EDUCATION JIHAD comes to America via Turkish Gulen charter schools funded by you!

Although under investigation by the FBI, these Islamist-linked, American-taxpayer-funded Gulen charter schools continue to open and expand all over the U.S. Now, the Harmony Schools in Texas have been accused of indoctrinating Muslim religious beliefs in their curriculum.

  In the past, the Ottoman Empire could not defeat the West by the sword, so now Fethullah Gulen’s community systematically employs very different tactics to bring the West under Islamic rule. For profoundly anti-democratic goals they use America’s democratic values-freedom of speech, political correctness, tolerance, and multiculturalism-as tools for disseminating Gulen’s ideology. “You move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers…until the conditions are ripe… If you do something prematurely, the world will crush our heads. The time is not yet right. You must wait until such time as you have gotten all the state power, until you have brought to your side all the power of the constitutional institutions in Turkey… The work to be done is in confronting the world.

A group of charter schools with innocuous names like Chicago Math and Science Academy are currently educating as many as 35,000 students in 100 publicly funded schools, make up the largest charter school network in the US. They promote an Islamic agenda, but receive government money, unlike other religious schools in the United States. These are the schools that are part of what is called Fethullah Gülen Community (FGC), also known as “the Gülen Movement.”

Harmony Charter Schools are being accused of ties to Islamic movements in Turkey

KTSM The Harmony Schools are charter schools in Texas that (claim to) focus on Math and Science. There are two in the El Paso area which have been attracting attention for their success rates with the students.

The Cosmos Foundation is the parent organization to the Harmony Schools. It is a charter school operator founded a decade by a group of professors and businessmen from Turkey. Cosmos has moved quickly to become the largest charter school operator in Texas, with 33 schools receiving more than $100 million a year in taxpayer funds.There are about 120 schools across the country that teach over 20,000 students.

In the last few years, the schools have been garnering negative attention for their supposed link to the Gulen Movement, a Muslim following. Many of the staff and some of the founders of the schools are from Turkey and happen to be followers of Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish preacher of a moderate brand of Islam.

The Superintendent of the schools and one of the Co-founders, Soner Tarim, is a Turkish-American and came to the United States in the early 90’s to study at Texas A&M. He says the schools do not reach religion at the schools. ” Because I’m the head of the school people should not look at me and label the school…all of our teachers and parents know that we do not teach religion obviously, this is a public school.”

CBN News takes an exclusive look at Turkish imam Fetullah Gülen — a man who some have called the world’s most dangerous Islamist. Gülen directs his global Islamic movement not from the Middle East, but from Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains.

Not everyone in the school system is happy with Harmony. Donna Garner, a former teacher in Texas, has been studying these schools for years. She says the schools are a front for an Islamic movement. “They have brought in all these teachers from Turkey, how are they going to teach students about being a good solid American patriot, to learn about the U.S. Constitution, to honor our forefathers, to study the declaration of independence.”

Tarim refutes this and says that some of the teachers are international, but 85% are hired locally. (But how many of those are Muslims?)

Garner also recalled a situation at a Harmony School performance in Texas, when students stomped on an American Flag. Whether this is true or not, Harmony Schools insist that they do not teach any Anti-American beliefs.

The Gulen Movement is a transnational civic society movement inspired by the teachings of Turkish Islamic theologian Muhammed Fethullah Gülen [in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania]. His teachings about hizmet (altruistic service to the “common good”) have attracted a large number of supporters in Turkey and Central Asia and increasingly in other parts of the world, estimates vary from hundreds of thousands to 4 million. The movement consists primarily of students, teachers, businessman, journalists and other educated professionals, arranged in a flexible organizational network. It has founded schools, universities, an employers’ association, as well as charities, real estate trusts, lobby groups, student bodies, radio and television stations, and newspapers.
Gulen’s grandiose vision is the restoration of the Ottoman Empire and the creation of a universal caliphate.  In his public statements, Gulen espouses a liberal version of Sunni/Hanafi Islam and promotes the Muslim notion of hizmet – – altruistic service to the common good.  In private, Gulen has stated that “in order to reach the ideal Muslim society ‘every method and path is acceptable, [including] lying to people.'”  With assets in excess of $30 billion, Gulen has wielded political allegiances in Washington that have resulted in the placement of Turkish Muslims in the CIA, NSA, FBI, and other national security organizations.  He has created well-heeled lobbies to promote the cause of Islam and to develop Islamic candidates for political office.  He has formed close friendships with Bill and Hillary Clinton, former Secretaries of State James Baker and Madeleine Albright, and George W. Bush.

At Gulen Charter Schools, American students are required to carry TURKISH flags along with American flags

FBI Investigating Gulen Charter Schools, parents pulling kids out

HFP  Fethullah Gulen is a major Islamic political figure in Turkey, but he lives in self-imposed exile in a Poconos enclave and gained his green card by convincing a federal judge in Philadelphia that he was an influential educational figure in the United States.  Followers of Gulen have opened the network of charter schools across the U.S., and that federal authorities are investigating claims that school workers are donating portions of their salaries to a Muslim movement founded by Gulen.

As evidence, his lawyer pointed to the charter schools, now more than 120 in 25 states, that his followers – Turkish scientists, engineers, and businessmen – have opened, including Truebright Science Academy in North Philadelphia and another charter in State College, Pa.

The schools are funded with millions of taxpayer dollars. Truebright alone receives more than $3 million from the Philadelphia School District for its 348 pupils. Tansu Cidav, the acting chief executive officer, described it as a regular public school. “Charter schools are public schools,” he said. “We follow the state curriculum.”

