Ireland and Islam
• Ireland is fertile ground for Islam, few would disagree. We have witnessed the demise of Catholicism, the abject failures of capitalism and secularism and coupled with the moral vacuum created by aggressive atheism, it doesn't take a genius to see that Ireland needs help, and Islam, we Muslims believe, is the answer.
That Bin Laden, or some other individual, came to the same conclusion is hardly breaking news.
What is surprising though, is Ireland's Ahmadiyya leader Michael Noonan's spurious allegation that there is "a small, militant element of Islam creeping into the country".
