Stephen Hawking Boycotting Company Working on his Cure

Israel’s BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics has invented a process that completely reverses ALS, but, sadly, Prof. Hawking, now shuns Israeli science.

Professor Stephen Hawking now supports the academic boycott of Israel, because of Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, the Guardian reported Wednesday, and to show it, he pulled out of the conference that will be hosted in June by Israeli president Shimon Peres in Jerusalem..

Hawking, 71, “the guy who invented time,” as the Big Bang Theory character Penny calls him, is a mega-famous theoretical physicist and the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University. He had initially accepted an invitation to speak at the fifth annual president’s “Facing Tomorrow” conference (possibly the last one, too, since the next president might not be up to it).

Hawking is in very poor health, according to the Guardian. He suffers from a motor neuron disease related to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS – also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease), a condition that has progressed over the years. He is almost entirely paralyzed and communicates through a speech generating device.

Last week, the author of “A Brief History of Time” wrote President Peres a brief letter ignoring a good 50% of History, saying he had changed his mind and won’t appear at the much touted conference.

A statement published with Hawking’s approval by the British Committee for the Universities of Palestine, said the reason for the insult to Peres and to Israel is “his independent decision to respect the boycott, based upon his knowledge of Palestine, and on the unanimous advice of his own academic contacts there.”

The Guardian reports that in the four weeks since Hawking’s participation in the Jerusalem event was announced, the great man has been “bombarded with messages from Britain and abroad as part of an intense campaign by boycott supporters trying to persuade him to change his mind.”

It worked. Finally Hawking broke down, and told friends he decided “to follow the advice of Palestinian colleagues who unanimously agreed that he should not attend.”

Here’s the catch: almost a year ago, The Jewish Press ran a story about Israeli scientific advancements in the use of stem cells to treat a variety of serious and debilitating illnesses, resulting in the miraculous recovery of the dean of the Mir yeshiva, Rabbi Refael Shmuelevich, from ALS.

A clinical trial of ALS patients conducted by Israel’s BrainStorm Cell Therapeutics shows their therapy, NurOwn, is safe and well-tolerated by patients, and not only capable of halting the progress of the illness, but can actually reverse the course of the disease, improving the breathing, muscle strength, and speech capabilities of sufferers with nerve damage in the brain and spine.

At the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, Rabbi Shmuelevitz was given just 2-4 years to live, until he succumbed to the most severe form of the neuromuscular diseases. Soon his speech became difficult to understand, and he was confined to a wheelchair.

But just one month after beginning an experimental treatment spearheaded at Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, Rabbi Shmuelevitz was back on his feet, teaching again at the 7,000-student yeshiva, as he has done for the last 30 years. His recovery was not only touted as a miracle and a joy for the students of the Mir yeshiva, but is being called the first ever recovery from ALS.

The Mayo Clinic is participating in clinical trials of the BrainStorm drug.

It’s possible that next time Professor Hawking comes to Jerusalem, it would be to receive treatment rather than to rebuke the local scientific community.

Except, as a Jewish Press manager commented online: Maybe Hawking just prefers the innovations and gifts the Palestinians have brought to the world… big bangs.

Hawking has visited Israel four times, most recently, in 2006, when he said he was “looking forward to coming out to Israel and the Palestinian territories and excited about meeting both Israeli and Palestinian scientists.”

But as of now, it’s down to just Palestinian scientists.

Both of them.

Israeli Presidential Conference Chairman Israel Maimon responded to Hawking’s announcement saying that his decision was unjustifiable and wrong:

“The academic boycott against Israel is in our view outrageous and improper, certainly for someone for whom the spirit of liberty lies at the basis of his human and academic mission. Israel is a democracy in which all individuals are free to express their opinions, whatever they may be. The imposition of a boycott is incompatible with open, democratic dialogue.”

    So now the respected scientist also suffers from blindness. How tragic how hatred can extend one's own suffering on many levels. We can pray that Prof. Hawking see the light of truth. Can we accept this as further proof that intelligence and learning provides no avenue to wisdom, Mr. Olmert?

    Too bad he hasn't been swallowed by one of the black holes he helped to describe…

  3. Brian Fink says:

    This is the nature of Jew-hatred, it's visceral so doesn't respond to logic. It trumps all else including common-sense and even self-interest as the Nazis diverted war material to the camps even as they were losing the war.

    While he is a brilliant physicist he is a stupid hate filled man. Let him stay home and continue to live his last days in misery. I'm sure his palestinean friends will take care of him.

  8. Ethan Perks says:

    According to "BBC Watch", this story is not true. Hawking pulled out for health reasons only. An anti Israel pro Palestinian NGO just assumed BDS was the reason.