FETULLAH GULEN

But federal agencies – including the FBI and the Departments of Labor and Education – are investigating whether some charter school employees are kicking back part of their salaries to a Muslim movement founded by Gulen known as Hizmet, or Service, according to knowledgeable sources. In Turkey, Gulen’s followers have been accused of pushing for an authoritarian Islamic state.

Religious scholars consider the Gulen strain of Islam moderate, and the investigation has no link to terrorism. Rather, it is focused on whether hundreds of Turkish teachers, administrators, and other staffers employed under the H1B visa program are misusing taxpayer money.

Aksoy, president of the Golden Generation Worship & Retreat Center in Saylorsburg, Pa., where Gulen lives, said Gulen, who is in his early 70s, “has no connection with any of the schools,” although he might have inspired the people who founded them. (That’s a total lie, he is the founder and leader)

Another aim of the Gulen schools, a federal official said, is fostering goodwill toward Turkey, which is led by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the pro-Islamic fundamentalis prime minister, whose government recently detained journalists after they alleged that Gulen followers were infiltrating security agencies.

Gulen schools are among the nation’s largest users of the H1B visas. In 2009, the schools received government approvals for 684 visas – more than Google Inc. (440) but fewer than a technology powerhouse such as Intel Corp. (1,203).

The visas are used to attract foreign workers with math, science, and technology skills to jobs for which there are shortages of qualified American workers. Officials at some of the charter schools, which specialize in math and science, have said they needed to fill teaching spots with Turks, according to parents and former staffers.

Ruth Hocker, former president of the parents’ group at the Young Scholars of Central Pennsylvania Charter School in State College, began asking questions when popular, certified American teachers were replaced by uncertified Turkish men who often spoke limited English and were paid higher salaries. Most were placed in math and science classes.

“They would tell us they couldn’t find qualified American teachers,” Hocker said. That made no sense in Pennsylvania State University’s hometown, she said: “They graduate here every year.”

Other school parents described how uncertified teachers on H1B visas were moved from one charter school to another when their “emergency” teaching credentials expired and told of a pattern of sudden turnovers of Turkish business managers, administrators, and board members.

An English translation of Gulen’s speech to his followers. Gulen has two faces…the one he wants you to see and the one with his true Islamist agenda.

The charter school application that Truebright filed with the Philadelphia School District in 2005 mentioned that its founders helped start similar schools in Ohio, California, and Paterson, N.J.

Further evidence of the ties comes from a disaffected former teacher from Turkey who told federal investigators that the Gulen Movement had divided the United States into five regions, according to knowledgeable sources. A general manager in each coordinates the activities of the schools and related foundations and cultural centers, he told authorities.

Ohio, California, and Texas have the largest numbers of Gulen-related schools. Ohio has 19, which are operated by Concept Schools Inc., and most are known as Horizon Science Academies. There are 14 in California operated by the Magnolia Foundation. Texas has 33 known as Harmony schools, run by the Cosmos Foundation.

Report reveals that some Horizon Science Academy schools across Ohio used nearly $13,000 of taxpayer money for immigration and legal fees for teachers recruited overseas — many of them from Turkey. State auditors found some who received immigration and legal fees were never employed at the schools. In 2008 and 2009, immigration records show at least 53 H-1B immigration visas were issued to Horizon Schools.

In their investigation, federal authorities have obtained copies of several e-mails that indicate the charter schools are tied to Hizmet and may be controlled by it:

One activist sent an e-mail Aug. 30, 2007, to administrators at four schools and the president of Concept Schools in which he mentioned “Hizmet business” and several problems that needed to be addressed so that “Hizmet will not suffer.”  And the disaffected teacher who described the five regions gave authorities a document called a tuzuk, which resembles a contract and prescribes how much money Turkish teachers are supposed to return to Hizmet.

State auditors in Ohio found that a number of schools had “illegally expended” public funding to pay legal, immigration, and air-travel fees for nonemployees and retained teachers who lacked proper licenses. Audited records from the Horizon Science Academy in Cincinnati in May 2009 also say that “for the period of time under audit, 47 percent (nine of 19) of the school’s teachers were not properly licensed.”

The same records show that the founder of Horizon Cincinnati was listed as the CEO of the school’s management firm and as president of the school’s property owner.

The American charter schools were a central part of Gulen’s argument that won him a green card after the Department of Homeland Security ruled that he did not meet the qualifications of an “alien of extraordinary ability” to receive a special visa.

In a lawsuit Gulen filed in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia in 2007 challenging the denial, his attorneys wrote: “In his position as the founder and head of the Gulen Movement, Mr. Gulen has overseen the establishment of a conglomeration of schools throughout the world, in Europe, Central Asia, and the United States.” His attorneys also referred to a letter of support from a theology professor in Illinois who described Gulen as “a leader of award-winning schools for underserved children around the world, including many schools in the major cities in America.”

Gulen Charter Schools use a lot of deception a false marketing practices in the advertisements of these schools.

On July 16, 2008, U.S. District Court Judge Stewart Dalzell ruled that Gulen met the requirements for a green card. Hocker, the State College parent, said the current CEO had assured her the school had no ties to Gulen. Rather, he told her that Gulen had inspired him to go into education and that Turkey “wanted to be known for teaching, the way you would think of India” for information technology, Hocker said.

But she noted that when the school’s founding CEO disappeared, his successor arrived from the Buffalo Academy of Science, another Gulen school. The dean of academics came from a related school in New Jersey. Ulker, Truebright’s, CEO, was one of the school’s founders and is a board member.

“If you start looking at their names, you can connect them back to all the other charter schools and Gulen groups,” Hocker said. She later withdrew her three children over concerns about secrecy and finances.  A sister school – Young Scholars of Western Pennsylvania – is scheduled to open outside Pittsburgh in the fall.

