The Nobel Peace Prize, which apparently is now being awarded to whoever has done or may do the most to enslave the American people, has succeeded in uniting Islamic terrorists and Israelis:
“We congratulate him for this,” said Ahmed Yousef, deputy foreign minister of Hamas, the Islamist group that runs Gaza and remains isolated by the United States because of its refusal to recognize Israel. But “we believe he has been rewarded or judged based on good intentions towards peace but not on his achievement. It was too early to award him. He has not done that much yet.”
Danny Danon, a member of the Israeli Knesset from the ruling Likud Party who opposed U.S. efforts to freeze construction of Jewish settlements, also said Obama’s record is thin. “This is the first time the award is given for wishful thinking,” Danon said.
Robert Schultz confirms my now-confirmed view that the point of this is to give Obama’s prestige a boost so Americans will be more likely to accept his fast-and-furious attempts to strangle our liberties:
When told of Obama’s win Robert Schultz, 62, a retired civil servant and Vietnam veteran, asked: “For doing what?
“The guy hasn’t solved any conflict anywhere so how can he win the peace prize? But if we don’t reelect him the next go around we will all look like idiots because the world has anointed him,” said Schultz, who lives in a suburb of Dallas.
The Democratic National Committee says this:
“The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists—the Taliban and Hamas this morning—in criticizing the president for receiving the Nobel Peace prize,” DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse said.
Wow. So not only are you a racist if you oppose Obama’s attempts to destroy the economy and our liberty, you’re making common cause with terrorists. Let’s hope the terrorists never state that red, green and blue are the primary colors, because then we’d have to outlaw crayons and rainbows.
According to the Norwegian Nobel Committee:
[Obama’s] diplomacy is founded in the concept that those who are to lead the world must do so on the basis of values and attitudes that are shared by the majority of the world’s population.
What “value” has “the majority of the world’s population” ever agreed upon except the fact that the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain? And if “the world” agreed on the virtue of jumping lemming-like off cliffs, would that make it right? But perhaps a sentiment to which the world’s billions would give the nod once they were properly convened and canvassed.
