‘Ireland’s Jihadi’s: True Lives’, a brand new documentary by leading investigative journalist Paul Williams, will air on Virgin Media One on Wednesday (September 26) at 10pm.
This gripping documentary lifts the lid on Islamic extremism in Ireland and tells the fascinating story of how an Irish woman, Aaliyah, got obsessed with Islamic extremism and befriended one of the London bridge attackers, who she claims travelled to Ireland to see her over 20 times, visiting Limerick, Clonmel and Cavan.
Aaliyah also claims there are over 150 Islamic extremists living in Ireland and that they are using this country as a base due to our weak border access with the UK via Northern Ireland.
Her claims have also been backed by leading cleric Shaykh Umar Al Qadri who also tells Williams that he believes a similar number of extremists are living in Ireland preaching hate.
In addition, Williams speaks to Aimen Dean, a former MI5 and MI6 operative who infiltrated Al-Qaida and currently lives in Cork. He believes Ireland is being used as a logistic base for extremist funding and recruitment.