Donna Garner

Donna Garner’s personal accounts of the Gulen Harmony Schools:

LIBERTY LINKED  “A mother called me last week to tell me about her middle-school daughter.  I guess because I was a teacher for so long and write education articles, people tend to turn to me with their concerns. The mother (I will call her “Annie”) said her daughter (“Suzie”) went to a Harmony School in Texas.  Annie thought the schools would be good because they advertised their well-disciplined approach and high science and math scores.

Annie allowed her daughter to remain in the school for a year but became very concerned as the school year progressed. Annie described the Harmony School as being decorated all in Turkish furnishings, wall hangings, memorabilia.  Many of the students were Muslims, Pakistanis, Turks, Asians, etc.  Low-income Afro-American and Hispanic students also went there. Suzie is dark-skinned, and that is one reason Annie thought her daughter would fit in well at Harmony.

 Annie said there were four American teachers who spoke good English; the rest were Turks who came from Albania. The e-mails that Annie received from the school were written in such broken English that she could hardly understand the content. Suzie received almost no instruction on English grammar/usage, and her ability to write in good English decreased in proficiency while she was there.

Students had uniforms and T-shirts from Turkey. The school held cooking classes for parents and taught them Turkish recipes.  Trips to Turkey were advertised early in the year, and students and other people went on these trips for a two-week spring break.  If students could not afford the trips, they were provided the money to go.  The summer trip to Turkey was for one month. Students participated in the Science Olympiad that was held within the Cosmos Foundation across the United States — Cosmos students competed with other Cosmos students.

When worried Texas parents try to warn of the dangers of the Gulen schools, liberal CBS News, in its typical left wing condescending way, moves in to demonize the parents and defend the School Administrators without any investigation of their own. 

The video says, “CBS 7 first reported Tuesday, a West Texas group is claiming that a charter school coming to Odessa this fall has ties to radical Islam in Turkey. But tonight’s statements from school administrators and new information seem to indicate that claim is not true.” (Seem to indicate? How about doing your own research instead of taking people working for Gulen’s word for it?)

The Harmony students took very frequent field trips during the school year and constantly put their students on display. They almost always went to places and had luncheons where elected officials could see them and did frequent performances for Congressmen, state board of education members, Texas legislators, city councils, judges, police chiefs, fire chiefs, etc.

 The mother said Suzie received overly generous grades the whole time that she was in Harmony and that students whom Suzie knew were mediocre students also received inflated grades. In January students who had received F’s for the first semester were bumped up to B’s.

To prepare the students for the TAKS, Suzie told her mother that they were drilled on dates (e.g., 1492), but there was no explanation or teaching about the historical background of such dates. When they were taught history, they studied such things as a story about a Japanese (or Chinese) man who lived in California and invented “the first airplane.”  Nothing was ever taught about the Wright Brothers.

GULEN schools students are given T-shirts with the Turkish flag on it

Multicultural historical figures were emphasized, but the Founding Fathers had little if anything said about them. There were three mentions of Paul Revere in a textbook, but they were short sentences. The students did read a book that was supposed to be about Paul Revere and the historical figures of the time but ended up being a book about the female author. The books were dry, unengaging, and contained no traditional history with stories of American heroes and heroines.

 Suzie did have textbooks, but the literary selections were about dark, depressing, negative,and  disturbing subjects that referenced America with frequent examples of drugs, alcohol, and violence.  Suzie and her mother both felt the literary selections did not represent wholesome American life. Because Suzie became increasingly depressed while attending Harmony, Annie decided to remove her from the school after a year.

While the Gulen Movement works to censor the Turkish internet, Gulen’s organization is involved in the internet porn industry:

What we need to remember is  nobody monitors these Harmony Schools during the administration of tests. What is to prevent these H-1 visa teachers who are from Turkey and who have no commitment to the American value system to give their students the answers?   The Wikileaks cable from the U. S. Ambassador several years ago revealed that the Gulenists are taking over the Turkish Security Forces by giving applicants the answers to the tests. If this is their mode of operation in Turkey, it very well could be the way they operate here.   Dr. Ed Fuller’s research showed that over half of the students who start at Harmony leave.  This would certainly be a major factor in raising their TAKS scores — weed out the weak students.

A friend wrote to me a few weeks ago and told me of an incident at Indian Springs Park in Waco, Texas.  The Harmony Science Academy students from Waco performed at a community art festival.  As reported by my friend, the students were dressed in their attractive Turkish costumes and were waving bright-colored Turkish flags. The audience was impressed with the students’ graceful movements as they flourished their Turkish flags throughout the dance; but at one point, the students took a large American flag, put it on the stage floor, and began to dance upon the flag.

When the members of the audience realized that the students were treading upon our nation’s flag, various people rose to their feet to object to this lack of respect. The dance finished up about that time, and the children hurriedly left the stage. My friend said she felt the incident demonstrated that there is a type of subtle, anti-American indoctrination that is occurring at Harmony Science Academy.

Watch out Canada, since the FBI investigations, many Turkish Gulen teachers are heading for Canada.

  1. I think the purpose of the people who are labeling successful charter schools as Gulen Charter Schools is to defame Fethullah Gulen and successful charter schools. It was mentioned on CBS’s 60 Minutes that nationwide TIME Magazine listed some of those two successful charter schools in top 10 schools of the nation. They’re combining those schools as Gulen Charter Schools, because they’re successful. Those people who are actually against good and goodness picking Fethullah Gulen’s name as a person to mention with those successful charter schools. Whoever they are, they don’t like Fethullah Gulen because of his teachings and positive contribution to humanity in 21st century.

    • AD, you are a Muslim plant. We know very well who Gulen is and how he got thrown out of Turkey for his radical Islamist views. He is under investigation here for bringing in unqualified Muslim teachers from Turkey and replacing American teachers with them.

