Baghdad editor denied voice in Ireland
“We’ll tell you what to think”. You can almost hear Bertie Ahern saying it. Today we slid further toward communism when a Dr. Ibrahim Allawi, a Syrian editor of a Baghdad newspaper was denied access to the country. He was due to speak today and give insight into the lives of ordinary people during the occupation of Iraq.
Instead, he’s being threatened with being stuffed back onto a flight to London if he fails to get a visa.
The Irish Anti-War Movement, which organised the visit, claims it is an attempt to silence critical views on American foreign policy ahead of George W Bush`s arrival in Ireland.
Damn straight! Typical of the “we don’t want to annoy daddy” mentality that’s been increasing of late.
