Shariah for Uncle Sam?

White House Official Endorses Universal Caliphate


Paul L. Williams, Ph.D.

The first woman to wear a veil in the White House has endorsed the Gulen movement which seeks to restore the Ottoman Empire and to establish a universal caliphate.

Dalia Mogahed, President Barack Obama’s Muslim advisor, said: “I think the Gülen movement offers people a model of what is possible if a dedicated group of people work together for the good of the society. I also think that it is an inspiration for other people and Muslims for what they can accomplish.”

Asked about the movement’s hidden agenda, Mogahed told Sunday’s Zaman that she usually does not attach any importance to such allegations.

“It (the Gulen movement) has moved beyond Turkey in its very benevolent projects and it serves people from all around the world of all backgrounds, but it is still made up mostly of Turks. That is what I feel is in need of expanding,” she said.

Fethullah Gulen has been called the “most dangerous Islamist” in the world.

He has amassed a fortune – – thanks, in part, to the CIA – – of $25 billion.

This money has been used to transform the secular government of Turkey into an Islamic Republic under the Justice and Democratic Party (Adalet ve Kalkinma, AKP)- – a party under the Gulen’s control.

Abdullah Gul, Turkey’s first Islamist President, is a Gulen disciple along with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and Yusuf Ziya Ozcan, the head of Turkey’s Council of Higher Education.

Under the AKP, Turkey has transformed from a secular state into an Islamic country with 85,000 active mosques – – one for every 350- citizens – – the highest number per capita in the world, 90,000 imams, more imams than teachers and physicians – – and thousands of state-run Islamic schools.

Turkey, as Rachel Sharon-Krespin points out in Middle East Forum, has never seen a single incident of attacks on pious Muslims for fasting during Ramadan, whereas in recent years there have been many incidents of attacks on less-observant Turks for drinking alcohol or not fasting and on Christian clerics, including the recent murder of a Catholic bishop. While women who cover their heads in the Islamic manner can move freely in any area of the country, uncovered women are increasingly unwelcome in certain regions and are often physically assaulted by observant Islamists.

AKP leaders, including Gül and Erdoğan, have repeatedly expressed their opposition to the “imprisonment of Islam in the mosque,” demanding that it become omnipresent as the prevailing force throughout modern Turkey.

Ms. Mogahed call for the expansion of the Gulen movement throughout the world has failed to evoke a negative remark or comment from the national press.

Born in Egypt, Ms. Mogahed has been a staunch defender of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Both of these US groups are tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.

In addition to her White House position, Ms. Mogahed serves as the Director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies.

    When are the people of the Constitution going to wake up and impeach this Muslim POTUS?

    Presidents have been impeached for a lot less.
    Mubarack Hussein supports terrorist dictators and even sends 400 million dollars to Hamas so they can buy weapons to kill more Israelis and U.S. civilians abroad.

    The guy could have stopped an oil leak in the Gulf a month ago had he listened and allowed a Netherlands engineering crew to come in and stop it as they guranteed they could. But no, he decided to rest his hopes on BP. Now they don’t know it can be stopped.

    He is weak, incompetent, a poor example of leadership, completely lacking in decision making skills in times of crisis.
    What more do the American public need to convince them that this man plans to bring down the house of cards that it took over 200 years of solid Christian discipline, morals and sweat to build?

    This is very dangerous for Unıted State of America!


  3. AmericatheBRAVE says:

    Why does the President of the USA need an “Islamic Advisor?” Don’t we have enought of them in the CIA, and FBI? How much is this woman getting to be an “advisor” to the USA?
    Dalia is a joke, I want to see her credentials and what qualifies her to be speaking about anything.
    Dalia probably also believes in the Mosque being built near ground zero or the Mosque the MAS is building where a Catholic convent was.
    This woman has no shame.

    Lastly, I see Dalia was born in Egypt. I would be interested to hear what her opinion is of the Coptic Christians of Egypt? The FIRST people to inhabit Egypt long before the Arab-Moslem invasions. Now these first “Christians” who date back to 190 AD are a mere 10% of the population and are constantly under attack by Egyptian Moslem extremists. So what does Dalia think of that?

    Feb 14th, 2010 | By Bikya Masr Staff | Category: Egypt, Featured, News
    CAIRO: An Egyptian court has postponed a trial of three Muslim men accused of murdering 6 Coptic Christians and one Muslim security guard in Nag Hammadi on January 6. The attack on a church in the southern Egyptian village has left the country on edge, with Christians crying foul and arguing the government does not do enough to ensure their rights are maintained.

