Anyway, so far all he has done is try to find out if I'm Jewish. That's fine. I have probably done the same with some people out of curiosity. However when I confronted him on his site about this during a debate about expelling the Israeli ambassador from Dublin over the forged passport controversy, he proceeded to delete that section of my comment. My comment appeared on the MPAC.ie site as
It would be excessive to expel the Israeli ambassador. If it can be determined conclusively that staff from the Israeli embassy in Dublin were involved in the forgery of Irish passports then the appropriate staff should be expelled. It is however entirely possible that this was all done in Jerusalem in which case a firm protest would suffice.
What was missing was
By the way I see you were trying to find out if I am Jewish. Next time try asking. For the record I was born a Catholic just like you. I am still a Catholic. I have no Jewish connection what so ever. I do however have the ability to tell the difference between right and wrong. I know that anti Semitism, homophobia and actively working to bring about a deterioration in relations between Muslims and non Muslims is bad. Where as respect and working to improve relations between races and religions is good.
Egan deleted the second part of my comment admitting that he believes in "knowing thine adversary". And this is why he is a Sleeveen. The lowest thing a person can do on the blogosphere is to altar a person's comments in order to suit their own point of view. A website set up by some real Irish Muslims who appose Egan's extremest views delightfully described him as a Wahhabi Goebbels. What a perfect description. And that is exactly what he is. He deletes the comments of the vast majority of Irish Muslims who log on to his site to express their displeasure at his radical agenda. I also suspect that some racist anti Muslim remarks that are left on his site are in fact fabrications by Egan to portray the Irish people as Muslim haters. When I confronted him about this last night, he, you guessed it, deleted my comment. This is undoubtedly, the carry on of a sleeveen.
Other examples of a Sleeveen include
Ronan Keating has been cheating on his wife for the last 6 months. Sleeveen !
John Terry has been cheating on his wife with the girlfriend of his England team mate Wayne Bridge. Major Sleeveen !
Matt Damon's character in The Departed was a super Sleeveen. He was tasked with finding the informers in the Boston Police. He was the Informer.
Danny Devito's character in Mars attacks tried to make a deal with the all conquering aliens. What a sleeveen !
Benedict Arnold was an awful Sleeveen. He fought for the Americans in the revolutionary war but half way through changed sides and fought for the British.
Attila the Hun was a Sleeveen for obvious reasons.
When Charlie Haughey wanted Brian Lenihan out of the way he spread a false rumour that President Patrick Hillery had a love child with a mistress. The hope was that he would be forced to resign leaving the way for Lenihan to become President. He was the king of the Sleeveens.
