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.
Buswell’s Hotel, Georgian Suite, 12 noon-1pm, Wednesday 31 January 2018.

George Galloway, the Syriac Orthodox Church and Irish Parliamentary Hate Speech

Mr Brendan Smith, TD, Chair
Mr Noel Murphy, Clerk
Joint Committee on Foreign Affairs
21 Eanair 2018
A chairde
The above article, which cites your colleague, Ivana Bacik, severely defames the Syriac Orthodox Church, a number of prominent, well-respected and highly-educated Syrians and my very good friend, Fr Joseph Bali, who is depicted as a Jew might have been by Julius Streicher.  Fr Bali was in Ireland assisting His Holiness, Patriarch Ignatius Aphrem II, and it was at his suggestion that he acted as interpreter to His Grace, the Grand Mufti of the Syrian Arab Republic; on that day’s edition of Drivetime, the two eminent Syrian surgeons who spoke to the Oireachtas offered to host Ms Bacik in Damascus, but she declined, preferring instead to defame them and global religious leaders as “Assadists” and thereby putting their lives at risk and further damaging whatever dwindling credibility the Labour Party still commands.
Prior to the arrival of His Holiness and Fr Bali at Dublin Airport, where they were greeted by a delegation from Ireland’s thriving Syriac community, they had been in London with His Royal Highness, Prince Charles, opening the new Cathedral of St Thomas, for which Her Majesty, the Queen, sent a telegram of congratulations. For Ms Bacik to attack the Syriac Orthodox Church and, by extension, the Royal Family, in this nakedly sectarian manner, brings your Committee into disrepute. On a personal note, Ms Bacik’s fellow travellers are now attacking Jeremy Corbyn for meeting me – at a meeting organised by the Conservative Party, from whom Ms Bacik could learn some basic manners. These morally challenged people have also attacked me for campaigning for a close friend of the Royal Family, whom ISIS kidnapped and most likely killed. Though one might disagree with Mr Corbyn or with the Conservative Party, at least they have a moral compass which, in the case of the Irish Labour Party, has, since De Valera’s time, been somewhat ephemeral.
Ms Bacik not only defames her betters but puts their lives at risk in much the same way that the late Rev Ian Paisley did with the late Anthony Reavey, following the 4 January 1976 murder of his three brothers by the notorious Glenane gang.  Although Mr George Galloway will touch on the Glenane “moderate rebel” gang both at Buswell’s Hotel and at the Talbot Street scene of their most notorious war crime, it should be noted that Mr Galloway collaborated fully with the late Rev Paisley on issues of temperance and gambling, where, with Mr Corbyn, they held the higher moral ground.
Because Ms Bacik’s shenanigans on your Committee does not augur well for peace in this island or beyond for those of us who are trying to build bridges of peace in Derry, in Dublin and in Damascus, you should really ask her to consider her position and perhaps make way for someone who is less Russophobic. Ireland’s fearful Alawi, Assyrian, Druze, Russian and Shia communities would no doubt thank you, as would Ireland’s swathes of former Labour voters.
That, of course, is your concern. For our part, we will continue to be voices for peace and reconciliation not only with our meetings in Buswell’s and the GPO but with other bridge-building events we have scheduled for the months ahead.

