senators plan resolution promising support should Israel strike
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told JTA on Tuesday that he and Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) were drafting the resolution for introduction next month in the Senate.
Graham, attending the Republican National Convention in Tampa this week, said he was seeking Democratic co-sponsors.
The resolution would underscore the Senate's hopes for peace and for sanctions to force Iran to make its nuclear program more transparent, he said.
"But in the event Israel had to take preventive action, we would have their back," Graham said, in terms of military, economic and diplomatic support.
