Nobel Prize in Collaboration with Israel

""Taking the unusual step of actively campaigning for the award, Abbas has reportedly sent mediators to persuade the committee to award him the honor and seems to be circumventing the most direct (and much harder) route towards the prize -- creating peace. "" and ""According to the sources, Abbas has been using different mediators to convince the Norwegian Nobel Committee to grant him the prestigious award, whose past recipients include former Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat, US President Barack Obama, late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and President Shimon Peres."
