The Norwegian Storting awards the Nobel peace prize while the Swedish institutions award all the other Nobel prizes. This is the origin for the outlandish award of a peace prize to Barack Obama in 2009. It is unfortunate that this Norwegian group no longer has the intelligence for issuing this honor than it had during Nobel’s time. Obama has never done a single thing to bring peace anywhere in the world but rather brought out increasing anger at home over his attempt to destroy America. He also has brought great disrespect to America by the way he has treated other nations attempting to make them think he is a great Islamic pacifist. The Nobel Peace Prize should be taken away from him and given to Malala Yusufzai who, although very young, has done more towards generating peace in the Arab world than anyone else in the present era.
