The Olof Palme Memorial Fund for International Understanding and Common Security (of Sweden) has awarded its annual prize to Hanan Ashrawi (report). Apparently Ashrawi's habit of telling baldfaced lies to the international media doesn't disturb the foundation, who are presumably see her as a Palestinian moderate despite her rejection of Israel's existence as a Jewish state.

In 1995, the Palme award was givento the Israeli group Peace Now together with Fatah Youth. Fatah now launches a lot of bombing and shooting attacks at Israeli civilians. I wonder what Fatah Youth is up to these days....
