Turkish pro-government media on Thursday said the Turkish intelligence service, the MIT, had participated in the detaining of six Turkish nationals that morning in Moldova and had taken them into an unknown direction.
All six were teachers or students at the Horizont Turkish high-school private chain, which is seen as close to the exiled Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen. One was only 14 years old, but he was shortly released.
"They were taken this morning, but my son and his professor were released. But another professor was taken after they broke down his door,” the father of the teen said.
He added that he feared that the others would be sent to Turkey on the first flight from Chisinau.

Alleged footage where Turkish educators affiliated to Gulen Community are detained in Moldova to be extradited to Turkey at the request of Erdogan Administration.
The detainees were named as Riza Dogan, director of the Durlesti branch of the Horizont school network, Hasan Karacaoglu, deputy general manager, Yasin Ozdil, responsible for public relations at the same school, Ahmet Bilgi, director of Ciocana branch of the school chain and Feridon Tufekci, director of the Ceadir-Lunga branch of the network.
Moldova's secret service, the SIS, stated that it had conducted an operation designed to prevent threats to national security in several localities. The actions were carried out by the SIS Antiterrorist Center.
However, Turkish media claimed it was their own intelligence service, the MIT, that carried out the detentions. "The MIT, which earlier dealt a major blow to FETO’s Balkan branch [Kosovo] ... is now conducting an operation in Moldova," a Turkish media outlet reported.
Turkey routinely styles Gulen supporters as members of the "FETO", the Fethullah Terrorist Organisation.
Turkey's government has vowed to track down and bring home people it sees as linked to Gulen. The Ankara government blames the exiled cleric for a failed coup in Turkey in 2016.
Turkey has also put countries in the Balkans under strong pressure to close down any educational or charitable institutions linked to Gulen.
On March 31, Turgay Sen, a Turkish national and director of the Horizont high-school private chain was detained without explanation by the SIS.
Sen was accused of financing terrorism and banned from leaving the country for 10 days, until April 10. He was released after he filled in a request for political asylum in Moldova to avoid extradition or rendition to Turkey.
Less than two weeks before Sen’s arrest, Moldovan President Igor Dodon announced that he had met his Turkish counterpart Recep Erdogan at Istanbul airport on March 18, and had talked about Turkey repairing the Presidency building in Chisinau, which was damaged in the street riots on April 7, 2009, which toppled the then Communist-led government.
Erdogan was expected in Moldova on August 27 on the National Day of Moldova to open the new Presidential Palace, but the ceremony has been postponed to October.
Dodon said on Wednesday on a TV political show that he expected the Turkish President for the grand opening.
There are five Horizont high schools in Moldova. The educational institution opened in 1993. They host 1,691 pupils and employ about 376 staff from Moldova, Turkey and Albania.
Kosovo and Bulgaria have both returned suspected “Gulenists” to Turkey despite sharp criticism from rights organisations, and sometimes from the EU.
In April, the European Union criticized Kosovo for deporting six Turkish alleged foes of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, saying it raised questions about Kosovo’s respect for human rights. The deportations on March 29 were approved by Kosovo’s interior minister and intelligence chief, prompting their dismissal by Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, who said the officials had acted without his permission. The deportees allegedly had ties to the Gulen movement, which Turkey calls the “FETO terrorist movement”.
In October 2016, Bulgaria returned to Turkey at least six people who were allegedly linked to Gulen networks. Border police found them in Ruse, on the border with Romania, where they had attempted to cross over. After all of them claimed asylum, they were told that they would be taken a refugee centre – but the vehicle took them instead to the Turkish border.
Turkey has continued to pressure Bulgaria over the same issue, however. Turkish Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu recently reportedly asked his Bulgarian counterpart to check 14 organizations and schools where Turkey suspects Gulen supporters work.
In Macedonia, meanwhile, a court in August 2017 fined a dual Macedonian-Turkish citizen, a suspected Gulen supporter, for insulting Turkish President Erdogan on Facebook. Turkish Ambassador Tulin Erkal Kara hailed the court victory, which fined the accused 24,600 Macedonian denars [$4,600], saying it set an example. “All Turkish missions, agencies here carry out a serious struggle against FETÖ traitors and we managed to restrict their activities and this insult case helped us to silence

Kyrgyzstan next to close Gulen CIA schools?

