Malala Yousafzai denied Nobel Peace Prize, anti-chemical weapons group takes top honor

The teen schoolgirl from Pakistan may have been the favorite to win the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize announced in Oslo, Norway, but a chemical weapons watchdog won the top award.

The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, or OPCW, is the surprise winner of this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee made the award for the Hague-based group’s “extensive efforts to eliminate chemical weapons.”

Malala Yousafzai is the teen attacked on a bus by Taliban for her role as an advocate to educate girls in Pakistan. She was shot in the head and now continues her message.

Another snubbed candidate was Congolese gynecologist Denis Mukwege also is a favorite to win the Nobel prize. He founded a hospital that specializes in treatment of women who have been gang raped by rebels.

The Peace Prize committee said: “The conventions and the work of the OPCW have defined the use of chemical weapons as a taboo under international law. Recent events in Syria, where chemical weapons have again been put to use, have underlined the need to enhance the efforts to do away with such weapons.”

Noting the recent events in Syria, the group’s message appears to be significant in years to come.

Earlier this week, she prompted The Daily Show host Jon Stewart to joke that he would like to adopt her when she answered his question about what she would do if a Taliban gunman returned to attack her.

“I would tell him how important education is and that I would even want education for your children as well,” Malala told Stewart. “That’s what I want to tell you, now do what you want.”

    IN 1988 Ahmed Salman Rushdie RELEASED HIS NOVEL, “Satanic Verses.” ON 14 FEBRUARY 1989 Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini of Iran ISSUED A LEGAL JUDGEMENT [“fatwa”] AGAINST Mr. Rushdie FOR MISINTERPRETING Mahmed’s visions, AS WRITTEN IN Qur’an. SOME ISLAMIC PEOPLE CONSIDER – THEN, AND NOW – THE AYATOLLAH’S JUDGEMENT AS LICENSE TO KILL Mr. Rushdie; BUT, HE STILL SURVIVES.

    Diane Sawyer of ABC NEWS AND Margaret Warner of PBS INTERVIEWED Malala Yousafzai. IT SEEMS NO COINCIDENCE FEMALE JOURNALISTS INTERVIEWED Ms. Yousafzai SINCE IMPROVEMENT OF THE FEMALE CONDITION AROUND THE GLOBE IS A cause celebre FOR WESTERN FEMALES. Ms. Yousafzai WAS ASKED IF SHE WAS AFRAID OF BEING KILLED; THE TEENAGER SAID, “No.”

    MY POINT IS, TO HAVE AWARDED Nobel Peace Prize TO Ms. Yousafzai WOULD HAVE HAD THE POTENTIAL TO CREATE THE SAME CHAOS WHICH [STILL] SURROUNDS Mr. Rushdie. WE LIVE IN A WORLD IN WHICH WESTERNERS WANT TO STOP ISLAMIC ADVANCEMENTS IN CHEMICAL-/NUCLEAR-WEAPON CAPABILITIES. TO HAVE Ms. Yousafzai AS AN ICON WOULD UNANIMOUSLY ENCOURAGE THOSE WHO VALUE TRUE ISLAM.
