No Nobel Peace Prize For Irwin Cotler - Sign the Petition

Irwin Cotler Does Not Deserve Nomination For Nobel Peace Prize

https://twitter.com/dimitrilascaris/status/1115462712266579968

"Former Liberal Minister Irwin Cotler is an apologist for Israel's brutal apartheid regime. It is therefore an affront to those who are committed to peace that Cotler has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. 

Please join me in signing the petition."

Who cares about the nobel peace prize? 

nobel peace prize=white people trying to set the bar on morals 

Heres a fact I’ll repeat here again, Gandhi never won a peace prize!

Didn't Bush and Obama get them? I think you have start wars or something like that to get one.

No, neither Bush got the Prize. Carter was given it during Bush II's first term, I always thought as a rebuke to the latter's policies.

I believe the first US President to get it was Teddy Roosevelt, for negotiating the treaty that ended the Russo-Japanese War and, among other things, established Japanese hegemony over Korea, possibly in exchange for Japan's recognition of American perogatives in the Philipines(depending on how you regard Taft-Katsura). A rather checkered history there, though I suppose he did actually help end a war.

Bush didn't.  Obama did-mainly for NOT being Bush, which made the rest of the world falsely assume he'd pull the U.S. out of the Anti-Muslim Wars.  

The most infamous Nobel Peace Prize winner, of course, was this guy:                                                                            https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=T5vo7jLGOb8

"Menachem Z Rosensaft a New York lawyer who is active in Holocaust related issues dismissed Mr Kissinger as 'the quintessential court Jew.' And JJ Goldberg, a Forward columnist, wrote, 'No one has ever gone broke overstating Kissinger's coldbloodedness." - NYT- 2010.

"...Mr Cotler has been a lawyer for the right-wing coup leader Leopoldo Lopez and he's also spent his career defending Israeli human-rights crimes. He recently defended the shooting and killing of 62 protesters in the Gaza Strip, along with the shooting of thousands more." - Max Blumenthal. 2018

A propos of Cotler and his cause...

I think you misinterpreted my post NDPP?

Obviously, the Noble Peace Prize is a bourgeois institution in the pocket of the USA, that has been operating an openly ‘anti-Socialist’ policy since at least 1945.

Liu Xiao Bo has also said in an 88 interview that Hong Kong has a strong economy due to colonialism and China needed colonialism to. He also supported the 2003 invasion of Iraq and pretty much every other war the US fabricated.

Thanks for the info which I didn't know. Too bad. Good quote nonetheless.
