Dublin to Deir Ezzor

The photo above shows Fr Joseph Bali conducting a February 2018 service in Deir Ezzor which the heroes of the Syrian Arab Army recently liberated. The racist, sectarian graphic, which would be more at home in Nazi Germany, was included in a recent article, discussed below,  which quotes Ivana Bacik, an Irish Senator for the ward of Trinity College, her alma mater, where she holds a Professorship won by an internal examination. She has described these priests and prelates as Assadist apologists and has used that unsubstantiated charge to repeat the ignorant display she put on in front of the Russian Ambassador. Ms Bacik has refused on Irish national radio to go to Syria to educate herself about what is happening there.

Recent events in Dublin were a major success not least because Ireland for ISIS and their apologists failed to show up. More of that anon.

Syrian Arab Republic: Bring Back Their Kidnapped Girls: Wednesday 31 January 2018, Georgian Suite, Buswell’s 12-1pm

Thousands of Yezidi, Shia, Christian, Druze. Alawi and other children have been kidnapped as part of the sectarian wars being waged against the peoples of Syria. Many of these children have been dragooned into being rebel cannon fodder and many more have been sent into Turkey’s back-street chopping shops to be organ harvested. Some have been returned on foot of heavy ransom payments. This meeting uses two of the most egregious attacks on Syrian children as templates for all child victims of NATO’s war without mercy on the women and children of Yemen, Syria, Nigeria, Iraq, Palestine and Libya.

Deputies Clare Daly and Mick Wallace spoke in the 5 December Oireachtas Debate how they had visited the two schools that the rebels suicide bombed because they were secular, multi-cultural beacons of light and how they had met scores of survivors from the largely Shia villages of Foua and Kafraya, whose bus convoy was bombed, with over 100 fatalities and over 50 children kidnapped in the full glare of the world’s media. Most of those children are still missing. Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney was so moved that he departed from his prepared script justifying Ireland’s complicity in war crimes in Syria and said that the Irish government would help secure the release of those children. Though the humanitarian motions of Deputies Daly and Wallace were supported, with amendments, by a large number of Deputies, Labour voted NATO’s way. This meeting is our attempt to hold Minister Coveney to his promise.

Choctaw Nation: George Galloway on Ireland, Yemen, Palestine and Syria

America’s Choctaw Indians famously sent $170 to help the Irish during the 1847 “Famine”.  The Choctaw should demand their money back. Today, the Irish government are fully behind NATO sanctions on Syria and cannot even condemn the slaughter and kidnapping of children as young as three. They are fully behind the slaughter in Yemen and Syria and try to weasel out of the moral culpability by look over there shouts about “Assad”, “Iran”, “Hezbollah”, “Russia” or whatever else emanates from the brain boxes at the Pentagon.  Ireland is as culpable in 2018 as Trevelyan was in 1848.

Ireland’s doors remain as tightly shut in 2018 as the doors of Killarney, Kilkenny Dublin and Galway were when the dying stumbled into them in 1848. The refugee  policy, of allowing the favoured and connected few in while tightening the screws on the millions left behind, plays into NATO’s ethnic cleansing policy, which as turned large swathes of Yemen, Iraq, Libya, Nigeria and Syria into Dante’s lower layers of hell.

The schedule for January 31 with George Galloway is spelt out below in earlier posts: 12 noon-1pm in the Georgian Suite Buswells, 5pm at the Talbot Street memorial, 5.30 pm at the GPO to sing Happy Birthday to Ahed Tamimi, the young Palestinian woman the conscience of the world hides behind. It is not much. But it is a start.

Slaughtering Syria’s Shia Children: Download Powerpoints


Above and below are PDFs of two Powerpoint talks prominent Syrian doctors give in Buswell’s Hotel Dublin at 12 pm 31 January, with Mr George Galloway chairing. The original files, as well as some supporting ones, may be downloaded at The talks and Powerpoints are on two of the most sickening war crimes committed in the course of the war on Syria. The speakers are prominent medics, one a cardiologist and the other  a surgeon. More to the point, they are relatives and neighbours of these kidnapped and slaughtered children.

There are a number of minor mistakes in these Powerpoints. It was, for example, not Deputy Coveney but Deputy Mick Wallace, who visited the two schools that were suicide bombed in Homs and who met the relatives of the slaughtered and kidnapped of Foua/Kafraya.

The results of the December 2017 votes in the Irish Parliament on death by sanctions may be seen here. The vote on the emasculating amendment, which specifically asked for the kidnapping of the children of Foua and Kafraya to be condemned, can be seen here.  Most deputies cannot even condemn slaughtering children and kidnapping the survivors.

