This is not a prophecy.
This is a description of what has actually
in the UK, the US, France, Spain, Belgium, Australia
- and almost everywhere in the West.
Ireland is currently at stage 2,
but not yet at stage 3.
Looking at other countries though, it seems
inevitable that soon
we will go to stage 3.
I cannot see any argument as to why we would escape it.
Now I believe in treating people as individuals.
Many Muslim immigrants love the West.
Many are fleeing from sharia law and Islamic dictators.
Many have some (sometimes confused) admiration for non-Muslim societies and economies.
Let me expand that point:
Western Muslims are the most liberal, tolerant, pro-democracy Muslims in the world.
Their opinions are far superior to the opinions of Muslims in the Islamic world.
All the dissidents are here
- the religious dissidents,
the political dissidents,
the feminist dissidents, and
the gay dissidents.
All the dissident works
- such as criticism of Islam and
- are published in the West.
This is to be celebrated.
However, there is a substantial minority
of Muslim immigrants
who threaten our western freedoms.
- essentially religious fascists who want to impose their religious beliefs
on the rest of us.
What to do about these aggressors is one of the questions of our time.
We have seen this minority attack
almost every single European and Western country.
plotted against Ireland.
It is probably only a matter of time before they
successfully attack Ireland, too.
"Irish" jihadis have fought and died
for jihad abroad.
Someday this jihad will come home and there will be an attack in Ireland.
As in the UK,
there is a lack of moderate liberal Muslims in Ireland
brave enough to stand up to the Islamists.
As in the UK,
most of the running is being made by infidels.
The Irish state treats the extremist Muslim Brotherhood as representing Muslims in Ireland.
[US diplomatic cable, 2006] says:
and Qadri have told
getting out a positive message on integration is difficult
because the conservative Muslims, or as Satardien refers to
the leaders at ICCI, the Wahhabis and Muslim Brotherhood,
control Islam in Ireland. He alleges that ICCI has the ear
of the GOI and blocks efforts to initiate open dialogue
within the religious community."
Dreaming of an Islamist Ireland, Ruth Dudley Edwards, May 2010:
"Currently, the Department of Foreign Affairs insists that official translations from Arabic into English be done at Clonskeagh mosque - an interesting venue for persecuted Christian asylum-seekers from, say, Egypt."
"an increasingly widespread Islamophobia; fuelled by an ignorance of the politics and history of the Middle East, ill informed stereotyping,
... and a misrepresentation of the tenets of the Islamic faith itself."
Cork Dawah Centre
was in the news in Sept 2013 when FF councillor
complained about night-time activity there
as being in breach of planning permission.
He was roundly called prejudiced by the left.
e.g. See a
ridiculous article by Victoria White, 19 Sept 2013, who compares the Cork Muslims to her own immigrant ancestors,
and worries about the
(of the Muslim Brotherhood).
She shows no interest in what the Cork Muslims or the Halawa family actually believe.
It is the job of the journalist to hide such information.
mocks councillor Ken O'Flynn,
18 Sept 2013.
Imagine smearing these poor honest Cork Muslims by linking them to the brutality of sharia law!
Of course they don't support sharia law!
Only a racist would think that, right?
Well, read on.
It is hilarious that the left, the media and O'Flynn all missed the real story,
which is what does this centre actually believe in?
Do they believe in sharia law?
The answer, of course, is yes.