      The bastard should be in jail and all his Islamist schools shut down.

      Don’t come here and make a case for this Islamist POS.

  2. The Moslems could not have discovered America since they did not have ships. Moslems did not have roads. The Chinese came to California in 1491 and the Norse came to Newfoundland in the 900s or so. Possibly the Celts also. But never the Moslems. They were not nearly as sophisticated as people believe. See “The Case For the Crusades.”

  3. CIA is using Gulen to create a moderate version of islam. But causing spread of an incurable epidemic in USA which they will eventually regret in near future. They are an extremely covert organization. In Turkey, they penetrated into many organizations and they do it though their school graduates. Certain percentage of their graduates becomes obedient robots. Once they have the full control of a certain organization, then another different stage begins in their agenda. I am really sorry for USA since they already inflicted with this deadly epidemic. Almost no recovery exists.

  4. http://www.fethullah-gulen.org/news/turkisholympiad.html

    They hold their Turkish Olympiads all over the USA and the World, to teach that Turkish is the language of peace and happiness.

    “7 billion people 1 language” Their slogan.

    AND there are American parents that allow their children this Turkification process while using our money to accomplish this. What about American Olympiads, American children learn about their great country’s history and reciting of the Constitution and moments in History.

    America will win

  5. P.S. Randy et al
    The dove science Academy in Tulsa, Ok actually lost their charter designation after a very tragic and well – publicized rape on campus and financial mismanagement. The school district withdrew their support after the Gulenists marched in with a few American parent puppets to plead with the school.
    The Gulen Movement will identify parents that are weak, and give their kids good grades and promote them. So the parents have an attitude of “my kids are finally getting A’s at these schools please don’t shut them down” when in reality the Gulenists cheat on the tests and have been seen changing answers. They don’t care about creating smart children in the USA in fact they want to promote a nation of idiots, and identify a few that will learn turkish and be a part of the Golden Generation of the neo Ottoman Caliphate.
    There was a settlement paid out to the rape victim (11 years old at the time) of $60K and $40K went to her law firm by yet another foundation formed by the gulenists for damage control.
    They then went to Langston University to gain some support, they have puppets at every major universitiy in the USA and Gulen’s personal goal is to have 1 Turkish professor at every US higher educational system. They estabilish Turkish friendship clubs, bring in students from Turkey put them on the salary of the Charter school while they obtain their Masters and Ph.d at American Tax Payer expense.
    The last we heard about Dove Science Academy is that one of the teachers admitted to being a follower of Gulen and was inspired by him. They then pulled away from the name “Dove” and opened Discovery school but we believe it is a private school.
    They are under the Cosmos Foundation and are funneling money from Texas, and of course back to Turkey. No Doubt Texas Tax money is going to support this private school as well as a few other Turkish private schools.
    Many of the school buildings are owned by Gulen’s investors (Tuskon group) and they are overinflating rent back to Turkey. For example, Syracuse Science Academy which was a former Catholic School was purchased by a Gulen Business man……….for $340K, the school pays $20K a month back to Turkey where this Gulen Business man resides, in 2 years he will have close to $500K on an old delapidated building no doubt with lead.
    Some of the schools have had gas leaks (Gateway Science and Harmony Science) as a rule the Gulenists are cheap and put nothing into the schools – just a mere front.
    They particularly like to buy old churches and catholic schools and convert them. Adding salt to the wounds of America.
    Just wait………………America is waking up and people like you will educate 10 more people.

  6. Randy et al;
    The Governments are slow to react to the Gulen Movement, but they are reacting. The power is with the PEOPLE. If anything will happen sooner rather than later it is up to us.

    They don’t like their asses handed to them by a bunch of soccer moms and dads.

    Soon there will be an expose on 60 minutes about Gulen. Their staff was in Turkey about 5 weeks ago for background and research. Not sure if they are going to touch on his Charter school controvesy or heavily emphasize their brutality to the jailed journalists.

    Their censorship will never work in America. And Gulen politics or his brand of “tolerance” is only there to slip into interfaith dialog dinners.

  7. KDOSU: Thanks for the links, but I already visited them both the other day because there is a Gulen school in my hometown. That was a trip down memory lane on your last post. I remember Mehmet Ali Agca’s assasination attempt on Pope John Paul II, but I didn’t realise Pope Benedict petitioned the Turks concerning Hagia Sophia’s origins. The Church of the Holy Wisdom (Hagia Sophia) was once the greatest and largest church in the world, commissioned by the Roman Emperor Justinian in AD 532, who famously boasted of outdoing King Solomon. When the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed II took Constantinople (Istanbul) in 1453, the church was sadly converted into a mosque (Aya Sofia). A little shy of two years ago, I almost went to Istanbul with every intention of touring that church, but decided to visit family instead. I did however see the Ziggurat of Ur (Talil, Iraq), the birthplace of Abraham. This ziggurat was built for the worship of the Sumerian moon god Ur-Nammu, who curiously, several centuries later would morph into the Semitic moon god Allah, and be worshipped at the Kabba in Mecca. The moon god motif of the crescent moon would also follow this transformation process as evidenced by the Republic of Turkey’s flag and as BNI pointed out, by many other muslim polities throughout the world. Though i’m not insinuating any prophetic connection in what I am about to say, don’t you think it funny that the Emperor Justinian’s father was named Justin, the same moniker as our Gulen troll? Lol.

    BTW, you did a great service by putting out the fruits of your research on the Gulen Movement. More people, especially parents, need this vital intel. Thank you for that. It is much appreciated.

    “Cloven Hoof Posse!”

    “Whoop! Whoop!”

