Islamic links to Utah's Beehive Academy probed

SALT LAKE CITY — By all appearances, it was a half-hearted attempt at a school protest. . . . Parents and students were upset with the State Office of Education's April 29 decision to shut down the financially struggling charter school . . . In the days since the state voted to revoke Beehive's charter, the Deseret News has scoured hundreds of pages of public records and interviewed dozens of people inside the Salt Lake City school. The emerging facts paint a troubling picture . . . .

Beehive's financial problems came to the board's attention in July 2009 when a former school board member accused the school of having clandestine ties to a controversial Muslim preacher. . . . . [As Beehive prepares to appeal the school's closure, nearly a dozen teachers and parents have come forward with new evidence linking the school to a powerful Islamic movement unknown to many Americans. . . .

It took months of research to put all the pieces together, but in the end, the answer was simple. The Turkish ties, the strange allegiance to an outside management company — it all boiled down to one person: Fethullah Gülen, a mysterious Muslim preacher none of them had ever heard of. . . .

That’s hilarious! Maybe that’s where the real Amish Paradise is located that Weird Al Yankovic sings of in his song “Amish Paradise.” LOL!

The Gulen schools operate cheaply because 1/2 the teachers are imported from Turkey under HB-1 Visas paid for by the foundation that is over that particular Gulen school.
The Turkish teachers are usually always men and are paid peanuts as 40% of their salary is paid back to the foundation.
That list is not 100% accurate you can take off the Beehive school it is done. I have been in contact with some of the parents who actually busted this fiasco. Add a new school in Sacramento: Pacific Technology School, and Pinnnacle Academy in Virginia. Magnolia School plans on expanding into 3 areas in California. Young Scholars of Central PA, is new. Also a few new pre-K, schools opening in Texas. Go to their websites it is obvious they teach Turkish language, song and dance. Students are taken on tours of Turkey for a “dog and pony” as well as local politicans and media to spread the love of Gulen. America you have become stupid.

Gulen owns 600 schools world wide, media, banks, Insurance. His influence is high up in the government of America since Clinton was in office.
The children in the schools learn Turkish language, dance and song. Then get a trip to Turkey to show off for the Turkiish government how American kids are turning into Turkish Nationalists. Gulen controls his propaganda with endless web sites and his newspapers : Fountain, Zaman and ERBU TV which broadcasts all over U tube. Here is a comprehensive website for Gulen’s many numerous institutions and list of schools.

Unfortunately Beehive is not off the list as of yet. The state charter board in a fit of cowardice reversed their decision to revoke the charter. We have to keep up the fight against Gulen in every place that he is operating. Oh and by the way, the non-Gulen board member in Utah is indeed a Mormon. However I’ve never heard of any Mormon Jihadists or Mormon/Nazi Amish, whatever that is.
