    Background: AT THE RABAT HILTON IN MOROCCO, THE ISLAMIC CONFERENCE DELEGATES GATHERED TO HEAR SPEECHES FROM THE SHAH OF IRAN AND PRESIDENT BOUMEDIENNE OF ALGERIA. KING HASSAN OF MOROCCO ALSO SPOKE.

    THE ORIGINAL NARROWER CONCEPT OF THE MEETING -- TO DISCUSS THE BURNING OF THE EL AQSA MOSQUE LAST MONTH IN JERUSALEM--WAS SOON BROADENED BY DELEGATES WHO WANT TO INCLUDE MANY PROBLEMS WHICH ARE COMMON TO MOSLEMS. IN PARTICULAR SOME WANT TO DISCUSS THE PALESTINE PROBLEM.

    IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT INDIA HE INVITED TO TAKE PART IN DISCUSSIONS AS A FULL PARTICIPANT.

    INDIA HAD SOME 60 MILLION MOSLEMS IN HER TOTAL POPULATION OF ABOUT 449 MILLION. OFFICIALS EARLIER EXPLAINED HER ABSENCE, BY SAYING THAT ONLY COUNTRIES WITH MOSLEM MAJORITY POPULATIONS HAD BEEN INVITED. THE SUGGESTION FOR THIS MOVE CAME FROM KING FAISAL OF SAUDI ARABIA.

    PRESIDENT MOUARI BOUMEDIENNE OF ALGERIA HAD SUGGESTED THAT THE PALESTINE LIBERATION ORGANISATION, WHICH GROUPS TOGETHER SEVERAL PALESTINIAN COMMANDO ORGANISATIONS, WAS ALSO ADMITTED, BUT AS AN OBSERVER.

    WHEN THE SHAH OF IRAN SPOKE HE URGED DELEGATES TO "CHOOSE THE PATH OF WISDOM AND REASON, AND IN THIS WAY MAKE OURSELVES LOVED." IRAN MAINTAINS DISCREET ECONOMIC AND POLITICAL TIES WITH ISRAEL.
