Pro-Israel supporters are increasing their presence on campus in the build up towards the expected Palestinian statehood bid at the United Nations later this month.

Some 50 Jewish Agency for Israel representatives will set up large white “dialogue tents” on 20 campuses across North America including Berkeley, George Washington, Columbia and Cornell in an attempt to influence public opinion.

“In the midst of the struggle against Israel around the world, our job is to bring Jewish students closer to Israel and foster in them a sense of belonging, pride and identity,” said JAFI chairman Natan Sharansky in a press release.
