is burying enemy dead, a
military reporter wrote. The
burials conform to Interna-
tional Red Cross rules and
to Israel army procedures
regarding identifying bodies
and burying them.
The burial squads are made
up of army rabbinate mem-
bers who place markers over
the graves. The officer in
command, Major Mike, said
that burial of enemy dead in
itself raised the moral stand-
ards of Israel's army.

Animals Take Shelter

mates of the Jerusalem Bib-
lical Zoo, which suffered
heavy losses during the Six-
Day War shelling, are taking
this war in their stride, says
zoo director Aharon Shulov.
All cages now have built-

animals — particularly the
more intelligent ones like
chimpanzees — take to them
whenever there is the sound
of a siren or even when an
Israeli jet zooms overhead.
Even at the sound of build-
ing blasts nearby, the chimps
and orangutans dive into
their shelters and cover their
heads with their hands.



'Between You

CHRISTIAN MOODS: Christian response to the Yom
Kippur War has been forthcoming from leaders of various
church groups including Catholic, Evangelic, Methodist,
Baptist and Lutheran. A. Catholic Leadership Conference of
religious women cabled an appeal to Pope Paul VI to
condemn Egypt's and Syria's "criminal act of war" and to
come out with a statement acknowledging Israel's right to
exist securely within the family of nations.
The National Council of Churches—which is composed of
30 Protestant and Eastern Orthodox denominations — is
vague. But some Catholic bishops have issued statements
supporting Israel. A group of 14 clergymen in Des Moines,
said in a joint statement that in this critical hour for
Israel silence on the part of Christians would be a "moral
sin." The group included the Roman Catholic bishop, a
minister of the United Church of Christ and the president of
the Iowa Synod of the Lutheran Church of America. One
Episcopal priest said: "Christians betrayed Jews in both
America and Israel at the time of the Six Day War in 1967
by failing to offer them full and unequivocal support in that
moment of crisis. This failure must not be repeated by
Christians now."
With all this, the American Jewish Committee—which is
monitoring radio talk shows, newspaper editorials'and other
media—indicated that its findings are not always reassuring.
In Chicago there appears to be a concerted effort to have
talk shows monopolized by pro-Arab housewives. There is
also a strong pitch by Arab students on campuses. On talk
shows in New York, the AJCommittee noted "a substantial
amount of anti-Semitism, both traditional and the Black
Jewish leaders make no secret of the fact that they are
especially shocked — and outraged — by a radio interview
given by Senator Fulbriaht. The Senator alleged that
Israelis are "very rich, very strong and very political
astute", and he added that about 80 members of the Senate
favor Israel in each test because they had been "persuaded
that it is in their interest". His remarks are considered a
camouflaged shit. to American Jewry.

Enemy Casualties






Dear Sis:
Have you sat down and
talked this over quietly with
your mother and dad? Per-
haps if they were aware of
your feelings about your
brother's behavior, they
would do something about
it. Right now they probably
only see a childish quarrel
between you and your
brother, with you acting as
immature as he by hitting
him. By the way, he won't
give up this annoying be-
havior if he continues to get
a rise out of you.
