The Nobel Prize Committee has turned the once prestigious Nobel designation into a purely liberal radical rubber stamp awarded to political whores whose faces appear on bumper stickers and T-Shirts in San Francisco with a demonstrated record of opposition to the “Great Satan” (you know the United States).
Past winners have included Jimmy Carter, Yassar Arafat, and Al Gore…really? These are the positive leaders in the world?
Carter, who was initially on the path to be the hardest working ex- President, fulfilled his destiny as an incompetent boob by making himself available to certify election results of insane dictators in third world sh*t holes. Meanwhile Arafat, an international terrorist (who was also voted most likely to be exhumed) was laughingly awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 1994. Gore picked up a Nobel on the way to his massage therapist (needed to have his ‘second chakra released") for continuing to market Michael Mann’s debunked hockey stick myth that proposed that global temperatures have increased as a result of man’s polluting activities (the main activity being man's mere existence on the planet). Even though the data Mann manufactured was filled with “collation errors, unjustified truncation or extrapolation of source data, obsolete data, incorrect principal component calculations, geographical mislocations and other serious defects" -- substantially affecting the temperature index.” Ironically Mann has repeatedly claimed to be a Nobel Prize Winner – also debunked. Fraud is fraud.
To add insult to injury, the Nobel Committee predicted that Obama’s mere presence in the Oval Office in 2009 deserved of such praise that he was awarded the Prize for Peace for “his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.” On that day, the last shred of credibility for the Nobel Prize award simply ceased to be.
Fast forward to 2012, while Nobel Prize winner Obama was busy on the campaign trail and playing golf, The Arab Spring turned into a Muslim Brotherhood- driven Arab bloodbath. Hamas has busied itself, spending the last 3 years lobbing 8,000 missiles into Israel.
A group of Nobel Peace Prize Winners and activists issued a letter calling for a military boycott of Israel, pretending to be outraged at Israel’s “aggressive actions”. Of course unless you are a deranged liberal, a nation defending itself from thousands of rockets would be the "victim" not the 'aggressor" in the conflict.
The letter claims the US, EU and other nations have sold weapons to Israel that killed 160 Palestinians. The letter opens with a quote from Nelson Mandela: "For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others."
"While the United States has been the largest sponsor of Israel, supplying billions of dollars of advanced military hardware every year, the role of the European Union must not go unnoticed, in particular its hefty subsidies to Israel's military complex through its research programs. Similarly, the growing military ties between Israel and the emerging economies of Brazil, India and South Korea are unconscionable given their nominal support for Palestinian freedom," it says.
The letter included Nobel peace laureates Mairead Maguire and Adolfo Pérez Esquivel; the film directors Mike Leigh and Ken Loach; the author Alice Walker; the US academic Noam Chomsky; Roger Waters of Pink Floyd; and Stéphane Hessel, a former French diplomat and Holocaust survivor who was co-author of the universal declaration of human rights.
