    Yesterday Gulen was a distinguished citizen of Turkiye. Today under Erdogan's dictatorship, the same Gulen is a criminal who caused the July 15 coup attempt actually at least in my mind Erdogan orchestrated to eliminate the opposition which was a
    hindrance to him in converting Democratic Republic of Turkiye into a Neo-Ottoman, Islamist state. Now Erdogan wants the USA hand over Gulen with a retroactive death penalty pending in his hands.

    Former PM Davutoğlu met Gülen in US: Ex-AKP lawmaker

    Mesut Hasan Benli - ANKARA

    A former lawmaker from Turkey’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has said former Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu visited the U.S.-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen at his home in Pennsylvania with his family and stayed with him for more
    than four hours.

    “In those days, the AKP had great obedience to him [Gülen],” İlhan İşbilen told the court during the second hearing of the case of the July 15 failed coup attempt, believed to have been masterminded by the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization (FET

    “He [Gülen] had pictures taken with all AKP lawmakers. They all visited him. Everybody has visited him in that house in the past four years,” he added.

    İşbilen also denied claims that he was Gülen’s “successor,” and denied being a member of FETÖ.

    “I have nothing to do with any of the cases, and I don’t know who carried out the coup,” he said.

    Upon questioning, İşbilen said he did not consider FETÖ to be a “terrorist organization.”

    Meanwhile, during the hearing he was also particularly asked about his phone conversations with former Culture Minister Ertuğrul Günay.
