Arkansas Congressional Candidate Chad Causey Allied With Dangerous Islamist

Fethullah Gulen has been called the most dangerous Islamist in the world and has been exiled from Turkey. 1  So just why did  Democrat  candidate for  US Representative Chad Causey post a glowing report   on Gulen's website describing his $3,020.00 trip to Turkey that he took in 2008. 2  Causey's trip was sponsored by the Rumi Forum for Interfaith Dialogue and approved my Representative Marion Berry. 3   Rumi Forum's website confirms that Fetuallh Gulen is  Honorary President of the Rumi Forum. 4

Gulen is known for the schools he has established around the world  and has been called by some a  Turkish Khomeini. 5  USA Today reported in an article covering the controversial aspects of Gulen that "Gulen was charged with trying to create an Islamic state in Turkey."  6  Turkey's National Security Council condemned Gulen for "trying to undermine the country's secular institutions, concealing his methods behind a democratic and moderate image."  7  Gulen fled Turkey in 1998 to avoid prosecution on these charges of trying to establish an Islamic government.  8

"According to Bayram Balci, a Turkish scholar, the Gulen schools that have been established throughout the world seek… to bring about a universal caliphate ruled by Islamic [Sharia] law.  9   Fethullah Gülen trained and worked as a state imam from 1959 to 1981.   10

 "Several countries have outlawed the establishment of Gulen Schools and communities within their borders—including Russia and Uzbekistan," and the Netherlands that embraces pluralism and tolerance has cut funding for the Gulen schools.  11

Just why would Rumi Forum sponsor a $3,020.00 trip for Chad Causey as Chief of Staff for Marion Berry to  go to Turkey?  Obviously the intent of the Rumi Forum and Gulen was to feed Causey propaganda in an effort to gain favors of some sort and perhaps to seek Causey's help to establish some charter schools in Arkansas – of course under pretense of bringing Christians and Muslims together under "interfaith dialogue." Ninety of these charter schools have been established in the United States already and paid for by taxpayers.  12

But how many parents would send their children to Gulen-inspired schools if they knew what they were all about? They bring many Muslim teachers from Turkey to work in these charter schools. 13  

And why would Causey go on the trip? Did he fail to investigate this organization and learn about Gulen's controversial techniques before going on the trip.  And why did Causey''s glowing report on the trip show up on Gulen's website.  On  Rumi and Gulen's part, I am sure it was to enhance their standing among governmental officials.  Did Causey still fail to see through the Rumi Forum on "interfaith dialogue." After he made the trip?  Or does he hold the philosophy as many liberals do that all religions are equal and have the same root. Or does he have a soft spot for the Muslim nation as does the leader of his Democrat Party, President Obama?

Before any Arkansans  consider voting for Causey to a position of great power in this country, they need to know the answers to these questions.
