Arafat deserved it for sure. After all, he invented airplane hijacking. By the way, one of the members of the Nobel Committee was so disgusted by this award that he resigned his position. There are hundreds and hundreds of aid workers, of individuals who have worked for peace for decades...enduring incredible suffering, even torture. But nope...lets play spin the Nobel and give it to Mr. Hopenchange. Abominable is my attitude. The Nobel has been dramatically devalued in a flash.