Is Kyrgyzstan under FETO's command? 


https://www.yenisafak.com/en/world/kyrgyzstan-under-fetos-command-2783412
The Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETÖ), which has infiltrated all Turkish state institutions, has also infiltrated the business, education, art and public institutions in Kyrgyzstan. Despite Turkey’s warning Kyrgyzstan continues to tolerate FETÖ’s activities.
Kyrgyz President Almazbek Atambayev has called claims that FETÖ is strong enough to conduct a coup in Kyrgyzstan as “absurd.”
Atambayev has called President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan on five different occasions. In reaction to Atambayev’s dismissive attitude toward FETÖ, Erdoğan did not take the calls.

In his recent two-day visit to Kyrgyzstan, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan continued to exert pressure on Bishkek to take action against the Gulen network, which Ankara accused of staging a failed coup in July 2016.
U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, once an Erdogan ally, is the loose center of a sprawling, amorphous social network. Gulen founded a movement which has, among other things, built and staffed hundreds of schools around the world, including in Central Asia where the schools filled a critical gap left by the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Once a key aspect of Turkish soft power in the region, these schools have since become lightning rods in Turkey’s various contemporary bilateral relationships. After the failed coup, Turkish authorities demanded that Gulen-linked schools be shut down, lest they try to inspire a coup in Kyrgyzstan. That demand was met by prickly then-President Almazbek Atambayev’s sharp tongue: “If Turkey is so smart, why did it miss a coup?”
Kyrgyzstan renamed the schools but didn’t shut them.
Two years later Atambayev is out, Jeenbekov is in, and Turkey is still trying to pressure Kyrgzystan into shutting Gulen-linked schools and organizations. The network of Turkish schools in Kyrgyzstan, known previously as Sebat lyceums, were renamed and reregistered last year, but they were not closed as has happened in Tajikistan and Turkmenistan. Kazakhstan responded in a similar fashion, renaming schools but not shutting them down.
Earlier this year, when Kyrgyz President Sooronbay Jeenbekov made a two-day visit to Turkey — his first foreign visit outside of the former Soviet Union since taking office in November 2017 — the persistent Gulen issue arose. After talks with Jeenbekov, Erdogan said, “We made clear our expectations from Kyrgyzstan in the fight against FETO.”
FETO is what Turkish authorities call Gulen’s network, which it has dubbed the “Fethullah Gulen Terrorist Organization.”
Erdogan then went on to repeat its 2016 refrain suggesting a coup in Kyrgyzstan. “It is such an organization that it has the character to do the same to Kyrgyzstan tomorrow what it did to us today,” Erdogan said before commenting that he believed Jeenbekov “will act more shrewdly and take the needed measures more rapidly.”
At the time, Jeenbekov did not respond directly, only emphasizing his desire for closer relations with Turkey.
Erdogan’s recent foray to Kyrgyzstan included a meeting with his Kyrgyz counterpart, attending a Kyrgyz-Turkish business forum, the opening of a new mosque and a visit to the Kyrgyz-Turkish Manas University for the ceremonial opening of a new medical department, as well as a summit of the Turkic Council and an appearance at the opening of the 3rd World Nomad Games.
In statements with Jeenbekov on September 1, Erdogan reportedly said he didn’t want the relationship to return to its poor 2016 state. He then brought out the old canard, saying that “We don’t want our brotherly people to encounter such problems” like a coup and that Gulen supporters “may infiltrate the interior ministry, military structures, such a coup may happen in Kyrgyzstan as well.”
Jeenbekov in turn emphasized that the schools were under government control and have an excellent reputation. As Chris Rickleton noted in an article for Eurasianet, Erdogan managed to slip a reference to the Gulen network into nearly all of his public appearances.
Turkey continues to hammer at the Gulen issue and Kyrgyzstan continues to hedge, balancing several important concerns.
First, the Gulen schools are critical to Kyrgyzstan’s educational system, which remains weak in significant ways. For example, a new school in Kyzyl-Ozgorush in southern Kyrgyzstan was constructed in 2010, but could fit only 120 students, leaving 600 to use the old school, built in 1957. Last year, the crumbling old school was declared unfit for use and students began classes in yurts, a situation that persists in the new school year, RFE/RL reported recently.
Second, and this follows the first point closely, Gulen schools have operated in Kyrgyzstan successfully for more than two decades. These schools have meaningful domestic constituencies, from former students to the parents of current students.
Third, a good working relationship with Turkey is important for Kyrgyzstan’s economy. While Kyrgyzstan’s trade volumes with Turkey fall behind Kazakhstan, Russia, and China in particular, Turkey remains an important economic partner. Jeenbekov said that the bilateral trade volume between Kyrgyzstan and Turkey was around $356 million, with their eyes set on crossing an ambitious $1 billion one day.
And lastly, one cannot discount the role domestic politics plays in how a state conducts its foreign policy. Jeenbekov’s public split from Atambayev gave the new president an opportunity to at least deal cordially with Erdogan. Jeenbekov may not ultimately bend to Erdogan’s demands, but he hasn’t insulted Turkey outright like Atambayev did. Thus Jeenbekov operates from a stronger position vis-a-vis Turkey than Atambayev had.
For now, Jeenbekov is maintaining the balance: refraining from antagonizing Turkey by rebuffing its insinuations of a pending Gulen-sparked coup while also not antagonizing domestic supporters of the Gulen schools by leaving them open. How far is Turkey willing to go to tip Jeenbekov into action along Ankara’s desired path and how strongly is Jeenbekov willing to resist Turkish pressure?

