Ha’aretz: Johan Galtung, so-called ‘father of peace studies,’ flirts with Mossad blood libel


 Here’s one of those stories that makes you say hmmm… maybe that crazy uncle warning about everyone really being an anti-Semite isn’t so crazy.

From Ha’aretz:

Johan Galtung, Norwegian sociologist nicknamed the “father of peace studies,” made anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli remarks while lecturing at the University of Oslo, in an article published afterward in the Norwegian press and in an interview with Haaretz that followed.

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 worldwide communication, and divert it in order to benefit of Israel,” wrote Galtung in an email exchange with Haaretz.

It’s hard to say it gets worse, but it certainly doesn’t get much better.
