1 What, me worry?  Mon, Apr 30, 2012 2:54:09pm
In an email exchange with Haaretz on Sunday, Galtung requested to clear up his claims. “When we know nothing about who is behind Breivik, including whether there is anybody at all, any hypothesis is legitimate; that is in the nature of research,” wrote Galtung.

“I consider the Mossad highly unlikely, but it is illegitimate to eliminate it as a hypothesis with no evidence,” continued Galtung.

Mr. Galtung, I consider you a raging anti-Semite, a nasty old bigot and a first class idiot.

I also think you're insane, delusional and should have been committed long ago. However, since I don't have any evidence to prove that, I must put it out there, because it would be illegitimate of me to eliminate it as a hypothesis.

Oh I see. A Jew has an influential position, OBVIOUSLY all the Jews gotta be gassed.

This makes so much sense.

PS will this stuff never end?

Past check time: Did he go to Camp Quisling? He's at that cute age when they can't hold in the secrets anymore.

I would tend to doubt that it will ever end. I certainly don't expect it to. If society proves me wrong, I will be delighted. Until that happens, I am long resigned to the idea that there are people, a lot of people, who have judged me and the rest of us on the basis of what we are, rather than who we are.

And I'm secular, do not observe the religion (nor any religion)...nor am I a communist, socialist, atheist, or liberal. But I accept that none of this matters to...an awful lot of people.

He's been saying this sort of shit for a long time. Basically he hates forcible action to defend against tyranny. If he got his way, Norway would simply surrender to Radical Islam in the name of 'peace'. He's scum and should be regarded with hostility and contempt.

Unfortunately the end result will be reactions like this:

So now the far-right will have "proof!" that "peace studies" are antisemitic by default. This of course is a logical fallacy.

Indeed, it is a logical fallacy. I'm sure there are many scholars of peace who are not, like Johan Galtung, vituperative anti-Semites. I look forward to hearing their opinions about his crap.

But you don't think there might be some negative effects from what he actually said? I mean, the wingnuts don't exactly need fuel on the fire to hate peace studies,. I think they just hate everything that ends in 'studies' on general principle. But I'd say this shithead has done his bit to damage the reputation of his field all by his own self.

Didn't you just use the same logical fallacy? You simply inverted Kerstein's statement. But you used the same technique.

The problem is the Galtung was so influential in setting up the whole genre of studies that his actions can be used fairly effectively to taint the whole. When the father of a field of study is a loon, the field of study may be legitimately questioned.
