Yes, the peace prize is a joke, unworthy of our consideration – and so is the EU. They have their own problems,and while we may wish them well with them, we should give them no quarter in ours.

The Palestinian Israel conflict has never been more than a tool of the broader Israel Arab conflict.

Let us ignore their vanities, their condemnations and their now meaningless prizes, and look to our own.