    An article in the Guardian says: "Hawking, 71, the world-renowned theoretical physicist and former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge …. … This article was amended on 8 May 2013. The original described Hawking as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge." Will Hawking's renown surpass that of that other previous occupant of this position? That is what one could expect over 300 years after the position was instituted, but Hawking rejected the world view of that other physicist and staked his positions on a theory founded on self-contradicting non-Euclidean geometry. Another article asks, "What has Stephen Hawking done for science? Some of the physicist's greatest hits – from singularities in gravitational collapse to a quantum theory of gravity". I wonder whether he properly considered the question, What if Einstein was wrong about space curvature, but right about dice?

  18. Jenel Cohen says:

    Hawking could have handled this better, but it doesn't mean he's anti-semitic. He's expressing his support for suffering Palestinians. As much as I love Judaism and support Israel, I do not accept the current Zionist paradigm. Does that make me anti-semitic?

  19. Yes, it does. Or isn't denying Jews any right to their own homeland antisemitism?

  20. Anonymous says:

    Mostly he is just one Big heretic he doesn't even believe in G-d! Shows you how someone can be really smart in a particular field but end up being a total ignoramus on bigger and more important issues such as the reality that there is a G-d in this world! G-d save us from being influenced by such confused people- who by the way are all over University campuses. At the end of the day a 5 year old kid who believes in G-d is wiser.

  21. Sassan K. Darian says:

    I am sad and disappointed. I rather delude myself and say that his cognitive faculties are declining that he made this decision but that would just be to reduce my cognitive dissonance. He has already been to Israel four times before. Maybe because it was a government event and not academia. But still, it is the wrong thing to do and it highly saddens me and disappoints me. It makes me lose a bit of respect for Dr. Hawking. And I speak as an Iranian-American non-Israel non-Jew. :sigh. :(

  22. Marsha Roth says:

    In the past, I've always had tremendous admiration for Stephen Hawking. He is a brilliant man. Unfortunately, the REAL SCHMUCK part of him is exposed. Now, he is a brilliant ASS. Shame on him! He can't tell Propaganda from Truth! Now, he won't get to meet ALL the brilliant minds of the many Palestinian scientists, Oh! That's right! ALL two of them! along with the truly brilliant minds of the many Israeli scientists. He's the loser! Poor schmuck!

  23. Bebe Barbu says:

    It's quait pity that a such important man changed his mind in such a manner!

  24. It makes me laugh how many people believes that Steven Hawkins has suddenly found all the answers of our origins, how the world started, etc.. Just wait a decade or two, he will be debunk as he already is in the eyes of many peoples! Btw, it is "Not" smart on his part to "Boycott" the Ones (Israel) who are warmly open to cure You and help You.

    Stephen Hawkings is a greater man today than yesterday. The facts are clear on the ground. Israel’s policies against the Palestinians are brutal and criminal. The Occupation is a savage act.

    I love you Dr. Hawking. I am one of your biggest admirers. But you have lost some respect from those of us who value reason. You caved in to the same Palestinian Islamofascists who would love to have you executed for being an atheist. In this respect, you have become a "Useful Idiot" to the Islamofascist cause.

    He's pissed that the BCLI final trials are taking place at Mass General instead of one of the jihadi Brit hospitals and that he is ineligible. When the final tests are concluded, BCLI should remind him that he has sworn to boycott their cure.

    That said let's remember he is a theoretical scientist and has no concept of reality.

  31. How R they suffering? have you been in Israel and seen they so called poor Plesinians? or you just get the news from the bias and corrupt media?

  32. Nanette CohenRayman says:

    Jenel Cohen yes, it does…what is the zionist paradigm? by the way, what is your definition of a Zionist? I bet it is wrong. Palestinians suffer because their ARAB/MUSLIM brothers use them as pawns….why don't the ARABS help them? by the way, Israel supplies the "suffering" Palestinians (a made-up people, they are MOSLEMS…period)…with water, food, electricity, medicine, medical operations, shopping malls….what other country does that for people who stone Jews and kill them, who murdered the Fogel family and others and who shoot rockets even in a "cease fire." So, tell me Jenel, what is a Zionist and what is OUR paradigm?
    As for Hawking, Israel sure will survive..Who cares what this idiot thinks.

    Yes, it does make you a self hating Jew. How are the Arabs suiffering ?

  37. Hawkings has for a long time worshipped at the altar of American style Liberalism, so this shouldn't be a surprise. Anyone who blieves in people being responsible for thier own actions and upkeep, anyone who doesn't hate the U.S. and Israel and anyone who doesn't think that infanticide is a crime and a sin belongs that religion.

  38. Kaci Wolfe says:

    Crazy world we live in ain't it? Such a brilliant man, but cannot understand that they would have no problem executing him for his beliefs and his life's work.

  40. Dr. Robert Stadler. Stupid thumbs!

  41. Adam Kratt says:

    It is very disappointing that Hawking has chosen to join the legion of hate. Let us hope that he has the integrity to not merely publicly boycott Israel but also to boycott Israel personally such as not accept the life saving treatments developed by Israel or the life enhancing technologies developed by Israel.