    On Saturday, lawyers from the Egyptian Initiative for Personal Rights (EIPR) reported they and a number of journalists were barred from the courtroom as proceedings began.

    According to lawyers and reports from the court, the accused men have pleaded not guilty, despite having initially confessed to the shooting. Authorities have repeatedly said the shooting was in revenge for the alleged rape of a 12-year-old Muslim girl by a Coptic man.

    The rape was reported in November and led to widespread anger and protests. Coptic shops in the village of Farshout, near Nag Hammadi, were set ablaze and riot police were called into the village to maintain order.

    Christian leaders have repeatedly said the government’s inaction in creating a society based on equality has led to widespread violence and tension in the country. Naguib Gobrail, a leading Coptic lawyer and outspoken critic of the government, said that the government “wants to push Copts back and away from being citizens of this country.”

    He argued that the postponing of the trial is “yet another attempt to show Copts that they are not worth anything in this Muslim dominated country.”

    Gobrail pointed to alleged cases of Coptic girls being kidnapped by Muslims in the country. “Our girls are being kidnapped and forced to convert. We can’t build our houses of worship because the government won’t let us and then these terrorists who killed Copts are not being given the full hand of the law? It doesn’t make sense.”

    Egyptian authorities have repeatedly said the attack on the church was not sectarian related, but simply a “criminal act” carried out by deranged individuals. It has done little to appease the Coptic community, which counts for some 10 percent of Egypt’s 80 million people.

    “What are we supposed to do, go and hide?” asked Mary Fahim, a 38-year-old mother of two. “I fear for my children’s safety and now the government doesn’t want to do anything to make us feel as though we are regular citizens in this country.”

    Despite the anger fomenting among the Coptic community, one Coptic journalist told Bikya Masr, speaking on condition of anonymity, that a number of the Coptic grievances in the country are unfounded.

    “They charge their daughters are being kidnapped, but when anyone truly investigates, the stories don’t hold up. Most of the girls simply ran away,” he said, highlighting what he said is a tendency to want to separate the two leading communities in the country. “We all need to live together and be united in the struggle against the government and stop lying about things that happen.”

    The next trial date is scheduled for March 20.

    The law of the Koran is that you support the Islamic brotherhood. To lie, to cheat, to put Islam in a good light. This is pretty obvious and they have absolutely no shame about this.

    My Doctor, Brilliante is just back from visiting her family in Egypt, and says things could not be worse for the Copts. Every day they live in terror. their Coptic Bishop has to hide all around the world. Like do anyone who speaks up against Islam. The Copts, I think have shown dignity and strength throughout this ordeal. So when was a Copt not an Egyptian? This is the insanity of Islam.

  11. Jose Carlos says:

    The ultimate aim, is world caliphate; the intermediate goal is to establish sharia anywhere and everywhere they can, thereby opening the door for parallel legal systems, and legitimizing female mutilation, child marriage, maybe even ‘honor killings’ etc. The result is throwing out our constitution and bill of rights. Will America really allow this? This is worse than the cold war or even illegal immigration from our porous borders.

  12. Gulen movement participants have founded a number of institutions across the world which promote interfaith and intercultural dialogue activities. During the 1990s he began to advocate interreligious tolerance and dialogue. He personally met with leaders of other religions, including Pope John Paul II, the Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomeos, and Israeli Sephardic Head Rabbi Eliyahu Bakshi-Doron.

    The founder and former Board President of Beehive Science and Technology Academy in Salt Lake City, a Gulen-inspired charter school, is now a consultant to the Vice President of Turkey’s Council of Higher Education. It appears loyal followers who do good works for Gulen here in the US get promoted into AKP positions when they return to Turkey.

  14. erol alkan says:

    Well..I don’t know about USA but if the crazy man Gulen comes back to Turkey. Then I will remove my Turkish citizenship I will move to some other country. We just don’t want him back. Since CIA sponsored his stay in USA then americans can keep him if they want. But give us a big favor and don’t send him back to Turkey. We just don’t want this fake man in Turkey

  15. Nihal says:

    I agree with you Erol, but this man´s place is prison. He is going on brainwashing, controlling money and he is poisoning our kids and American kids. He has to be stopped wherever he is.

