WORLD’S “MOST DANGEROUS ISLAMIST” ALIVE, WELL, AND LIVING IN PENNSYLVANIA

FEDS TURN BLIND EYE TO MOUNTING HOMELAND SECURITY THREAT

By Paul L. Williams, PH.D.

The most dangerous Islamist in the world is neither Afghani nor Arab.

He comes from neither Sudan nor Somalia.

And he resides in neither the mountains of Pakistan nor the deserts of the Palestinian territories.

This individual has toppled the secular government of Turkey and established madrassahs throughout the world.

His schools indoctrinate children in the tenets of radical Islam and prepare adolescents for the Islamization of the world.

More than 90 of these madrassahs have been established as charter schools throughout the United States. They are funded by American taxpayers.

One of these charter schools – – Tarek ibn Zayed Academy (TiZA) in Minnesota – – is so radically Islamic and subversive in nature that the Minnesota Department of Education issued two citations against it and the American Civil Liberties Union is suing it.

Dozens of his universities, including the Faith University in Istanbul, train young men to become lawyers, accountants, and political leaders so that they can take an active part in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire and the Islamization of the Western World.

He also allegedly operates compounds to train jihadis in the tactics of guerilla warfare.

This individual has amasssed a fortune – – over $30 billion – – for the creation of a universal caliphate.

The Saylorsburg property consists of a massive chalet surrounded by numerous out buildings, including recreational centers, dormitories, cabins for visiting foreign dignitaries, a helicopter pad, and firing ranges.

Neighbors complain of the incessant sounds of gunfire – – including the rat-tat-tat of fully automatic weapons – – coming the compound and the low flying helicopter that circles the area in search of all intruders.

The FBI has been called to the scene, the neighbors say, but no action has been taken to end the illegal activity.

Sentries stand guard at the gates to the estate to turn away all curiosity seekers.

Within the sentry hut are wide screen televisions that project high resolution images from security cameras.

Before the hut is a sign that reads “Golden Generation Worship and Retreat Center.”

It’s hard for the local residents to understand that the Muslim who operates this compound is not an American political or intelligence official – – but rather a radical Islamist from Turkey.

Gulen fled Turkey in 1998 to avoid prosecution on charges that he was attempting to undermine Turkey’s secular government with the objective of establishing an Islamic government. Since his arrival in Pennsylvania, the Department of Homeland Security has been trying to deport him. But in 2008 a federal court ruled that Gulan was an individual with “extraordinary ability in the field of education” who merited permanent residence status in the U.S.

The ruling remains quizzical because Gulen has no formal education training.

Gülen, according to the Middle East Quarterly, 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 and his reforms and against the new modern, secular, Western republic.

How powerful is Gulen? And why is he such a threat to America and the Western world?

Consider this.

Turkey is now ruled by the Justice and Democratic Party (Adalet ve Kalkinma, AKP)- – a party under the Gulen’s control. Abdullah Gul, Turkey’s first Islamist President, is a Gulen disciple along with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Yusuf Ziya Ozcan, the head of Turkey’s Council of Higher Education.

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 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-American animus throughout the populace.

Speaking on Monday at the inauguration ceremony of “TRT al Turkiye”, the new channel of the state run TV station TRT, Prime Minister Erdogan said Turkey will always be on the side of Muslims wherever they are.

Gulen’s tentacles stretch throughout the country since his followers, known as Fethullahists, have gained control of the country’s media outlets, its financial institutions and banks, and its business organizations.

According to Bayram Balci, a Turkish scholar, the Gulen schools that have been established throughout the world 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.

Several countries have outlawed the establishment of Gulen schools and cemaats (communities) within their borders – – including Russia and Uzbekistan. Even the Netherlands, a nation that embraces pluralism and tolerance, has opted to cut funding to the Gulen schools because of their imminent threat to the social order.

But Gulen’s activities in the United States, including the establishment of an armed fortress in the midst of the Pocono Mountains, have escaped national press attention.

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.

