UK Home Secretary Calls for Crackdown on Support for Hamas


UK Home Secretary Suella Braverman is demanding that police take swift action against displays of support for Hamas, the Palestinian militant group. Braverman's call comes after videos emerged of people in the UK celebrating the recent attack on Israel.

Celebratory Videos Circulate in the UK

Footage showing individuals in the UK rejoicing over the attack on Israel has sparked outrage. Among the videos shared is one by Rachel Riley, a well-known television presenter, and Countdown star. In her images, she captured two cars with Palestinian flags "bouncing up and down."

"Zero Tolerance" for Anti-Semitism and Terrorism

Braverman has made it clear that the UK will not tolerate any form of anti-Semitism or glorification of terrorism. She stated, "There must be zero tolerance for anti-Semitism or glorification of terrorism on the streets of Britain." To combat these concerns, Braverman has spoken with the Community Security Trust (CST), a charity aimed at protecting British Jews from anti-Semitism.

Protecting Jewish Communities

In her discussions with the CST, Braverman expressed her commitment to the safety and well-being of Jewish communities in the UK. She reassured them that the government is taking all necessary measures to ensure their protection. Braverman added, "I expect the police to use the full force of the law against displays of support for Hamas, other proscribed terrorist groups, or attempts to intimidate British Jews."

Emergency Protest Planned

The Palestine Solidarity Campaign has called for an "emergency" demonstration to take place on Monday outside the Israeli embassy. This protest is anticipated to draw attention to the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas.