  16. Turan says:

    Erol; Merhaba!
    I concur, America can have Gulen. Let Gulen poison their kids and leave Turkiye’s children alone. The AKP is done, there is many military coups in Turkiye and now much civil unrest in Central Asia as orchestrated by the AKP- the goal is to have a Pan Turkic Empire. Krygyzstan and Uzbekistan are killing each other. Hillary Clinton is due in Azerbaijan in July, and Gates was just there.
    Amerika tried to use Gulen to get to the natural resources of rich Central Asian Turkic countries and it is now slapping Amerika as Gulen has gotten out of control.

  17. AmericatheBrave says:

    To the Fetullah Gulen poster above. You are all over the Internet trying to justify Gulen’s movement / Cult by implying Gulen is endorsed by world Religious leaders. This is false propaganda. If you have to lie about Gulen’s credibility by bandwagoning with reputable religious leaders you are desperate and weak. You are also a low down liar.

    Patriarch Bartholmew, has been “crucified” by turkey. He or the Greek Orthodox Church (which was in Turkey centuries before the Moslem invasions and Genocides) does not now or ever endorse Islam or Gulen the con artist.

    Rabbi Doron does not endorse Islam or Gulen, I am almost laughing on the floor over this obvious lie. In Turkey there are frequent protests where Turkish people burn the Israeli and American Flags. There is a large anti-Semantism in Turkey – it comes from Gulen’s AKP buddies Erdogan and Gul.

    THE TRUTH: Gulen’s movement worldwide – especially in the USA has bought and bribed their way into “Interfaith dialogue” baloney. Gulen purchased a chair at the Catholic University of Melbourne, Australia. In the USA Rosegarden Cultural Center, Institute of Interfaith Dialogue, Peace Valley Foundation, Philidephia Dialog Forum, Dialogue Foundation are a few of the Gulen’s strategic organizations that frequently invite churches for Islamic seminars, Turkish dinners and many free trips to Turkey along with politicians.

    There is new turkish movie coming out in Turkey next november. It called”5 minarets in New York”. There is 2 turkish policeman coming to New York to bring back a islamic fanatic leader to Turkey and put him in a jail. The movie inspired by Fethullah Gulen’s life in USA. Many Turkish people dislike Fethullah Gulen because of his sneaky activities. I just hope that americans can see soon his real face.

  19. Nacer says:

    You say that the Cops raped that muslim girl….have you stopped to ask the question of the Muslims marrying girls of ages between 4-9 how disgusting and low can muslim religion be!! But I guess that is not called rape and sodomy in there eye…tell me what does a child of the ages of 4-9 know of intercourse!!!
    Is that not called rape of inocent children and that a mother and father would actualy allow such to happen it is very difficult for me to understand this!!

  20. AmericatheBrave says:

    Turkish propaganda always tries to make America and Israel look like satan. Ever see “Valley of the Wolves?” that was the number 1 TV and movie series in Turkey when I was stationed there in 1999 through 2006.

  21. erol alkan says:

    Hello americathebrave

    Well…some Turkish people are upset with USA , since Fethullah Gulen giving permission t live and continue his activities here. Of course many secular Turkish people became upset at USA. As I mentioned there is another movie coming out next november in Turkey. It is called 5 minarets in New york. The story begins with two turkish policeman coming to USA to pick a religious fanatic and bring back to the court and jail in Turkey. Turkey is very complicated country. There is European lands of Turkey (thracia) and there is asian lands of Turkey (anatolia). And in the middle of this there is huge city Istanbul. Even I was born and grown up in Turkey and still can’t figure out who really we are. Sorry to say but as a foreigner you just cannot do it. it is very complicated country.

  23. AmericatheBrave says:

    Yes, it is complicated but I grew to love the people despite the sickness and control of the goverment (I can also say this about the USA and half- dozen other countries)
    What pisses me off as an American is that Sibel Edmonds was treated so poorly for telling the truth. Countries should want more patriots like Sibel, she became an American citizen and proved her loyalty to our security and well being by exposing the garbage bribes in Turkey and the USA. Her reward for being an honest and brillant human being was treated like shit by some people.
    The pro-gulen / Turkish people called her “crazy” or that she was not Turkish but Iranian (her family lived in both places)
    After almost 8 years we are finding that Sibel was telling the truth, they worked so hard to silence her and place gag orders on her (out of national security they claim) The more they tried to discredit her the more she told the truth.
    You decide, which one is credible. My bets are on Sibel Edmonds because everything she talked about is comming to fruition.
    I would love to see a movie about Si’bel. She will have her day and her say.

