I'm not sure if this is the right forum ....

An Iraqi researcher living in Europe gave an interview on Al-Jazeera TV. The researcher, Samir 'Ubeid, said that the Nobel Peace Prize is racist.
He asked the question 'Why Has the Prize Been Awarded to 167 Jews and Only 4 Arabs... All Considered Traitors?' He claims that the Peace Prize is
Zionist propaganda that encourages Islamics to betray their heritage and culture.
Is he sour grapes because he hasn’t received it?
Is he right?
Why does he consider the four Islamics who won to be traitors?
Perhaps only four Arabs been awarded it because many Muslims in Islamic nations are being held back by radical governments and/or religious leaders
who don’t allow progress. Perhaps the reason so few Islamics have gotten the Prize isn’t because they are being discriminated against, but it is
because their culture and their politics are holding them back. There is enough oil money over there to fund a whole lotta’ research into areas
that a prize could be awarded. If only that money would be spent in those areas instead of on Wahabbi extremism, etc. etc.
But then again, does it matter who gets it and who doesn’t? After all, the Nobel Prize isn’t exactly what its reputation makes it out to be.
Terrorist murderer and bisexual pedophile-child-rapist Arafat was awarded the prize. Hitler was nominated. The flake Cindy Sheehan claims to have
been nominated. Jimmy Carter didn’t get the prize for his years of good works; but only got it years later when it was timed to embarrass George
Bush. It is really getting caught up in politics instead of being what it should be … a prize for those who better humanity.
