FBI Launches investigation of Gulen and his movement


Fethullah Gulen, dubbed “the most dangerous Islamist on planet earth,” is now under investigation by the F.B.I. for his network of charter schools throughout the country.

The 140-plus charter schools, according to a newly released federal document, may serve as madrassahs where students are “brain-washed” to serve as proponents of the New Islamic World Order that Gulen purportedly seeks to create.

The Gulen schools, which have been established in nearly every state in the union, bear such innocuous names as the Magnolia Science Academy, the Sweetwater Branch Academy, the Science Academy of Chicago, the Pioneer Charter School, the Horizon Science Academy, the Noble Academy, the Dove Science Academy, the Bluebonnet Learning Center, and the Beehive Science and Technology Academy.

Gulen, who fled his native Turkey in 1998 upon being charged with seeking to overthrow the secular Turkish government, presently resides within a mountain fortress in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.

Court records show that Gulen has amassed assets in excess of $25 billion.

The federal investigation, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer, centers on charges that employees of the charter schools – – including the Truebright Science Academy in Philadelphia and the Young Scholars of Central Pennsylvania Charter School in State College – – are required to kick-back 60% of their salaries to Gulen’s Hizmet or Service.

The kick-backs are allegedly used to establish more schools – – all of which are funded by U.S. taxpayers. Truebright alone receives more than $3 million annually from the Philadelphia School District for its 348 pupils. Tansu Cidav, the acting chief executive officer, maintained that Truebright is a regular public school. “Charter schools are public schools,” he said. “We follow the state curriculum.”

Federal officials declined to comment on the nationwide inquiry, which is being coordinated by prosecutors in Pennsylvania’s Middle District in Scranton. A former leader of the parents’ group at the Young Scholars school confirmed to the Inquirer that federal authorities had interviewed her.

Another concern for the federal investigators is the number of H1B visas obtained by the Gulen network for militant Gulen supporters to act as teachers and administrators.

Gulen schools are among the nation’s largest users of the H1B visas

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). The Harmony School, a Gulen-related institution, has applied for more H1B visas than any educational institution in the country.

H1B visas are supposed to be issued to attract foreign workers with math, science, and technology skills to jobs for which there are shortages of qualified American workers.

Ruth Hocker, former president of the parents’ group at the Young Scholars of Central Pennsylvania Charter School in State College, began to raise questions about the Gulen school in State College when popular, certified American teachers were replaced by uncertified Turkish men who often spoke limited English and were paid higher salaries.

“They would tell us they couldn’t find qualified American teachers,” Mrs. Hocker told the Inquirer.

This argument, she added, makes no sense in the hometown of Penn State University, which produces thousands of certified teachers every year in all subject areas.

Other school parents have testified to the federal investigators that uncertified teachers on H1B visas are moved from one charter school to another when their “emergency” teaching credentials expire and point to a persistent pattern of sudden turnovers of Turkish business managers, administrators, and board members.

A principal aim of the Gulen schools, a federal official said, is to foster political support and goodwill toward Turkey, which is governed by the Justice and Development Party (AKP), a party created by Gulen from his 45-acre estate in Pennsylvania.

Students, according to sources, are “brain-washed” to support the AKP and to take part in Gulen’s grandiose plan to restore the Ottoman Empire. the pro-Islamic prime minister, whose government recently detained journalists after they alleged that Gulen followers were infiltrating security agencies.

Under the AKP, Turkey has transformed from a secular state into an Islamic country with 85,000 active mosques

Under the AKP, Turkey has transformed 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.

Despite the rhetoric of European Union accession, Turkey – thanks in large part to Gulen and his “moderate” Islamic movement has transferred its alliance from Europe and the United States to Russia and Iran. It has moved toward friendship with Hamas, Hezbollah, and Syria and created a pervasive anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, and anti-America animus throughout the populace.

In a related investigation of the Gulen U.S. schools, state auditors in Ohio have discovered 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 an integral part of Gulen’s legal argument that won him a special permanent residency visa as an “alien of extraordinary ability,” despite the fact that the Turkish pasha lacks a high school diploma

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, in other to ward off investigators, now insists that neither he nor his movement have an affiliation with the charter schools.

The investigation of Gulen was prompted, in part, by reports from this reporter that appeared on Canada Free Press.

