    1. Copenhagen, Denmark — A far-right Norwegian lawmaker said Wednesday that he has nominated President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in the Middle East.

    Christian Tybring-Gjedde, a member of the Norwegian Parliament for the far-right Progress Party, said Mr. Trump should be considered because of his work "for a peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel which opens up for possible peace in the Middle East."

    "No matter how Trump acts at home and what he says at press conferences, he has absolutely a chance at getting the Nobel Peace Prize," Tybring-Gjedde, told The Associated Press.....

    2. The Palestinian Authority has recalled its ambassador to the United Arab Emirates in protest over the country’s peace agreement with Israel – calling the deal a “betrayal” of its cause, including its claim to Jerusalem as the capital of a future state.

    “At the request of President Mahmud Abbas, the Palestinian foreign ministry has decided to immediately recall its ambassador to the United Arab Emirates,” Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki said in a statement sent to Agence France-Presse....

    3. Can Trump achieve peace in the Middle East with his peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel? Just ask the Palestinians and their government. The nomination of Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize is the greatest joke of the century. The Norwegian lawmaker might as well nominate Peter Navarro for the Nobel Prize for Economics. At least the "jump-through-the-roof" economist has written several books with his own hand, unlike his cult master with the help of a ghostwriter. :)

    Trump deserves the nomination. He negotiated 4 peace treaties, 4 of them historic.

    Called the Abraham accords Israel signed peace treaties with UAE and Bahrain. They are historic because in addition to recognizing Israel's right to exist they will now have normal diplomatic and economic relations.

    There are also improved relations between Israel and Qatar and a peace deal between Kosovo and Serbia.

    South Korean prime minister Moon Jae-in said Trump deserved the Nobel peace prize for promoting peace in Korea.

    If that was Obama who met Kim at the border and took 2 steps into North Korea leftists would have wept. They literally would have been crying!



    Perhaps people should be getting their news from sources other than CNN and BBC.

    ...they aren't peace treaties....they are just...mission statements for want of a better word...have you read them? I mean they're pretty meaningless, full of political drivel like the opening paragraph which is
    I think everyone would "recognise" that but it doesn't actually say they will undertake to make it so; to paraphrase Captain Piccard. It's just political rhetoric...political bullshit basically.
    we seek? If it was a treaty it would be a legally binding endeavour not some worthless rhetoric?
    more seeking... no doing?
    And in a cliff hangar of a conclusion....
    ...well holy bollocks batman....yeah.....falls flat on its arse!!??

    19 lines of rhetoric doth not a Treaty make. A treaty is a legally binding agreement to do or not do something; like a contract an agreement to do or abstain from doing certain acts with the intention of creating a legal relationship. The Abraham Accord is a bit of political bullshit to make 2 politicians and 2 dictators look good on paper.

    I won't bother with the North Korean stuff because its nonsense as we can see....Trump in North Korea was hilarious beyond words.

    The Serbia-Kosovo accord is a nice step in the right direction and I guess so far so good - its a good economic accord but not a treaty its based upon the aspiration of economic normalisation which if you follow Kantian theory of Cosmopolitanism is the first step to reducing the propensity towards conflict. Let's hope it continues.

    I mean I know its nice to think that the likes of Trump could get a Nobel but not in this universe...maybe there's one universe out there in the theoretical mulitverse where Trump actually has a viable brain cell, can function in a coherent fashion and does act in a rational manner and thus could be a practical candidate for a Nobel but....well...not here.
