The prize is a joke. Hitler was nominated once, and Arafat actually won it once, as did Obummer.

Who really decides who will be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize?

In this case, more likely the sultan himself. In general, since Arafat was nominated, it seems the islamic world is more and more obtaining heavy influence on the nomination, which the Nobel Peace Prize Committee executes.
