Kaare Kristiansen Dies, Resigned from Nobel Prize Committee after Arafat Received Award

Kaare Kristiansen, 85, who in 1994 won the hearts of Israelis when he resigned from the Nobel Committee rather than be a party to awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to Yasser Arafat, has died.

Kristiansen explained that he in good conscience could not bestow a Nobel Prize on someone with a record of terrorism such as Arafat.

Kaare Kristiansen: a good man with a solid conscience and a G-d imbued morality. May he rest in peace.