Republic of Turkey opens school in South Africa

Books are the strongest instruments to fight against cultural corruption,” said the Turkish First Lady Emine Erdoğan. She was speaking at the inauguration of a Tika-erected library at the Houghton Muslim Academy (HMA) on July 27. The library is one of many other Turkish-government backed development aid projects that have cropped up across the country in the past years.
The library at Houghton Muslim Academy opened by Tika
Her husband, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was also in South Africa for the annual Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa (BRICS) summit. The First Lady said Turkey and South Africa share “deep-rooted” and “profound” ties. “I hope that seeds that we will be spreading today will reinforce our future relations, may our friendship be everlasting” she said. As part of the agreement with HMA, the school will add the Turkish language to it’s syllabus.

The Turkish Cooperation Agency (Tika) is the Turkish government arm that provides development aid. Tika also seeks to neutralise another Turkish movement that has been establishing schools and institutions across the country: the Hizmet movement linked to the exiled Turkish Muslim cleric Fethullah Gülen Fethullah Gülen and Hizmet
A network of schools inspired by Gülen operates around the world, often attracting the children of local elites. Gülen’s movement Hizmet, inspired by his teachings, is a Sufi-inspired network of Turkish Muslims dedicated to promoting education, peace and interfaith dialogue. Once supported by the Turkish government, Hizmet enjoys a massive following in Turkey and various parts of the world. South Africa is no exception.
In South Africa, the Gülen movement has established nine schools, as well as the Turquoise Harmony Institute, an inter-faith centre. Nizamiye mosque in Midrand, a prominent landmark, was built by one of Gülen’s most loyal followers.
Hizmet networks among schools, businesses, think-tanks and publications help sustain the movement financially, researcher at the Afro-Middle East Centre (Amec) Matshidiso Motsoeneng said in an interview with The Daily Vox. The movement also has great influence on members of the Turkish political and professional elite which finances it. Additionally, Gülen’s businesses in the United States (US) where he resides are connected to big corporations there.
After the attempted coup in Turkey in July 2016, Erdogan and his Justice and Development Party, abbreviated officially AK Parti (AKP) in Turkish, banned activities linked to Gülen. The Turkish government established the Maarif Foundation in 2016 to take over the administration of overseas schools linked to the Gülen movement. This indicates that it perceives the existence of these schools as a real threat of Gülen’s influence and power.\
The Erdoğan-Gülen conflict
Erdoğan’s gripe with Gülen started years back. The president blamed the botched 2016 coup attempt in Turkey on a faction in the military allied to Gülen, who was once an Erdoğan supporter. Gülen denied all allegations and said Erdoğan has become increasingly authoritarian.

But the conflict began before that in 2010. “Gülen criticised Erdogan’s criticism of Israel and also criticised Turkey’s breaking off dip relations with Israel after the Mavi Marmara incident,” Motsoeneng said.
After that, Gülen criticised the AKP for trying to broker peace agreements with the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party known as the PKK. Then in 2013, corruption allegations were levelled against Erdoğan’s supporters in government which included his son Bilal. The allegations were blamed on Gülen supporters in the police force and the judiciary. This subsequently led to allegations that he was involved in the 2016 attempted coup, Motsoeneng explained.
South Africa-Turkey relations
Despite the First Lady’s talk of the “deep-rooted” and “profound” ties between South Africa and Turkey, this is untrue. The countries do not enjoy very close relations even though recent efforts look set to achieve this, Motsoeneng said.
President Erdoğan himself warned that the Gülen group could infiltrate state institutions in parts of the world where it operates. The president and his AKP party maintain that Gülen institutions are not impartial and apolitical but rather serve an agenda promotes Gülen following and undermines Turkish sovereignty, Motsoeneng said.
“A lot of these accusations levelled against the Gülen schools have not been proven in South Africa even though Erdoğan has submitted documents to the government relating to them,” she said. However, South Africa does not regard the movement as a terrorist group or as posing any official threat to the country.
The Hizmet schools have existed in South Africa for quite some time, without much opposition. However, Motsoeneng said the schools are not apolitical. “They have been vocal about political issues taking place in Turkey as well as Turkey’s presence and relations with South Africa,” she said.
Tika, on the other hand, has been widely used to promote Turkish cultural diplomacy in many parts of the world. “I think as the Turkish push against the schools and institutions linked to the Hizmet intensifies, we will see more of the fight off between the two,” Motsoeneng said. “Whether or not this will impact South Africa remains to be seen as Turkey hopes to establish itself more in southern Africa,” she added.