No reply at all.
The Cork Dawah Centre was officially opened on 12 Oct 2013:
says "I am Dr Qasim Afridi and this is my website."
His blog, 1 Sept 2011,
slanders me as a
who engages in
"vilification of Ireland's Muslim population."
He lies about me that I am a fan of the terrorist Breivik:
"What’s more, he even compares his own thinking to that of the killer Breivik!"
No evidence is presented to support his lies.
Qasim Afridi leads a group letter, April 25, 2008, defending shariah law.
They claim (of course) that "true shariah" has not yet been implemented.
Like "true communism".
They claim (based on no evidence) that the US and UK
have murdered half a million Iraqis.
"We have no hesitation to condemn terrorism in the name of Islam."
But oddly, condemnation of Palestinian terror against Israel does not follow.
Neither does condemnation of the Taliban or the Iraqi resistance.
In fact, they do not name any specific Islamic terror that they condemn.
If Qasim Afridi condemns the above groups
somewhere, please tell me here.
Qasim Afridi has set up some whining
Muslim immigrant group
which he says
is opposed to integration,
whatever that means. (It doesn't sound good.)
Britain and America are killing innocent Muslims.
Um, then how come the people of Iraq and Afghanistan voted
for parties that cooperated
with the militaries of
Britain and America? What do they know that you don't know?
I asked "Rooh",
May 2010, if "Glór Moslamach" would condemn Palestinian terror against Israel, Al Qaeda terror, the Taliban,
the Iraqi resistance, or any other specific
terrorism in the name of Islam.
I predicted he would refuse to give an answer.
He did refuse to give an answer.
This makes their condemnation of "terrorism in the name of Islam" rather unconvincing, to say the least.
An example of the level of "argument" by "Rooh":
A perfectly reasonable guy called D. Moloney says drone attacks
probably kill mostly terrorists not civilians.
"Rooh" responds by screaming that:
"people like Mr Baloney would consider it appropriate to attack and stab any Muslim in Ireland thinking that they are terrorists."
"Rooh" peddles conspiracy theories.
Unable to believe that Muslims are killing Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan,
he believes the suicide bombings must be caused by infidels:
"unless of course they send in a private company like black water and bomb Ireland
and blame it on Muslims, like they have done in Iraq and Pakistan".
OK it may be beneath us to be engaging with a logic-free zone like "Rooh".
But on the bigger issue, if "Glór Moslamach" ever does condemn any specific Islamic terror,
please tell me here.

Nothing to do with Islam, of course.

Oh yes, we are just idiots whose consent is "manufactured".
We are not strong free men like Gillis and Chomsky.

A fascinating show.

No one to ask hard questions.
It looked bad, and the Islamist and jihadist got an easy ride to start with.
At the halfway mark it looked like a puff piece.

says Ireland should control the immigration of extremists:
"Neither should the [Irish] government allow in any further senior clerics from outside Ireland,

Open question to Shaheed Satardien:
Can you state that everyone in the world

Can you state that all Muslims in the world should have the right to freely convert