  8. Randy63ism
    The Gulen Movement is particularly media, PR and marketing savvy. They are also about outer appearances, this is why you frequently see local politicans touring their schools and that famouse photo op, they blast all over the Internet. They still circulate an ancient photo of Gulen when he met the previous Pope (John Paul) who was actually shot by a Turkish national.

    But they never refer to the CURRENT Pope Bartholmew because he has opening as Turkey to stop the butchering of Catholic priests and missionaries. The current pope also asked Turkey to remind the world that St. Hagia Sophia was a church before it was converted to a Mosque and later to a museum without a mention of the people who built it. (the Country is where Christianity was born NOT Jerusalem)

    Justin is one of the few that frequents the boards aimlessly defending the Gulen Movement by accusing others of “Islamophobia” “Bigotry” and “racism” funny thing is the Gulen Movment has had EEOC lawsuits against them for reverse discrimination.
    Do not under estimate the media power of the Gulen Movement.
    With that said they are vulnerable to many things: disorganization, not paying bills, treating non-moslem staff horrible, fuzzy financing with bond money (like a ponzi scheme)
    Soon it will all come crashing down on them.

    http://www.gulencharterschools.weebly.com (learn of lawsuits here)
    http://www.charterschoolwatchdog.com (from an ex American teacher who taught at these schools- look under the heading “teachers with guns”)

  9. JUSTIN: Do you like a little lysergic lemon flavored Kool Aid on occasion? Apparently to the point of substance abuse, or you’re just that gullible and stupid. Well it’s pretty damned obvious your statement of “Nobody buys it guys” is a bald-faced lie on your part or you wouldn’t be bothering with even visiting this blog. No, something far more primal is at play here, and I would be willing to wager that it has something to do with fear of our true numbers. Your fears in particular. It seems horizonparentsblogspot.com has ready made answers to all your pre-conceived notions. All in all, a subjectively stupid way of discerning reality. Take your little projection games elsewhere, you’ll only get eviscerated here, fool.

  10. P.S. BNI the Turkish Flag above is actual a symbol of Islam.

    Nice way of sneaking this into American children’s hands. These American children are learning the Turkish National Anthem, etc.,

    Gulen is preparing for his “Golden Generation” those that will inherit the restoration of the Ottoman Caliphate Universally. And only through knowing Turkish will they be able to find, peace, love and happiness (yuk, tell that to the slaughtered Kurds, Armenians, Alevis, Assyrians, Greeks, etc.,)

    To Faith Shaken:
    Turkey is no “friend” of the USA, they as a rule burn the American flag along with the Israeli flag. Turkey is the American tool and vice-versa Turkey uses the USA to appear as proxy into these moslem controlled countries. The funny thing is , other Islamic countries don’t relate to Gulen’s brand of Islam.

  11. Hey “Justin” (the way these Gulenists use American names, Spanish names and Jewish names is shameless)

    Look what we found
    http://horizonparentstruth.blogspot.com/

    Care to explain to American taxpayers why your Concept Schools in Ohio had to PAY back over $13,000 to the state because the schools felt that Dhimmis should pay for the families of your unqualified teacher’s H1-b Visas.
    Yes folks that is right, the schools are charging the h1-b Visas to American taxpayers, after all you should be blessed they are gracing your schools ..after all they are Turkish scholars (snickers, giggles) that follow 5th grade educated exiled Islamic Imam Muhammed Fethullah Gulen.

    Good luck “Justin” you will need it. America is done with you.

    BTW it isn’t “Islamophobia” it is Islam Awareness, we don’t want to be another Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Iraq, where Christians were the majority and democracy was established. Now they are all being over ridden with Moslems and killing / chasing the true indigenous people out of their lands.

    The Gulen Movement as a whole practices reverse discrimination against non-moslems and women. This is evident in their hiring practices and shuting out or not paying American contractors. Their curriculum is focused on Turkish culture (because American culture is beneath them) Their Turkish clubs and Turkish Olympiads are just like Hitler’s Youth.
    It is a disgrace that Americans have been paying for this.

    Justin you lose. America and her children wins. ” His stir esek Turkou”

  12. Justin or should we saw “Merhaba Jamil” your propaganda that you spread in the USA with your fake sites won’t work. Your Gulen owned media like “Today’s Zaman, Fountain Publishing, ERBU TV, etc., are mere extensions of the world according to Gulen. Hence this is why over 100 journalists lie in Turkish prison because they dare speak the truth about “Imam Ordusu” (Imam’s Army)
    Justin, you will NOT win in America, it is not your country and our children do not belong to Fetos or your Turkish Olympiads, Turkification processes. Soon you will need an Exit Visa-
    Here is the list of schools they are trying to open in the USA, the score is 35 pending
    74 DENIED. please alert your local school districts and show up to the meetings and confront these Education Jihadists.
    ACT NOW, SEND TO YOUR LOCAL SCHOOL BOARDS, CHURCHES, MEDIA, ACT FOR AMERICA, ETC.,

    http://gulencharterschools.weebly.com/proposed-gulen-charter-schools.html

    35 PROPOSED, 74 DENIED
    NOTE : Names of schools are changing in California it was Magnolia Science Academy now they are going under Pacific Technology. They don’t dare come into Fresno we will destroy them here.
    Merced and Bakersfield is VERY conservative and can be reasoned with.
    Proposed Gulen charter schools

    last updated December 11, 2011
    by C.A.S.I.L.I.P.S. – Citizens Against Special Interest Lobbying in Public Schools

    Two lists are given here. One is for schools that are still being planned and may open in the future. The other is for schools that never materialized and which appear to be inactive. Note that the list of currently operating schools is given on our companion site.

    “If 600 schools are bought this way in the United States – and that’s what the members of the Gulen movement are striving to do, – and if 200 students graduate from each one of these schools, then 120 thousand sympathizers of Turkey join the mainstream out there every year.”
    – from a column in Turkish newspaper Sabah, May 29, 2010. See Arizona Daily Star journalist Tim Steller’s blog for details.

