Point/Counterpoint challenge to NJDC re: "No Place For Slander In Jewish Discourse"

To: NJDC, New York Jewish Week, Jerusalem Post
cc: online blogs, Republican Jewish Coalition

Gentlemen,

We read Ira Forman's "No Place For Slander In Jewish Discourse" (http://njdc.typepad.com/njdcs_blog/2008/02/njdc-executiv-1.html) at the National Jewish Democratic Council's blog and New York Jewish Week. The opinion piece also cites the Jerusalem Post, which we have copied on this letter.

The National Jewish Democratic Council wrote, "It is time all of us— organizations and individuals— take the responsibility for outing and yes, even shaming, the purveyors of sinat chinam [baseless hatred] in our community — to protect our values and to protect our community's genuine political interests."
