Commentary on Andrew Sullivan’s article,
“Religion, the motive the left refuses to see amid the carnage of Boston.”
There are several things we cannot confidently say about the motives of Tameran Tsarnaev in bombing the crowd at the finish of the Boston marathon. We do not know all the details of his psychological profile; we do not know the identity of a figure called Misha, who was apparently instrumental in Tsarnaev’s radicalisation; we do not know why he chose the marathon as his target; we do not fully know the role of his younger brother or his wife, who claims total surprise at the events. Any act as violent as his is “multi-determined”, as my shrink unhelpfully puts it. Every individual is a unique blend of DNA, experience and psychological complexity. It’s worth keeping that in mind before we reduce someone to a caricature.
We can agree with this section as in all things there are many factors in a decision and the course of action taken.
But we do know this: Tsarnaev was a fanatical, extremist Muslim – and his brother has testified that “defending Islam” was the motive. Tsarnaev’s YouTube page is crammed with Islamist conspiracy theories, apocalyptic myths and violent Islamist imagery. He disrupted his own mosque’s services by ranting that it was wrong to honour Martin Luther King Jr because he wasn’t a Muslim.

Dialogue Ireland will be giving an update on the developments in regard to this project. Our adviser has been researching the background to those who are apparently funding this project. We would see the development of this mosque being the result of the Arab Spring and the changing power dynamics in the region. The Clonskeagh mosque is now firmly in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Maktoums no longer see the need to pay insurance in Ireland to maintain safety at home. Also they do not represent the strict Salifist trend in Islam, but rather horse riding and power in the UAE.
It is very isolated whereas at least Clonskeagh was in a very developed area and had UCD nearby. One has the feeling there are going to be a number of private buses coming from all over Ireland to feed the numbers to make this more than another Celtic Tiger building project?
Also the problem for those who wish to maintain control over their youth is that between Primary and Third level there is a major problem for those with an Islamist agenda. A lot of the Muslim youth become integrated at second level. The Saudis soon after they opened an Embassy suggested they would like to see a secondary school here.
This new project opens up the possibility of a seamless move to third level where groups like Fosis can recruit them into a more clearly Islamist direction.
There have been a number of reports of third level students who have fought and died in Syria.
Already the move to Clonskeagh from the South Circular Road did not create a living community in the area around the mosque. Rather Clongriffin represents an even more remote area where a kind of parallel society might emerge. There is a danger that this represents a kind of Nama society, more about selling an idea for profit than having living people in a community connected to it. (more…)

The Emir of Qatar, who has long cultivated an image as a pro-Western reformist, has vowed to “spare no effort” to spread Wahhabi Islam throughout Europe. Wahhabism — which not only discourages Muslim integration in the West but actively encourages jihad against non-Muslims — threatens to radicalize Muslim immigrants in Ireland. (more…)

Becoming a Muslim Brotherhood is a long, intricate and intensive procedure which often involves subterfuge. Prospective candidates at universities are chosen without their knowledge and groomed within the context of non-political social activities while children of MB members are targeted as early as 9 years of age. This recruitment process only culminates in full membership after 5 to 8 years. (more…)
