nobel peace prize
    #2010965 - 10/15/03 10:24 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

From: http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=st...m/iran_nobel_dc

Iranian Nobel Peace Prize Winner Shirin Ebadi called Wednesday for the immediate release of jailed dissidents in the Islamic Republic and insisted that human rights were not incompatible with Islam.

[ ...snip... ]

Ebadi's award was welcomed with muted enthusiasm by Khatami Tuesday. He said that while he was pleased an Iranian had won, the peace prize was not as important as the Nobel prizes for literature and science.

------------------------------------------------

Is this (the part I have in italics above) the view of Islam or of a dictator that doesn't want to give his people freedom?  Sure, science and literature are important, but who wouldn't give up everything for peace?  I don't understand... :frown:

The Nobel Peace Prize should be the most sought after award at this point in time.

There should even be sub categories to allow more than one prize award at a time; for example: in a group effort, each should have a piece of the pie reflecting his/her involvement in the overall process.

There should even be an award for the conglomeration and/or amalgamation of diverse groups concerning peace efforts:  This would reflect group co-operation.

But I don't understand how somebody could think peace isn't as important as literature or science. It is more important to have an atomic bomb than to figure out how to live together in harmony? It is more important to have something to read and think about than to recognize that everybody is my brother and sister? To me, that is just insane.

I agree also. Without a peaceful environment, discoveries within science and literature cannot be appreciated to their fullest.

Peace should include cohesion among people as well as harmony of people with their surrounding physical environment.

The Nobel Peace Prize is given away like herpies. Both Ariel Sharon and Arafat got one, even Kissenger got one for christs sake! G.W. Bush was nominated for one, as was his father.

Fuck the Nobel Peace Prize. If i was offered one, I would turn it down.
