symbols" during the holiday
Oak Park City Attorney
Burton R. Shifman told the
city council this week that
"a Christmas tree is clearly
not a Christian symbol. The
menora is not a symbol of
the holidays." Oak Park
City Hall has annually dis-
played a Christmas tree in
the lobby, candles on the
roof and a large brass men-
ora outside. These items
were set up this week.
The ACLU is acting in
Hazel Park on behalf of a
resident who is protest-
ing against a nativity
scene displayed atop a
fountain at city hall.
Thee ACLU has also
threatened to sue Oak Park
because police used cameras
last summer during an inci-
dent in Shepherd Park. A
group of Nazis who entered
the park shortly before a
rally in support of Israel's
actions in Lebanon. were
stoned by protestors. The
ACLU is also protesting the
city's park rules.

heavy snows on the Shouf
mountain range of Lebanon
halted the ethnic war be-
tween Druze and Christians
But heavy exchanges of
firing between neighboring
villages were halted while
villagers of both sides
helped the other extricate
vehicles from heavy snow
drifts. Once the cars and
trucks were freed, the shoot-
ing started again.
Israel's Labor Party said
this week that Israeli troops
should be withdrawn from
the mountain region. It said
the IDF should not play
policeman between the
enemies in an area that has
nothing to do with Israeli
