By Edwin Eytan (Paris) Yitzhak Shargil (Tel Aviv) May 21 (JTA)—Passengers on an El Al flight from Paris who had been targets of an Arab terrorist machinegun attack at Orley Airport yesterday afternoon, arrived at Ben Gurion Airport in the early hours this morning with eyewitness accounts of the shoot-out. They claimed that had it not been for the alertness and instant response of Israeli security guards, the Lod Airport massacre of May 30, 1972 would have been repeated. The three terrorists were killed in a hail of bullets near the El Al boarding gate, but not before one of them fatally shot a French policeman, Two other policemen and three passengers ,wait- ing to board an Iberia Airline flight to Malaga from an adjoining gate were wounded. The arriving El Al passengers credited- Israeli security guards with gunning down the terrorists. Reports from Paris said French police opened fire killing the terrorists seconds after they drew their weapons. The eye-wtness landed at Ben Gurion Airport at 2 a.m. local time, many hours late because their departure from Paris was delayed by the attack. There were only about a dozen passengers in the El Al jumbo jet. Originally a tourist party of over 200 French insurance agents was to have made the flight but the group cancelled their trip after the shooting. The arriving passengers said this was because three of the group were wounded but reports from Paris said the casualties were Iberia Airline passengers and that no El Al passengers were hurt. Cabinet Blasts Sale JERUSALEM (WNS) - The United States came under sharp attack May 21 for its warplanes sales package to Israel, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. At the same time, the Cabinet deferred consideration / of key questions about Israel's peace proposals which the U.S. had submitted last month. Cabinet Secretary Arye Naor said the ministers I "had no time"- to deal with the questions' the Carter Administration had posed to Premier Menachem Begin and Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan three weeks ago when they were in Washington on Israel's ideas for the future of the West Bank after a five- year period, assuming that Israel's "self-rule" offer was accepted., Naor told reporters the Cabinet would deal with that matter at a later session. Some observers concluded that the government was demonstrating its anger over the aircraft package deal. While government officials did not directly encourage that interpretation a statement read by Naor left no doubt regarding (CONTINUED ON PAGE1H Rabbi Marc Lee Raphael Elected Rabbi Of Congregation Beth Shalom Rabbi Marc Lee Raphael has been elected Rabbi of Beth Shalom and is now providing the recently established reform congregation with full rabbinic services.

An Associate Professor of A Secret Chapter In Israel-Moroccan Contents By Edwin Eytan (Copyright 1978, JTA, Inc.) The French-Arab weekly, "Jeune Afrique," recently revealed a secret chapter of purported close Israeli- Moroccan contacts which included a visit to Morocco by Premier Yitzhak Rabin and two similar visits by Foreign Minister Moshe Dayan, the most recent of them last January after Dayan met with the Pope and while he was supposed to pay a one-day private visit to Sicily, according to Jeune Afrique. The paper, earlier this month, also said that Premier Menachem Begin ' ' was also scheduled to visit '' Morocco and, like Rabin and ' ' Dayan, meet with Kiiig Hassan. Begin's visit to Rabat was originally due to take place in November, immediately after his scheduled official visit to London. 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 Afrique siid, to which the Moroccan : government 'has replied: . "We are prepared ' to welcome you secretly unless Israel recognizes the Palestinians' right to a homeland 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 Moroccan jet plane accompanied by a prominent Moroccan personality. Rabin spent two days in Morocco visiting Fez, Rabat, Tanger and Casablanca. He met both King Hassan and Moroccan Prime Minister Ahmed Osman speaking English with both of them. Osman, a former . Moroccan ambassador in Washington, speaks English1 fluently. Jeune1 Afrique1 '&i_l 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 during 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 consequences to be expected," the paper said. For one year, there were no more top level Moroccan- Israeli agricultural mission visited Morocco. The' renewal of the top , level contacts started in September, 1977 when Dayan, by then Foreign Minister, mysteriously .^dlspjppeared" in Brussels. He W$s 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 correspondent was in Rome at the time and suspected a possible secret meeting when Dayan again mysteriously disappeared for one day. An Israeli spokesman said instead that he only paid a visit to Sicily in compliance .with .Italian protocol. .