Despite the paramilitary training at his Pocono fortress, Gulen has condemned terrorism and called for interfaith dialogue. He has met with Pope John Paul II, the Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomeos, and Israeli Sephardic Head Rabbi Eliyahu Bakshi-Doron.

In private, Gulen has stated that “in order to reach the ideal Muslim society ‘every method and path is acceptable, [including] lying to people.’”

In a sermon that was aired on Turkish television, Gulen said:

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 in Turkey … Until that time, any step taken would be too early—like breaking an egg without waiting the full forty days for it to hatch. It would be like killing the chick inside. The work to be done is [in] confronting the world. Now, I have expressed my feelings and thoughts to you all—in confidence … trusting your loyalty and secrecy. I know that when you leave here—[just] as you discard your empty juice boxes, you must discard the thoughts and the feelings that I expressed here.

Why has the federal government opted to turn a blind eye to Gulen and his mountain fortress?

Why have Gulen’s madrassahs been kept under the radar screen of Hoimeland Security?

Why have the CIA and FBI allowed Gulen to wreak havoc and topple secular governments without interruption or intervention?

The answers remain anyone’s guess.

    Fethullah Gulen: Working for the Islamic Caliphate from Saylorsburg, PA
    by sheikyermami on April 6, 2010

    “How powerful is Gulen? And why is he such a threat to America and the Western world?”

    “…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.

    The CIA and the FBI would have been observing this maniac, until Obama was elected the POTUS. Then all apparatus would have been dismantled. Another strategy might be that they, too, need to …”move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing [their] existence until [they] reach all the power centers …” to discover just how big his organisation is, in order to irradicate it.
    Given Obama’s background, proved so far, we can assume that he is allowing them to continue.
    Roll on November! America TAKE YOUR COUNTRY BACK!

  2. This is my first visit to your site and I love your sense of humour. Will defiinitely add this site to my required daily news reading. Thanks for your insight on current world events.

  3. Snake Hunter sez,

    Why is this billionaire terrorist, Fethullah Gulen, allowed a home base in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania, apparently immune from our FBI, our CIA and Home Security?

    IF American Bloggers like Right Truth, Sheikh Yer Mammi, Winds of Jihad (Sheik Yer Mami) and Snake Hunter is aware of this guy, then it’s fair to assume the White House inner-circle also knows about Fethullah Gulen! – reb

  4. This is all lie, and Paul Williams exactly knows he is lying.

    “Tarek ibn Zayed Academy (TiZA) in Minnesota” is affiliated with Gulen?
    “This individual has toppled the secular government of Turkey and established madrassahs throughout the world.”

    “His schools indoctrinate children in the tenets of radical Islam and prepare adolescents for the Islamization of the world.”

    Come on man, you can lie better than this……

  5. Any information on this page is fabrication. This man lives his life for others. His intentions are pure benevolence. He is a Turkish Scholar, and he does have education, unlike what is written on this page. He wrote over a thousand books of which sell all around the world. His books mention of only peace and reconciliation. And this is probably where most of his money comes from. He is a philanthropist who spends very little money for himself, but gives it to all different kinds of charities. He is not a terrorist raising soldiers for future wars. If you knew even a little truth about him, you would know this also. Whomever you are writing this, you are obviously offending this person of untruthful words for having a different religion than you have. The calumnies written on this page are unacceptable. This is probably how limited you are, assaulting other religions. Fetullah Gulen never criticizes other religions as you are doing right now. He respects every religion and has several lovers of different religions. Your page is immature, offending other religions. If you only had a little maturity, you would know to respect other religions. Even if you think so ridiculously of other religions, keep it to yourself, for they are not true.

  6. * Even if you think so ridiculously of other religions, keep it to yourself, for they are not true.

    allah and its false prophet didn’t keep their thoughts on other religions to themselves; in fact, they were quite explicit about imposing islam and / or its protection racket on non-muslims, or killing them.

    Tell allah to keep its thoughts to itself, and get back with its response.

    In the meantime, I and no doubt others here will continue to exercise free thought and speech in opposition to allah, the false prophet, and those who aid and abet their islamic death cult / protection racket.