Let me know the answer here.
Letter, 2 Feb 2007:
"The Supreme Muslim Council of Ireland would like to say that it believes that the rule of civil law,
the democratic system of representation in government,
the protection of the rights of women and minorities
and the freedom of thought and belief - under all of which we live here in Ireland -
are not only compatible with Islamic values but are closer to the ethos and spirit of tolerance,
pluralism and peace in Islam and better serve the Irish Muslim community
than the undemocratic regimes and the draconian judicial systems
found in some predominately Muslim countries today."
Great stuff, but still not enough.
Can the Supreme Muslim Council of Ireland answer my questions above?
Shaheed Satardien is attacked by politically-correct left-wingers and conservative Muslim groups:
that extremist Islamist views are widespread among young Muslims in Ireland.
I agree with
that those who want to deny any possible Islamism problem
- like the NCCRI
and conservative Muslim groups like the ICCI -
are liable to increase "Islamophobia",
while Muslims who challenge Islamism like Satardien
are liable to reduce it.
The ICCI says:
"We have 1,000 people coming to the mosque here at each of the weekend prayer meetings,
and many are horrified that extreme and complete untrue statements are being made,
and allowed to go almost unchallenged."
What are they talking about?
The appalling statements of their fascist associate
No. They are talking about claims that Islamist ideas are spreading among young Irish Muslims.
The ICCI's reaction makes one afraid that these claims must be true.
Then the ICCI says:
"We have had to deal with enough anti-Islam criticism through the years,
but when it comes from one of your supposed own, it is even more difficult to deal with."
Frankly, that sounds like a threat to any Muslim who dares to speak against Islamism.
Not a physical threat, but certainly a threat of
ostracism in the Muslim community.
If the ICCI welcomes Muslims who attack Islamism,
there is no sign of it here.
Describing Satardien as
"one of your supposed own" is a particularly nasty, closed-ranks, tribal
turn of phrase.
As I say, groups like the ICCI merely spread fear of Islam
with reactions like this.
Ali Al Saleh, quoted on 14 Mar 2010:
"In Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, the niqab and the burqa is the culture.
But in Ireland we know the niqab means extremism and radicalism. I have lived in Ireland for more than 25 years and we didn't have the niqab before. This is worrying, as it is a sign we are not successful in defeating extremism.
Extremism is the last stage before being recruited by terrorists. Not all extremists are terrorists, but all terrorists are extremists."
He is a rare Muslim voice in Ireland who does not hate the Americans for liberating Iraq:
"Tomorrow will be the third anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. In many countries today - including Ireland - people opposed to that war will be demonstrating against the invasion which liberated my people ...
But I have to ask these demonstrators some questions. Do you not want my people to enjoy democracy? Do you not want us to breathe the same air of freedom that you breathe? ...
Three years ago, about 100,000 well-intentioned but badly-informed people
in Dublin protested against our liberation from one of the world's most oppressive dictatorships".
On the "anti-war" lies that
blame Bush and Blair for the jihad killings:
"Critics of the war claim that the liberation of Iraq has caused the deaths of tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis. But this is absolutely false. Far more people are killed by terrorist attacks than were killed in the initial invasion
In my own family, these losses are especially personal. My wife lost three brothers in one terrorist attack last year. Multinational forces did not kill them; instead, terrorists with no place in a free and democratic Iraq killed them."
And to finally blow the brains of any Irish lefties:
"As Iraqis living in Ireland ... We thank the Dáil for its resolution in March 2003 endorsing the use of Shannon airport by multinational forces".
What does the anti-American
John Neill, Archbishop of Dublin
think of that?
I oppose the immigration not only of those who support jihad and sharia,
but also of those who do not oppose jihad and sharia.
This is not Ireland's immigration policy, of course.
Ireland lets in Muslims who support jihad and sharia, no problem.
No attempt is made to ensure that Muslims entering Ireland subscribe to western values.
If it is true that these people are connected to the Taliban,
then they should be deported, even if their lives are in danger.
We should not care about the lives and safety of fascists.
We should not let them in,
because they will only attack us.
People who do not believe in Western values should not be let in to the West,
even if they are being persecuted.
The Irish Daily Mail
the irony of them desecrating a Christian church in Ireland rather than a mosque:
"Here was a group of Muslim zealots, some of whom were allied in Afghanistan
to political groups who treat Christianity with murderous contempt."
OK, so maybe it is false that they are Muslim zealots.
But why did they desecrate a church rather than a mosque?
It is reasonable to oppose the immigration of people who threaten Western freedom,
such as any Muslim who supports sharia or jihad or Islamism.
But Ireland should be open to the immigration of people who love the West
and are threatened by Islamists and jihadists.
For example, Ireland should let in apostates from Islam,
who fear the death threats that are mandated in Islam
for leaving the religion.
42 percent of Irish people agree that:
"Islamic fundamentalism is a serious threat for our country".
46 percent of Irish people agree that:
"We must stop countries like Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons,
even if that means taking military action".
Survey of Irish people, Irish Times, 16 Sept 2010,
shows Irish people may be to the right of me on Islam:
49 percent of Irish say wearing the burka in public should be banned.
36 percent say it should not.
I probably think it should not be banned.
But I do think wearing it (or the niqab)
should be grounds for denying immigrants entry
in the first place.
Irish Attitudes Toward Israel.
Rory Miller, 1 October 2006, speculates on the future of Islam in Ireland:
"The local Muslim community is small approaching twenty thousand. ...
The local Muslims are far less extreme than many in Britain, France, or Germany.
When the Mohammed cartoons appeared in Denmark, a few hundred Muslims marched through the streets of Dublin. Their placards were relatively mild by Muslim standards, carrying texts such as: 'You must respect the Prophet.' I have no doubt that in a few years they will carry placards saying, like elsewhere, that people should be killed, or that Europe is dead."
was hostile to the Halawas:
"Institutions like the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland (ICCI) and the Dublin Mosque employ the charge of Islamophobia to divert attention from their creeping extremist agenda, one which has led Ireland to become, after Qatar, the strongest support base in the world for the Muslim Brotherhood. Irish people ought to reflect on this before lending their support to Ibrahim Halawa, whose father is the chief representative of the Brotherhood here. Hussein Halawa answers directly to Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, known for praising Adolf Hitler and the Holocaust as blessings from God. Ali Selim, spokesman for the ICCI, has refused to condemn Osama bin Laden or even acknowledge that the 7/7 bombings were carried out by Muslims."
Surely, according to the logic of the
this makes them
a "racist" group?
After furious attacks from the Irish regressive left,
they sadly changed their mission statement
to remove the reference to the Halawas.
I used to talk here about
Ireland's first black mayor,

But I am confused by a
7 Aug 2007 article

and hence is not an apostate.

Can anyone produce proof that Adebari is an apostate from Islam?
