At the schools, which have been “inspired” by Imam Fethullah Gulen,
students are immersed in Turkish customs, rituals, and language. They
take part in so-called “Turkish Olympics” and are encouraged to make
annual pilgrimages to Istanbul and Ankara. The schools allegedly foster
the dream of the restoration of the Ottoman Empire and dismiss all
accounts of the Armenian Christian holocaust as fanciful myths.

The Walton Family derived its vast fortune – - estimated at $89.5 – - from Sam and Bud Walton, the founders of Wal-Mart.
In California, the Walton Family Foundation has donated
approximately $1 million to the Magnolia Science Academies that have
been “inspired” by Gulen and his movement.
Similarly, the Waltons have provided sizeable checks to similar
Gulen charter schools, including the Indiana Math and Science
Foundation which received $230,000 in 2007.
During the same year, the Waltons gave the same amount to Noble
Academy Charter School in Ohio, the Abramson Science and Technology
Charter School in Louisiana, and the Noble Academy Charter School in
Ohio – - all of which uphold Gulen’s teachings and ideology.
Another Gulen-inspired institution – - the Lisa Academy Charter School in Arkansas – - was granted $154,244.

of the Walton Family Foundation to the Gulen schools in 2009 have not

Fethullah Gulen has been labeled “the most dangerous Islamist on planet earth.”
In 1998, he fled his native Turkey to escape arrest on government
charges that he sought to overthrow the secular Ataturk government.
With his vast fortune – - estimated by the U.S. Justice Department
to exceed $25 billion – - Gulen found refuge in Pennsylvania, where he
established a mountain fortress on 45 acres of land in the rural
community of Saylorsburg.
From Saylorsburg, Gulen worked to transform the secular government
of Turkey into an Islamic Republic under the Justice and Democratic
Party (Adalet ve Kalkinma, AKP)- – a party under the Gulen’s control.
