S. Res. 65 states that the U.S. has an “unbreakable commitment” to ensuring the security of Israel and that the U.S. supports Israel’s right to self-defense. The resolution also urges that if Israel is forced to act militarily in self-defense of its people, territory or existence that the U.S. will provide “diplomatic, military and economic support.”

Because the resolution “urges” military support for Israel in the need for self-defense, it would not bind the U.S. president to taking military action.
