Won’t Be Missed
Contrary to the editorial, the presence of Stephen Hawking at an academic conference in Israel will not be missed, but he has shown his basic anti-Israel stance by this action. Scientists from the entire world will be there, with papers that indicate advances in all fields, including physics. Following the advice of Noam Chomsky and the “Palestinian academics,” of which there are few, he can stay at home listening to the findings of the Higgs boson, which he stated either did not exist or would never be found. He has only convinced many by his actions that he is past history as far as science is concerned.