  8. First of all, the video has nothing to do with Fethullah Gulen even though whoever wrote it did his best to relate it somehow. I can assure you that the followers of Fethullah Gulen can’t even harm a blowfly. The reason is so simple and easy to figure out, its because Mr. Gulen teaches his followers how to love everyone even if they curse at you, he teaches how to love everyone even if they harm you. You really don’t need to make a research to find out. All you need to do is to read any paragraph from any page of any of his books.

  9. * Islamophobic

    allah, via its false prophet, seeking to kill, maim, and strike terror, & then getting its followers to accuse its victims of “islamophobia”.

    That dog won’t hunt for much longer, Monique.

  10. Anonymous!
    Gulen teaches his followers how to lie and be scam artists, just like him! Gulen only has a 5th grade education, yet he has emassed an empire of $25 billion in schools, media, and interwined himself with numerous foundations and institutes…whilest promising American politicians trips to Turkey and special favors.
    He is a liar! Yalan Yalan.
    Gulen and his followers are managing over 100 schools in the USA. We have to stop them from Turkification of our kids. Turkish Olympiads the kids dance and perform under the Islamic Flag of Turkey. Gulen you will never steal our secular Turkey from us. The Americans might be stupid but they will wise up.

  11. There are so much lies about Fethullah Gulen and his movement, I am not one of his followers though. In reality, he is a good person, although I have not met him. The people who wrote bad about him was, and is, not correct at all. Nobody can claim or show that they did any bad things here in the US or anywhere in the world. They are very peaceful and nice people. I know the fact that they even helped people who were making propaganda against them. It is a shame that some people still talk ill on them. What you write against Mr. Gulen or his movement is just pathological lies and fabrications. Nothing, but jealousy.

  12. * pathological lies and fabrications

    Same organ grinder … same song and dance … different monkey :)

  13. Then why is the government of Turkey NOW investigating the inflitration of the Gulen movement in key positions within education, politics, media, military and police? What was it ? ah yes, 190 charges brought forward against your precious Pasha Gulen who lives in exile in the Poconos, PA guarded behind 40 acre compound.
    The gig is up Gulenites, Fetosh is a liar.
    He is a Kurd from SE Turkey, with a 5th grade education. He is NO scholar.

  14. Why don’t people first try to check information from official resources before accusing someone? Don’t they ever realise that they would be embarrassed when what they are telling turns out to be a lie?

    Well Murat, Fethullah Gulen has no proven charges against him. He is not a Kurd, he is from Erzurum from NE Turkey. He has completed with distance education high school level.

    He knows Charles Darwin better than you, all philosophical scholars even the ones you have never heard.

    To assess him you are no match.

    As I can understand you are only jealous of him. And that does not give you the right to attack him.

    How do I know that he is a great person?

    Because Fethullah Gulen has forgiven hundreds of people like Murat and he was always an advocate for peace and dialogue. Even for ignorant ones like Murat.

    All his sayings, conferences, speeches are recorded since 1960s. If he had a hidden agenda would it not be revealed in 50 years? Is it possible for one to fake for 50 years? Definitely no.

    What he said 50 years ago is the same today. He is a truthful scholar. If he wasn’t, then how can you explain the thousands of top brains around him? Would someone follow another if they are not smarter than you?

  15. Burn this into your mind –

    Al-Taqiyah: A Islamic subterfuge; from the verb Ittaqu (taqiyya: Arabic for “deception”), linguistically means “dodge the threat”. Politically it means simulate whatever status you need in order to win the war against the enemy.

    Just as anything in the ‘digital age’ can not be -automatically- trusted 100%, so also anyone practicing Islam can not be automatically trusted (no matter how friendly, ‘Westernized’, or ‘American’ they may seem). Islam is a cult of death; it has been proven time and time again. It needs to be eradicated.

    In just 1 example, consider the fate of a Greek patriot’s (Athanasios Diakos) refusal to switch from Christianity to Islam (also with a promise to be made a officer in the Ottoman Empire) in 1821… he was impaled on a pike and roasted alive over a pit (barbequed alive!).

