestine

Possibly the most famous scientist of our time, Stephen Hawking, has finally joined the academic boycott against the Zionist Regime. After consulting with peers from Palestine, he decided to suspend sine die his planned visit to the various territories in which the Apartheid & Genocide Regime has compartmented Palestine. 

Hawking has visited Israel four times in the past. Most recently, in 2006, he delivered public lectures at Israeli and Palestinian universities as the guest of the British embassy in Tel Aviv. At the time, he said he was "looking forward to coming out to Israel and the Palestinian territories and excited about meeting both Israeli and Palestinian scientists".
Since then, his attitude to Israel appears to have hardened. In 2009, Hawking denounced Israel's three-week attack on Gaza, telling Riz Khan on Al-Jazeera that Israel's response to rocket fire from Gaza was "plain out of proportion … The situation is like that of South Africa before 1990 and cannot continue."
