What it takes to win a nobel peace prize
According to the Norwegian Nobel Committee, Malala was honoured for her "heroic struggle" for education. This rather sounds like a political move and strategic calculation. Nobody can really tell what this girl has actually done to improve the situation of children. Furthermore, this move distracts attention from the illgal U.S. drone strikes in Northern Pakistan, the actual reason for the children's lack of education.
This is not ment to criticise the poor kid Malala, that is being exploited and hyped for doubtful reasons by her father, think-tanks and the media alike. But rather, this critique is addressed at those folks who are laureating and applauding the very same kind of girl which they are oppressing at the same time in their own countries. Muslim girls like Malala are barred from access to education and public service in many major European countries merely for wearing a headscarf. These prohibitions have even expressly been blessed by the "European Court of Human Rights" in the case Sahin v. Turkey . It is an irony that European countries honour a "hijabi" Muslim girl for her fight for education, while they themselves at the same time restrict muslim womens access to education. Headscarved women are forbidden to enter schools, universities and to pursue their profession in public service. They are regularily discriminated against by state institutions and forced to either give up their faith or their career. Muslim women who insist on not to compromise on their religion have been outlawed inter alia from the teaching profession, police service and many judicial services. Muslim women who wear the headscarves do not enjoy the support of their respective governments in countries like France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium or the Netherlands. But a muslim hijabi girl that criticises the alledged lack of girls access to education in countries like Pakistan is being honoured and praised. The headscarved has been turned into a highly political controversy all over Europe for reasons of social security, being labelled a danger to public order and security and even a threat to peace at schools . Apparently, however, it does not disqualify Malala from being awarded a "Peace" Prize. This is sheer hypocricy - or as the Native American Indian would say: White man speaks with a forked tongue.
What does it take nowadays to win the Nobel Peace Prize? Officially, recipients are awarded for "outstanding contributions in peace". The meaning of this claim makes only sense if one understands the term "peace" in the Orwellian sense as "War is Peace". The Nobel Peace Prize has been turned into a mockery by being awarded to Barack Obama, Henry Kissinger or recently even the European Union. Laureates further include Shimon Peres, President of Israel from 2007 to 2014, during whose term in office three major massacres have been committed against the Palestinian people (2009, 2012, 2014). Recipients further include Jimmy Carter, Menachem Begin or the infamous climate hysteric Al Gore.
A reasonable muslim would not want to be part of this "hall of shame".
