Storm Track Infiltration: Turkey’s Ayatollah Khomeini?

When the Shah of Iran fell from power, Ayatollah Khomeini stepped in and turned Iran into the first fundamentalist Islamic state. If a man named Fethullah Gülen came to power in Turkey, that country might go the way of Iran.

Who is Fethullah Gülen? He is Turkey’s most prominent theologian and political thinker. The web site WMD – War to Mobilize Democracy – has a very good article that explains the man and the threat.

Here are some excerpts that will introduce you to Mr. Gülen. Keep an eye on this man. He just may be the future of Turkey. – and he has the support of West, just as Khomeini did at first.

Read the rest at The Gathering Storm.

Liberals seem to have an extreme double standard when it comes to Islam and Christianity. If Fethullah Gülen was a Christian fundamentalist, instead of a Islamic fundamentalists, and said something alone the lines of "Secularism is state sponsored atheism," they wouldn't stand for it.

But because he a Muslim, he gets a pass. Not only that they seem to be acting like he's the best thing for Turkey since sliced bread. Don't get me wrong, I am a supporter of secularism, but as I said before, the separation of church and state is worthless if there are exceptions for some religions. If your a liberal secularist, ask yourself if you would feel any differently about Gülen and his threats if he were a Christian Fundamentalists. Stop with the Islamophobia nonsense! When was the last time any main stream Christian leader called for the death or subjugation of all unbelievers. When was the last time, even the main stream of the religious right, openly called for the overthrow of the U.S government and the establishment of a Christian theocracy?