  13. When the secular Government and pro western valued Turks were asking for help in not harboring this criminal they were dismissed as alarmist and intolerant. Today our most helpful ally in that region is all but lost to Islamists. When will the world realize that according to teachings of Islam You can”t have rule of law above Gods law. No government can rule over Muslims unless it follows Sheri-a laws. Islam is an un-bending, and un-yielding religion. There is no individualism. There are no woman’s rights. We are so naive it turns my stomach. As you all are familiar with the internal and external policies that politicians have put our country in, dealing with these type of organizations will be more difficult as time goes on. I see no political will in U.S government to stand up to extremists.

  14. Fetullah Gulen was given a greencard, probably under the auspices of the US government and CIA. During that time he was wanted in Turkey for plotting to overthrow the secular government, so we missed the chance to nip him in the bud. Thus, Turkey may be lost to us, and perhaps our own institutions if we aren’t careful.

  15. Currently the Gulen Movement is in a lot of legal battles in Illinois the Teacher’s Union is defending a lawsuit at CMSA (Chicago Math and Science Academy) there is a group of ex-American teachers that were abused by these schools – fired and replaced with foreign nationals under fraudulent h1-b Visas that are ALSO paid for by tax dollars (Ohio has made them pay this back). They have a class action pending.
    In Texas they are building a Harmony School of Political Science and Communications, because this movement believes they know how politics should be in America. The builders were stiffed out of money and there are liens pending. http://www.harmonyparenttruth.blogspot.com

    Bottom line,,,,,,,,,knowledge is power and he who controls knowledge has the power. Learn everything you can about this enemy.

    David; The Minnesota School of Science should never have opened they are catering to the influx of Somalians in that area and yes Ellison has been to Turkey before paid for by them. Murat Ergan is a fake and never has had anything to do with education, started a fake computer company to appear as a business man on the charter application, worked for wells fargo as a consultant. And a travel agency…….no doubt owned by Gulenists.

    FYI, those of you that are part of Act for America, or Tea party they are aware of this threat to American democracy. The business model they use is crippling local communities as they us their own group to create businesses that cater to the schools: Food Catering, furniture, uniforms, janitorial, etc., As Americans you ALL must learn to read 990 IRS tax statements for these so – called “non-profits” for free at http://www.guidestar.com if you look up Cosmos Foundation you will find they paid out over $7 million in travel expenses in the last 3 years – the amouund of money that goes to non-eudcational expenses is staggering like: PR, advertising, and Marketing This group is ALL about outer appearances, “awards” “olympiads” and other hoopla. but dig deeper.

    • Just when Minnesota was able to eliminate TiZA, now its Gulen! Think I will find the neighborhood newspaper for that area to see if anything is reported. The cabbie row at the airport was Somali driven. From a friend who knows many cab drivers, their push was to get the better paying fares.
      Read on line that persons are more likely to get presidential pardons if they have a contact in Congress, hence the ellison link.
      Its also time to drive by the place.
      I’ve bookmarked the web site.
      I remember the effort CAIR expended to discredit Somalis who told the truth about islam to the local police not so long ago.

      • BNI I stand corrected and so chastised for lumping the two together. A lesson to me to be more careful and accurate in my thinking. This is how character assassination gains traction.

      • David, it’s easy to confuse them. But at least TIZA was easy to spot. Gulen is committing Stealth Jihad pretending to be an American charter school which is much more dangerous.

      • Thanks for helping with that. I’m sending this thread to my daughter-in-law in Atlanta. We talked about this last night on the phone. Her church is involved in outreach/converting muslims in their area, an unsung effort by Christians.

  16. Sarastro- never never give up!!! this is YOUR country and democracy!
    There is a worldwide group of people comprised of all backgrounds and religions that are trying to educate the world on exiled Islamic Imam Muhammed Fethullah Gulen and his band of merry thieves. He has destroyed Turkey and his followers will do the same in every country if they are not stopped.

    Your best weapon is educating EVERYONE on this, there is an excellent book by Dr. Aland Mizell who has studied the Gulen Movement for over 30 years. It is called “Tactics of Islam, conquering America from within-the Fethullah Gulen Missionaries”
    This group uses Stealth Jihad, and will lie, cajole, blackmail, intimidate, threaten, to get one thing…………..The expansion of the Gulen Movement. if they are losing they create the straw man argument of Islamophobes or bigotry/racism. The Gulen Movement is a political and social movement under the guise of the myscticism of Sufism. It is more a cult

    We have a growing awareness every day, parents, teachers, Jews, Americans, Turks, Jews hate the Gulen Movement. Remember the pen is mightier than the sword, here are some ideas for you:
    1) Look up any schools in your community and make parents, local media and academia aware. They hate the Teachers Union and want to dismantle the American teaching model.
    http://www.charterschoolscandals.blogspot.com has the most current up to date list of schools. Remember, if students are not attending their schools and parents pull them out, the school recieves less funding from the government. As charter schools are publicly funded yet privately managed and are paid on a per student per year basis. Most Charter schools have to have over 200 students to even cut even.
    2) beware of their community “interfaith dialog” dinners or “Noah’s Pudding” evening, Turkish classes or Turkish cooking classes. Their is a multitude of Gulen foundations layered around each school here are a few: Gulen Institute, Rumi Forum, Rumi Forum of Cleveland, Sema Foundation, Raindrop Turkish House, Pacifica Institute, etc., plus a whole gaggle of Turkish American Friendship clubs and chamber of commerce. Watch for awards being given to local politicans and FREE trips to Turkey. THey are very active in Washington DC and Obama ridded the White House of the traditional “day of prayer” and substituted for a Ramadan dinner hosted by the Gulen Rumi Forum.
    3) Keep your eye open for their new charter school applications, they are liars and we have stopped their new schools in Hawaii, (Mokapu STEM School) Allentown Science Academy and Memphis, Tennessee. However in Knoxville, they were denied their application but 2 weeks later were allowed to proceed with 10 stipulation regarding transparency, non-Turks to be allowed on their school board selected by the county school district and limitations on how many foreign teachers they can hire. They have selected a site and it is an old church. These schools frequently select old Catholic/Christian schools or churches and shamelessly turn them into a Gulen – Science Academy here are a few :
    Lotus School of Excellence (Aurora, CO) was the Life Bridge Church
    Gateway Science Academy (St. Louis, MO) was a Catholic School
    Syracuse Science Academy (Syracuse, NY) was a Catholic School

