Irish police are questioning an Algerian man suspected of stabbing a woman and three children outside a school, in an attack that sparked a night of furious riots, looting and anti-immigrant protests in Dublin.

The Irish Times reported that the suspect is believed to be "a naturalized Irish citizen, who has lived here for 20 years."

A woman and a five-year-old girl he allegedly stabbed are in a serious condition in hospital. A 43-year-old Brazilian Deliveroo driver, Caio Benicio, was widely praised for jumping off his moped and knocking the man over the head with his helmet. Other people rushed forward to grab the knife.

Siobhan Kearney, who witnessed the stabbing, said the scene was "absolutely bedlam." "Without thinking, I just took across the road to help out," she told Irish national broadcaster RTE. "We got another young man, disarmed [the attacker] with the knife, another man took the knife and put it away for the [police] to find it."

Kearney said a group of people restrained the suspect on the ground, as some of those injured were taken back inside the school. One Irish woman and one American woman stood in front of the suspect to stop people from beating him. A photo at the scene shows the middle-aged suspect with blood in his mouth lying on the ground.

The attack occurred at an Irish language primary school, Gaelscoil Choláiste Mhuire, shortly after 1 p.m. on Thursday on Parnell Square East, in Dublin's north inner city, an area with a large number of low-income housing projects.

Irish police, known as gardaí, are still establishing if the attacker is mentally ill or if he was motivated by political or racial hate. Police Commissioner Drew Harris refused to rule out the possibility that the stabbing attack was terror-related.

The fact that a man attacked a school run through the Irish, or Gaelic, language helped fuel an outpouring of rage that saw anti-immigrant riots, lootings and arson in the hours that followed. Police struggled to contain the crowds, who attacked them on the street, and burned a hotel housing asylum seekers as well as a tram, a double decker bus and a police car.

Liam Geraghty, a superintendent with the Irish police, told reporters that he does not believe the attacker was politically motivated.

"We believe that this is a standalone incident, not necessarily connected to any wider issues that are ongoing in the country or in the city, and we need to identify the exact reasons for that happening. So we'd ask for people not to jump to conclusions and not to make rash judgments on what may have happened."

Geraghty said a total of five people were taken to Dublin hospitals.

"These casualties include three young children, an adult female and an adult male. "One girl, aged five years, has sustained serious injuries and is currently receiving emergency medical treatment in CHI Temple Street."

He added that a five-year-old boy and six-year-old girl were treated for less serious injuries.

Geraghty said the boy has since been discharged from a children's hospital, and that the woman in her 30s is being treated for serious injuries at the Mater Hospital in Dublin's north inner city. The man "is also being treated for serious injuries at a hospital in the Dublin region," he said.

Geraghty said that a man in his 40s is a person of interest and police are not looking for any other suspect.

There have been ongoing protests across Ireland against asylum centers amid a housing crisis. Many hotels and guest houses have been converted to asylum accommodation, leading to protests by people in towns affected by lower tourist income.

In late October, Ireland's Taoiseach, or prime minister, Leo Varadkar, said that the country had reached the limit of the number of asylum seekers and refugees it could accept.

On Thursday evening, Irish President Michael D. Higgins said that the stabbings should not be used by Ireland's far-right to stir up trouble.

"All of our thoughts are with each of the children and their families affected by today's horrific attack outside Gaelscoil Choláiste Mhuire in Dublin city center," he said. "We are particularly thinking of the 5 year old girl and the member of staff caring for her who are both in serious condition in hospital. All of our prayers are with each of them for a full recovery.

"The Gardaí deserve all of our support in dealing with this incident. This appalling incident is a matter for the Gardaí and that it would be used or abused by groups with an agenda that attacks the principle of social inclusion is reprehensible and deserves condemnation by all those who believe in the rule of law and democracy."

Sky News published November 24, 2023: Dublin stabbings 'horrifying act of violence', says Taoiseach Leo Varadkar. Taoiseach Leo Varadkar gave a statement in Dublin following the stabbings and later riots in the city. He called the stabbings a "horrifying act of violence" and says the riots "were full of hate" and those involved "brought shame on Dublin". 
Taoiseach means 'deputy prime minister'. (emphasis mine)

This Ireland Deputy Prime Minister needs to be removed from office. Unbelievable. He should be focused on the Irish people and little children who were attacked and almost murdered. How about saying we will not tolerate violent crime against our people. How about the hatred and violence toward the Irish people and Irish culture. Come on. What an asshole.

