    Are you serious? No other President of my country, the US, has treated Israel so poorly. Mr. Obama deserves nothing more than common respect as a head of state and that is all. Mr. Obama has turned on America and Israel – his only concern is for Middle Eastern Influence and that does not include Israel.

  2. This is travesty! It is time for Peres to retire, he is sinile

  3. I think it only fair that Obama, reciprocate and present Shimon Peres a "Peace prize " for bringing the Oslo Accords as a beacon of peace to Israel. Somehow there is a perverse similarity to these hypocritical and destructive gestures. When Obama aids Israel in the destruction of Iran's nuclear capability, genuine prizes will be in order and more important, Israel's survival with be insured. Jerome S Kaufman.

  4. When warmongers are receiving Nobel peace prizes, then it is no wonder that they are rewarding each other with other prizes.
