Irish 'Muslim' arrested

Post by Kitkat on Sat 14 May 2011, 13:22



I find this news article rather disturbing (and not just for the obvious reasons).

Police in Ireland have arrested a Muslim convert after he apparently made death threats against US President Barack Obama.

Khalid Kelly - who is also known as 'Taliban Terry' because of his pre-conversion name - was arrested at his Dublin home on Thursday.

The 44-year-old was quoted as telling a British newspaper he expected al Qaeda to kill Mr Obama during a visit to Ireland on May 23.

He could be held for up to three days before being charged or released.

Kelly's arrest came four days after an interview with him appeared in the Sunday Mirror.

"Personally I would feel happy if Obama was killed," he was quoted as saying.

"How could I not feel happy when a big enemy of Islam is gone?"

Mr Obama is due to spend the day in Dublin and the village of Moneygall, where his great-great-great-grandfather came from.

The Queen arrives in Ireland on Tuesday for a four-day visit. The joint planned security operation is said to involve 10,000 police and troops.

Kelly, a former Catholic altar boy, converted to Islam while imprisoned in Saudi Arabia in 2000 for selling illegal alcohol.

He has said he would like to see strict Sharia law introduced in Ireland, with public beheadings of drug dealers on Dublin's main road, O'Connell Street.

The internet is such a dangerous place. That is an awful tale, kk. I wonder where it will all end. It puzzles me somewhat why so many Islamists turn to terrorism. I don't think there's a Christian faction which has done that, is there?

Oh, I think that 'Christians' can take their fair share of involvement in 'terrorist' activities in various guises.

You've only got to look at the history of the Christian Brothers in Ireland ... for a start.

This article pretty much sums them up.

Once, the Christian Brothers wielded extraordinary power – not only over the lives of the hundreds, if not thousands, of children they abused, but over Ireland itself. Today there are only 250 people left in the Irish order, with an average age of 74 – but its legacy still looms large

I've read it all over breakfast. It made me feel physically sick. Must get on with my chores and think about something nice.
