National Unity Coalition for Israel
National Unity Coalition for Israel (NUCI), consists of 500 fundamentalist Christian and right-wing Jewish supporters of Israel. The group was so right-wing that Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, a leader in coordinating support for Israel, said he resigned from the NUCI's board because of the group's "anti-Rabin, pro-Likud" positions. On Jan. 21, 1998, the New York Times quoted Charles Jacobs saying the NUCI was "'giving voice' to evangelical Christians who are ardent Zionists." 
Their website states, "Since July 1991, the Unity Coalition for Israel has convened an alliance of Christian and Jewish organizations actively working together to generate support for the State of Israel."
They state their mission is to "focus the efforts of secular and religious organizations and individuals for whom the existence of the State of Israel is central and essential to the future of the free world."
Their site states that they reach "millions of people through more than 200 Christian & Jewish organizations, including churches, synagogues, prayer networks, think tanks and thousands of individuals.
"UCI maintains a clearinghouse to update the public by forwarding our daily newsletters, Urgent Action Alerts, Media Alerts, Press Releases and utilizing our two websites. Information is widely distributed throughout this vast network of staunch, reliable friends, keeping them informed concerning the latest issues pertaining to the war for the free world in which we are engaged.
"We contact radio stations & TV networks by e-mail with the latest news and views not found in most secular media. Routine messages go to: 1,700 religious radio stations, 245 Christian TV stations, and all secular media. Emails are sent regularly to secular newspapers and magazines, 120 Christian newspapers, 70 Jewish newspapers."