  17. I read this post last night and lo and behold, there is a Gulen Charter School a mere five miles from where I am at right now in Tulsa Oklahoma. It’s called Dove Science Academy. I’ve known for a few years about it being somehow affiliated with muslims, I just never realised it was the Gulen Movement. I went on their website and noticed pictures of some faculty members looked Turkish and curiously, there is no mention of the names of any faculty members. Red flag here. All school websites list their faculty member’s names, except for Gulen affiliated schools. There is also a Dove Science Academy in Oklahoma City as well, set up by the same Gulenist parent organization, the Sky Foundation which also runs the Discovery school in Tulsa, as well as Tulsa’s Dove Academy. The website links to weebly.com provided by a couple of commenters above are excelent sources of intel on these Gulen Charter Schools. This is a most dangerous movement because it operates under the radar by applying stealth methods to jihad. I would encourage all to check out weebly.com for more specific info.

  18. If a Gulen school opens in your neighbourhood be sure to stop by to see what is happening there. Report every problem to authorities. Fire lane regulations. Under-sized doors. (Yes, there are standards.) Improper food handling. Incorrect light levels. Be creative. And of course, write letters to the editor of the local paper etc, encouraging folks to learn about Islam form its sources.

  19. I will have to contact these leads to create an investigative story for the Gates of Vienna blog. This really sickens me and it makes me wonder, where is the ACLU? I am sure if these charter schools were run by a Christian group the ACLU would be right there.

    I hope the next time these liberal loons from CBS ask questions they have someone much more qualified to answer, like Robert Spencer.

  20. Well, hell yeah, the little asslifters generally excel in math and science!! I mean, after all they are expected to grow up to be good adult asslifters, with full capabilities in math and science, enough to make good bombs to blow up us ****ing “infidels”, oh, AND themselves in the process also, if necessary, thereby assuring their entrance into Paradise and their multiple eternal virgin brides!!!………But, they have NO hidden agenda….very much like our US Asslifter-in-Chief has no hidden agenda!!…….What a ****ing foul stinking load of S*** AND funded by our tax dollars?!…..

  21. Concept managed Minnesota School of Science is operating in downtown Minneapolis, part of imam elllison’s district. Coincidence? Murat Eergen is board president. Anyone know about him?
    I ordered Gulens book, ‘the messenger of god’ to try to understand what he is about.

  22. There are Gulen schools in every continent except Antarctica.

    This link has some interesting information about the schools including the number of schools by country.
    http://turkishinvitations.weebly.com/academia—concerns-about-objectivity.html

    Also the statements by the ex-Gulenists about the indoctination methods used in the Netherlands were interesting.

    In Australia the Gulen schools achieve very high academic results also. The reason for this though is that they appear to act like selective schools in that the child has to pass academic tests before they are accepted. Plus there appears to be intensive coaching. It seems that they are only interested in the high achievers because these indoctrinated students are likely to be their societies future decision makers. Really creepy.

  23. Worse yet these clowns in the Gulen Movement (hizmet, or cemaat) are greasing the palms of politicians not just in the USA but worldwide. They are not without controversy, the Russians kicked them out so did Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan.

    This group are liars and incredible dangerous as they work (as their HocaEfendi Fethos instructs them) “into the arteries of the system until you reach all power centers.

  24. Gulen lives in a fortress in Pennsylvania with armed guards all around it, and helicopter landing pads and suspicious vehicles going in and out. He is above the law, nobody tries to deter him. He is an armed war-lord.
    This whole article has made me sick at heart, I feel helpless and heartless — nobody does anything to stop this onslaught and we sit around and write our useless comments. We are all like John Blackthorn at the end of the novel “Shogun” — building our ship thinking we can one day sail away, but this is just an idle dream — we will never sail away, and we will never get rid of Islam. it just gets worse and worse. We have no defenders, not one American man who will take up the cross, who will take up the gauntlet thrown down to us and fight against our enemies — our domestic enemies. In the Bible, when God wants something done, the answer is “Here am I God, send me”, but now the answer is “No, God, not me, let someone else do your bidding.” Nobody does anything against all these criminals who break our laws, they are allowed to wheel and deal to their hearts content. I feel betrayed, not so much by the Muslims as by those who are supposed to protect me. Where is our Braveheart, where are our heroes,
    there are none. We are a nation of cowardly sheep. We will be slaughtered.

  25. This is a large and seemingly comlicated article, but the answer is less complicated.
    What is our country anyway? Is our country the sum of its people and their evolved values?
    The answer is probably yes to most people in the West.
    But then the same will hold true when the increasing views and values of new citizens is added.
    The fact is that uncontrolled immigration of people holding incompatible views and beliefs will force uncontrolled change in a society where acceptance of all views is upheld by laws rather than what the islamic counties undrstand and have.
    Islam has a fixed view of society and their ideology does NOT ALLOWANY CHANGE.
    We do not have any objective intelligent leaders who can see what we have opened ourselves up to.
    We have built into our society the ability to have our values and way of life changed even if it violates our wishes and a writen constution.

