The Nobel What Prize?

Erik points out an important list in his comments on Mr. Obama winning the Nobel Peace Prize:

The Nobel Peace Prize has gone to Yassar Arafat, Hezbollah, Jimmy Carter, and too many other terrorists and terrorist sympathizers to count.

Erik concludes that the Nobel Committe has thrown its support behind “terrorists and terrorist sympathizers”, but I think the Committee’s problem is more subtle and sinister than that.

A quick examination of awardees from the last 20 years reveals that the last five recipients who had involvement with the Middle East peace process all took significant steps to weaken Israel. Is that an anti-Israel stench I smell blowing out of Oslo?
