This past week, we saw the mouthpiece of Imperialism, the Norwegian Nobel Committee award its ‘Peace Prize’ to the UN’s Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), before it’s even completed its work (if it ever will or can)! Almost exactly one year ago following the awarding of the Nobel ‘Peace Prize’ to the European Union for its participation in the invasion of Libya and the overthrow of a sovereign state, the eminent academic Francis A. Boyle wrote the following, a statement that applies equally to this year’s award:
The awarding of Noble peace prize to the European Union is a sick joke and a demented fraud. Norway is a member state of NATO. Most consequential EU Member States are also Member States of NATO, which functions as the de facto military arm of the EU. So the NATO Norwegian Nobel “Peace” Committee has awarded their “prize” to the NATO EU Member States for just recently waging a war of aggression against Libya in order to steal its oil and gas while exterminating about 50,000 Africans in the process. This is a case of European White Racist Colonial Imperialism carving-up Africa all over again–only this time with the Nobel Peace Prize Good-Housekeeping Seal of Approval.
Professor Francis A. Boyle is an international law expert and served as Legal Advisor to the Palestine Liberation Organization and Yasser Arafat on the 1988 Palestinian Declaration of Independence, as well as to the Palestinian Delegation to the Middle East Peace Negotiations from 1991 to 1993, where he drafted the Palestinian counter-offer to the now defunct Oslo Agreement. His books include “Palestine, Palestinians and International Law” (2003), and “ The Palestinian Right of Return under International Law” (2010).
Professor Francis A. Boyle has been qualified to make Nobel Peace Prize nominations since September of 1976 when he first began teaching International Law at Harvard University.
