It would be very interesting to find out whose ally Fethullah Gülen in fact is considering the fact that 1/ he has been operating his network of schools not from the wilderness of southern Turkey or Saudi Arabia but from the mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania ,his address being 1857 Mt. Eaton Road in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania, and that 2/ "in 2008 a federal court ruled that Gulen was an individual with "extraordinary ability in the field of education' who merited permanent residence status in the U.S." even though he has no formal education or training. It seems that his unholy agenda is being supported and promoted by much more powerful forces and interests than than those of imam Erdogan.
