Ireland: Arrest Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun
Ahmad Badreddin Hassoun, grand mufti of Syria, a regime-approved religious leader, is this week amongst a delegation visiting the Irish Parliament, Dáil Éireann, campaigning for EU sanctions against the Assad regime to be lifted.
This man has previously threatened that Syria will send suicide bombers to all of Europe—see video above. The Irish police, An Garda Síochána, should urgently detain this man and charge him with inciting terrorism.
