Gulen Charter Schools
Fetullah Gulen is a Turkish (Islamist) Imam run out of Turkey for beginning a coup against the non-Islamic state in the late 90’s – He Fled to America in 1998 and now lives in Pennsylvania. Charter schools are public schools paid for by taxpayers through the state aid funding formula. 7.29.11 - Islamic Prime Minister of Turkey, Tayyip Erdogan (follower of Gulen), seized control of the government and the military creating an Islamic state. Fetulah Gulen has said:
You must move in the arteries of the system without anyone noticing your existence until you reach all the power centers… The philosophy of our service is that we open a house somewhere and, with the patience of a spider, we lay our web to wait for people to get caught in the web…
Gulenists under Erdogan, changed Turkey’s previously-secularist (democratic) system of education by editing textbooks to include Islamic doctrine and allowing only Imams to teach in schools. A communication from the American Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey dated March 2011, says;
Fethullah Gulen sits at the center of a vast and growing network encompassing more than 160 affiliated organizations in over 30 countries, including over 50 in the U.S……Gulen’s activities first piqued Consular officers, interest several years ago when applicants began to appear seeking to visit a number of charter schools in the U.S. with which Consular officers were unfamiliar. As the majority of the schools had the words "science" and/or "academy" in their names, they were easy to identify and track.
In 2000, there were ZERO (0) Gulen-associated schools in America - by 2011, there were 135 across the country and counting which all have names that create imagery of “peace” or “limitlessness” such as Cosmos, Sky, Dove, Discovery, Harmony. They are affiliated with Math and/or Science in some way, purport to be an ‘alternative’ to failing “public” schools, and are administrated by a man of Turkish decent usually here on an HB1 (workers) Visa Oklahoma has FOUR Gulen schools all run by the SKY FOUNDATION (also runs the Raindrop Turkish House in OKC that sends legislators to Turkey) Discovery School of Tulsa, Dove Science Academy Tulsa, Dove Science Academy - Oklahoma City, Dove Science Academy Elementary - Oklahoma City Of these four, 15% of teachers are reported to be of Turkish/foreign descent. Of 149 teachers employed 22 here on HB1 visas. Texas has 33 Gulen schools run by the Cosmos Foundation, employing up to 20% of teachers with HB1 visas = 1,550 teachers – 292 on HB1 visas Do you have to teach Islam to foment Islam? If you befriend someone, are you more or less likely to believe something bad about them? Are you more likely to protect and harbor them? Are you less likely to turn them in for some kind of activity thinking that they couldn't possibly have done anything like that because they are so nice? Are we going to let Oklahoma “…get caught in the web…”? The UK has allowed Gulen schools to proliferate under the guise of ‘tolerance’. Today, there are active Shariah law courts in the UK whose decisions can supersede British Law. Contact your legislator and tell them you do not want Gulen Charter schools in Oklahoma. Learn as much as you can about these schools and about the practices of Islam and Sharia.
