    Don't worry. Zerobama will find him, invite him to the White House for a beer, and apologize to him.

    I'd forgotten that they hand out Nobel Prizes for literature. Wonder what the award criteria are? I'll have to look it up. What a moron.

    What's that supposed to mean? He was 17 when the war ended, it's not like he was a concentration camp guard or anything.

    Wait. You mean to tell me that when they gave Yassar Arafat (the father of worldwide terrorism) the Nobel Peace Prize, that maybe he didn't deserve it?

    Don't forget they nominated Tookie Williams for a NPP back in the day too.

    Israel is the greatest threat to stability in the region... I'm not sure what this "World Peace" thing is though...

    There is no single "Nobel committee."

    The Nobel Prizes in the sciences (Physics and Chemistry) are awarded by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences (each prize has its own committee, elected every year) and are entirely apolitical. The same is true of the prize in Medicine, but it is awarded by the Karolinska Institute (a medical school, naturally).

    The other two prizes (literature, "peace") are not awarded by scientific institutions. The Nobel Peace prize, oddly enough, isn't even awarded by a Swedish institution (the literature prize is awarded by the Royal Academy of Sweden while the Peace prize is awarded by the Norwegian Nobel Committee).

    Winning a Nobel Prize in the sciences or Medicine is still pretty much the highest honor a scientist can receive.

    Now days anyone who's a Lefty/Liberal/Socalist/or Communist can win a Nobel Prize just for farting.

    At 17 if he was in Germany he would have most likely been in the Hitler Youth.

    Saying that Israel is a threat to world peace, is the same as saying that people who own cars are the cause of auto theft.

    That's true... since it was basically compulsory. By the middle of the war the Hitler Youth had become a military reserve and all able-bodied teenagers were pretty much forced to join.

    He's right. Without Israel (and the US) the entire region would go to war, wipe each other out completely and the only thing left would be the oil workers. Then all we'd have to worry about is the ocassional fist fight.
