Regarding The Spiritual Leader Of The Gulen Charters



Just a few links here of Gulen-related information.

This ongoing video series about Gulenism is available online, and they're all quite good. I don't know anything about the person posting them, but the information jives with what you read in the scholarly work, at least from what I can tell.

It's obvious I'm not a scholar, but it would be interesting to use these videos as a starting point for a conversation about this cadre of Gulenists who are running so many charter schools.

Of course, the Gulenists would deny basically all of this.

Oh, and just for the heck of it, here are the 8 most recent H-1B certified visa applications from Concept. They're for the coming school year.






 

 





This one is really pretty frightening.. I have no idea who is posting these; this one is a bit over the top, but if you took away the music, you'd be listening to some very fascinating descriptions of the Gulen Movement by former Gulenists.


 

I understand perfectly well that there are any number of partisans who will say anything and everything about Gulen now that the momentum is there inside Turkey. And Turkey is definitely descending into madness..







But we really need to be having a more honest conversation about the actual nature of this Movement. Because we're in pretty deep at this point.TBFURMAN: Regarding The Spiritual Leader Of The Gulen Charters:
