Islam in Ireland

Here is what has happened in almost every Western country since the 1950s:

  1. First, increased Islamic immigration.
  2. Then, after a while, various Islamic radicals calling for Western laws to change to accomodate sharia.
  3. Finally, Islamic terror attacks against the Western country.

This is not a prophecy. This is a description of what has actually happened in the UK, the US, France, Spain, Belgium, Australia - and almost everywhere in the West.

Ireland recently went through all 3 stages also, with the Dundalk attack being its first Islamic terror attack. I predicted long ago that we would inevitably get to stage 3, and we did. I could not 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: Opinion polls show that 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 Islamism - are published in the West.

This is to be celebrated. However, there is a substantial minority (10-20 percent) of Muslim immigrants who threaten our western freedoms. They are Islamists - 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. 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.

Ireland and the Muslim Brotherhood

The major Islamic centres of Ireland are all said to be linked to the far-right, pro-sharia, Islamist organisation, The Muslim Brotherhood.


The Irish state supports the Muslim Brotherhood

The Irish state treats the extremist Muslim Brotherhood as representing Muslims in Ireland.

Islamic centres in Ireland

South Circular Road mosque, Dublin

The South Circular Road mosque in Dublin (the Islamic Foundation of Ireland) is said to be linked to the Muslim Brotherhood.


Jan 2015: After the Charlie Hebdo massacre, the French-Tunisian cleric Béchir Ben Hassen approves of killing those who insult the Prophet.
From MEMRI. See transcript: "Even blind people, who lost their sight, avenged [the honor] of their Prophet. Therefore, the punishment for anyone who curses the Prophet Muhammad is to be killed. He should be punished by execution. His killing is sanctioned by a number of Quranic verses, by the Sunna, and by the consensus of the scholars of the past."
See more. Video also here.
Nov 2017: The South Circular Road mosque hosts Béchir Ben Hassen as a speaker. See image.

Kuwaiti preacher Othman Al-Khamis says (2015) that non-Muslims can be attacked and enslaved: "Those who do not want to worship Allah should be enslaved, forced to pay the jizya poll tax, convert to Islam, or fought against. .. Don't feel sorry for them. They are infidels who refuse to worship Allah."
In 2019, he says apostates must be killed: "Apostates are committing a crime, just like adulterers. .. A person who commits apostasy is killed. However, he is left [unharmed] if he repents."
Othman Al-Khamis invited to speak at South Circular Road mosque, March 2016.

Talbot St mosque, Dublin

Ian O'Doherty does a TV show, "Now It's Personal", 15 Nov 2011, meeting Ireland's Muslim community, and has some interesting encounters.
Here, Adnan Hameed of the Talbot St mosque comes across as pleasant, but then declares that people who blaspheme against his religion should be jailed, or even attacked violently.
"If you drew a cartoon of the prophet Muhammad I'd probably knock you out".
About the cartoonist living under death threat: "They should have put that guy away, not given him bloody 24 hour security. They should have put him away in prison".

Cork Dawah Centre

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.
Above, the Cork Dawah Centre "likes" Peace TV, the channel of preacher Zakir Naik, who says apostates and proselytizers should be executed.
If the Cork Dawah Centre disagrees, and condemns the sharia punishment of apostates, I'd love to hear it. Tell me here.

The Cork Dawah Centre "likes" Nouman Ali Khan, who also says apostates should be executed.

The Cork Dawah Centre "likes" Hamza Tzortzis, who has called for an Islamic state.
I could go on, but there is enough evidence there for a sceptical media (if only one existed in Ireland) to grill the Cork Dawah Centre on its "likes" and demand it say whether it agreed with sharia extremism or not.
Conclusion: Allan Cavanagh and Victoria White do not know what they are talking about.

I told Allan Cavanagh about this research that makes his meme look ignorant.
Oddly enough, he did not thank me for making him look a fool.
He responded by blocking me.

Left-wing, anti-Israel academic Gavan Titley takes a different approach.
When presented with evidence that does not fit his world view, he simply ignores it.
No reply at all. Simples!

Extremists Yusuf Chambers and Abdur Raheem Green of iERA speak at the Cork Dawah Centre in 2015.

Limerick mosque

Twitter profile (as at Aug 2017) of Khalid Ghafour, imam of Limerick Mosque, Dooradoyle Road, Limerick.
His profile picture is the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood leader Abd al-Fattah Abu Ghudda.

Dundalk Muslim Community

Dundalk Muslim Community invites extremist Abu Usamah at-Thahabi to speak in 2015.
See hate speech from this extremist.
He was filmed by Undercover Mosque (2007). He supported executing apostates and gays.
From here.

Proposed Blanchardstown mosque


Warrenstown House (then called "Courtduff"), Corduff townland, N side of Blanchardstown, Co.Dublin.
Note that "Courtduff" is a different building from "Courtduff House" to the S.
From 1887 to 1913 map.
Now the proposed site of a huge new (apparently fundamentalist) mosque.

