Did Bob Dylan win the Nobel Prize in literature for this poem?

He wrote this after the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982, when Dylan--who admired Meir Kahane--supported Israeli war crimes and massacres.

PS Full disclosure: I have been a fan of Bob Dylan since I was a boy in Lebanon.  Subsequent to that, I learned about his Zionism, which was not a pleasant experience to me.
