gulen 60 minutes

Fethullah Gulen is an Islamic organization focused on building charter schools in the US  to indoctrinate an entire generation using US taxpayer dollars. Their schools have been raided by the FBI, but that hasn’t stopped Leslie Stahl of 60 Minutes from doing a glowing piece on these Islamic supremacists.

The fact is that Gulen left Turkey in March 1998 citing health reasons. At the time, he was being investigated for plotting to overthrow the secular republic to replace it with an Islamic state (he had been imprisoned for six months in 1971 under a similar charge).

Gülen: ‘Explode yourselves like a bomb against the US’ Daily Sabah, December 24, 2014 (thanks to Todd via  The Religion of Peace)

It has been discovered that Fethullah Gülen, the leader of the Gülen Movement who claims to base his movement on dialogue and tolerance amongst different religions, has previously made radical remarks encouraging Muslims to destroy “infidels.”

Gülen’s call for taking violent action against non-Muslims can be traced to the voice recording of a sermon which he preached in the 1980s following the 1980 coup d’etat, when he left the city of İzmir and traveled to different cities in Anatolia.

Allegedly preaching about the significance of Jerusalem for Muslims, Gülen can be heard crying and criticizing himself and all Muslims for failing to protect the holy city of Jerusalem and Masjid al-Aqsa Mosque.

“A believer should be like a bomb even if the United States of America opposes him/her! He/she should continue by exploding and smashing the head of the infidel!” Gülen screamed, accompanied by a mixture of lamenting and screaming from the audience. He encouraged the screams by saying that the voice of believers should move heaven and earth, and told them to roar.

Gülen then cursed those who did not stand against the occupation of Jerusalem and Masjid al-Aqsa and told his audience to take immediate action by voicing the issue to everyone, including deputies.

In the recording, Gülen can be heard as saying “We will ruin the plots of America and reveal their true side”. These are particularly remarkably radical and controversial sentiments given he has been living in the U.S. in self-imposed exile since 1999.

“We will turn the U.S.’s games upside down in the next 5-10 years,” Gülen is heard saying in the sermon.

A Turkish criminal court issued an arrest warrant last week on Friday for Gülen following a request filed earlier by Istanbul’s chief public prosecutor. It was reported that sufficient concrete evidence has been found, proving Gülen’s involvement in leading a criminal organization and crimes including forgery, fabricating evidence and forming an alleged crime syndicate to overtake the sovereignty of the state.

Here are the Gulen schools in the US:

The following map was made in March 2011; please see this page for more current maps.

Twelve new Gulen charter schools are opening in the fall of 2013.  Except for the new one in South Carolina (the first in that state) all are spinoffs from existing schools or school chains.  Eleven of the 12 were approved by state-level boards or alternative authorizers instead of local school boards.  In contrast, Gulen charter school applications reviewed by local school boards in the latest cycle were nearly all rejected.

    Classic. Of course we dont question the authenticity of the videos but automatically believe them because we are a bunch of marginalist Gulen haters who will do anything to discredit him. And this is happening in the 21st century! GET a life people there are things other than Gulen. I also wonder who funds your anti gulen campaign too. Who gives money for this? you are not producing any content but black propaganda. Ridiculous!

    • Ozgur Cengiz

      It’s not defamation if it’s true and everything is pulled from American credible news sources not trash news like Gulen owned Today’s Zaman. The rest are government documents like your school applications with forged signatures and lies. There is no strategic defamation of your hocaefendi, simply put – Americans don’t want you in their country teaching their children. You know nothing about education but a lot about stealing government grants intended for education. Get out before you are thrown out, Erdogan has meetings in texas with your cronies that you padded pockets with $$ like Annise Parker, and loser Shiela Jackson Lee, et al. Gulen inspired schools in the USA are a danger to American children https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IANWjB7jQIA

      • Charlie Tangov

        Haters gonna hate bro.

        • Ozgur Cengiz

          and parasites that are NOT American like the Gulen Movement gonna keep trying to steal from America. Why don’t you try and fix Turkey? Oh that is right we don’t want you in Turkey either.

    • Ozgur Cengiz

      What videos? Feto’s hate speech against the Vatican or telling his puppet followers like Charlie Tangov to make like a “bomb” and explode against the USA. You really believe Gulen is in the USA by mistake then you are stupid brainwashed Hizmet., Gulen was brought to the USA for a very specific reason. You are just the tool that follows him.

  • Charlie Tangov

    See here how this is a strategic defamation campaign: http://ejeps.fatih.edu.tr/docs/articles/122.pdf

    • Ozgur Cengiz

      nothing strategic about truth, Gulen had to flee Turkey and cannot return. You won’t be able to return either once Americans are done with you criminals stealing their tax money.
