FBI Investigates Ayatollah Gulen Charter Schools
Nothing to do with Islam, “extremism” is the problem (or some other BS) Â But anyhow: how can this happen in the age of Obama? Is this connected with the “Trojan Horse” plot in the UK? Â Or is Obama trying to help out Tayyip Erdogan, who’s been squabbling with Fetullah Gulen for quite some time?
Federal agents have raided 19 charter schools, including three in Ohio, where an FBI criminal investigation in Cleveland has led to search warrants in Indiana and Illinois over the past week.
The 19 schools are managed by Concept Schools, a charter school operator headquartered near Chicago.
Concept Schools has been investigated previously by the U.S. Department of Labor for its use of foreign workers. Ohio audits found that public money for the schools had been used improperly for visas. Concept received more visas for immigrant workers than Google in 2009 and many of the school’s employees are of Turkish descent. Most of the nonprofit schools’ board members in Northeast Ohio are male and of Turkish descent.
The company manages 19 charter schools in Ohio, second only to Texas with 44 such schools. There are nearly 140 charter schools, spread across 26 states, associated with Turkish Cleric Fetullah Gulen, an Islamic cleric exiled from Turkey, living in Pennsylvania. (More)
