(Community Matters) My friend Marc Stanley to Sheldon Adelson: drop your silly lawsuit — you are going to lose and you are not going to bully us or silence us because of your wealth. Marc is the president of the National Jewish Democratic Council
“Adelson told me personally that he is a Jewish Republican for only two issues: He believes Republicans are better for Israel and he believes Republicans will eliminate the estate tax. I do not believe the vast majority of American Jews will agree with his views, especially when they hear the true facts instead of a one-sided campaign.
So here is my suggestion for Adelson. Let’s put money aside and settle this on the strength of ideas.
Why don’t you and I agree to two debates? You decide the forum and structure of the first and I’ll decide the forum and structure of the second. We can debate Obama’s record on Israel and we can debate the estate tax. And we can debate the differences between Democrats and Republicans on choice, healthcare, education, separation of church and state, marriage equality, poverty, social security, social justice and any other tikkun olam issue you wish.” full story here
