Re: “Turkish charter operators under scrutiny

Who really practices McCartyism and tells his cult followers to do the same? Just Google Zaman Gulen we can sue this is our legal right.

Here is my video response to that article and to Mr. F. Gulen himself.

Re: “Turkish charter operators under scrutiny

FYI in the words of Ahmet Sik as he was arrested for writing about a book Gulen he had shouted, If you touch him you burn." This goes for anyone who deals with Gulen's schools, interfaith dialog, and his Rumi Foum in D.C. This even goes for our politicians here in the USA. We are watching them also. Anyone remember Chad Causey from Arkansas? Look at what this group did for his career.

Re: “Turkish charter operators under scrutiny

@ bob_carahan

We all know about the Turkish laws and how easy it is to place a label on someone who has a difference of opinion or point of view in Turkey. Under article 301 you will be deemed a terrorist for having an opposed view or idea of the government or Fethullah Gulen. Ergenokon is just a label and does not really exist. Under your article 7/2 of the anti terror law you can be charged with conspiracy against the government or spreading a separatists propaganda for doing so. (singing or even speaking Kurdish)

So to put your money where mouth is just a simple or yes answer will suffice. Will you be willing to put a video together with you holding the Kurdish Flag and sing their anthem and then hold the American flag and say the pledge of allegiance? You do after all hold duel citizenship so there should be no harm in that. Please take the challenge and post it up you tube and get back to me.

Re: “Turkish charter operators under scrutiny

The concern in this article is the schools use of tax money and keeping that money within Turkish only business and suppliers and services. The concern is also about that money being funneled back to Turkey. While the so-called happy and satisfied parents of these schools come to this board to defend the school and even mentioned how excited they were to go to Turkey on discounted trips and even the Turkish Olympiads.

Your children and many others from all over the world from the Gulen Charter Schools compete to sing and dance and recite poetry under the Turkish flag and language. However if a child who is a citizen of Turkey goes to another country like these children did in 2007 World Music Festival in California sang in another language under another flag upon there return to Turkey they were interrogated and placed in an adult prison for five years. Currently in Turkey there is about 7,000 children in prison when they should be going to school. Imagine if the USA told children they could no longer speak Spanish as minority. Well, this is what the Gulen schools do in Turkey to children there under there own laws. So if a Turkish child came to America and participated in the Pledge of the Allegiance at baseball game or sang old glory or the American National Anthem they could be slammed in prison for years. It has already been established that Gulen followers controls the police the judiciary.


The Gulen Movement in the USA also has one of the largest lobbying group in D.C called the Rumi Forum. A lot of that money collected from these schools goes back into schmoozing our own politicians to influence and change laws. In Texas they greased there way into getting bond financing which gives them now almost unlimited money from another tax payer source. Harmony is currently building another school in Austin called the Harmony School of Political Science for middle and high school. The contract was given to Solidarity Construction which is another Turkish owned contractor.



Just connect the dots and follow the money to see how these schools have already affected laws in Texas and in this country. Where the money is going, and what laws will be changed next? It would be wise to keep an eye on your politicians.


In Arizona they donated heavy to Tom Horne's campaign and look at what he is already doing to minority teachers and students there. Yet Sonoran Science Academy (Harmony's Sister School) is left untouched in the auditing of teachers with accents. As well the ban on ethnic studies. The Gulen schools are deeply engrained with our law makers and politicians.


Do some research into this and then ask yourself where is the fairness in all of this? Are all things really being equal?

Re: “Turkish charter operators under scrutiny

When you support these schools you are also supporting human right violations. Thats right when that money goes back to Turkey with 70% of its police force being Gulenists these thugs will do anything for Baba Gulen and to keep everything Turkish. This includes the Turkish Olympiads when your child and many others from around the world get to sing and dance under the Islamic flag of Turkey. But if a Turkish child sings and dances in another language and under a different flag they get to spend 5 years in adult prison.


This is a warning not to send your children this year to Turkey.
