Prominent Norwegian sociologist Johan Galtung has strongly criticized Israel in his recent interview, saying the Israeli-backed Jewish lobbies systematically control 96 percent of the world media. “The Jews control 96 percent of world media,” Galtung told the Norwegian magazine Humanist quoted by the Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv on Monday. He added that the directors of Walt Disney, Warner Brothers and Viacom are all Jews, as are directors in the big American television networks. “Is this accidental? If there is a Jewish boss it means Jewish control,” argued Galtung, who is called the "father of peace studies." The 82-year-old sociologist, who had earlier linked Israel's Mossad to Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik, who massacred 77 people last summer, said he believes the Mossad might have given Breivik his orders. He said that a European journalist, who had surmised that the Mossad was behind the massacre, “was vilified.” The July 2011 incident was Norway's worst massacre since World War II. AGB/JR/IS
