The Irish-Egyptian Halawa Sisters Circus

Why did the three Halawa sisters and their brother Ibrahim purposefully join a street demonstration in Cairo which led to all four being arrested and detained by President Al-Sisi’s forces? The Halawa sisters were released only to foment a campaign to release their brother Ibrahim Halawa without revealing their ardent support for the banned Muslim Brotherhood.

The Halawas, all four, addressed a crowd of 10,000 Muslim Brotherhood supporters, there is documentary proof of this meeting in Cairo. They were arrested by the Egyptian authorities for supporting the banned Muslim Brotherhood former president Morsi. Their father Imam Hussein Halawa is the supreme Muslim Brotherhood cleric in Ireland and general secretary of the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR) which is based at Clonskeagh mosque. The ECFR president is Yusuf al-Qaradawi, an extremist cleric, currently banned from the US, France, UK and Ireland, because he supports terror campaigns against Israel. The ECFR supports the fatwas of al-Qaradawi who advocates gays and apostates should be executed.

The Muslim Brotherhood supports Sharia law and is the origin of al-Qaeda. The Halawa sisters are regularly photographed brandishing photographs of Morsi in Ireland and Egypt and are ardent supporters of Hamas.

Anyone walking in the vicinity of this mosque notes no one attending the mosque smiles or greets the locals. Why are Muslims here in Ireland? Muslims describe the Clonskeagh mosque as the Ikhwani mosque or Muslim Brotherhood mosque.
The misguided attendance at a Muslim Brotherhood demonstration in Egypt is the reason Ibrahim Halawa is currently detained in prison. The Halawa circus is an abuse of the western liberal enlightenment in Ireland which allows people of all religions to live and thrive in a free and liberal society.
