The membership of People's
Food Co-Op in Ann Arbor, a
major food cooperative there,
will vote in several weeks
whether to boycott the purchase
of all Israeli goods.
Such divest-from-Israel cam-
paigns are unfair and under-
mine efforts toward peace.
Harvard law professor Alan
Dershowitz has proposed
instead that institutions look
at all nations and choose for
investment those with good
human rights records.
Who's managing your life insurance portfolio?
If you think life insurance is an expense to be avoided instead of an asset class to be
managed. then you are likely missing out on millions of dollars of generational wealth.
You and your advisors understand and track the consequences of fluctuating stock
prices. bond yields and interest rates on your assets. Shouldn't you apply the same
diligence to the dynamic life insurance marketplace?

Come meet with us. Together we can create a more efficient insurance portfolio.
reduce or eliminate premiums now and generate more wealth for generations to come.
A successful resolution depends
now on finding a productive start-
ing point for the discussions,
on energizing a new beginning
untainted by the past. The current
needs of both the Israelis and the
Palestinians — security, the oppor-
tunity to work, the availability of
fertile land and usable water, a
satisfactory system of health care, a
legal system to help ensure justice
— must indeed be addressed; but
satisfying those needs requires
some degree of self-imposed amne-
Memories can be seductive,
but we have to forget the past for
there to be a future. Thoughtful
Palestinian sympathizers should
be searching for a resolution of
the tragedy, not a justification
for increased discrimination and
revenge. 1 I
