Ireland taking in more Rohingya Muslims; Syrians too

Posted by Ann Corcoran on May 23, 2015

The Irish Times has published one of those touchy-feely articles about how the Rohingya, who have already arrived in Ireland, are faring.  Articles like this one are meant to ‘educate’ readers in advance of a new wave of Muslim migrants coming in from countries where warring factions are producing ‘refugees’ by the millions.

Changing Ireland! The Islamic Cultural Center of Ireland was “funded by the al-Maktoum Foundation of Dubai and has a Sunni orientation. It was officially opened in 1996 by President Mary Robinson and Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum.” http://curiousireland.ie/islamic-cultural-centre-of-ireland/

We are told that Ireland had some problems (the Times calls them “hiccups”) with Muslim teenaged boys and young men who didn’t want to stay in school, but that generally the Rohingya are doing well.  However, they aren’t happy with the modest mosque they found in their new town:

There were other problems. Assured that by the Irish authorities that Carlow had a mosque, and imagining a full minaret, the new families arrived to find just a house used by the town’s tiny Muslim population. For orthodox Sunnis who had escaped religious persecution in Burma it was a disappointment. They now worship at an apartment in the town.

Rest assured, as more arrive from throughout Asia and the Middle East, some rich country (United Arab Emirates? Saudi Arabia?) will build them a lovely mosque.  The mosque will then draw in more Muslims (take note Carlow!).

You can read the whole article here.

The Irish Times does admit this:

Some aren’t so sympathetic. This week an Irish Times poll found that 52 per cent of Irish people are against taking in fleeing Mediterranean migrants.

And, see this one from earlier in the week about the next batch of mostly Muslim refugees on the way.

But, at the end of the story published today, there is a useful summary of where Ireland stands now with the arrival of migrants (thanks to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees) as part of the ‘Invasion of Europe.’

Ireland is one of only 30 states that take part in the refugee resettlement scheme, a United Nations programme.

Since it began here, 15 years ago, 1,198 programme refugees, from 27 countries, have been resettled in Ireland.

The UN declares them refugees before they arrive in Ireland, and they do not go through the direct-provision system for asylum seekers.

Three hundred refugees are due to come to Ireland under a new EU scheme. Civil war in Syria and the large numbers of migrants trying to cross the Mediterranean in dangerous boats have made the need even more pressing.

Buddhist monks want to keep the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) out of Burma (Myanmar) as it tries to insert itself into the Rohingya controversy there. The OIC has great influence in the United Nations which is picking most of Ireland’s refugees.

In 1999, Ireland agreed to take 1,000 Kosovan refugees; they were resettled in Millstreet, Co Cork; Killarney; Waterford; and Wexford. Many later returned home.

In 2006, 180 Iranian Kurds who had been living in refugee camps in Jordan for 25 years were resettled in Carrick-on-Shannon and Dublin under a UNHCR programme.

In 2007, 100 Burmese Karen people were resettled in Ballina and Castlebar, after coming from Thailand under the UNHCR programme.

In 2008, 71 Sudanese were resettled in Kilkenny city, after transferring from Uganda, also under the UNHCR.

In 2009, 13 Burmese Rohingya families – 64 people in all – were resettled in Carlow town from Bangladesh, under the auspices of the UNHCR.

In 2013, 31 Afghans and four Iraqi Palestinians were admitted from Syria.

In 2014, 90 Syrian refugees fleeing their country’s civil war were resettled from Lebanon with relatives and friends around the country.

This year, 13 Syrian refugees of a projected 100 have arrived; 120 more people, also mainly Syrian, are due next year.

Ireland has separately agreed to admit 114 other refugees under a Syrian humanitarian admission programme.

See our entire ‘Invasion of Europe’ archive by clicking here.

Also, for more on Rohingya then you ever wanted to know, see our Rohingya category here with 176 previous posts.  There is a newly energized push to get Rohingya Muslims moved to first-world countries.

Every time I see one of these articles about the “persecuted” Rohingya without any mention of the atrocities perpetrated by the Rohingya against the Buddhist Burmese, my blood boils.  I have followed the issue in Burma and Bangladesh for years and know that the Rohingya are not pure-as-the-driven-snow and have been Islamist supremacist agitators and killed many Burmese, but that is NEVER mentioned by the likes of the Irish Times!

To my Irish friends:  See this youtube clip about this blog and how I got into all of this…..it is now over a half a million views!

      I hope someone in the Irish Immigration office has checked with the Swedes and Danes about how they’re coping with their Muslim migrants. Ireland may be happy with the recent same sex marriage poll, but the Muslims will not be happy. Give them time and they’ll change the face of Irish society, in ways that they won’t like.

