Families Against Peadophiles: A group based in Monaghan Town, in The Irish Republic, and who made front page headlines in 2005 when they issued a death threat against a Monaghan man just released from prison. Have issued a Statement calling on the US President, Barrack Obama to withdraw his invitation to Gerry Adams to attend the White House on Saint Patrick's Day 2010. Mr Obama issued the invitation on Friday 5th February 2010, following the political parties in Northern Ireland making a deal on devolution of policing and justice from Westminster (British parliament)in London, to the Northern Ireland Assembly in Belfast.
The Statement says, "Sinn Fein President, Gerry Adams has been forced to admit that he concealed the identities and activities of two child rapists for over a decade". This statement relates to Gerry Adams admitting on Ulster Television that he had known about the rape of his baby niece Aine at the hands of his brother Liam for over a decade. And that while he knew that his brother Liam had engaged in this sexual criminality over many years he did not make a statement to police until he was forced to do so in 2007. Gerry Adams has also admitted that he knew that his own Father Gerry Adams Snr had sexually molested some of his own siblings.
Yes he should. I am so disgusted and angry I can't really formulate a coherent reply. But that is the LEAST that should happen to Gerry Adams for that despicable behaviour.
Despite the more than unfortunate goings-on in Adams's family (Gerry eventually urging his brother to turn himself in), Adams is a world political leader. Obama is meeting with him to back peace in Ireland, a close political alliance of the US and an important issue.
What happened isn't something to ruin world political ties over.
