Rhonda Mosty, n of Wixom said, "I
think it's great, but I don't think it's
going to happen because of the way
people in this country are looking at
Israel. Unfortunately, people don't
look at the whole pic-
ture."
Emery Klein of
Southfield, a retired
businessman and local
political activist, says
he's "concerned about a
backlash of anti-
Semitism."

"I'm concerned that it Klein
may be harmful for the
Jewish community, but
if he is nominated, I will definitely,
support him," said Klein, who has

objectivity"
Sam Herman of Farmington Hills
agreed. "It's a very proud moment,

Jew can run for office without his or
her religion even being raised as a fac-

up the feelings of the community
toward Lieberman's candidacy by -
saying, "Run. Joey, run!" Li
