Two NUIG students died fighting for Islamic state after becoming radicalised while living in Galway

It has been revealed by the Sunday Times that two medical students from National University of Ireland Galway, have been killed while fighting for the Islamic State in Syria

Mustapha al-Hayani, was a graduate of NUI Galway’s medical programme, while Tariq Mohainuteen, a visiting Malaysian medical student. Both men were members of the University’s Muslim Youth Society and held official positions in the organisation.

Both al-Hayani and Mohainuteen are believed to have been radicalised during their time in Galway and in 2013 they travelled to Turkey before crossing the border into Syria and joining I.S.

However, within weeks the two simpleton jihadists would be dead, killed in fighting with rival Muslim terrorist group, Jabhat al-Nusra, a former Al-Qaeda affiliate.

Numerous Irish citizens and residents have left Ireland to fight for the genocidal Muslim terrorist group, I.S, in recent years, including former member of the Defence Forces Lisa Smith and Leo Varadkar’s Fine Gael government has said they will be welcome back regardless of their crimes.

Ireland is also seen as a soft touch by Islamists who use the country as a base to recruit, raise funds, lay low and recuperate as well as plan terrorist atrocities abroad.

The London Bridge attackers of June 2017 are thought to have planned their atrocity while in Ireland and to have considered a similar attack in Dublin.

Also, according to US diplomatic cables revealed by Wikileaks Ireland’s flagship Mosque and Islamic cultural centre at Clonskeagh is a hotbed of radical thought with a 2006 cable saying that the centre “is influenced by Wahhabism with a close link to the ultraconservative Deobandi school of Islam (espoused by the Taliban).”

Another US diplomatic cable from 2009 claims that “members of the Clonskeagh mosque celebrated the kidnapping of Irish aid worker Margaret Hassan by Iraqi jihadis in 2004. (She was then murdered by the jihadis.)”

All of these revelations are leading members of the public to ask why the government and security services in Ireland are so lax when it comes to stamping out radical Islam.
