Re: “Hidden Agenda?

Gulen movement is NOT a Turkish nationalist movement. Claiming that Gulen is Turkish nationalist is a joke. He and his followers are pro-ummah(Islamic nation), so they are against Turkish nationalism and Turkish secularism. Fethullah Gulen promotes Islamic union as opposed to Turkish secularism. Gulen movement is an Islamic movement with certain political aims and connections in the US and all over the world. Turkish nationalists are strongly against Gulen movement.

Yes, Fethullah Gulen is a Turkish citizen. However, he was questioned in Turkey over his Islamist activities and Turkey issued an arrest for him 8 years ago. He then fleed to the US. Why to the US? Why does he still live in the US despite his arrest issue in Turkey was dropped? Why does the US support him? These are the questions need to be asked. He lives in the US and continues his Islamic activities with the strong support of the US. Gulen movement is strongly disliked by Turkish nationalists/seculars.

Re: “Hidden Agenda?

This is quite funny, Gulen is a Turkish 'nationalist'? The guy is nothing but a Turkish nationalist. An arrest order was issued for him in Turkey 8 years ago because of his Islamist activities and efforts to create an underground organisation to fight against secularism. Guess what happened then? He fleed to the US and was given protection by the US since then. He is closely related to Turkey's current so-called 'moderate Islamic' AKP government. Oh, what is moderate Islam? You need to consult with the US to understand it as it was formulated and passionately supported by the US administrations. So, Gulen, US and AKP are intertwined, and Gulen is living comfortably in the US for the past 8 years and carrying on his Islamist activities under the protection and generous support by the US.

As for the Armenian genocide claims, historians including Bernard Lewis, Guenter Lewy, Avigdor Levy, Standford Shaw, Norman Stone, Gilles Weinstein wrote several academic works on that, and those works reveal that it was not a genocide. Armenians launched a bloody war against the Ottoman civilians and lost it, then went for genocide claims decades after in a bit to continue their fight for Greater Armenia. Armenians formed ASALA terrorist organisation, attacked and killed Turkish diplomats and civilians all over the world including in the US during 1970s and 1980s as part of their political attempts. Though, by the 1990s Armenians discovered that it was easier to buy politicians than continuing ASALA terror campaign. Historians prove that it was not a genocide, however some politicians and hired lobby groups agree with Armenian claims as their financial source is the Armenian lobby groups.
