Leo Varadkar - "Muslim community growing and Ireland much better place"
Leo Varadkar visiting the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland says Ireland is a "much better place" as a result of a growing muslim community .   
      

I'm really happy to be here today in the Islamic Cultural centre of Ireland to celebrate Eid al-Fitr with the muslim community in Ireland .

As you know the muslim community in Ireland is growing and Ireland is a much better place I believe for Diversity

- Leo Varadkar  

 
  

The Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland (ICCI) is Ireland's largest Islamic Centre based in Clonskeagh Dublin . In 1992 , Sheikh Hamdan Ben Rashid al-Maktoum, the Deputy Governor of Dubai and Minister for Finance in the United Arab Emirates personally financed the purchase of  the land for the construction of the centre which includes a national school . 

It was opened
 in 1996 by President Mary Robinson and Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum himself .

Head of the ICCI is Imam Hussein Mohammed Halawa , the father of Ibrahim Halawa (to the left of  Leo Varadkar in the video) . 

In 2009 , A confidential US diplomatic Cable published on the wikileaks.org website stated that in 2004 , members of the Centre celebrated after Irish Aid Worker Margaret Hassan was abducted in Iraq and later murdered by Islamic extremists . She was 59 years old . Margaret was involved in bringing leukaemia medicine to child cancer victims and was well known and liked in many of Baghdad's slums and other cities in Iraq .

The cable also reveals how children at the centres muslim school had to take a day off school after a senior Al Qaeda leader - Al-Zarqaw was killed in Iraq and were visibly upset at his passing .

Link to cable 


 
The Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland is also the Headquarters of the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR) of which Mr Halawa is general secretary . 


The president of the ECFR is Egyptian Cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi. 

Al-Qaradawi has spoken in support of suicide bombings in Israel and has also praised Hitler for what he did to the Jews . 
 
Speaking in support of suicide bombings in Israeli , al-Qaradawi told BBC Newsnight in 2005 that: 
 

I consider this type of martyrdom operation as an indication of the justice of Allah Almighty. Allah is just - through his infinite wisdom he has given the weak what the strong do not possess and that is the ability to turn their bodies into bombs like the Palestinians do. 

- Sheik Yousuf Al-Qaradawi , president of the ECFR based in Clonskeagh 


In January 2009 , in a programme aired on Al-Jazeera TV , Al-Qaradawi praised Hitler for what he did to the Jews :
 

Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon them people who would punish them for their corruption.

The last punishment was carried out by Hitler.

By means of all the things he did to them – even though they exaggerated this issue – he managed to put them in their place.

This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers 

the only thing I hope for is that as my life approaches its end , allah will give  me an opportunity to go to the land of Jihad and resistance , even if in a wheelchair , I will shoot Allah's enemies the Jews  

- Sheik Yousuf Al-Qaradawi , president of the ECFR based in Clonskeagh  

 
  
  
In a programme aired on Qatar TV on July 2007 , Al-Qaradawi said that Islam will conquer Europe without resorting to the sword or fighting : 
 

The conquest of Rome – the conquest of Italy, and Europe – means that Islam will return to Europe once again.

Must this conquest necessarily be though war? No. There is such a thing as peaceful conquest...

The peaceful conquest has foundations in this religion, and therefore, I expect that Islam will conquer Europe without resorting to the sword or fighting. It will do so by means of da'wa and ideology. Europe is miserable with materialism, with the philosophy of promiscuity, and with the immoral considerations that rule the world – considerations of self-interest and self-indulgence. It is high time Europe woke up and found a way out from this. Europe will find no life saver or life boat other than Islam. Islam will save Europe from the raging materialism from which it suffers 

- Sheik Yousuf Al-Qaradawi , president of the ECFR based in Clonskeagh

I tried to respond to an article in Irish Central (US),Leo was complaining about being a victim of abuse and racism in Ireland.I submitted a detailed coverage of Foreign Nationals,all its impacts on homelessness,direct provision,health,school,jobs,crime,mosques,Islam,and the plantation of Ireland,people replacement,2040 plan,media control,gay marriage,abortion,euthanasia,free speech,all achieved in less than 2 decades by an unelected Polly. I also referred to negative and bias remarks he made comparing Irish Citizens/Foreign Nationals,in favor of latter.They would not publish so the Free Speech Ban has crossed the Atlantic and they only want Leo's false news.....well folks....the clock is t.i.c.k.i.n.g

here's what will happen to lisa smith . She'll be given a Big House courtesy of the irish tax payer , given all the welfare payments , medical card , free schooling , education courses and make a fortune from telling her story to the media . Meanwhile , this is a woman who knowingly joined a horrific regime . was pictured posing with rifle and most likely saw the horrific things her comrades in arms where doing to ordinary people .

