    Nobel Peace Prize Nominations

    Apparently this is serious....

    Jared Kushner nominated for Nobel peace prize | Jared Kushner | The Guardian

    Former White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and his deputy, Avi Berkowitz, have been nominated for the Nobel peace prize for their role in negotiating four normalisation deals between Israel and Arab nations known as the “Abraham Accords”.

    Kushner, who is Trump’s son-in-law, and Berkowitz, who was the Middle East envoy, were key figures in negotiating deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco.

    The two former deputies to then-President Donald Trump were nominated by American attorney Alan Dershowitz, who was eligible to do so in his capacity as a professor emeritus of Harvard Law School. Dershowitz defended Trump in his first impeachment trial last year and told the Wall Street Journal on 20 January that the Senate should dismiss the article of impeachment against the former president, as he was no longer in office.

    Thousands of people, from members of parliaments worldwide to former winners, are eligible to propose candidates. Nominations, which closed on Sunday, do not imply an endorsement from the Nobel committee.

    Among others nominated for the prize this year are Russian dissident Alexei Navalny, the World Health Organization and climate campaigner Greta Thunberg. All were backed by Norwegian lawmakers who have a track record of picking the winner.

      The BLM movement has also been nominated for the Peace Prize which is right up there with Obama's nomination as a sign of how whacky this award has become, a bit like our own honours list
