Let's come back to the article. The source of the writer as I mentioned is really clear, so that does not need further explanation. It is not based on serious research on the subject. A respected journalist is expected to do some field research, e.g. interviews with the mentioned persons in the article, and then check it from various sources. Instead, the writer took whatever came from Mary, and built his article on her false accusations and nonsense. Indeed, it seems that this article is handicraft prepared before a blank screen on the computer.
It was mentioned in the article that the American tax money is going to these charter schools. Can the writer explain if there is another way of running a charter school without using tax money? The very idea of charter school is based on tax money. There is another issue though on the same merit. Why does the author and Mary-like people attack only Turkish run charter schools? Is there prejudice here? There are many charters run by many different ethnicities, i.e. Armenians, Jews, Greeks, etc. So, then why do they only put the Turkish run charter schools in the spotlight? Is it because of their hatred toward Turkish people? It is unjust to attack those people while they are working hard for the good of America. Furthermore, it is unlawful. The U.S. Constitution strictly prohibits discrimination. What is the reason behind creating an unreal phenomena like Gulen charters and Gulen charter schools?
All in all, the author should have done some serious research before he sent his article to the newspaper. It repeats the same nonsense of Mary and Mary-like people whose main job is to create fiction narrative that radical Islam is conquering America from within through charter schools. They also have a name for it; Gulen charters, or Gulen charter schools. There is no radical Islam in these schools, and no radical Imam. To compare Mr. Gulen to radical Islam is irrelevant under any circumstance. And Mr. Gulen does not have an official link to neither one of these schools, and thus there is not such gulen charter school in the US.