In response to the reports, Gulen’s followers have established a website called the Goose Network which depicts this reporter as Adolph Hitler.

Wonder how Gulen amassed more than $25 billion in assets and who is really behind his effort to create a New Islamic World Order?

  1. IT sure looks like a giant fifth column to me. It’s no surprise to me that Izzlam is using freedom and democracy to destroy our freedom and democracy. What fools we are as a nation we in essence our paying for our own demise.

  2. My, my … a can of worms !! Whenever I see something like this uncovered in the USA … my thoughts jump to the probability of similar stuff in our own backyard. Just like in the case of ACORN, when we found several ACORN Canada offices only when the stink over there wafted northwards, we are bound to find this billionaire’s tentacles in Canada too.
    I hope CSIS and RCMP are on their toes on this one.

  3. It is stealth Jihad like this which is the strongest enemy of the free people of the world. Thank God that he is under investigation and thank god the good people of Southern Sudan have broken free (for now) of the Islamic New World Order that this creep wants to impose on us all. Other people to break free are the good people of Papua New Guinea. The Western people are free for now but creeps like this keep presssing. Hopefully the increasingly racist islamic comments from the Turks will now mean that the stealth jihad game is now over and we can clearly see them for the enemy that they are. I for one am for jihadist who speak clearly full of hatred for the kuffar. At least I know who I am dealing with. The stealth jihadists can go on for decades without rufffling a feather and then it is often too late.

  4. As a US Citizen, born and raised, and as a conservative Turkish-American, we have to pursue the Gulen movement everywhere they are going. We, as US citizens cannot trust a single word the Gulen movement is saying. They are trying to fool the world with their phony dialogues and they are trying to spread Sharia Law worldwide and they are working as a 5th column to reverse democracy in the Republic of Turkey and destroy our American democracy. We have to hurry up and press as many lawsuits as possible against the Gulen movement. They want to spread a worldwide Religious fundamentalist Caliphate and destroy the planet. They are a threat to world peace and the Gulen movement are a bunch of two faced lying snakes. There are many people of Turkish descent worldwide who are willing to expose these warmongering two faced Gulenists who want to plot global world domination.

  5. Truebright Science Charter School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Philadelphia City School District — Serving Middle School grades 07 – 10.
    It is very unfortunate that Philly residents have no clue about the real purpose of these institutions such as Truebright Science Academy! These are Islamic fundamentalist Abdullah Gülen founded organizations for solely making propaganda and spreading poison throughout the nation… open your eyes and start investigating. There are about 150 to 200 Turkish charter schools such as Truebright operated by an Islamic cult managed by Imam Fetullah Gulen all over the US. Imam Gulen’s well known statement to his followers goes as follows “Travel within the arteries of the system without being noticed, and wait for the right time for action. Bride the courts, bribe the judges to win your case even if you need to spend millions of dollars to do so. This Imam expelled by the Turkish government now lives in the US. They abuse the immigration system to get 100s of Turkish teachers to teach at these charter schools while the American teachers flip burgers unemployed. Turkish teachers pay a percentage of their salaries back to the cult, seems voluntary, yet mandatory. So American tax payers pay these Turkish teachers in the school district. And the money eventually support the Gulen cult that had a secret agenda. The idea behind these Islamic charter schools is to create an American generation who are close to Gulen’s Islamic movement in ideology. The cult further identifies the most successful kids in the system and trains them as the leaders of the future. I am very glad that finally the secret agenda of the Imam Fetulla Gulen cult surface.
    All these schools may say they are Gulen Inspired ( TrueBright) and they have followers of Gulen (Cult Members)but let us look closer at the knucklehead they are inspired by. To quote Gulen’s own words.
    “You must become a bomb and explode against the USA…”
    “You must move through the artery of the systems until conditions are ripe…”
    “The Vatacin is a den of snakes and the Pope is like a Cobra….”
    “You must build a web(Madrassas-Schools) and lay with the patients of a spider. We do not consume their bodys but breath new life into their souls…”
    He placed a fatwa on the Kurdish people last month and from that 35 Kurdish children were slaughtered and in Au. A Kurdish woman was beaten by two of his followers. Some were arrested and tossed into prison.
    Not really anyone who should be around children. In my opinion they are monsters who pretend to be nice. In fact it is just plain creepy.
