Budd-Supported Resolution Standing with Israel Passes Senate

Washington, D.C. — Today, the Senate passed S. Res. 417, a resolution supporting Israel, as they face an unprecedented series of terrorist attacks from Hamas. Senator Ted Budd (R-NC) was an original co-sponsor of the resolution, which reads:

Now, therefore, be it resolved that:

The Senate –

(1) stands with Israel as it defends itself, including Israeli efforts to diminish the threat posed by Hamas;

(2) reaffirms Israel’s right to self-defense, and is committed to helping Israel safeguard its people from future aggression;

(3) calls on all countries to unequivocally condemn Hamas’ war on Israel, including Hamas’ intentional targeting of, and attacks against, civilians;

(4) demands that Hamas immediately cease its attacks against Israel and safely release all living hostages and return the bodies of deceased hostages;

(5) condemns Iran’s support for global terrorism, including its support for terrorist groups such as Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad;

(6) calls on the United States to lead an international effort to deprive Hamas of Iranian and other sources of funding and lethal assistance that the terror group relies on to threaten Israel;

(7) warns against any other party hostile to Israel taking advantage of the current situation;

(8) reaffirms the United States’ commitment to Israel’s security; and

(9) stands ready to assist Israel with emergency resupply or other security, diplomatic, and intelligence support needs, both during the immediate crisis and in the near future, including by accelerating delivery of defense articles and systems.
