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
their trust in. A dealership
that'll work as hard for their
money as they did. Making sure
things are right — before, during
and atter 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.

Secret Israel-Morocco Link Told

(Copyright 1978, JTA, Inc.)

PARIS — The French-
Arab weekly, Jeune Af-
rique, recently revealed a
secret chapter of purported
close Israeli-Moroccan con-
tacts which included a visit
to Morocco by Premier Yit-
zhak Rabin and two similar
visits by Foreign Minister
Moshe Dayan, the most re-
cent of them last January
after Dayan met with the
Pope and while he was sup-
posed to pay a one-day pri-
vate visit to Sicily, accord-
ing to Jeune Afrique.
The paper, earlier this
month, also said that Pre-
mier Menahem Begin was
also scheduled to visit
Morocco and, like Rabin and
Dayan, meet with King
Hassan. Begin's visit to
Rabat was originally due to
take place in November,
immediately after his
scheduled official visit to
The weekly, with close
ties to the Moroccan regime,
said that these plans were
disrupted by Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat's
sudden trip to Jerusalem.
Begin cancelled his plan to
go to Britain and thus the
scheduled trip to Morocco
was shelved as well.
A few weeks later, the
contacts were renewed.
Now, strengthened by
Sadat's trip to Jerusalem,
Begin is demanding that
he be received openly
and officially, Jeune Af-

of Nazi and neo-Nazi prop-

Ambassador Hits
British Press

LONDON —Israel's Am-
bassador to Britain, Av-
raham Kidron, has assailed
the British press for being
"increasingly hysterical
and decreasingly informed"
about Israel and the Middle

rique said, to which the
Moroccan government
has replied: "We are pre-
pared to welcome you
secretly unless Israel
recognizes the Palesti-
nians' right to a home-
land of their own."
The paper described in
some detail the three visits
which did take place. The
first was by Rabin, who left
Paris for Morocco in October
1976 aboard a small Moroc-
can jet plane accompanied
by a prominent Moroccan
personality. Rabin spent
two days in Morocco visiting
Fez, Rabat, Tangier and
Casablanca. He met both
King Hassan and Moroccan
Prime Minister Ahmed
Osman speaking English
with both of them. Osman, a
former Moroccan ambas-
sador in Washington,
speaks English fluently.
Jeune Afrique said that
Rabin and Hassan did not
discuss the possibility of a
meeting between Rabin and
Sadat. But this subject was
to be brought up later dur-
ing Dayan's visits to
Morocco, the paper said.
During Rabin's visit, the
two sides elaborated on
their views on a Middle East
settlement. "There were no
practical political conse-
quences to be expected," the
paper said. For one year,
there were no more top level
Moroccan-Israeli contacts.
But several Moroccans vis-
ited Israel and an Israeli ag-
ricultural mission visited
The renewal of the top
level contacts started in
September 1977 when
Dayan, by then foreign
minister, mysteriously
"disappeared" in Brussels.
He was discreetly picked up
by a Moroccan plane and
brought to the Royal Palace
of Ifrane to meet the king.
The paper added that
Dayan politely brought
with him an autographed
copy of his latest book which
he presented to the king.
The second Dayan trip
to Morocco took place
last January while the
foreign minister was on
an official visit to Rome
during which he met the
Pope. This correspon-
dent was in Rome at the
time and suspected a
possible secret meeting
when Dayan again mys-
teriously disappeared for
one day. An Israeli
spokesman said instead
that he only paid a visit to
Sicily in compliance with
Italian protocol.
According to Jeune Af-
rique's story, it appears that
Dayan flew out of Rome,
aboard a Moroccan plane
and returned that same
evening. The flight takes
slightly more than an hour.
The weekly said that Dayan
had a "warm - and friendly
approach" compared to Ra-

bin's which - was cold and
taciturn. The paper said
Dayan discussed both the
possibility of a Sadat-Begin
meeting and Begin's own
scheduled visit to Rabat at
this meeting.
The weekly stressed
nevertheless, that the real
author of the Sadat-Begin
meeting in Jerusalem was
Romania's President
Nicolai Ceaucescu. It said
"Rabat helped set a better
climate between Israel and
Egypt and helped organize
the first preliminary meet-
ings and contacts. King
Hassan and hisaides did not
organize the Sadat-Begin
meeting itself."
The Moroccan king,
Jeune Afrique said, has
stubbornly pressed Israel to
recognize and negotiate
with the Palestinians as the
only way to settle the Mid-
dle East conflict. He also
tried hard, but in vain be-
cause of Dr. Nahum
Goldmann's refusal, to set
up a meeting between
Goldmann, president of the
World Jewish Congress and
PLO leader Yasir Arafat,
the weekly said.
The king also occa-
sionally used the Moroc-
can Jewish community to
further his country's
interests. This, Jeune Af-
rique reported, was
especially visible during
Morocco's quarrel with
Algeria over possession
of part of the Sahara Des-
ert in 1974. At the time of
the Moroccan march into
the Sahara, the vice
president of the Moroc-
can Jewish community,
Serge Berdugo, was re-
ceived by the king. He
told Hassan that Moroc-
can Jews could help ex-
plain their country's
position on this issue
In September, 1975 the
leaders of the Jewish com-
munity, Serge and Georges
Berdugo, Jacques Tolano,
Armand Amzalleg, Dr.
Benzaquen and Rabbi
Chalom Messes (now Chief
Rabbi of Jerusalem), met
the king. They said they
would send an official mis-
sion to the United States to
explain Morocco's position.
The king has tenaciously
followed the belief that
peace in the Middle East
will come through an im-
provement of relations be-
tween Arabs and Jews,
Jeune Afrique said. An
example of this took place a
couple of months ago when
this correspondent, to his
great surprise, received an
official invitation from the
Moroccan Ambassador in
Paris to attend the embas-
sy's official reception on
Moroccan national inde-
pendence day. Apparently,
it was part of a program
aiming at strengthening re-
lations between Arabs and
