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.
