MASKING A RADICAL AGENDA WITH MODERATION

Monday, February 8th, 2016

 

THE WASHINGTON TIMES
•WHEN MODERATION MASKS A RADICAL AGENDA
By Abraham R. Wagner

Abraham R. Wagner teaches national security law and intelligence at the Columbia Law School and Columbia Universitys School of International and Public Affairs, where he is a senior research fellow at the Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies.

– – Thursday, January 21, 2016

No one ever wants a Cosby moment, a moment when all of one’s suspected bad deeds are exposed to the world. Fettulah Gulen, the undisputable leader of the Gulen Movement was recently provided such a Cosby Moment, compliments of the FBI.
Mr. Gulen, a Muslim cleric from Turkey, with an elementary education only, is a mysterious fellow. In cables divulged by WikiLeaks, the U.S. Department of State described Mr. Gulen as “a ‘radical Islamist’ whose moderate message cloaks a more sinister and radical agenda.” He is reputed to be worth roughly $25 billion, although no one seems to know from where he earned this tidy sum. Most notably and despite the Department of State’s perspective, he espouses principles of tolerance and multicultruralism.  Yet upon deeper investigation,he is a true dyed-in-the-wool Islamist who wishes to transform the United States and Turkey into Sharia states.
Mr. Gulen lives in the United States in self-imposed exile, a seat from which he runs a vast and questionable network of charter schools and overlapping nonprofit organizations and businesses, and, as evidence presented in U.S. and Turkish courts shows, actively agitates and plots the overthrow of the democratically-elected government in Turkey, one of the few stable allies the United States possesses in the Middle East, a NATO-member and the lynchpin to defeating ISIS and to bringing peace to Iraq and Syria.
As the proprietor of the largest network of charter schools in the United States, Mr. Gulen receives hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars. Active investigations into the financial malfeasance of the Gulen schools are ongoing in Texas, Louisiana, Illinois, Ohio and other states, this, in addition to an active investigation by the FBI. According to state and local law enforcement reports, the Gulen Movement, in collusion with various nonprofit organizations and companies directly linked to the Gulen Movement, are playing a sort of shell game with taxpayer funds. Gulen schools pay high rental fees on properties owned by Mr. Gulen, construction and renovations of Gulen facilities are performed by Gulen businesses and vast sums are spent on facilitating the entry of young Turkish men to the United States.

CARLY’S MEDIEVAL HISTORY DEGREE

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

 

Edmund Burke

“Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.”

Edmund Burke

Carly’s medieval history degree

Fiorina: Medieval History Degree Will Help Her Defeat ISIS

“What ISIS wants to do is drive us back to the Middle Ages, literally.”

Who would have thought that a bachelor’s degree in medieval history and philosophy, even from Stanford University, would prove useful for anyone but a university medievalist – much less a presidential candidate?
“Finally my degree in medieval history and philosophy has come in handy,” said Carly Fiorina Sunday night, “because what ISIS wants to do is drive us back to the Middle Ages, literally.”
ABC News reported that the point arose while Fiorina was addressing a town hall crowd in Windham, New Hampshire. Asked by a member of the military for assurance that she is capable of taking on the Islamic terror group, Fiorina replied that ISIS is “an evil that must be defeated,” and that she would work with allies in the Middle East such as Turkey who have asked for specific resources and assistance to fight the extremist group. Turkey, for example, has asked for help establishing a no-fly zone along its border with Syria.
Asked to elaborate on how a degree in medieval history will help her handle ISIS, Fiorina replied,
“Every single one of the techniques that ISIS is using — the crucifixion, the beheadings, the burning alive — those were commonly-used techniques in the Middle Ages, so we can’t avert our eyes and pretend it’s an exaggeration that ISIS wants to take its territory back to the Middle Ages. But that is in truth what they want to do and are attempting to do.”

EUROPEAN COLONIZATION, NOT REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT

Tancredo: European Colonization, Not Refugee Resettlement

Muslim mayor migrants

by Tom Tancredo 4 Sep 2015

In the mushrooming “refugee crisis” in Europe, there is a big dog that is not barking.
Why are the more than one million Muslim refugees so anxious to get to northern Europe and not, say, Saudi Arabia or Egypt? Why are we obligated to help them get to Amsterdam, Oslo and London? And why in the world is the United States government planning to take 66,000 Syrian refugees?

Yes, Europe is faced with a massive refugee crisis when a million homeless people surge northward in search of food, shelter and safety. But why are they choosing Germany, Belgium, Sweden and Britain and not neighboring Muslim countries?

And why does the United States have any obligation whatsoever to absorb any more refugees and asylum seekers than the over 100,000 we already accept each year from Central America, Asia and Africa?

This human wave surging across Europe is a byproduct of the interminable civil war in Syria, ISIS massacres of whole cities in Iraq – and the terrorist mayhem across North Africa unleashed by Obama’s incredibly stupid “Arab Spring.” We can understand why people are fleeing the chaos. But why must Muslim refugees be accommodated with shelter, food, and jobs in Europe instead of in Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Turkey?

Turkey is a symptom of the larger problem. Turkey has refugee camps, but the Turkish government encourages and helps the refugees’ movement to seaports where they can arrange to be smuggled across the Aegean Sea to Greece, Italy or elsewhere.

Why don’t the refugees want to stay close to home so they can return when the violence stops?

Is this simply a flight to the perceived safety and welfare state generosity offered by European nations? Or is something else going on here? Why is it not politically correct to ask that question? (more…)
