    Leaders near summit
Hebron agreement could rescue Mideast peace efforts
JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel and the Pales
tinians moved closer Monday to an agreement
on Israel’s long-delayed withdrawal from the last
major West Bank city it occupies. Both sides
said a summit of their leaders was imminent.
Officials were trying to arrange a meeting
between Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Is
raeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. U.S.
envoy Dennis Ross was shuttling between the
two leaders Monday night.
Both sides warned of a possible last-minute
snag, but the atmosphere appeared markedly im
proved over the past weeks’ acrimony. Pales
tinians walked out of peace talks last week over
an Israeli proposal to withdraw troops from the
West Bank town of Hebron.
Foreign Minister David Levy said an agree
ment on Hebron was expected within days.
“If there is no last-minute setback, an agree
ment is close,” he said. “It is not a matter of
weeks, but maybe even a few days.”
An agreement on Hebron would go a long
, way toward rescuing the Mideast peace effort
from the crisis brought on by Islamic militants’
suicide bombings in Israel last winter, the May
election of conservative Netanyahu and last
month’s deadly gun battles between Israeli and
Palestinian forces.
Arafat, who was in Jordan, planned to re
turn to the West Bank town of Jericho on Tues
day with Jordan’s King Hussein.
Israel Radio said the sides had already
reached broad agreement on the main sticking
point — security arrangements in Hebron, the
volatile town where 450 Jews live among 94,000
The Israeli official said an Arafat-Netanyahu
summit would be to announce an agreement, but
Palestinian officials disagreed.
Hassan Asfour stuck to the Palestinian posi
tion that no changes should be made in the Is
rael-PLO accord that called for Israel to with
draw from Hebron in March. He said reports of
agreement on security issues were “totally un
A U.S. official said on condition of anonym
ity that an agreement was not imminent and that
a summit had to be carefully prepared or there
would be “double disappointment” if a Hebron
agreement was not announced._

When Consumers Digest named the Oldsmobile Achieva "A Best Buy," it seems they
were right on the money. And here's proof. The Achieva comes loaded with standard
features you would hope to find (but cant always) in a car of its class, such as air
conditioning and anti-lock brakes. In adcftion, its DOHC engine serves up 150hp without
sacrificing on fuel economy (EPA est. MPG 22 city / 33 hwy). Achieva also offers a
PassLock anti-theft system and battery run-down protection, as well as dual air bags and
daytime running lamps for safety. Again, all standard. Consumers Digest rray call it "A
Best Buy,” but we invite you to come in and see for yourself.
