In a lecture at the University of Oslo, and in interviews in the Norwegian press and with Haaretz, Norwegian sociologist Johan Galtung made anti-Semitic remarks, including the outrageous claim that the Mossad was behind Anders Breivik's murderous Norwegian rampage last summer, and praise for the anti-Semitic primer, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. Galtung is known as the 'father of peace studies.' Among other statements, Galtung claimed that a possible connection exists between the terrorist responsible for the massacre of children in Norway last summer, and the Mossad. “The Jews control U.S. media, and divert for the sake of Israel,” wrote Galtung in an article published in Norway.

Galtung also recommended reading “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,” – one of the most popular anti-Semitic texts in the world. Professor Galtung, 82-years-old, is one of the founders of the discipline called “Peace Studies and Conflict Resolution,” as well as a founder of the international Peace Research Institute in Oslo. He is considered well-respected sociological researcher, has been awarded many prizes, and is the author of over a thousand articles and over a hundred books. Some of his work has also been translated into Hebrew.....(read the whole disgusting thing.)
