OSLO, Norway (AP) - The Nobel Peace Prize awards committee reported a record 173 nominations for 2004, with known candidates including President Bush, jailed Israeli nuclear technician Mordechai Vanunu and the pope.
Committee secretary Geir Lundestad said the preliminary list includes 129 individuals and 44 organizations, and is likely to be expanded when awards committee members forward their own nominations at their first meeting of the year on March 2.
Last year, there were 165 nominations, and the award went to lawyer and human rights activist Shirin Ebadi, the first Iranian and the first Muslim woman to win.
The committee accepts proposals postmarked by Feb. 1.
David M: What "everything" does the head of the Jesuits supposedly own and control. I don't know how many lies that you'll buy. I wish I knew, I could make a lot of money off a gullible pigeon like you.
Are they Kidding? How much of the Lies are we suppose to buy?The "Black Pope" and the Order of the Jesuits own and control Everything, including the "White Pope" and Bush. Want documentation? visit Vaticanassassins.org and reformation.org that will open your eyes! Please Wake Up America and Save our country! I hope this helps everybody broaden their understanding of what's really going on out there. God help us all. Thank you, David Matthes FSS4.us
The only ones I saw on the list was senators Luger and Nunn. The others whose names were given out, have a unique way of working towards peace. It would be interesting to see Bush and the Pope receive the Prize jointly since both took opposite positions on Iraq. It would give people something to bemuse for five seconds. It seems to me that Arafat received the Nobel peace Prize. If that was the case, then it should surprise anyone that anybody could get that Prize.
Keep trying guys (Sermonline). One of these days you'll get a shot of him drooling on himself. What a happy day that will be for you. Jealousy doesn't become anyone. (P.S. the word Pope is a title and should be capitalized)
