The Gülen Harmony Charter Schools.
These schools on American soil are deliberately targeting our public school students and indoctrinating them into an anti-American, pro-Islam thinking. Uzbekistan and the Russian government, weary of the movement’s activities in majority Muslim regions of the Russian federation, have banned not only the Gülen schools but all activities of the entire Nur sect in their country.
Currently, Rick Perry (Texas) is harboring 36 Gülen Harmony Charter Schools. There are about 140 Gülen schools spread out over 25 states. One school in Philadelphia receives$3 million annually in taxpayer money.
Who is Fetullah Gülen or the Gülen Movement?
Born in Erzurum, Turkey, in 1942, Fethullah Gülen is an imam who considers himself a prophet. Gülen was a student and follower of Sheikh Sa’id-i Kurdi (1878-1960), also known as Sa’id-i Nursi, the founder of the Islamist Nur (light) movement. After Turkey’s war of independence, Kurdi demanded, in an address to the new parliament, that the new republic be based on Islamic principles. He turned against Atatürk [former President of Turkey] and his reforms and against the new modern, secular, Western republic.
In 1998, Gülen departed for the United States, reportedly to receive medical treatment for diabetes. However, his absence also enabled Gülen to escape questioning on his indictment in 2000 for allegedly promoting insurrection in Turkey in a series of secretly-recorded sermons. Since his voluntary exile, Gülen has resided on a large, rural estate in eastern Pennsylvania, together with about 100 followers, who guard him and tend to his needs. These servants are educated men who wear suits and ties and do not look like traditional Islamists in cloaks and turbans. They follow their hocaefendi’s orders and even refrain from marrying until age fifty per his instructions. When they do marry, their spouses are expected to dress in the Islamic manner, as dictated by Gülen himself. It is from his U.S. base that Gülen has built his fame and his international empire.
Behind Turkey’s transformation to a Islamic state has been not only the impressive AKP political machine, but also a shadowy Islamist sect led by the mysterious hocaefendi (master lord) Fethullah Gülen; the sect often bills itself as a proponent of tolerance and dialogue but works toward purposes quite the opposite. Today, Gülen and his backers (Fethullahcilar, Fethullahists) not only seek to influence government but also to become the government.
Turkey has over 85,000 active mosques, one for every 350 citizens—compared to one hospital for every 60,000 citizens—the highest number per capita in the world and, with 90,000 imams, more imams than doctors or teachers.
Gülen now helps set the political agenda in Turkey using his followers in the AKP as well as the movement’s vast media empire, financial institutions and banks, business organizations, an international network of thousands of schools, universities, student residences (isikevis), and many associations and foundations.
The Gülen movement is an international civic society movement inspired by the teachings of Turkish Islamic theologian Fethullah Gülen. His teachings about hizmet (altruistic service to the “common good”) have attracted a large number of supporters in Turkey, Central Asia and increasingly in other parts of the world. The movement is mainly active in education and interfaith (and intercultural) dialogue, however has also aid initiatives and investments on media, finance, and health. One of the main characteristics of the movement is that it is faith-based but not faith-limited.
The core of Gülen’s network is his educational institutions. His school network is impressive. Nurettin Veren, Gülen’s right-hand man for thirty-five years, estimated that some 75 percent of Turkey’s two million preparatory school students are enrolled in Gülen institutions. He controls thousands of top-tier secondary schools, colleges, and student dormitories throughout Turkey, as well as private universities, the largest being Fatih University in Istanbul. Outside Turkey, his movement runs hundreds of secondary schools and dozens of universities in 110 countries worldwide.
Gülen’s aim is not altruistic: His followers target youth in the eighth through twelfth grades, mentor and indoctrinate them in the isikevi, educate them in the Fethullah schools, and prepare them for future careers in legal, political, and educational professions in order to create the ruling classes of the future Islamist, Turkish state. Taking their orders from Fethullah Gülen, wealthy followers continue to open schools and isikevi in what Sabah columnist Emre Aköz called “the education jihad.”
