Islamist running 140 tax-funded charter schools in U.S.

Just when those of us who keep ourselves informed regarding the creeping shariah stealth being utilized by Islamists here in America, we now discover an additional method [which is not being reported by the media of mass deception]  being used for Islamist invasion here in the United States.  Do you know about the Gulen charter school method of creeping sharia and it’s goals?  The article reveals that this may have been under the radar here in the United States for over 9 – 10 years!

Islamist running 140 tax-funded charter schools in U.S.
Casts broad net of influence over lawmakers.

Excerpt:

Muhammad Fethullah Gülen is a Turkish Islamist, writer and preacher with a secret plan for bringing Shariah law to America.

Arguably Turkey’s most influential spiritual leader of the past 50 years, Gülen left that country in the late 1990s and now directs his cult-like Islamic movement from a guarded compound in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.

Part of his empire consists of a thriving network of more than 140 charter schools in 26 states that sell themselves to parents as a secular and more academically rigorous alternative to public schools.

As the second largest chain of charter schools in the United States, Gülen schools rake in tens of millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars every year.

But the schools — which have innocent-sounding names like the Horizon Science Academies in Illinois, Harmony Schools of Excellence in Texas, Dove Science Academies in Oklahoma and Magnolia Science Academies in California — have long been the subject of investigations into alleged corruption scandals involving influence peddling and visa abuse.

USA Today reported recently that the Gülen faith movement secretly funded 200 overseas trips for congressional lawmakers and staff since 2008.

“Turkish leaders have asked the United States to extradite Gülen from the remote compound in rural Pennsylvania where he has lived for 20 years.

The movement has founded hundreds of charter schools across the United States and around the world, has its own media organizations, and was deeply entrenched with the Turkish regime until a falling out two years ago. That led President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to declare Gülen was running ‘a parallel state’ inside the country with the intent of undermining the government.”

Critics argue that the schools also covertly engage in Islamic missionary outreach, usually after-hours or during school extra-curricular activities.

Anti-Shariah activist Pam Geller says Gülen has been dubbed “the Turkish Khomeini” for a reason.

“It has been widely reported for years that he wants ultimately to restore the Islamic caliphate in Turkey. That alone should make his charter schools in the U.S. a subject of law enforcement scrutiny, but it largely hasn’t,” Geller told WND. “There have been allegations that funds from these schools have gone to a Turkish Islamization movement, Hizmet. The U.S. government shouldn’t be funding Gülen’s schools; it should be investigating them and shutting them down.”

See list of all 140 Gülen charter schools in 26 states.

Most of the parents of students who attend Gülen charter schools have no idea about Gülen’s background as a Turkish Islamist and believer in civilizational jihad — which is a form of nonviolent jihad focused on infiltrating and overcoming Western nations over time through immigration and exploitation of the civil liberties available in those nations.

But a new book on Gülen and his U.S. schools hopes to blow the lid on his cloak of secrecy.

Do yourself a favor and read this book!

Clare Lopez, co-author with Christopher Holton of “Gülen and the Gulenist Movement: Turkey’s Islamic Supremacist Cult and its Contributions to Civilizational Jihad,” says the movement is extremely secretive but there’s no small amount of information for those willing to dig. She and Holton decided to peel back the layers.

LOTS of good comments following the article on WND.  One of the best was written by “Engage Gray Matter”:

I don’t care where you are on the political spectrum or what your faith is; the idea of Sharia Law is anathema to the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law in the U.S. It should be weeded out wherever it rears its ugly head and outlawed within the U.S. It should never be allowed to take root. It is to be eradicated. Any politician who even pays lip service to a separate rule of law in the U.S. is unfit for office. Sharia should be outlawed part and parcel.

As far as introducing it to curriculum in our public schools, it should in all instances be shown as opposite of what our culture has established as basic fundamental freedoms (rights) guaranteed to each individual, endowed by our Creator (God) and Islam should be shown for the political polity it is masquerading as a religion as a guise to cover its real intent which is to subjugate its adherents through fear, intimidation, and ignorance.

Here is what St. Thomas Aquinas had to say in regard to Islam:

“He (Mohammed) seduced the people by promises of carnal pleasure to which the concupiscence of the flesh urges us. His teaching also contained precepts that were in conformity with his promises, and he gave free rein to carnal pleasure. In all this, as is not unexpected; he was obeyed by carnal men. As for proofs of the truth of his doctrine, he brought forward only such as could be grasped by the natural ability of anyone with a very modest wisdom. Indeed, the truths that he taught he mingled with many fables and with doctrines of the greatest falsity.

He did not bring forth any signs produced in a supernatural way, which alone fittingly gives witness to divine inspiration; for a visible action that can be only divine reveals an invisibly inspired teacher of truth. On the Contrary, Mohammed said that he was sent in the power of his arms – which are signs not lacking even to robbers and tyrants. What is more, no wise men, men trained in things divine and human, believed in him from the beginning. Those who believed in him were brutal men and desert wanderers, utterly ignorant of all divine teaching, through whose numbers Mohammed forced others to become his follower’s by the violence of his arms. Nor do divine pronouncements on part of preceding prophets offer him any witness. On the contrary, he perverts almost all the testimony of the Old and the New Testaments by making them into a fabrication of his own, as can be seen by anyone who examines his law. It was, therefore, a shrewd decision on his part to forbid his followers to read the Old and New Testaments, lest these books convict him of falsity. It is thus clear that those who place faith in his words believe foolishly.”

– St. Thomas Aquinas – Summa Contra Gentiles, Book 1, Chapter 16

    Posted without comment, except to say that this New York journal knew about him years before the witch-hunters at WND did.

    Yeah, witch-hunters! There are no such things as witches, but WND manages to find them anyway.

    Just because YOU do not like a certain news organization on the web doesn’t make their reporting any less credible.
    Then please, dear hostess, point me to any other credible source concerning Obama’s secret Muslim decoder ring, They, and you, were all over that like white on rice…once. Maybe Joe Farah doesn’t like the President’s taste in jewelry. Maybe he wishes he had one like it. But it was hardly credible reporting for such a ‘steemed news source.

    Look, I don’t like this guy any more than you do, and probably for very similar reasons. That’s why I submitted it, to let you know he hasn’t gone completely under peoples’ radar. It would not surprise me if the book’s author Clare Lopez isn’t the same Claire Berlinski who wrote the original NYJ article. If it is, it means she’s spent years investigating Gülen, his philosophy, and his schools. It could lead to something significant, both academically and politically.
    In any case, that’s real journalism, not WND and their “outrage of the week”.
