The judge appointed a mediator as seven men appeared in court after a protest turned violent at Longford Islamic Centre last year. Supporters of an imam who was deposed, allegedly for heightening sectarian divisions between Sunni and Shi'a muslims, had been protesting against the governing council. In court one of the mosque's directors alluded to factionalising and threats of violence.

Worth keeping an eye on this - who are these factions and what do they want? Who is this former imam and what was he preaching?

Hijra = migration
Fitna = strife

Yeah, but he's a Sunni and I'm a follower of Ali.
Which one of you guys has the backing of Iran or Saudi Arabia or Hamas or Hezb0llah, where is my Middle East score card.

Perhaps we should look at getting a panel of multicultural experts together to help smooth over these kinds of problems? If the Irish Times could spare them, I think the likes of Fintan and Una could head up to Longford and sort things out very quickly. ;-)

Any other suitable candidates?

Colm O'Gorman. Hopefully he'll be thrown off a roof.