A Aire, a chara
The three pictures above, together with the Oireachtas debate of 5th ult, initiated by Deputies Wallace and Daly, who accompanied me and ​Edward J. Horgan Commandant (retd.), BA, M.Phil, PhD, to the Syrian Arab Republic, refer. The child victims of the rebel terrorists we met in Homs, Aleppo, Maaloula, and Foua/Kafraya extend their thanks to you for the compassionate way in which you responded to Deputies Wallace, Daly, O’Sullivan and Connolly and their relatives, who Mr George Galloway and I host in Dublin on 31st inst, wish to thank you in person and explain to you what they, the victims of this rosary of tragedies, would like you and your government to do to help bring peace with justice to their homeland and closure to their families.
Although Deputies Wallace and Daly spoke well and spoke informatively in the debate, they could necessarily only give you but a smidgen of the hell those little children they met have endured. The blood on the Hello Kitty uniform is real: a little girl, together with her two little sisters, her mother and scores of her class mates bombed into eternity for some regime change nonsense or other the Irish government have shamefully signed up to. Women kept in kennels and prominent government-funded Irish aid organisations working with their captors and supposed Irish radicals issuing Oireachtas amendments on their behalf.
Deputy Brid Smith and the other self styled radicals of People Before Profit might be advised to avail of Commandant Horgan’s professional artillery expertise and personal experiences in Syria and elsewhere before submitting further amendments on behalf of non-Syrians who keep Syrian women in dog kennels in East Ghouta. On my March visit, some Irish journalists and I were, together with the long-suffering citizens of Damascus, under constant shell fire from these foreigners a few blocks away and I helped the Syrian authorities shovel the “rebels” little victims into body bags but that, for them, is by the way. As it is only a smidgen of what I have seen in Syria, it serves to show why those who have experienced war do not talk about it.  War is hell, which is where these Irish passport packing “combatants” who kidnapped these Shia children and blew scores more little toddlers into eternity belong.
Our central and only mission on January 31st is to get you, your government and your Oireachtas and other colleagues to help secure the release of the 54 Shia children who were kidnapped in the full glare of the media cameras from the Foua/Kafraya April 2017 bus convoy. As even People Before Profit purport to support this, maybe we can hope. It is, in some respects, a follow up of when we managed, without media fanfare, to return, with your help, a Syrian Palestinian baby refugee in a Turkish orphanage to his grandmother in Damascus and the Syrian delegation the Oireachtas hosted on 1 December 2016 specifically thanked Deputy Daly and Senator Norris for their efforts in that regard.
The issue to Deputies Wallace, Daly, O’Sullivan, Connolly, as well as to Mr Galloway and myself, along with very many others, is quite simple in its Manichaeism. We are on the side of the Syrian angels, pictured above with Deputy Daly and Commandant Horgan and, People Before Profit notwithstanding, we loathe the “rebels”, pictured above, parading Christian, Shia and Druze women in cages in East Ghouta. We think that you agree with us and that you too want to stand with these little angels against the vilest creatures humanity ever spawned.
Drs Mohsen and Mohammad, together with Mr Galloway, look forward to discussing these issues with you and/or your representatives on 31st inst.

War Crimes in the Irish and Arab Worlds. Dublin Events 31 January

1. Buswell’s Hotel, Georgian Room: 12 noon – 1pm. Dr Bashir Mohammad (Homs native) and Dr Abdul Mohsen (Foua/Kafraya native). Chair: Mr  George Galloway. This meeting details horrific war crimes committed against the relatives, neighbours and friends of these two medics, in particular the October 2014 suicide bomb attacks on secular schools in Homs and the April 20i7 suicide bomb attack on buses evacuating women, children and wounded from Foua/Kafraya and the concomitant kidnapping of 54 children from the convoy by EU and Irish supported rebel “combatants”.

2. March against Mass Murder: Assemble 5pm Talbot St memorial to Dublin/Monaghan bomb victims to march to GPO. Main Speaker: Mr George Galloway. Topic: Mass Murder from Dublin, Monaghan and Derry’s Bloody Sunday (30/1/72) to Palestine, Yemen, Libya and Syria. The regime forces which have never been held to account for the former are now committing worse crimes in the latter as the Irish, like citizens in Hitler’s Reich, looks silently on.

1a A Taste of Hell: These horrific war crimes are only a tiny sample of what the people of Syria and contiguous countries have been put through. Deputies Clare Daly and Mick Wallace are to be commended for being lone Parliamentary voices speaking up for these victims and Foreign Minister Simon Coveney is to be commended for twice departing from his prepared script and telling them that he and his government would assist in freeing those 54 children “as far as  is practicable”.

2a. Yemen is Naked Genocide: George Galloway is to be commended for agreeing to walk from the site of one war crime (Talbot St) to that of another (Sackville Place) on behalf of those who are being systematically exterminated in Arab Lands as part of the business models of EU arms and related industries.

Cowardice, Inhumanity and Rapine: Were explicitly condemned by James Connolly and Patrick Pearse in the 1916 Proclamation and, implicitly, by Roger Casement who exposed European barbarities in the Congo. These ongoing barbarities are the hallmarks of the “rebels” in Syria and of their allies in Iraq, Libya, Nigeria, Yemen and the Congo where the usual suspects continue their cowardly, inhumane and rapacious trades as before.

Those who march with George Galloway on 31 January are not only on the side of the angels but on the side of the steadfast people of Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Libya and all the people of the Arab Lands who suffer barbarities designed only to enrich the Tony Blairs and other King Leopolds of our day.

