Panic in Obama Camp over Jewish Vote [incl. Rashid Khalidi]
by Thomas Lifson
In a clear sign of desperation, the Obama campaign has called a halt to all debates before Jewish groups with representatives of the Republican Jewish Coalition. The Jewish Journal reports:
The Jewish intellectual tradition is built upon the foundation of vigorous disputation as the path to the truth. It would appear that with so many awkward questions about Obama's friendship with Rashid Khalidi, his 20 years in Reverend Wright's church, and his many anti-Israel foreign policy advisors, the Obama campaign is unable to withstand sustained scrutiny.
The website Mere Rhetoric comments:
So far as we know, this ban does not affect the two debates in South Florida this week scheduled between American Thinker's Richard Baehr and Ira Foreman of the National Jewish Democratic Committee
