A growing number of Christian college students are showing their support for Israel by forming student-led campus chapters of Christians United for Israel (CUFI).
Andrew Summey, national director of CUFI on Campus, estimates the organization has a presence on roughly 150 campuses and that 35 colleges have a designated CUFI liaison or pro-Israel group. In April, the first campus Night to Honor Israel event was held at the University of Oklahoma.
"What we try to do is raise the awareness of students on moral reasons to support Israel," Summey said. "We want to create a positive view of Israel. It's quite a challenge for most of these students. It's tough to be a Christian on many secular campuses, then you add the Israel support to it and it makes it even more challenging."
