Since the election of Barack Obama, we have seen a rapid rise of Islamic terrorism throughout the world and dramatic growth of Islam here at home.
Given his past Islamic roots, the President has gone out of his way to defend anything Islamic, even seeming to make excuses for Islamic terrorism. He still has yet to utter the words, “radical Islamic terrorism.”
With Islam seeking to spread quickly across the planet, it should come as no surprise that there are those in America seeking to spread the religion.
But, we may not be aware of networks, already set up to advance the religion. A new story by WND explains a startling development in American education related to Islam’s spread across America.
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.
This is shocking! Here we have a Muslim immigrant working below the radar to spread Islam throughout the US; and he’s using a chain of supposedly benign charter schools to accomplish his mission.
On top of that, he is getting all of us to help pay for it!
WND has more:
“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.
This sounds suspiciously like a stealth jihadist in action; not blowing things up, but spreading the faith beneath a cloak of respectability.
