I have felt for a very long time now that Ireland is a sitting duck for Islamic extremists and that we are a hub for terror in mainland Europe. Gardai are watching individuals here that remain on the radar and who potentially could strike at any time. The terror threat here is at Moderate and that does not make me feel safe. So when I see an 18 yr old Egyptian man who was being turned down on asylum in the Uk and somehow managed to come to Dundalk, that makes me very worried and concerned at how easy it is to get pass border control. We need to control our borders and allow only persons from foreign countries in who can offer basic English, they will integrate into our society and completely understand the values and culture we have and to offer a skill of some kind. Otherwise what use am I if I go to Egypt with no understanding of Urdu, no understanding of Islamic culture and I have no skills to offer Egypt.
I know countries are taking in migrants but Hungary and Poland have taken in zero and they have no attacks like these. Arab countries need to take in the migrants because they are on the doorstep of Syria, Afghanastan and Lybia. We know that our social welfare system is very attractive to citizens of other countries. Why else would you travel 10,000 miles to get to Ireland. I completely understand a refugee crisis, but watching young men flood Europe and seeing some of these men attack European women is disturbing. A refugee crisis is women and children not all men.
Unfortunately we will see more attacks like the one in Dundalk yesterday unless we kick out known trouble makers and don't allow undesirables in. I may as well be talking to the wall as to suggest Leo Varadkar will actually take on board what I am saying but I do have a little bit of hope when I see him meeting Viktor Urban the Hungarian Prime Minister recently. Thought's and prayers to the Japanese family of the deceased. He came here for a better life to work in a call center and clearly integrated where the murderer from Egypt was an angry asylum seeker who clearly hated and detested our society and chose to take his fury out on us. Close the border and keep us safe and kick out any potential jihad suspects.
