[Page S8466] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 27--EXPRESSING THE SENSE OF CONGRESS THAT THE UNITED STATES SHOULD ENSURE THAT ISRAEL IS ABLE TO ADEQUATELY ADDRESS AN EXISTENTIAL IRANIAN NUCLEAR THREAT AND TO SUPPORT ISRAEL'S RIGHT TO RESPOND TO THE POTENTIAL THREAT OF A SYRIAN S-300 AIR DEFENSE SYSTEM Mr. TOOMEY submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations: S. Con. Res. 27 Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE. This resolution may be cited as the ``Support of Israel Against Existential Threat Resolution of 2013''. SEC. 2. SENSE OF CONGRESS ON SUPPORT TO ISRAEL TO ADDRESS IRANIAN AND SYRIAN THREATS. It is the sense of Congress that-- (1) the United States should ensure that Israel, as a critical United States ally, is able to adequately address an existential Iranian nuclear threat, and the Secretary of Defense should seek related opportunities for defense cooperation and partnership on military capabilities where appropriate; and (2) the delivery of the S-300 air defense system to Syria would pose a grave risk to Israel, and the United States supports Israel's right to respond to this grave threat as needed. ____________________
