BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:00 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that he will not accept the Nobel Peace Prize if he was announced the winner of the award.

According to the Anadolu News Agency, Erdogan made the remarks after the Austrian writer, Peter Handke, was given the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize in Literature.

Erdogan’s reasoning has to do with the accusation that Handke denied the 1995 Bosnian Genocide.

The Turkish President said that “awarding such a killer amounts to complicity in oppression.”

Erdogan, himself, has been accused of genocide denial, as he has rejected claims that 1.5 million Armenians and more than one-million Assyrians and Greeks were killed by the Ottoman authorities in 1915.

It’s a shame there isn’t Nobel prize for the biggest brute, I’m sure Erdogan would be prime candidate…

Glad to learn that there is at least one thing in this world that the Dog himself knows for certain he will never deserve, and so no matter how tainted the title in question has become overtime, thanks to extensive politicizing.
