Senate Resolution Would Allow Strike on Iran 

U.S. would strike if Hezbollah expanded a second front in Israel. 

Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut introduced a bipartisan resolution that recommends the United States launch military strikes on Iran should Iran’s proxy, Hezbollah, expand a second front in the war with Israel. 

“It basically says if the war expands, if Hezbollah opens up a second front in the north against Israel in a substantial way, to overwhelm the Iron Dome, then we should hit the Islamic Republic of Iran. There is no Hamas without the Ayatollah’s support. There’s no Hezbollah without the Ayatollah’s support,” Senator Graham said.  

“It’s aggressive, but it’s absolutely necessary,” Senator Blumenthal said. 

“The resolution puts Iran on notice that all this military force in the region will be coming after you if you expand this war by activating Hezbollah or killing an American through your proxies in Syria and Iraq,” Senator Graham said.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for members of the Senate as they consider and vote on the resolution.
  • For the president and his administration officials as they deliberate actions in support of Israel.
  • For the peace of Jerusalem and for the people and leaders of Israel.
