Why Did Ontario’s Trillium Foundation Give Turkey’s Alleged Coup Plotter Fethullah Gülen $500,000.00 Of Tax Payer Money?

Gulen Movement Of Cda - IDI linkThe Intercultural Dialogue Institute is a branch of the Gulen Movement Of Canada, and a part of Fethullah Gülen’s Hizmet empire of influence.

Fethullah Gülen has been named as the power behind the coup to oust Turkey’s Recep Erdogan.

Why the USA has sheltered Gulen is open to speculation.

What isn’t open to speculation is the string of investigations launched against Gulen schools in the US and the longstanding doubts about the Gulen Movement’s ultimate intentions.

Fethullah Gülen’s anti-semitism has been carefully scrubbed from the web in an effort to paint both he and his organization as moderate.

“The project will cost about three million dollars. Thanks to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their contribution of $500,000 as the Community Capital Fund”

I care little for either party in this matter, a plague on both their houses.

    Before shipping Gulen back to Turkey, the Turks need to take a look at Erdogan’s destruction of the freedom of the press, of the judiciary and of dissent. Turkey’s democracy is at risk which might explain why elements of the military wanted to overthrow the dictator Erdogan. As for antisemitism in the Gulen movement, Erdogan’s Muslim supporters are just as bad. Let’s face it, no Islamic country likes Jews.

    Here in Sunny Ways Ontario, we love to give money to anyone who stands for islam, homosexuals or whiny indians. As far as Turkey is concerned, never trust the Turks.

  • That’s a good question…

    … that won’t be answered.

    I would still like Wynne to tell everyone about those deleted e-mails.

    Is this the “Trillium Foundation” from Prov of Ontario or the Parya
    Trillium Foundation which is private but with Iranian connections? Kathleen Wynne donated to the Parya Trillium Foundation and was listed as a “Friend” on their website.

    • It is the Ontario Trillium Foundation as directly quoted from the IDI site.

    Our enemy’s enemy is no friend in this instance.