  42. Mr. Hawking reminds me Mr. Carl Sagan, both of them wonderful in science, but both of them they lack knolwedge about G-d. One day Mr. Hawking will be standing before his creator, just like Mr Carl Sagan.

  43. My ignorance, sorry. I thought he was dead already.

  44. Kol Israel Org says:

    Cut electricity of his device. And send to him a list documented of all hate groups against Israel (as is typical of Nazism) that he is supporting with his decission.

  45. ..unjustifiable and wrong.

  46. It seems that he can't attend the conference because of a HEALTH PROBLEM.

  47. Larry, if Hawsking can't attend the conference is because of a HEALTH PROBLE. I don't know if you will know it.

  48. Russell Copeland says:

    Esther.. He and the University (one of the longest standing anti-semitic universities in England) later admitted it was to do with the boycott, not his health.

  49. Russell Copeland says:

    And then he and the university stated it WAS boycotting Israel.. They made that statement several hours after they denied it and claimed it was due to his health.

  50. I don't believe in any mass media. I have to see it with my own eyes. I am not going to judge him in advance. The same you say that don't jude Israel, I am not going to judge Hawskins. Pro Palestine are interesting in saying that he is Pro Palestine.

  51. Russell Copeland I don't believe in what any mass media says. I have to see it with my own eyes. I am not going to judge him in advance. The same you say that don't judge Israel, I am not going to judge Hawskins. Have you stopt to think if all of this is not manipulated.Pro Palestine are interesting in saying that he is Pro Palestine. Have you personally talked to him to know what he thinks about the situation? Universities can say what they want. And of course, It is for that reason that he went to Israel in 2006. In 2006 there was still conflict. Perhaps didn't antisemits exist?

  52. Russell Copeland And some people say, ok this man shouldn't use the israelian technology. So I say that Israelians shoudn't sell technology to the antisemits and propalestines.

  53. Russell Copeland It is clear that it wasn't Hawskins who says it. The University was suppose to have said it for him

    It's amazing how such a brilliant mind can be fooled by extreme left wing fanatics whose mentality is little better than the terrorists they support.A real shame.

  61. Yael Berman I don't defend what Israel haters say or do. But I ask you how people is so sure about what a person can think and don't refer to radicals who calls themselves pro peace, but to Hawkiing. I think that someone like him is too intelligent to ignore idiots.

  62. Graham Milne says:

    There is no proven relationship between intelligence and moral courage – and Professor Hawking has just proved it. I think I'll write a book about it – 'A Brief History of Slime'.

  63. I agree that his boycott is unnecessary, but this man has done so much for science and humanity. this article does nothing to address the actual issues by sidestepping them and focusing on his terrible illness.

    his boycott of israel may be off base, but not nearly as off base as this ridiculous article and many of the heartless comments below. some of you should be ashamed.

  64. John Winter says:

    Hawking is entitled to his opinions and to his feelings. If this Israeli company has created a cure for his disease, then they are equally entitled to withhold the cure from Hawking and let him live with his ALS.

  69. Niall Lynch says:

    What a sad, spiteful little article. It's very title is a lie, since there is no evidence Hawking is boycotting the company in question. Hawking made very clear that his decision to withdraw from the conference was in support of Palestinian universities. Not a boycott against Isaeli science or industry.

    And his withdrawal was not an "insult". It was very politely done, and Hawking has never in his attacked or reviled Israel.

    This just shows how nervous you guys are that overreact like this. Sad.

    (*“What is the final lesson here? Reward Hamas with a cease-fire and punish Fatah for an internationally supported initiative at the U.N.? Israel needs to question its endgame,” one European diplomat said in a news briefing. Under the briefing’s rules, the diplomat couldn’t be identified further. “If you didn’t know better, you’d say Israel was supporting Hamas.”)

    "I disagree with a smart man so the smart man is no longer smart. In fact, what a stupid man he was to be smart anyway."

    What about the high profile Israeli military personal who refuse to occupy Palestine out of human rights concerns? But will and have protected their country? Are they anti semites too?

    Would you classify these Jews as "anti-semites" as well?

    When you do not allow an alternative opinion to your own- by default, that is a dictatorship.

    Instead of talking about possible legitimate reasons for the world's most intelligent scientist to base his decisions you dismiss him and lump him into a hate-mongering category by default.

    If you disagree with me you are an anti-semite! Therefore who you are becomes exactly who I need you to be in order for me to have no qualms attacking you so that I feel safe and excused!

    Does denying Jews a right to live in the land they did not live in before they moved the people who were living there, away, mean criticizing the over 60% birth rate of Palestinian women who are forced to give birth in check points and the mothers and babies who have died from it? What about the pain and the robbery of a joyful memory?

    How about being critical of further Israel settlements on land that has been allotted to Palestinians- until Israel needs it of course. In Rosa Parks days it was called allowing African Americans to sit on seats until white people needed them- and you wonder!

    Because a boycott is synonymous with hate! Must make it pretty hard to have a different opinion than you.
