May 11, 2013 — Thank you all for taking the time to express gratitude to Dr Hawkings for his courageous decision to boycott Israel. More than 900 people share your feelings. That's truly amazing. While Dr. Hawking is being mercilessly attacked for his decision, with Alan Dershowitz calling him an "ignoramus", I believe that our expression of thanks can only be positive.
The signatures are being sent to Dr. Hawking's PR person at Cambridge University. That's right, the same guy who "mistakenly" attributed his decision as a health issue, not a moral one. With any luck, we will not only thank one person for his courage, but encourage another person to support him.