  24. erol alkan says:

    Dear AmericatheBrave. Yes there are many wrongs in Turkey. As secular Turkish we have big responsibility. Hopefully next elections. We can have better government. But I don’t understand the thing. Even though turks didn’t like sibel edmonds why FBI fired her? And why FBI and CIA doesn’t do anything about Fethullah Gulen and let him stay in USA and continue his sneaky activities. I just wonder if FBI and CIA wants a model islamic republic in Turkey. Then how about like me and other secular Turks we just want a modern secular government. Does Turkey fit in europe? To be honest NO. Does Turkey fit in arabic community? NO. We should work on Black Sea Economic Cooperatio(Bulgaria,Romania,Georgia,etc) that can fit us. I don’t know this is my personal opinion

  25. AmericatheBrave says:

    Merhaba Erol;
    You pose some interesting points. I hope for my friends in Turkey the next government is better for all, but I believe it is difficult as Gul, Erdogan, et al have inflitrated the ranks of government, police, military, media. it is like an incideous cancer inside these core groups.
    Many Turkish people are proud of Sibel and the fact she had more guts that the coward men who hide behind smoke and mirrors. Sibel has never been anything but forthright with her intentions to tell the truth. Almost 8 years after Sibel being dismissed for being a whistleblower, we are finding all of her information to be the truth, it is all playing out. Truth has prevailed!
    Sibel is an example for Turkish and non-Turkish people, willing to put your reputation on the line for doing the right thing.
    You have some good points about where does Turkey fit? I am afraid that Europe nor Arabic countries do not really trust Turkey and never have. Even rogue Islamic countries like Pakistan and Iran my act cordial to Turkey but in reality they do not trust.
    I think the Black Sea Economic Cooperation is why Hillary is going to the Area this week for. Clinton is always trying to mend the fences for Turkey. I would say culturally Bulgaria, Romania and Georgia is not a good fit. The reason is they fear the Turkification of their countries which is already happening. Republic of Georgia was the second Christian Country after Armenia, when they slept with the Devil Turkey and allowed the Caspian Pipeline to be routed in their country to Turkey they are changing. A Gulen school also just opened in Georgia.
    Bulgaria still has strong Turkish influences left over from the Ottoman invasions. Those countries would certainly benefit economically but socially it would be a nightmare but a victory for the current Turkish government.
    My bet is it makes more sense for the Pan Turkic business into Central Asia, Turkey has much in common including the same Turkic languages in Azerbaijan, Tajikistn, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, etc., They are rich in Lithium and other minerals. This is just my personal opinion but your thoughts are interesting. Ironically Gulen’s group started a Pan Turkic Lobbying group in Washington, DC I am told many American politicians and military showed up for the inagural dinner reception. The fact that Gulen has a stronghold of schools in Central Asia tells me this is where Turkey will concentrate their efforts.

  26. erol alkan says:

    Hello americathebrave. Central asian republics are in turmoil. Specially fethullah gulen movement makes bad reputation for Turkey over there. It is very hard to do anything there. Also russia still considers as it is his backyard. I still believe if we have modern and secular governments and if we convincee our neighbours that we are not imparialist to dicate and control. them but we are secular modern country and we can cooperate with them as a team player. I think in order to do this first we have to solve our so many internal. Issues so the other nations can trust us. Yes fethullah gulen started a turkic federation in dc. I just wonder how many turkic members they have? As far as I know fethullah gulen schools closed and the teachers kicked out from. Azerbaijan and uzbekistan. So I think they finally saw the real face of fethullah gulen

  27. AmericatheBrave says:

    I am surprised that Gulen schools would be kicked out of Azerbaijan being they are like the little brother of Turkey. Wouldn’t they follow the lead of Erdogan and Gul?
    Uzbekistan and Krygyzstan have some ethnic issues, there was reports of ethic cleansing last week, but Krygyzstan has had some civil unrest. Is this all caused by outside agitators? No conspiracy theory but a straight question.

    I only made a couple of trips to Kazakhstan, Tajikistan…My impression of the Central Asian countries were although they speak the Turkic language, they have abandoned their religion somewhat. This could be from the USSR days and the Russification that took place.

  28. Little Goose says:

    Shhhit, let’s be careful not to rub each others’ back too much, lest readers do not understand that all these information has been fed by us- Turkish sources- to our fellow American friends for an increased credibility.
