Congressmen Nominate Compassionate Coptic Missionary for Nobel Peace Prize

For over 100 years the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded annually to the individual who has supposedly “done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.” Over the past century — and particularly during the past several decades — the prize has been overwhelmingly presented to individuals and groups who have embraced a globalist vision for “peace” — one that necessitates the stripping of personal liberties, national sovereignty, and economic stability.

 

For over 100 years the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded annually to the individual who has supposedly “done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.” Over the past century — and particularly during the past several decades — the prize has been overwhelmingly presented to individuals and groups who have embraced a globalist vision for “peace” — one that necessitates the stripping of personal liberties, national sovereignty, and economic stability.

Among the more notorious parties honored in the past few years for their efforts in the name of “peace” have been such international luminaries as Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, Kofi Annan, Yasser Arafat, Henry Kissinger, the entire United Nations organization — and, perhaps most gallingly for the average American, Barack Obama, who not only continued George W. Bush's wars but instigated one of his own in Libya.
 
For certain, over the years the prize has also honored a handful of individuals who have legitimately contributed to genuine peace through their humble, selfless, and often lonely campaigns against poverty, disease, and injustice. Included among those worthy recipients have been Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo (last year’s winner); Mother Teresa (1979); and Albert Schweitzer (1952).
