Graham Resolution Supporting Israel Clears Senate Foreign Relations Committee


WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today applauded the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s passage of S. Res. 65, a bipartisan resolution Graham introduced expressing concerns about the Iranian nuclear threat and the need for the United States to stand with Israel.

Graham’s resolution, which currently has 81 cosponsors, now goes to the Senate floor for consideration.

“Our bond with Israel is deep.  We have no better friend in that part of the world than Israel,” said Graham. “Last year President Obama told the people of Israel, ‘We have your back.’ Our resolution builds upon that statement and makes it clear that we will stand with Israel should Israel be forced to protect itself from Iran.  I appreciate the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s passage of this important resolution.”

The resolution:

  • Declares that the United States has a vital national interest in and unbreakable commitment to, ensuring the existence, survival, and security of the State of Israel.
  • Reaffirms the United States support for Israel’s right to self-defense.
  • Urges that if Israel is compelled to take military action in self-defense, the United States will stand with Israel and provide diplomatic, military, and economic support in its defense of its territory, people, and existence.
