Bill Gates helps Fund Gulen Islamist Movement (taxpayers fund over $41 million)
Family Security Matters ^ | 5.25.2011 | Paul Williams phd

Posted on 06/25/2011 6:31:34 AM PDT by wolfcreek

The Fethullah Gulen movement, which seeks to restore the Ottoman Empire, has found a friend and benefactor in Bill Gates of Microsoft fame. Mr. Gates is ranked the third wealthiest person on planet earth.

In 2007, through the Texas High School Project, the Gates Foundation shelled out $10,550,000 to the Cosmos Foundation, a Gulen enterprise that operates 25 publicly funded charter schools in Texas.

The Internal Revenue Service Form 990 for Cosmos shows that the Cosmos Foundation received $41,570,721 from taxpayers.

At present, there are 85 Gulan madrassahs (Islamic schools) in the United States, and all operate with public funding.

Besides the fifth column problems of madrassas, why are taxpayers footing the bill for religious schools?

my thoughts exactly!!!
remember the howls from the libs about the establishment clause, when Bush made it easier for Christian Charities to help people?

and the Gulen movement is much much worse than sinply wanted the Ottoman Empire back. It is an Islamist movement, very similar to the Muslim Brotherhood, and like the M.B., much much more dangerous to us, than Al-Queda ever was!

in the long run, this is WORSE than letting Al-Queda open publicly funded charter schools in Texas and Virginia!

converting Americans, and recruiting them, are much worse net, than simply killing a few Americans.
(it is no secret why American born Muslims are rising to top leadership positions in international Islamist groups.
fighting Islamists is bad enough, without them using American ingenuity against us!)

if people don’t wake up soon, their descendants will be wearing burkhas.

No, but I remember the howls from me when Bush pushed for Christian charities to get money.

Because that (making it easier for Christian charities and programs to get money) made this (Muslim or fill-in-the-blank charities and programs getting money) a piece of cake.

Since the government can't discriminate against one over the other, this was a logical and expected outcome.

Who didn't see this coming?

So I don't know if liberals were crying or not, but I sure was.

People who think they can pass and support laws to favor their group, and expect that those same laws won't be used to favor groups they dislike are, at best, delusional.

In the end, this hurts the churches, too. The government will eventually get it's pound of flesh in the form of control of the programs and institutions they fund. It always happens. Bank on it.

It has been ever thus.

sadly true.
Jesus himself said that Satan has dominion here for now.
we are in “enemy territory”, and all Christians must unite against the religion of Satan (Islam).

Bill Gates needs to get out of the “education” business, about which he knows nothing, and either get back into the computer business or find some hobby to occupy his time.

Time to hit the phones and emails to congress AGAIN!

Reps and senators get up and say there’s nothing more to cut in DC. That’s so much BS. We don’t need to cut - we just need to get rid of the agencies responsible for this and all other nonsense.

It’s not just the Ottoman Empire. AntiMullah has analyzed and written about Gulen some years ago and basically discovered that he is the Turkish equivalent Iran’s Khomeini back in 1979.

BTW did anyone realize that Khomeini’s original motive for attacking the Iranian monarchy and activating overthrowing it was...... the late Shah gave Women the right to vote!!! He said this was anti-Islamic.

That was his publicly stated reason for his anti-monarchy activity.

Shortly followed (when he looked for popular support) by saying the Shah had NO RIGHT to dispossess (often absentee) landowners with properties the size of Switzerland and give this land (Shah’s White Revolution) to the peasants who worked the land. He said this was anti-Islamic!

Without the Soviets and the Marxists-Islamists they cultivated and used against the Monarchy AND Jimmy the Idiot Carter, his crude, dark ages, fundementalist inserruction would never have succeeded and the world would be much safer place today.

And Obama would not have such easy sailing nor such a fertile playing field to detroy us even futher.

It is not an exaggeration to call Gulen the Turkish Khomeini nor Obama the American Khomeini. They both fit the mold pefectly.

Is Bill Gates' & his foundation's help to fund Gulen's Islamist movement out of ignorance or deliberate? Does Bill Gates deliberately want to spread Islam & Islamism in the USA?

Jimmah was ignorant about Khomeini & Islam - in addition to having other agenda against the Shah. Since then I've heard/read some call Jimmah a "demented loser". Obama OTOH is well informed about Islam & Islamist movements, but goes along with them.

You're of course right about opposition by the clergy to Shah's White Revolution & the right to vote to Iranian women.

Although, I believe A main reason why many Iranian women (not necessarily commie or leftist) supported Khomeini's leadership against the Shah, was because that generation of Iranians never experienced Islamic Rule, and, more importantly, never understood what Islam is really all about.

For example & from personal experience, I don't recall reading anything bad or negative about Arab-Moslem invasion of Iran in history class in Iran, nor about the killings, raping & forcible conversion of my Zoroastrian ancestors or community right up to late/early 20th century in Iran. My older sister says the same. Islam was portrayed in a positive light.

What was represented as "Islam" in Iran during the Shah, wasn't real "Islam". It was somebody's idea of what Islam is or should be. In a way, I can appreciate why Islam was represented as such at the time in Iran. Equally and in hindsight, the misrepresentation of Islam back then did lot more harm than good. Because Islam, itself, has not been reformed in nearly 1400 yrs. And, it brought to Iran a set of Bedouin Arab culture, which has been fairly well embedded since then in Iran.

Islam under the monarchy was what we now call “Eslaameh Shahanshahi” which basically was “Islam very-light” with nobody forced to obey any of the sharia laws nor tenets.

That wold be accetable anywhere but not by the Jihadi Islam of Obama and his supporters.

“Eslaameh Shahanshahi” roughly translates as "monarchic or monarchical Islam" - can't think of a more appropriate translation at the moment. I appreciate it was "Islam lite". Though, point remains that there is no such Islam even if accepted by the average Ali, Hossein, Reza, Zahra & Dariush in Iran because they liked their social freedoms under the Shah. Hence, leading the ordinary Iranian to think that “Eslaameh Shahanshahi” is the norm. It isn't/wasn't. Obviously many others (not just Jihadis, but religious moslem Iranian families didn't accept that newly invented Islam. It was untenable & a misrepresentation of Islam, itself.

In the FWIW column, just talked with my sister in Lake Worth, FL. She said they’re building a multimillion dollar mosque next to Walmart and near the Jewish Temple. She said she’s never seen a burqah wearing muslim, maybe one or two gals with the long garb. She said, “What is this, build it and they will come?”. . . The FBI should be monitoring every mosque in America. .

“Why do these Muslim Schools get Federal Funding at all!!”

The same question arises in my mind.

The answer is that the New World Order, which is running things here, is using the Muzzies to break down the exceptionalism, wealth and power of the United States, so they can fold it into their world tyranny.
