Festival Poster

An Irish far left web site reported on a festival that was to have been held in Dublin, Ireland in early April called the “Al-Aqsa Third Festival, Gaza’s Victory the Road to Al Quds (Jerusalem). The festival was sponsored by an organization known as the Palestinian Right Institution (PRI) of Dublin and was to have featured a seminar by Azzam Tamimi, a Palestinian whose family moved to Kuwait when he was seven. Tamimi was a long time member of the Muslim Association of Britain but switched allegiance to the British Muslim Initiative, both organizations being part of the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.K. He is the director of the Institute of Islamic Political Thought (IPT), known to have had Georgetown University Professor John Esposito on its Advisory Board as well as global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi. Tamimi is the author of books on Hamas and has been interviewed by Hamas T.V. In January of 2008 he told Iranian TV that “I want to see Israel come to an end.”Also listed as attending the festival was Adel Abdullah (aka Adel Abdallah, Adel Doghman) , General Secretary of the Conference of Palestinians in Europe and head of the Palästinensische Vereinigung in Österreich (Palestinian Association of Austria.), part of the Hamas fund-raising charity coalition known as the Union of Good.

The PRI is registered as a private company in Ireland and a 2008 Arabic language announcement for the PRI lists the Nur Al-Huda Quran school as a contact point. Nur Al-Huda is affiliated with the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland (ICCI), a large facility in Dublin closely tied to the global Muslim Brotherhood and serving as headquarters for both the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR) and the International Union of Muslim Scholars, both organizations headed by global Muslim Brotherhood leader Youssef Qaradawi.

Another announcement indicates that the PRI will be holding another public festival in early May “in the framework of its supportive activities to Al-Aqsa and Gaza.”
