|Pen is for the declaration of Truth, |
not for the creation of lies. Woe to those
who are using it in their evil cause.
This very title reminded me the two core motivations behind the Gulen defamation league (anti-Gulen schools); namely fiction, which can also be rendered as lie, and money, which implies more than a green Benjamin, but green love for some adherents of this fundamentalist group.
I picked the adjective fundamentalist intentionaly mostly because this group that has been formed by the creators of Islamophobia, is as dangerous as Al Qaide.
Denying the entire universal humanitarian values, they do not hesitate attacking individuals, as well as communities, through unacceptable methods of intimidation.
But anyway. This is not I want to address here.
There are basically two things that the anti-charter group employs when they attack the Turkish run charter schools.
First of all, they create a fiction narrative that, what they think, would be the nucleus of all stories about these schools. They so masterfully form the story, so that someone on the street, or bygonners, would think that all the evil in our educational system stems from the charter schools that came into existence a couple of decades ago as an alternative to the traditional public schools by having more freedom and more flexibility comparing to their public peers.
Now, the number of charter schools exceeds more than 5,000 across the nation. There is no denial that some of them, maybe a scintillas of them, are going astray from the direction on which they are intended to go.
However, this should not prevent us to appreciate the goodness in majority of others. Gulen inspired charters, in this sense, are one of the best illustrations of this fact that if given the enough opportunity, charter schools can achieve more.
|None of the so-called gulen charter schools|
teaches Islam. What they teach is
free thought and love for neighbor.
For some reason, Americans are not interested in numbers, formulas, triangles, etc., all these unreal phenomena. But somebody has to do it. That's why the US government pays these charter schools thousands of dollars. The government expects them to fill the gap BTW humanities and sciences by bolstering the latter.
Am I deviating from the topic? Okay.
What I was saying is that this Gulen defamation league, in the mean time Fethullah Gulen is a retired Turkish Muslim preacher resides in the Poconos because of health concerns, created a narrative that all the Turkish run charter schools are Gulen charter schools, as if Mr. Gulen is running and operating them.
The point they tried to reach is a kind of connection btw a Muslim preacher and the government funded charter schools.
If a Muslim is somehow associated with a public institution supported by the government, people should be alarmed for a possible Radical Islamic threat that tries to conquer America from within.
Isn't it perfectly forged out. This nonsense is playing the central role in the operation of the whole anti-Gulen charter group.
Once they came up this idea of radical Islam infiltrating into the US via charter schools, they needed someone to support it.
They did not have to worry on that score because there was the entire body of Islamophobia incorporation along side them. It has been proved by a recent study that some persons and foundations are intentionally supporting hatred against Islam.
The methods they employ are cutting edge. They support some certain scholars(?) to blaze it in the academic milieus so that their utterances would serve for a bigger cause in the future.
|Neither America, nor the Ottoman Empire.|
The God's Kingdom is within us.
Do Gulen charter schools
remind you something on this merit?
