FLAME ads communicate the facts about Israel and its enemies to millions of Americans. Below you’ll find examples of messages FLAME has published nationally and internationally in recent months.

Should the U.N. Declare a Palestinian State?
Palestinians have asked the U.N. for statehood recognition, but would this really lead to an Israeli-Palestinian peace—or to a viable Palestinian state?

In 1947, the United Nations proposed independent states for Arabs and Jews, but the Arabs rejected this plan. Since then, Israel has made many offers of land for peace and a Palestinian state, all of which the Arabs rejected. In 2013, Arab Palestinians again walked out of peace talks and instead recently approached the U.N. to recognize their state. But can the U.N. dictate an Israeli-Palestinian peace . . . or create a Palestinian state?

Who Should Pray on Jerusalem's Temple Mount?
Palestinians are killing Israelis in Jerusalem, saying al Aqsa mosque is threatened by Jews wanting to pray on the Temple Mount. Does this justify murder?

As the home of two Jewish temples dating back 3,000 years, the Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism, and Jews the world over still come to pray at its Western Wall. Situated atop the Temple Mount today are al Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock, from which Muslims say Mohammed ascended to heaven. Claiming that al Aqsa is in danger because some Jews want to pray on the site, Palestinian terrorists have begun murdering Jewish civilians. Should only one group be allowed to pray there?

Why Can't the Palestinians Have a State?
After the Arabs lost the West Bank and Gaza to the Jewish state in 1967, they denied Israel’s right to exist—as well as the prospect of a Palestinian state.

When Israel defeated five invading Arab armies in 1967, it drove Jordan from eastern Jerusalem and the Jewish homelands of Judea and Samaria (later known as the West Bank) and repulsed Egypt from Gaza. Shortly thereafter, the Arab League issued its famous Khartoum Resolution: "No peace with Israel, no recognition of Israel and no negotiations with it." Since then, despite numerous Israeli offers of land for a Palestinian state, the Arabs continue to reject peace.

Can We Afford an Israeli-Palestinian Peace?
Reaching a peace accord in the midst of today's Middle East turmoil could hand a victory to global jihad and a horror to the rest of the world.

Hamas, as well as terror groups ISIS, al Qaeda and Hizbollah, are waging a global jihad—seeking to conquer Arab lands, attack the West and establish an Islamist caliphate. Their numbers and conquests are growing. Though Israel recently repulsed Hamas militarily, the jihadi group's popularity among Palestinians has skyrocketed. Indeed, Hamas threatens to soon seize the Palestinian West Bank, as it did Gaza in 2007. Is this the time for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement?

They assassinate crying "Allahu Akbar," but Mr. Obama refuses to call them radical Islamists: Why?


An Urgent Letter
from FLAME President,
Gerardo Joffe


December, 2014

Dear Friend of Israel, dear Friend of FLAME:

Because I know you care deeply about Israel, I want to update you on Israel’s despicable treatment by mainstream media in recent months, as well as efforts to combat Israel’s alleged “poor PR.”

But first, let me recap quickly the truly frightening situation in Israel’s neighborhood.

As you know, Israel is now surrounded—within just miles of its borders— by the most vicious and fanatical Islamist terror groups in the world.

Just imagine the horror if you lived in Israel right now.

Iran-sponsored Hizbollah rules Lebanon on Israel’s northwest border. ISIS, al Qaeda and the al Nusra Front are on a bloody rampage in Syria just over Israel’s northern border. And Hamas—whose charter commits it to killing Jews and obliterating the state of Israel and which has launched 15,000 rockets at Israeli civilians—governs Gaza just a few miles from Tel Aviv to the south.

Consider, too, this terrifying reality:

  • Hizbollah started a war with Israel in 2006 and still . . .
