Consultation process criticised.
Another year starts and fire once again damages a hotel destined to become a direct provision centre in a rural Irish village. This time it is in Rooskey, Co Leitrim, where arson is the suspected cause of a blaze in the Shannon Key West Hotel on Thursday the 10th of January. Up to 80 asylum seekers were to be accommodated there, it was first announced early last November.
Another designated centre in Moville, Co Donegal, was seriously damaged in a deliberate arson attack in late November, before the expected arrival of approximately 100 asylum seekers.
As in Moville, locals in Rooskey are shocked and quick to express their condemnation of what has happened. Spokesmen have said that this is “not what Rooskey is about”. Fianna Fáil TD Eugene Murphy said:
“If, in fact, it proves to be the case that the fire was started deliberately then I would condemn such action out of hand. It is not representative of the Rooskey area and people are outraged.”
However, he also pointed out that the whole system of direct provision as it has been enacted in Ireland is flawed and he criticised the “extremely poor process of consultation and engagement with the community in Rooskey.”
Pushing asylum seekers into small towns not working.
Indeed, the treatment of the people of Rooskey is merely synonymous with how people have already been treated elsewhere. Deputy Murphy went on:
“The Government’s approach of pushing refugees and asylum seekers into small towns around rural Ireland is simply not working – many of these small rural towns are already on their knees and the necessary infrastructure from a transport, educational and health aspect are just not in place and the Government needs to take responsibility for the lack of judgement in relation to this whole approach.”
It is refreshing to see a politician point the finger at the Government and its shambolic policies regarding immigration in this country.
Slurs of racism have been thrown around. But it is far more complicated than that. What those who object to the mushrooming of random direct provision centres all over the country are actually objecting to is not the colour of the skin of the people who are being placed in them. This should be, and probably is, perfectly clear to the so-called anti-racism groups rushing to shout ‘Nazi’ at anyone who lifts their voice against the sacred cow of immigration.
Reasons for being less than enamoured by immigrants range from awareness of the simple lack of facilities these small rural areas have to cope with the abrupt arrival in their midst of people from different countries, cultures, values and experiences (whilst struggling to provide for themselves) to a completely legitimate fear of the unknown quantity.
Government airbrush the crisis.
In 2017 former Garda John Wilson spoke in sober tones to warn us of what immigration has done and is doing to Ireland.
“The refugee crisis and the immigration crisis I think [are] two of the most important issues which have ever come up for discussion in this country, but unfortunately our political leaders, or so-called political establishment, have airbrushed these issues.”
He said that for over fourteen years Ireland has been “a dumping ground” for Eastern European criminals and other criminals who see Ireland as “an easy touch”. He compared us unfavourably to Australia which has strict border controls and said:
“Yet in Ireland we must accept everybody. We must accept every kind of scrounger. We must accept every criminal, every murderer, every robber, every rapist and by the way that’s not an exaggeration, there are some very, very evil people have travelled and come in to this country over the last number of years.”
There is a growing concern among many Irish people who recognise the increase in criminality which immigration has brought. John Wilson went on:
“Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael – they won’t discuss it – they have consistently side-stepped the issue. So have the Labour Party. Sinn Féin and the more left-wing parties, they would open our doors. They have no problem with the open borders. They would let anyone into the country.”
This is an alarming truth especially as we are in the run up to local and European elections. We can only guess who is in the traps ready for the off.
“An Garda Siochána,” Wilson said, “do not have a grasp of what’s happening in the Lithuanian community, they don’t have a grasp of what’s happening in the Polish community, let alone the Islamic community. If it turns out that some of these individuals have been radicalised and get involved in extremist activity in Ireland, there’s very little that can be done to remove them from the country.”
It is hard to fathom that left-wing groups who quite self-righteously refer to themselves as anti-racist are willing to sacrifice the security of their own people, their children and their grandchildren for the sake of appearances. As John Wilson says, “for such a so-called educated people we are very, very stupid and very, very dumb in this area.”
