Looks like the IRA may have been replaced. Why are Western nations harboring these groups? Freedom of speech should end when someone is advocating the violent overthrow of the government. In our culture, we have peaceful methods to bring about change and that is the only acceptable means. Outlaw these groups, arrest the mullahs or anyone else who incites them and make it next to impossible for them to operate. Remember they plan to use our freedoms to destroy us.
Extremists living in Ireland may be plotting atrocities across Europe, the country's justice minister Michael McDowell said yesterday.
Bertie Ahern, the Irish premier, last week revealed that police were monitoring al-Qaeda sympathisers in Ireland as part of a massive international security operation.
But, in the aftermath of the London bombings, Mr Ahern said he did not believe Ireland was under serious threat of attack.
Mr McDowell yesterday confirmed the movements and activities of several individuals throughout the state were being closely monitored.
"We are talking about a number of people who are under surveillance and whose activities are the subject of interest by the intelligence services of this island state," Mr McDowell told RTE radio.
"I have been in the closest possible contact with UK and US intelligence services in relation to this. There is a sharing of information and close co-operation."
