So Gulen and his cronies did what they do best -- they framed the guy, along with many other journalists and had them arrested. It was a good day for the Gulenites and a bad day for freedom of speech.
Of course Gulen denied having anything to do with it, but if you read Sik's book, it will soon become crystal clear that in fact, Gulen and his Turkish mafia had everything to do with it.
According to a story in the Philadelphia Inquirer, when the Turkish newspaper The Zaman asked Gulen about Sik's arrest, he reportedly replied, "Many books against me personally have been published, but I have never been engaged in efforts to prevent the publication of a book" (Gatti).
Sure Gulenites, we believe that like we believe that your cult members are more qualified to teach American students than American teachers, like we believe that you are not extorting money from your own people, and like we believe that you do not threaten, intimidate, harass, and yes -- have people imprisoned -- when they don't conform to your cult mentality.
And the Easter Bunny is on the way...
The book is written in Turkish and requires translation.
