Nearly half of Americans favor a strike on Iran. According to Ynet News, nearly half of American voters think the United States should use military force to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. The poll was conducted by Pulse Opinion Research for The Hill newspaper which covers events relating to the Congress. 49% of respondents said military force should be used, while 31% said it should not and 20% were not sure. In addition, 62% of respondents said they were somewhat or very concerned about Iran launching a terror attack against the United States, while 37% said they were not very concerned or not at all concerned.

Iran vows to back the Palestinian resistance. According to the Jerusalem Post, Iran pledged to back Palestinian resistance against Israel, saying "soon the Zionist regime will be punished for its plots and aggression," Iran's first Vice President Mohammad Re-za Ra-hi-mi made the remarks to visiting Hamas Prime Minister Is-ma-il Ha-ni-yeh, who arrived for a three-day trip. Rahimi went on to say that "Iran will not retreat one iota from its position on defending the rights of the Palestinian people."

Christians are upset as major court rulings go against British worshippers. According to Persecution.org, a landmark legal ruling banning the tradition of saying prayers at council meetings was denounced as an ‘assault on Britain’s Christian heritage’. The High Court controversially backed an anti-religious campaign to abolish official acts of worship. Christians and politicians reacted with dismay after a judge overturned centuries of custom by outlawing a town hall from putting prayers on the formal agenda. The ruling means prayers will not be allowed at the start of council meetings across England and Wales.
