An Israeli Arab legislator is seeking support among members of the E.U.’s Parliament to have the Nobel Prize Committee strip Foreign Minister Shimon Peres of his Nobel Peace Prize, according to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz. Mohammed Barakah said several E.U. legislators supported the idea because they believe Peres, as a member of the Sharon government, is engaging in war crimes against the Palestinian people.