Turkey’s Organ-Harvesting Chop-Shops: Dublin 31 January

​​ Mr Simon Coveney, TD
Minister for Foreign Affairs
25 Eanair 2018

Dear Minister Coveney
Because you promised to help rescue the 54 Syrian Shia children the White Helmets kidnapped, following their 15 April 2017 suicide bomb attack on their bus convoy evacuating Foua/Kafraya, we have a Wednesday 31 January Georgian Suite Buswell’s Hotel 12 noon-1pm meeting which Mr George Galloway, the broadcaster and former MP, will chair and which will be addressed by prominent Syrian surgeons from the besieged villages of Foua/Kafraya.
Evidence now indicates that these children, together with thousands of Yezidi and Alawi from Latakia, Idlib and Hama, are being held hostage in Turkey, the richer children for ransom and the rest to be chopped up for Turkey’s booming human organ harvesting trade, which is ten times more lucrative than Turkey’s massive tourism sector. As some 30,000 Turks are currently waiting for organ transplants and as 500,000 foreigners visit Turkey each year to avail of their cut price medical deals, the chop shops are kept busy with this insatiable demand, not only in Turkey but in and from Europe as well. Although human chop shops operate in India, Haiti, the Philippines and wherever poverty is rampant, Turkey’s are fat-tailed statistical outliers in the suspiciously high amount of (Syrian) cadavers available and the Ottomans’ penchant for the khazouk makes such abominations as organ harvesting of Ismaeli and Assyrians palatable to their mafia gangs.
Because Irish government funded NGOs like GOAL and Trócaire fund activities in the areas the kidnappers and organ harvesters control and because Mary Fitzgerald and other Irish journalists and politicians have worked closely with these criminals, we count on your officers to get them to throw light on these dark crimes.

George Galloway, Slaughtering Shias and Irish Labour Party Hate Speech

Mr Brendan Howlin. TD.
Leader, Labour Party
24 Eanair 2018
Dear Deputy Howlin
In referring to earlier correspondence concerning Ms Ivana Bacik, one of your senators, who is also a Trinity College Reid Professor, a post which is got by internal examination and not with reference to refereed academic publications, I first of all confirm that our meeting in Buswell’s Hotel from 12 noon to 1 pm will go ahead, with former MP and broadcaster Mr George Galloway chairing and the speakers being two relatives of the slaughtered and kidnapped children of Homs and Foua/Kafraya, whom your Wexford colleague, Mr Mick Wallace TD, movingly referred to in the Oireachtas debate of 5th ult on medical sanctions on Syria; you and most of your colleagues are most welcome to attend.
As the Syrian Arab Army are now less than 37 km from lifting this bloodiest of sieges, it might well end very soon, albeit with more loss of innocent Shia lives at the hands of the Irish, British, Chechen and Chinese jihadists, who have vowed to continue slaughtering Syrian Shias to the death. Be that as it may, Mr Galloway and the relatives have volunteered to speak in the hope that, together with Foreign Minister, Mr Simon Coveney TD, we may help get the White Helmets to return all of the 54 children they brazenly kidnapped in the full glare of the world’s media.
Although the welfare of those children is the meeting’s sole concern, given the cynical barbarity of the attack on their bus convoy and the support those who keep women in dog kennels in East Ghouta enjoy in Dublin 4’s supposedly radical circles. we must again take the dregs who support these barbarians and those who encourage them into our risk assessment procedures.
In this connection, please examine the picture below of Fr Joseph Bali, which looks like it has been lifted from Der Stürmer, for which Julius Streicher was hanged at Nuremberg but which is, in fact, appended to an article in an obscure extremist publication your senator Bacik is more than happy to chill with. The Labour Party must bring Ms Bacik to task over this if it wants to have any future outside of the suicide bombers and sundry Russophobic groupies hate-filled sectarian gibberish like that appeals to.
I know Fr Bali well, not only as a very capable official in the Syrian Orthodox Church, which has been subjected to umpteen genocides down the years, but as a very cultured, well-read, witty, multi-lingual gentleman that Syria and the Syriac Orthodox Church are both blessed to have in their beleaguered corners. For him to be ridiculed by your Labour Party in this base manner is an outrage.
I also know Syria’s Grand Mufti quite well and what applies to Fr Bali applies in equal store to his Muslim brother, who is a scholarly man of liberal mein, who has found himself, along with tens of millions of his compatriots, forced to face every jihadist mercenary that has seen fit to take the Saudi shilling; the Syrian Arab Army have already dispatched over 70,000 of these brutes, plenty of Irish and British passport holders included.
Regarding the words, real or concocted, of Syria’s Grand Mufti concerning suicide bombers, they are moot. The Syrian Arab Army has never once employed suicide bombers yet the controversial Ali Selim of the hard-line Clonskeagh Mosque who was employed to translate the Mufti’s words, led a siege on Dublin’s Belgian Embassy with Dublin’s celebrated (on RTE) suicide bomber Terry “Khalid” Kelly and the Dublin 4 set seem fine with that, as if Terry Kelly was just a freckle-faced Liberties lad, a broth of a boy only into recreational sex jihad, which is a euphemism for unspeakable barbarities Syrian, Nigerian, Libya and Iraqi girls and boys have been forced to endure as those, like Fr Bali, who defend them, are depicted as some sort of sub-humans for Ireland’s very own Übermensch to mock and sneer at, like Dublin 2018 is Prague 1938.
We are on the side of these persecuted angels. We stand with Fr Bali, with George Galloway and with the kidnapped Shia and Yezidi children, who are enduring fates our worst nightmares daren’t imagine. As with the Palestinian Syrian Palestinian baby Deputy Clare Daly and Senator David Norris helped us spring from a Turkish orphanage, we are counting on Minister Coveney, on senators, TDs and others of good will from all political parties and groupings in these islands to help us rescue these children from the brutes who snatched them. And we are counting on you to to do the right thing and clip that woman’s wings, if not for our sake, then for your own and the Party that James Connolly founded but those who sneer at James Connolly and the women of the Irish Women’s Workers’ Union who stood by him seem determined to kill off.
I am not one of those people but make no mistake about it, there is outrage over this as Der Stürmer was never popular here and that is before we get into Ireland’s micro communities of Shias, Alawi, Yezidi, Druze and Ismaeli who are in fear of Selim’s lot not only in Dublin but in Wexford and Waterford as well. Please do the right thing. Ditch Der Stürmer.
