Listened to tormod Jagland, chairman of the Nobel comittee this morning. The 2011 prize is to be announced next friday, and the way he expressed himself, pf course without divulging names, it struck me that it would be in line with mr Jaglands political makeup, and the fact that he was very active in Norwegian politics at the time of the Oslo Accord in 1993, as well as later. Its in his character to go for real political impact issues, and an election of Abbas/Fayyad would certainly qualify her.
