    Here is the question that Ofer Aderet made in writing to Prof. Galtung, and his answer. Judge for yourselves: Aderet. Do you think it's a legitimate hypothesis to suggest that the Mossad is behind this terror attack? Galtung: 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. MAJOR MEDIA IMMEDIATELY AND LEGITIMATELY ASSUMED ISLAMIST ACTORS AND THAT HYPOTHESIS HAS SO FAR BEEN ELIMINATED (i STILL KEEP IT OPEN). THE POLICE PRESUMABLY DOES THE SAME AS A RESEARCHER: ELIMINATE ONE HYPOTHESIS AFTER THE OTHER. I CONSIDER MOSSAD HIGHLY UNLIKELY, BUT IT IS ILLEGITIMATE TO ELIMINATE IT AS AN HYPOTHESIS WITH NO EVIDENCE. This is what you call a 'leading question'. You will see how aderet distorted Galtung's remarks. It is like this the whole article, I can post all the questions if you want, the email was directed to me, I am assistant to Prof. Galtung. Where is the journalistic decency and propriety? This is malice, there must be laws in Israel against this sort of thing.
