Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi both deserve prices. But what have they done for peace?
Pakistani child education activist Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian child rights campaigner, have jointly won the Nobel Peace Prize.
At the age of just 17, Malala is the youngest ever recipient of the prize. The teenager was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen in October 2012 for campaigning for girls’ education. She now lives in Birmingham in the UK.
Malala said she was “honoured” to receive the award, saying it made her feel “more powerful and courageous”.
She revealed she found out the news after being called out of her chemistry class at her school in Birmingham.
Both Malala Yousafzai and Kailash Satyarthi are social activist, and they deserve prices. But not the Nobel Price for peace.
Whet they should have been given, was “The Best Social work price”.
Alfred Nobel wanted this price to be given to “peace workers”.
With regard to the Peace Prize, the will stipulated that it was to be awarded to the person “who shall have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses”.
When giving the price to Malala and Kailash, Oslo again dishonor the will of Alfred Nobel. That this is done when NATO and the USA is calling for war, is yet another scandal.
Who is working for peace in the world today?
First of all, there will be no world peace, before the prince of peace returns, Jesus of Nazareth. Only by accepting Him as God and Savior, man can find peace with God.
But there are still good candidates among men, who have been ignored.
Like Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN). They could have got the price. After Islamists have burned down nine Churches in the district of Kaduna State, CAN has started talks with its Muslim counterpart, Jamatu’ul Nasir Islam. This price would have given a global focus on persecuted and martyred Christians in Nigeria and all over the world.
The Nobel price for peace, could have been given to:
“Peace in Kurdistan”
Since it was launched in October 1994, the Peace in Kurdistan Campaign has established itself as a vital and tireless campaigning organisation dedicated to advancing the rights of the Kurdish people and achieving a political resolution of the Kurdish question. The kurdish people is oppressed in Iran, Turkey, Syria and Iraq.
The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could have been given the price, for the innovation of the Iron dome. It saved the life of civilians in Israel, when Israel was attack by 3.000 rockets in July. Netanyahu has called for demilitarization of Gaza.