Courtduff and Courtduff House, Blanchardstown, in Thom's Directory of Dublin county, 1894 (see p.1550).
How much better to have "Mrs. Peakin" at this address rather than an Islamic fundamentalist mosque.
Letting Islamic fundamentalism into Ireland is not progress.


Proposed Clongriffin mosque

Ireland's largest mosque is proposed for Clongriffin, Co.Dublin. The Irish media shows no interest in what kind of Islam would be preached there. The signs are this would be a Saudi Wahhabist mosque.

MCI, 23 July 2013, hosts a speaker from the Tayyibun Institute in London.
The speaker was born half-Jewish and became Muslim. Colette Colfer naively quotes the organiser and makes it sound like this is a nice example of tolerance: "The guest speaker is the son of a Jewish woman and a Pakistani man."
But Harry's Place gives the true picture about any speaker from the Tayyibun Institute. They describe the Tayyibun Institute as "an inveterate promoter of extremists ... The Tayyibun Institute promotes a nasty fringe version of Islam which imperils the multiple targets of its hatred."
The Tayyibun Institute is on the Quilliam Foundation list of Islamists under "Wahhabist influenced groups and mosques".
See full size.

MCI, June 2013, hosts a seminar from the AlMaghrib Institute.
Harry's Place describes the Al Maghrib Institute as "an extreme Wahhabi group".
The Al Maghrib Institute is on the Quilliam Foundation list of Islamists under "Wahhabist influenced groups and mosques".

Abdul Haseeb "likes" extremists Bilal Philips and Wagdy Ghoneim.

Abdul Haseeb, 29 Aug 2013, likes this deeply sinister post from hate preacher Khalid Yasin (see Harry's Place on this extremist).

Other groups and individuals

Glór Moslamach

Sinead O'Connor

Troubled singer Sinead O'Connor (born 1966), after a lifetime of religious searching, converted to Islam in 2018.
Imagine being angry with the Catholic church, and yet embracing Islam!

She announced her conversion to Islam on 19 Oct 2018.
On 31 Oct 2018 she tweeted a video by hate preacher Zakir Naik, who says apostates and proselytizers should be executed. He said this at the same event she tweeted a video from.

Zakir Naik says it is allowed to rape female slaves and women captured in warfare.
Well done, Sinead. You got angry with the Catholic church ... and ended up promoting this guy.

Actual moderates


The Shia mosque, Milltown

I had thought that the Shia mosque at Milltown was moderate, but now I am not so sure.

The Milltown mosque is against Sunni extremism but in favour of Shia extremism?
The Iranian embassy in Ireland say there was an "Al-Quds Day" event at the mosque in Apr 2024.



Irish convert Imam Ibrahim Noonan, of the Ahmadi mosque in Galway, discusses the age of Muhammad's wife Aisha.
First he denies the clear hadith that says she was age 9 when 53 year old Muhammad had sex with her.
But his version is not much better. He says she was around 12 or 13. He apparently says it is ok for a 53 year old man to have sex with a 12 year old girl if she is "mature".
See source for first and second and third tweet.

Ibrahim Noonan is apparently a 9/11 truther.

Ibrahim Noonan hates Israel, and got angry with me in March 2022 for supporting Israel.
He said Israel shot dead an innocent woman, Mai Afana, in June 2021.
I pointed out that Mai Afana was carrying out a terrorist attack.
Noonan was so angry at me pointing this out that he targeted my employer. So I had to block him.
Why do people behave like this?


Opinion polls



Challenge to Muslims in public life in Ireland

If any Muslim in public life in Ireland can answer the following challenge, tell me here.

Challenge to all "moderate" Muslims

Can you openly state that it is wrong for Islamic countries to arrest, or in any way prosecute:
  1. Apostates from Islam.
  2. Atheists.
  3. Critics of Islam.
  4. Blasphemers.
  5. Proselytisers for Christianity and other religions.

Banned in Iran: This site is banned in Iran.

Blocked on Twitter by the regressive left and Islamists: I love debate. I love ideas. But the Western left and their friends the Islamic right do not return the favour. Their response to opposing ideas, whether expressed politely or robustly, is often to block. See Who blocks me on Twitter.

I like debate. But I do have rules. See Who I block on Twitter.

Twitter is broken, 2016 to 2022: I am on Twitter at markhumphrys. Twitter was a great place for debate before 2016. You could meet everyone in the world, and argue about ideas. Starting in 2016, Twitter became increasingly broken. It became full of reporting and bans and censorship. In 2019, Twitter even started shadowbanning me for no reason that was ever explained, or could be appealed. By 2022, everyone was looking for a better place to debate.

Twitter is saved, 2022: In 2022 Elon Musk bought Twitter and started to end the censorship. It looks great so far. Twitter seems to be saved.
