Only In Israel

And the Darwin award goes to...

Looks like the Darwin award isn't the only thing the ISM and Pancake Annie were nominated to. A Canadian MP nominated the group for the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE (you're reading it correctly). The original story was found via LGF, but I found the source.

Dear Committee Members,

As a member of the House of Commons of Canada, and as the International Human Rights advocate for the New Democratic Party of Canada, it is my pleasure to nominate the International Solidarity Movement (ISM) for the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize.


Hey Sven? You need to find other ways to "pleasure" yourself, cause this is just SICK.


The contribution of the ISM to advancing the cause of peace in the Middle East, to defending human rights, and to upholding international law is without parallel. This organization's selfless efforts to promote peace and protect the lives of innocent civilians in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict clearly merit international recognition.


Oh ofcourse. Nothing ever compares to standing in front of a tunnel smuggling whores, drugs and weapons and calling it a "human rights situation". Or the part where they his a member of the Islamic Jihad in their office, that sure as hell promoted peace, and protected the lives of innocent civilians.


Although this nomination is for the ISM as a whole, three young individuals merit particular recognition for the courage and resolve they displayed in their acts of non-violent civil disobedience in defence of peace and human rights in the Palestinian Occupied Territories.


Well gee, one might've thought that hiding jihad members in your offices isn't a "non-violent" action to take. Also, I'm still a bit unclear of how stopping the IDF from destroying a tunnel used for smuggling hookers is helping "peace and human rights".


These individuals are Brian Avery and Tom Hurndall, who miraculously survived sniper shots to the head by Israeli forces while they were defending Palestinian civilians from Israeli troops, and Rachel Corrie, who was crushed to death by an Israeli Defence Force bulldozer while attempting to prevent the demolition of the home of an innocent Palestinian family.


She died defending DRUG, WEAPON and HOOKER smuggling tunnel. What's so hard to get? Is it the drugs? The whores? Which one? Does he want me to break it into syllables so he can get it better? It wasn't even a house Pancake Annie stood in front, it was a bush hiding a tunnel.


A Nobel Peace Prize for the ISM would be a fitting testament to the fortitude and principle exemplified by the members of this organization and these three individuals in particular.

Thank you for accepting this nomination.

Sincerely yours,

Svend J Robinson, MP


Oh there's nothing like the principles of hating jews, condoning violence and disturbing the military in anti-terrorist actions.
But then again, as they gave Arafat the prize.. ISM should be candidates too.
Oh, and BTW. As a gesture in Pancake Annie's memory, the Israeli government introduced new traffic signs in the West Bank and Gaza: "Caution! Human Speed bumps ahead!".
