British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak fired Home Secretary Suella Braverman on Monday.
Braverman was a strong supporter of Israel and did much to protect the British Jewish community from growing anti-Semitism, for which he was criticized several times.
The Home Secretary was sacked after he accused British police in an opinion column in The Times of “selection” by being more lenient with left-wing pro-Palestinian protesters than their right-wing counterparts.
In the article, he compared the pro-Palestinian protests to Protestant marches in Northern Ireland, which a former Conservative government minister described as “completely offensive” and “ignorant.”
His critics accused Braverman of undermining police operational independence and public trust.
Last month, just days after the Hamas massacre in southern Israel, the Home Secretary wrote to police chiefs in England and Wales that the use of Palestinian flags and other pro-Palestinian symbols “may not be lawful” and may require post-terrorism police intervention. Semitic demonstrators took to the streets of London, rejoicing at the news of the massacre committed by Hamas terrorists.
