Uzbeks roll up group linked to mysterious U.S.-linked Turkish Islamic sect

Uzbeks roll up group linked to mysterious U.S.-linked Turkish Islamic sect

George Soros and CIA in the shadows...

The conviction and sentencing to an Uzbek labor camp of five Uzbek nationals -- Abdul Dadahanov, Bakhrom Ibrahimov, Davron Kabilov, Rovshanbek Favoyev and Botyrbek Eshkuziyev -- for supporting what the Uzbek government calls "a Turkish radical religious movement," has thrown the spotlight on a mysterious and powerful Islamic movement in Turkey that has been linked to the CIA.

Dadahanov previously studied at Connecticut's Fairfield University on a scholarship from George Soros' Open Society Institute. The five Uzbeks were arrested in a general crackdown by the Uzbek government on "Nurcilar," a moderate Turkish Muslim movement with Sufi Muslim beliefs that is linked to the Turkish Islamic movement of Pennsylvania-based Fethullah Gulen.

Nurcilar, also called "Nursi," is particularly active in Tashkent's Islamic Institute. The Uzbek human rights group Ezgulik, in a February 27, 2009, statement stated that followers of "the Nur movement led by Fethullah Gulen" were arrested in February.

On December 2, 2008, We reported: "a suspected CIA-funded Turkish Islamic charismatic madrassa and Islamic centers chief named Fethullah Gulen [maintains] activities [that run]parallel to [the] pan-Turkic/Eurasianist (re: George Soros is CIA2...) goals of Ergenekon."

We added, "In polls, some one-third of the Turkish public believe Islamist Nurcu sect charismatic leader Grand Hodja Fethullah Gulen, who lives in Pennsylvania, is part of a movement that aims to seize control of the Turkish state and a little over a third believe that Gulen is funded by 'international powers.' After he was acquitted in Turkey of attempting to overthrow the secular state with his religious organization, Gulen was first denied a Permanent Resident Card or 'Green Card' to remain in the United States by the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania but then an appeals court granted Gulen a Green Card. In October of this year, a federal appellate court found that U.S. immigration authorities improperly rejected Gulen's request for a Green Card. The appeals court ruled that Gulen was 'an alien of extraordinary ability,' a decision that saw approval of Gulen's residency status. Observers of the case suspect the CIA intervened with the court on Gulen's behalf . . . The Bush administration, after seven years of trying to deport Gulen to Turkey, suddenly dropped its opposition to his permanent residency status. The public prosecutor in the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) case against Gulen's permanent residency status argued in filed documents that Gulen's movement was financially supported by Saudi Arabia, Iran, the Turkish government, and the 'Central Intelligence Agency.' The deposition stated that some Ankara businessmen donated up to 70 percent of their income to Gulen's movement."

The Uzbek case against Dadahanov is not the first time someone who was linked to Soros has also been linked to Gulen and the Nurcilar movement. Soros is also active in other nations where Gulen's organization has significant influence, including Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, and the Russian mainly Muslim autonomous republics of Tatarstan, Bashkortostan, Dagestan, and Karachay-Cherkessia.

On November 15, 2008, Karina Korostelina, a Fellow of the European Research Center of Migration and Ethnic Relations (ERCOMER), who has received grants from the Soros CIA Foundation and the neocon U.S. Institute for Peace, wrote the following about Gulen in a manner strikingly similar to how Unification Church leader and South Korean intelligence money conduit is often described by his followers:

"Fethullah Gülen, the spirited advocate for peace, tolerance and peaceful coexistence, has stressed the importance of positive perception and understanding between Muslim and non-Muslim population."

The following is from the Sun Myung Moon website: Moon believes in "peace based on the values of family and religious tolerance and reconciliation."

On January 10, 2007, We reported: "According to Federal law enforcement sources, two influential businessmen -- Turkish Sunni Muslim Fetullahci charismatic leader Fetullah Gulen, who lives in Pennsylvania after being acquitted in Turkey in 2006 of plotting against the secular republic, and Saudi BMI Islamic investment chief investor Yasin Qadi, a major investor in Turkey who was named in October 2001 by President Bush as a Special Designated Global Terrorist -- were both involved with the CIA in the late 1990s in funneling weapons and other support to the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), an Albanian terrorist group operating in the former Yugoslavia. The KLA was allied with the Clinton administration and supported by leading neo-cons such as Richard Perle, whose lobbying firm, International Advisors, Inc., counts Turkey as its major client. Gulen's books have been translated into Albanian."

We can also report that Gulen's activities were of particular interest to FBI electronic surveillance of Turkish intelligence operations in the United States before, during, and after 9/11.
