During recent weeks, campuses across the United States have taken part in Israel Education Month, trying to raise awareness about the country and their culture.
Sunday afternoon, Florida State University's Friends of Israel, held a rally at the capitol for Israel and democracy. Students say good relations with the U.S. has been the cornerstone of Israel's foreign policy. Some students say the rally shows both countries share a common bond.
"I think this rally is very important because it shows both American's and Israelis have a common agenda which is fighting terrorism," said Neil Lazarus, and expert on Middle Eastern Affairs. "Since 9-11 it's been a bigger issue."
