And Here I Thought Pete King Was Just a Cranky Raaacist

Wikileaks says he’s not alone.

Wikileaks documents show growing concern in U.S. government over Gulen’s Islamic movement

…The latest documents from Wikileaks shows growing concern among U. S. officials over Fethullah Gulen’s attempts to create a New Islamic World and the “braining washing of students” that takes place at his charter schools within the United States and throughout the Muslim world.

The cable that speaks of the “brain-washing” was written in 2009 by James Jeffrey, the U. S. Ambassador to Turkey.

In the cable, Mr. Jeffrey describes Gülen as a “political phenomena” in Turkey even when he resides “in exile” within a mountain fortress in Pennsylvania. He says the Gülen movement has gained control of Turkey’s government and dictates Turkish policy which has become increasing anti-Israeli and anti-American. It points out that the leaders of the Justice and Development Party (Adalet ve Kalkinma or AKP) who now govern Turkey, including Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and President Abdullah Gul, appear to serve as Gulen’s puppets.

  1. JeffS says:

    Representative King is discussing the problems of Islamic fundamentalism openly, with the intent of addressing those problems, instead of whispering about them behind closed doors. Hence, his actions are reprehensible, even if his intent is good.

    I believe this is known as “political correctness”, often referred to as “cultural suicide”.

  2. I wonder if Islam is aware that they are being given enough rope to hang themselves?
    Democracies don’t fight until they are really sure that they are in danger. So wouldn’t the fact that Islam is becoming more aggressive be enough to cause itself (Islam)some concern?
    Or haven’t they worked it out yet?
