RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Democratic Senate candidate Ed Bernstein joined critics of the Jewish Defense League's burning of Nazi and Confederate flags in Reno, a demonstration against hatred that divided the local civil rights and Jewish community.
The militant Jewish group burned the flags in front of the federal courthouse where five self-described white supremacists pleaded guilty last week to charges in an attempted firebombing at a Reno synagogue.
Bernstein added his voice to concerns also raised by civil rights groups and the rabbi of Temple Emanu-El, which was slightly damaged in the attack in November.
