sours:Exclusive: Education Jihad Sweeps the Country – A Guide to the Gulen Schools in America
Paul L. Williams, Ph.D. - Family Security Matters, April 22nd, 2010
A Gulen school where students are indoctrinated in the tenets of radical Islam to bring about a New World Order under sharia (Islamic law) may operate within walking distance to your home or business.
Your tax dollars might be used to further “education jihad.”
Your children or kids in your hometown might be groomed to take part in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire and the creation of a universal caliphate.
It sounds preposterous.
But it’s true.
You may even think that an ecumenical educational enterprise – – such as a charter school operated by recent émigrés from Turkey – – is worthy of support.
The Gulen schools are so subversive that they have been outlawed in such countries as Russia and Uzbekistan.
The funding for these institutions has been curtailed in the Netherlands.
The Gulen schools – – which fuel the Gulen movement – – have been responsible for transformation of Turkey from a secular state into an Islamic country with 85,000 active mosques – – one for every 350- citizens – – the highest number per capita in the world, 90,000 imams, more imams than teachers and physicians – – and thousands of state-run Islamic schools.
Yet Gulen schools flourish throughout the U.S.A. – – 85 such schools are already in existence and dozens more are expected to open next year.
All are funded by American taxpayers.
You might think of schools called “the Beehive Academy” or “the Chesapeake Science Point School” as altruistic institutions that serve the common good of the American people.
But names are deceptive and the Gulen movement operates under the Islamic principle of taqiyya or “holy deception.”
Fethullah Gulen, the 68 year-old founder of the schools and the movement, represents an embodiment of this principle.
In his public statements, Gulen has espoused a liberal version of Sunni/Hanafi Islam by promoting the Muslim notion of hizmet – – altruistic service to the common good. He has condemned terrorism, advocated interfaith dialogue, and met with such religious dignitaries as Pope John Paul II, the Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomeos, and Israeli Sephardic Head Rabbi Eliyahu Bakshi-Doron.
In private, Gulen has stated that in order to reach the ideal Muslim society “every method and path is acceptable, [including] lying to people.”
Nurettin Veren, a top administrator of the Gulen schools says: “These schools are like shop windows. Recruitment and Islamization activities are carried out through night classes.”
Bayram Balcri, a leading Turkish scholar, writes: “Fethullah’s aim is the Islamization of Turkish nationality and the Turcification of Islam in foreign countries. Dozens of Fethullah’s ‘Turkish schools’ abroad—most of which are for boys—are used to covertly ‘convert,’ not so much ‘in school,’ but through direct proselytism ‘outside school. Gulen wants to revive the link between state, religion, and society.”
Gulen has the financial means to achieve this objective. His movement has amassed more than $25 billion in assets. And he works to topple governments, indoctrinated youth, and create the New Islamic World Order not from Islamabad or Istanbul but rather from his heavily guarded mountain fortress in Pennsylvania.
