Israeli Politicians Call for Return of Obama’s Nobel Prize After Expose on Helping Hezbollah

The calls followed a highly detailed expose published this past Sunday (Dec. 17) by the Politico news outlet that revealed the Obama administration directly blocked law enforcement against the Hezbollah terrorist organization.

    “No one has ever been stripped of a Nobel Prize, because this is actually specifically forbidden by the organization which administers the Nobel Prizes. According to the Nobel Foundation, “no appeals may be made against the decision of a prize-awarding body with regard to the award of a prize,” and no prizes can be revoked after the fact, no matter how “controversial” they may seem.”

    Does it occur to them that he might have got it FOR helping Hezbolla?

    The Nobel PEACE prize is a back scratcher awarded by a bunch of incestuous scandinavian marxist academics to their leftist dreamboat du jour for the year.
    It is a faux bauble of zero heft with no relationship at all to the real Nobel Prizes awarded by their peers for real accomplishments by brilliant scientists, etc.

      Remember that he received his Nobel Prize before he even took office and before he had any chance to do anything to the USA.

      It’ll look nice hanging on the wall of his cell.

        And he’s an undesignated domestic Marxist terrorist.

        The money accompanying the wall hanging would also help pay Obama’s lawyers: “As of 2013, the prize was worth 10 million SEK (about US$1.5 million)” (Wikipedia)

      Israel always wins one or more of the Nobels for science and medicine.

    I think Obama should keep it!

    What better way of totally discrediting the Nobel Peace Prize forevermore than the cabal of left-wing awarders to consider Obama’s award to still retain any semblance of legitimacy? If they withdrew Obama’s award† it would show that they actually cared for the reputation of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, the five-member committee appointed by the Parliament of Norway, itself a hotbed of left wingers for a long time.

    Any time I want to discredit the status of the Nobel Peace Prize I use the example of Obama, and nobody yet has been able to solidly refute this example. A prize whose nomination had to be made for Obamas work in the first ten days after his inauguration. A Presidency marked by 8 years where not a day went be when the USA wasn’t involved in foreign war. A Presidency marked by 8 years where internal race relations and violence got worse, where black-on-white violence got far worse.

    † Edit: Reading Drunk by Noon ✓‘s comment it looks like they can’t withdraw it, but they could make statements that they had made a mistake in the award even if they couldn’t rescind the award.

      Yessir Arafat got one too, so if that didn’t already discredit the award then not much will.
      I also noticed that Hitler lobbied hard for one but didn’t get it.

      • Watchman

        I agree that Yasser “I didn’t die of AIDS – the Jews poisoned me” Arafat didn’t deserve his Nobel Peace Prize either, and indeed was personally responsible for the deaths of thousands in a war while claiming to be peaceful – at least in English – for his wars and intifadas against Jews and Israel.

        Because so many leftists believe that Yasser is still a paragon of virtue and peace he isn’t such as perfect an example as Obama for the utter uselessness of the award. It’s easier to see how non-peaceful Obama was in your own country, when you have him leading Hillary “We came, we saw, he died” Clinton’s approach to world politics

    can they nullify his presidency too ?? ..

  • LauraS

    Good for the Israelis! I doubt the socialists at the Nobel organization will have the decency to do anything about this, but it hits Obama where it hurts: his reputation and his legacy. I imagine he is seething over this. The thought makes me smile.

  • Hard Little Machine

    The most frequent recipient of the prize, historically has been the UN. It’s clearly a meaningless trinket

    • Observer

      Other than the money that goes with it.

  • Maggat

    Never mind the peace prize, turn o’bumbler over to the Israelis. Preferably in leg irons.
