How Obama could actually accept this "prize" with any sense of honesty is totally beyond me. It speaks volumes about the man, his ambition, his need for accolades, whether deserved or not. If I were Obama, nothing in the world would have embarrassed me more than flying to Stockholm receive such an award. He has virtually NOTHING in his meager political history to show for. Worse, he is a danger to Israel and has a long, long track record (look it up) of associations with anti-Israeli/anti-Jew associates. Prediction: he will allow Iran to develop a nuclear arsenal and the consequences of that will be so horrendous that he will be vilified by historians. Caroline said it all and quite quickly. Within weeks of his election, everything he did was geared to undermining Israel's security. In 2009 he petitioned Congress to lift the U.S. law that forbid financial aid to terrorist groups, so that the PA could get funds despite Hamas operating as the de facto government of Gaza.
