affairs establishment has
appeared at critical jun-
ctures in previous U.S.-Is-
raeli relations. In 1948,
some of the most respected
figures in the Jewish lead-
ership seemed to have been
persuaded to support posi-
tions against formation of
the state of Israel during
the almost successful cam-
paign waged by Truman Ad-
ministration Arabists to
abort the birth of the Jew-
ish state.
The State Department's
documentation of "Foreign
Relations of the United
States for 1948" published
late last autumn, revealed
officially incidents and as-
sessment of divisions
among Jews in the critical
weeks before the Jewish
state was proclaimed by Da-
vid Ben-Gurion on May 16,
In 1956, the Eisenhower
Administration threatened
to block Jewish contribu-
tions to Israel from the
United States if the Israelis
did not withdraw from the
Sinai where it had entered
with British and French
agreement. Similarly, for-
mer Undersecretary of
State George Ball recently
advocated putting a halt to
such contributions to bring
about Israel's withdrawal

I Don't Want to Sell You A Car,
I Want To Help You Buy One,

You work hard for your money.
So do I.
But I don't think that a low price
alone is enough to get you to
spend your money at Jerry
Glassman Olds, or any other
car dealership.
I believe people want to
buy their car from a
dealership they can put
thei•trust in. A dealership
that'll work as hard for their
money as they did. Making sure
things are right — before, during

and after the sale.
When you visit Glassman Olds,
we'll help you pick out a car that's
right for the kind of driving you do.

Then we'll quote you a fair price. A

price as low as any in town.
Maybe lower.
And, after the sale, you'll find
our smiles are just as wide,
our handshakes just as friendly
when you come in for a free
warranty check.

That's the way I run things at
Jerry Glassman Oldsmobile.

Come in and see for yourself.

from the administered terri-
Jewish leaders voiced op-
posing opinions on the mat-
ter during the week. Yitz-
hak Rabin told the Israeli
Cabinet Sunday that he took
a very serious view of the
potential erosion of Ameri-
can policy in the Middle
East, manifested more than
anything else by President
Carter's statements in fa-
vor of a Palestinian home-
However, Rabin said,
there was an important
point of understanding with
the U.S. on the nature, ,of
peace in the Mideast. He
said his government had
based its policy on read-
iness for negotiations to re-
duce the possibility of war,
building the country's
strength and winning over
American public opinion.
Israel Galili described re-
cent statements by the lead-
ers of Likud who will form
the next government as ill-
judged and warned that
they could accelerate the al-
ready disturbing process of
erosion in the U.S.
American Zionist leader
Jacques Torczyner charged
that the Carter Adminis-
tration was trying to split
American Jewry in its sup-
port of Israel. He spoke of
attempts to "brain wash"
certain American Jewish
leaders, of hints of econom-
ic pressure and efforts to
undermine the importance-
and standing of the Confer-
ence of Presidents of Major

American Jewish Organiza-
Torczyner, a past presi-
dent of the Zionist Organiza-
tion of America, told report-
ers that the U.S. and Israel
were in the midst of a "war
of nerves."
Torczyner said that cer-
tain American Jewish lead-
ers, whose names he would
not divulge, were invited to
the White House and others
had talks with Zbigniew
Brzezinski, chairman of the
National Security Council,
and were warned not to sup-
port an Israeli government
that followed extremist poli-
cies. He claimed that the
Carter Administration tried
to convince these Jewish
leaders that the Arabs were
now moderate and that
peace was within reach if
only the Israeli government
refrained from taking ex-
treme positions.
But the head of the World
Jewish Congress' governing
board decried the outbreak
of "jitters" within the Jew-
ish community.
In an address opening the
79th annual meeting of the
National Conference of Jew-
ish Communal Service; Phil-
ip M. Klutznick cautioned
against hasty judgement.
He urged that Middle East
developments be assessed
in terms of long-range po-

Klutznick proposed that

the American Jewish com-
munity might better view
Begin's victory as "the dem-
ocratic will" of the Israeli
electorate and not prejudge
the "motives and objectiv-

es" of a Begin-led govern-
Similarly, he added, con-
clusions drawn from Presi-
dent Carter's penchant for
"public debate" or even "a
slip of the tongue" tend to
ignore the political reali-
Every U.S. President, "in-
cluding this one, wants to
see a Middle East settle-
ment--what's so new about
that?" he asked. Klutznick,
a former U.S. Ambassador
at the United Nations,
stressed the need of the
Jewish community to inter-
pret Middle East events in
terms of the "in'
dependence of nations i,
world grown so small that
what affects one can affect
all, those we like and those
we dislike."
Mayor Teddy Kollek of Je-
rusalem said in Washington
last week that there is grow-
ing doubt in Israel regard-
ing U.S. intentions toward
the Middle East "but there
is determination you can't
push us around too much."
Kollek spoke in response
to questions from foreign
and American correspond-
ents at a luncheon hosted
by the Overseas Writers at
the Capital Hilton Hotel. He
said "There is very serious,
gnawing doubt about what
the American position is."
He emphasized, however,
that "so far there are no
hard facts, only opinion and
feelings, not facts, on the
oil question, the pressures
of Russia and the Third
World and how America
will stand up to them."

Moroccan King Foresees. Arab, Israel Accord

King Hassan of Morocco,
possibly the only genuinely
moderate Arab leader, envi-
sions an alliance between
the Arab world and the Jew-
ish world, including Israel,
that within 10 years after a
peace settlement, could con-
stitute "a world power of
the first order."
Such is the view of Nath-
an Andre Chouraqui, a 59-
year-old Algerian-born Jew-
ish writer and jurist who
holds French and Israeli
citizenship and lives in Is-
Chouraqui disclosed de-
tails of his talks with King
Hassan during a 10-day
visit to Morocco last March
in an interview published
Sunday in the Jerusalem
He said "The King saw
such an alliance as a bal-
ancing factor on the world
scene that could lead to
peace and progress." He
said Hassan regarded world
Jewry as an integral part
of a Semitic bloc based on
the Arabs' population and
oil resources and Jewish
technological, military and
financial abilities.
Chouraqui said he had re-

trained from reporting his
talks with the Arab mon-
arch until now because he
preferred that Hassan
make his views public first.
This the king has done at a
press conference with
French new media, Chou-
raqui said. And in the mean-
time, Hassanthe, the pro-
royalist independent party
in Morocco, won a landslide
victory in the Moroccan par-
liamentary elections last
Friday giving Hassan wider
public support than ever be-
Chouraqui said his con-
tact with Hassan came
about as a result of the
king's interest in a book he
had written, "Letter to an
Arab Friend," in which
Chouraqui proposed a Jorda-
nian-Palestinian-Israeli con-
federation with open bor-
ders and the creation of a
Middle East Common Mar-
Chouraqui said he was in-
vited to visit Morocco as
the king's guest and al-
though he entered the coun-
try on his French passport,
the king knew he was an Is-
raeli resident of Jerusalem.
"I was invited, received
and presented during my

trip as an Israeli," he told
the Post.
He said he met with Has-
san for 90 minutes on
March 8. The king inquired
about Yitzhak Rabin and
Shimon Peres and wanted
to know which of the two
was a "hawk." He also
showed interest in the
500,000 Jews of Moroccan
origin in Israel and ex-
pressed hope for the norma-
lization of relations between
Jews and Arabs and fear of
another Mideast war, Chou-
raqui reported.
He said the monarch told
him that, contrary to recent
reports, Morocco was not
urging Moroccan Jews to
leave Israel and return to
the land of their birth. On
the other hand, Hassan said
Morocco would welcome
visits by Moroccan Jews
and other Israelis.