Beyond Turkey, the Fethullahist schools also serve as fertile recruiting grounds. In his Institut d’Etudes Politiques doctoral thesis on Gülen schools in Central Asia, Bayram Balci, a French scholar of Turkish origin, wrote, “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.’” Balci explained, “He wants to revive the link between state, religion, and society.” The schools of Gülen’s Nur movement in Central Asia have worked to reestablish Islam in a region largely secularized by decades of Soviet control. Balci explained, “The aim of the cemaat is to educate and influence future national elites, who will speak English and Turkish and who will one day prove their good intentions towards Fethullahists and towards Turkey.” Several countries in the region have taken steps against Gülen’s educational institutions because of such suspicions.
Gülen aired on Turkish television. “You must move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers. You must wait for the time when you are complete and conditions are ripe, until we can shoulder the entire world and carry it.” “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 … Now, I have expressed my feelings and thoughts to you all in confidence. Know that when you leave here — as you discard your empty juice boxes, you must discard the thoughts and the feelings that I expressed here.”
If Perry is elected, don’t worry about the school issues. ISMAILIAN Aga Khan (AKDN…Aga Khan Development Network) and Gülen Harmony Charter Schools would take care of funding for the schools in the whole U.S. (and of Islamic Doctrine).
Never forget, this attack was done in the name of ALLAH.
10 years after 9/11, have we changed?…yes we have a Muslim born FÜHRER…?”INSANITY” Islam is winning!!!… and building a VICTORY MOSQUE at Ground Zero.
Islam and Sharia Law are coming to America!!
America is already threatened to become an Islamic country.
First of all most Americans do not understand what is happening. They also do not understand that their own Government is turning the USA into an Islamic nation. If anyone is going to stop the Islamification of America it will be too little, too late. Some Americans will realize this eventually, and then some of them may start rebelling, burning down mosques in their neighborhoods, driving out or killing Muslims. Those people who try to stop it in their own neighborhoods will be shot or jailed.
And if it finally does becomes plain to the people what is going on, by that time Islam will be so entrenched in the USA that the people will look to the American Government to save them – but it won’t because it’s the Government that caused it to happen in the first place.
The vast majority of people will do nothing at all except “go along to get along” – either convert to Islam or become Dhimmis under Sharia Law.
And that is how the US is going to become an Islamic country.
Islam is NOT a religion, it’s a Radical-Ideology!
Those pieces of CRAP were dancing in the Streets.
You want to see Islam in practice? Just see the video below. These people are just pure Evil!
Fethullah Gulen’s ‘New Islamic World Order’ Runs no less than 140 US schools
New Harmony School of Political Science for Austin,
TX, the Gulen Movement … According to Bayram Balci, a Turkish scholar, the Gulen schools seek to expand “the Islamization of Turkish nationality and the Turification of Islam” in order to bring about a universal caliphate ruled by Islamic law.
The ‘Turification of Islam’ in an earlier article on the group of school showed that less qualified teachers were imported from Turkey and paid significantly more than the American teachers.
With the Turks there is a two fold thing there is the Islamic element and then there is the supremacist element. So if their schemers are making a move on America ~ they would not only be looking for Islam to be dominant and anyone who is Muslim to be in control or wield controlling influence they would want to make sure that that those who wield power within authority ~ or those who are in position to take control; are Turkish. It goes back to the mental euphoria from the days of the Ottoman Empire and its control over many Muslim nations.
Here’s Fethullah Gülen own words a secret sermon for the Islamic takeover of the secular Turkish state:
“You must move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers … until the conditions are ripe, they [the followers] must continue like this. If they do something prematurely, the world will crush our heads, and Muslims will suffer everywhere, like in the tragedies in Algeria, like in 1982 [in] Syria … like in the yearly disasters and tragedies in Egypt. The time is not yet right. You must wait for the time when you are complete and conditions are ripe, until we can shoulder the entire world and carry it … 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… More…
The Gülen Movement: A New Islamic World Order?
