While it is fair to debate the merits of President Obama's selection for the Peace Prize, as an American I find it disgusting to read criticisms of him in an Israeli newspaper for "targeted killings", Ariel (misspelling intended) bombardment of civilians or lack of courage in the pursuit of peace. Any history of Israel over the past 15 years would be a treatise on those very subjects. One need only to look at the last Israeli to receive the award to guage Israel's respect for the Nobel Prize, or lack thereof. Oslo recognized PM Rabin with the Peace Prize, and he was assassinated at the hands of his own countrymen. While his assassin may have been condemned to prison, the segment of the Israeli population that shared the killer's venomous hatred and supported it have never, as far as I can tell, been similarly condemned. Rather, they receive government stipends. So don't preach to me about peace or the shortcomings you see in President Obama.
