Dear Friend of Israel:
Just as we are trying to absorb the horror of the last few months of violence—the ongoing "knife intifada" in Israel, the Paris massacres and now the San
Bernardino slaughter—major Jewish and Christian holidays are upon us.
How are we to deal with our opposing emotions? On the one hand we feel anger at Islamic terror . . . and on the other we're supposed to feel joy as we
celebrate our deepest spiritual beliefs.
Above all, as a pro-Israel advocate, I feel deep frustration and fear at how the recent murders of innocent Israelis have been treated in mainstream media.
Frankly, it makes me fighting mad.
We see this second-class treatment of Israel vividly in mainstream media coverage of the "knife intifada." Article after article in the New York Times, the Guardian and other media highlight the fate of the Palestinian terrorists over that of Israeli
We at FLAME have regularly reported such outrageous headlines, like this one by the BBC: "Palestinian shot dead after Jerusalem attack kills two." These
stories are about Islamist murderers being killed, rather than about the innocent Jews they have stabbed to death!
So back to my question: How can you and I channel our anger in a way that makes sense during this season of gratitude and good cheer?
I have an answer, and it's why I've dedicated myself to FLAME. As you know, FLAME has spoken out against these lies about Israel and the global jihad in
hard-hitting editorials we run in national media, such as our recent hasbarah on "Palestinian Incitement to Terror."
In the last 60 days we also refuted the Palestinians' lie that they are the native people of the Holy Land in our paid editorial, " Who Are the Indigenous People of Palestine?"—which offers incontrovertible proof that the Jews preceded
Arabs in the region by 1,800 years.
Finally, in the wake of the Paris carnage by ISIS terrorists, FLAME is now publishing a hard-hitting new message, " Paris. Jerusalem."—which makes it clear: The same sick global jihad that motivated Paris and San Bernardino
attacks is also behind the latest "knife intifada" in Israel. (The media ignore this connection!)
These messages are powerful PR for Israel, but as I'm sure you can imagine, telling the truth about Israel via such paid editorial messages is costly. Are you ready to join us?
Here's the double payoff for making a
to FLAME at this time:
First, you help tell the truth about Israel
in the media—something that's sorely needed if we're to maintain vital U.S. financial and political support of the Jewish state.
Second, you can celebrate the upcoming holidays
with even more joy in your heart, because you have done a mitzvah for Israel—a generous good deed appropriate to the season.
That's why, if you're ready to take action against global jihad in Israel, the United States and worldwide, and if you've ever bemoaned Israel's "bad PR," I urge
you to help FLAME with your financial support at this time. Just go to
to help now.
Please remember that the overwhelming majority of FLAME's financial support comes from individuals just like you. One by one, Jews, Christians and
unaffiliated alike contribute generously to this noble cause—to help ensure that Israel survives.
So whether you give $1,000 or $500 or $100 . . . or even $50 or $36 or $18—every donation is important—every dollar you contribute helps us keep
telling the truth about the inspiring Jewish nation.
Best of all, of course, your donation is tax-deductible.

Thanks in advance for your year-end generosity and your continued support of FLAME's good work.
