Opinion: Ibrahim Halawa, members of the Muslim Brotherhood or its sympathisers have no place in Ireland-Egyptian embassy contacted for statement regarding email campaign

This week the majority of media outlets in Ireland have been lamenting the plight of Ibrahim Halawa. Bizarrely, the mainstream media outlets in Ireland, run primarily by snobbish, ultra-liberal secularists have taken up the cause of a young man who went to Egypt to protest in solidarity with the ousted Egyptian President and Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi.

Morsi was overthrown by General Abdel Al-Sissi after along with fellow Islamists in the Constitutional Assembly, he quickly drafted a new constitution that would be heavily influenced by Islamic religious teaching. After all the motto of the Muslim Brotherhood since its inception remains:
“God is our objective. The Prophet is our leader. The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of God is our highest hope. God is greater!”

Halawa, a young man heavily influenced by his father Sheikh Hussein Halawa, who has only in the last few months been criticised by another Muslim cleric in Ireland, Sheikh Umar Al-Qadri, for not doing enough to discourage Islamic radicals. Sheikh Halawa is Imam of Ireland’s largest Mosque in Clonskeagh, Dublin.

Ibrahim Halawa went to Egypt to join in solidarity with Muslim Brotherhood protesters, many of whom would view Ireland as an example of an immoral, infidel state.

It’s hard to comprehend why the Irish media and government dedicated so much time and effort lobbying the Egyptian government to interfere in its legal process to free this man. Most major media outlets mourn his imprisonment, ignoring public opinion, while Children’s Minister Katherine Zappone has made it a personal crusade to bring this adult Muslim Brotherhood sympathiser back to Ireland. Leo Varadkar has also said his return is a priority but the homeless and disabled children in Ireland are seemingly not as high a priority in the government’s eyes.

One might ask why The Taoiseach and Zappone, along with the media shows such a soft spot for adherents to an ideology that would see them stripped of their rights or worse.

One might also question how The Taoiseach and Zappone, both of whom are openly gay, feel about how the Muslim Brotherhood treat homosexual people in the Middle East.

There’s been so much outcry for Halawa but what about the outcry for the Christian children in the Middle East who were butchered in front of their parents by the Muslim Brotherhood?

This political correct madness needs to stop, Halawa made his bed, now let him sleep in it.

 

Addendum: The Liberal.ie has reached out to the Egyptian embassy for comment in relation to reports the consulate has been inundated with emails from the Irish public supporting the detention of Ibrahim Halawa.

They are yet to issue a statement.