  26. Oops , sorry . I didn’t take the time to watch all the videos. And I just saw your explanation after re-posting the video I thought i missed. You’ll have to delete it for me . Thanks

  27. Chum spread upon the waters attracts carp & suckers along with the trout. So do government subsidies. Ask yourself why F.G. left Turkey to come here. Did it have something to do with the old regime’s secularism and prosecution of Islamicists?

  28. I found some site of his where he’s doing religious debates, but his investigative site seems to be gone. Which is too bad, because I think he’s one of the best at digging into some of the little-known jihad activity going on in this country.

  29. I had no idea this was going on how in hell do you head this off and turn it around ! is Texas Perry one of there fans or any of the other Repubilcans running for prez we should know and I dam shure want to find out.

    • BLR, people have to know about it before they can fight it. And as you can see in the CBS video, our media will be of no help. Send this story to everyone you know. These schools are all around the country and still expanding.

  30. Makes you think ..” is this happening over HERE in the U.K.”,????? – well i just hope the Education Board are FULLY aware of whats going on in our Education System,somebody better start looking into this very seriously indeed,need your Answer Mr.Cameron,!!!!!!!!!

  31. the last part of the videos i could not hear properly becasue all i heard was no where to run by the supreme’s while i like that song, i could not hear what the reporters were saying. anyway, the investigations show that these guys are all frauds, and the money for their schools ought to be cut off along with even closing them down altogether. all of them are frauds and anyone who sends their kids to these schools are nuts.

  32. Did some searching and found some very negative comments about Gulen from people living in Turkey and some interesting info about their escape to Canada.

    The first comment, taken from Gulen Charter School in Montreal:

    Stephen said…
    I am a Canadian living in Turkey. The Gulen movement in Turkey from my observations is a dangerous organization with one aim, to control and rule the Turkish Republic, turning this country into a islamic republic, probably complete with Shira law. They are widely seen by the secular society within Turkey as having infiltrated the police, military and intelligence service and the judicary as well as having a big say in the AKP goverment of Turkey, to the extent of controlling policy. They have to some, including me, managed to control the prosecutors by getting any journalist that writes about their involvement in infiltrating and pulling the strings in the police, locked up and held without bail, some for up to 2 years now. The goverment claims this is an ongoing investigation having to do with the alleged “Ergenekon” case, in which hundreds of retired and serving senior military officers, journalists, academics and entertainers have been arrested, many without charge and having been jailed for up to 2 years, some have even died in custody because of lack of medical care. Don’t trust the Gulen organization, it is evil of the worst kind, disguised as enlightend organization.

  33. I saw an article about a year ago that Rick Perry was trying to have teachings of Islam in Texas schools. The ONLY reason he was elected for Gov. again was that Bill White who was running against him wanted to take away the guns.

  34. Thanks for posting this BNI. I’ve read about this Islamoscam before (I think Dr. Paul Williams has done some good work exposing it, among others), but probably most of the country still hasn’t got a clue, including a lot of the fool parents who send their kids to these sharia mills.

    Meanwhile, I know this belongs a few posts down but I found this

    http://romanticpoet.wordpress.com/2011/12/09/obama-administration-welcoming-islamic-group-to-washington-for-discussion-on-tolerance-who-is-the-oic/

    doing a search on that OIC resolution Hellary intends to help them ram down our throats next week. This does sound ominous, and my bet is the first ones they will go after are the blogs.

    Since we now know that CAIR is monitoring us, I have a few words for the thugs this being Friday night and they’ve probably just got their asses down out of the air:

    DROP DEAD. I will not ever shut up about the evils of Islam or the craven moral cowardice of virtually all muslims who haven’t the human decency to walk away from a vicious ideology that preaches murder of innocent people whose only “crime” is not joining its ranks.

    • RRA, Williams is where I first learned of Gulen, but he doesn’t seem to be online anymore.

      Anyone attending an OIC conference should be tarred and feathered. Hillary is a paid shill for the muslims.Obama needs to be in jail awaiting trial for treason.

  35. the parents must take matters into their own hands and get these schools closed and keep bugging the FBi to continue the investigation and the file lawsuits to have the money repaid

  36. Do these miserable excuses for humans ever sleep.They gather in the dark and silence and set their pans into action..They are persistent and well funded that is for sure. As stated before parents must keep their eyes and ears open. Appear at monthly school board meeting and bring it to the attention of the audience. The word must be spread. People with courage must take a step forward. Call it for what it is. Politically correct is a of statement in essence saying shut your mouth.Please young people fight.Help to rid this country of this enemy within.

  37. They may follow the curriculum in general but anytime mustards are involved you an be sure their is a high level of indoctrination into islam, whitewashing of islam and history, constant pressure on young minds to accept the supremacy of islam, constant pressure on the children to grow to hate their country , their culture and Jews. And there is always some (usually illegal) avenue opened up for muslims to reap the monetary rewards of the American taxpayer through deceitful practices. Nothing new here.

    • This organization which operates 130 charter schools in the United States has been violating the civil rights of American teachers and administrators for the past eleven years by blatantly ignoring federal age, nationality, and gender equal opportunity laws. Further, their practices have supplanted American jobs by bringing in H1-B visa holders instead of hiring qualified and available American teachers and administrators, and all the while using American tax dollars to do so. The American tax payers are not only losing jobs, but are also required to pay for H1-B visa fees and in many instances graduate degrees for the foreign teachers and administrators.

      With unemployment rates still at an all time high, let’s ask our government officials why they are still allowing the influx of H1-B visa employees to take American jobs when the United States has a wealth of qualified and credentialed American teachers and administrators