The Irish government response reminds me of the Commie Democrat District Attorneys across America who defend and protect the violent criminals instead of the victims. I call it the Commie Democrat 'Justice for Criminals' policies instead of what they call it, 'Criminal Justice'. The Commie Democrats say they feel sorry for the violent criminals because of their upbringing and therefore should be given leniency and forgiveness. That's how the Irish police and government treat the so-called 'refugees' flooding their country. If they burn down a town, the Irish police will say 'that's just who they are, let it go, move on'. That's more racist than the Irish rioters angry about the stabbing of very young children.

Every human being wants to feel safe. The people in charge number one responsibility is to keep the people they're responsible for safe. So with that said, can you see what side the government is on? They're keeping the criminals safe not the people paying their salaries.

The immigrants they are referring to in this news broadcast are "refugees" seeking asylum through the back door who have been allowed by the Irish government to get away with violent crimes against Irish people. Why? Because it is not politically correct to accuse the "refugees" of any crimes because then you are considered a far-Right racist fascist nazi by the far-Left globalist aholes who are financially responsible for human trafficking of mostly young men from Northern Africa to the West. These young men who are coming in as "refugees" through the back door will not care to assimilate to the local culture and will most likely resent and envy the quality of life the local culture enjoys which in turn will lead to crime against the local culture they come in hating from the start. Let's be clear, Irish people are not against immigration in general. They are against the massive influx of "refugees" mostly young able bodied men coming into Ireland seeking asylum from African nations that are not in a war and can get jobs in their own countries.

After a night of rioting, the mainstream parties and media have all but forgotten the horrific knife attack on three children and their teacher.

Irish police made 34 arrests on Friday, November 24th, after a night of rioting the country has not experienced in years. Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said those involved should be ashamed of themselves. Conservative commentators, however, believe mainstream parties have slyly shifted their rhetoric away from the real problem: the violent knife attack on small children in Dublin that preceded the riots on Thursday, and the ever-increasing number of asylum seekers in the Republic.

As our colleague in Dublin reported on Thursday, a knife-wielding man attacked schoolchildren as they were leaving a school in the Irish capital. A total of three children, their teacher, and the attacker were subsequently rushed to hospital after the frenzied assault was only stopped by a Brazilian fast food delivery driver, who used his helmet to beat the assailant to the ground.

A five-year-old girl remains in a critical condition, Reuters reports. The female teacher in her 30s is also in a serious condition. The two other children, a five-year-old boy and a six-year-old girl, suffered less serious injuries.

The attacker has been described by some media sources as an Algerian national, others speak of “a naturalized Irish citizen, who has lived here for 20 years.” Police have not commented on the nationality of the man—in his 40s or 50s—who is also being treated for serious injuries. Police have not ruled out any motive, including whether it could be terrorism-related.

They have, however, along with the mainstream parties, blamed the ‘far-right’ for the riots that followed the attack.

Multiple police squad cars, a double-decker bus, and parts of the Dublin tram system were set ablaze with additional reports of arson attacks surfacing. An asylum centre in the suburbs also went up in smoke. Thirteen shops were damaged or looted. One officer was seriously injured. Police said there would be a very heavy police presence on Friday, in anticipation of further rioting.

“Those involved brought shame on Dublin, brought shame on Ireland and brought shame on their families and themselves. … As a country we need to reclaim Ireland. We need to take it away from the cowerers who hide behind masks and try to terrify us with their violence,” Prime Minister Leo Varadkar told a news conference on Friday.

Irish Justice Minister Helen McEntee said, “We will not tolerate a small number using an appalling incident to spread division.”

The number of newly registered asylum seekers in Ireland last year was 13,651, a significant increase over recent years. The trend upwards has continued this year, with 1,481 asylum applications received in October, a 25% increase over October of last year. The main countries of origin are Nigeria, Algeria, Afghanistan, Georgia, and Somalia (the figures do not include Ukrainian refugees). In a recent survey, 75% of those polled said Ireland is taking in too many refugees.

A commentary on the news website Gript points out that “the media, like the government and the opposition, were eager to change the conversation, and Dublin city centre being set on fire gave them perfect cover to do so.” Though small children being subjected to a random, frenzied, knife attack had never happened before, the “focus had shifted, away from the stabbed children and onto the riots that followed.”

Meanwhile, Leo Varadkar said new laws would be passed in the coming weeks to enable police to make better use of CCTV evidence, and Ireland would also ‘modernise’ laws regarding hate and incitement. A hate speech law, which has already been in the works for some time, and is being discussed by the Irish Parliament, has been harshly criticised for its loose definition of ‘hatred’. The law would make it a criminal offence to possess allegedly “hateful material” on one’s person or in one’s home. Possession of hateful material will carry a penalty of up to five years in prison.

Paul Coleman, a British lawyer and executive director of the legal advocacy organisation ADF International (Alliance Defending Freedom) recently told The European Conservative in an interview that the Irish hate speech law “is probably the worst in Europe that I have seen so far.”