        It should, with emphasis on should, be clear that the only policy that muslims want to enforce is subjugation. See ‘Londonistan’. They are 2 different creatures: 1) whining and controlling when their numbers are low and 2) cultural and religious bullies when their numbers grow high enough for them to start being comfortable. The Irish should not expect their bunch to behave any differently. That these Rohingya were persecuted by the Burmese Buddhists is pretty clear. But how do you get Buddhists, who’s track record as pacifism is almost unblemished, to get on your case? Seeing the behavior of muslims world wide, I have to give the benefit of the doubt to the Buddhists.

        I don’t pray much, but I’m praying for Ireland.

    I wonder how many of them would be amongst the 62% who voted for same sex marriage this weekend. They’ll find that officially the Muslims are not in favour of homosexuality (although many of them practise it widely). Just hope there are no very high buildings around They tend to throw sodomites from great heights according to the Koran!

    Why don’t muslim asylum seekers go to Qatar, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates , Oman, Saudi Arabia or any of the other rich muslim countries? These are Islamic countries therefore more suitable for them.

    How has any European country benefited by opening it’s borders to non-Europeans? Name one. Do they make Europe a safer place to live? Have they made Europe great? Are they good for tourism? Do they bring anything positive to Europe? Do they respect the citizens of Europe and the customs? Do they support themselves without burdening the tax payers? Do they burdan the judicial system due to high crime rates? Do they love Europe or what they can get from her?

    Do they victimize the European people in large proportions to their small numbers? Wouldn’t crimes against the European people foreshadow their true intentions? Do they trash up the areas they inhabit in Europe? If they victimize the host country’s people and trash up their land after they have been given a new start at life, wouldn’t that be like a direct “screw you”? Do they demand you to change your ways and customs so they can tolerate you? Do they respect the peoples government? Your family? Your people? Your culture?

    If they are guilty of three of these questions then It would be safe to say they should not be in Europe. There is more harm than good for Europe and her people.

    If a European country don’t let the hoards flood their land they are called “racist” and “Nazis” if they let them in, their country, their lives, their descendants lives will be torn apart. Which one is easier to live with? Which one does the most damage? Which choice is beneficial to the European country and it’s people? Wake up before it’s too late.

      The only power those destroying western civilization have over us are those words—racist, xenophobic, nativist, Islmophobic—but the vast majority of westerners are scared to death that they will be labeled as such. I say to all who wring their hands, please stop it! Who cares what they call you, western civilization is being destroyed and everyone must now pick up your weapons (verbal/political action weapons!) and go to war.

        I think people nowadays have a right to be ‘Islamophobic’. A phobia is a fear and that’s precisely what the Islamists are trying to stir up. Our young people are being spirited away because of internet evangelising from Muslim hate spirits, lured to their early death, fighting for an alien concept of a ‘caliphate’.

        I just call them ‘euphemisms’ any more. I saw what I thought was a very good post about progressivism and its lust for the death of the West. PC was born in the Ivy League and Berkeley, spawned by the ’60s and ’70s radicals who decided to destroy the system from within. They are succeeding beyond their wildest dreams. Saul Alinsky was their Messiah and Chicago is their Bethlehem. Old news I know, but amazing. Robert Bork’s ‘Slouching Toward Gomorrah’ was spot on.
        “Progs” have a strange affection for Islam. Islam is an enemy of much of what Progs hate about western civilization such as – Christianity (and now Judaism), capitalism, individualism, and constitutional limits on government. So they are fellow travelers in that regard. Of course Progs claim they are defenders of gays and women and minorities, but you notice they are willing to look the other way if it is Muslims doing the oppressing of gays and women. In fact they will actually criticize those same people and defend Muslims in those situations. It is not bizarre if you pretend to think like a Prog – in their world anything that destroys the “evil” which is western civilization is therefore good.
        In that regard Progressivism is a religion. As has been said so many times before, you do not need a god for it to be a religion, all you need is a devil. The devil is “the west”.

        From the Proclamation of Independence:
        POBLACHT NA H EIREANN
        “IRISHMEN AND IRISHWOMEN: In the name of God and of the dead generations from which she receives her old tradition of nationhood, Ireland, through us, summons her children to her flag and strikes for her freedom.”

        If there is any weakness in their, the progs’, plan, they may have shown their hand too early.

        Who could miss the irony that they have been throttled in, of all places, Russia, by Putin’s declaration yesterday.

      First, we are taking some “refugees” from Iran, but when I looked up their religions the vast majority were minorities (not Muslims), however the diversity visa lottery is a whole different legal program and they aren’t refugees. They are just anybody who puts their name in the hat, so I think the Iranians from the diversity visa may in fact pose a much greater threat to us. Frankly, it is all completely and insanely out of control!
