article imagePresident Obama's Nobel Peace Prize creates skepticism

By Michelle J. Wong     Oct 9, 2009 in World
It is being debated that the Nobel Peace Price that has been awarded to President Barack Obama is a prize for a promise.
The decision to award U.S. President Barack Obama with the Nobel Peace Prize this Friday has created astonishment and skepticism.
While he has been praised by the President of Afghanistan, the Israeli minister of defense and even a senior official from Hamas, others like Hisham Qasim, Egyptian democracy and human rights activist were shocked Obama won the award.
It was argued that President Obama has not achieved anything. Such as his promise to close Guantanamo and that the “Arab-Israeli conflict looks like it's going to get very nasty.”
The Norwegian Nobel Committee said they chose President Obama for the price because of his "efforts to strengthen international diplomacy," his "vision of and work for a world without nuclear weapons" and for inspiring hope and creating "a new climate in international politics."
Many others question what Obama had accomplished to deserve the award.
