Peace prize

The Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the European Union. See here. When news first leaked about this, I thought it was a spoof or some misdirection. So, now I know it is a reality, I’m unsure whether to laugh or cry or ponder. I think I’ll ponder; for example, what peace would there have been without NATO? Does responsibility for an economic crisis equate with responsibility for peace and stability? Please, someone out there, enlighten me.

Shabbat Shalom!
