and passed them along.
Rumors that counter-protesters
from Dearborn were expected brought
the pro-Israel organizers and about
two dozen others to the busy West
Bloomfield intersection 45 minutes
before the demonstration officially
began at 4:30 p.m. By 5 p.m., the pro-
Israel group of activists had swelled to
more than 250 people and continued
to grow.
Members of the West Bloomfield
Police Department kept a close eye on
the corner. Outside of a few folks who
drove by and expressed their opposition
with shouts or gestures, there were no
problems. Demonstrators were heart-

Standing With Israel
Pastor Bob Clinton, 82, and his wife,
Geri, arrived early, having driven about
100 miles from Nashville, Mich., a vil-

Jewish community in support of Israel.
Clinton, who described his beliefs as

will win because there are prophetic
verses that say Jerusalem will be at the
center of the world:'
Clinton says people don't know what
is really going on and he blames the
news media. "The problem we see is the
news media are slanted so people who
learn from them don't get the facts
Irving Ginsberg of Farmington Hills
says his government job, from which
he recently retired, prevented him
from going public with his support of
Israel. But on June 8, he arrived early
for the demonstration and waved
Israeli and American flags.
"I see the United Nations hasn't
done well by Israel and that the Obama
administration has been slow to act in
support of Israel against the terrorist
regimes in the Middle Ease,' Ginsberg
said. "I think it's important for people to
show support for the only democracy in
the Middle East; since Europe won't do
it, the United States has to:'
The crowd was made up of people
of all ages, with many families attend-

Lisa Lis of Farmington Hills attend-
ed with her teenaged son, Aviv. "The
facts and truth need to be heard:' she
insisted. "We need to share exactly
what happened and not let the events
be falsified."
