If only the Nobel Peace Prize were as noble as the other Nobel Prizes!
Jeff Jacoby: The hole in selecting Nobel Peace Prize winners: "It will be a long time before the Norwegian committee lives down its worst decision -- the 1994 award to terrorist chieftain Yasser Arafat (with Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin) for signing the Oslo Accord in 1993. Had the committee been in less of a hurry, it would have come to realize what everyone now knows -- that Arafat's commitment to murder and warfare was undiminished.
The Swedes take their time with Nobel prizes. It's time the Norwegians learned to do likewise."
