“Any form of attack, suppression or persecution of minorities or innocent civilians is an act that contradicts the principles of the Quran.”-Fethullah Gulen

The scholar also sent his condolences to the families and friends of the deceased in Iraq and Syria, and to the family and friends of slain journalist James Foley.

An influential author, Gulen topped the Foreign Policies 100 Global Thinkers list in 2008, he currently resides in rural Pennsilvania.
