Geldof likened to Begin and Kissinger

A Norwegian politician with nominating rights for the Nobel Peace Prize has suggested that Bob Geldof should get the award. If he does he will follow such peaceniks as Menachem Begin and Henry Kissinger. I'm not sure if even Geldof deserves that. I'm also not sure what he has done that could be described as conducive to peace.
Jan Simonsen was quoted as telling Norwegian news agency NTB that Geldof should be honoured for his efforts to bring attention to world poverty through rock music.
I thought he brought attention to rock music through world poverty.
