Forfatterne av boken om Israel-lobbyen, John Mearsheimer og Stephen Walt, holder med få dagers mellomrom foredrag ved henholdsvis NUPI og NTNU. Man kan ikke unnlate å dra visse konklusjoner når disse to kontroversielle herrene dukker opp ved våre fremste akademiske institusjoner.
Det er ikke ille at de blir hørt, men Mearsheimer og Walts synspunkt er snart det eneste som blir hørt i Norge. Det gir grunn til bekymring.
Redaksjonen vil fortsette oppfordringen til «borgerjournalistikk»: det er velkomment hvis noen påtar seg å gå på foredragene og gi referater.
Først ut er Mearsheimer, kommende mandag.
