    Ha ha
    Just read the article

    It was Mc Guinness's brother Eugene who was stirring it all
    In fairness, Eugene is a far bigger clown than his older sibling
    Not the brightest spark, the Fredo of the family, and seems to revel in goading his brother

    Im not concerned with someone practicing religion peacefully. But equality has to be a reciprocal thing. A lot of mosques built in the UK were built with Saudi money, which was the genesis of the radicalisation in the UK. There was a plan by the Saudis to buil a super mosque in Dublin but I dont know if its still happening.

    If we had the same problem in Christianity with nutty preachers urging bombings I would equally support compulsory registration of preachers and Churches. We don't have that problem now.
    So we should behave like Saudi Arabia?

    I see.

    Who is funding the mosque? We need to make sure its not the Saudis because allowing them to do so in the UK has been an unmitigated disaster.

    And even if the Saudis have nothing to do with this mosque, I stand over my proposal for registration of mosques so that An Garda Siochana can verify that radicals are not preaching there as in the UK and sometimes even here.

    In the long term, moderate Muslims will welcome such proposals to protect them and us from the lunatics.

    In fact, many Muslims will be comfortable with state regulation, as Islam in Muslim countries is often regulated by the State anyway.

    Hate speech is literally illegal in this country.

    Yes but P.ie's finest operate a quasi derogation to allow it, if aimed at Blacks, Jews, Muslims, Roma and Travellers.

    I'm sure there will be a warm welcome for a mosque elsewhere, Waterford would be a more logical location.

    I think the people are finally standing up to the PC brigade. (at least in Kilkenny).

    Only in your own mind.
    People may have concerns about Islam for a variety of different reasons, some of them perfectly valid. Did the Nazis have any valid reasons for fearing the Jews?
    If the Jews were convenient bogeymen for the Nazis, then people with concerns about immigration are convenient bogeymen to yourself. Anyone who disagrees with you is a potential Nazi. See the parallels?
