Interview with Turkish Newspaper on Hizmet in Africa

Sunday's Zaman, a Turkish paper associated with the Gulen Movement, published on 19 September 2015 an interview with me titled "Former US Diplomat: War on Turkish Schools in Africa Ruining Turkey's Credibility." 

The interview was based on my recent book, Hizmet in Africa: The Activities and Significance of the Gulen Movement, published by Tsehai Publishers in Los Angeles.  The interview focused almost entirely on the 110 or so schools that Hizmet operates throughout Africa.

One way that Hizmet could reduce criticism leveled against it would be to engage in greater transparency, for example publishing a list of all the Hizmet-affiliated schools throughout the world.  Such a list does not exist publicly.  I have no doubt that my compilation of Hizmet schools in Africa has several errors of omission and possibly of commission, but it is the most up-to-date and complete list available.
