Why is the Gülen movement more successful than any other Muslim movement in Turkey or even outside of Turkey? Is the Gülen movement really chosen by God and making his followers “the chosen ones”? Who introduced Gülen to the Washington Circle? What was the role of the Jewish community, such as the Anti-Defamation League, in promoting him in the USA? Gülen and his followers are opportunistic.
They know how to use people and systems for their purpose; for example, in the eighties he positioned himself against Communism to get the support of the USA. Gülen never takes risks but rather finds the direction of the wind, and then his followers will do anything to succeed. I would not be surprised if Gülenists have already infiltrated the CIA.
In the past Dr. Necip Hablemitoglu, professor of history at Ankara University studied the relation of Fethullah Gülen’s community with the CIA. In his study he claimed that the CIA used Fethullah Gülen or that Gülen worked for the CIA.
Dr. Hablemitoglu was assassinated in 2002, and his case has still not been solved. Regarding Gülen’s connection to the CIA, former Turkish Intelligence Chief, Osman Nuri Gundes, in his memoir claimed that Gülen’s movement has been providing cover for the CIA since the mid-1990s, and that in the 90s, the movement sheltered 130 CIA agents at its schools in Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan alone. The memoir revealed that the CIA operates in Central Asia by using the Gülenists’ movement.
Furthermore, the Washington Post, hastening its news sells, printed the partial and prejudiced coverage of this recently published memoir by Chief Gundes. I think that the publication was an important piece although not a fair, objective news analysis, but rather a marketing tool and a kind of propagandistic journalism for the Gülenists, Fethullah Gülen has a Secret Connection with the CIA.If Gülen does not have a secret agenda, then why would his followers be so secretive?
The truth never envelops itself in mystery, yet we see that Gülenists’ claims about tolerance, interfaith dialogue, justice, peace and equality slowly reveal the reality behind the movement as it developed in
