    Fine Gael Councillor " "Sharia Law is operating in Ireland "............Is he right?

    Fine Gael Councillor Brian Murphy recently sent a tweet saying "Sharia Law is operating in Ireland and most of the political class either do not know or do not care. It is a subversion of our legal system".


    He also said in another tweet.........."The Irish military should not be being forced to act as a ferry service for smugglers and illegal economic migrants in the Mediterranean,".

    Councillor Murphy has come under fire from many quarters for these and other comments and Leo Varadkar had to issue a statement saying... "I want to disassociate myself and the party from those messages from Cllr Brian Murphy. They do not represent the policies views or values of the Fine Gael party."

    The question is, are his views on this issue widespread in Fine Gael?

    On the Sharia Law issue, its a very strange comment from Leo. If anyone is abiding by Sharia law and if the actions are contrary, or breaking Irish laws, then the culprits should be brought to task and the full rigors of the laws of this land leveled at their feet.

    As regards the ferry service, the Councilor has a point. In many peoples views, including mine, the actions of our navy are encouraging smuggling. A different approach is needed. Sadly however, I don't know what that could be. Its a difficult one.

    Sharia Law is officially operating in Ireland in connection with certain banking transactions and middle eastern countries.

    Already another thread on it but I'm surprised at you FF missing the opportunity to stick the boot into FG for bullying one of their own Councillors.

    There are doubtless some Muslim communities in the country where Sharia Law is operating.

    I agree with the OP Fine Gael Councillor Brian Murphy. It should not be allowed and IS a subversion of our legal system!

    We've had Canon Law operating in this country for decades . This also should not be allowed as it is a subversion of our legal system

    Fine Gael hits out at 'unacceptable' anti-Muslim comments by Dublin councillor - Dublin Live

    "A Fine Gael councillor has sparked fury on social media after making a number of anti-Muslim posts in which he said that the religion was doing "irreversible damage" to Europe.

    Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown councillor Brian Murphy provoked outrage on Twitter when he wrote a series of tweets claiming Sharia Law is operating in Ireland and that Muslims posed a "very real" threat here.


    He also accused the media and political establishment of being "cowards" and called for armed police to be installed outside Leinster House to protect Ireland's top politicians"

    Well at least we know where his priorities lie - protect the elite and let everybody else fend for themselves.

    I just raised the issue, where it goes is anybodies guess. My issues are not with internal FG problems but with what he said.

    What a gormless comment, armed units outside Leinster House will only protect them there for the duration of their stay there, so about 10% of their time.
