    The British Home Office said Friday the Palestinian terror group Hamas had been banned for being a terrorist organization, something the US and EU had done long ago. In a statement, Home Secretary Priti Patel said, “Hamas has signfiicant terrorist capability, including access to extensive and sophisticated weaponry as well as terrorist training facilities,” adding, “That is why today I have acted to proscribe Hamas in its entirety.” Patel will urge parliament to make the change next week, saying the move was “based upon a wide range of intelligence, information and also links to terrorism.” Hamas, she said, was “fundamentally...

    British Home Secretary Priti Patel on Wednesday denounced the incident on Tuesday in which Israel’s Ambassador to the UK, Tzipi Hotovely, had to be removed under tight security from a speaking engagement at the London School of Economics. “Disgusted by the treatment of the Israeli Ambassador at LSE last night. Antisemitism has no place in our universities or our country,” tweeted Patel. “I will continue to do everything possible to keep the Jewish community safe from intimidation, harassment and abuse,” she added. “I have been in touch with Tzipi Hotovely and the police have my full backing in investigating this...

The warning comes after the government lifted international travel restrictions on Monday, allowing people to go on holiday, but...

    We knew this was coming. UK Home Secretary Priti Patel has been extremely clear about what she thinks of Black Lives Matter. “Those protests were dreadful,” she said last month. She’s also been clear about what she thinks of Extinction Rebellion. At a police conference last year she branded its activists “eco-crusaders turned criminals”. Now we see what she plans to do about it. On Tuesday, the Home Office published the police, crime, sentencing and courts bill. It covers a wide range of areas, from sentencing to digital information. But it has a specific section on the policing of protests....

    Priti Patel has called for UK borders to be closed to stop people arriving from coronavirus hotspots. The Home Secretary is seeking support for her plans to stop passengers being able to fly in to the UK from countries with high levels of infections such as Iran, the US and China. Mrs. Patel believes flights from virus hotspots should not be allowed when the country is on lockdown to prevent its spread, The Daily Telegraph reported. The lack of a travel ban in the UK is in stark contrast to policies in the EU and the US, which have closed...

    Priti Patel, Britain's new interior minister, is a right-wing, hardcore Brexiteer who was previously sacked from the cabinet for secret meetings with the Israeli government. Home Secretary Patel, 47, impressed Britain's new Prime Minister Boris Johnson when she campaigned beside him for "Vote Leave" in the 2016 EU membership referendum. Patel is a social conservative who has voted against introducing same-sex marriage and has expressed support for restoring the death penalty -- although she has since rowed back. On taking office, Johnson promoted her to one of the chief ministries. She was the most senior woman around the new cabinet...
