Hudson New York, October 1, 2010: Former Palestinian President, Yasser Arafat, who won the Nobel Peace prize, fooled all of the people all of the time. Mahmoud Zahar, a prominent Hamas leader, has just revealed that Yasser Arafat, when he failed to get what he wanted at the negotiating table, instructed Hamas to launch terror attacks in the heart of Israel. Hamas obviously took Arafat's orders seriously, waging an unprecedented campaign of suicide booming and terror attacks that killed and injured thousands of Jews and Arabs. Zahar made this revelation during a lecture at the Islamic University in Gaza City marking the 10th anniversary of the second intifada, which erupted in September 2000. It remains to be seen what the Noble Prize Committee has to say about the Hamas leader's confession. In addition, those who back then staunchly defended Arafat as a "peace partner" owe the victims of the terror attacks and their families an apology - Will Abbas, Too, Order Hamas to Carry Out Terror Strikes?

Iran med atomvåpen? Ingen stor sak, ifølge fredsprisvinner Jimmy Carter:

    Huffington Post, January 30, 2012: When it comes to the Middle East, the former president never ceases to amaze. In an interview published in Time, he was asked: "What do you think it means that Iran seems to have its first nuclear fuel rod?" His complete answer: "Well, of course, the religious leaders of Iran have sworn on their word of honor that they're not going to manufacture nuclear weapons. If they are lying, then I don't see that as a major catastrophe because they'll only have one or two military weapons. Israel probably has 300 or so" - Jimmy Carter Does It Again

What on Earth has happened to the Nobel Peace Prize, which once was easily the world’s most prestigious award? Consider that in 1953, Albert Schweitzer and Gen. George C. Marshall were honored on the same day (with Winston Churchill winning the prize for literature, incidentally). Then fast-forward four decades to the 1990s when it was won by Yasser Arafat and Rigoberta Menchu Tum, the Guatemalan who supported murderous Communist guerrillas and has been accused of fabricating parts of her autobiography.


Blessed are the peacemakers, but in an era where two of the most powerful bastions of political correctness are Scandinavia and leftist ex-politicians, you cannot expect the real peacemakers to be identified by Scandinavian leftist ex-politicians, who make up the majority of the ultimate decision-makers. Even back in 1945 they failed to award it to Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt, so what possible chance do they have of choosing sensibly today? Alfred Nobel should have stipulated that the prize be chosen by the first 100 people who appear in the Oslo telephone directory, sooner than the Nobel Committee, which is chosen by the (usually Labor Party-dominated) Norwegian parliament, the Storting.
