"Neo-Nazis." If one word
is capable of driving a
wedge between the Jewish
community and the
American Civil Liberties
Union, two groups which
share a longstanding,
mutual commitment to
many causes, then "neo
Nazis" is that term.
In Detroit, the ACLU's
support of the S.S. Action
Group's Constitutional
rights of free speech and
free assembly has rankled
area Jews, many of whom
are Holocaust survivors or
relatives of those who died
in Nazi concentration
camps during World War
II. And although he
realizes how unpleasant
the idea may seem, Michi-
gan ACLU Executive Di-
rector Howard Simon
suggests people learn to
stomach public demon-
strations by such groups.
"All minority groups in
this country," Simon says,

"benefit from strengthen-
ing the institutions that
protect our civil liberties.
It doesn't take a good deal
of imagination to see that
if you void the rights of the
neo-Nazis, then years
down the road, other
minority groups, includ-
ing the Jews, are going to
become vulnerable to such
actions."
The ACLU director was
both surprised and dis-
couraged this spring when
the Detroit City Council
rejected by a 7-2 margin a
request from the S.S. Ac-
tion Group to stage a rally
on Belle Isle April 22. The
small, but vocal neo-Nazi
faction's stated purpose for
the rally was to honor
Adolph Hitler on the 96th
anniversary of his birth.
Earlier plans calling for a
demonstration in front of
the City-County Building
downtown were scrapped
when the Detroit-Wayne