    As the saying goes… “I learned everything I -need- to know about Islam on 9-11.”.

  16. To Monique –

    Please grow a brain. The word “phobia” (-phobic) means –

    -Irrational- and persistent fears or dread (not hatred; fear and hatred are two completely different psychological states) usually coined from Greek words, but occasionally from Latin words.

    There is nothing irrational in the thought that Muslims are savages and wish to literally conquer the entire world (by no later than 2076!). Ergo, ‘Islamaphobia’ is not applicable, and in fact sounds like “al-taqiyah” to me. Just like hanging out in a swamp infested with alligators, you better have a large caliber gun in your hand and a very keen eye to remain safe.

  17. Islam –
    Arabic for “submission” (to the will of Allah); the religion of Muslims (Islamic beliefs, ethics, and piety based on Muhammad’s teachings). In a century’s time of past, Islam had converted 1/3 of the world population (by force or guile). Islam’s central book (the Quran) makes little sense outside the context of two other Islamic books, the Hadith (traditions) and the Sira (bio of Muhammad). The Quran was written entirely by Muhammad, which is unlike any other religion on Earth. Islam is the newest major ‘religion’ on Earth.

    Islamism –
    the political ideology of Islam; all aspects of life are about Islam and for Islam; there is no individual evaluation of commitment allowed (see: “sharia”)

    …Yep, I’d say we have an infestation of evil.

  18. I love Fethullah Gulen`s idea.
    You should read his book and make just little bit research about him.
    He has been working for more then 50 years and there is no bad issues in his life.

    We all LOVE him

  19. I’m Indonesian. I can see how hatred can blind the common sense. richard driskill has put Brimob and OPM as islamic terrorist’s list. Wow, he is completely wrong. Brimob is an elite Indonesian Police Force and OPM is actually a terrorist group that want to free papua from Indonesia, and all of its member are non-muslim. And I believe all of hatred comments above are lies. Come on richard, you can tell lie better than this.

  20. To the Indonesian person,
    Richard gor two wrong – the majority were correct – his point is valid.

  21. Why would anyone blame the Papuan’s from wanting to free themselves of Indo oppression?

    Why would the Papuan Non Muslims have Indo Muslims rule over them?

  22. IF anyone believes that Fethullah Gullen is a man of ‘Peace’… then let him read the Holy Qur’an:

    “Allah’s Apostle said: I have become victorious with terror.”
    – Bukhari, Vol 4, Book 52, 220 –

  23. To all people who claim that Fethullah Gulen and his cronies represents Turkey, Islam and Turkish people positively, IT IS A LIE! I can debunk everything about the Gulen movement. They are not moderate, infact, they are more dangerous then Al-Qaida, Hamas, Hezbollah, Taliban all put together. This is a quote from Fethullah Gulen:
    “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 in Turkey … Until that time, any step taken would be too early—like breaking an egg without waiting the full forty days for it to hatch. It would be like killing the chick inside. The work to be done is [in] confronting the world. Now, I have expressed my feelings and thoughts to you all—in confidence … trusting your loyalty and secrecy. I know that when you leave here—[just] as you discard your empty juice boxes, you must discard the thoughts and the feelings that I expressed here.”
    This means he wants to infiltrate the world and plot world domination, as well as Sharia Law. We have to stop these Gulenists in their tracks. I mean, opening schools to indoctrinate kids via Turkish Olympiads and having teachers to bring kids to their house for sleepovers (who knows what these teachers are doing at sleepovers, tsk tsk). Also, sexually harassing females and firing American teachers as well and only hiring Turkish/Turkic teachers. Plus US taxpayers subsiding millions of dollars to a movement that is run by Turkeys version of Ayatollah Khomeini, which wants to subjugate the world. How can this Illiterate 5th Grade educated Kurdish peasant can be a world leader. I hope one day someone bombs his Pennsylvania compound and all of his charter schools get shut down. I am saying this as someone of Turkish ancestry btw.
