    This price pollutes the legacy of Confucious. Two names on their list could be merrited the rest only serves Chinese interests. Two are internationally recocnised for their achievements. One - Abbas have not achieved peace yet and is threatening disbanding the Palestine Authority. Premature to award anything to him. The rest bowed to Chinese pressure or are puppets. China's government should heed the advise of their own retired party leaders. Time to stop the oppressive behaviour and allow a free China. Alternative prizes wont hide the facts.