Saudi Arabia out of Syria, Yemen and Ireland

Saudi Arabia out of Ireland: Protest at the Saudi Embassy in Dublin, Wednesday 13th December 1pm: to protest Saudi Arabia’s genocide policies against the people of Syria and Yemen, who are being systematically starved to death as we were in 1847. Saudi Arabia, which chops off more heads every year than ISIS do, fund terror world wide, Ireland included. Close their embassy. Kick the head hackers out. Mick Wallace TD slams Irish collusion with Saudi and EU war crimes in Syria and Yemen. Speech on Syrian sanctions here. Clare Daly TD slams Irish collusion with Saudi and EU war crimes in Syria and Yemen and makes good on her Syrian pledges. Speech on Syrian sanctions here.
I warned Simon Coveney, who listened to both the Wallace and Daly speeches, about Abdullah Issa’s Irish-linked killers who were feted as head-hacking heroes in Tipperary and in Dublin by the Green and Labour Parties. (See 2nd column above of  Debbie McCann’s expose)  Mary Fitzgerald, who has sung ISIS’ praises on countless occasions, reported in the Irish Times of May 24, Suicide Bomber Terry Kelly’s Muslim Brotherhood mob attack on Dublin’s Belgian Embassy. Mary Fitzgerald and Pat Kenny have also consistently supported CIA funded Dubliner Mahdi al-Harati and his Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), who did the London and Manchester bombings and numerous war crimes in Syria and Libya and who now run slave auctions in Libya and who even MI6 now admit are ISIS affiliates.
GOAL: cannot account for where their hundreds of euro millions ended up in Syria for the simple reason they sent it, less “expenses”, into head hacking, organ eating, child raping Caliphates. GOAL, OXFAM and others should be kicked bag and baggage out of Ireland and their ring leaders, past and present, arrested. More Information and detail at
Salesian Sr Bridget Doody: was here on RTE’s Drivetime on 8th December, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and the 95th anniversary of the shocking events in Mountjoy Prison we still live with. Sr Bridget proved herself a credit to God, to the Salesians, to Abbeyfeale and to Killeedy, whose accent and value system she has retained despite over half a century preserving Ireland’s good name in Egypt and the Syrian Arab Republic.

Galways’ Joe Canning visits liberated Aleppo with UNICEF on November 24th. Our gilt edged Aleppan partners include the Syriac Orthodox Church, whose Patriarch we brought to Dublin. As Joe Canning is highly respected both on and off the pitch, his presence in Aleppo will help make supporting Syrian children more respectable and blunt criticism of those of us who stand by the Syrian people.
No Hurlers on the Ditch: Although Joe Canning is to be commended for his humanitarian work (but not for breaking Waterford hearts), Syria needs senior hurling, serious efforts to alleviate the blight of sanctions and lay the groundwork for peace, sovereignty and an end to NATO backed savagery you cannot imagine in your worst nightmares. Whatever about UNICEF, our gilt-edged partners on the ground need your direct help to alleviate these most horrible of war crimes. The following is a necessarily incomplete list of those we directly help with your money and with our own.
Sr Bridget Doody (right of centre between the Syrian nun and me) was born and baptized in Abbeyfeale and grew up in nearby Killeedy Co Limerick. She and her fellow Salesians (her Italian superior is to the left) are doing great work in Damascus under constant shelling  by “the rebels”. Sr Bridget needs help to buy baby milk powder at $100 for a 25 Kl sack to Syrian and Palestinian families in dire need. (Kilburn has already pledged $200 on top of previous donations) Please donate and we will again pass it on in full in person before Christmas.
Dr Ali Mohsen coordinates relief efforts for the predominantly Shia survivors of the April 2017 Foua and Kafraya bus massacres as well as other evacuees under regular suicide bomb attack near the Shia Zeinab shrine in Damascus. His brother, Dr Abdul, will speak in Dublin at 12 noon on 31 January about the unspeakable war crimes Irish jihadists have subjected them to. 
Ms Ranyah Solyman is the Principal of Ekrema al Makhzoumi school in Homs, which was subject to multiple suicide bomb attacks in October 2014 because it is a centre of excellence (a great school with great teachers and great kids, in plain English). Students and staff are predominantly Sunni, if that matters. We gave them some money and wish to give them much more to show we stand with them and against the devils the EU sends to slaughter and organ harvest them. Parroting Not in Our Name or Pray for Syria is not enough. They need practical help.
Fr Taufiq Eid is the Melkite priest in Maloula, where Dr Joseph Saadeh is on the Town Council. We wish  to give them more money for heating oil (they need $60,000 to keep the poor warm this winter) and to subsidise the villager’s only nursery at $30 a child. The residents of Maloula speak Aramaic, the language of Jesus. Because of sanctions, even Syriia’s “rich” cannot get heating oil so you can imagine how the poor are getting on; as many Syrian children have frozen to death as a direct result of sanctions, their Santa wish list is modest in the extreme. Help them this Christmas. Donate.
 Drs Ahmad Khaddour and Mohammad Younes are heart surgeons in Damascus’ Dar el Shafaa Hospital. We paid £4000 for one heart operation (for a young Muslim girl) and will pay for several more on Christmas Day when we are back in Syria. The hospital, not us, picks the children. The surgeons work for free. The money covers the hospital’s necessary overheads. No donations, no operations.
The above are only a selection of our partners. Nothing is deducted for travel or other expenses. Every penny you give is accounted for, receipted and used with transparent paper trails.

