FLAME’s Ads and Positions Archive

Below you’ll find an archive of the ads and articles that FLAME has published since its inception. To access the full text of a particular article, click on its title in the list below.

The position papers (hasbarah messages) you will address on this page are listed numerically. Several of these messages, however, have been re-edited and re-published, so as to respond to current realities. The most recent ads we have published are at the top of the archive list. To see them now click here.

PLEASE NOTE: The ads below are available in Adobe Acrobat Reader (PDF) format or html format. The PDF format allows you to view — and print out — the ad exactly as it appears in national print media. You will need to have a copy of Adobe's FREE Acrobat Reader software on your computer to view and print out ads in PDF format, and most computers already have this program installed. Click here if you wish to download a free copy of Acrobat Reader now.

To view or print out an ad in PDF format, click on PDF below the title; to view an ad in HTML format, click on HTML. (HTML format will display the ad as a standard web page. Note that printing from an html display often results in the sides being cut off.)

If you have any questions or comments about the content, ideas, or philosophy espoused in these messages, e-mail them to FLAME President, Gerardo Joffe by clicking here. While we read every e-mail message, please understand that because of the volume of e-mails received, we cannot guarantee a personal reply.

Our small team of dedicated volunteers types each ad in. Occasional typos do slip in, so please let the webmaster know about any typos, broken links, or other technical problems you find.

Regarding the numbering system below: We occasionally republish one of our hasbarah (educational and clarifying) messages because the matter with which it deals has again become topical and of immediate interest. We usually re-edit such messages somewhat so as to take any changes or new developments into account. Such re-edited messages are numbered with a suffix (such as a, b or c). That is the reason that our published messages don't always appear in numerical order. The messages as listed on this website always represent the latest edit if applicable.

Be sure to tell your friends to visit the FLAME website! Thank you!
