Except he isn’t Irish
Except he isn’t
No, he really is. He literally refers to the place aa home on video. You have no right to tell anyone how to identify themselves.
While it’s blatantly apparent to evweryone with a functioning brain and literacy that he is indeed an Irish citize, I fully retain the right to tell someone that they can identify all they like, but if they aren’t an Irish citizen, they aren’t Irish.
Great. You do that completely unrelated thing to what I was talking about.
I identity as a table.
Boring troll and pissant
He’s renounced his irish citizenship. He is Egyptian. At best he legally holds both Irish and Egyptian citizenship, he wants sharia law in Ireland, supports the Muslim Brotherhood ….
But the poor little fella wants to get home to his spuds and cabbage and his hurling
“He’s renounced his irish citizenship.”
“At best he legally holds both Irish and Egyptian citizenship,”
So he renounced his Irish citizenship and he’s an Irish citizen at the same time as being an Egyptian one. Are you reading what you’re writing?
“he wants sharia law in Ireland,”
Please provide one quote where he calls for this.
“supports the Muslim Brotherhood”
Again, quote him please.
He never renounced his Irish citizenship, he is Irish born and under the law at the time that guarantees him the right to be called Irish.
Its irrelevant whether he supports the Muslim Brotherhood or wants Sharia Law in Ireland, neither of those would disqualify him from being Irish.
So, he hold Irish citizenship, but you are not happy with his believes cause they are not the same as yours.
Good work pal. Nice progressive outlook.
Question for Moyes etc
Why do you bother engaging with obvious trolls?
” At best he legally holds both Irish and Egyptian citizenship”
And? Someone does not understand citizenship
“Ibrahim Halawa, an Irish citizen, is a prisoner of conscience, held in a prison in Egypt detained solely for peacefully exercising his right to freedom of expression and assembly. ”
This is what Amnesty International say about him. Unless you can prove your claim I think I’ll trust what Amnesty has to say.
Okay, assuming he’s Irish, the next question is…. can he play centre half?
Another 1000 days might put manners on him.
He’s not exactly Nelson now is he? Or even Bobby.
No, he was only involved in protesting, no direct terrorist activities like the others.
A person needs to have a fair trial. Full stop.
True, but he isn’t Irish.
So what, any person needs a fair trial.
And he is.
He is an Irish citizen. He calls Ireland home. In what way is he NOT Irish?
He might have been born here and hold an Irish passport but he looks a bit foreign and his name is kind of funny.
No, his renouncing of his Irish citizenship makes him not Irish.
Again. Proof of this?
But you also said he holds dual Irish and Egyptian citizenship, soooo……
How does one ‘renounce’ their citizenship? I imagine its a long drawn-out process (and one that is not afforded to minors).
Is it publicly known which passport he used when he arrived in Egypt?
Is it publicly known he has an Egyptian passport at all?
All relevant questions indeed.
I did a quick google to find any evidence of him renouncing his Irish citizenship, I got nothing, Daddy Wilson give us proof or I’m going to have to assume you’re just being racist. Or you’re trolling in a racist manner which pretty much still makes you a racist.
1000 days. I can’t even conceive it. I’m not sure what this will do though. What can be done? The state are not going to intervene.
Assuming you’re more than 3 years old, you should be able to.
Good effort, but a 3 yr old appreciating the concept of waiting their entire life for a trial is beyond their capacity, and mine.
If its all they ever did, it would be entirely within their capacity.
The State are doing all they can; Egypt is a sovereign nation, we can’t just demand that they release him because he happens to be Irish.
Correct, and if he has an Egyptian passport which/if he used it when entering the country, Ireland has very little say on this – in fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was being held longer due to ‘foreign interference’ in the case. Egyptians are proud people.
Well he’s on trial with 493 other people so I doubt it.
What’s going on stage to boost the Muslim Brotherhood got to do with whether he’s Irish or not ?
It’s a “Broadsheet” thing. A lot of people on here fail to understand, that the Egyptian government can be fairly “heavy”.
…and the Brotherhood are all cuddles and love for all. Especially women and gays, they cuddle them with fists and boots. Lovely people.
He identifies as Egyptian, take a listen to the recording he made inside the mosque. He even talks about fighting till the last bullet. Charming talk from young Paddy on holiday.
Huh. He’s still Irish, though.
He was seventeen years of age, a point in life in which we’re all entitled to be idiots. We should bring the lad home and envelop him in Irish welcomes and Irishness.
He is home.
I consider him as Irish.
I am also curious about his opinion on the ISIS massacre of some Iraqi Real Madrid supporters in Balad yesterday. Does Halawa support it or not?
Yes he found some spare time in his illegal and brutal incarceration to support a random unrelated atrocity in Iraq. In fact I am pretty sure he was somehow responsible.
Well some people are happy about it.
Because Real Madrid were Franco’s team and the AFA boys are full of hate.
…and will he be out in time for the Euros?
He’s one of the ‘Brand New Irish’ i.e. Irish when it suits me to have a country with no participation in my homeland conflicts, speak on my behalf and rescue me from my own mess because the Irish are so easy to guilt trip
If he is not a supporter of the Fascist Brotherhood then he is extraordinarily silly to have gone to their rallies and spoken there. To then end up in a mosque where men were exchanging shots with the cops just tops it off.
It’s like going to a neo Nazi rally in Germany and then saying you were there because you support free speech.
Nazi or not he still deserves a fair trial.
By the way he is Irish. You can’t renounce your citizenship even if you tear a passport. Would you renounce it if you spilled tea on it?
It’s not like we don’t have foolish young men or fascists in Ireland. He is Irish and one or the other of those.
He is so obviously not Irish and all the ‘bleatings’ of the ‘libtards’ will not make him so. He and his family arrived on our shores looking for a hand out – and now that hand is stretching even further. If the libtards want redemption – look after the homeless Irish who are dying on the streets – and gently – without placards.
Guinness storehouse is worth a visit.
You sound like a great fellow
