Don't Pull so Tight
It's not easy being a puppet. Your strings tend to get tangled, your body never seems to really take shape, and you are always at the hands of the master puppeter.
So why do they do it? Why do Gulen's followers agree to lie, steal, and cheat at any cost? Why do they use the tenets of Islam to justify their criminal activies? And why, oh why, do they allow him to pull their strings until they are worn and frazzled?
I've read Gulen's brain-washing propaganda. It's simple, so simple, it reminds me of Ghaddafi's "green book." It has little substance, but looks really good on paper. It is a rambling dialogue of superficial fluff that is packaged in a really nice cover of religious overlay. It's perfect puppet reading.
But what happens if the puppets start to feel that the strings are being pulled a little too much, that the strings are just a bit too tight, that their movements are somewhat restricted, and of course, their voices silenced (I forgot, puppets don't talk, do they?)
What happens if they don't follow the Tuzuk's contractual agreement and want to actually keep their full salaries? What happens if they talk to outsiders (or foreigners as they like to call it) about the "organization?" What happens if a puppet marries a non-Muslim woman who actually expects to have equal rights (go figure...?)
If that happens, the puppet will be visited by the puppet master's "mechanic" who will attempt to repair the puppet by threatening him and his family (doesn't matter that his elderly mother just had open-heart surgery), his livelihood, defame his reputation, and of course --make certain that he is framed and thrown in jail -- after all -- he's just a puppet.
Keep pulling the strings Gulen ... but remember -- even the best puppet master will eventually lose the ability to pull the strings -- it's only a matter of time.
