What took them so long? We should never have allowed this group to move into Greece

OMG, how shocking.
How will we force them to employ UNION teachers to fill their kids heads with CRAP.
This could endanger Union benefits in Pubic Skewlz.

To 1:34PM ~~ You've missed the point/s. Personally, I'm NOT happy to know that my tax $$'s are likely being laundered to fund terrorism through these folks.

SCATS I am not sure you can call Gulen a terrorist group just because, although one a friend, they are now enemies of the authoritarian leader Erdogan. It is however a money laundering scheme to the extent that a lot of money is funneled back to Gulen for political activities in Turkey and elsewhere. And of course the big checks Gulen officials gave to the Clinton foundation.

To 7:14PM ~~ There is almost nothing anyone agrees upon in relation to these businesses, their operations, goals, etc. The teacher named Ersin Konkur stated: "If I don't pay, they can send me, tomorrow, to my country and I cannot ask for my rights," he said. "There is no way. It's like enslavement."

To me, that sounds potentially terrifying.

I agree completely that Gulen is a nasty piece of work. My only disagreement is with your characterization of the group as terrorist. That means things like bombings or shootings or other attacks on innocent civilians to create fear and insecurity in the broader population. What you describe is more like a racket that extorts protection from people who are in a vulnerable position. In that way is it more like a criminal organization.

SCATS said...

To 10:30PM ~~ First of all, we said "likely" ... secondly, there's lots of denial by those associated with them about their actual connection to Gulen schools. Add to that the money laundering, political and religious associations and extremely fuzzy business connections, and I'd say it is impossible to assure they have no terrorist connections.

Are they going to have big loudspeakers up there in the bell tower with some guy screeching from them 5 times a day?

That could cover a lot of distance from up there on Paddie Hill.

SCATS said...

To 11:56PM ~~ Unlikely, because the new mosque in Gates is nearly complete and sitting on grounds owned by the Turkish Society of Rochester. Wait until their neighbors discover what's going on ...

Here's a breakdown of the stories right now at Virginia Butler
Jim Leary

When retired Greece police officer Jim Leary announced Monday that he would run for town supervisor as a Democrat, he became the second enrolled Republican to switch parties in the hopes of upending a GOP incumbent.

Leary will challenge Supervisor Bill Reilich's bid for a second term. While his former chief, Todd Baxter, previously announced a run against Sheriff Patrick O'Flynn.

"You can sit on the sidelines and be a complainer," Leary said. "But if you want to change things, you have to get in the game."

The 61-year-old said he had been a Republican all his life but became dissatisfied with the local party, which controls all elected offices in town. He did not talk to Baxter before deciding to jump into politics, he said, but took encouragement from his decision to change parties.

Democrats hope to field a full slate of candidates for Greece town offices this fall, he said. Republicans hold a slight enrollment advantage, Board of Elections records show.

Leary is born and raised in Greece, where he lives with his two daughters. He lost his wife to cancer several years ago. He has been a volunteer firefighter and ambulance member and worked in other capacities, including sports leagues and local boards.

If elected, he said, he would "bring a culture in which I will have both an open door, and an open mind." Added Jamie Romeo, chairwoman of the Monroe County Democratic Party: "For too long, Greece Town Hall has operated as a surrogate office for the Monroe County Republican Party, rather than a resource for the residents in town."

Reilich, 60, countered by listing off various projects, from recreation to a new police station, a town Fourth of July celebration at no expense to taxpayers, and that he had not raised the tax rate while in office, adding: "I don't hear anybody really complaining."

"We're taking care of residents' needs," Reilich said. "Just ask anybody that lives on the lakefront."

Reilich said he didn't know Leary beyond that he spent three decades with the Police Department and retired "still a police officer."