Yet others have branded Gülen a wolf in sheep’s clothing and a modern day Ayatollah Khomeini. CBN News recently took a closer look at the the life of the reclusive imam who directs a global Islamic movement from the Pennsylvania mountains. More…
Aga Khan, governor to sign UT pact with Mideast university.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry plans to host a private dinner followed by fireworks near Austin on Saturday to honor the Aga Khan, a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad celebrating his 50th year as the spiritual leader of a Muslim sect.
Earlier in the day, the leaders are expected to be on hand as the University of Texas signs an agreement with Aga Khan University, which has campuses in Pakistan and other countries, fostering student and teacher exchanges between the institutions.
Khan, a wealthy, Harvard-educated businessman and philanthropist, leads the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims, an offshoot of the Shiite branch of Islam, claiming 12 million to 16 million believers in 25 countries including tens of thousands in Texas.
Perry, 58, and Khan, 71, struck up an improbable friendship nearly a decade ago, resulting in a UT program exposing schoolteachers to Muslim beliefs and culture.
The jet-setting Khan grew up in Kenya and lives in France and owns hundreds of race horses. Perry was born and raised in West Texas before earning a degree at Texas A&M University.
In 2000, Perry, then lieutenant governor, visited the Aga Khan in Paris during a family trip to Europe.
Two years later, Perry and the Aga Khan visited during the opening of the Ismaili Jamatkhana and Center built in Sugar Land near Houston and at an Austin dinner hosted by Perry.
The Aga Khan Development Network subsequently funded the UT program, which has introduced 80 Texas schoolteachers to Muslim history and culture; 15 teachers have toured the Middle East, Europe and Asia.
In 2006, Perry visited a Pakistan relief center financed by the network. And last year, Perry looked at an unfinished Ismaili center in Dubai that a travel mate described as an architectural and cultural wonder that the Aga Khan is expected to replicate, to a degree, in Houston.
Eric Bearse, an outside adviser to Perry, said Saturday’s “golden jubilee” event at the Texas Disposal Systems Exotic Game Ranch and Pavilion in Buda is “an opportunity for His Highness to be in the presence of a vibrant Ismaili community in Texas as well as to be with his friend, the governor.”
Perry and his wife, Anita, will dine with the religious leader at a downtown hotel tonight.
Shahed Amanullah of Austin, editor-in-chief of altmuslim.com, said the Aga Khan has a solid reputation among Muslims because of his good works, partly through the development network. The network spends $350 million a year on economic, social and cultural projects concentrated in South Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
“There are a lot of non-Ismaili Muslims around the world who wish they had a leader that is as organized and as visionary,” Amanullah said
Perry, who is a member of a Methodist church, and the Aga Khan emphasize the need for the Western world to understand Eastern values and vice versa. After the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the Aga Khan said differences between Muslim-dominated countries and the Christian-dominant West don’t reflect the clash of civilizations so much as clashes of ignorance.
Neither Perry’s office nor members of the Ismaili community said who is paying for Saturday’s invitation-only party nor did they divulge who will attend it. Perry spokesman Robert Black said it would not be financed by the state or from economic development funds.
About 20,000 to 30,000 people are expected to hear the Aga Khan on Sunday in San Antonio. His U.S. schedule also includes stops in Georgia, Illinois and California.
Noor Jehan, whose family owns an Austin dry-cleaning business, intends to spend the weekend in San Antonio for the jubilee. “It’s a big, big occasion for us,” Jehan said.
Asked if Ismaili Muslims liken the Aga Khan’s standing to the stature of the pope for Catholics, Jehan said. “He’s not a pope, who’s elected by cardinals. The Aga Khan is not elected by anybody. … He is a very special leader.”
Jehan was referring to the Aga Khan becoming Imam or spiritual leader of the Shia Imami Ismaili Muslims in July 1957, succeeding his grandfather, Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah Aga Khan III, a former president of the League of Nations.
