Re "Vote is breach for Jewish, Presbyterian communities" (Forum, June 29): Reuven Taff's article regarding the Presbyterian General Assembly's vote to divest from three companies that do business with Israel carefully avoided any reference to the basis of the Israel-Palestine conflict.

When Israel treats Palestinians fairly, the international community's nearly universal condemnation of Israel's conduct will come to an effective end, and businesses will be able to engage Israel as they would any other country.