2 Gulen Movement members abducted from Azerbaijan and Ukraine

bringing the total to 82 (that we know of)  from over 71 countries, soon they will circle in on the USA operation and no American official will help them. 

https://turkeypurge.com/turkish-intelligence-agency-catches-2-more-gulen-followers-abroad-returns-them-to-turkey
Turkish Intelligence Agency (MIT) has abducted two overseas followers of the Gulen movement and forced them back to Turkey in the latest of such forced returns by the organization.
“MIT caught abroad another two terrorists with outstanding arrest warrants, as part of its operations under the fight against FETO,” state-run Anadolu news agency said Thursday.
The detainees were identified as Isa Ozdemir and Salih Zeki Yigit who were forced back in a private jet, operated by MIT, from Azerbaijan and Ukraine, respectively. The pair are accused of membership to the Gulen movement which the government calls FETO.
Media reported Wednesday that a Baku court had, earlier in the day, turned down Turkey’s request for Ozdemir’s deportation and the man was released from the detention center.
Turkish president Erdoğan accuses the Gülen movement of masterminding a failed coup attempt in Turkey in 2016 while the latter denies involvement.
More than 150,000 people have been detained and 90,000 were remanded in prison over Gulen links in Turkey since the summer of 2016. Meanwhile, Erdogan called on foreign governments to punish Gulenists in their own countries.
So far, a number of countries like Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Georgia and Myanmar handed over academics, businessmen and school principals upon the Turkish government’s request despite the fact that some of those victims already had refugee status with the United Nations.
According to Turkish government’s narrative, MIT conducts such operations by itself in some countries and brings the suspects back without involvement of any other foreign law enforcement.

Gulen Movement members meeting in Church, brother in law of Adil Oksuz



Turkish people only accept ancient Eastern Christianity - Orthodox, Syriac, et al,
they dont recognize these people just using them for space.
By Ertugrul Cingil and Islam Dogru
NEW JERSEY
Members of the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) living in the U.S. state of New Jersey are using a church as their meeting place, as revealed by video footage of the group, which was also responsible for the defeated coup in Turkey nearly two years ago.
Anadolu Agency filmed the FETO members during their evening meetings at the Cliffside Park borough in New Jersey.
There is a nearby Turkish community mosque, the Diyanet Mosque of Bergen, but the FETO members instead congregate at the Trinity Episcopal Church.
Abdulhadi Yildirim, accused financier of the FETO terror group and brother-in-law of Adil Oksuz, Turkey's most wanted coup attempt suspect, are among those who attend.
Anadolu Agency has also filmed Yildirim in front of his luxury car dealership in New Jersey’s Edgewater borough talking to his employees and kissing an American flag, then handing the flag to an employee to kiss.
The church footage also shows Alp Aslandogan, executive director of the Gulen-linked Alliance for Shared Values, among the FETO members attending the church meetings.
FETO is behind the June 15, 2016 defeated coup in Turkey, which martyred 250 people and left 2,200 injured.

Full access to building

After leaving their vehicles in a private parking lot, FETO members open the doors of the church by themselves, as there is no staff on duty.
The footage also showed one FETO member giving a military-style salute to another at the church entrance.
The footage also captured FETO members turning off the lamps of the church and locking the church gate after finishing their meeting.

Ties with church

The church and the members of FETO apparently have long had strong connections.
The website of the New Jersey branch of the Turkish Cultural Center -- FETO's umbrella organization -- shows information and footage of the visits and activities with the Trinity Episcopal church.
The webpage shows various events such as a visit to the church pastor Willie J. Smith and joint events at the church with Arzu Kaya Uranli, a FETO-linked journalist with shuttered daily Today’s Zaman, and Zaman America webpage Editor Sitki Ozcan.
The Trinity Episcopal Church -- known for a liberal stance and favoring interfaith dialogue -- includes also content on its good relations with FETO on its website.