Born in Geneva, Switzerland, Dec. 13, 1936
Grew up in Nairobi, Kenya
Attended Swiss boarding school before Harvard University, where he graduated with honors with a degree in Islamic history
Succeeded his grandfather, Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah Aga Khan, as the Ismaili Imamat at the age of 20 on July 11, 1957, becoming the 49th hereditary spiritual leader (Imam) of the Shia Ismaili Muslims
Wealth reportedly exceeds $1 billion
Owns two jets, stud farms and hundreds of race horses
Very interesting facts on Sarah Palin Whether you’re a Democrat, Independent, or Republican… READ TO THE VERY END! VERY ENLIGHTENING!!! The last 45 of my 66 years I’ve spent in a commercial fishing town in Alaska. I understand Alaska politics but never understood national politics well until this last year. Here’s the breaking point: Neither side of the Palin controversy gets it. It’s not about persona, style, rhetoric, it’s about doing things. Even Palin supporters never mention the things that I’m about to mention here.
1. Democrats forget when Palin was the Darling of the Democrats, because as soon as Palin took the Governor’s office away from a fellow Republican and tough SOB, Frank Murkowski, she tore into the Republican’s “Corrupt Bastards Club” (CBC) and sent them packing. Many of them are now residing in State housing and wearing orange jump suits The Democrats reacted by skipping around the yard, throwing confetti and singing, “la la la la” (well, you know how they are). Name another governor in this country that has ever done anything similar.
2. Now with the CBC gone, there were fewer Alaskan politicians to protect the huge, giant oil companies here. So she constructed and enacted a new system of splitting the oil profits called “ACES.” Exxon (the biggest corporation in the world) protested and Sarah told them, “don’t let the door hit you in the stern on your way out.” They stayed, and Alaska residents went from being merely wealthy to being filthy rich. Of course, the other huge international oil companies meekly fell in line. Again, give me the name of any other governor in the country that has done anything similar.
3. The other thing she did when she walked into the governor’s office is she got the list of State requests for federal funding for projects, known as “pork.” She went through the list, took 85% of them and placed them in the “when-hell-freezes-over” stack. She let locals know that if we need something built, we’ll pay for it ourselves. Maybe she figured she could use the money she got from selling the previous governor’s jet because it was extravagant. Maybe she could use the money she saved by dismissing the governor’s cook (remarking that she could cook for her own family), giving back the State vehicle issued to her, maintaining that she already had a car, and dismissing her State-provided security force (never mentioning – I imagine – that she’s packing heat herself). I’m still waiting to hear the names of those other governors.
4. Now, even with her much-ridiculed “gosh and golly” mannerism, she also managed to put together a totally new approach to getting a natural gas pipeline built which will be the biggest private construction project in the history of North America. No one else could do it although they tried. If that doesn’t impress you, then you’re trying too hard to be unimpressed while watching her do things like this while baking up a batch of brownies with her other hand.
5. For 30 years, Exxon held a lease to do exploratory drilling at a place called Point Thompson. They made excuses the entire time why they couldn’t start drilling. In truth they were holding it like an investment. No governor for 30 years could make them get started. Then, she told them she was revoking their lease and kicking them out. They protested and threatened court action. She shrugged and reminded them that she knew the way to the court house. Alaska won again.
6. President Obama wants the nation to be on 25% renewable resources for electricity by 2025. Sarah went to the legislature and submitted her plan for Alaska to be at 50% renewable by 2025. We are already at 25%. I can give you more specifics about things done, as opposed to style and persona. Everybody wants to be cool, sound cool, look cool. But that’s just a cover-up. I’m still waiting to hear from liberals the names of other governors who can match what mine has done in two and a half years. I won’t be holding my breath. By the way, she was content to return to Alaska after the national election and go to work, but the haters wouldn’t let her. Now these adolescent screechers are obviously not scuba divers. And no one ever told them what happens when you continually jab and pester a barracuda. Without warning, it will spin around and tear your face off. Shoulda known better.
