Hawking Rejects the Zionism of Einstein

When in 1948 President Harry Truman recognized the new Jewish State of Israel, Einstein declared it 'the fulfillment of our dream.'
The author with Stephen Hawking.

The author with Stephen Hawking.

Separately, in a letter to Maurice Solovine Einstein wrote, “I am not at all eager to go to America but am doing it only in the interests of the Zionists, who must beg for dollars to build educational institutions in Jerusalem and for whom I act as high priest and  decoy… I do what I can to help those in my tribe who are treated so badly everywhere.”

And when in 1948 President Harry Truman recognized the new Jewish State of Israel, Einstein declared it “the fulfillment of our dream.”

How unfortunate that a man as visionary as Stephen Hawking can peer so deeply into the Universe but it is so myopic as to fail to see the righteousness of Israel’s cause even as it stares him right in the face.

    Hawking dosen't believe in G_D! I understand why! Yet it is not his fault….

  3. Jordan Burr says:

    Israel continues to build settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. They continue to occupy the West Bank and East Jerusalem, and will not allow those occupied Palestinians to vote in Israeli elections. Hawking made the right choice.

  4. Seosamh Branagh says:

    It is imprudent perhaps to speculate too much (except Einstein did plenty and very fruitfully) but would any knowledgable person believe that Einstein would have a shred of regard for Israel 2013 (a nation that gave South Africa the nuclear bomb, a nation that alligned with the ugandan cannibal, Idi Amin until he turned on Israel, a nation that armed the Central American militaries including Rios Montt in Guametmala last friday convicted of crimes against humanity, genocide of 300000 native Ixil Mayans-a scale worse than the nazi genocide-a nation that in 2 blitzes on the Gaza concentration camp murdered 800 children?
    Everything in Einstein's brave life indicates he would be shoulder to shoulder with bravest Hawking.

  5. I agree with you in general on what you say and cannot dispute anything you have said in your very well written and as always sincere article.

    I don't think the failure of an Israeli-Palestinian peace can be blamed on Israel.but they are not entirely the fault of the Palestinians either.

    Israel has made major errors since 1967 in it's quest for peace.

    One of the biggest has been an inability to see beyond the present.

    No one has a crystal ball, but helping to establish Hamas was not a good idea. Neither was the unilateral withdrawal from Gaza.

    Similar mistakes were also made in Lebanon when Israel expected a Christian only political pact.

    The pressure from the politically correct against Israel will certainly not help to create more favorable conditions for peace.

    But our love for all of the Land of Israel should not delude us that we can keep the status quo forever, just like the Palestinians should not be deluded that they can change the status quo to get whatever they want without meeting Israel's basic needs.

  6. It's no surprise a Scandinavian-descandant fascist antisemitic scum is on this opinion. hope you'll be gangbanged in putrid 3rd world Chicago.
