People Before Profit

People Before Profit (PBP) and the linked groups the Irish "Anti-War" Movement (IAWM) and the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) are probably the main supporters of the global jihad in Ireland, more than any Islamic group.

Like many Marxists, they think jihadists are part of the "resistance" to the Western order, and so jihad will somehow help "liberate" the world.


Richard Boyd Barrett (PBP) and an anti-Israel mob chant outside the Israeli Embassy, Dublin, 8 June 2010.
How pathetic to support totalitarians against a democracy.

Myself and Carlow "People Before Profit" exchange, ahem, different views about the merits of Richard Boyd Barrett.

Richard Boyd Barrett (PBP) reads out Iranian fake quote in the Dail, 9 June 2015.
Boyd Barrett says: "This is the Defence Minister, Moshe Ya'alon, talking just a couple of weeks ago: "Israel is going to hurt Lebanese civilians to include kids of the family. We went through a very long discussion. We did it then. We did it in the Gaza Strip. We are going to do it in any round of hostilities in the future.""
In reality, this is an Iranian fake quote.

Support for jihad against Israel:
Gino Kenny, People Before Profit TD, says in May 2021: "Palestinians have every right to resist the occupation. This is nothing new. ... Palestinian resistance is very legitimate."


John Lyons

Councillor John Lyons of PBP is an appalling extremist.
He praises the democidal Soviet Union. And he claims the democracy of Israel is a "genocidal state".


John Lyons, 10 Oct 2015, openly supports Palestinian terror attacks against Israel: "Socialists fully support the right of the oppressed to defend themselves and to fight back."

John Lyons claims that Israel is a "genocidal state".

The world's slowest genocide.
From here.

John Lyons, 6 Feb 2017, praises the democidal Soviet Union, which killed 4 million people in 1917-24.

A comical tweet by John Lyons, 21 June 2018.
In the Gaza border riots, jihadis are sending bombs by balloon into Israel. They have messages like "I love you" to appeal to children, in the hope that children pick them up and get killed. And this idiot thinks they are really messages of love!
He was so embarrassed by the feedback that he deleted the tweet. But he will carry on attacking Israel from his position of ignorance.

Hugh Lewis

Councillor Hugh Lewis (PBP) commends Hamas for "resisting imperialism".
From Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council meeting, 11 Oct 2010.

Hugh Lewis was on the Irish ship of useful idiots and jihad supporters in the Gaza Flotilla II in June-July 2011.

Conor Reddy


Conor Reddy of PBP promoting jihad terrorism, Sept 2021.
He posted this celebration after 6 Palestinian prisoners escaped from an Israeli jail.
5 of the 6 are Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
The other is an Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades leader responsible for suicide bombings of Jews.
This is what PBP stands for.
Conor Reddy blocked me as soon as I posted this.

Conor Reddy is open about his support for jihad terrorism.
With reference to actual jihad terrorists, he says: "Those who resist are right to, more power to them."
This is a follow-on to the above post. He is actually talking about Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades.

  1. He claims to be "anti-racist".
  2. He applauds racist terrorists that target random Jews.


Sami El-Sayed

Sami El-Sayed is a young PBP activist.
He says he is "an atheist of a Muslim background".
He has found a home in PBP, the most pro-Islamist and pro-jihadist group in Ireland.
Can you explain how that works? I cannot.


Sami El-Sayed says Israel has no right to exist, Oct 2018.
From here.

His hatred of Israel was noticed in this article.
He responds, Feb 2019, and says yes, he thinks Israel has no right to exist.

Sami El-Sayed calls me "scummy human garbage", May 2018.
He is angry because I said that: "Gazans should abandon 'the struggle' and pursue money, family and life."
What is wrong with the Marxist brain that saying that makes them call you "scummy human garbage"?

Sami El-Sayed calls me a "proven liar", Oct 2017.
"Proven" inside his addled Marxist brain.
I blocked him because of this kind of behaviour.
"cllrmobrien" is now former Councillor Michael O'Brien.

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 will debate almost anyone. Stick to ideas and I will debate you. 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.
