Russia Today 22 April 2016: Merkel received the International Four Freedoms Medal from the Netherlands-based Roosevelt Foundation on Thursday. The German Chancellor was honored for her “great moral leadership,” promoting the “four freedoms” famously articulated by then US President Franklin Roosevelt in 1941: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want and freedom from fear.
Opening borders to large numbers of refugees has arguably been the most momentous decision during Merkel’s 10 years in office, which sparked controversy and tension between Berlin and Germany’s federal states. Critics also questioned Merkel’s merits where freedom of speech was involved, reminding of her decision to allow the prosecution of a German comedian, Böhmermann, who wrote a crude poem about Turkish President Erdogan.

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has collected a clutch of international awards honoring his “global legacy” in dealing with the world’s problems. Despite being responsible for involving Britain into the 2003 Iraq war, which among other problems caused the deaths of thousands of civilian children, in 2014 the US arm of Save the Children recognized Blair for his role in “making poverty history.”
Comment: Blair knew that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction and here – and lied to the British in order to go to war. Furthermore, Blair introduced the “Responsibility/Right to Protect” (R2P) – the Basis for endless NATO/US war worldwide: Create a problem through a concocted lie (Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria) – and the right to protect the people s until the last of them is killed!
Blair said: “Maybe, now that we live in this interconnected world of Globalisation we have to acknowledge the need for a ‘Responsibility to Protect’ and realise that “the principle of non-interference must be qualified in important respects” (Tony Blair, Doctrine of the international community speech to the Economic Club Chicago, 22.4.1999).
Tony Blair to UN General Assembly 15 Sept. 2005: “For the first time at this Summit we are agreed that states do not have the right to do what they will within their own borders, but that we, in the name of humanity, have a common duty to protect people where their own governments will not”.
In 2009, Andrew Neather, Blair´s speech writer was quoted in relation to the Muslim mass immigration as saying in The Daily Mail 24 Oct. 2009: Ministers hoped to change the country radically and ‘rub the Right’s nose in diversity‘. But Mr Neather said senior Labour figures were reluctant to discuss the policy, fearing it would alienate its ‘core working-class vote’.
The US Secretary of State under presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, Henry Kissinger was among the most disputable award-winners ever. Kissinger received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973, despite his alleged involvement in a campaign of political repression in Latin America, known as Operation Condor, the US’s active support for the Pinochet coup in Chile in 1972, as well s US bombing campaigns in Cambodia. The choice of the Nobel Prize winner was widely mocked, with critics saying the award has “made political satire obsolete.”
Comment: Kissinger’s role in the Yom Kippur war in 1973 is largely unknown. Kissinger is not only a Knights of Malta Mason and a Bohemian Grove Cult participant.
He is also participating in every Bilderberg meeting. At the Saltsjöbaden Bilderberg conference in 1973, he as US Secretary of State was tasked with quadrupling the oil price (Andreas von Rétyi, Bilderberger, Kopp Verlag 2006). He told the Arabs one thing and Israelis the opposite and through his “shuttle diplomacy” he triggered this war. After that, oil prices quadrupled – and the Arabs were blamed for it – although Saudi Foreign Minister, Sheik Yamani, tried to prevent this strong price increase.
French President François Hollande came under fire from human rights groups after he awarded Mohammed bin Nayef, Saudi Arabia’s interior minister, with the Order of Légion d’Honneur, France’s highest civil honor, for “efforts in the fight against terrorism and extremism” last month. The decoration sparked ire among activists who slammed the Gulf state’s abysmal human rights track record and the prince’s personal complicity in the common Saudi practice of mass executions as interior minister.

The controversial Nobel Committee decision to bestow a peace award on US President Barack Obama in 2009 has even faced a formal investigation into the selection process after a subsequent public outcry and repeated complaints from prominent Norwegian peace researcher Fredrik Heffermehl.
“Do you see Obama as a promoter of abolishing the military as a tool of international affairs?” the scholar told AP in 2012, accusing the committee members of bias.
Comments: Obama is responsible for the illegal wars on Libya and Syria – and another war on Libya may be imminent
