Even the Peace Prize Obama ‘won’ makes more sense than this one.
The French have their own way of doing things.
For example, they have their own Peace Prize awards… and their own ‘standards’ by which they award them.
This year’s winner includes an honest-to-goodness terrorist organization.
France granted a human rights prize to Al-Haq, a leader in the anti-Israel lawfare and boycott efforts with ties to the terrorist group the Popular Front to Liberate Palestine (PFLP), and Israeli NGO B’Tselem, which advocates for Palestinians’ human rights.
The two organizations are sharing one of five Human Rights Awards of the French Republic. France’s Justice Minister Nicole Belloubet will present the awards at a ceremony in Paris on December 10.
Al-Haq says it documents “violations of the individual and collective rights of Palestinians in the Occupied Palestinian Territories,” and brings that documentation before international bodies to hold Israel accountable.
The organization’s General Director Shawan Jabarin is known to have ties to the PFLP. Israel convicted Jabarin in 1985 of recruiting members for the terrorist organization, and has been denied exit visas by both Israel and Jordan. As recently as 2009, the Supreme Court found that evidence of Jabarin’s continued “involvement in the activity of terrorist entities is concrete and reliable.”
… “In an absurd inversion of democratic principles, France’s Justice Minister will personally present the award to Al-Haq, a leader in BDS and law-fare campaigns, whose director is linked to the PFLP terror group,” Steinberg added. “While Denmark, Holland and other European governments have belatedly recognized the reality behind these groups and halted funding, France is going in the opposite direction.”

Like certain Democrats that have an anti-Israel bent to them, they are avid supporters of the anti-Israel BDS protest movement.
Here’s a little more about the guy and his group, from a French website (auto-translated):
Recall that the PFLP, of which Shawan Jabarin is a member, is recognized as a terrorist organization by 30 countries. The PFLP is one of the worst Arab terrorist movements. He has the sad privilege of being the “pioneer” of contemporary international terrorism by his action on July 23, 1968, when one of his commandos hijacked an Israeli airline El-Al’s plane to Algeria. The “theoretician” of air terrorism was FPLP’s chief of special operations, Wadie Haddad.
Shawan Jabrin, the man honored by Macron, Édouard Philippe and the other miserable scraps of bidet composing the National Consultative Commission on Human Rights (CNCDH) is even banned from stay for security reasons by … Jordan!
It should also be remembered that the PFLP of which Shawan Jabarin is a member also hijacked an Air France (!) Plane in 1976 to Entebbe in Uganda (assisted by German terrorists of the ultra-left third-worldist and internationalist of the Revolutionäre Zellen ). !
Raising any red flags yet?
How about THIS one taken from an article on the English translation of their own Website?
4. The course of armed struggle taking the form of guerrilla warfare at first and developing in the direction of the protracted people’s liberation war which will ensure ultimate triumph over the enemy’s technological and military superiority.
That REALLY sounds like Peace-Prize material, right there, doesn’t it?
Then again, maybe we’re being unfair in our expectations of France’s choice of such an award.
Because Tiananmen Square was such a successful projection of State Power, right?
