People waving a flag in support can be jailed for six months while those meeting the extremists — as former Labour boss Jeremy Corbyn once did — face a decade in prison.

Mrs Patel said a ban would protect the Jewish community and added: “Hamas has significant terrorist capability and has long been involved in significant violence.”

Lord Austin of Dudley, UK trade envoy to Israel, said: “I’m delighted the Home Secretary has banned the genocidal terrorists of Hamas.”
