Summary: 

British Home Secretary Sajid Javid will be forced to consider demands to proscribe Islamist militant group Hizballah under the 2000 Terrorism Act after a campaign raced to more than 10,000 signatures. The campaign to proscribe the Lebanon-based Shi’a Islamist group, which has called for the extermination of Jews, has this afternoon surpassed the 10,000 signatures needed to gain an official response from Theresa May’s UK government. The official Parliamentary petition has amassed 10,600 names from all corners of Britain in just 16 days and now the volunteer-led charity Campaign Against Antisemitism, which is behind the move, is calling for 100,000 signatures which would automatically trigger a debate in the House of Commons.