You have just read the truth about Sarah Palin that sends the media, along with the Democrat party, into a wild uncontrolled frenzy to discredit her. I guess they are only interested in skirt chasers, dishonesty, immoral people, liars, womanizers, murderers, and bitter ex-presidents’ wives. So “You go, Girl.” I only wish the men in Washington had your guts, determination, honesty, and morals. I rest my case. Only FOOLS listen to the biased media. Still think this Sarah is a wimp? Guess again. Both political parties are scared to death of her. By Dewie Whetsell, Alaskan Fisherman. As posted in comments on Greta’s article referencing the MOVEON ad about Sarah Palin.
Ismailis and Taqiyya
Ismailis believe in the Shiite doctrine of taqiyya, which means to hide one’s true religious beliefs if there is a risk of persecution. This doctrine has been pivotal to the survival of Ismaili groups since they have been small minorities in many countries and empires hostile to them.
Ismaili Muslims, a group that numbers between 30,000 to 40,000 in Houston where the organization is headquartered, are not predisposed to any political party, but Perry has seen support from Texas Ismailis as well as Muslims from the bigger Sunni and Shia traditions.
Perry has signed off on a couple pieces of legislation they lobbied for, including halal regulations. (Tuesday August 12, 2003, ceremonial signing session of HB-470 TX Halal Law)
Perry is a friend of the Aga Khan, the religious leader of the Ismailis, a sect of Shia Islam that claims a reported 15 to 20 million adherents worldwide. Sprouting from that friendship are at least two cooperation agreements between the state of Texas and Ismaili institutions, including a far-reaching program to educate Texas schoolchildren about Islam.
The timing of this call to prayer and fasting couldn’t be more telling. Why is Texas Gov. Rick Perry (Republican) calling Americans to prayer and fast on what happens to be the first day of the muslim fasting month of ramadan? Surely, this cannot simply be a coincidence!?
Anyone who aligns with Muslims in any form is a traitor to the free world!
Never forget, this attack was done in the name of ALLAH.
9 years later we have a Muslim raised Commander in Chief and building a VICTORY MOSQUE at Ground Zero.
Islam and Sharia Law are coming to America!!
The American media says there is a wave of hatred for Islam. What is really happening, is that we are finally reaching many, and many have educated themselves to the TRUE nature of Islam, Qur’an and Shariah. People are tired of the politically correct shoving things down their throats, and bashing them on the head with “the religion of peace”, and its propaganda.
Islam treats over half a BILLION women worse than we treat our domesticated animals, and we tolerate it. You want to see Islam in practice? Just do a search on beheading. These people are just pure Evil!
Islam is NOT a religion, it’s a Radical-Ideology!
Fort Lauderdale, FL – Today it was confirmed that Bill McCollum has been using the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) as his own personal piggy bank at the expense of Marco Rubio and down ballot candidates in the general election. The RPOF’s latest federal campaign finance account, which funds get-out-the vote efforts, voter registration drives and staff salaries has dwindled to less than $54,000 while Bill McCollum’s insider friends and Tallahassee powerbrokers at RPOF have funneled nearly $4 million dollars to Bill McCollum in a hotly contested primary, $750,000 of that coming just last week.
“The Republican Party of Florida, directed by Bill McCollum and his allies, has completely mismanaged this primary election. In their desperation to defeat me and hang onto power, they undemocratically cleared the field of other candidates and have since used the Republican Party as Bill McCollum’s personal piggy bank funneling close to $4 million to his campaign at the expense of Marco Rubio and our legislative candidates,” said Scott at a campaign stop in Jacksonville today.
Without the First Amendment, we would not have Col. Allen West.. Without Col. Allen West, we may not have the First Amendment..
Every person in the US should turn their eyes to this man. Principled, honest, kind, highly intelligent, integrity, values humanity, “FEARLESS”, wise, understands strategy, comprehends the core issues, understands that everyone needs to be productive and that handouts cripple the soul, and above all that, he is trustworthy. You don’t find an individual of this caliber everyday.
We need real Patriots like Allen West. But I’m sure the GOP will run the same old same old…Romney, Huckabee, Gingrich.
We need leaders who can inspire their people to hang in there during the difficult times. Color = irrelevant, Principle = highly prized, Lt Colonel Allen West = premier leader
