Madeleine Albright’s remarks about Gulen Movement


Date posted: June 22, 2013

Madeleine Albright’s remarks: “In a world that lacks direction, there can be no doubt that a pathfinder is needed. It is much more likely to be found in the values that reside at the heart of the Gülen Institute and this luncheon series. These values include commitment to international dialogue, an understanding of cultural diversity, support for human justice and a love of peace.”
