For the half a million people around the globe who had signed petitions urging their country’s parliamentarians to nominate Malala Yousafzai for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize, Friday morning brought deep disappointment.
The possibility the Nobel Committee would overlook the Pakistani teenager and instead choose another worthy nominee was always there.
However, the fact the wise men of Oslo rewarded failure instead of Malala was particularly insulting to many.
American author Dr. Zuhdi Jasser summed it up best. He called the decision of the Nobel Committee to award the Nobel Peace Prize to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) a “cruel joke on the Syrian people.” Dr. Jasser is an American of Syrian ancestry and has been in the forefront of the Syrian opposition to the Assad regime.
