To change the subject from Gaza, the IWs orchestrated a campaign against Mary Robinson, whom President Obama had nominated for a “medal of freedom.” The IWs’ campaign failed. Ms. Robinson got her medal and the focus remains on Gaza.

The starkest example is in Colombia, where paramilitaries are using chain saws to dismember peasant farmers who support the guerrillas.
