"Drogheda Man" Dies From Effects Of Overdose Of The Drug Islam

Drogheda man dies fighting in Syria

A 22-year-old man from Drogheda who earlier this year joined rebels battling to oust Syrian president Bashar al-Assad has been killed by regime forces in the northern province of Idlib.

Hudhaifa ElSayed was shot dead on Tuesday during a skirmish between rebels and forces loyal to Assad. Syrian state media reported he had been killed but the exact circumstances surrounding his death remain unclear. He was one of an estimated 10-20 men from Ireland who have joined the Syrian uprising as rebels.

Mr ElSayed was born in Egypt but his family moved to Ireland when he was a young boy after his surgeon father, Abdelbaset, secured a job here. He attended St Mary’s diocesan school in Drogheda before working as a coach and trainer. Mr ElSayed, a naturalised Irish citizen, was well-known within the Muslim community for his involvement in youth projects.

He and other men from Ireland joined the Syrian rebels as part of Liwa al-Umma, a brigade founded by a Libyan-Irish man named Mehdi al-Harati, who also commanded a rebel unit during the Libyan revolution last year.

Mr ElSayed told The Irish Times in Idlib in July that he was driven to join the Syrian uprising out of idealism. “I see my life as being about three things: searching for the truth, defending the weak against injustice and the oppressors, and helping to build peace in the world,” he said. “The battle here in Syria combines all three.” [what he means is this: Defending The Faith of Islam against those who, in his view, limit the power of Muslims. And Assad's despotism limited the power of Muslims, not least by protecting the non-Muslims in Syria from Muslim depredations].

Irish-born Housam Najjair, who also fought with Liwa al-Umma, paid tribute to Mr ElSayed. “He died a brave man just the way he lived. It is never easy for a parent to lose their child. The sooner Bashar is removed from power the sooner this bloodshed will stop.”

Mr ElSayed’s friends flooded Facebook pages with tributes yesterday. “Hudhaifa left us for a great purpose. He was a man with a message. And I hope his legacy continues with us. Driven by a passion to make an impact on the world. He was a dreamer. A perfectionist. A friend,” wrote one.

Mourners gathered at the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland in Clonskeagh, Dublin last night to offer condolences to the ElSayed family.

 The Holy Land of Ireland is well rid of him.  One less jihad-minded Mohammedan to worry about.

One hopes that the other '15 to 20' zealous Irish-passport-possessing Mohammedans who have gone off to Syria to assist the Sunni Muslims in their attempt to overthrow the insufficiently-Islamic Alawite regime and install a Sunni Muslim state within which Sunni Muslims can - to their hearts' content - oppress the Shiites, the Alawites, and the Christians, will meet a similar fate, and never return to Ireland to hatch and wage murderous jihad plots there.

If the Irish Authorities had even a gram of commonsense, not one of those 15 or 20 Sunni Muslims, whether possessing Irish residency or Irish citizenship (a citizenship that counts for nothing to them, except as a means by which they may serve the power and prestige of the Ummah, or Mohammedan Mob), who are known to have gone to Syria to aid the Sunni Muslim power play there, would - should they fail to meet the same sticky end as Mr El Sayed did - be permitted to return to Ireland or to any other non-Muslim land.  Their Irish passports, and Irish residency or citizenship, should have been cancelled months ago.  

And as for those pronouncements of Mr El Sayed - 'searching for the truth, defending the weak against injustice and the oppressors and helping to build peace in the world', one must remember that in Islamspeak, 'truth' = Islam/ anything taught approved or permitted by Islam (whereas 'untruth' or 'falsehood' = 'anything not-Islam'), 'the weak' = any Sunni Muslims who - wherever they happen to reside - are not actually in a position of absolute power over other kinds of Muslims and over Infidels  (if he were a Shiite, 'the weak' would mean, any group of Shiite Muslims who were not actually uncontested rulers of the places where they resided), 'injustice' = 'Sharia not the law of the land, and/ or Muslims not in possession of absolute power', 'oppressors' = 'non-Muslims, or the wrong kind of Muslims, ruling over or not absolutely subject to his kind of Muslim', and 'peace' = 'a state of affairs in which his kind of Muslims rule and the sharia of Islam is Law'.

For more on the peculiar Mohammedan definition of 'oppression', one may consult ex-Muslim Abul Kasem's scathing little piece, 'When Is Islam Oppressed?', which explains it pretty thoroughly.

The authorities in Ireland - as they mull over what to do about the Muslims in their midst, and as they decide what to do about the citizenship status of those 15 or 20 Muslims from Ireland who are currently fighting to overthrow the insufficiently-Islamic Alawites, need to bear in mind that for Muslims such as this, Sunni Muslims taking Islam fully to heart, it is not only Assad and Assad's Syria that qualify as unjust and oppressive, but.. Ireland.

Yes, the Ireland in which Mr El Sayed's Muslim father has lived and prospered and raised a large family, in a peace and safety he would not have had either in the Egypt from which he departed nor  in what Egypt is now becoming.

That secular - and Catholic - Ireland is not, in Muslim eyes, truly at 'peace', for in Ireland, Muslims are 'weak'; they are in a small enough minority that they cannot seize control of all the levers of power, they do not yet rule, free to do whatever they will - up to and including murder, rapine, and robbery - to such non-Muslims as they encounter.  Ireland is 'unjust' and 'oppressive', for Muslims do not rule there, and the law of the land is not the Sharia of Islam; if a Muslim man executes his uppity daughter (as the sharia permits him to do) or beats his uppity wife to within in an inch of her life, he can expect to be prosecuted by the Infidel police and subjected to Infidel law.  

Every 'reason' that El Sayed gave for joining the jihad to overthrow the Alawites, is also the 'reason' that will, sooner or later, animate those who will plan and plot and actively embark upon Muslim jihad within Ireland itself, against Irish non-Muslims and the non-Muslim polity of Ireland.
