British minister Priti Patel should not be condemned for meeting Israeli officials during vacation

The UK cabinet minister Priti Patel's come under fire from the establishment in Britain for holding undisclosed meetings with Israeli officials:
Cabinet minister Priti Patel has apologised for failing to give neither Theresa May or Boris Johnson the heads-up about meeting Israel's prime minister.

The International Development Secretary spent 12 days in the country on a family holiday in August, but also spent her time meeting top ministers, officials, businesses and charities.

When conducting official Government work overseas, ministers are supposed to tell the Foreign Office.

But Ms Patel has now admitted she gave no advance notice of her trip.

Downing Street has also revealed the Prime Minister was in the dark over Ms Patel's meeting with Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu for more than two months, until last Friday.

Ms Patel's actions have prompted calls for an investigation and even her resignation, with the senior Tory accused of breaching ministerial rules and misleading the British public.

On her return from the trip, Ms Patel ordered new work in her department on UK-Israeli partnerships.
So I guess that's why they're so incensed? Shameful. She doesn't deserve this, certainly not if she doesn't buy into the whole "palestine" crap her country's moonbats have been pushing for who knows how long. The Jerusalem Post says she risks being fired:
Britain’s International Development secretary Priti Patel’s political future hung in the balance on Wednesday after The Sun newspaper reported she had held two further undisclosed meetings with Israeli politicians.

As Prime Minister Theresa May heads towards a 2019 EU divorce that will shape Britain’s prosperity for generations, her minority government has stumbled into several controversies that risk shattering her dwindling authority.

Patel apologized to May on Monday for failing to report she had met senior Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, during a private holiday.
Oh please. May's been a disaster for Britain, doing little or nothing to combat all the Islamofascism they've allowed into the country at the expense of taxpayers, and may have undermined conservativess as a result. Her government hasn't proven especially impressive on the following:
Besides her government’s sometimes contradictory signals on Brexit, May has faced criticism from opponents for her handling of other issues: from a deadly apartment block fire in June to a sexual harassment scandal in parliament that prompted Michael Fallon, her loyal defense secretary, to resign on November 2.
And if they didn't deal with that properly, it's another failing on their part. And I've got a feeling their double-standards on Brexit are worse than we think. Interestingly, the Jewish Chronicle says:
Number 10 instructed Development Secretary Priti Patel not to include her meeting with the Israel foreign ministry official Yuval Rotem in New York on 18 September in her list of undisclosed meetings with Israelis which was published on Monday, the JC has learned.

Ms Patel listed 12 meetings in the statement, and the emergence of two more last night is thought to have made her sacking imminent.

But the JC understands, from two different sources, that Ms Patel did disclose the meeting with Mr Rotem but was told by Number 10 not to include it as it would embarrass the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.
So they did know? Then this is all just a farce to save face when they don't have to. Such idiocy and a waste of time.