Native Irish could be a minority by 2050.
Leaving criminality aside, there have been projections made that, thanks to immigration, the native Irish will be a minority in our own country by 2050. It is startling that our government ministers are apparently leading us to the edge of the cliff using PR and spin to keep us lulled. Consider a recent tweet from Tánaiste Simon Coveney re-posting a video of boys from 22 different nationalities from one CBS school, all celebrating the ominously titled government project ‘Global Ireland’. This, just like Ireland 2040, is supposed to be a wonderful source of pride. Oh, and on the same day, Mr. Coveney tweeted a photograph of himself taken with members of Love Equality Northern Ireland – who are campaigning for same-sex marriage in the Six Counties – with the cheery comment “Congratulations on the great work you are doing!” It’s very bleak.
How many are radicalised in Ireland?
In other exciting news a man called Alexandr Ruzmatovich Bekimirzaev, who had received Irish citizenship, was arrested fighting for the Islamic State in Syria. He had spent thirteen years in Ireland and – surprise, surprise – was allegedly radicalised in Ireland as well. The fact that he joined Islamic State is bad enough but that he may have been radicalised here is damning. Many people have tried to draw our attention to the problem of Islamist preachers being invited to speak at mosques here. Naturally if radical preachers are being invited here then the people they are preaching to are quite likely being radicalised. Just one radicalised Muslim can do a lot of damage. How many more are likely to have been radicalised here?
Islamism practices strategic deception.
One of the oldest and best-known mosques in Ireland, the Clonskeagh Mosque – whose imam is the father of Ibrahim Halawa – is widely held to be associated with the Muslim Brotherhood. Leo Varadkar appeared in a video at the Clonskeagh Mosque speaking of his conviction that Ireland was a “much better place” due to the presence of the Muslim community. This mosque is where the European Council for Fatwa and Research is located, the president of which is Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the ideological head of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood is the driving force behind hundreds of organisations throughout the world promoting the goal of a worldwide Islamic caliphate. The leaders of al-Qaeda, Islamic State, Boko Haram and many other terror groups were in the past affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood. It fosters radical Islamism.
Jordanian academic Rami Dabbas writes:
“The group [Muslim Brotherhood] practices a strategic deception: it is allied with liberal movements to get into power. It exploits their support, as we see in many countries of Europe, as well as in Canada and during the Obama era in the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood uses taqiyya [deception] and claims it is in favour of democracy, peace, human rights and the peaceful transfer of power, which all are lies. The Brotherhood does not believe in the secular state. It seeks to remove it. It is planning to establish Islamic governments.”
While groups like al-Qaeda espouse violence the Brotherhood utilises taqiyya to, as Dabbas writes, “infiltrate Western governments and replace their constitutions with the Quar’an and Sharia.”
Islam will come back to Europe…
The Brotherhood gets millions of dollars to fund its operations from many different sources, including George Soros, and one of its aims is to fight “Islamophobia”. It would seem like simply an upstanding Muslim support network. But, as Rami Dabbas writes:
“Today, the Muslim Brotherhood has the most extensive network of completely legal organisations in the Old World [Africa, Asia and Europe], while they retain the closest of ties with the Salafis and jihadists, which makes them even more dangerous than the militant radicals.”
As we can see with the creeping Islamisation of Europe being brought about by immigration these words of Yusuf al-Qaradawi in 1995 should be borne in mind:
“Islam will come back to Europe for the third time, after it was expelled from it twice… Conquest through Da’wa [proselytising] that is what we hope for. We will conquer Europe, we will conquer America! Not through sword but through Da’wa.”
Consider also what Scripture says:
“He will grow arrogant of heart
and destroy many people
by taking them unawares.”
While our political leaders and the entire mainstream media collaborate to keep us unawares, it remains to be seen if they will succeed for much longer.
