Fight Back News Service is circulating the following statement from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine commended world-famous British scientist Stephen Hawking for joining the academic boycott of Israel, refusing to attend a scientific conference in occupied Jerusalem in the presence of Israeli president Shimon Peres. The Front said that Hawking’s action is a model for the convergence of science, ethics, justice, morality and human values.

The PFLP extended its thank and appreciation to the courageous voices in the world of physics and mathematics, who have reached great heights of scientific progress and genius. The Front compared his position to that of the developer of the theory of relativity, Albert Einstein, who also rejected Zionism and immigration to Palestine.

The PFLP called upon the Palestinian people, academics, and universities to send their thanks and appreciation, and for other international scientists, academics and universities to emulate Hawking’s example, saluting all of the people around the world who stand for humanity, justice, and freedom for Palestine, rejecting the lies of the occupation and its leaders.
