Expresses unequivocal support for Israel's ‘inalienable right to defend itself in the face of an imminent nuclear or military threat from Iran, terrorist organizations, and the countries that harbor them, notwithstanding some statements made by the Obama Administration,’ referring to the administration’s stated opposition to an Israeli attack on Iran. Reaffirms the United States’ bond with Israel and pledges to ensure that Israel continues to receive ‘critical economic and military assistance, including missile defense capabilities, needed to address the threat of Iran.’ Condemns the Government of Iran for its continued support of terrorism and its hateful rhetoric toward Israel.