Orphans of Syria: Appeal

Donate-> <-Donate

When I return for my eight and ninth visits to Syria at the end of October and for Christmas Day.  Your money  will be given directly and in full with zero deductions to orphanages, women’s groups and others who look after Syria’s tens of thousands of orphans. My self-funded journey will take me and my 24 strong group to Damascus,  Maaloula, Saidnaya, Homs,  Aleppo, Palmyra and Deir Ezzor, where we hope to cross the Euphrates.  Your money is important to help Syria’s unsung heroes give these child victims immediate help and some kind of a future. Securing them a future will take a lot of work and examples, such as you can do by giving in this direct way to those who need your help the most.
As I will be leaving for Damascus on 22 October and again on 15 December, your help is needed before those dates.  Though I will also be distributing $10,000 raised from other sources and about $2000 of electronic equipment, the more I can distribute, the more optimism we can give to them.
The photo above is of me in front of a tank in Maaloula on Easter Sunday 2014, just after the Syrian Army freed it. Maaloula like Aleppo, Homs and most other places has not been forgotten and its women and orphans left to their own devices.  The road back for them will be a long one but your contributions can help a lot.
On our last visit in March 2017,  we gave the money we had collected to the Melkite Church, the Syriac Orthodox Church in Aleppo, to women working on art therapy with orphans in the Old City of Damascus and to other good causes and people.
I am an Irish citizen,  a professor of finance who has written extensively on Syria and who has brought Syrian Muslim and Christian leaders  to the Irish Parliament form my own resources. This is the latest in a number of ongoing initiatives to help those who need help the most.

Slaughtering Syria’s Shias – Tipperary’s Take?

Dear Mr Martin Quinn of the “Tipperary” Peace Foundation

Please answer in detail the following so that we may update our files.

1. Who funds the “Tipperary” Peace Convention?

2. Who funded the security details for Mr John Kerry and other high-profile American winners of “your” prize?

3. Was the money you raised from the raffle to spend two nights’ B&B (mid-week) at the Clonmel Park Hotel, Tipperary, which you advertised on 25 January and again on 17 May, enough to cover the massive bills or had you a chicken raffle as well? When, if ever, will you announce the winner(s)?

4. What is your relationship with the Unification Church’s (Moonies’) Global Peace Convention and with Dr Tony Devine, one of their main operatives? Why are you its only European branch?

6. Do the Moonies fund your group? Do they help to choose the short list for your prize? If not, why not?

7. Who chooses the short list? What are their professional or other qualifications to do so?

8. By what authority do you accept that the White Helmets are worthy winners of your prize?

9. Should Russophobes award peace prizes?

10. Given your own rabid Russophobia, do you think paid lobbyists like Anna Nolan or NATO countries implicated in destroying Syria are credible or partisan sources?

11. Was it the work of Carl Sunstein, Samantha Power’s husband, on conspiracy theories, or the advice of Anna Nolan’s employers that got you to dismiss the overwhelming evidence implicating the White Helmets as the war criminals that they are?

11. Will you accompany us to the Syrian Arab Republic in October, at Christmas and/or at Easter to explain in person your collusion against them to the Syrian people? If not, why not?

12. Now that the Syrian Arab Army has broken the siege of Deir Ezzor, and the British, Jordanians, Qataris and Turks have all folded, do the Tipperary Moonies intend to be the last Syrian terrorist apologists standing?

Dr Declan Hayes
