Obama Camp Fears Republican Jews

The American Thinker quoting the Jewish Journal:

Barack Obama's campaign has decided advisers and representatives of the Democratic nominee for president will no longer debate officials from the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC).

This prohibition led Wednesday to the canceling of a debate scheduled for Sunday at Valley Cities Jewish Community Center in Van Nuys organized by the Council of Israeli Community in Los Angeles. Larry Greenfield, California director of the RJC, said he still plans to show up. His counterpart, former Rep. Mel Levine, who is a Middle East adviser for Obama, will not participate in what would have been his fourth debate with Greenfield.
The American Thinker has this to say about that:
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 Obama Camp's rationale for canceling? The Republicans tell lies and no truth the Obama folk have is strong enough to counteract the lies.
