    Default Ireland is the most islamic country in the world

    Ireland named as the best country for 'adhering to Koran'

    IRELAND is the best country in the world for adhering to the Koran, according to an Economic 'Islamicity' Index.

    Out of 208 countries, Ireland was judged to be the most capable of following its teachings, with Denmark and Luxembourg in second and third place.

    The index, which was published in the Global Economy Journal, used four main criteria for ranking the various countries. Economic achievements, human and political rights, international relations and the structure of those in power were the main pillars for deciding who followed the fundamental lessons of Islam.

    There are an estimated 49,000 Muslims living in Ireland and Dr Ali Selim, a senior member of the Islamic Cultural Centre of Ireland (ICCI), told the Irish Independent that the number has increased rapidly over the last few years.


    He attributed an "easy existence" between the Irish and the Muslims to a history of social similarities.

    "Ireland was once occupied and many Irish people suffered from racism attached to being associated with terrorism. Muslims have this confrontation wherever they go," said Dr Selim.

    Referring to one of the criterion used in the 'Islamicity' Index, the ICCI spokesman talked about the economic opportunities that Ireland offered to many Muslim immigrants. Dr Selim added that "in the Koran, Muslims are commanded to accomplish prosperity and Dublin is one of the highest economic centres for Islamic investment".

    The study was produced by Hossein Askari and Scheherazade S Rehman, two professors at George Washington University in the US.

    Surprisingly, not one country where Islam is the majority religion made it into the top 25, with Israel and China being rated higher in the list.

    Mr Askari explained that Muslim countries do very badly on these types of lists because those in power in Islamic countries often don't follow the rules of the Koran.

    Meanwhile, a new diabetes information resource has been launched in the run-up to Ramadan.

    The campaign allows those who suffer from type 2 diabetes, to manage their condition while fasting. It also encourages everyone to consult with a medical professional before and during the fast.

    'The Facts About Fasting During Ramadan' is supported by Diabetes Ireland and the info graph available on their website includes a blood sugar tracker, a list of symptoms to be aware of, and healthy diet guidelines.

    Starting on the June 28, Muslims will abstain from eating or drinking, from sunrise until sunset for one month.

    That's kind of nice.

    I suppose it failed to take into account "British" within Ireland who recently opposed the building of a mosque in Beflast and a certain pastor who deemed Islam as evil...

    My co-worker visited Ireland three months ago, and the impression he brought to us is that Irish simply accepted the fact that their nation is doomed - whether it is doomed by Muslims or EU it seems Irish did not care anymore.

    A pessimist is never disappointed.
    But sure, we'll get along with our Muslims once we trick them into drinking and we will, as sure as anything, nobody can stay in a room with an Irishman for long without a drink.

    Economic Islamicity does not mean Islamic all around. Isn't this thread and the article it uses overly misleading?

    As long as there is a nominal prohibition on alcohol in Islam, it will never be mainstream in Ireland

    Maybe this will bring about a El Cid type character and the Irish reconquista will finally move out neutral. It took the Spanish 700 years without the alcohol dependency though, no telling how long it will take the Irish....
    Last night, the complaints of the fans kept me awake and I had a terrible vision. I saw, the end of our franchise, countless bugs and bad reviews! Total War, GONE. Why would CA release such an unfinished game? They put effort into their work. They have released successful Total War titles aplenty! Their products are shipped to all corners of the world...and yet now I fear, I cannot help it. Total War is the envy of lesser gamers but CA, tell terrible lies to their fanbase, Rome II was bugged and unfinished SO THEY LIE. But Sega, they are the masters of falsehood. DLC will come, I am sure of it, so I will buy no more Total War games, and I think the forums, will be empty tonight.

    I think Irish people have a pretty good relationship with Muslims. Personally I have a good few Muslim friends in uni and my mother works for a Syrian doctor. I think Ireland is a very religiously tolerant place and is generally welcoming to foreigners too. We certainly don't give a crap about the terrorist stereotype, firstly because we don't believe every muslim is a terrorist and secondly we understand that terrorism can, in certain circumstances, be justified.

    Also we are very pro-palestinian and generally favour international underdogs.

    The irony... as if Islam is responsible or even related in any way to that in Ireland. So Muslims are now taking credit of someone else's achievements? Ok.

    I remember my teacher telling us about when she visited Turkey, she and her husband met another couple who lived there, and were Muslim. They wouldn't have a drink with the teacher for ages but then when it got later on in the night, the Muslim wife decided to go home. After another few minutes the husband then decided to have a glass of whiskey.

    So all we need do is single them out from other, judging, Muslim eyes and we got 'em!
