I've had
my current
phon or a while
now, what do I have
to do to get a newer
model and how
much will it cost?

Sounds like you're looking to
do an "upgrade." An upgrade,
Aan d the cost, depends on
several variable factors. For example,
we would need to know how long you
have been in your current contract,
when it expires, which carrier you are
with and the type of service you have.
When you come in to see us, bring
a copy of your current bill and we'll
evaluate your situation and find the
best solution for you.

My current contract is about
to expire and I'm looking to
purchase a new cell phone.
Can Abu tell me the difference
between postpaid and prepaid?

Postpaid means you have a
long-term billing agreement
ith a service provider that
bills you regularly each month.
Prepaid means you purchase your
mobile services in advance of using
them. There is no contract and no
regular billing. When you visit one
of our 40 Metro Detroit locations our
expertz can discuss your options in
detail and help you make a decision.

exhibitions director at the Willy Brandt Haus.



he Forgotten Photographs:' an exhibition of photos
taken by Israeli press photographer Paul Goldman
from 1943 through 1961, opened at the Willy Brandt
Haus in Berlin, Germany, on March 12 in commemoration of
Israel's 60th anniversary.
In attendance were members of the German Parliament
and Vice President of the Israeli Knesset Colette Avital.
The current exhibit contains photos from the collection
owned by Farmington Hills-based real estate developer
Spencer M. Partrich, who bought 40,000 negatives from
Goldman's widow in Tel Aviv in 2001. Stored for years in an
attic, among the negatives were images of historic figures and
events from Israel's early years, including well-known pictures
of Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion performing a headstand
on a Herzliya beach.
About 2,000 negatives have been restored so far; 106 of
these were compiled as a world-class photographic exhibition.
Since its initial opening at the Eretz Israel Museum in Tel Aviv

Al Qaida Demands Attacks On Jews, U.S.
Jerusalem/JTA — Al Qaida renewed its call for Muslims to
attack Jews and the United States.
"Muslims! Today is your day:' Osama bin Laden's deputy,
Ayman al-Zawahri, said in a voice recording posted Monday
on the Internet. "Hit the interests of the Jews and the
Americans and all those who participated in the aggression
against Muslims!'
Zawahri appeared to be referring to Israel's offensive
against Hamas rocket crews in the Gaza Strip this month
in which scores of Palestinians, among them civilians, were
"Monitor the targets, collect the money, prepare the ord-
nance, plan accurately — and then attack:' Zawahri said. "No
one can say today that we should fight the Jews in Palestine
The message also denounced Denmark for its cartoons
lampooning the prophet Mohammed, and Egypt, Jordan and
Saudi Arabia for their ties to the West.

in September 2004, the exhibit has traveled around the world,
stopping at the Jewish Museum in Vienna; the Art House in
Singapore; and the Breman Museum in Atlanta as well as
Budapest, Bangkok, New Delhi, Riga, Detroit and Baltimore.
In addition to the Berlin showing, "The Forgotten
Photographs" is currently on display at the Museum of Jewish
Heritage in New York City and at the Israeli Embassy in Taipei,
"It was a double-edged sword for me as a Jew having Paul
Goldman's photographs exhibited on German soil;' said
Partrich. "I was proud and honored that the Willy Brandt
Haus chose our pictures to represent the birth of Israel and
its early years as part of a conference to celebrate Israel's 60th
Partrich added, "Yet I can't forget how Paul Goldman was
forced to flee his native Hungary in 1940 because of the Nazis
and all that occurred in Berlin and Germany 70 years ago.
Having his photographs there today is some small retribution
for him and for us!' E

Israel Seeks Rich Immigrants
Jerusalem/JTA — Israel's Finance Ministry is putting together
tax incentives for potential billionaire immigrants. Under a
plan championed by Finance Minister Roni Bar-On, Jewish
magnates who move to Israel would receive sweeping income
tax exemptions for 10 years.
The perks could be extended if the billionaires invest in
Israel's underprivileged peripheral communities. Israel has
been alert to a potential dollar drain since diamond tycoon
Lev Leviev relocated to London in January.

Armored Trucks OK'd For P.A.
Jerusalem/JTA — Israel approved the delivery of armored
vehicles to the Palestinian Authority. The permission for deliv-
ery of the 25 Russian-made vehicles came during last week's
visit to Israel by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
Israel has been reluctant to allow P.A. troops to be armed
until it receives assurances that the P.A. will not to allow
weapons to reach terrorists. Israel is under pressure from the
Bush administration to allow equipment to reach P.A. forces.
