“MADRASSAH” POPS UP ON U.S. MARINE BASE
FUNDING COMES FROM US TAXPAYERS

The Gulen Movement has launched an invasion of Hawaii.
Members of the Islamic movement which seeks to establish a universal caliphate have established their newest charter school on a U.S. Marine base in Kailuna.
The school, which will be funded by US taxpayers, is called the Mokapu STEM School.
Like the 140 Gulen schools in mainland America, the Mokapu STEM School will be controlled by a board of Turkish administrators, who will indoctrinate students in Turkish culture, religion, and language so that they may play a future part in the restoration of the Ottoman Empire.
The proposal for the school shows that the Monapu STEM School will represent an expansion of the Daisy Education Corporation, a Gulen firm, which operates the Sonoran Science Academy schools in Arizona, and the Paragon Education Corporation, another manifestation of the militant Islamic movement.
The proposal further states that the school will be securing educational services from the Accord Institute of Educational Research, another tentacle of the Gulen octopus.
Kazim Z. Gumus, who worked at the Gulen Harmony School in Texas, is a member of the Interim Board of the new Hawaiian school, along with three Turks affiliated with the Daisy Education Corporation and the Paragon Education Corporation.
Many of the teachers at the Monapu STEM School will come not from the local pool of unemployed teachers in Hawaii but from Islamic schools and academies in Turkey.
This pattern of staffing has been established by the Daisy and Paragon Corporations which have secured 149 H1B visas and 4 Green Cards for teachers in six of their Gulen-inspired charter schools.
To many Hawaiians, the appearance of a Gulen school within their islands may appear to be an event of minor significance.
The reverse is true.
The Gulen schools are so subversive that they have been outlawed in such countries as Russia and Uzbekistan. The funding for these institutions has been curtailed in the Netherlands.
The schools – which fuel the Gulen movement – have been responsible for transformation of Turkey 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.
Many Americans might think of schools called “the Beehive Academy”,“the Chesapeake Science Point School” or “Sonoran Science Academy” as altruistic institutions that serve the common good of the American people, but names are deceptive and the Gulen movement operates under the Islamic principle of taqiyya or “holy deception.”
Fethullah Gulen, the 68-year-old founder of the schools and the movement, represents an embodiment of this principle. In his public statements, Gulen has espoused a liberal version of Sunni/Hanafi Islam by promoting the Muslim notion of hizmet – altruistic service to the common good. He has condemned terrorism, advocated interfaith dialogue, and met with such religious dignitaries as Pope John Paul II, the Greek Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomeos, and Israeli Sephardic Head Rabbi Eliyahu Bakshi-Doron.
In private, Gulen has stated that in order to reach the ideal Muslim society “every method and path is acceptable,[including] lying to people.”
Nurettin Veren, a top administrator of the Gulen schools says: “These schools are like shop windows. Recruitment and Islamization activities are carried out through night classes.”