Now she's out on bail for her little christmas rest .
^
Leo the Looney has no respect for Ireland,it's People,it's culture,it's history or certainly its religion.The self confessed openly gay blow in,is representing Ireland on the world stage,No Shame,a Disgrace.He wants an Islamic Ireland and Europe to keep the "Status Quo " in place for unelected cronies like himself and EU ELITE.The Koran has been researched globally by the best in the world/so too the Bible.The overall opinion is that the Koran does not stack up to scrutiny whereas the Bible does. Quote " all infidels " all non Muslim,non Islamic, to be " KILLED " unless converted. Why has Governments allowed this in any Christian Society. A SELL OUT . Leo and Like may think they can use these CHRISTIAN KILLERS to subject a Sovereign People but when and if they feel they have enough power they will eliminate LEO CRONES also....sicko....sicko....dogshit
^
look at the seriousness on that man's face , that guy is here on a mission , now look at varadkar acting the clown and joking about .
^
if Al-Qaradawi's dream of conquering Rome does come true , Rome will have nobody to blame but themselves for facilitating mass migration .
^
I see varadkar has agreed to take ISIS fighters with Irish Citizenship back into Ireland , these are people who committed the most gruesome and vile acts against other human beings , many innocent civilians . shame on him. A whitepaper produced by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem shows that Ireland has the second highest number of ISIS fighters in the world relative to the size of its muslim population . You would think we would be trying to do something about this but No , instead we are inviting them back to pass on their skills to others
^
Simple question to Mr Varadkar .

Please Explain with examples how it is better ?

I bet he cant do it .
^
sure Ali Selim , the spokesman for the ICCI refused to condemn Osama bin Laden .

The ICCI and the Dublin Mosque have often hosted jihadist preachers such as Wajdi Ghunaim who said in relation to suicide bombings:

“Those young people who explode themselves to kill the Jews are not committing suicide, but jihad.”
^
.. he talks about the peaceful conquest of europe without the use of the sword

which is happening

eurostat figures show that migrants from islamic countries such as syria , iraq , afghanistan , pakistan make up the bulk of migrants now entering the european union

so you know, this is not some conspiracy theory , this is reality
^
Perhaps it's time for Ireland to stop helping USA to bomb the home countries of the immigrant people. There countries are no longer safe for them. Ireland supports their attack by allowing US airplanes to refuel at shannon for the bombing missions
^
hi cathy , two wrongs dont make a right .

firstly , Im not going to excuse the USA's illegal wars , I mean when Obama was president he dropped 25000 bombs a year in his illegal WARS . completely wrong and ujustified . it was revenge rather than defence.

Having said that, it was Islamic Extremism that started the whole thing in the first place .

It would be a very foolish person that turns a blind eye to any form of extremism.

i have spoken with muslims in Ireland who said they have come accross other muslims in Ireland who they believe are members of radical groups and are actually afraid of them

There is no excuse for any form of extremism , whether its chopping heads off , blowing up innocent civilians or advocating for others do these things its WRONG and we need to say STOP before its gets out of hand
^
The government should tell the ECFR to move their headquarters somewhere else , that kind of thing is not welcome in Ireland

we either live in a mature society or we dont . if a mature adult wants to try conversion therapy its their business . nothing to do with anyone else

transgender therapy is much more damaging than conversion therapy . with trans therapy you have bodily mutilation , irreversible medication to stop the natural development of the body and serious side effects from drugs such as puberty blockers . why dont they ban transgender therapy .

so it will be legal for children to have double mastectomy to change gender but illegal for therapy to discourage this . transgender therapy is barbaric and yet this is perfectly ok by our government and anyone offering therapy to help children keep their existing gender is to be outlawed What has happened to ireland .
