a guide to boycotting israel

May 9th, 2013, 2:39 pm

QuoteSince 1997, Hawking's computer-based system has been sponsored and provided by Intel. His latest computer is based on an Intel Core i7 Processor. The Core micro architecture was designed by Israel's Intel team that previously designed the Pentium M mobile processor.The first mobile processor that used the Israeli designed chip was code named "Merom." Merom is the Hebrew word for a higher plane of existence or a level of heaven, and was a name chosen by the team in Haifa, Israel.I hope that DaveAngel and Cuch are using AMD chips ?

They just didn'tAnd I'm sure they were manufactured somewhere other than Israel http://seattletimes.com/html/businesste ... 09.htmlAnd I dread to think what DaveAngel and Cuch think of this gem:QuoteAs the M line was originally designed in Israel, the first Pentium M was identified by the codename Banias, named after an ancient site in the Golan Heights.

Intel faces world boycott over links to Israeli war crimesQuote"Intel built its second largest international fabrication plant in Israel, on land stolen by Israel from Palestinians after express, written guarantees by Israel that it would protect the Palestinians, respect their property and respect international law. Israel, the most notorious violator of International law since the Third Reich, then violated its own agreement, stole the land, and later sold the stolen land to Intel.

IFO is a 200mm wafer facility whilst Fab 24 processes 300mm wafers using 65 nanometer and 90 nanometer process technologies.
