Netanyahu nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was nominated Tuesday for the Nobel Peace Prize, for the recent string of peace deals between Israel and moderate Arab states.
The nomination was submitted by Lord David Trimble, a former North Irish lawmaker who was instrumental in the negotiations which led to the Good Friday Agreement of 1998, which effectively ended the conflict between Protestants and Catholics in North Ireland.
Trimble is himself a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, receiving the prize in 1998.
Because Netanyahu has been nominated by a prize laureate, the prize committee is required to convene to consider the nomination. (INN / VFI News)
